It was the first subpar performance out of Minshew last week, though if you were here last week, you'd have known it wasn't a great matchup for the Jaguars offense. The Bengals, however, are a completely different scenario. It was also just the first time this year Minshew has finished with less than 16.1 fantasy points, so we don't want to be too hard on him for one bad game. The Bengals are also the only team in the NFL who's allowed six different quarterbacks 16.3 or more fantasy points, so we find ourselves with a situation where the fantasy floor should be in the low-end high-end QB2 range, which is rare to find. It's not just one type of quarterback who's done it against the Bengals, either, as they've played Russell Wilson, Jimmy Garoppolo, Josh Allen, Mason Rudolph, Kyler Murray, and Lamar Jackson. The only quarterback who averaged sub-7.2 yards per attempt was Allen. They're allowing 8.34 yards per attempt on the season. To explain just how bad that is, Patrick Mahomes averaged 8.79 yards per attempt last year. It also helps that the Bengals opponents have averaged 65.7 plays per game, which is quite a bit higher than the 61.0 plays per game the Jaguars average. Minshew should be considered a low-end QB1 who possesses a high floor in this matchup.
