The Cincinnati Bengals added some talent during the 2022 NFL Draft who should have a fantasy impact for this upcoming season. Before we dive into what impact these rookies could have on the Bengals in 2022, let’s look back at last season.
The Bengals, of course, struck fantasy gold when drafting wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase with the No. 5 pick during last year’s draft. The former LSU wideout broke Justin Jefferson’s rookie receiving yards records and will be a prime WR1 option in fantasy leagues for years to come. The eventual AFC champions also used a fifth-round pick on kicker Evan McPherson, who proved to be money throughout the regular season and the playoffs.
During this offseason, Cincy has focused its free-agency efforts on fixing its offensive line and replaced departing tight end C.J. Uzomah with Hayden Hurst.
