Dynasty Week In Review - NFL Week 8 (2021)

Jamarr Chase D1Bee55C

Yeah we need to talk about Ja'Marr Chase Does everyone remember the story about how he couldn't catch the ball in the pre-season? That's certainly a distant memory at this point. Ja'Marr Chase just became the first rookie in league history to have 700 yards in his first seven career games. He's been impossible to contain and his chemistry with Joe Burrow is off the charts. All signs point to Chase being a top dynasty asset moving forward, and if he's not already at the #1 dynasty WR spot, he has to be close. His ascension has also corresponded with a significant downward movement for both of the other Cincinnati wide receivers. Tyler Boyd has been most affected, as he's seen his target share and air yards drop precipitously. Given Chase's volume, Boyd has moved from a PPR consistent WR2/3 to more of a low upside flex play in bye weeks. Tee Higgins is also an interesting case, because, while his air yards are down, his targets remain high. Also, he's still only 22! Given Tyler Boyd's cheap cut price on his contract and Higgins age, I like Higgins as a buy-low candidate in an ascending offense. He may be the second fiddle to Chase, but that still will likely yield WR2 numbers.
