Ja'Marr Chase, WR (CIN)

Falls victim to game script

Chase caught all three of his targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 41-10 blowout win over the Steelers.

The Bengals went up big in the first half on the backs of Joe Mixon (165 yards and two touchdowns) and a dominant defensive performance (interception return for a touchdown). When Joe Burrow was asked to drop back and pass, he favored Tee Higgins (six receptions for 114 yards and a score) on the side of the field that star defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick wasn't operating in. Chase has seen his production dip over the last four contests as defenses appear to be focusing more on the breakout star (38 yards per game over that span). Cincinnati may need to utilize its top receiving option more heavily in an upcoming matchup against the Chargers' high-powered offense next Sunday.
