Reaches 100 catches in finale
WRCincinnati Bengals
January 7, 2024
Chase caught four of six targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 31-14 win over the Browns. He finishes the season with 100 catches on 145 targets for 1,216 yards and seven touchdowns.
ANALYSIS
Chase took a back seat in the season finale to Joe Mixon and Andrei Iosivas, who scored two touchdowns apiece. The star wideout battled a shoulder injury down the stretch, and playing without Joe Burrow (wrist) after Week 11 didn't help matters, but Chase still posted the first 100-catch season of his three-year career. With Burrow expected back healthy next season, Chase should remain among the first few wide receivers off the board in fantasy drafts.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
Chase enjoyed one of the best rookie seasons in NFL history last year, instantly proving worthy of the No. 5 pick. Reports from training camp about repeated drops became a distant memory before long ... even though he ultimately committed a league-high 11. The Bengals aren't complaining, in light of the damage Chase did on his 81 catches, finishing second in YPT and YPR and third in YAC (651). He used 4.34 speed to beat defenders over the top — catching 15 of 34 deep targets for 576 yards and eight TDs — but he wasn't overly reliant on go routes, also posting efficient stats on shorter throws (he caught 48 of 62 targets within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage, and 18 of 27 in the 10-to-19-yard range). If you're looking for negatives, Chase has serious competition for targets, namely from fellow wideout Tee Higgins, who technically got more looks per game than the rookie last year (7.8 to 7.5). But that also means defenses have two perimeter threats to worry about, making it all the harder to defend a monster like Chase. If anything, the offense might even take another step forward after Joe Burrow's 2021 breakout, with the team adding three O-line starters in free agency (C/G Ted Karras, G Alex Cappa, RT La'el Collins). That doesn't mean Chase will avoid regression on some of his loftier averages (e.g. 11.4 YPT, 8.0 YAC), but it does put him in great position to remain among the league's most efficient wideouts per target, with potential to add volume as well.
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.
