QUARTERBACKS

Joe Burrow566.7388.24250.329.7513.8839.9135.72.39289.16
Brandon Allen36.222.1224.41.520.834.35.40.0214.06

Joe Burrow: Burrow started strong (eight consecutive multi-TD games) and closed even stronger (971 yards and eight TDs in final two regular-season games combined) in his NFL Comeback of the Year-winning 2021 season. Burrow quickly reestablished the chemistry he had built with Ja'Marr Chase, when the duo played together for the LSU Tigers. Chase along with Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd and Joe Mixon give Burrow one of the league's most talented group of weapons.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Joe Mixon272.81132.18.1844.7326.72.5232.31
Samaje Perine69300.22.0727.3201.41.585.23
Chris Evans25.9111.40.5216132141.46
Trayveon Williams8.6370.192.720.10.18.8

Joe Mixon: Mixon has eclipsed the 1,100-yard rushing mark in three of four seasons with his six-game 2020 campaign being the exception. While he has averaged 4.1 yards per carry (or less) in each of the past three seasons, the Bengals have upgraded their offensive line this offseason, which should help both Joe Burrow and Mixon. He set a career high in touchdowns (16) in 2021 and the Bengals should once again rank among the league's top-scoring offenses.

WIDE RECEIVERS

Ja'Marr Chase92.71219.48.48.647.30.17224.44
Tee Higgins82.11040.47.3000188.89
Tyler Boyd73809.952.216.50.04149.38
Mike Thomas4.753.70.30009.52
Trent Taylor5.151.50.30009.5
Stanley Morgan3.740.30.30007.68

Ja'Marr Chase: Chase went off for 5/101/1 in Week 1, and he never looked back. In fact, 2021's NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year had a pair of 200-yard games in 2021. Going into his age-22 season, Chase has a legitimate chance to finish as this year's overall WR1.

Tee Higgins: Higgins had offseason labrum surgery, but he's expected to be ready for the start of training camp. He set career highs in receptions (74) and yards (1,091) despite missing three games in his age-22 season. No team has a more talented wide receiver duo than the Bengals, and Higgins is a top-10 fantasy option in his own right.

Tyler Boyd: Boyd posted a 67/828/5 line on 94 targets to finish as a top-33 fantasy receiver in 2021, but he also set four-year lows in targets, receptions and yards. Boyd enters 2022 as a solid (but relatively low-upside) WR4.

TIGHT ENDS

Drew Sample12.9118.60.900023.71
Mitchell Wilcox4.140.30.20007.28

Hayden Hurst: With C.J. Uzomah in New York, Hurst landed in a favorable spot for his fantasy outlook. While he's clearly the fifth option behind the team's top three receivers and Joe Mixon, a 50/500/5 season (similar to Uzomah's 49/493/5 line last season) is within striking distance for the former first-round tight end.
