Wide Receiver Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 4

Ja'Marr Chase, Cincinnati Bengals

Rookie Ja'Marr Chase is playing at a WR1 level

With some wide receivers not performing well, fantasy managers may be getting a little frustrated. Injuries are starting to pile up as well (just look at the New York Giants and the Pittsburgh Steelers). Fantasy managers are going to have to be sure to pay close attention to the practice reports this week to make sure their players are going to be active. For the purpose of these rankings, A.J. Brown was not included. After suffering a hamstring injury early in Week 3, it does not appear as if he will play this week.

Rookie Ja'Marr Chase has climbed up the rankings. While his touchdown rate is not sustainable (four in three games), he is certainly showing promise as a rookie. He's connected well with Joe Burrow and especially with Tee Higgins potentially missing another game because of a shoulder injury, Chase has emerged as a go-to player. He is in WR1 territory as long as Higgins is sidelined.
