Cincinnati Bengals

AFC North

Fantasy Impact: Vigil, a 2016 third-round pick out of Utah State, played four seasons with Cincinnati. He’s increased his production each year, and in 2019 he started all 16 games, recording 111 tackles. He’ll look to start at linebacker for the Chargers this upcoming season.

Andy Dalton “hasn’t been discussed among the Patriots' immediate plans,” per Jeff Howe of the Athletic. (Source: Jeff Howe on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Dalton has been reportedly linked to a few teams, but he has not been discussed as part of the Patriots' plan. The Bengals are looking to move Dalton as they will most likely draft quarterback Joe Burrows with the first pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Dalton threw for 3,494 yards with 16 touchdowns and 14 interceptions across 13 games for the Bengals last season. The 32-year-old could see a boost in value with a new team, but is merely an option in two-quarterback or super-flex leagues.

Fantasy Impact: The former 2014 first-round pick out of Michigan State has played all six seasons in the NFL with Cincinnati, but he’ll be moving on to Jacksonville to bolster up their secondary in 2020.

The Bengals are putting the franchise tag on star WR A.J. Green. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Green didn’t play at all in the 2019 campaign with an ankle injury and now the WR has been informed that the Bengals will be using the franchise tag on him in 2020. This had been the plan all along in Cincinnati, as the team hopes Green can rebound from the injury and continue to perform for them at a high level. It remains to be seen who will be throwing him the ball this season, as QB Andy Dalton’s days in Cincinnati could be numbered with the Bengals having the #1 overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft.

Rodney Anderson is hoping to return from the ACL injury that ended his rookie season before it began by the middle of August. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Anderson was an intriguing running back prospect ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft, but he was buried on the depth chart before sustaining his injury. Now, if he's able to return to health, he could compete for the backup role behind Joe Mixon. He will likely not enter the season with fantasy value beyond that of a handcuff, but he could find a fantasy-relevant role during the season if there's an injury to Mixon.

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.

Category: Game Recaps

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

Sun, Dec 29th 8:42pm EST
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.

Category: Game Recaps

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.

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.

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

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.
