The solution the Bengals problems could hinge on a quarterback selected with the potential No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 draft. During Sunday's home game against the Steelers, a stadium filled with fans wearing black and yellow also featured a sign that said "Let's Grow With Joe," a reference to LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, an Ohio native and Heisman candidate.
The Bengals are trying to establish a foundation as well as boost the number of fans in the seats so taking a QB first overall seems like the way to go. Of course, we're a long way from that, but the team clearly didn't like what it saw from Finley, and will go back to Dalton in Week 13.
CIN QB Ryan Finley - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 11 at Oakland
It wasn't a great NFL debut for Ryan Finley as he completed only 53% of his passes for 167 yards. He threw a touchdown pass but also turned the ball over twice. From a fantasy standpoint, there wasn't much to judge except we were watching a rookie quarterback making his first start and he looked like it.
Finley faces the Raiders who are 30th in aFPA to quarterbacks. Even with a very favorable matchup, there isn't much to expect from Finley. Keep him on the bench and waiver wire for Week 11.
