Burrow will consistently find a good match between Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd to take advantage of the downfield.

Carr and Darren Waller, Hunter Renfrow

Carr missed his close end several games and got him back just in time for week 18. Renfrow was super reliable when he helped with expansion problems elsewhere. They are solid covers for the Bengals inside. Waller and Renfrow must leave to win Las Vegas.
