Miami Dolphins
vs
Cincinnati Bengals
Sun Life Stadium | Thursday, Oct. 31 | 08:25 PM EST (NFL)

Cincinnati Bengals

    1. Andy Dalton
    2. Andy
      Dalton
      QB
    3. PASS YDS303
    4. PASS TD2
    5. INT0
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    In his last three games, Dalton has 1,034 yards and 11 TDs. Even Peyton Manning is jealous. Get him into your lineup this week and stop kicking yourself for not starting him last week.

    1. Giovani Bernard
    2. Giovani
      Bernard
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS66
    4. RUSH TD1
    5. REC YDS44
    6. REC TD0

    Bernard has struggled of late, but the Dolphins allow the fourth-most fantasy points per game to running backs.

    1. BenJarvus Green-Ellis
    2. BenJarvus
      Green-Ellis
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS43
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    He's gone two games now with fewer than four fantasy points scored. Given the six teams on bye this week, you may not have a better choice, and that's too bad.

    1. A.J. Green
    2. A.J.
      Green
      WR
    3. REC YDS101
    4. REC TD2

    Marvin Jones stole the show last week, but Green still put up 115 yards on just three catches. He'll get back in the scoring act this week.

    1. Marvin Jones
    2. Marvin
      Jones
      WR
    3. REC YDS92
    4. REC TD0

    Jones has emerged as a legitimate second option alongside A.J. Green. He should start in most fantasy leagues this week.

    1. Tyler Eifert
    2. Tyler
      Eifert
      TE
    3. REC YDS23
    4. REC TD0

    Eifert put up a typical performance last week, catching two passes for 23 yards. There's no way you can consider starting him.

    1. Jermaine Gresham
    2. Jermaine
      Gresham
      TE
    3. REC YDS18
    4. REC TD0

    Gresham caught a touchdown pass last week, but had two receptions for 14 yards total. Avoid him at all costs.

    1. Mike Nugent
    2. Mike
      Nugent
      K
    3. PAT3
    4. FG2

    Nugent didn't get a field-goal attempt last week, but still had a respectable game thanks to seven PATs.

    1. Cincinnati Bengals
    2. PTS ALLOWED16
    3. SACKS6
    4. INT1
    5. TD0

    The Bengals had a huge game last week, returning two Geno Smith interceptions for touchdowns and holding the Jets to nine points. They're a great play against a Miami team that has surrendered a league-high 32 sacks this year.

Miami Dolphins

    1. Ryan Tannehill
    2. Ryan
      Tannehill
      QB
    3. PASS YDS249
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT1
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    He struggled against the Patriots, completing 22-of-42 passes for 192 yards, two TDs and two interceptions. The Bengals have been tough on opposing quarterbacks this season. Look elsewhere.

    1. Lamar Miller
    2. Lamar
      Miller
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS57
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS22
    6. REC TD0

    Miller had his best game of the season last week, running for 89 yards on 18 carries. The Patriots have been terrible against the run since losing Vince Wilfork, though. Yardage will be much tougher to get against the Bengals.

    1. Daniel Thomas
    2. Daniel
      Thomas
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS26
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    Thomas ran well last week, but got just nine carries. His role is too small to trust against a defense as good as Cincinnati's.

    1. Mike Wallace
    2. Mike
      Wallace
      WR
    3. REC YDS82
    4. REC TD0

    Wallace and Ryan Tannehill haven't been on the same page all season. They hooked up just three times on 10 targets last week. Brandon Gibson's season-ending injury could rectify that.

    1. Brian Hartline
    2. Brian
      Hartline
      WR
    3. REC YDS73
    4. REC TD0

    Hartline had just four catches for 37 yards last week. His production really fell off a cliff in October, but it could pick up with Brandon Gibson now out for the year.

    1. Charles Clay
    2. Charles
      Clay
      TE
    3. REC YDS48
    4. REC TD1

    Clay remains a consistent part of the offense, getting eight targets against the Patriots. That could be enough to consider him this week.

    1. Caleb Sturgis
    2. Caleb
      Sturgis
      K
    3. PAT1
    4. FG3

    Sturgis had a rough day, missing two of his three field-goal attempts. His lone make was from 52 yards, though.

    1. Miami Dolphins
    2. PTS ALLOWED27
    3. SACKS2
    4. INT0
    5. TD0

    The Dolphins held Tom Brady to 116 passing yards, though that isn't much of a feat these days. I'd try to find a different option this week. The Bengals are hot.
