Chase enjoyed a historically impressive rookie season in 2021 and naturally caught the attention of the entire NFL. So far, several elite defenders have paid their respect to the young Bengals wideout, but now it’s his turn to say who he thinks are the best wideouts in the league.
Chase went on a podcast and listed his top-five wideouts in the following order: Davante Adams, Keenan Allen, Stefon Diggs, Cooper Kupp, and Justin Jefferson.
Not too many surprises there.
Bengals’ Ja’Marr Chase unveils his top-five wideouts in 2022
The most intriguing part of the list is probably that he named fellow LSU grad Justin Jefferson at fifth overall, even though Jefferson put up over 3,000 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns in the last two years. We sense a bit of rivalry going on, as Jefferson seemingly deserves a higher ranking than that.
As for the rest of the list, Adams, Allen, and Diggs are fantastic pass-catchers in their own right, and everybody saw what Cooper Kupp did in 2021.
In 2022, Chase will look to put together another productive campaign which will hopefully also see Joe Burrow play out his second full season in the league. Burrow and Chase can continue to terrorize defenses this season as the Bengals look to repeat their unexpected success from last year.
