Bengals' Andrei Iosivas (knee) inactive for Thursday Night Football in Week 11
What it means:
The Cincinnati Bengals have ruled out receiver Andrei Iosivas (knee) for Thursday's Week 11 game against the Baltimore Ravens. Iosivas is dealing with a knee injury, costing him a potential opportunity to shine with Tee Higgins (hamstring) sidelined. The Bengals elevated fellow 2023 rookie receiver Charlie Jones from the injured reserve to replace Iosivas for tonight's game, but the team is likely to continue funneling targets to Ja'Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd. Our model has Trenton Irwin and Tanner Hudson battling for the third pass-catcher role in the Bengals' pass-heavy offense this week, projecting the pair for 6.58 and 5.22 FanDuel points respectively. Quarterback Joe Burrow's high passing volume means the team could be capable of sustaining more than just Chase and Boyd for fantasy, putting Irwin and Hudson on the radar as deep plays for fantasy in Week 11.
