Fantasy Football Player Notes

2019 Draft Rankings
Joe Mixon photo 16. Joe Mixon RB - (vs . CLE)
You have to love watching Marvin Lewis walk out the door if you're Mixon, as he was severely underused as a receiver in Lewis' offense. In comes Zac Taylor, who said he's going to start the Bengals' playbook with the Rams offense, which is where he came from as a quarterbacks coach for Sean McVay. Them drafting two running backs is somewhat concerning, but that could be to protect them in case of a Mixon injury, which has happened a few times in his short career

Tyler Boyd photo 54. Tyler Boyd WR - (vs . CLE)
It's like everyone forgot how good A.J. Green is/was, and now he's dropping down draft boards while Boyd is skyrocketing up them. It's not to say Boyd will return to the waiver wire fodder he was his first two seasons in the league where he scored 15 PPR points just twice in 26 games, but he's not going to return to the player who saw seven or more targets in 9-of-14 games with Green back in the lineup. Do we really believe Andy Dalton can support two consistent top-24 receivers? That's what you're banking on with Boyd, because we know Green will be there if healthy. The only time Dalton has produced two top-30 receivers was in 2014, when Green missed three games, allowing Mohamed Sanu to finish as the WR29. It's not to say it's not possible Boyd takes a leap in the new offense, but he's being drafted at/near his ceiling without a Green injury

A.J. Green photo 73. A.J. Green WR - (vs . CLE)
Most don't realize that A.J. Green is still an elite wide receiver. The reason he's not going anywhere near the elite receivers this year is due to his injury-plagued history. This decade, there are only four wide receivers who have posted WR2 or better numbers in a higher percentage of games than Green. Those players are Odell Beckham Jr., Julio Jones, Antonio Brown, and Michael Thomas. The difference? You can't get those guys in the third-round. If he stays healthy, he can help you win a fantasy championship. The issue is that he's already suffered an injury and is now expected to miss 1-3 weeks to start the season. It's torn ligaments in his ankle, which can definitely affect performance when he's on the field. He's no longer a safe pick.

Giovani Bernard photo 162. Giovani Bernard RB - (vs . CLE)
He's on the final year of his deal with the Bengals, so it makes sense they'd draft a running back. But two of them? Trayveon Williams is likely his replacement next year, while Rodney Anderson presents workhorse ability when healthy. This is looking like an ugly mix behind Joe Mixon in 2019, meaning you should just let someone else take Bernard in your drafts

Andy Dalton photo 180. Andy Dalton QB - (vs . CLE)
Did you know that 2018 was the first year Dalton didn't finish as a top-18 fantasy quarterback? It's because he's been durable and has had little-to-no chance of being benched. The early reports out of camp say that Ryan Finley has looked pretty bad, meaning Dalton will once again be entrenched as the starter. If you're in a 2QB league, he'll suffice. If you're in a standard 1QB league, he's streaming material in good matchups

Tyler Eifert photo 234. Tyler Eifert TE - (vs . CLE)
His breakout season in 2015 seems so far away at this point, it's hard to rely on the tight end who's played just 14 games over the last three years. When on the field, Eifert has been extremely solid, but there's been a new offense installed in Cincinnati. Now dealing with competition between A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, Joe Mixon, and John Ross, it's unlikely Eifert will ever get the targets needed to become a consistent fantasy option

John Ross photo 250. John Ross WR - (vs . CLE)
You know it happens every preseason. A speedy receiver will get free and go for a long touchdown. That's going to be Ross this year and while some will dismiss it, you shouldn't. It's a new offense, one that's designed after the Rams, which has been a very WR-friendly system. Don't be so quick to judge a wide receiver who was playing in a bad offense. Remember Robert Woods before he went to the Rams? Ross will rise up draft boards come late August
