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.

Likely ahead of Driskel

Finley appears to have moved ahead of Jeff Driskel in the battle for the No. 2 role behind starting quarterback Andy Dalton, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.
Finley has a number of factors working in his favor. His draft status as a rookie fourth-round pick and his performance in practice and in the first preseason game -- where he connected on 12 passes in a row -- are likely the chief reasons that Finley will emerge from the competition with the backup job. Additionally, the Bengals saw plenty of Driskel last season -- and the mediocre results that came with that -- which may have been a main motivation in selecting Finley in the first place. The fact that Driskel has been getting some reps at wide receiver is also indicative of his declining standing.
