Ja’Marr Chase named Davante Adams, Keenan Allen, Stefon Diggs, Cooper Kupp, and Justin Jefferson as his top five current pass-catchers in the NFL.
Ja’Marr Chase decided to not name himself on the list. Instead, he opted to name former LSU teammate Justin Jefferson at the five spots. This comes on the heels of Jefferson saying that he was the better receiver of the two.
Both Chase and Jefferson have cemented themselves as two of the game’s best talents while both being so early into their careers.
In his first two seasons, Jefferson has already been named to two Pro Bowls. He has been an instant threat, already racking up 196 receptions, 2,016 receiving yards, and 17 total touchdowns in just 33 career games.
Ja’Marr Chase has risen to prominence in just one season in the NFL. During his rookie year in Cincinnati, Chase recorded 81 receptions, 1,455 receiving yards, and 13 total touchdowns. Chase took home offensive rookie of the year and was named to the Pro Bowl. He finished with the third most receiving touchdowns and the fourth most receiving yards.
Ja’Marr Chase now looks to be even better in year two. If he’s not on someone’s top-five list now, he may be by the end of the season.
