What the heck happens if Tyler Eifert gets hurt again?
Tyler Eifert missed all but eight snaps last season with a dislocated elbow. He also fought a shoulder injury through the 2014 offseason. A stinger kept him out of the playoff game, limited him down the stretch and kept him all but out against San Diego his rookie season. Behind him are five players without a single regular-season NFL snap to their name.

It is a bit disturbing in three big rushing games late in the year, Cleveland (244 yards), Denver (207) and Pittsburgh (116), Dalton could average only 169 yards passing.

Let’s see what he does with Jones, Eifert, and Jeremy Hill.

2015 Fantasy Football Team Preview: Cincinnati Bengals | FOX Sports
Good news, the Bengals have reached the playoffs four years in a row. However, I have a feeling you know the bad news. They are winless in those four games. Cincinnati spent their first two draft picks on players to help bolster the O-line. Andy Dalton has the weapons to compete. I know that he has a winning record as a starting quarterback, but that only buys you so much time. Actually, Marvin Lewis is still their Head Coach, right? Never mind.
