Ja'Marr Chase News
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase finished with four catches for a team-high 97 yards during the decisive win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Chase had scored a touchdown in all but one game entering Week 6, so his failure to find the end zone in this one was certainly a little disappointing. Still, realistically, he won't score every week, so fantasy managers should continue to appreciate the fact that he is arguably a top-five wideout at the moment. As a result, keep him starting in all formats for the divisional matchup against the Baltimore Ravens.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase led his team in receiving during the overtime loss to Green Bay. The rookie caught six of his 10 targets on the afternoon, finishing with 159 yards and a touchdown. His trip to the end zone was his fifth of the year, and he now has at least one in four of his first five games as a professional. The 21-year-old is playing well beyond his years, and surprisingly, he was still the main wideout in Week 5 despite the return of Tee Higgins, who missed his last two games because of a shoulder issue. Nonetheless, Chase may likely cool down at some point. However, he should continue starting in every fantasy format conceivable at this rate, including in Week 6 against the miserable Detroit Lions.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase made NFL history during Sunday's rout over the Steelers, becoming the first player to record at least four touchdown catches within his first three games in the league. The former LSU Tiger took advantage of the absence of Tee Higgins (shoulder), and besides his two trips to the end zone, he would finish with four catches for 65 yards. After a rocky preseason, the rookie is officially the top wideout in Cincy and must remain a must-start in all fantasy formats moving ahead, at least until he starts showing signs of slowing down.

Ja'Marr Chase is the first unanimous top WR prospect since 2007's Calvin Johnson (according to Bob McGinn's poll of well-respected NFL scouts). If that doesn't get you excited for his potential, then think about his most recent college season...
