2015 Cincinnati Bengals Offseason Update

Last season for the Cincinnati Bengals was widely considered a downturn of fantasy production from the impact players of previous years. Heading into the 2014 season, FantasyFootballCalculator had Andy Dalton , AJ Green, and Giovani Bernard pretty high on their average draft position rankings. By the end of the NFL season, all three players had dropped out of the top 15 in fantasy point rankings at their positions. The emergence of RB Jeremy Hill took over RB Giovani Bernard, which should slide Gio into the passing down and change of pace back. If Hill happens to get injured sometime during the season, pick up Bernard for a quick replacement on your roster. WR Marvin Jones had ten touchdowns in 2013, but didn't touch the field in 2014 due to a foot injury requiring surgery (broken 5th metatarsal). Don't plan on Jones or Sanu having much fantasy value unless an injury occurs to AJ Green as the Cincinnati Bengals should lean on the running game again in 2015.
