The Bengals on Saturday placed weak-side LB Vontaze Burfict on the PUP, which means he'll miss at least the 1st 6 weeks of the season. The move comes as no surprise after Burfict went the entire preseason without participating in a team practice. He's still working back from offseason microfracture knee surgery. Vincent Rey has started in Burfict's place in the preseason and has delivered solid fantasy numbers when called upon in the past. He should see 3-down duty as long as he's in the lineup and is well worth picking up in IDP leagues of moderate depth. A.J. Hawk has also stuck as the starter at the other outside spot, ahead of 2014 starter Emmanuel Lamur. He's still not very intriguing for IDP purposes, though.

Bengals LB Emmanuel Sanders returned to practice Saturday but turned up doubtful on the week's final injury report. A hamstring injury cost Lamur the 1st 2 days of practice this week, but ESPN.com reports there's still a chance he could be a game-time decision. "He's made a lot of progress," coach Marvin Lewis said. "With the extra day this week, obviously that helps a lot." We still wouldn't wait on Lamur and his iffy hamstring for your IDP lineup. The Denver matchup hasn't helped LB scoring this year.

A hamstring injury has cost Bengals LB Emmanuel Lamur the 1st 2 days of practice this week. We'll see about his status Saturday before the Monday night meeting with the Broncos, but Denver hasn't proved to be a great matchup for LB scoring anyway. This looks like a guy to sit in Week 16 in your IDP league, even if he starts.

The Bengals have gotten starting LBs Vontaze Burfict and Emmanuel Lamur back in practice this week. Both Burfict (neck) and Lamur (shoulder) followed limited practices Wednesday with full workouts Thursday. That certainly points to both being likely to play on Sunday. MLB Rey Maualuga remains out and appears likely to miss the rematch with Baltimore, which should leave a starting role for Vincent Rey once again. The question, however, is who will stay on the field for passing downs. That's been Burfict and Lamur when all starters are healthy. But might either OLB need a little break this week, leaving Rey to play those snaps? We'll keep an eye out for any signal. But barring some revelation, we'd have to assume that Burfict and Lamur remain the 3-down guys. Thus, they become the better IDP options over Rey, who carries upside whenever he steps into a full-time role.

The Bengals have ruled out MLB Rey Maualuga (hamstring) for Sunday's visit to Indianapolis. The team also will likely go without strong-side LB Emmanuel Lamur, who's doubtful with a shoulder injury. That would leave Vontaze Burfict as the only regular starter in the lineup, with Vincent Rey likely stepping in for Maualuga and filling a 3-down role. (The other starter won't matter for IDP puropses.) Rey presents intriguing sleeper potential in a top-10 matchup for fantasy LB scoring. The Bengals' team D outlook for the game doesn't change significantly with these 2 injuries.
