Patriots vs Bengals: Chad Ocho Kicko | Player Rankings
This was not the game of the ages but it was very funny to see that Chad Ochocinco’s leg was the difference in the outcome of the game. Chad had to kick what would end up being the game winning extra point in this 7-6 preseason clash between the Bengals and Patriots. The reason Chad was in was because regular kicker Shayne Graham hurt him self prior to the game. Cedric Benson flashes receiving skills I’ve been talking up Cedric Benson this entire summer as a guy that will make for a nice cheep draft pick in fantasy football this year. Benson is going to be the Bengals feature running back and has looked good so far in the preseason.
Seeing Benson grab three catches for 25 yards in short work tonight made me very happy as he will be only more valuable if he catches the football. Look for Benson as a late middle round pick at your fantasy draft and stash him away as a good fill in player to start the season.
Chad Ochocinco and Chris Henry are impressive again
This week Chad and Chris Henry were without their pro bowl quarterback Carson Palmer because he is a bit banged up. But if you were to look from last week against the Saints to this week you would never know they had a different quarterback based on their production.
Ocho had three catches for 69 yards receiving and Henry had four catches for 55 yards and another touchdown (scored last week as well).
If Chris Henry keeps going like this he might push Laveranues Coles out of the starting lineup by mid season. I can’t believe I’m saying this but if you have the room on your roster at the end of your fantasy draft than you should get Henry on your team. Patriots have a boring game Last week the Patriots had all the headlines as Tom Brady returned to the field and had a good game against the Eagles. This week he was ok in short work and did connect on a nice play to Wes Welker but was boring other than that.
Fred Taylor had a decent productive game with 7 carries for 26 yards but that is about the only other real news for the Patriots this week.
