Considerable or insignificant [url=]Youth Tyler Boyd Jersey[/url] , the Bengals offensive line is making progress. With four new starters making up the group and the average age to the right of Clint Boling being about 23 and-a-half years old, the group has kept quarterback Andy Dalton more upright than last year. Thereís still plenty of improvements to be made in the run game, but the change has been welcome and has contributed to an explosive offense through two weeks of play.The folks at Pro Football Focus would agree as they bumped the groupís ranking to 20th after placing them 26th in their offseason rankings.In similar fashion to last year, Boling remains the best blocker the Bengals have and has started his eight season on the right foot. But itís Glenn whoís made the biggest difference like we all expected when he replaced Cedric Ogbuehi at left tackle. Though a 63.7 grade isnít tremendous, the difference from Ogbuehi is, and thatís what is counting.To Priceís credit, heís graded out better than fellow rookies Mason Cole and Frank Ragnow, who are both playing on offensive lines ranked worse than Cincinnatiís. Ragnow has not transitioned to guard well and Cole was thrusted into the starting center spot because of injury. But still, the early returns for Price, specifically in pass protection, have been solid. Itís a shame we wonít see his continued progression until a few weeks from now when he returns from his foot injury. In the meantime, the comparable Trey Hopkins will fill in for him.Then thereís the inconsistent duo on the right side. Both Redmond and Hart have given up the vast majority of pressures through the first two weeks and are some of the lowest graded players at their position. The positives have shown up on tape, but so have the negatives, and more frequently as well. If the unit wants to keep improving, itís these two who need to settle down in pass protection and keep up with the rest of the group. Otherwise, 20th may be the highest ranking we see this year.NFL fantasy football waiver wire: 6 adds and 4 drops following Week 1 Week 1 in the NFL is over and youíll soon be making your first fantasy football waiver wire moves. Itís been a wild week [url=]Andy Dalton Jersey[/url] , and thereís been a lot of movers and shakers on the fantasy football front. Letís take a look at the additions and subtractions you need to be making based on surprisingly good, and surprisingly bad performances in the first week of the 2018 NFL season.Fantasy Football Week 1 AddsBuccaneers QB Ryan Fitzpatrick What about Fitzmagic? If the wily old vet keeps playing like he did against the Saints, Tampa Bay will have no choice but to keep him the starter, even Jameis Winston returns from suspension. Against the Saints, Fitzpatrick threw for 417 yards and four touchdowns while running for one score. He led all quarterbacks during the 1 p.m. ET games with 42.3 PPR fantasy points, the second-best single-game performance in his career, per ESPN.If youíve got some bad quarterback matchups coming up or your starters just stink, Fitzpatrick is someone to consider for at least the next two weeks.Patriots RB James WhiteWhite is actually getting s boost due to suspension and injury. The suspension is to Julian Edelman, who is out for three more games and leads to more targets for White, even though heís a running back.But White is also going to get more touches now after Jeremy Hill suffered what looked like a significant knee injury in Week 1. All of this led to White catching four balls for 38 yards and a score on eight targets. He also ran for 18 yards on five carries and should get a workload about this big as long as Edelman and Hill are out. Eagles WR Nelson AgholorWith Alshon Jeffery likely to remain sidelined for several more weeks, Agholor is going to remain a focal point in the Eaglesí passing game. In Week vs. the Falcons, Agholor was targeted 10 times and caught eight passes for 33 yards with one rush for 16 yards in what was a bad weather game. As long as Agholor is getting 8-10 targets per game, heíll be a viable fantasy option, especially in PPR leagues, though expect that to change once Jeffrey and Carson Wentz are healthy and running the offense. Jaguars RB T.J. YeldonPerhaps the biggest news on the fantasy football landscape in Week 1 involved Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette going down with a hamstring injury. That led to Yeldon becoming the featured back against the Giants, who he gained 51 yards on 14 runs against while grabbing three balls for 18 yards on eight targets. If Fournette misses all of Week 2 and other upcoming games [url=]Authentic A.J. Green Jersey[/url] , Yeldon will get bigger workloads and be even more productive. Heís shown in the past that he has the talent and potential to produce if he has a good offensive line to work with. He has that now, and heíll be a dangerous weapon as long as Fournette is out. If nothing else, add him as a high-upside handcuff moving forward. Washington RB Chris ThompsonWith Adrian Peterson winning the starting running back spot and getting most of the touches, Chris Thompson is still showing he can be a viable fantasy option, especially in PPR leagues. Against the Cardinals, Thompson was a featured weapon in the passing game while also getting several big runs in, finishing with 128 total yards and one score on 11 touches. Heís an easy add to make this week.Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes Folks, Mahomes is the real deal. Against a tough Chargers defense, Mahomes was arguably the best quarterback of Week 1. He finished the game with 256 passing yards and four touchdowns to go with 21 yards on five runs. Itís one game, but you couldnít have asked for a better debut, and frankly, he should perform like a QB1 with the pass-catchers and offensive-minding head coach he has. If he keeps playing like this, Mahomes will be a QB1 every week. He definitely needs to be on your fantasy team moving forward, so go get him before itís too late. Fantasy Football Week 1 DropsTitans TE Delanie WalkerOne of the best tight ends in football may already be lost for the season. According to Ian Rapoport, Walker suffered a dislocated ankle in a loss to the Dolphins. His season is very likely over, which is a really terrible situation. Heís been one of the gameís best tight ends in addition to being one of the true good guys. Cowboys WR Allen HurnsWith no Dez Bryant and Jason Witten [url=]Youth William Jackson Jersey[/url] , the Cowboys added Hurns to boost their pass-catching group this offseason. While he was once a fantasy option in Jacksonville, he looks lost in the shuffle in Dallas. After failing to do much in the preseason, Week 1 was more of the same, as he recorded just one catch on three targets. Combined with Dak Prescott continuing to look like a shell of his rookie form, dropping Hurns is a smart move to make in Week 2. Broncos RB Devontae BookerAt one point this offseason, Booker looked primed to be Denverís top running back after CJ Anderson left to sign with Carolina. But Week 1 came, and Booker was the third-string back behind Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman. Booker only got two carries for four yards and two catches for 11 yards on two targets. He needs to be dropped ASAP. Bills TE Charles ClayThe Bills are an unmitigated disaster, as evidenced by their 47-3 loss to a Ravens team thatís not even been to the playoffs in four years. Everything about Buffalo is bad, but the offense has been especially horrific throughout the preseason and into Week 1. That makes any pass-catcher droppable after just one week, especially Charles Clay, who did not catch a pass on two targets. Heís been reliable in the past, but itís time to cut bait. Bonus: Bengals RT Bobby Hart.Because heís so bad I had to mention him here, even if we canít cut him.
