Week 16: at Cincinnati Bengals

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Denver has clinched the AFC West division, but home field advantage throughout the tournament and a bye week are still to be determined, which means there is plenty for Denver to play for during Week 16. Cincinnati, of course, is locked in a tight battle for the North crown, which is still to be decided over the final two weeks of the season. No day off for Peyton Manning this week, friends. Manning has been mediocre over the past two weeks, looking frankly awful vs. Buffalo two games back (14/20 for 173 yards passing, zero TDs and two interceptions thrown), and then so-so in San Diego last week (14/20 for 233 yards, one TD and zero interceptions thrown). His frustrated fantasy owners have watched Manning flame out just in time for the fantasy playoffs. Ouch! Last week, Demaryius Thomas got back into form (11 targets for 6/123/1 receiving at San Diego) after looking bad vs. Buffalo. Julius Thomas returned to action with two targets for 1/30/0 receiving - hopefully he'll get more work here in Week 16 now that he's getting back into 'game shape'. The Bengals' pass D feasted on a very unready Johnny Manziel last week, limiting the Browns' once-effective passing attack to 10/18 for 54 net yards passing, zero TDs and two interceptions thrown (three sacks taken for -26 yards). No money was made for fantasy owners who threw Manziel into their lineups last week! However, two weeks ago the Steelers ripped this unit apart (25/39 for 350 net yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions thrown). To date, Cincinnati is ranked 11th in the NFL averaging 233.6 net passing yards allowed per game, with 14 passing scores given out vs. 14 interceptions generated (11th in the NFL) and 18 sacks (31st in the NFL) put up. Manning is perhaps the exact opposite of Manziel, as a seasoned veteran quarterback, but he has not looked good of late, while Cincinnati has swung wildly in recent weeks - on balance this is a neutral matchup for the visiting Broncos.

Broncos | Virgil Green continues to play (Tue Dec 16, 05:21 PM) - Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green continued to lead the team's tight ends in snaps with 50 in Week 15 against the San Diego Chargers, even with TE Julius Thomas (ankle) back on the field. Thomas played just 29 snaps in his first game back from injury. OT Chris Clark also lined up as an extra tight end for seven snaps in the team's first two possessions. TE Dominique Jones played four snaps at tight end.

Our View: Green leads the team in snaps at the TE position because he is a great blocker, and the Broncos are a run-heavy team.
