Over the last two weeks it seems that the offense has found an identity and it’s a familiar one. Run the ball well, throw high percentage passes and don’t turn it over. This philosophy is time proven and is exactly what the Bengals need to be doing to win real games. But it’s boring for fantasy owners! We need high flying passing! In most leagues the playoffs have started or start this week, let’s look at how confident you should be with starting certain Bengal players this week.
QB Andy Dalton
Don’t fall into the trap, Dalton played very well last week and had 4 touchdowns. However, he just is not very good against the Steelers. There should be more reliable options to start this week.
WR AJ Green
If Dalton doesn’t have a big game of course that will affect Green. AJ has not topped 100 yards in 3 weeks and has only had 100 yards against the Steelers once in 5 games to go with 3TD’s. Obviously he has to stay in your lineup but don’t expect a huge game.
