The fantasy football season is a marathon, not a sprint. But like any race, there comes a point where you have to dig deep and push out every last bit of strength you have to edge out a win over your opponent.
Isn’t it always great when you get to watch your favorite player in the NFL just abuse the other team over and over again? That’s what Bengals fans got this weekend when they saw A.J. Green beat Ike Taylor time and time again on Sunday to finish with 11 receptions, 224 receiving yards, and a touchdown.
The Bengals moved to 8-3-1 on the season with a 14-13 win over the Buccaneers in Week 13. A.J. Green shined as he always does, wrangling in 4-of-8 targets for 57 yards and a touchdown.
Another week has passed and once again we have quarterbacks moving up and down the depth chart to wreak havoc on fantasy line-ups. It seems like every week there is a new injury we need to take notice of, or a benching that changes the fantasy value for multiple players. This week we have a little of both.
Far too many people draft a team and forget about it until about halfway through the season, refusing to make any moves (trades or waiver wire) because they have faith in their guy.
Andy Dalton, A.J. Green, Jeremy Hill, and a defense lead by Vincent Rey and Emmanuel Lamur stepped up for fantasy owners around the world and ended up finishing as starting caliber players in most formats.
