In the first article of this series, we identified the three characteristics that most breakout offenses share. The 2017 Rams, 2018 Chiefs, and 2019 Ravens each massively outperformed expectations and led to league-winning fantasy performances. Now, we are applying that knowledge to our quest of predicting which offenses are most likely to make the leap this year. We have already looked at Denver’s breakout potential.
Our second team identified as a likely breakout candidate is Cincinnati. The Bengals have almost all of the elements we look for in a potential breakout offense:
- A young quarterback with an unknown ceiling.
- A major influx of skill-position talent, both through the draft and players returning from injury.
- A new offensive system that will take many elements from the LSU offense and a young offensive coaching staff that should find its footing in Year Two.
We will discuss each of these three elements in-depth below. Lastly, we will take a look at the different levels of fantasy impact we can expect from Cincinnati’s skill position players depending on how big of a step forward the offense takes.
