Ranking Cincinnati Bengals Wide Receivers: No. 1 – Ja’Marr Chase

Some might find it odd that I put a rookie who has never taken an NFL snap at No. 1, especially over such proven talented players such as Boyd and Higgins. Had Ja’Marr Chase not played with Joe Burrow in college, he might not have been the No. 1 receiver here but, that’s not the case, as he did play with Burrow and the two put up incredible numbers together in 2019.

I mentioned on the intro slide just how good these two were in Baton Rouge with Chase finding the end zone a whopping 20 times. Chase didn’t play in 2020, as he opted out due to COVID-19 but that shouldn’t stop him from putting up insane numbers now that he’s reunited with Burrow.

The Bengals didn’t even need to draft Chase with the talent they already had on the roster but they did so because they know how good he is. They knew that by reuniting their quarterback with his favorite target from LSU that the offense would benefit greatly from it.

It might be bold putting Chase at No. 1, but considering the damage he’s done with Burrow as his quarterback before, I feel pretty good about it.
