Bengals hire Zac Taylor as new head coach

The Cincinnati Bengals are hiring Rams QB coach Zac Taylor to be their next head coach.

Fantasy Impact

The hiring was delayed until the Rams' post-season run came to an end. The 35-year-old Taylor is a bit of a risky hiring considering he doesn't have much top level experience. He'll be tasked with getting the most out of Andy Dalton in 2019.

Cincinnati Bengals are moving on from HC Marvin Lewis after 16 years

The Cincinnati Bengals fired head coach Marvin Lewis on Monday, moving on from a coach who coached the Bengals for 16 seasons and had a 131-122-3 record but never won a playoff game.

Fantasy Impact

While Lewis had a lot of success with the Bengals, at least in terms of wins, many coaches would not have made it to 16 seasons without winning a single playoff game.

Cincinnati defense scores touchdown in Week 17

The Cincinnati Bengals D/ST finished the 2018 season on a high note, despite a 16-13 loss to the Steelers. Cincinnati managed one sack and had a pick-six in the game.

Fantasy Impact

Cincinnati's ability to hold an explosive Pittsburgh offense to 16 points certainly goes down as a moral victory in what was a tough season for the Bengals faithful. Shawn Williams provided the highlight with a 58-yard interception returned for a touchdown in the second quarter.

Cincinnati Bengals defense struggles against Browns

The Cincinnati Bengals D/ST struggled to contain the Browns in Week 16. Cincinnati allowed Baker Mayfield to throw three touchdowns on the way to a 26-18 win for Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact

The Bengals defense failed to record a sack or a turnover. It has been a long season for Cincinnati, who will take on the Steelers in Week 17. They will not be a fantasy option for that contest.

Cincinnati Bengals defense holds Raiders to 16 points

The Cincinnati Bengals defense turned in a solid effort in a 30-16 win over the Raiders in Week 15. They managed to sack Derek Carr five times in the game.

Fantasy Impact

Cincinnati's defense has not been a fantasy option all season but the shaky Oakland offense helped propel them to a solid outing. Cincinnati will not be a recommended fantasy option in Week 16 against the Browns.
