By now I’m sure everyone in fantasy football land is in the groove of the Thursday night games, many of us have been there at 8:00 pm and realize we forgot to start a player or two. Of course with the Bengals playing none of us will forget this week. As you set your rosters there are some Bengals players that if you have you will want to get in the lineup.

QB Andy Dalton:
The Red Rifle is hot, and unless you have Manning, Brees, or Rogers, Dalton needs to be the starter. Dalton has thrown for over 325 yards in three straight games. Statistically the Thursday night games favor the offense on a short week, so start Dalton with confidence, he is a QB1.
WR AJ Green:
Green draws a tougher matchup this week against Brent Grimes. Former Bengals special teams coach and current Miami DC Kevin Coyle, might have some tricks for slowing down Green with his cover two defense. Still, start Green as a WR1 with confidence.
WR Marvin Jones:
Jones was added to 43% of the leagues on Yahoo Fantasy Sports this week. He won’t repeat his performance last week but he has put together two good fantasy games and one amazing game. This week I expect somewhere around a 5/85/1 line. This makes him a very solid WR3 and he should be started with confidence.
