This year, we’re bringing you a new series covering each NFL division’s dynasty fantasy football outlook. We’ll bring you an overview of each team, highlight the best and worst positional groups, and make some cool predictions for the division as a whole. Let’s jump into it!

AFC North Outlook:

Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals are one of dynasty fantasy football's most universally loved teams.

They have a superstar quarterback in Joe Burrow and two high-end wide receivers in Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins. I fully expect them to build their offense around those three players long-term, and I wouldn’t be surprised if both Burrow and Higgins receive contract extensions before the season begins.

However, they have some uncertainty across the rest of their roster, especially at the running back position. They let Samaje Perine walk in free agency, replacing him with fifth-round pick Chase Brown. Additionally, they seem unwilling to commit to longtime starter Joe Mixon, although it seems like he will play there one more season.

Beyond the running backs, the Bengals also failed to add any tight ends in the 2023 NFL Draft, leaving Irv Smith Jr. as their starter. But they drafted Charlie Jones and Andrei Iosivas to muddy the wide receiver room, potentially competing with Tyler Boyd for the WR3 spot. The Bengals are an exciting mix of certainty and uncertainty moving forward.
