The Sporting News - [Full Article]

Late last season, teams could take away the passing game by shutting down WR A.J. Green because the Bengals did not have a receiver who excelled on short to medium routes. With Jerome Simpson and Andre Caldwell gone, it looks to be a three-player competition among Brandon Tate, Armon Binns and Mohamed Sanu. Tate and Binns showed improvement during OTAs and minicamp, but Sanu, a third-round pick, might have the edge because he is a physical receiver who excels between the numbers.

Fantasy Impact: 

Tate appears to be in the lead for the WR2 job, though it's early. We're expecting TE Jermaine Gresham to get the second-most targets in the Cincy passing game.
