The Cincinnati Bengals have their fair share of fantasy football goodness, including one of the game's best receivers and a quarterback who's lucky to have him. Some of the Bengals' old reliable guys will not be contributing as much, making room for younger talent. Who's going to see more of the rock and who's getting less? Only the fantasy gods know for sure, but here are five guys to watch.
The 233-pound second-round draft pick from LSU is ready to take over BenJarvus Green-Ellis' role as thunder to Giovani Bernard's lightning. He could get the goal-line carries as well. Hill is faster and younger than the Law Firm, who is one of the familiar Bengals that is fading away. Hill could fall into a very tasty vulture role. I wouldn't draft him in a standard-size league, but keep an eye on him.
Jermaine Gresham has yet to set Cincinnati on fire, leaving the door open for last year's 21st overall pick. Eifert's speed and vertical are exceptional in a 6-foot-6, 250-pound frame. He's still developing, but Dalton could find a rhythm with him. Eifert's not a top 10 TE coming out the gate, so I wouldn't draft him either, but be the first owner to snag him if the sun starts to shine.
While not always a big-game closer, Dalton does put up fantasy points. He was a top 5 QB last year and has the weapons to do it again. You may suffer a few multiple turnover games, but you'll see many multiple touchdown games as well. You could do worse. If you like a few RBs and WRs on your squad before you take a QB, he's your man. Load up on other talent and take Dalton in the eighth or ninth round.
This is Bernard's year to take over. As I said, Green-Ellis is disappearing and may be cut. Gio will go from complement to feature. His elusiveness and hands mean numerous big plays are very possible. Goal-line carries could go to someone else, making him prime vulture bait. I'd take him in the second or third round after securing a more proven back and maybe a receiver.
Green led all WRs with 178 targets last year. He is a premier deep threat, and he often makes Dalton look good. His height, hands and leaping ability make him easy to throw to. I only like Calvin Johnson better than Green. He's only missed one game in three years and gained over 1,000 yards every time. Take him in the second or third and be happy with it.
