Week 9: vs Jacksonville Jaguars

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Andy Dalton found a way to score against the Ravens, with 6/14/2 rushing to help out his fantasy owners (21/28 for 266 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown). Mohamed Sanu continued to do the heavy lifting for the injury-decimated receiving corps, with nine targets for 5/125/0 receiving to his credit. Greg Little was a temporary lift (five targets for 3/42/0 receiving) while Cincinnati waits for A.J. Green to get back in the action. Green said after the game last week that his sore toe is back to 80% healthy, and IF he doesn't suffer another practice-session setback it is looking good for Green to play in Week 9. Stay tuned to's Players in the News later this week for the latest on Green's practice participation. If he can go, it should provide a lift for Dalton's performance as a passer. The Jaguars started the year being pathetic at pass defense, and currently rank 27th in the NFL averaging 267.4 net passing yards allowed per game, with 13 pass TDs allowed vs. a mere three interceptions (tied for 26th in the NFL). They do have 25 sacks this season (tied for second in the NFL), which has become a building block for the pass D. Ryan Tannehill was held to 16/29 for 178 net yards, one TD and one interception thrown last week (three sacks taken for -18 yards), while Brian Hoyer threw 16/41 for 197 net yards, zero TDs and one interception two games ago (also three sacks taken for -18 yards). During October, the Jaguars' pass D has taken several steps forward - they aren't getting totally dominated in this phase of the game anymore. Dalton has faltered without Green, but against the so-so Jaguars pass D he should be able to get on track in the passing phase of the game.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs CAR (5 / 4 / 40 / 0 rec)

Sanzenbacher is another guy that was thrust into a lot of playing time, and like Tate, he performed ok. Sanzenbacher had a big 15 yard 3rd down conversion early in the game on a slant pass. The rest of the game, he had a screen and a few sideline routes and he did a solid job of helping to move the defense. What Sanzenbacher doesn't give you is any big play ability, or any unique skillset that is going to threaten a defense. At this point, the Bengals are using him to help convert on 3rd downs. It's worth noting that Sanzenbacher rarely sees much coverage from the defense, so while AJ is out, he is likely to get 4-5 catches in that possession wr role.

2014 Week 7 vs IND (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Sanzenbacher ran around a lot, and never got open. He is not a legit NFL receiver,as he lacks the ability to do much of anything well. His opportunity to get first team snaps has not gone well, and AJ's return will put him back on the bench, if not the inactive list.
