Team Talk: Cincinnati Bengals

By Adam Filadelfo (@Frostt24)

Let's head over to the hard hitting AFC North and take a look at the Bengals. The Bengals had a few fantasy players that helped their owners in 2013 and fantasy owners are looking for a repeat performance from these players in 2014.

Andy Dalton- There were a few weeks early in the season where Dalton looked like a world beater and maybe one of the best fantasy quarterbacks around. Then he regressed to the Andy Dalton fantasy owners knew. Despite his struggles, Dalton still finished with 314 fantasy points which averages out to just under 20 fantasy points per game. Dalton should still be considered a backup fantasy signal caller heading into fantasy drafts.

Giovani Bernard- Bernard had a stellar fantasy season in just his rookie year. Bernard finished his first season in the NFL with 695 rushing yards and added 54 catches for 514 yards through the air while totaling 8 touchdowns. Bernard clearly has the job over Green-Ellis heading into 2014 and fantasy owners should expect a bigger role for the second year tailback this season.

BenJarvis Green-Ellis- The Law Firm finished 2013 with 120 fantasy points giving his fantasy owners just 7.5 fantasy points per game. With Giovani Bernard having a breakout season in 2013, Green-Ellis is expected to get less touches in 2014.

Tyler Eifert- Eifert was expected by fantasy owners to make more of an impact in his rookie season. That clearly did not happen as Eifert scored a total of 56 fantasy points. Perhaps a bigger season is in store in Eifert's second season helping add to the depth of the fantasy tight end position.

A.J. Green- Green delivered yet again for his fantasy owners proving fantasy owners can confidently draft him as a top receiver on draft day. Green finished his 2013 season with 98 catches for 1,426 yards and 11 touchdowns. There is no reason Green shouldn't be a top fantasy player once again in 2014.


Marvin Jones- Now entering that "magical" third season for a wide receiver, Jones has progressed very nicely in his first two years and could be primed for a breakout.  His ten touchdowns in 2013 will be hard to repeat, but with Green drawing coverage on the other side of the field Jones will have ample opportunities.  He's a great target in the middle rounds of your draft as a high upside WR3.
