The Cincinnati Bengals will close out their regular season this week with an intra-conference game against the Baltimore Ravens. It’s not likely to be an easy one either, with the Ravens fighting for their playoff life. It sets up an intriguing week for the team’s trio of top wide receivers in fantasy football this week.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bengals WRs Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins, AJ Green

Boyd sat out last week’s game, and despite dealing with his injury this week too, he is going to play on Sunday. His fantasy value is limited. Green, who’s likely playing his last game with the Bengals before free agency this year, had 64 yards last week. He’s had more looks since the Bengals have turned to their backup quarterbacks in the wake of Joe Burrow’s injury, but his fantasy value is nothing more than a WR4.

Higgins is probably the best bet for fantasy here. He had 99 yards and a touchdown last week against Houston. He has a pretty consistent edge over the others in target share too. He led this group with 62 yards the last time these two teams faced off.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Tee Higgins as a WR3 this week. Sit Tyler Boyd and A.J. Green.
