2024 RTSports Outlook

Chase was without his starting quarterback for a good chunk of the season but that didn't slow him too much, finishing with a career-best 100 receptions. Chase was 11th overall in fantasy receiver scoring. Chase had some huge games, topping 20 fantasy points five times. He did disappear a few weeks for his standards, having less than double-digit fantasy points seven times. Chase has three straight 1,000-yard seasons and is already one of the best receivers in football after just three seasons. Chase has great hands and is a good route runner for a young player that should continue to get better in that area. He lacks elite speed but that has not held him back. He plays faster than his timed speed. Chase is the complete package at receiver. He will drop some passes, though, mainly because of a lack of concentration. He has dropped 27 passes in three seasons.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Chase hasn't even reached his ceiling, so don't be surprised if he sees a jump in production this year. He can take his game to another level. Chase could finish first overall in fantasy receiver scoring in this explosive offense. He is a top-five fantasy receiver. Look for career best numbers. He can get around 110 receptions for 1,400 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Player Notes
Jun 13 12:10pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase wasn't fully participating in practice at mandatory minicamp for the second straight day on Wednesday and was in tennis shoes with no helmet on, but he did take part in the install portion on both days. Chase didn't take part in 7-on-7 drills on Tuesday. The 24-year-old is seeking a long-term extension from the club, and while he is in attendance so he won't get fined, it appears he's not doing much on the field. Barring a surprise development, the Bengals and Chase should be able to eventually work something out to keep him in Cincinnati for the long haul. The former fifth overall pick in 2021 out of LSU has been a Pro Bowler in each of his first three seasons in the NFL and has gone over 1,000 receiving yards in all three years as well with a combined 29 touchdowns in 45 regular-season starts. Chase is an easy top-five fantasy wideout.

According to Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase isn't expected to be offered a contract extension in the near future. With Justin Jefferson agreeing to a market-altering deal on Monday, Chase and his next contract are the next hot topic of discussion. However, with the Bengals notoriously known for waiting before securing their stars with new deals, Chase may not get an offer on an extension until the summer of 2025. Without question, the former LSU Tiger is worthy of a massive payday. He's appeared in 45 games for the Bengals since being selected with the No. 5 pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, accumulating 268 catches for 3,717 yards and 29 touchdowns. As such, Chase will be a first-round fantasy option heading into the 2024-25 campaign with or without a new contract. But he's battled injuries over the years, which fantasy managers may need to deal with throughout the season.

Dynasty | Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase is absent for OTAs. Dynasty Analysis: Chase is waiting for a lucrative long-term deal that will likely make him the highest paid receiver in the league (at least temporarily). The Bengals don't seem to be worried at the moment and dynasty managers shouldn't be, either. Chase is in the top three overall in terms of position players and there's no sense getting too concerned until Chase starts missing real practice time.

May 28 2:10pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase wasn't present for voluntary organized team activities on Tuesday. Chase is heading into the fourth year of his rookie deal after the team picked up his fifth-year option for the 2025 season back in April. The 24-year-old is slated to make $5 million in 2024 and remains one of the best all-around receivers in the game. His absence during voluntary offseason workouts shouldn't raise too many eyebrows, although it would be nice to see him working with quarterback Joe Burrow after Burrow suffered a season-ending wrist injury in 2023. Chase is unlikely to stage a long holdout into mandatory minicamp next month and training camp this summer, and he and the Bengals should eventually work out something long term that should make him one of, if not the highest, paid receiver in the NFL.

Dynasty | The Bengals are picking up the fifth year option on the contract of Ja'Marr Chase. Dynasty Analysis: Consider this a placeholder as Cincinnati now needs to prepare to make Chase the highest paid receiver in the league. Amon-Ra St. Brown has set the market with a four-year, $120 million extension ($77 million guaranteed), so the Bengals are going to need to assemble a few armored cars here soon. Chase and Justin Jefferson should both be set to sign historic deals and while the option being picked up buys the Bengals one more season, dynasty managers shouldn't worry about him hitting free agency any time soon. Chase remains a bona fide candidate for the top overall selection in dynasty leagues.

Apr 24 2:10pm ET

The Cincinnati Bengals exercised the fifth-year option for wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase on Wednesday, as expected. Chase is now officially locked up through the 2025 season. The 24-year-old former fifth overall pick in 2021 out of LSU has made the Pro Bowl in each of his three seasons in the NFL and set a career-high with 100 catches on 145 targets for 1,216 yards and seven touchdowns in 16 games in 2023, despite the fact that quarterback Joe Burrow (wrist) missed considerable time with a season-ending injury. Chase's seven touchdowns in 2023 were a career-low, but he should bounce back in that department in 2024 as long as Burrow can stay healthy all year. Chase's fantasy arrow continues to point up and he should be considered a top-tier WR1.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase finished the Week 18 win over the Browns by catching four of six targets for 19 yards. The Bengals had nothing to play for but pride on Sunday, and with Chase battling a shoulder injury over the last few weeks, the team didn't want to take any chances with their superstar wideout. Nonetheless, the 23-year-old capped off another strong year, finishing with 100 catches for 1,216 yards and seven touchdowns. But with Chase entering his fourth season in the league, contract rumblings will run rampant until he signs a new deal. Yet, regardless of how talks pan out moving forward, he'll remain a first-round fantasy option heading into the 2024-25 campaign. He'll need Joe Burrow (wrist) to stay healthy if he hopes to come close to capturing the magic he had on the offensive end as a rookie.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) logged a full practice on Friday and was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 18 matchup with the Browns. The wideout had a monster performance in the Week 13 win over Jacksonville, catching 11 of 12 targets for 149 yards and a touchdown. However, he's fizzed since then, amassing just 10 grabs for 134 yards and no touchdowns. Chase also has battled a shoulder injury, keeping him out of the lineup for the Week 16 AFC North clash with the Pittsburgh Steelers. But all things considered, the former LSU Tiger can always have a productive fantasy showing whenever he's on the field. Unfortunately, the Bengals were eliminated from postseason contention after losing to the Chiefs in Week 17, so there's a chance Chase won't play a full 60 minutes.

