Fantasy Advice

Chase missed four games last season due to a hip injury, Weeks 8-12. He book-ended that with a 8-130-2 (Week 7) and a 7-97-0 (Week 13) line. The original timeline for the hip injury was 4-6 weeks. That's about as best case as you can hope for dealing with an injury to one of your star players. His PPG jumped 1.3 in half-ppr from his rookie season, and targets per game went from 7.5 in 2021 to 11.3 in 2022. There is very little change to warrant concerns with the Joe Burrow-Chase connection. In a 1QB PPR league, I'm fine to rank Jefferson-Chase first and second overall, ahead of the RB position.

  • Ja'Marr Chase Looking For A Strong Showing Against Cleveland

    Headshot for Ja'Marr Chase

    Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase will begin his quest to become the league's top wideout on Sunday versus the AFC North rival Browns. The 2021 No. 5 overall pick has been potent for fantasy managers since entering the NFL, amassing 168 catches for 2,501 yards and 22 touchdowns. Those numbers would have undoubtedly been significantly higher had he not missed five games last season with a hip injury. Nevertheless, Chase will presumably have Joe Burrow (calf) throwing him the ball in Week 1. However, no matter who is under center for the Bengals, the former LSU Tiger remains a must-start in all fantasy formats. He's also a viable DFS option in all contest types, especially since this game should feature plenty of scoring.

  • Ja'Marr Chase Doesn't Want Joe Burrow Back Until He's 100%

    Headshot for Joe Burrow

    Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase wants quarterback Joe Burrow (calf) to take his time before returning to the field, even if it means missing Week 1 of the regular season against the Cleveland Browns. "I sat out an extra game just to let my hip all the way heal up, and you don't want to cause no other problems later on in the season, and I told him as long as you're there after Week 5 and on, we're good brother," Chase said. The 26-year-old signal-caller is expected to miss several weeks. Burrow should have time to get ready for Week 1 on Sept. 10, so as of right now, fantasy managers shouldn't be too concerned about his status. However, he could start off the season slow after missing valuable training camp practices and the preseason.
