Week 11: at Oakland Raiders
FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Bengals sought to shake up their punchless passing game in Week 10 with rookie Ryan Finley under center, but it didn't pay off. The overwhelmed youngster flopped in his debut, producing just 167 yards on his 30 throws en route to a 36-point loss. He looked thoroughly unprepared to start - his second-quarter pick-six to Marcus Peters was a truly terrible miscue - and made almost no impact with his arm. Finley didn't complete a single deep pass (15+ yards downfield), though to be fair, that wasn't entirely his fault. With both A.J. Green and John Ross sidelined, the Bengals boast little to threaten defenses over the top. As a result, this attack is limited to mostly check-downs and slot routes to Tyler Boyd. Whatever momentum youngsters Auden Tate and Alex Erickson were building with Andy Dalton simply wasn't there last Sunday - they combined for just 36 yards over their 8 targets. It also doesn't help that Finley works behind arguably the league's worst front line. Finley could conceivably take a step forward this week, and the Raiders do make for a forgiving matchup. But Week 10 offered no reason to project anything too positive, even in this situation. The Raiders continue to trot out one of the league's worst pass defenses. They're allowing the league's fifth-most net yards per attempt (7.6), to go along with the third-most touchdowns (24) through 9 games. Perhaps they'll build some momentum from last Thursday, in which they held Philip Rivers to just 207 and harassed him into 3 interceptions. But the odds look stacked against it with two full-timers, free safety Karl Joseph and slot specialist Lamarcus Joyner, sidelined by injury. Joyner has some hope of suiting up, though Joseph looks unlikely to return this season, putting the Raiders in a massive hole for Week 11. They now lack depth in this porous unit, which will push the shaky likes of Nevin Lawson and Curtis Riley into heavy usage They'll join beatable cornerbacks Daryl Worley and Trayvon Mullen, the main culprits in allowing massive days to DeAndre Hopkins (109 yards), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (133 and a touchdown), Allen Robinson (97 and 2), and the Lions' duo of Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones (a combined 258 and 2). The Ryan Finley-led Bengals don't offer much of a scare, but with little pass rush to speak of, there will be even more pressure than usual on the Raiders' weak secondary.

Green (ankle) on Friday, Nov. 15, was ruled out of the team's Week 11 game against the Oakland Raiders. Our View: It is still no sure thing that we see AJ Green this year. With Ryan Finley at quarterback, he might not be a good play if and when he does return. Moving on to another team in free agency next year would be good for his fantasy value.

We're tentative about his return this week too. When Green gets back out there...IF he gets back out there...should first be thought of as a flex play only. We have to see where he's at with his health and how he meshes with new QB Ryan Finley.
