After shocking the Steelers, Ryan Finley and the Cincinnati Bengals have a favorable matchup against the Houston Texans in Week 16.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bengals QB Ryan Finley

Finley led the Bengals to an upset win over the Steelers in Week 15, and put up a solid 18.26 fantasy points in the process. Even with just throwing for 86 yards, Finley had a touchdown pass and ran for a score. Though it’s reasonable to take his performance as a pleasant surprise, it wouldn’t be farfetched to see his fantasy production repeat against the Texans this week. Houston has allowed 17 or more points to opposing quarterbacks in 11 of 14 games this year, including 25.00 to Mitchell Trubisky and 21.50 to Jake Lutton.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

If you’re really in a bind at the quarterback position and have no other top streaming option available, Finley has the potential for a solid floor.
