Week 3: at Cincinnati Bengals

All WR vs CIN

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Trevor Siemian did throw an interception last week (22/33 for 266 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception with one sack taken for zero yards), but his defense took two turnovers to the house and boosted the Broncos to a convincing 34-20 win over the Colts despite the mistake. Siemian relied on starting wide receivers Demaryius Thomas (seven targets for 5/90/0 receiving) and Emmanuel Sanders (eight for 3/36/0) while also finding starting tight end Virgil Green three times for 3/46/0. Unfortunately, Green suffered a strained right calf during the contest, and was in a walking boot after the contest. Stay tuned to his practice participation (or lack thereof) later on this week if you are invested in the Broncos' passing attack. The Bengals' pass defense is currently ranked 11th in the NFL averaging 219.0 net passing yards allowed per game, but they have coughed up five passing scores so far vs. three interceptions and just two sacks generated. Over the first two weeks of the season, Cincinnati has averaged 21.2 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (15th in the NFL); and 20.1 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (11th-least in the NFL); with 9.0 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (11th-most in the NFL). If Green can go this looks like a good matchup for him, but overall we rank this neutral for the Broncos' so-so passing attack. Also, C.J. Anderson has a great matchup in the rushing phase of the game, which likely minimizes the need for Siemian to pass the ball during this contest.
