Carson Palmer is still an elite quarterback and leads a team with several top tier fantasy options. See how we rank them in this fantasy depth chart summary.
CINCINNATI BENGALS FANTASY DEPTH CHART
PTR = Position Tier Rank. This is the tier level where the player should be slotted in drafts.
1 = Elite Player.
2 = Solid Performer
3 = Backend starter/Bench fill-in
4 = Roster filler or long-term prospect
0 = No value
ITR = In The Rotation
PB = Position Battle
S = Starter
Carson Palmer – S 1
Ryan Fitzpatrick 4
Jeff Rowe 4
Summary: Palmer is still an elite performer. He has plenty of offensive weapons, including a solid running game and two top flight wide receivers. The Bengals defense is still sub par, so the offense will be expected to bail them out of trouble. Palmer should be one of the first five quarterbacks drafted and expect him to throw between 28-32 TDs.
Rudi Johnson – S 2
Kenny Watson - ITR 3
Kenny Irons 4
Dede Dorsey 4
Summary: The Bengals have a good one-two punch in their running game. Rudi Johnson is still the starter, and Kenny Watson proved last season that he can handle the load if Johnson goes down with another injury. The Bengals should score plenty of points which should lead to plenty of touchdown opportunities in the running game. Johnson has been adept at producing short yardage scores.
