2019 Fantasy Football Projections: Cincinnati Bengals

- Updated: Friday, July 5th


In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Cincinnati Bengals.

QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Andy Dalton526.9329.3374125.8214.2331.9105.30.64238.83
Going into the 2018 season, Dalton had been fantasy's QB18 (or better) every season. While he failed to extend that streak in his injury-shortened 2018 campaign, Dalton was fantasy's QB16 through Week 12 (his last game played). Of course, he's not someone that you'd want as your starter, but he should outperform his 2019 ADP and be a viable streamer in favorable matchups if his weapons can stay healthy.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Joe Mixon2681259.68.7147.33500.95218.92
While he missed two games last season, Mixon was an efficient workhorse when he was on the field. The second-year back averaged 20.0 touches per game and 4.9 yards per carry as he finished fourth in the NFL in rushing (1,168 yards). Unfortunately, the Bengals have already lost first-round pick Jonah Williams for the season, but the increased offensive creativity that the new coaching staff brings should only boost Mixon's outlook going into his age-23 season.
Giovani Bernard64.8265.71.9441.83261.2578.31
With 36 of his touches coming in the two games that Mixon missed, Bernard had just 55 in his other 10 games played. Outside of deep PPR leagues, Bernard won't have much fantasy relevance barring an injury to Mixon, but there are reports suggesting he could see in the neighborhood of 10-12 touches per week.

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
A.J. Green77.31151.88.12000163.9
Before missing (almost all of) the second half of the season, Green was off to a fantastic start with a 45/687/6 line through Week 8. On a per-game basis, he was fantasy's WR8 (WR11 in PPR) through Week 8. The only concern is durability as Green has now missed three-plus games in three of the past five years, but Green's mid-Round 3 ADP makes him one of my favorite WR1's if I start a draft RB/RB.
Tyler Boyd69.7899.14.88140.01119.65
Despite missing two games last season, Boyd posted his first-ever 1,000-yard season with a 76/1,028/7 line as he finished with a WR17 performance in both PPR and standard-scoring formats. Assuming good health for Green, Boyd may fall short of the 1,000-yard mark this season, but he's a viable WR3 with some upside.
John Ross24.2290.42.9313.50.0247.91
Long on speed, short on production, Ross has 210 receiving yards over just 16 games since being drafted with a top-10 pick in 2017. Getting a fresh start with a new coaching staff could allow him to shake off the past couple of seasons, but I'd prefer to take a wait-and-see approach with the third-year receiver.
Alex Erickson12.4126.50.3700014.87
Cody Core7.185.20.2800010.2
Stanley Morgan1.8220.110002.86

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Tyler Eifert45.5532.43.7500075.74
Productive on the field (12.08 Y/R with a TD per 9.9 targets over his career), Eifert has played just 28 games over the past five seasons. Eifert (ankle) has been "doing pretty much everything" this offseason, so if (a big if) he's able to stay healthy, Eifert has plenty of upside from his current ADP.
C.J. Uzomah16.2158.81.1300022.66
Drew Sample7.677.50.4600010.51
