Cincinnati Bengals - 2015 Projections

Cincinnati Bengals
Overall Outlook
The Cincinnati Bengals are as consistent a franchise as any in the NFL right now. They have a coach that has been there since 2003, talented players at nearly every position, and have made the playoffs for the past three seasons. Unfortunately, the Bengals haven't been able to win in the playoffs AT ALL  (0-6 under Marvin Lewis) and fans of the team are starting to get antsy for change. As of right now, the Bengals are going to have a hard time making the playoffs in the tough AFC North.

Offseason Moves
Key additions: QB Josh Johnson, WR Denarius Moore, DE Michael Johnson, LB A.J. Hawk

Key losses: QB Jason Campbell, WR Greg Little, TE Jermaine Gresham, OT Marshall Newhouse, C Mike Pollak, DE Robert Geathers, CB Terence Newman, S Taylor Mays

Offensive Outlook
The Bengals have a bunch of talent in their offensive skill positions. Guys like A.J. Green, Gio Bernard, Jeremy Hill, Tyler Eifert are all solid options in this offense. Additionally, the club spent early draft picks at OT this year, adding more talent to this side of the ball. Unfortunately, the Bengals defensive opponents are tough, with Seattle, Buffalo, Arizona, Houston, St. Louis, and Denver on the slate in addition to the six divisional games against Baltimore, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland. We expect the Bengals to produce some fantasy numbers in 2015, but don't expect the world from this group this year.

Projections - 2015
QB1 - Andy Dalton - Passing - 3600 yds / 24 tds  Rushing - 150 yds / 0 tds
RB1 - Jeremy Hill - Rushing - 1100 yds / 10 tds  Receiving - 30 recs / 250 yds / 1 td
RB2 - Gio Bernard - Rushing - 550 yds / 3 tds  Receiving - 50 recs / 400 yds / 3 tds
WR1 - A.J. Green - Receiving - 100 recs / 1250 yds / 9 tds
WR2 - Mohamed Sanu - Receiving - 45 recs / 575 yds / 3 tds
WR3 - Marvin Jones - Receiving - 40 recs / 500 yds / 3 tds
TE1 - Tyler Eifert - Receiving - 50 recs / 550 yds / 4 tds

Defensive Outlook
Cincinnati's defense has talented players up and down the lineup, but took a step back last year after losing Mike Zimmer to the Vikings and Vontaze Burfict to injury. The team ranked 22nd in yards allowed and 12th in points allowed in 2014. The Bengals hope a healthy Burfict and Michael Johnson's signing will give the Defense the boost it needs.  We expect better production from this group over 2014, but don't predict better than top 10 rankings in 2015. 

Projections - 2015
DE1 - Carlos Dunlop  - 60 total Ts / 6 sacks / 3 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
DE2 - Michael Johnson - 55 total Ts / 5 sacks / 2 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
DT1 - Geno Adkins - 50 total Ts / 5 sack / 2 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
DT2 - Peko Domata -  40 total Ts / 2 sacks / 0 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
OLB1 - Vontaze Burfict -  130 total Ts / 3 sacks / 5 passes defensed / 4 total TOs
OLB2 - Emmanuel  Lamur - 120 total Ts / 2 sacks / 4 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
MLB - Rey Vincent - 90 total Ts / 2  sacks / 2 passes defensed / 2 total TOs
CB1 - Leon Hall - 60 total Ts / 0 sacks / 15 passes defensed / 4 total TOs
CB2 - Adam Jones- 65 total Ts / 0 sacks / 10 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
S1 - George Iloka - 85 total Ts / 0 sacks / 8 passes defensed / 5 total TOs
S2 - Reggie Nelson -  85 total Ts / 0 sacks / 5 passes defensed / 3 total TOs
