3.) Tee Higgins leads the Bengals in receiving yards

There is no doubt that the Bengals can get the ball moving through the air. Opposite of star wideout Ja’Marr Chase is Tee Higgins, who is a physical receiver that could be a nightmare matchup against either Christian Benford, Dane Jackson, or potentially new cornerback Rasul Douglas.

In Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens, Higgins posted his best statline in a game this season with 8 catches (12 targets) for 89 yards and two touchdowns. Since that game, he has only 11 catches for 129 yards (with 69 yards last week against the 49ers).

While the Bills’ secondary did improve with the trade acquisition of Douglas from the Green Bay Packers, it is still unknown if the defense will be able to hold down the pass-attack in which Higgins could have more of a big impact than anticipated. Ja’Marr Chase is someone you always gameplan for, leaving Higgins alone potentially one-on-one and could easily be a great contributor for the Bengals.
