Where Will Fuller gives the Vikings more of what hasn’t worked, he gives the Bengals exactly what they need opposite A.J. Green.
Brandon Tate is coming back to join Green and quarterback Andy Dalton, but he isn’t a legitimate number two receiver. Fuller has speed to get down the field and keep safeties from collapsing on short and intermediate routes by Green and tight end Tyler Eifert.
The three would create mismatch problems for opposing defenses and limit blitzing abilities which would directly benefit running backs Giovanni Bernard and Jeremy Hill.
With most of the Bengals’ defense returning, a bolstered passing attack ensures they are in the hunt come playoff time.
