Though two games, the Bengals have failed to score a single touchdown. Granted, the struggles have come against tough defenses in Baltimore and Houston, but it’s a shocking development for a team that has been above average in touchdowns three of the past four years. The Bengals’ schedule is about to get much easier (Green Bay, Cleveland, Buffalo), so it’s not the worst time to consider buying low on the likes of Joe Mixon and A.J. Green. Mixon remains in a timeshare, but he leads the team with 17 carries and is only two behind Giovani Bernard with four targets. His role only figures to expand following the team’s offensive coordinator change. Green has failed to score a touchdown, but has been targeted 16 times (28 percent target share) in two games.

With Danny Woodhead on injured reserve, we knew a larger role was likely for Allen. But not only did he play more in Week 2, he caught a touchdown pass and led the Ravens in both rushes and snaps played among running back, easily outpacing Terrance West. He picked up 66 yards on 14 carries and had five catches for 35 yards. Baltimore was playing with the lead too, so it was good to see Allen earning these reps versus West, more of a power, clock-eating back. Allen has RB2 upside in Woodhead’s absence.
When Rob Kelley departed Sunday’s win over the Rams, the door opened for Perine to earn extensive work. He rushed 21 times for 67 yards — an average output — but if Kelley cannot play this week because of injury, Perine immediately vaults into flex territory. A talented runner who was a star at Oklahoma, some have wondered if he would take over for Kelley at some point this season based off of his ability. He has better value in non-PPR leagues, as he’s not much of a threat in the passing game.
