2019 Fantasy Outlook
Finley was the only quarterback that the Bengals brought in for pre-draft workouts, so it's not a surprise that they selected him with the second pick of the fourth round. But he isn't an obvious heir apparent for Andy Dalton, who has two years remaining on his deal with the Bengals. Jeff Driskel remains on the team and could even be the primary backup over Finley to begin the season. Finley threw for 3,928 yards in his senior season at North Carolina State, averaging 8.1 yards per attempt. His arm strength is considered average and he doesn't offer much mobility.

Turns it over twice in debut
QBCincinnati Bengals
November 10, 2019
Finley completed 16 of 30 passes for 167 yards with a touchdown and an interception during Sunday's 49-13 loss to Baltimore. He added 22 yards on five carries and lost a fumble.
ANALYSIS
The stat line isn't particularly impressive and the scoreboard paints an ugly picture, but the rookie made some nice plays in his debut, particularly a well-placed six-yard loft to Tyler Eifert just before halftime for his first career touchdown. Cincinnati is speeding toward the top pick of the draft, so the Bengals figure to get a long look at what Finley offers on a depleted roster that is still without A.J. Green (ankle). Week 11 could be brighter, as the Bengals visit Oakland and a pass defense that ranks 29th in the league in opponent quarterback percentage (109.1).
