Tee Higgins is a standout wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals, and he had a very nice 2022 season with 1,029 yards and seven touchdowns.
On some teams, he would be their No. 1 wideout, but on the Bengals, he is the second option behind Pro Bowler Ja’Marr Chase.
In Higgins’ opinion, Chase is one of the top five wideouts in the NFL, along with Davante Adams, Tyreek Hill, Stefon Diggs and DeAndre Hopkins.

Despite missing five games in 2022 due to injury, Chase put up 1,046 yards and scored nine touchdowns to help the Bengals finish first in the AFC North with a 12-4 record.
Once again, they made it to the AFC Championship Game for a rematch of last year’s conference title game where they got past the Kansas City Chiefs.
But this time, Patrick Mahomes and company got revenge with a clutch three-point victory.
The Chiefs were without Hill, who they traded last offseason to the Miami Dolphins.
He had a career-high of 1,710 yards this season while helping to make the Dolphins a playoff team for the first time since 2016.
The Dolphins lost in the Wild Card round to Diggs’ Buffalo Bills, after Diggs had 1,429 yards and 11 touchdowns in the regular season while earning his third straight Pro Bowl nod.
Hopkins is thought to be past his prime by some, but he still had 717 yards and three touchdowns in nine games for the Arizona Cardinals in 2022.
Many expect the Cardinals to trade Hopkins once the offseason officially starts, especially since he has a large contract that he may not be able to fully justify anymore at age 30.
Meanwhile, Adams had his usual strong season after being traded to the Las Vegas Raiders, but unfortunately for him, the Raiders had a dismal year and missed the playoffs.NEXT: NFL Insider Reveals Latest Jessie Bates Update
