  Bengals | Cincinnati struggles in season finale    Sun Jan 3, 04:29 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen went 6-for-21 for 48 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17. RB Trayveon Williams rushed for 74 yards on four carries, while RB Samaje Perine rushed for 51 yards on nine carries. WR Tyler Boyd caught one pass for one yard on three targets, while WRs A.J. Green and Tee Higgins were held off the stat sheet.

Footballguys view: The Bengals will hope for Joe Burrow to be ready for Week 1 next year. They got a big win over the Steelers to build on after losing Burrow in Week 11.

  Bengals | Brandon Allen has outstanding game    Sun Dec 27, 05:46 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen went 29-for-37 for 371 yards and two touchdowns against the Houston Texans in Week 16.

Footballguys view: Allen didn't all of the sudden become a quality NFL quarterback, this is just how poor the Texans defense is playing lately. The Titans offense should be massive next week against Houston, while Allen has made more of a case for himself to be a backup quarterback next year but will run into the Ravens next week.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen (knee) didn't practice Saturday, Dec. 19, and has been ruled out of the Week 15 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday, Dec. 21.

Footballguys view: Ryan Finley gets the start for the Bengals in Week 15. That means Fantasy GMs are downgrading all Bengals skill position players and upgrading the Steelers defense.

  Bengals | Brandon Allen to miss practice    Thu Dec 17, 01:03 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen (knee) will sit out practice Thursday, Dec. 17, as he deals with a bone bruise to his knee suffered Sunday. Head coach Zac Taylor said Allen's condition is improving, though, and believes he'll have a chance of playing Monday in the Week 15 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Allen or Ryan Finley don't really excite Fantasy GMs out there. If you have Bengals assets like Tyler Boyd or Tee Higgins then prepare to further reduce expectations.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen (leg) went 27-for-36 for 217 yards and one touchdown against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 14 but left the game because of a leg injury.

Footballguys view: Allen was able to move the offense consistently, but the ballcarriers let the Bengals down with three fumbles. The 49ers offense should have a bright outlook against the Cowboys defense next week, while Allen will be lucky if he dodges the Steelers.

  Bengals | Brandon Allen does very little in start    Sun Nov 29, 05:44 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen completed 17-of-29 passes for 136 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 12 against the New York Giants in a start for the injured QB Joe Burrow (knee).

Footballguys view: Allen had one good drive late to give the Bengals a chance to win, but was otherwise lackluster and no better than Ryan Finley would have been. The Bengals offense is going to be a fantasy wasteland with the Dolphins up next.

  Bengals | Brandon Allen to start    Wed Nov 25, 10:30 AM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen will start in Week 12 over QB Ryan Finley.

Footballguys view: Ryan Finely will work as the backup even though he was Joe Burrow's backup and came into the game last week when Burrow went down. Allen has starting experience from last year with the Broncos but he's not a great option. Downgrade all your Bengals skill position player accordingly.

  Bengals | Brandon Allen, Quinton Spain promoted    Mon Nov 23, 03:10 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen and OG Quinton Spain were signed off the practice squad Monday, Nov. 23.

Footballguys view: The Bengals need another arm with Joe Burrow (knee) done for the year. Ryan Finley is the starter going forward. Allen has starting experience, last year with the Broncos, but he should be the backup to Finley for the rest of the 2020 season.
