The Bengals made it all the way to Super Bowl LVI last season and their wide receivers are a big reason why.
All three wide-outs were in the top 30 of Pro Football Focus’ latest receiver rankings.
Chase was sixth, Higgins was 13th and Boyd was 28th.
“Chase was widely pegged as a generational prospect coming out of the 2021 NFL Draft, but expectations were tempered ahead of his rookie year because he’d opted out of the 2020 college football season. Well, the Tiger-turned-Bengal hit the ground sprinting as one of the best wide receivers in the NFL,” Anthony Treash wrote. “He is a complete wide receiver in every sense, but his impact as a deep threat is what really helped the Bengals to the Super Bowl. Chase led the league in deep receiving touchdowns as a rookie (8) and finished second in total deep yards (576).”
Higgins and Boyd also received praise.
