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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Huddle Up: Makes sense for the team to handle Gio with kid gloves, and Hill has certainly demonstrated his ability to successfully handle a larger workload.
