The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Saturday that second-year quarterback Ryan Finley will get the start against the division-leading Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night. Finley is replacing Brandon Allen, who is out with a knee injury.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bengals QB Ryan Finley

Bengals quarterback Ryan Finley has not had the best start to his NFL career. The former NC State signal-caller has completed 48.1 percent of his passes for 549 yards, two touchdowns, and four interceptions in seven career games.

This season, Finley has seen action in three games with mixed results. In Week 11 against the Washington Football, Finley replaced injured rookie quarterback Joe Burrow, completed 3-of-10 passes for 30 yards and an interception. He was also sacked four times in Cincinnati’s 20-9 loss.

In his last two appearances, the 6-foot-4 quarterback has completed 7-of-9 passes for 45 yards, and an interception. That being said, I don’t think it will get any better for Finley against a Steelers’ defense, who is looking to rebound after back-to-back losses.
