ESPN Ranks Three Cincinnati Bengals Players Amongst Top-50 Most Useful NFL Players


CINCINNATI — Joe Burrow will likely fall just short within the MVP race, but ESPN firmly placed him contained in the top five of their final NFL player value rankings list.

The Bengals quarterback (No. 4) also had his top-two weapons join him on the list in Ja’Marr Chase (No. 41) and Tee Higgins (No. 42).

“On the surface, Burrow’s stats significantly trail the highest three players on this list,” Seth Walder wrote. “But he also handled something the others didn’t: a terrible offensive line. Cincinnati ranked thirtieth in pass block win rate and was somewhat bailed out because Burrow improved at sack avoidance. Yet despite that weak O-line, Burrow (helped by receivers Tee Higgins and Ja’Marr Chase) led a Bengals offense that ranked fifth in EPA per dropback, behind only the Chiefs and Bills.”

Walder described the rating as “a purely descriptive exercise. It’s simply a measure of who generated more value in 2022.”

The highest five so as were Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Jalen Hurts, Burrow, and Justin Jefferson.

Chase and Higgins ranked tenth and eleventh amongst wide receivers.

Cincinnati and Buffalo meet within the divisional round this Sunday at 3 p.m. ET on CBS. The sport is out there via fuboTV—start your free trial here.
