Found October 26, 2011 on The Hazean:

The Cam Newton show continued this week after a layoff the previous week. Even when he is not throwing for a score he will run for one. He has a rushing touchdown in 4 straight games. He continues to get better which is impressive. He is already the third overall player in several fantasy formats, trailing only Rodgers and Brees.

The unmentionables:
2. A.J. Green, WR, Bengals- Green leads all rookies in catches, yards and touchdowns, enough said.
3. Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals- The Bengals have a great young duo with Dalton and Green. Now with a possible two first round draft picks coming from the Raiders, Dalton has to be excited about the possibilities.
4. DeMarco Murray, RB, Cowboys- Murray nearly took over the rookie rushing lead in one game. Hopefully he will still get opportunities when Felix Jones returns.
5. Mark Ingram, RB, Saints- Ingram had his best performance in a Saints uniform. He had 91 yards rushing, averaging 6.5 yards a carry. Hopefully his bruised heel will not slow him down.
6. Daniel Thomas, RB, Dolphins-Thomas has slowed down a bit since his start, but he still belongs in the top ten rookie fantasy contributors.
7. Julio Jones, WR, Falcons- Julio falls after missing two straight games. Plus, he still has not scored. It is hard to do that while watching the game in street clothes.
8. Doug Baldwin, WR, Seahawks- Baldwin let down all his fantasy owners that may have started him last week against the Browns.
9. Dane Sanzenbacher, WR, Bears- He is tied for second in rookie receiving touchdowns. He has impressed thus far in his rookie venture.
10. Greg Little, WR, Browns- He is consistently catching 5 and 6 balls a game for the Browns. He just cannot punch it in the end zone. That is why he is rounding out the top ten this week.


Seahawks Whiffed Twice On Bengal QB’s

As the Bengals head west  to  face the Seahawks, it seems a great deal of the pre-game attention has been paid to the matter of quarterbacks. We all know the story in Cincinnati.  Fans here are pretty much pleased as punch with the development of our young Andy Dalton.  As a second-round pick, the “Red Rifle” has acquitted himself quite [...]

Dalton now the franchise future for ascending Bengals

  SEATTLE, Wash. — There was little doubt that TCU rookie quarterback Andy Dalton would be taking the reins of the Cincinnati Bengals' offense in 2011 — with team owner Mike Brown and former franchise quarterback Carson Palmer at loggerheads about where Palmer would ply his trade in the future and Palmer threatening to retire, the move to take Dalton in the second round...

Must-Read Piece From Yahoo On Dalton, Palmer, Bengals

There are great stories ... and then there are must-read pieces like this one from Yahoo on the new-look Bengals led by Andy Dalton and how Carson Palmer quit on the team during the season last year.

The Cincinnati Bengals are getting solid production out of the WRs so far this year

It was looking pretty awful in the pre-season as far as the Bengals’ passing game was going.  But, when the regular season started, the kids have stepped up.  Rookie A.J. Green is everything the Bengals thought he would be, and more so far this year.  Green has caught 29 passes for 453 yards (15.6 avg) with 4 TD grabs in 2011.  He is going to be a true #1 WR for the Bengals...

My thoughts on the Palmer trade

Of all that's being written about the Bengals' recent on- and off-field success lately, the most backward viewpoint has to be that which Peter King expressed in his recent MMQB: I think if the season was seven weeks long and I had to vote today, my Executive of the Year would be Mike Brown. It's not just the Palmer trade. It's sticking to his guns on draft day...
