The (4-7) Jets have been on a roll. They are currently on a three-game win streak and looking to extend that this week. Sam Darnold has greatly improved from earlier and their overall offense looks a lot better. They have gotten passed their two games against the Patriots so it only gets easier from here for the Jets. On the other side of the ball, the Bengals are still looking for their first win. They still have a couple more games where they could pull it off but they are running out of time. They have switched back to Andy Dalton as Ryan Finley could not find a way to get the Bengals a win.

New York Jets Analysis

New York JetsThe most positive sign for the Jets is their offense. In the past three games, they have scored 34 in every contest. Sam Darnold has greatly improved since his first couple of games back from mono. In his last four games, he has thrown 8 touchdowns while throwing just 2 interceptions. In the three games prior to that, he had 4 touchdowns with 8 total interceptions. This improvement has worked wonders for the Jets. They are able to score and help out their defense who doesn’t have to stay on the field constantly.

To beat the Bengals, it won’t be that hard. If the Jets can put up 34 points again, they have a 100% chance of winning as the most the Bengals have scored in a game is 23. They have managed to lose 11 straight games so the odds are in the Jets’ favor. Le’Veon Bell should be able to roll all over the Bengals’ defense as they have the worst run defense in the league. They have averaged 166.4 rushing yards per game against them. With Darnold heating up and the opportunity for Bell to rack up yards, the Jets look unbeatable this week.

Cincinnati Bengals Analysis

Cincinnati BengalsThe Bengals still have yet to win a single game this year. They could quite possibly join the Lions and the Browns as teams who have gone 0-16 (other teams have gone winless but not since the 16-game schedule). They have made a change at quarterback since their first change did not work. They are returning to Andy Dalton, who began the season at quarterback for the Bengals, in place of Ryan Finley. Finley could not give the Bengals their much-needed win, so the return to Dalton makes sense. Something will have to click eventually.

The Jets are a very beatable team for the Bengals. In past weeks, the Jets’ offense has looked incapable of producing anything. They haven’t actually made any changes to it since then, they are just playing better now. That does not mean that they won’t return to their original output. The key will be frustrating Darnold. Ever since he has begun to get it going, the Jets have gotten it going. By keeping him out of sync with his receivers and pressuring him, it will be very difficult for the Jets’ offense to do anything.

Daily Fantasy: Sound the Bell

Le’Veon bellThe Bengals have the worst run defense in the league, allowing 166.4 rushing yards per game. Le’Veon Bell is alone in the backfield and should easily reach 100 yards this week. On top of that, the Bengals have allowed the second-highest number of rushing touchdowns with 13. Bell’s ability to not just run the ball but also make plays in the passing game as well will be very valuable. Along with a ton of rushing yards, he will have his normal share of the passing game. With Darnold on a hot streak, Bell’s usage will only go up. The success of the Jets’ offense means more plays for Bell to be involved and rack up fantasy value.
