But I have my eye on these Bengals for a variety of reasons, and a few of them have to do with the 49ers' defense. As in, it's not good. In fact, it has been pretty awful so far. No defense has allowed more fantasy points to wide receivers. The Dallas Cowboys' Miles Austin was hurt in Week 2, and still he strafed it. And nobody bothered to cover Jesse Holley on the Cowboys' first snap of overtime. The Bengals are going to enjoy Sunday's game, a sleeper offense if you will, but it also helps that this is a fresh, young and exciting offense that seems to be getting better quickly.
For Eric's analysis of both the Bengals and 49ers offenses, you must be an ESPN Insider.
