2021 Fantasy Outlook
Coming off a huge year at LSU — 126-84-1,780-20 — with 21.2 YPC and 14.1 YPT, Chase opted out in 2020, but it didn’t seem to cost him. In fact, he boosted his stock at his pro day with a 4.38 40, 41-inch vertical and 11-foot broad jump. The Bengals drafted him fifth overall, pairing Chase with his former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow. At 6-0, 201, Chase has only average size, but he’s bigger and heavier than most burners, and his athleticism will present a problem for cornerbacks tasked with checking him downfield. Don’t expect a massive target share out of the gate, however, as the 6-4, 215-pound Tee Higgins had a strong rookie year in 2020, and slot-man Tyler Boyd will see his looks. Still, the Bengals have no reliable tight ends, so they could rank top-five in cumulative WR targets for a third straight year under head coach Zac Taylor. Burrow, with whom Chase already has an excellent rapport, is expected to be ready for the start of the year. Read Past Outlooks

Reunited with Burrow in Cincy

April 29, 2021
The Bengals selected Chase in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, fifth overall.
ANALYSIS
The 2019 Biletnikoff Award winner, given to the most outstanding receiver in college football, is reunited with his former quarterback in Cincinnati. Burrow and Chase helped create one of the most electric passing games in college football history with Chase catching 84 of 126 targets for 1,780 yards (14.1 YPT) and 20 touchdowns in 14 games. Chase (6-foot, 201 pounds) opted out of the 2020 season but reminded everyone why he was the best receiver prospect in this class at LSU's Pro Day by running a 4.38-second 40-yard dash and posting a 41-inch vertical. He projects to be an instant impact player opposite Tee Higgins in the Cincinnati offense.
