both points are true and what i was looking at are the offenses they are going against. the bengals are unpredictable but are capable of putting up 40+ points and i dont think the rams have the same capability. thanks for the help
Ya I generally like to play it safe with my D/ST rather than looking for high upside. Rams will struggle to get into the end zone, and although the Bengal's offense is inconsistent, I'd rather not start the defense facing A.J. Green.
I would def go with the 49ers for two reasons. One, like everyone said, bengals have a better chance of putting up points then the Rams. And two, 49ers are at home, and having the crowd on your defense is always a plus. So roll with the 49ers.
