Cincinnati Bengals Fantasy Spin
Andy Dalton completed 22-of-37 passes for 243 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' 22-6, Week 13 win over the Jets. Dalton cleared the Ryan Finley line in the Bengals' first win of the season but otherwise mostly just stayed out of the way as the pathetic Jets self destructed. Dalton's longest pass went for 19 yards in the sleepiest of affairs. He did lose two touchdowns to absurd drops from his tight ends. Although, unlike Finley, Dalton is an actual NFL quarterback, his play continues to fade while his weapons are nothing to call home about. He will not be a recommended QB2 for next week's road trip to Cleveland.
Cleveland Browns Fantasy Spin
Baker Mayfield (hand) is practicing in full for Week 14. He's good to go for Sunday against the Bengals. Mayfield banged his hand against OLB Bud Dupree's helmet in the first half against the Steelers, missed a few snaps, but returned after going to the locker room. The Bengals have been better defensively of late, but this should be a spot Mayfield can take advantage of with his supporting cast.
