With Week 5 upon us the fantasy owners not only must deal with injuries and depth chart moves, but now we are in full swing with the bye weeks as well. The only real “good” news about this week is there are only a few fantasy players on a bye (Adrian Peterson, Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, Chris Ivory, and perhaps Greg Olsen) that you will need fill-ins for.
The Bengals are now 4-0 this season and atop the standings in the AFC North. What is more important to us though is the number of Bengals players that are at, or near, the top of their positional fantasy football rankings weekly.
With Week 3 of the NFL season upon us, fantasy owners around the world have to be wondering when the injuries will stop wreaking havoc on their line-ups. Sorry to tell you, but injuries are something you will deal with each and every week of the season!
With Weeks 1 & 2 in the books, I’m sure there are more than a few owners scrambling to the waiver wire looking for answers when their team starts 1-1, or worse yet, 0-2.
Week 2 of the Fantasy Football season is going to create some interesting issues for owners who put a lot of stock in drafting guys like Dez Bryant, Andre Ellington, T.Y. Hilton, Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson, or the Ravens defense. The waiver wire is the easiest place to go for replacements as the trade route is often filled with unanswered offers or lowball counter offers.
There are few things better than being a Bengals fan and seeing Week 1 of the season on the horizon. The only exception perhaps being a fantasy football nut like myself and getting to finally set your Week 1 line-up after weeks of waiting following the fantasy draft!
