Ja’Marr Chase Will Be The Top Wide Receiver Option In Fantasy Football

Having a reliable wide receiver is a key component to any fantasy football team. Ja’Marr Chase is one of the most reliable receivers in the game, and he will be a top fantasy option this season. Chase should be the go-to first pick for anyone that wants to go zero running back this year.

 

In 2021, Ja’Marr Chase had an insane rookie season and was able to finish with the second-most receiving yards as a rookie. Chase was only 18 receiving yards away from beating the rookie receiving record set by Bill Groman in 1960.  Not only was he great at catching the ball, but he was also able to rack up touchdowns, as he scored 13 of them on the year.

The only thing that held Chase back from having an even better year was the fact that the Cincinnati Bengals had one of the worst offensive lines in the league. This led to quarterback Joe Burrow being under constant pressure and he finished the 2021 season as the most sacked quarterback. 

Despite having a poor offensive line, Burrow still managed to put up great numbers and he should be set for an even better year in 2022. According to statmuse.com, Burrow had the best deep ball accuracy at 70.4%. Most of the time that deep connection was to Chase. The Bengals have made some improvements to their offensive line by signing Alex Cappa and La’el Collins in free agency. These moves should help keep Burrow upright and give him more time to throw to Chase.

The only concern is that Chase will be sharing the field with two other talented receivers in Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd. This may lead to some inconsistency in fantasy scoring from Chase on a weekly basis, but I believe that he still finishes as the number one receiver this year.

When it comes to fantasy football, you want to draft Ja’Marr Chase with confidence knowing that he will continue to be one of the best receivers in the league and the top fantasy option at wide receiver.
