Bengals defensive struggles continue


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The Bengals defense provided little resistance to the Colts in Week 7, in a 27-0 loss Sunday.

The Bengals defense was on the field for nearly 40 minutes Sunday, and was unable to sustain a solid star to the game. They held the Colts to 10 first-half points, but were tagged for 17 points in the second half, and ultimately surrendered 506 yards of total offense in the shutout loss. They did recover two fumbles while picking up a pair of sacks to make the final line look a little better from a Fantasy perspective.

The Bengals DST unit looked like one of the league's best in averaging 13 Fantasy points per game through three games. However, they have just 11 combined points over the last three, with a tough matchup against the Ravens on the way in Week 8. 


Bengals DST clearly in a rut


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2014) After a terrific start to the season, the Bengals fell victim to the resurgent Patriots in Week 5 and then continued to flounder Week 6 against Carolina, allowing 37 points on 431 yards in a game that ultimately ended in a tie.

So after allowing an average of 11.0 points on 352.7 yards in their first three games, the Bengals have allowed an average of 40.0 points on 468.0 yards in their last two. They had an interception in Week 6, but no sacks. It was their first game without a sack this season just like Week 5 was their first game without an interception.

They're struggling in all aspects, basically, which makes the Bengals DST not the most advisable in Fantasy right now. Maybe with a favorable matchup, you could bank on a rebound, but that's not what the Bengals have Week 7 at Indianapolis, the league's highest-scoring team.


Bengals LB Rey Maualuga suffers hamstring injury Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga left Sunday's game against the Panthers in the fourth quarter due to a hamstring injury. He had four tackles (two solo) before leaving the game.

Marvin Jones among Bengals inactives Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Bengals cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris, linebacker Khairi Fortt, defensive tackle Brandon Thompson, offensive lineman Kevin Zeitler, wide receiver Marvin Jones and defensive end Will Clarke were among the team's inactives Week 6 vs. Carolina.

Bengals DST falters against Patriots


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2014) Off to a strong start defensively, the Bengals couldn't have picked a worse time to visit New England. Coming off a 41-14 shellacking at Kansas City, one of the rare embarrassments for Bill Belichick and Tom Brady during their time together, the Patriots exploded for 43 points on 505 yards. The Bengals were helpless to stop them, recording a sack without the benefit of a turnover.

The 43 points were 10 more than the Bengals allowed in their first three games combined. They averaged 2.3 sacks and 2.0 interceptions in those games.

Despite the poor showing, the Bengals remain a strong defensive team. You'll want to keep their DST active for Week 6 against Carolina.


Bengals hope to have Vontaze Burfict back for Week 5


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis told reporters he "would imagine" to have linebacker Vontaze Burfict back for Week 5 against the Patriots, per the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Burfict missed Week 3 against the Titans with a concussion. He will need to receive medical clearance before returning to the practice field. He has eight total tackles and one forced fumble through two games.


Bengals notch two sacks, two interceptions in blowout win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) The Bengals defense dominated the Titans Sunday, racking up two sacks and two interceptions in the team's 33-7 Week 3 win.

Cincinnati was pitching a shutout before the Titans managed a fourth-quarter score after falling behind 33-0. The Bengals defense also notched a safety after the Titans were called for a penalty in their own end zone. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap had six tackles and one of the team's sacks, giving him three straight games with a sack to open the season. Rookie cornerback Darqueze Dennard recorded the other sack. Defensive end Robert Geathers and safety Reggie Nelson both notched their first interceptions of the season in the win. The Bengals should face a much tougher test after a Week 4 bye when they travel to New England.


Vontaze Burfict among Bengals' inactives in Week 3


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict (concussion) is inactive as expected after being listed as doubtful on the team's final Week 3 injury report.

Other players who were listed as doubtful that are inactive include running back Rex Burkhead (knee), linebacker Sean Porter (hamstring), guard Kevin Zeitler (calf) and defensive tackle Brandon Thompson (knee). Wide receiver Marvin Jones (foot) and cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris are also inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Titans.


Bengals shut down Falcons passing game


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Facing an offense that piled up 568 yards in Week 1, the Bengals defense rose to the occasion in Week 2, limiting the visiting Falcons to 10 points on 309 yards.

The Bengals did an especially good job of preventing yards after the catch, limiting most of the Falcons' completions to short gains. They also had two sacks and three interceptions, including two by George Iloka.

The Bengals, who also had a strong defensive performance at the Ravens in Week 1, will look to keep it going Week 3 against the Titans.


Leon Hall gets first interception


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Bengals defensive back Leon Hall recorded his first interception of the 2014 season Week 2 against Atlanta, catching a pass that deflected off the hands of tight end Levine Toilolo in the third quarter.

