Hi all, doing my prep for fantasy football and I wanted to ask about some of your key players.

1. Is Gresham finally going to break out or has Eifert killed his fantasy value? Are either worth drafting as a #1 TE?

2. What is the RB situation like? IS BJGE worth drafting as a #2 RB or is Bernard going to steal carries from him? Is Bernard worth drafting as a possible late round sleeper? What kind of stats do you see both of them putting up?

3. Any sleepers on the team to keep an eye on?

Thanks guys

1) Both will see the field quite a bit, including a lot at the same time. Eifert is still a rookie, and Gresham is in contract year. From what I have seen of them live, Gresham has looked better than ever. Eifert runs like a gazelle, but he's still learning. I think Gresh will surprise some people this year, and i'm a big believer in contract year.

2) I'd expect Gio to get about 250 or so touches, 50 of those being receptions for about 350-400 yards. I'd guess BJGE gets about 275 or so touches, with most all of those being rushes. It'll be more like a platoon than a starter/3rd down back scenario.

3) Mo Sanu at WR. He seems to have a nose for the end zone and is a pristine route runner. Marvin Jones may have more flashy plays, but I think Mo is far more consistent and gets plenty of looks with guys worried about the height of Eifert, Gresh, and AJ drawing the primary coverage attention.

Also, if you can get the Bengals defense late, they could come through big time this year. The front 7 will be one of the toughest run stuffing D's in the NFL, and more passes against tend to lead to more sacks and int's. And we have Geno. He's a frickin monster.

Guys to Target:
AJ Green (I'd go with guys like Bryant/Julio over Green just because he's in a tougher position to post huge numbers).
Gio Bernard (especially in PPR).
Marvin Jones (he's lit it up at camp and will likely be our second deep threat. Marvin has raved about him).
Bengals D
Eifert/Gresham Late (both looking like 50 rec, 800 yard, 7 TD guys)

Guys to Avoid:
Andy Dalton
Mo Sanu/Andrew Hawkins
BJGE

IMO, of course.

I'm going to look into Gio, I think he might take over as the starting RB sometime this season. I think he's severely underrated right now

I don't think Gio takes over until next year. It takes a lot to displace veteran starters on a Marvin Lewis team. Gio would have to be ridiculously good, and BJGE ridiculously average, to make that change.

I think it starts off as a 70/30 or 60/40 split on touches. I could see that progress to 50/50 by seasons end. But the Bengals have BJGE until contract until end of 2014, so they're going to use him.

Best case you can hope for with Gio is that he's Jamaal Charles V2. Racking up crazy yardage on split carries.

To revisit this now that it's been about 3 games.

I've noticed that the running game tends to stall when BJGE is in, and takes off when Gio is in. Is Gio getting closer and closer to taking over? Have the coaches dropped any hints?

I'm seriously considering drafting Gio as my #3 RB

I actually got Gio as a #4 RB that I will let sit on my bench and hopefully get value

Smart pick. He has looked very effective so far. He is my flex in 1 league and just missed him in another

I think a flex is expecting too much from him. At least initially, he won't be much more valuable than Bernard Scott was, IMO. Maybe after a few games if he impresses then he'll get more touches. But BJGE is still the starter, and in this offense that means a lot.

As a #4 though, that's pretty good value.

Yeah I don't love him as a flex early, but its a keeper league so I was happy to get him. It's also a PPR league. Maybe should have mentioned that

Both of those help.

Given the Bengals history of high draft pick RB's, it's definitely a boom or bust pick. I hope it works out for you. Smile

Got Eifert as my number 2 TE. Do you guys expect solid production out of him?

My prediction is 500-600 yards and 5-6 TD's, and Gresham to get 600-700 yards and 5-6 TD's

So, after a week in the books, what is the outlook for Gio? Looked good enough to takeover as RB1 in the future?

Was offered by the RBush owner Lacy for Gio and Joique.

I think he will see more carries but not more than 12 a game and maybe 15-17 total touches a game
