Checking in on the Cincinnati Bengals

We don’t talk nearly enough about the Bengals here at OurTurf, so I figured I’d reach out to the experts.  In my search, I came across Ace Boogie on Twitter.   He’s a Bengals analyst and host of New Stripe City on YouTube.  The perfect person to talk to!  I asked him 5 questions to get the lowdown on Bengals Nation.

Me:  How did the Bengals do in the draft?

Ace:  I think the sense around the NFL is that the Bengals did great.

Exhibit A:  CBS Sports has an article that’s called NFL Insider Notes:  Browns win again with Kareem Hunt return date. To be fair, that’s only part of the headline, but it’s the part of the headline that I feel is most impactful.

While the NFL shook up the world with its #TakeAKnee, we have survived week 3 with quite a few upsets but managed to stay true to our picks.

Last week Kate suggested that sitting the Pittsburgh Steelers defense against the Chicago Bears offense would be ideal and boy, was she right! But if you took heed to our suggestions when we said to start Chris Thompson and sit  Jeremy Maclin.…you’re welcome.

So let’s get started with this week’s fantasy Starts!
