Cincinnati Bengals

AFC North


At a projected workload of 0.2 carries and 0.2 receptions per game, Trayveon Williams is safe to leave on the waiver wire. He's behind both Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine on the running back chart in Cincinnati.

Chris Evans is a little overvalued at his ADP of 237, with an ECR of 311. Consider drafting Boston Scott (ADP 251, ECR 207) or Damien Williams (ADP 284, ECR 236) instead. At a projected workload of 2.6 touches per game (1.7 carries and 0.9 receptions), Evans is safe to leave on the waiver wire. He has some competition on Cincinnati's depth chart, where he trails both Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine. Cincinnati has the 8th-worst schedule for RBs.

Samaje Perine is worth drafting at his ADP of 286 as the consensus #244 overall player. Projected to carry the ball 4.1 times and catch 1.1 passes per game, Perine has limited potential. He's second on Cincinnati's depth chart, behind Joe Mixon. The Bengals have the 8th-worst schedule for running backs.

Hayden Hurst is projected to catch just 42.0 receptions for 442 yards and 4.0 touchdowns. As the consensus #25, Hurst is not someone you want to start in fantasy. Hurst is worth drafting at his ADP of 194 as the consensus #189 overall player. Cincinnati has the 8th-worst tight end schedule.

As the consensus #77, Drew Sample is best left on the waiver wire. Sample is projected to catch only 11.6 receptions for 113 yards and 0.9 touchdowns. Sample will be playing behind Hayden Hurst at TE in Cincinnati.

Ja'marr Chase is worth drafting at his ADP of 9 as the consensus #12 overall player. Chase is the top target on the Bengals, with Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd behind him. Ranked #3 in our consensus wide receiver rankings, you will not be disappointed with him on your team. He's projected to catch 91.5 receptions for 1,416 yards and 10.5 TDs, which is 35.5% of the workload for WRs on the Bengals. Cincinnati has the 5th-worst schedule for WRs.

At QB7, Joe Burrow is a strong starger, but won't come particularly cheap with an ADP in the 5th round. Burrow is projected to earn 32.0 of his 324 fantasy points by rushing. While that's a nice bonus, it's not a major source of his fantasy value. Projected for a 2.4 touchdown-to-interception ratio, Burrow isn't not likely to melt down often.

The market has Joe Mixon correctly valued at an ADP of 10, compared to an overall ECR of 6. Projected to touch the ball 20.9 times per game (17.9 rushes and 2.9 receptions), Mixon is a locked-and-loaded stud. He's the top dog among running backs in Cincinnati, with Samaje Perine and Chris Evans behind him. The Bengals have the 8th-worst running back schedule.

The market has Tee Higgins correctly valued at an ADP of 33, compared to an overall ECR of 28. Higgins is the #2 wide receiver on the Bengals, trailing Ja'Marr Chase. As the consensus #11 WR, he's an every week starter. He's projected for 1,194 yards and 7.8 TDs on 85.3 receptions, which is 33.1% of the total for Bengals WRs. Cincinnati has the 5th-worst schedule for wide receivers.

Tyler Boyd is worth drafting at his ADP of 123 as the consensus #126 overall player. Boyd is the WR3 for the Bengals, behind Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins. At #52 in our WR rankings, he will ride the fantasy bench most weeks. He's projected for 739 yards and 4.2 TDs on 63.9 receptions, for 24.8% of the total for Bengals WRs. The Bengals have the 5th-worst wide receiver schedule.

With a projection of 0.0 carries and 0.0 catches per game, Pooka Williams Jr. is irrelevant in fantasy. He's behind both Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine on the running back chart in Cincinnati.

Category: Preseason Insights


As our #113 TE, you can do better than drafting Mitchell Wilcox. Wilcox is projected to catch just 0 receptions for 0 yards and 0 touchdowns. Wilcox is not Joe Burrow's first or even second choice at tight end, with C.J. Uzomah and Drew Sample on the roster.

Category: Preseason Insights


As the consensus #88, Thaddeus Moss is not someone you want to start in fantasy. Moss is projected to catch only 13.0 receptions for 121 yards and 1.0 touchdowns. Moss is not Joe Burrow's first or even second choice at tight end, with C.J. Uzomah and Drew Sample on the roster.
