Week 3: vs Denver Broncos

All WR vs DEN

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Andy Dalton got kicked in the shin last weekend, and was hobbling badly in the locker room after the game - keep an eye on his practice participation as the week goes along as shin/ankle injuries can be quite painful and difficult to manage. Dalton and company threw flares all over the Steelers between the 20s in this phase of the game last week, winding up with 31/54 for 366 passing yards, with one TD and zero interceptions thrown - but scoring didn't come in bunches. Giovani Bernard led the team in targets (11) and receiving yards (9/100/1) while securing the available TD - meanwhile Brandon LaFell (eight for 3/39/0) and A.J. Green (eight for 2/38/0) mostly squandered their opportunities. A lone bright spot for the Bengals' receiving stable was the play of rookie Tyler Boyd (eight for 6/78/0). We'll see if Green can get back to his Week One form (13 for 12/180/1) against the Denver defense. Speaking of the Broncos, they are currently ranked second in the NFL in average net passing yards allowed per game (173.0, with two passing scores balanced by two interceptions, one of which was run back by Aqib Talib for a TD last week vs. Indianapolis), and they are tied for second in the NFL with eight sacks (one of which was a strip-sack for a TD last week vs. Indianapolis). Yes, they are awesome on defense again this year, folks. Over the first two weeks of the season, Denver has averaged 19.6 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (13th-least in the NFL); and 14.2 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (third-least); with 6.8 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (16th in the NFL currently). This is a tough matchup for any offense in the NFL.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 2 vs PIT (8 / 3 / 39 / 0 rec)

LaFell drew a pass interference call in the end zone. It looked like he was going to break free for the short touchdown catch on a slant route, but the defender wrapped him up. LaFell had a key 17-yard reception over the middle as the Bengals were trying to drive for the game-tying touchdown in the final two minutes.

2016 Week 1 vs NYJ (4 / 4 / 91 / 0 rec)

While LaFell wasn't heavily targeted, he made two of the biggest plays of the game for the Bengals. He caught a first-half crossing route for 21 yards on 3rd-and-7 to keep the chains moving. The Bengals scored their first touchdown of the game on the next play. The key play on the Bengals only other touchdown drive came courtesy of LaFell. Facing 3rd-and-19, Dalton snapped the ball quickly before the defense could get organized; LaFell beat single coverage on a go route down the sideline and came down with a 49-yard reception.
