Cincinnati Bengals most dangerous player No. 1- Ja’marr Chase, wide receiver
Not enough can be said about just how good rookie wide receiver Ja’marr Chase was last season with the Bengals. Some people have said he is already the best wide receiver in the league which is high praise for a player with just one season in the NFL. Now when he matched up against Browns’ corner Denzel Ward he wasn’t as productive.
During his rookie season, he finished with 81 catches for 1,455 yards and 13 touchdowns averaging 18 yards per catch. Chase is a threat to take every short pass to the end zone if he is given space. He has great athleticism after the catch and break-away speed that he knows how to utilize to the best of his ability.
It seemed as though Chase and quarterback Joe Burrow picked up where they left off as the two were college roommates at LSU. The relationship between the two was that of players that had been playing for a decade together. Burrow always knew where Chase was when he was in trouble and knew if he got the ball to him Chase could make the play.
If Chase continues playing like this he will be a problem for the Browns for a long time facing him twice a year.
