Ja'Marr Chase thrives, Tee Higgins nosedives

Ja'Marr Chase Headshot

The Bengals’ passing game exploded in Week 13 vs. the Jaguars, headlined by a tremendous 11-149-1 receiving line from superstar WR Ja’Marr Chase. His 31.6 PPR points in the contest rank as Chase’s second-highest total this season and should assuage any concerns about his ability to produce with QB Jake Browning under center. While fantasy managers can feel confident in Chase moving forward, it may be time to get worried about his teammate Tee Higgins. In his first game back from a Week 9 hamstring injury, Higgins drew a minuscule 3 targets (fourth on the team) on Monday night and finished with 3 catches for 36 yards. This is now the fifth time in Higgins’ eight healthy games he’s hauled in 3 or fewer catches and failed to record double-digit PPR points. It’s probably best to leave the soon-to-be free agent on your bench headed into the fantasy playoffs.
