Zack Moss Signs With Bengals - Fantasy Impact

On the first day of free agency, the Bengals decided to make a move in their backfield. The team were rumoured to be cutting Joe Mixon before trading him to the Texans, and brought in Moss on a two-year $8m contract.

Moss had the best season of his career as part of the Colts backfield. Starting the season as the starter with Jonathan Taylor on the sidelines, his performances led to him being involved when Taylor returned. In his performances, Moss was able to show that he was capable of leading a backfield. The Bengals might look to bring Chase Brown into the rotation more, but it will be Moss that is going to be the starter.

Heading into the season, Moss feels like a low-end RB2, with Brown and Moss’ injury history counting against him. Although, similar to Mixon in this offense, there will be some boom weeks. Going to end up being a very popular ‘sleeper’ pick for redraft leagues, depending on where he ends up being drafted. In dynasty leagues, he has a little bump in value, with a new team (and effective offense), but not a huge amount has been invested in him.
