Trevor Siemian35.821.1239.91.430.976.513.70.1315.53

Joe Burrow: Does any team have as talented of a trio as the Bengals do with Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd? Burrow's rookie season (2020) ended prematurely after sustaining a torn ACL, but he has a 69.3% completion rate, 69 touchdowns (6.1 TD%) and 8.1 yards per attempt average over the past two years.


Joe Mixon215.9885.26.4844.9322.31.6191.68
Chase Brown72.5308.11.8918.6135.6171.01
Trayveon Williams41180.
Chris Evans19.483.40.448.162.20.423.65

Joe Mixon: Missing multiple games in all but two seasons (2019 and 2021), Mixon has been an inefficient (career 4.1 YPC) workhorse (16.4 carries per game). In addition, he set career highs as a receiver in targets (75), receptions (60) and yards (441) in 2022. There is some uncertainty, however, as Mixon deals with offseason legal issues and a $12.76 million cap hit (and no guaranteed money) in 2023.


Ja'Marr Chase99.21320.29.7629.10.27244.35
Tee Higgins86.91069.18000198.36
Tyler Boyd56.6613.
Charlie Jones12.7135.
Trenton Irwin9.7115.
Trent Taylor6.973.30.52.611.10.115.49

Ja'Marr Chase: Chase missed five games in 2022, but in some ways, his numbers were even better in his second season. Chase averaged a 7.3/87.2/0.75 line and fell short of 50 receiving yards in only one of 12 games last season. As a rookie, he averaged 4.8/85.6/0.77 per game, but he failed to reach 50 receiving yards in six games in his debut season. Assuming that Chase stays healthy, bigger and better things should be expected in his age-23 season.

Tee Higgins: Other than perhaps the Dolphins with Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, no team has a better WR duo than the Bengals have with Chase and Higgins. As he enters his age-24 season, the former Clemson Tiger already has three years of consistent production with a total of 215 catches for 3,028 yards and 19 touchdowns. Higgins has a minimum of three catches in 38 of the 41 games in which he played at least 50% of the offensive snaps.

Tyler Boyd: Boyd set five-year lows in targets (82), receptions (58) and yards (762) in 2022. Even so, he has extended his streak of top-36 seasons (half-PPR scoring) to five. He's a relatively low-upside flex option, other than weeks where either Chase or Higgins is sidelined.


Irv Smith Jr.40.2409.43.700083.24
Drew Sample8.380.50.700016.4
Devin Asiasi1.818.20.20003.92
Tanner Hudson1.616.40.20003.64

Irv Smith Jr.: Smith has appeared in only eight (23.5%) of 34 games over the past two seasons. With Hayden Hurst now in Carolina, Smith slots in atop Cincinnati's depth chart. Hurst had 52/414/2 receiving in 13 games last season, and C.J. Uzomah had 49/493/5 for Cincinnati in 2021. If he can stay healthy, Smith will have a chance to outperform his current ADP.
