Refreshing take on Higgins and Reagor, I’ve mostly seen mumbling and grumbling on draft Twitter so far. In Reagor’s case, it’s not like Philly is brimming with offensive threats in the passing game, there’ll be enough looks to go around if Hurts takes a step forward in year two. Higgins will have a harder time garnering his rookie year share, but Boyd won’t be around forever and then it’ll be a two man show like Housh and Ocho in the old days.

The liking of Higgins over Boyd seems pretty arbitrary, especially since Boyd is a slot receiver, whereas Chase has a X role similar to Higgins. If anything, Chase will directly deplete from Higgins share of the pie. We shall see.

I’m talking about general passing game share in Cincy, positional specifics aside, two mouths to feed are better than three and that ought to happen when Cindy moves on from Boyd. Barring another high-end slot taking over for him, Burrow’s top dogs will be Chase and Higgins. Boyd’s contract is up after next season, and by then we should expect Cincy to have figured out how to successfully incorporate two traditional X receivers in the same weekly game plan. I’m personally buying Higgins at a discount wherever I can find him, there will be down weeks this season for sure, but his future is still bright. Whether Burrow can stay healthy behind that subpar o-line is another matter, maybe tonight they’ll address that area.

This is still highly speculative regarding their plans for Higgins and Boyd moving forward/ IMO. Why wouldn’t they keep Boyd if Burrow continues to show he has a strong connection with him like he did last season when he targeted Boyd more often? They could easily just give Boyd a new contract.

Chase is more of a deep threat than anything

Think you forgot AJ Green being an alpha WR

Not a big deal but Surtain wasn’t the 1st defensive player off the board. FYI

Curious why you’re so confident that Higgins will be ok but Boyd won’t, when Burrow was already out targeting Boyd last season before he went down and plays in a different slot role that doesn’t compete directly with Chase/Higgins?

Which RB reps you think Trey Sermon steals for the 9ers ? I was just building the Wilson Jr hype…

Let’s be honest, a healthy Burrow looks good enough to make Boyd Higgins and Chase all startable in Dynasty. Unless you’re in a super shallow league that is. As a Higgins owner and truther my feelings about him are almost the exact same after the draft. I expected Cincy to draft Chase. If anything I believe it makes the offense that much more threatening meaning Higgins will have less coverage more often. If Chase is the real deal then top corners will also never be on Higgins.
