Cincinnati has found their franchise quarterback in Joe Burrow and he will have a great set of wide receivers to throw to early on in his career. AJ Green is back from his lengthy injury and will jump right back into the WR1 role. Tyler Boyd has had a couple strong seasons filling in and will slide into a WR2 role. After a few years of Tyler Eifert in and out of the starting tight end role, he is off the team and that leaves CJ Uzomah at tight end. Getting Jonah Williams back from injury should give the offensive line a slight bump.

Cincinnati Bengals Depth Chart FAQ

The Joe Burrow era is upon us in Cincinnati, and he will enter year one with a very good receiving core to throw to. He has AJ Green back from injury, followed by Tyler Boyd, John Ross, and Auden Tate. They also drafted Tee Higgins in the second round to prepare them for Green, potentially leaving after the season. Defensively this team has been one of the worst over the last few seasons, and it is looking like that will be the case again. While they brought in Trae Waynes and Mackensie Alexander, it won't be enough to get them over the hump. Cincinnati will get Jonah Williams back after he missed his rookie season due to injury.

Is Joe Burrow The Starting Quarterback?

Joe Burrow is entering his debut season in the NFL after a college championship. The first overall draft pick has pushed Andy Dalton out of town, and it is his time to be the starter in Cincinnati. The Bengals are hoping this is their franchise QB for years to come.

Who Is The Bengals Third Wide Receiver?

Tee Higgins is expected to be the Bengals third wide receiver. He was drafted early in the second round and is currently ahead of Auden Tate and John Ross, who has often filled in when needed.

Who Replaced Tyler Eifert?

Tyler Eifert has been the Bengals starting tight end, when healthy, over the last few seasons, and is now in Jacksonville. Eifert has been replaced by Drew Sample and CJ Uzumah, who are both going to split time at tight end.

Who Backs Up Joe Mixon?

Giovani Bernard remains on the Bengals roster as the backup running back. Given he is mostly a receiving down back and Mixon holds that role anyway, he struggles to pick up any valuable fantasy stats. Mixon would need an injury to occur for Bernard to see more playing time.

What Is The Strongest Part Of Bengals Depth Chart?

The receiving core is the clear cut strength of the Bengals depth chart. They have Tyler Boyd, who has stepped up the last few seasons and will get back AJ Green from injury. Tee Higgins, Auden Tate, and John Ross all stand as secondary options.

Who Are The Bengals Starting Cornerbacks?

Cincinnati brought in some new cornerbacks as they signed Trae Waynes and Mackensie Alexander, who were with Minnesota. They will start next to William Jackson as the top three corners on the Bengals. This pass defense has been bottom five over the last three seasons.
