Week 12: at Cincinnati Bengals

All WR vs CIN

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Well, the benching of Nick Foles didn't work too well - he watched Case Keenum get beat up and then concussed by the Ravens last weekend (12/26 for 131 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown) - but the word at midweek is that the coaching staff wants Keenum to play on Sunday (if healthy enough) - so we are in limbo as to who will start for the Rams for Week 12. Stay tuned to the Players in the News to find out the latest on this situation, but neither guy has been worth much in fantasy terms so we hope you have other options to put in play at quarterback now that the bye weeks are past. The Bengals' pass D is ranked 15th in the NFL averaging 242.8 net passing yards allowed per game, with 15 TDs given up vs. 11 interceptions and 28 sacks (tied for eighth in the NFL in both categories) generated to date. The Rams have allowed just 14 sacks this year, but 65 total hits on their quarterbacks. Over the past four weeks (four games), this team has allowed the 11th-least amount of fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks (18.3 on average); is in the middle of the league fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends during that span (7.5); and is also in the middle of the league in fantasy points given out to opposing wide receivers (19.7, 13th-least). Last week, Carson Palmer over came two early interceptions to pitch four TDs against the Bengals (20/31 for 301 net yards passing). This is a tough matchup for the ragtag Rams' passing attack.
