The Chiefs and Bengals wide receivers dominated fantasy scoring in Week 7, as Ja’Marr Chase, Tyler Boyd, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman were the Top 4 fantasy receivers of the week. And somehow Parris Campbell and Marquise Goodwin were 5th and 6th. Bye weeks did narrow the competition, but there’s little doubt who the best passing offenses in the NFL are right now.
