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

Scores another TD
WRCincinnati Bengals
September 19, 2021
Chase caught two of his four targets for 54 yards and a TD in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Bears.
ANALYSIS
Meanwhile, fellow WR Tee Higgins caught six of his team-high 10 targets for 60 yards and a TD and slot man Tyler Boyd hauled in seven of his nine targets for 73 yards. Chase's 42-yard TD saved his day from a fantasy perspective, but the rookie's volume took a dip Sunday after he caught five of seven targets for 101 yards and a TD in his regular-season debut last weekend. The LSU product will look to carve out a bigger target share in Week 3, when the Bengals travel to Pittsburgh.
