Bengals' Auden Tate could take snaps from Ja'Marr Chase

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate could take snaps away from first-round rookie Ja'Marr Chase, writes Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic.

What It Means:

Chase has struggled throughout the preseason, leading Dehner to speculate that the Bengals could give Tate a larger snap share to "alleviate pressure on the first-round pick." Tate caught 40 passes on 80 targets for 575 yards (14.4 yards per catch) and a touchdown in 2019, but his role was diminished last season and he caught just 14 passes in nine games before landing on injured reserve.

Tate added 0.51 Reception Net Expected Points per target last season, finishing below league average for wide receivers (0.71) and fifth among Bengals' pass-catchers. Tate is currently the WR106 in numberFire's fantasy rankings and our models project him to be out-targeted 41.3-129.3 by Chase this season.
