Zachary Hanshew

Zeke flopped against an elite Bucs' defense, but he'll get an easier test in Week 2 against the Chargers. It's not time to abandon ship yet, but expectations should be tempered until we see a bounce-back performance. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 In the words of Burrow, "I thought he couldn't catch anything?" Burrow sat down at the podium after Ja'Marr Chase in Sunday's postgame press conference and referenced everyone's overreaction to Chase's drops from the preseason. Those concerns certainly didn't show up on Sunday as Chase saw seven targets and reeled in five of them for 101 yards and a score. He was targeted deep downfield with a 16.3 ADOT and had a 153.3 QB Rating when targeted. He looked every bit of the generational talent he was billed and hyped up to be coming out of LSU and he's off to a much hotter start than everyone anticipated. Moving forward, Chase is back in the low-end WR2/high-end WR3 conversation and he should have another solid performance here against the Bears pass defense that got torched by Rams receivers multiple times for deep touchdowns.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
 Now THIS is the real Ja'Marr Chase. A sluggish, butterfingered performance in training camp and the preseason steadily drove down Chase's average draft position in late August and into September. But the rookie from LSU looked terrific in his NFL debut, catching 5 of 7 targets for 101 yards and a TD. The touchdown was a 50-yard beauty on which Chase simply blew by Vikings CB Bashaud Breeland. Chase gets the toughest assignment of any Bengals receiver this week, having to take most of his snaps against good young CB Jaylon Johnson. But by no means is this a skull-and-crossbones matchup for Chase, who should be considered a high-end WR3.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Elliott had only 11 rushing attempts and two receptions in the opener. As long as Mike McCarthy fails to commit to the running game, Elliott is no better than a low-upside RB2 against a Chargers D that was 11th against fantasy backs in the opener.Chase looked very good in the opener and given how poorly the Bears did against the Rams offense, Chase should be in the WR3 mix on the road in Week 2.
