Ja'Marr Chase (Shoulder) Exits Game vs Vikings, Does Not Return

Not only was Tee Higgins the one that Jake Browning was looking for this week in the end zone – Ja’Marr Chase didn’t get the chance to finish the game or contribute in overtime as he suffered a shoulder injury late. Chase was quickly ruled out spotted in street clothes on the sideline immediately following the injury. While there’s been no indication yet about the full extent of Ja’Marr’s injury, fantasy managers should anticipate Chase being out for at least Week 16 so as to avoid being caught with their pants down in assuming that Chase will be able to return in just one week. In the meantime, targets inside the Bengals offense continue to be extremely distributed with Browning at quarterback, with eight different players registering three or more targets in the game. Even if Chase were able to be back next week, he’d be unlikely to rank as a WR1 in Week 16 and potentially slot in as a low-WR2 against the Steelers.
