What to do with Ryan Finley in Week 12 fantasy football

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Ryan Finley ahead of the Bengals Week 12 matchup against the Giants.

Last week Cincinnati Bengals rookie quarterback Joe Burrow went down with a season-ending injury, meaning its the Ryan Finley show for the rest of 2020.

He’ll be making his first start of the season this week against the New York Giants, who have been surprisingly effective against opposing quarterbacks.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bengals QB Ryan Finley

The second-year quarterback will be making the fourth start of his career looking to find his first win. Last week against the Washington Football Team Finley completed just three of his 10 passes and threw and interception.

The Giants defense has been solid against signal callers this year, ranking as the 5th best passing D in the league from a fantasy perspective. The G men only allow just over 16 fantasy points per game and have given up just 14 scores through the air this season.

There’s really no reason to start Finley unless every other starting QB in the league has been picked up already.
