Cincinnati Bengals

AFC North

Carlos Dunlap had a monster outing in 33-23 win over the Browns, tallying four solo tackles, one assisted tackle, 2.5 TFLs, 2.5 sacks, three QB hits, one pass defended, and one forced fumble.

Fantasy Impact: Dunlap showed troubling signs to begin his tenth year in the league, amassing one sack over his first seven games and missing two games to injury. Over his last seven games, though, he reminded us just how dominant he could be by recording eight sacks and 16 TFLs. Dunlap will be a key veteran presence for a team trying to claw its way out of the AFC North basement next year.

The Cincinnati defense played well in a 33-23 win over the Browns in Week 17. The Bengals forced three turnovers and notched six sacks in the win.

Fantasy Impact: Cincy's defense has struggled at times throughout the season but they played inspired football against their Ohio rivals. There is some talent on this unit but they are probably a year or two away from being a reliable fantasy option.

Cincinnati Bengals kicker Randy Bullock made both of his field goals and 3-of-4 extra points in a 33-23 win over the Browns in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Bullock finishes the season having hit 27-of-31 field goals and all 24-of-25 extra points. Bullock is under contract through the end of the 2020 season.

C.J. Uzomah finds end zone

By Matthew Terelle

Cincinnati Bengals tight end C.J. Uzomah caught 5-of-6 targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in a 33-23 win over the Browns in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Uzomah found the end zone for the second time all season. He finishes the year with 27 catches for 242 yards.

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert caught both of his targets for 34 yards in a 33-23 win over the Browns in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Eifert finishes with 43 catches for 434 yards and three touchdowns. The long-time Bengal is now a free agent and is unlikely to be back in Cincinnati.

Category: Game Recaps


Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Alex Erickson caught 1-of-4 targets for 16 yards and added a five-yard rush in a 33-23 win over the Browns in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Erickson set career highs in receiving and even looked like a reliable fantasy option during the middle of the season. The return of John Ross cut into that, however. Erickson is now a free agent.

John Ross goes for 42 yards

Sun, Dec 29th 8:35pm EST
By Matthew Terelle

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross caught 2-of-5 targets for 42 yards in a 33-23 win over the Browns in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Ross had a mini-breakout interrupted by a broken clavicle but he came back for the final few games. More importantly, he finally showed the talent that made him a first-round draft pick a few years back. Ross is an interesting buy in dynasty leagues with the Bengals likely to upgrade the quarterback position by drafting Joe Burrow.

Category: Game Recaps


Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd caught 5-of-7 targets for 59 yards in a 33-23 win over the Browns in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Boyd topped 1,000 receiving yards for the second-straight season and finishes the with five touchdowns. Boyd would greatly benefit from a true alpha receiver across from him but it remains to be seen whether the Bengals make that happen in the offseason.

Category: Game Recaps


Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard carried the ball three times for four yards in a 33-23 win over the Browns in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Bernard was unable to haul in his lone target in the passing game. The veteran running back was purely a breather back behind Joe Mixon in 2019. Expect more of the same in 2020.

Category: Game Recaps


Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon carried the ball 26 times for 162 yards and two touchdowns in a 33-23 win over the Browns in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Mixon also tacked on a 14-yard reception. Overall, he had a down year but he finished strong over the final few games. Expect the Bengals to make strengthening their offensive line a priority this offseason. Mixon should reclaim RB1 status in fantasy leagues in 2020.

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton completed 16-of-28 passes for 190 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in a 33-23 win over the Browns in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Dalton also chipped in a seven-yard rushing touchdown. The veteran quarterback probably played his last game as a Bengal as the team is expected to release him and draft Joe Burrow with the first-overall pick in the 2020 draft.

The Miami Dolphins have signed free agent running back Samaje Perine. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Myles Gaskin likely to miss Week 17, the Dolphins needed another warm body at running back. The sad part is that Perine may be the most talented healthy back on the roster. While he has been inefficient on the ground throughout his career, he has a solid college pedigree and can handle a workhorse amount of touches. Perine was wallowing on the Bengals practice squad, and will now likely be given a look in the offseason with an eye towards seeing if he has improved enough to warrant a roster spot in 2020.

The Bengals have placed wide receiver A.J. Green on injured reserve. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cincinnati already noted that Green would miss the final two games of the season, and this just makes this official. It was a lost season for Green and his owners. Another year older and will ongoing injury concerns, Green's prospects in redraft and dynasty leagues are dwindling.

Category: Injury Updates


Cincinnati Bengals tight end Cethan Carter caught both of his targets for 13 yards and a touchdown in a 34-13 loss to the Patriots in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact: Carter made an impact in his first action of the season. The veteran tight end will not be a recommended fantasy option in Week 16 against Miami.

Category: Game Recaps


Nick Vigil had a solid individual effort on Sunday against the Browns, recording two solo tackles, two assisted tackles, two passes defended, and one interception, though the Bengals still took their 12th loss of the year, 27-19.

Fantasy Impact: Vigil's interception came on the Browns' first offensive drive but did not result in any points for the Bengals, as Andy Dalton promptly threw an interception of his own. The fourth-year linebacker has been one of the few bright spots on this team and should be in consideration for a starting spot when they host the Patriots next Sunday.

Category: Game Recaps


Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate caught just 1-of-4 targets for 16 yards in a 27-19 loss to the Browns in Week 14.

Fantasy Impact: Tate struggled to get much going against the Browns and left early with what looked to be at least a moderate ankle sprain after getting rolled up. He is unlikely to play in Week 15 in a brutal matchup against the Patriots.

Category: Injury Updates, Game Recaps


Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Stanley Morgan Jr. was shut out on two targets in a 22-6 win over the Jets in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact: Morgan was unable to get anything going in the win. He is hardly worth rostering in deep dynasty leagues, let alone in seasonal formats. The Bengals take on the Browns in Week 14.

Ryan Finley throws one TD

Sun, Nov 24th 9:30pm EST
By Matthew Terelle

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Ryan Finley completed 12-of-26 passes for 192 yards and a touchdown in a 16-10 loss to the Steelers in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact: Finley also added eight rushing yards on two carries. Through three career starts, Finley has two touchdowns and two interceptions. He will be back out there as a low-end QB2 in Week 13 when the Bengals host the Jets.

Category: Game Recaps


Cincinnati Bengals tight end Drew Sample caught a three-yard pass in a 49-13 loss to the Ravens in Week 10.

Fantasy Impact: The rookie tight end injured his ankle during the loss and did not return. Sample is not on the radar in redraft leagues, even if he is able to return from his injury to take on the Raiders in Week 11.

Category: Game Recaps


Geno Atkins finished with four solo tackles, two assisted tackles, two TFLs, two sacks, and two QB hits in a 27-17 loss to the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact: Atkins played well, but he couldn't single-handedly overcome the shortcomings of his teammates. The Bengals will try again for their first win of the season versus the Rams.
