Week 7: vs Cleveland Browns
All QB vs CLE
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. The Bengals did without Tyler Eifert (again) last weekend, and the lack of reliable receivers outside of A.J. Green limited what Andy Dalton could get done at New England. Dalton threw 21/31 for 254 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions, while taking two sacks for -17 yards (he did spike the effort for his fantasy owners with 2/17/1 rushing, which helped cushion the lack of scoring passes). Green led the team in targets with 10 for 6/88/0 receiving, while Tyler Boyd contributed five for 4/79/0. Giovani Bernard was third on the squad with five for 4/45/0, while Brandon LaFell scored against his former team with five targets for 2/13/1. We'll see if the excitement of facing an AFC North rival can fire up this attack.
The Browns usually help out opposing quarterbacks - so far this year they've given out 16 passing scores in six games, vs. six interceptions and just nine sacks generated. The Browns average 285.3 yards passing allowed per game (tied for 26th in the NFL), and coughed up 17/24 for 270 yards passing, three TDs and one interception thrown, with two sacks for -14 yards to Marcus Mariota last weekend. From Week Four to Week Six of the 2016 season (over the last three weeks), Cleveland has averaged 28.4 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (second-most in the NFL); and 18.8 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (seventh-least); with 22.6 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (most in the league).
This is a great matchup for Dalton and company.