Jan 4 6:50pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) was upgraded to a full practice participant on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. Chase missed Week 16 with a separated shoulder but returned for the Week 17 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs and caught only three of his seven targets for 41 yards. Even though the Bengals have nothing to play for in Week 18 against the Cleveland Browns, Chase plans to play on Sunday, and he could see even more looks from quarterback Jake Browning with Tee Higgins (hamstring) looking unlikely to play. The 23-year-old will likely cost a pretty penny in DFS with the Browns resting key players as he looks to bounce back from a 10-134-0 line the last two weeks. In the Week 1 meeting against the Browns, Chase underwhelmed to the tune of five catches for 39 yards on nine targets.

Jan 3 6:30pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) had his repetitions limited in the team's first practice of the week on Wednesday. Chase separated his shoulder in Week 15 and sat out the Week 16 game before returning to last week's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. In his return, Chase was targeted seven times and only caught three passes for 41 yards in a game where the Bengals couldn't get much going offensively on the road. The 23-year-old should be fine to play in the Week 18 regular season finale against a Cleveland Browns defense that could be resting key starters as they head into the playoffs. Chase should be started in all fantasy lineups this weekend, and he should be able to bounce back from last week's performance, especially if Tee Higgins (hamstring) doesn't play.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) finished with three catches for 41 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. The former LSU Tiger was questionable entering this contest after missing the Week 16 meeting with the Steelers because of a shoulder injury. However, his return didn't benefit fantasy managers, considering he had one of his worst performances of the year. Nonetheless, with the Bengals eliminated from playoff contention, Chase may not play in Week 18 against the Browns. If that's the case, he'll end the 2023-24 campaign with 96 catches, a career-high, for 1,197 yards and seven touchdowns. Hopefully, with some adjustments, the 23-year-old can return to an elite level next season by posting numbers similar to what he had as a rookie.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He had been listed as questionable but was trending in the right direction ahead of kickoff. Indeed, his availability was confirmed after he underwent his normal pregame routine. Returning after a mere one-game absence, Chase will look to build on another strong season in which he has caught 93 passes for 1,156 yards and seven touchdowns. The former first-round pick ranks as a strong WR1 option in fantasy leagues this week.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) has been listed as questionable but is "likely" to play against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. If confirmed as active pregame, the star pass-catcher will have missed just one game due to the injury he suffered in Week 15 versus Minnesota. Chase has survived the Bengals' quarterback change from Joe Burrow (wrist) to Jake Browning, ultimately catching 93 passes for 1,156 yards and seven touchdowns over the course of 14 games. He remains a strong WR1 option in fantasy football.

Dec 29 2:50pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) was limited in practice on Friday for the second straight day and is now questionable to play in Week 17 against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Chase separated his right shoulder and sprained his AC joint in Week 15 and did not play in last week's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The 23-year-old is fighting to return this weekend and will be a must-start option for fantasy managers trying to win a championship this week. However, the fact that the Bengals play in the later slate of games on Sunday will put fantasy managers in a difficult position if they bank on him playing and then he turns out to be inactive. Hopefully we'll have a better idea of whether he'll actually play in Week 17 by Saturday evening/Sunday morning. Chase's return would be good news for quarterback Jake Browning and bad news for receivers Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.

Dec 28 3:30pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) was dressed in uniform for practice on Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's session due to a separated shoulder that kept him out of the Week 16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. It's looking like the Pro Bowl receiver has a good chance of returning in Week 17 to face the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer's Kelsey Conway. The 23-year-old likely only put in a limited practice on Thursday and still isn't a lock to play this weekend against the Chiefs. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said earlier on Thursday that he'd be surprised if Chase was able to play in Week 17. How much he does on Friday could be the deciding factor in whether he'll play on Sunday. If Chase misses another game, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd will be in line for expanded roles yet again.

Dec 28 12:50pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) did not practice with the team on Wednesday as he continues to deal with a separated right shoulder that he suffered in the Week 15 overtime win over the Minnesota Vikings. Chase's injury has a two- to four-week timetable, so NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said he'd be surprised if Chase is ready to play in Week 17 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The 23-year-old All-Pro pass-catcher is making some progress with his shoulder, but fantasy managers shouldn't hold out hope that they'll have him available for championship matchups this weekend. If Chase misses another game this Sunday, which seems more likely than not, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd will continue to operate as quarterback Jake Browning's top two targets in the passing game against an underrated Chiefs defense on the road.

From RotoBaller

Dec 27 3:30pm ET

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase (shoulder) was working off on a side field with trainers at practice on Wednesday. Chase is being considered day-to-day with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder. He suffered the injury in Week 15 and sat out of the Week 16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers last Saturday. It sounds as though Chase is making progress, but it doesn't guarantee that he'll play this Sunday versus the Kansas City Chiefs. When healthy, Chase is a must-start in starting fantasy lineups, even with quarterback Jake Browning running the offense. Tee Higgins has a much higher fantasy ceiling and floor when Chase isn't playing. Tyler Boyd and rookie Andrei Iosivas would have expanded roles again as well this weekend if Chase is forced to miss more time.
