Cincinnati Bengals roster updates from training camp

NFL training camp is underway and rosters will be pared down to the 53-player maximum. We’ll break down the moves as the Cincinnati Bengals sort out their roster decisions.

NFL training camp is under way and that means news will start flowing from each team. How that news will be distributed in the time of Covid-19 restrictions is still to be seen, but news will get out one way or the other. We’ll take that news and give you our fantasy and betting analysis. And that news and analysis, including roster moves, injuries, all the way to hype videos, will be disseminated right here, on this very page for the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Bengals received the first pick in the draft and selected Joe Burrow to lead the team back from the NFC North basement. They also will get wide receiver A.J. Green back, which will help Burrow’s transition to the NFL in a big way.

Player News

High fantasy/betting impact

* Signed DT Mike Daniels — August 12

Daniels missed a combined 13 games the past two seasons, but is a multi-time Pro Bowl player who could beef up the Bengals defensive interior. If he can’t stay healthy, this won’t have much of an impact.

Low fantasy/betting impact

* Signed C Maurice Smith — August 26

* Signed C Frederick Mauigoa, DT Kahlil McKenzie — August 25

* Defensive tackle Josh Tupou opts out of 2020 season. — July 31

The Bengals signed D.J. Reader and have Geno Atkins already, so Tupou isn’t a huge loss, but he is a run stuffer who can get the job done. His loss weakens the depth of the defensive line.
