Bengals see Margus Hunt as left end
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Even though he barely played last season, the Bengals are anticipating a big leap from defensive end Margus Hunt in 2014. Hunt is expected to play only on the left side of the defense as part of a rotation with other defenders before moving on to playing elsewhere on the line. His body (6-foot-8, 280 pounds) is ready for the game, it's all about getting his mind right. 

"(Strength) can still be a weakness if you don't know how to use it," Hunt told the official team website. "You can be as a strong as you want, but there's a balance in football where it all needs to sit. ... A lot of time the playbook really got me on track. Now I don't feel it's a lot to put on me. I've had a year behind me."

Lewis pegs Margus Hunt as part of renewed pass rush effort
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said from the NFL Owners Meeting on Tuesday that second-year defensive end Margus Hunt will get in the mix to replace Michael Johnson as a starting pass rusher. 

"We drafted Margus (Hunt) a year ago as part of that transition," Lewis told the official team website. "And we'll have other guys that step up. Wallace Gilberry had a great year last year. Robert Geathers comes back from injury. We'll be fine."

Hunt's relative inexperience is a concern. Per ProFootballFocus.com, Hunt played on just 165 snaps last year. 

"Margus got some experience we didn't expect him to get," Lewis said. "All that is just great, no one is going to work harder at it than him. He just needs to continue to get time on task. ... It's a reactive game and he has to continue to have opportunities to react."
