Cincinnati Bengals QB Ryan Finley completed 7-of-13 passes for 89 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he added 10 runs for 47 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Finley's passing numbers weren't great, but they didn't have to be. He and the running backs crushed the Steelers for 152 yards on the ground with two scores in the upset win. He isn't someone to target in fantasy football down the stretch despite the win.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Ryan Finley will start Monday, Dec. 21, in the team's Week 15 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with Brandon Allen (knee) ruled out with a knee injury Saturday, head coach Zac Taylor announced.
Huddle Up: Finley will be Cincy's third starting QB this season, and the second-year player doesn't elicit much confidence having gone 0-3 as a starter last season, throwing for only 474 yards, two TDs and two interceptions in those contests and guiding the Bengals to 33 total points. In three appearances this season, Finley is 10-of-19 for 75 yards and a pair of interceptions. Use him in a deep two-quarterback league only as a last resort. Meanwhile, it's downgrade for the rest of the Cincy offense and an added boon for those using the Steelers' defense this week.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Ryan Finley completed 3-of-10 passes for 30 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in Week 11 against the Washington Football Team while getting sacked four times in relief of the injured QB Joe Burrow (leg, knee).
Huddle Up: Burrow indicated in a tweet that he was out for the season, so it looks like Finley might be taking the reins of the offense for the long haul. He isn't someone to bother with in fantasy football, and the loss of Burrow crushes the fantasy appeal of guys like Tyler Boyd, A.J. Green, Tee Higgins, etc.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Ryan Finley completed 12-of-26 passes for 192 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 12 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he rushed for eight more yards.
Huddle Up: It wasn't a great showing for Finley, but at least he seemed to develop a little better of a rapport with Tyler Boyd in this one.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Ryan Finley went 13-of-31 for 115 yards with an interception in Week 11 against the Oakland Raiders. He also ran for 47 yards on three carries and lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Finley also took five sacks. Keeping in mind he is working behind the bad offensive line and doesn't have A.J. Green at his disposal, Finley hasn't looked the part of an NFL quarterback through two career starts, completing only 47.5 percent of his throws. Even in two-quarterback leagues, it's tough to make a case to start the rookie. He definitely does not belong anywhere close to a starting lineup in fantasy as the Bengals host the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 12.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Ryan Finley completed 16-of-30 passes for 167 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens while adding five runs for 22 yards in his first NFL start.
Huddle Up: Finley took the reins of the offense in place of veteran Andy Dalton, but the results were basically the same. He was sacked twice and he did very little in another blowout loss for the Bengals. They'll look for their first win in Oakland in Week 11, but Finley isn't even worth a look as a QB2 in most fantasy formats at this point.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Ryan Finley was named the starting quarterback Tuesday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: Finley has little upside with the offensive line a mess and the receiving corps decimated by injuries. He's worth a look in two-quarterback leagues or long-term leagues because WR A.J. Green (ankle) could return in the next couple of weeks.
