Draft note
by John Paulsen
The Bengals have 9.0 vacated targets per game, and Chase should absorb most of those after Cincinnati made him the fifth player off the board in the 2021 NFL Draft. Since 2000, receivers drafted inside the top 10 with at least 12 games played as rookies averaged a hefty 120.3 targets and 210 fantasy points (PPR) per season. Those are low-end fantasy WR2 numbers. I think that’s a fair valuation for the talented Chase. Matt Harmon of Reception Perception: "Finding a comparison for Chase has been difficult, especially with how high the expectations are for him coming into the league. However, I’m settling on early-career Larry Fitzgerald. ... That version of Fitz looked like a sure-fire Hall of Famer because he was just so good at everything. Chase checks those same boxes, can line up anywhere and still brings explosive potential."

CIN WR Ja'Marr Chase - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Pittsburgh
The rookie receiver is settling in for the Bengals as a legitimate target in the passing game. Ja'Marr Chase now has a touchdown in each of his first two games and even though his overall numbers fell back a little bit against a quality defense, he is already showing that first-round pick pedigree.

Chase will face the Steelers for the first time in his career. Pittsburgh ended 2020 ranked 20th in aFPA to wide receivers so there is a chance for Cincinnati to have some success in the passing game.

Chase is the top-ranked Bengals receiver and a high-end WR3 or flex for Week 3. Burrow will find his former college teammate enough to put up decent fantasy numbers.
