Unless you’re a die-hard Cincinnati Bengals fan, you probably spent a minute on the Google machine last week trying to figure out who Trenton Irwin is.

That’s got nothing to do with the Buccaneers. The problem for Irwin this week is that both Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd are likely to play. Both of those guys sat out last week, clearing the way for Irwin to get more work in the passing game alongside Ja’Marr Chase. With Higgins and Boyd both in the mix, it’s hard to carve out enough looks for Irwin to be fantasy relevant.
