Summary

It did not take the Bengals long to realize what they had in last year's second round pick. Bates claimed the starting job early in the summer and once the games started it was easy to see why. Speed, cover skills, big play ability and tenacity are some of the terms that describe the young man who was an immediate difference maker. With 73 tackles, 38 assists, 3 picks, 7 pass breakups and a score, Bates quickly became a fantasy factor as well. In fact the only concern is that he seemed to slow down late in the season which is common for rookies. With the Bengals still questionable at the linebacker positions, both Cincinnati safeties are in line for plenty of opportunity in 2019. (June 27)
