Bengals Defense

The Bengals defense just got a huge boost with the return of Vontaze Burfict. He is both an emotional leader and a physical leader. He will be once again and you can bet that this defense won’t miss a beat.

More from Stripe Hype

Their passing defense needs a lot of help though. They rank 30th in the league in fewest touchdowns allowed. They have allowed only 247 yards passing but have only picked off the ball three times, with a few dropped interceptions.

Their rush defense hasn’t been a big plus either. They have allowed 109 yards per game, which is 14th most in the NFL. The plus side is they have allowed 25 points a game without Burfict and with him back, they will see a different looking defense.

Bengals prediction: They will give up 17 points, but have at least one interception and 3 sacks.

Honorable Mention: Jeremy Hill, RB/Flex

Jeremy Hill was very close to making this list with the Miami Dolphins giving up the second most yards to running backs so far this season. The issue is that Hill has had one great game but hasn’t been consistent. If he can have another solid game, he could become a vital piece to fantasy teams as well as the Bengals.

Jeremy Hill should get 75 yards on the ground and one touchdown. If he can get a few receiving chances, look for 25 to 30 yards through the air.
