Outlook

The Bengals are a team on the rise. They have a lot of young, talented players on both sides of the ball. They are a legit Super Bowl contender if Andy Dalton can continue to progress at quarterback. If he takes his game to a new level this season, the Bengals can be a special team. They are at least a playoff team but could be better if the breaks fall their way. This is a team that can make big plays on both sides of the ball.

FANTASY BREAKOUT

Mohamed Sanu, WR. Sanu will be given first shot to be the starting receiver opposite A.J. Green. He was just starting to play a bigger role in the Bengals' offense before injuring his foot. The Bengals remain high on Sanu and believe he has the talent to be a starter in this league. Sanu has size for the position, runs pretty good routes and has decent hands. He has the makeup to start and take a big step forward this season.

FANTASY DUD

BenJarvus Green-Ellis, RB. Green-Ellis remains the starter in Cincinnati but rookie Giovani Bernard will push him for playing time. Bernard is a much more explosive and complete back than Green-Ellis. He is the future at the position for the Bengals. Expect Green-Ellis to see his playing time decrease as the season progresses. Green-Ellis could see a big dip in touches his second season with the Bengals.

Apr 09, 02:13 PM Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson thinks QB Andy Dalton is close to becoming a great quarterback in the NFL. 'The guy has the makeup to do it. What I've got to do is just continue to push, prod, pull, motivate, support him and the rest of this offensive unit, and then we've got to pick up the pieces everywhere else to give him a chance to do his job. If we do that, this young man will be right where he needs to be,' Jackson said. Jackson has already vowed to focus more on a running attack to take some of the pressure off Dalton's arm.
