2. The Bengals will field a top-five offense
The Bengals offense is going to benefit from three major additions this season. Green’s return from injury has the potential to transform the receiving corps. Burrow’s injection into the passing game could open up the field like never before.
Those are the additions everyone is talking about. The one name that isn’t getting the attention he deserves is tackle Jonah Williams. He missed his entire rookie season due to injury. If he comes back healthy and raring to go in 2020 he could become Burrow’s most important protector.
Williams isn’t a road grader, but he is a technician who can excel in pass blocking out on the edge. That’s a good quality for a left tackle who needs to keep the team’s new franchise quarterback upright.
There’s also a strong chance that young players like Billy Price and Drew Sample can take a big step forward in their sophomore campaigns. Simply put, this offense is going to take a massive step forward in 2020. Bet on Burrow to be the catalyst to make it an elite group.
