    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill is still the starting running back, according to offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. 'Jeremy hasn't had the success that he had a year ago, and I think that's what everybody's looking for,' Jackson said of his back who averaged 5.1 yards per carry last year. 'But Jeremy's playing and playing well. Jeremy's still our starting tailback. Everybody has seen over the last couple games that (Giovani Bernard) has got more carries, more opportunities than Jeremy. Well, eventually that's going to flip.

    Huddle Up: With Bernard getting more touches, especially as a pass-catcher, and Hill having notched five rushing TDs, both backs are still startable. It's just that Hill isn't returning the RB1 value he was drafted to provide and should be slotted accordingly.

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 9, and is listed as probable for the Week 5 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Hill upped his practice participation Friday after being limited Wednesday and Thursday but will face a Seahawks' defense which has surrendered the second-fewest fantasy points to opposing RBs so far.

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill has seven fumbles in 18 career NFL games. The fact that Hill was benched in favor of RB Giovani Bernard, who ran 20 times for 123 yards in Week 2 against the San Diego Chargers, further hammered home the point for Hill. 'We can't have the back fumbling the football,' head coach Marvin Lewis said. 'Jeremy's a talented young player and we've got to keep the football. That wasn't part of his deal last year and we can't let it creep in.' Hill had five fumbles as a rookie in 2014.

    Huddle Up: This was an issue overlooked by many fantasy GMs and analysts as Hill vaulted up into RB1 territory this summer. It's also impossible to plan for as Hill could fumble and be yanked from a game at any time like he was Sunday. Hill's upside is undeniable -- witness his 18.3 fantasy points in Week 1 -- but the risk also is real until he can get a better handle on the pigskin.

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill is likely to see a majority of the reps in the backfield over RB Giovani Bernard, according to beat writer Paul Dehner Jr.

    Huddle Up: This should come as no surprise, as Hill took over the lead role in Cincy's backfield last season. If anything Hill will see an even greater workload, with Gio spotted more from scrimmage and used in the return game as well.

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill has been told to embrace the hype surrounding him in 2015 by offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. 'To me, if a guy wants to be great, he's got to relish that,' Jackson said. 'He's got to want that and then go exceed it. That would be my challenge to (Hill). I expect him to exceed whatever the expectation is about him.'

    Huddle Up: The 2014 second-round pick finished his rookie campaign with a flourish -- totaling the league's second-most rushing yards (775) over the second half of the season -- and despite the continued presence of 2013 second-rounder Giovanni Bernard, has moved up into no-doubt RB1 range.

  • Posted: 7/4/2015 1:36am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill said he wanted to build up the strength in his legs this offseason in hopes of improving his acceleration into the second level of opposing defenses. Hill said he believes he was tackled by the first defender too often last season.

    Huddle Up: The 2014 second-rounder led all NFL backs with 720 rushing yards from Week 11 on last season while averaging a cool 5.1 yards per carry for the whole season, making it a little scary to think he believes he can be even better this season. Be prepared to spend a second-round pick to get Hill in drafts this summer.

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill said he expects to share carries with RB Giovani Bernard this upcoming season. 'Obviously there's going to be a balanced attack,' Hill said. 'I don't think he's got to wear either one of us out, so that way we can make it through all 16 games for a playoff push.'

    Huddle Up: Last year, the rookie Hill received 222 rushes and 249 total touches to Bernard's 168 and 211, respectively, and a good deal of that gap can be chalked up to Bernard missing three games. So, in essence, it projects to be a fairly even split again, but both backs are still usable as a low-end RB1 (Hill) and a high-end RB3 (Bernard).

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill (ankle) injured his ankle in the team's wild-card playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Jan. 4. Hill had 13 carries for 47 yards and a touchdown in the loss.

    Huddle Up: As if Cincy needed more personnel issues, since they were already without their top two WRs and top two TEs. Hill's injury may have led to the uptick in touches for Giovani Bernard, though most of them came in the passing game and may have been more a result of the Bengals trailing rather than Hill's injury. Nonetheless, it does offer an explanation for Hill's subdued totals from Cincy's first-round loss.

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill carried 22 times for 147 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 game against the Denver Broncos Monday, Dec. 22.

    Huddle Up: Hill's stat line was bolstered by a dazzling 85-yard touchdown run. He has separated himself from Giovani Bernard as the primary--and most effective fantasy--back in Cincinnati

  • Posted: 12/23/2014 12:41am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill rushed for 147 yards and a TD on 25 carries Monday, Dec. 22 in a 37-28 win over the Denver Broncos. His scoring run was a career-long 85-yarder in the first quarter.

    Huddle Up: Hill will be a frequent member of a number of fantasy championship teams having gained 295 yards and scoring three TDs over the last two weeks. With 48 touches to Giovanni's Bernard's 31 over the last two weeks, the rookie clearly has seized the lead role in the Cincy backfield and will be a bona fide RB1 going forward into next season in the Bengals' run-heavy offense.

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill will be the starting running back over RB Giovani Bernard for the team's Week 15 game against the Cleveland Browns. The Bengals have used a tandem approach with Hill and Bernard otherwise, with the two backs often alternating series. Bernard's snap counts have been near equal to Hill's in the last three weeks after returning from injury. Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson favors a one-back system. 'I'm used to having one guy kind of dominate some carries because, in order for backs to be really good, they've got to get lathered up to play,' Jackson said. 'You've got to get a feel for the game.'

    Huddle Up: Great news for Hill owners, but on the flip side, it sounds like anything but for the Bernard crowd, and it might be time for the latter group to seriously weigh its other starting options Sunday.

  • Posted: 12/2/2014 12:05am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill criticized the team's game plan against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 13, and offensive coordinator Hue Jackson responded by saying Hill needs to block better and break more tackles.

    Huddle Up: Not the wisest of moves by the rookie, and his fantasy owners can only hopes it doesn't lead to a short-term reduction in PT, especially with fellow back Giovanni Bernard getting healthier.
