Ja’Marr Chase just keeps getting better for Bengals offense
There isn’t a rookie more electric right now than Ja’Marr Chase, who continues to put up high-quality games each week for the Cincinnati Bengals. They hoped that by adding Chase, it’d give Joe Burrow an even bigger boost entering his second year, as it’d reunite him with his favorite college receiver.
So far, it’s worked out well for the Bengals.
We’re five games into Chase’s NFL career and he’s had a touchdown in all but one of them. Even in the game he didn’t score in, he still made a positive impact and continues to be one of the driving forces of this offense.
This week, Chase had his best performance yet, grabbing six receptions for 159 yards and a touchdown. This gives him 456 yards and five touchdowns through five games. Not too bad for a rookie.
Ja’Marr Chase looks better each and every week.
The tweet above shows just what kind of career Chase is on pace to achieve. I know we’re only five games in and a lot can still happen to derail the young receiver’s career but right now, it’s hard to argue with his results and what it can mean moving forward.
This is exactly what Cincinnati was hoping would happen when they passed on taking an offensive lineman in order to draft Chase. He’s been everything and more that this team wanted for their offense and he’s been Burrow’s go-to guy, as we all hoped he’d be.
While Rookie of the Year odds aren’t out yet, it wouldn’t surprise me in the least bit to see Chase jump into the top spot for Offensive Rookie of the Year because of what he’s been able to accomplish. He’s been trailing Mac Jones in best odds for the title to this point but Chase has done enough to show that he should be the clear frontrunner.
The scary part for defenses tasked with having to stop Chase is that he’s only getting better as the season continues. Good luck with that.
