Cincinnati Bengals: Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em for Week 4 vs. Jaguars
What a glorious Sunday we all just experienced. Not only did the Cincinnati Bengals crush the Steelers convincingly in Pittsburgh, they also bullied them as well.
Now, kids, bullying is bad…in most cases. However, when it comes to the Bengal vs Steeler rivalry, bullying is good, especially when you are the one doing the bullying. While we all bask in the warm glow of victory, the Bengals are getting prepared for a Thursday night tilt with Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Let me be clear upfront — I DO NOT LIKE Thursday night games.
These players take a beating and three days just isn’t enough time to recover. However the NFL loves to be on primetime, and Thursday Night Football has proven to be hugely successful, at least from a ratings perspective.
The football however, is usually sloppy and disjointed due to the time constraints in regard to installing a game plan. Be that as it may, the fantasy industry and the NFL marches on, and I’m here to try to keep you in step.
After a rough Week 2, I bounced back nicely in Week 3 to deliver a solid call to start Joe Burrow, the Bengals defense, and Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth. While I whiffed on the sit call for Najee Harris, putting Big Ben down on the bench, figuratively of course, though I suspect the city of Pittsburgh might want to take that literally, was a nice call as well.
I’ll call the Tee Higgins sit a push since he didn’t play. Hey, I admit my misses, so I’m going to claim my hits! Let’s take a look at Thursday night’s game and see what we can see!
