Auden Tate | Bengals | WR
With A.J. Green still inactive and John Ross now sidelined, the Bengals will turn to Auden Tate as their WR2. Tate started the season as a backup to Damion Willis but took the job from him and hasn’t looked back. Tate saw 16 targets over the last two weeks, while also increasing his snap share from 41% to 89% to 93%. With just Tyler Boyd, Tate and Alex Erickson to carry the load, expect Tate to have plenty of targets to hit value at this cheap price tag. The matchup with the Cardinals also gives Tate a really good ceiling.
David Johnson | Cardinals | RB
DJ draws an amazing matchup against the Bengals this week, who have allowed the second most receptions to the RB position on the season. This suits DJ extremely well, as he has over six receptions in three of four weeks to open up the season, while averaging seven targets. The Bengals also rank among the bottom 5 teams in the league in run defense grade, while having allowed at least one rushing touchdown in every game thus far. In an offense that loves to throw the ball to the running back, and having a safe floor of touches, we love the floor/ceiling combination of David Johnson this week and think he is an elite play in both formats for the main slate.
