Bengals vs. Chargers: Fantasy starts and sits for Week 14

The Bengals don’t exactly look poised to slow down the Chargers this week, which could be great news for your fantasy team.

Welcome to playoff week for most leagues! It is time for all your hard work this season to come down to the luck of just a few weeks. For this week, you should be loading up on Chargers, and maybe holding off on putting Bengals’ players in your lineup; as their matchup in Los Angeles looks to be a fairly uneven one.

Bengals at Chargers: TV station, radio and streaming options

How to watch the Bengals take on the Chargers in Los Angeles.

The Bengals have been all but buried at 5-7 with the injuries of Andy Dalton and A.J. Green. The team still has four games to play the role of spoiler though, and first up on the docket is the Super Chargers of Los Angeles.

Los Angeles is sitting at 9-3, but they are currently only a Wild Card team because of the 10-2 Kansas City Chiefs, which means every game is of the utmost importance to the Chargers. They are literally on...

Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict fined for hit against Broncos FB Andy Janovich

Burfict’s wallet continues to lighten. This time, by over $50,000.

Vontaze Burfict played one of his worst games of his career against the Broncos this past Sunday, and now he has something to remember the poor performance by.

The NFL is fining Burfict for $53,482 for his helmet to helmet collision he caused with Broncos’ fullback Andy Janovich, per Ian Rapaport. The hit was as loud as it was probably painful for Janovich.

The sound of the collision between #Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict...

Tyler Boyd Bengals can be unbeatable; “very open” to contract extension

The third-year wide receiver is due for an extension this offseason, and Boyd wants to put pen to paper.

Exactly one year ago, Tyler Boyd had just 95 yards on 12 catches on the tail end of a very disappointing sophomore season. Since then, he’s hauled in 79 catches for 1,068 yards and seven touchdowns.

Boyd has stayed healthy, grown into the receiver the Bengals needed him to be, and he’s done it all on an average salary of just over $1 million per year. That number could change this...

Bengals mailbag: Saving Marv, power struggles and avoiding the 90s

What’s it going to take for either Marvin Lewis or a new coach to wrestle power away from Mike Brown? With what seems like another transitional year in 2019, is Cincinnati headed for another “Dark Ages” of football?

Based on the opening day starting lineup and what we are looking at as the Cincinnati Bengals take the field in Week 14, it’s going to be a much different-looking team taking the field against the Los Angeles Chargers. If you count Vontaze Burfict, who was out of the Week...

WR Tyler Boyd open to signing extension to remain with Bengals

Tyler Boyd is having a breakout season, and he could surely expect a lucrative payday once his rookie deal expires after next season. However, it sounds like the Bengals wideout isn’t all that focused on hitting free agency, as Boyd told Jay Morrison of The Athletic that he’s open to signing an extension with Cincinnati: “I’m very open for an extension. I definitely think about that at times because all the hard work and what I’ve done has showed why I should get paid. But at the...

Andy & JJ Foundation hosted a holiday celebration for a special group of children

Thursday night Andy and JJ Dalton made the holiday season just a little more special for some kids who deserved it.

The Bengals and their fans are missing Andy Dalton on the field. He was put on injured reserve following the team’s loss to the Browns a couple of weeks ago with a thumb injury. However, that hasn’t slowed down his or his wife’s giving spirit.

On Thursday night, the Andy & JJ Dalton gave back to the Cincinnati area by treating some seriously ill and physically challenged...

Bengals at Chargers game preview: I loathe L.A.

Cincinnati travels west to face a team that they’ve had some success against lately. Could they pull a massive upset against the Chargers?

Even though they are on very different wavelengths of success in their respective 2018 campaigns, there are a lot of parallels and familiarities between the Bengals and Chargers franchises.

Sure, history ties the squads together in the form of the legendary 1981 AFC Championship Game known to many as “The Freezer Bowl”, but that’s not the only...

Final injury report: Vontaze Burfict and Dre Kirkpatrick out for Sunday

Joe Mixon practiced and will play, but he won’t have his left tackle to run behind for the second straight week.

The Bengals defense will travel to the West Coast less healthy than they were this time last week.

At linebacker, Vontaze Burfict will not play after missing all week of practice with a concussion he suffered against the Broncos. Burfict had been playin MIKE linebacker ahead of Hardy Nickerson, who filled in for Preston Brown when he was place on injured reserve a few weeks...

NFL Week 14: Bengals at Chargers

Keep track of everything related to the Bengals’ Week 14 matchup with the Chargers.

The Cincinnati Bengals are hoping to end their season on a high note. That could involve hurting at least one team’s playoff hopes, something they’ll have a chance to do this week against the Los Angeles Chargers.

The 5-7 Bengals are all but eliminated from playoff contention, but the 9-3 Chargers are firmly in the playoff mix and would need to lose several games down the stretch to miss them. They...

5 Bengals to watch for against the Chargers

The Bengals could have three rookie defensive backs active against the Chargers, and two of them will be counted on to play their best.

For all intents and purposes, the Bengals’ season is over, and their game against the 9-3 Chargers this Sunday could further hammer that final nail in their coffin. Right now, the team as a whole is not at the level of competitiveness required to win in the NFL, but we should never doubt the will to win from professional athletes, especially from the...
