NFL Week 4 Bengals at Falcons: Fantasy football sits and starts The Bengals are trying to get back to their winning ways against the Falcons Womens Randy Bullock Jersey , and many of you are probably also looking to get that win for your fantasy team as well. There are plenty of great options from the Bengals game this week, so let’s get to it.Must startsA.J. Green (Bengals WR): Green didn’t have a stellar outing against Carolina, but considering he put up five catches and 58 yards in one half you could argue he was on his way to a great game. He even had a redzone target that he unfortunately couldn’t hold on to. Of Course, you’ll need to monitor his injury, but if he is out there he just has to be in your lineup.Favorable matchupsJulio Jones and Calvin Ridley (Falcons WRs): Ridley blew up last week against the Saints with three touchdown catches. Jones still doesn’t even have a touchdown catch this season, but that could easily change this week against the Bengals. The fact Cincinnati doesn’t have William Jackson shadow the opposing teams’ best receiver allows the Falcons to basically put whoever they want on Dre Kirkpatrick. That has been pretty productive for receivers he has faced. Not to mention Jackson himself has allowed two touchdowns already this season in the redzone. You should feel great with either of these guys in your lineup, but the fact they are competing for targets knocks them down from being must starts.Tyler Boyd (Bengals WR): Boyd has been on a tear. He has 12 catches, 223 yards and two touchdowns over the past two weeks. He has clearly become one of Dalton’s favorite targets, and if you are in a PPR league he could quickly become a must play each week.Tevin Coleman (Falcons RBs): Coleman can be a pretty nifty receiver out of the backfield even though he only has seven catches on the season. Not to mention the Bengals defense just gave up 230 yards rushing to the Panthers. I don’t expect Coleman to have the same success, but he should get over 100 yards from scrimmage fairly easily.Giovani Bernard (Bengals RB): With no Joe Mixon again this week, Bernard is set to lead the backfield. He started off well against the Panthers last week, but it seemed like the offense didn’t use him as much later for whatever reason. I’d hope they won’t make that mistake again as the Falcons have seriously struggled with running backs out of the backfield. Christian McCaffrey had 14 catches against them two weeks ago and Alvin Kamara had 15 last week. That could end up being a huge week for you in PPR leagues.Andy Dalton (Bengals QB): The Falcons defense has given up at least 300 yards passing and three touchdowns over the past two weeks. They are now down their two starting safeties Jordan Evans Jersey , so this seems like a no-brainer.Matt Ryan (Falcons QB): Matt Ryan has seven touchdowns and only one interception over the past two weeks. He has Atlanta’s offense looking unstoppable at times. He should be in your lineup until he cools off.Austin Hooper (Falcons TE): You start average to good tight ends that play the Bengals, and Hooper falls in that category. He is a big target, and last week he caught a two-point conversion. He is tied with Ridley for second on the team with 11 receptions, so he is used pretty frequently.Good but not greatTyler Eifert (Bengals TE): Eifert had his best game of the season last week with six catches for 74 yards. Still, it was C.J. Uzomah who caught the touchdown. I’d say it is safe to start Eifert given the state of the tight end position in fantasy, but the fact he hasn’t really been utilized in the redzone limits him. Just sit themJohn Ross (Bengals WR): This doesn’t mean Ross can’t have a big game. Again there are some new faces in the back of the Falcons’ defense, so there is a reason to believe Ross could have a decent game. It is a matter of rick vs reward and the fact their are just safer options. Ross could just as easily end up with a big fat zero as he could end up with over 20 points this week. He has all the talent in the world, but with Green likely to play his volume takes a huge hit.The defenses: Don’t start either defense. This could end up being one of the higher scoring affairs of the weekend. It is best to just look elsewhere. CINCINNATI (AP) — Coach Marvin Lewis routinely shows his Bengals players video of egregious conduct from around the league as a way of trying to keep them in line. Exhibit A would be their game last December against the Steelers.The Bengals were penalized 13 times for a club-record 173 yards during another meltdown against Pittsburgh at Paul Brown Stadium. The Steelers overcame a 17-point deficit with the help of Cincinnati’s damaging penalties, finishing off a 23-20 victory that was their sixth in the row in the series .Penalties have figured prominently in the streak, including penalties on Vontaze Burfict and Adam “Pacman” Jones that helped Pittsburgh pull out an 18-16 playoff victory in the 2015 season.“We can’t have any dumb penalties, any outbursts, anything like that Vincent Rey Jersey ,” cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said. “We’ve got to stay focused. It’s Pittsburgh week. Everybody’s going to be hyped up, ramped up.”The AFC North rivalry has big implications for a mid-October game. The Bengals (4-1) are off to their best start since 2015, when they won the division, and could put some distance between themselves and the Steelers (2-2-1) . A loss would essentially even things up. The teams end the season with a game at Heinz Field.For the Bengals, it’s about keeping their cool when tensions escalate.“Every game I’ve been in against the Steelers, there’s been some type of aggressive hits or something dirty going on,” said receiver Tyler Boyd, who has played against his hometown team three times. “You can’t go out and play scared. You can’t go play frightened. You’ve just got to go out and hit. It’s hit or be hit.”The Monday night game last December included nine major penalties and led to two suspensions.William Jackson got an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty; Geno Atkins was flagged for roughing the passer; A.J. Green and Clayton Fejedelem got 15-yard facemask penalties; and George Iloka got an unnecessary roughness penalty for hitting Antonio Brown in the head. Iloka also got a one-game suspension that was reduced to a fine.Pittsburgh’s Le’Veon Bell and Brian Allen were flagged for unnecessary roughness. JuJu Smith-Schuster got a 15-yard penalty for a blindside hit on Burfict, and another penalty for standing over the linebacker and talking trash. Smith-Schuster also got a one-game suspension.Steelers linebacker Bud Dupree says there’s a difference between this rivalry game and all the others.“Cincinnati game: I hit you as hard as I can, you hit me as hard as you can, but we’re going to talk trash after the play,” Dupree said. “It’s a real-life fight out there.”Both Lewis and Steelers coach Mike Tomlin talked to their teams after the game last December Womens Tyler Boyd Jersey , trying to rein in the conduct. Some Bengals veterans are reinforcing the message that they can’t let their emotions lead to another loss.“The vets are going to be able to remind the young players of it — just talk about keeping your composure in games like this, things they probably did in college and big games, too,” defensive end Carlos Dunlap said.Lewis reminded his team of penalties this week. Cincinnati was able to overcome a 17-0 deficit and beat the Dolphins 27-17 on Sunday in part because of Miami’s penalties. The Bengals’ first touchdown drive was aided by Martrell Spaight’s unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and an unnecessary roughness penalty on T.J. McDonald.“That’s what the ramifications are — you’re hurting our opportunity to win,” Lewis said. “You’re really putting a dagger in our opportunity to win.”NO GIO AGAIN: Running back Giovani Bernard was held out of practice again Thursday as he recovers from a knee injury, an indication he won’t be ready for the Steelers game. Bernard also sat out the win over Miami, putting the onus on Joe Mixon. Tight end Tyler Kroft also missed a second straight day of practice with a foot injury. Jackson (knee), receiver John Ross (groin) and offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi (wrist) were limited.
