Andy Dalton completed 15-of-25 passes for 154 yards and three touchdowns while notching four yards on three carries Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 11 win over the Broncos.

It wasn’t a big yardage day for Dalton, which was probably to be expected against a tough Broncos secondary. That being said, Dalton did well to lead three touchdown drives including two in the first half. He zipped a one-yard touchdown to Tyler Kroft off a play-action pass in the first quarter before threading the needle on a 29-yard score to Alex Erickson early in the second frame. He made his final end-zone visit in the fourth quarter, recognizing a mismatch with A.J. Green, who beat Bradley Roby for an 18-yard touchdown. Dalton has now gone his last four games without throwing an interception after being picked off eight times in his first six outings. He gets the Browns at home in Week 12.

Joe Mixon went for 49 yards on 20 carries while securing two catches for no yards on two targets Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 11 win over the Broncos.

He out-touched Giovani Bernard by an overwhelming 22-4 margin, though obviously the huge workload didn’t amount to much as Mixon stumbled to just 2.5 yards per carry. His longest run of the afternoon went for all of eight yards. Mixon’s volume is finally trending in the right direction but he’s not much use to fantasy owners when he’s constantly running intro brick walls. Next week he’ll face the Browns, who bottled him up for 29 yards on 17 carries in Week 4.

Giovani Bernard lost four yards on three carries and added one catch for eight yards on two targets Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 11 win over the Broncos.

Incredibly, Bernard has now rushed for negative yards in two of his last three games. That’s just not going to cut it. With Joe Mixon emerging as the Bengals’ bell-cow, Bernard won’t be a fantasy consideration next week against the Browns.
Nov 19 - 9:18 PM

A.J. Green nabbed four-of-nine targets for 50 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 11 win over the Broncos.

Green was silenced by Aqib Talib in the first half, catching his first pass with just over a minute left in the second quarter. The Bengals changed gears after halftime, managing to isolate Green against Bradley Roby. That proved to be a much better matchup for Green, who dusted Roby for an 18-yard touchdown to put Cincinnati up ten with under nine minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Green has now scored in six-of-eight games since Bill Lazor’s promotion to offensive coordinator. Even with a tough matchup looming against Jason McCourty, fantasy owners shouldn’t hesitate to fire up Green as a WR1 next week versus Cleveland.
Nov 19 - 9:16 PM

Brandon LaFell came down with three catches for 37 yards on five targets Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 11 win over the Broncos.

Most of his yardage came off a play-action pass from Andy Dalton early in the second quarter. Benefiting from a missed tackle by safety Justin Simmons, LaFell was able to turn it into a 29-yard gain. That was really the extent of LaFell’s production as he was held to just one catch for six yards after halftime. This was a big letdown from LaFell’s previous game when he tallied 95 yards and a touchdown on six catches in a loss to Tennessee. He’ll tangle with the Browns at home in Week 12.

Tyler Kroft absorbed two-of-three targets for 12 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 11 win over the Broncos.

Kroft ended a three-game touchdown drought by scoring on a play-action pass from Andy Dalton in the first quarter. He was mostly held in check after that and exited briefly with a right hand injury during the second half. Kroft returned later and promptly dropped his next target. The third-year tight end had a career day against the Browns in Week 4 (six catches, 68 yards, two touchdowns) and will look to repeat that performance when he faces them again in Week 12.
Nov 19 - 9:13 PM

Alex Erickson pulled in two catches for 42 yards and a touchdown on two targets Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 11 win over the Broncos.

Erickson beat Bradley Roby for his first career touchdown on a 29-yard strike from Andy Dalton during the second quarter. The 42 yards were his most since Week 2 when he went for a career-high 62 yards in a loss to Houston. Despite Sunday’s success, the second-year wideout remains well off the fantasy radar.
Nov 19 - 9:12 PM

Marshawn Lynch rushed 11 times for 67 yards and caught his only target for 10 yards in the Raiders' Week 11 loss to the Patriots.

Lynch was the most effective weapon for Oakland's offense early, sparking what could have been a game-changing drive with a 25-yard carry midway through the second quarter. A Seth Roberts fumble ended that march inside the 10, however, and a lopsided scoreline limited Lynch to just two carries in the second half. With a tough matchup against the Broncos up next, Lynch will remain no better than a touchdown-hope RB2.
