2016 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Cincinnati Bengals
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Bengals are one of the best teams in football. The defense is top notch and the offense is becoming very good. The loss of Hue Jackson as offensive coordinator hurts the team but the pieces remain in place for the Bengals to produce. Much of the success might hinge on Dalton, who has faltered in the big games. If he gets over that hump, the Bengals could be a Super Bowl team this season.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Quarterback Andy Dalton had his best season to date last year, but can build on that. He has more weapons to work with at receiver and a tight end becoming one of the best in the game. Dalton seems setup for his best season to date in an offense really playing at a high level. Remember, he missed the last three games of the season and still finished with 28 total touchdowns to just seven interceptions. Fantasy teams don't care how Andy Dalton plays during the playoffs. As long as he is getting it done in the regular season, that is all that matters to his owners. Look for a big season from Dalton in 2016.
FANTASY DUD
Receiver Brandon LaFell gets a fresh start with the Bengals this season, getting a chance to start opposite A.J. Green. This is a real positive for LaFell but don't expect a sudden breakout year He'll be erratic, especially with three more talented pass catchers competing with him for targets. LaFell is going to be really up and down for fantasy teams. Expect similar numbers to the past few seasons for him.