Hall, who had one interception last season, also had six tackles, including five solo, in the contest.


George Iloka leads Bengals defense


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Bengals defensive back George Iloka, who entered the day with just one career interception, tripled that total Week 2 against Atlanta, picking off quarterback Matt Ryan twice in the second half.

Iloka also had a solo tackle.


Carlos Dunlap gets another sack


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Bengals defensive lineman Carlos Dunlap recorded his second sack in as many games Week 2 against Atlanta. He also had two tackles, including one solo.

Dunlap had 7 1/2 sacks for the Bengals last season.


Emmanuel Lamur big on tackles again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Though Bengals linebacker Emmanuel Lamur didn't quite match the 11 tackles he had in Week 1, he had another strong performance Week 2 against Atlanta, finishing with eight tackles, including five solo.

Lamur missed all of last season with a dislocated shoulder. He entered 2013 with only 19 tackles in his career.


Terence Newman leads way in tackles


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Bengals defensive back Terence Newman, who had six tackles in Week 1, topped himself Week 2 against Atlanta, leading the team with nine tackles, including six solo.

Newman never had more than six tackles in a game in 2013.


Vontaze Burfict doesn't last whole game


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was slow walking off the field in the third quarter Week 2 against Atlanta with what at first seemed like a recurrence of the concussion he suffered in Week 1. The Bengals announced he had a stinger, however, and ruled him out for the rest of the game.

Burfict, the league's leading tackler with 171 last season, had four tackles, including two solo, before leaving.


Brandon Thompson hurts knee


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Bengals defensive lineman Brandon Thompson hurt his left knee in the first half Week 2 vs. Atlanta and was ruled out for the rest of the game.

Thompson did not contribute statistically before leaving. He had four tackles in Week 1.


Geno Atkins' feet don't keep him down


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Bengals defensive lineman Geno Atkins, who was limited in practice leading up to the game with a foot issue, is active for Week 2 against Atlanta. He was listed as probable on Friday's injury report.

Atkins missed the final seven games last year with a torn ACL. He had one tackle in Week 1.


Carlos Dunlap set for Week 2


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Bengals defensive lineman Carlos Dunlap is active for Week 2 against Atlanta. He was limited in practice by a hamstring injury leading up to the game but was listed as probable on Friday's injury report.

Dunlap recorded a sack in Week 1 after recording 7 1/2 last year.


Vontaze Burfict able to take the field


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who left Week 1 at Baltimore with a concussion, is active for Week 2 against Atlanta. He returned to practice Friday after sitting Wednesday and Thursday but was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report.

Vontaze Burfict cleared to return from concussion


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has been cleared to play in Week 2 against the Falcons Sunday, according to ESPN.com. Burfict suffered a concussion in the team's opener, but got through the concussion protocol prior to the game and should be able to play. 

Geno Atkins makes little impact in return


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Bengals defensive lineman Geno Atkins had a quiet return from injury in Week 1 against the Ravens, in a 23-16 win Sunday.

Atkins, who missed seven games a year ago after tearing his ACL, had just one tackle in his return to action, and did not get to the quarterback in the game. Afterwards he had to be carted off the field, but was just dealing with dehydration, according to coach Marvin Lewis. Atkins played 49 of 88 defensive players for the Bengals. 


Wallace Gilberry gets to the QB in opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) The Bengals got a big game out of defensive lineman Wallace Gilberry in Week 1, a 23-16 win over the Ravens Sunday.

Gilberry finished the game with four tackles, and added 1.5 sacks and a pass defense as well.  


Reggie Nelson racks up 10 stops


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Bengals defensive back Reggie Nelson made his impact felt in Week 1 against the Ravens Sunday, in a 23-16 win.

Nelson came in second on the team with 10 tackles in the game -- seven solo -- and added a half-sack to his line as well. 


Emmanuel Lamur picks off pass in career-best performance


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Bengals linebacker Emmanuel Lamur put together a strong performance in Week 1 against the Ravens, in his return from a labrum injury that cost him all of last season.

Lamur made his presence felt in the game, racking up a career-high 11 tackles -- five solo. He added an interception, the first of his career, and a pass defense as well. 


Bengals force two turnovers in season-opening win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) The Bengals defense did a solid job for most of Sunday's 23-16 win over the Ravens in Week 1.

The Ravens ended up with 420 yards of total offense in the game, but most of that came late. The Bengals DST unit did a good job limiting the Ravens offense despite being on the field for 85 plays. The Bengals forced two turnovers -- one interception and one fumble recovery -- while sacking Joe Flacco three times in the win.

The Bengals did a very solid job against the Ravens, but things will be much tougher next Sunday. The Falcons come to Cincinnati in Week 2, making the Bengals a subpar option for all Fantasy formats.
