The Bengals were universally considered a top-five fantasy defense prior to the season. Through two games, Cincinnati has amassed 11 fantasy points.
Two games is a small sample size, but in fantasy football it doesn’t take much more than two underperforming games to convince an owner they have a problem. In the real world the Bengals certainly have a solid defense, but this isn’t the real world. If Cincinnati isn’t going to ring up sacks and take interceptions to the house, what good is it?
