Game day update: Joe Mixon’s absence in this game could bode well for the receivers in what should be a shootout against Cleveland. All three receivers are projected in double digits today, and this could be a great garbage time opportunity at the very least.
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow leads the NFL in passing attempts and finally clicked with all three of his top targets in Week 6. The rookie signal-caller will look to get a similar level of production from his wideouts against the Cleveland Browns in Week 7.
Fantasy Football analysis: Bengals WRs Tyler Boyd, A.J. Green, Tee Higgins
Boyd and Higgins have led the way for Cincinnati’s receiving corp while Green has floundered. However, the veteran of the group had his best game of the season last week against the best pass defense on the NFL. Green notched eight receptions for 96 yards against the Indianapolis Colts while playing just as many snaps as Boyd and Higgins. Boyd is the biggest threat to take the WR1 spot from Green while Higgins has been the best deep threat capable of getting chunk yardage. The Browns have struggled against the pass and Joe Mixon has been ruled out of this matchup, so all three receivers could be viable plays.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Boyd, Green and Higgins are startable in this matchup. I’d opt for Boyd and Higgins over Green because they’ve been more consistent.
