News: 6 days agoChase had five catches for 31 yards on eight targets in the Bengals' Week 2 loss to the Ravens.
Spin: The Bengals struggled to unlock Chase, with almost all of his targets coming on shorter routes. Teammate Joe Burrow appeared to tweak his calf injury very late in the game, which could continue to drag down Chase's production next week against the Rams.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Chase is entering his third NFL season following a 2022 campaign in which he missed five games, but he saw a big uptick in usage (24% to 29% target share) and fantasy production (17.9 to 20.2 fantasy PPG) compared to his rookie campaign. The 2021 first-round pick has finished top 5 among WRs in touchdowns, end zone targets and fantasy PPG in both of his professional seasons. The Bengals called the league's second-pass heaviest offense last season, and Chase has separated himself from Tee Higgins as Joe Burrow's clear No. 1 target. The 23-year-old is an elite fantasy option and a candidate to pace the WR position in points this season.
