Bengals plan on using rotation at No. 2 WR spot


Bengals plan on using rotation at No. 2 WR spot

For the time being, the Cincinnati Bengals plan on using a trio of wide receivers to play across from superstar A.J. Green @ajgreen_18. That trio consists of Armon Binns @ArmonBinns, Brandon Tate and rookie Mohamed Sanu @Mo_12_Sanu. Offensive coordinator Jay Gruden referred to that group as "more or less interchangable." He continued to say, "Right now, the way they've performed, I have no reservation whatsoever of anybody coming in there. My play calling won't alter one bit if Sanu, Armon or Tate is out there."

Fantasy Analysis:

It sounds like the Bengals WR2 spot could be a fantasy dead zone if nobody truly emerges. If anything, this bit of news and the quote from Gruden sound like he's asking somebody to step up and take the job. The Bengals quietly have put together a very young and dynamic offense. With Green commanding so much attention from defenses, all the other receivers in Cincinnati could be facing single coverage each and every play.

AJ Green will command double coverage. For me, that puts Gresham in the que for more red zone looks, particularly with lackluster RBs. The receiver rotation only make Gresham more valuable if you can see beyond AJ Green.
