Bengals are retaining offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, signing him to a new contract.
Cincinnati was shut out in Week 1 and scored nine points in a Week 2 loss to the Texans. They then fired OC Ken Zampese and promoted Lazor. In the next 14 games, the Bengals averaged 20.1 points (on pace to finish 21st in scoring) and were 24th in yards per play run.
In a barren tight end landscape, it's been nice to see Everett accrue 16 targets over the last two weeks, and he is ranked as a TE1 with Allen missing another game. Mike Williams is a high-upside WR2 for Week 4, with Josh Palmer becoming a desperation Flex play.
To be frank, Brian Hoyer has been very bad in his most recent starts, including a 15-of-24, 130 yard, one interception performance in Week 4 of the 2020 season. Practically the entire passing offense for that Patriots is unusable at the moment.
Khalil Herbert has proved that he can handle the load with Montgomery sidelined, including his 169 scrimmage yards he accrued in Week 3. Herbert can safely be played as a fringe RB1 option against the Giants.
