The Cincinnati Bengals easily beat the Miami Dolphins last night to kick off Week 4 for the NFL. Let's take a look and see which guys I was right on in yesterday's Start/Sit column. As always I'll use the scoring from my customized Yahoo league, but it's close to what these players would've scored for you.

Andy Dalton threw for 296 yards and a touchdown while being sacked 1 time. Dalton had 6 rushing attempts for -12 yards; which hurt him. He scored 11.72 fantasy points last night. I had him as a SIT and that was the right move with him.

Ryan Tannehill was a START for me last night and I was way off. Tannehill scored just 3.28 fantasy points last night. He threw for 189 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception. He was sacked 5 times and lost a fumble.

I liked Jeremy Hill last night and where I drafted him he was a START for me last night. He got injured one his first carry of the game, but still ran the football 21 times for 71 yards. Hill put up 12.35 fantasy points last  ight and I wish I could've kept him on my bench.

Giovani Bernard ran for 18 yards on 10 carries while catching 3 passes for 24 yards. Bernard scored 8.95 fantasy points last night. I had him as a SIT and that's what I hope he was for you last night.

Kenyan Drake was a SIT for me and I was right on here. Drake ran for 15 yards on 2 carries while picking up 17 return yards. Drake put up just 4.84 fantasy points last night and I hope you didn't take the chance on him.

I had Jay Ajayi as a SIT as well last night and that was a goods choice. Ajayi scored 7.60 fantasy points last night/ He ran for 33 yards on 6 carries and caught 2 passes for 13 yards. Hopefully you had another option than Ajayi.

A.J. Green was the guy to have on last nights game. Green caught 10 passes for 173 yards and a touchdown. Green put up 31.05 fantasy points last night and was the highest scorer in the game. I had Green as a START and I hope you did that.

Tyler Boyd is suppose to be filling the second receiver spot for the Bengals, but last night he was out scored by Brandon LaFell. Boyd had just 1 catch for 10 yards and scored just 1.75 fantasy points. LaFell scored 7.40 fantasy points. Maybe LaFell is the second receiver on the team. I had Boyd as a SIT and that was a good choice.

I liked Jarvis Landry and thought he'd be a good START last night. He did catch 7 passes, but put up just 61 yards. Landry scored 11.35 fantasy points and won't be worth a start this week; so I missed here.

Kenny Stills hit on a long pass last night for a touchdown and it looks like he was headed for a good fantasy night. Surprisingly that was his only catch. Stills had 74 yards and a touchdown on that 1 catch and was good for 15.40 fantasy points. I had him as a SIT and I think that was the right choice, but if you're in a deep receiver league he may be of some use this week.

Davante Parker is another guy who suppose to fill that second receiver role. Parker had just 2 catches for 20 yards and scored 3.50 fantasy points. I thought it would be best to SIT Parker and it was.

I had both Tyler Eifert and Cameron Jordan in the SIT column yesterday because I didn't think either of them would play and neither did. It may have been too easy of a choice for me, but that was the right call . C.J. Uzomah put up 7.50 fantasy points in place of Eifert last night catching 4 passes for 45 yards. I'm in a league that starts 2 tight ends and Uzomah would've been a good start in that league.

I had the Bengals Defense/Special Teams as a SIT last night and I'm going to be wrong on that one. They put up 17.01 fantasy points last night.

I had the Dolphins Defense/Special Teams unit as a SIT last night as well and I got this one right. They put up just 3.77 fantasy points last night. I won't be surprise if the Dolphins Defense/Special Teams are the lowest scoring unit of the week.

It looks as though I had a much, much better night as I hit on 11 of my picks while missing on just 4 of them. I hope it helped you set your fantasy line up for Week 4.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and feel free to let me know how Thursday night went for you.
