This is arguably one of the most underrated defenses in football right now, particularly in the front of the 4-3. Geno Atkins is arguably the best defensive tackle in football, while Carlos Dunlap and Michael Johnson are productive bookends. The Bengals also added James Harrison from the Steelers, who will team with Rey Maualuga and Vontaze Burfict to make the linebacking corps almost as formidable. Dre Kirkpatrick and Leon Hall are underrated corners, while Pacman Jones and Terence Newman still have something left as a the backups. The Bengals just might lead your fantasy league in the amount of IDP picks, even if none of them are truly elite options at this positions. This is a very good defense that finished sixth in the NFL last year and stands to play even better this season.
