Season Outlook

Head Coach Marvin Lewis has failed to catapult the Bengals past the first-round of the playoffs since joining the team in 2003 and with many questioning his future with the Bengals, this could be his last chance to really leave a stamp on his tenure with Cincinnati. WR A.J. Green is the catalyst, being named to the pro bowl every season he has played. Green's one of the best at his position and a WR1 across the board, which brings us to secondary fantasy options from the Bengals that are worth drafting in upcoming fantasy drafts, beginning with TE Tyler Eifert. Eifert has battled injuries throughout his young career but when he's on the field, Eifert can produce an adequate amount of fantasy points. He registered 615 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns on 74 receptions in 2015, earning himself a spot in the pro bowl. Last season, Eifert played in just eight games posting 394 yards and five touchdowns. News out of Cincinnati is that he's on track to start Week 1. Brandon LaFell, sophomore Tyler Boyd and 2017 first-round draft pick John Ross will battle for the rest of QB Andy Dalton's targets, but neither have much appeal in standard fantasy leagues. RB Jeremy Hill returned to form last season, tearing up opposing defenses for 839 yards and nine touchdowns on 222 attempts and is a reliable source of touchdowns. The Bengals pass-heavy West Coast offense is filled with short to intermediate throws that match Dalton's skill set, gaining four-12 yards on each catch. Dalton has value as a QB1 in fantasy, but there are better options. Ross and LaFell are two deep threats the Bengals' will look to stretch the field with and defenses will have to respect their speed and are potential sleeper draft picks. However, for drafting purposes, if it's not Dalton, Green, Eifert or Hill, it's best to fade other fantasy options.

Player Outlooks & Draft Analysis

Quarterbacks

Andy Dalton Injury Update Bust

Expect Dalton's yardage to come up from last season, and the turnovers to go down. The Bengals were a team that played far below their talent level last season and seemed to play themselves out of games. He's not a fantasy starter, but he can be solid fill-in option in the right matchup.
