• Jeremy Hill - RB
    Posted 12/4/16 8:31pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill rushed 23 times for just 33 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He also had two grabs for 12 yards on three targets.

    Huddle Up: Hill was outrushed by Rex Burkhead, as the starter's longest rush was just seven yards. Still, he was able to salvage the stat line with the touchdown. He will have much better results in Week 14 against a poor Cleveland Browns rush defense.

  • Andy Dalton - QB
    Posted 12/4/16 8:30pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Andy Dalton completed 23 of his 31 pass attempts for 332 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 13 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He also rushed twice for nine yards.

    Huddle Up: Dalton fared pretty well against a good pass defense, especially considering he continues to operate the offense without his biggest weapon A.J. Green. He should continue his solid play in Week 14 against a poor Cleveland Browns pass defense, assuming weather isn't a factor.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE
    Posted 12/4/16 8:29pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert posted two catches for 25 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He was targeted just two times.

    Huddle Up: The Eagles do not give up a lot to opposing tight ends, so the fact he found the end zone for his fantasy owners is impressive. He will look for an even bigger line in a much more favorable matchup on the road against the Cleveland Browns in Week 14.

  • Brandon LaFell - WR
    Posted 12/4/16 8:29pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell posted five receptions for 95 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He was targeted a team-high seven times.

    Huddle Up: LaFell just missed out on a 100-yard day, but looked solid as the team's No. 1 receiver with A.J. Green still on the shelf. He remains a decent WR3 heading into Week 14.

  • Cody Core - WR
    Posted 12/4/16 8:28pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Cody Core recorded his first two NFL receptions in the Week 13 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, finishing with two grabs for 58 yards.

    Huddle Up: Core could get a look down the stretch, but he is not quite worth adding in fantasy leagues unless he can replicate and/or improve on these numbers for at least one more game.

  • A.J. Green - WR
    Posted 12/2/16 8:20am ET

    Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) said he suffered a Grade 2 hamstring tear, and he's working to get back this season. It may not be until Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Recent reports offered some hope that he could return next week, but this report puts serious doubt on his availability for the fantasy playoffs. If you have the roster space, you have to stash him until something official occurs.

  • A.J. Green - WR
    Posted 12/1/16 10:03am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) is making expected progress in his recovery from his hamstring injury but will not be able to play in Week 13, according to sources. Green may have a chance to play in Week 14, in the opinion of ESPN's Bob Holtzman.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check on Green's practice participation next week to see if he has a chance to play in Week 14. Green could be limited when he returns but would still help owners during the playoffs.

  • A.J. Green - WR
    Posted 11/28/16 12:47pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) is unlikely to play in Week 13 against the Philadelphia Eagles, but head coach Marvin Lewis use the term 'partly cloudy' when referring to his receiver's likely status.

    Huddle Up: Beat writer Paul Dehner translated the comment as 'not happening,' which is exactly how fantasy owners should proceed. Tyler Eifert should see another heavy dose of targets, while rookie Tyler Boyd should be a serviceable WR3 in PPR leagues. Brandon LaFell should remain off the radar in most leagues.

  • Jeremy Hill - RB
    Posted 11/27/16 11:08am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in Week 12 but is expected to return.

    Huddle Up: Owners should monitor the situation to see if Hill returns to the game and if he is limited by the injury. He will receive most of the work at running back moving forward with Giovani Bernard out and should be a No. 2 running back if healthy.

  • Andy Dalton - QB
    Posted 11/27/16 1:51pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton was 26-of-48 for 283 yards Sunday, Nov. 27, in a 19-12 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Dalton fumbled the ball three times and lost two.

    Huddle Up: Dalton is a low QB1 but plays better as a QB2. He went over 3,000 yards in this game and has 12 touchdowns and just six interceptions. Dalton is the type of QB that gets the job done without too much flash or pizzazz.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE
    Posted 11/27/16 2:04pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert was targeted 11 times by QB Andy Dalton and caught five passes for 68 yards and a touchdown in a 19-12 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: Given the fact Baltimore had the league's second-rated defense, Eifert's output came as a bit of a surprise. The Ravens are known for shutting down top targets, and Cincinnati was without top players like A.J. Green and Giovani Bernard. This should cement Eifert as a surefire TE1.

  • A.J. Green - WR
    Posted 11/25/16 7:16pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd tied season highs with six catches on eight targets in Week 11, with all of his catches and targets coming after WR A.J. Green (hamstring) exited the game.

    Huddle Up: Boyd should be one of the biggest beneficiaries of Green's injury. He is worth picking up in most formats, but he is a risky flex play in Week 12 against a solid Baltimore defense.

  • Brandon LaFell - WR
    Posted 11/24/16 7:16pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) returned to practice and was a full participant Thursday, Nov. 24.

    Huddle Up: LaFell should see an uptick in targets in Week 12 with A.J. Green likely out, but he is a shot-in-the-dark play in DFS games.

  • Andy Dalton - QB
    Posted 11/24/16 7:12pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

    Huddle Up: Dalton should suit up in Week 12, but he is a QB2 in Week 12 with his top target, A.J. Green, expected to be sidelined.

  • Brandon LaFell - WR
    Posted 11/23/16 1:37pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check on LaFell's status later in the week to see if he is in danger of missing Week 12. He should receive more targets with A.J. Green sidelined but has been held to 47 yards in the last three games. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues if he plays, but owners in most leagues should be able to find better options.

  • Andy Dalton - QB
    Posted 11/23/16 1:40pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (shoulder) was limited during practicr Wednesday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Dalton likely will be able to play against the Baltimore Ravens this week but will be without A.J. Green and Giovani Bernard. Dalton has posted decent numbers this season but should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most leagues and should not be started.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 11/22/16 12:09pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 22. Bernard suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: No surprise here. This will be Jeremy Hill's backfield now, but Rex Burkhead should see a larger role, particularly in the passing game. Even with Hill being featured now, though, he draws a really tough test in the Baltimore Ravens this week. Expecting a breakout performance as the featured back right away would be naïve.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE
    Posted 11/22/16 11:58am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert was double covered more often than usual in the Bengals' Week 11 loss to the Buffalo Bills. The Bills could afford to send more help against Eifert with WR A.J. Green (hamstring) exiting the game early. Eifert can expect to see more of the same in Week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens with Green sidelined.

    Huddle Up: The Ravens are already one of the best defenses against tight ends, but Eifert will be in for an extra doozy with Green out. He's still in TE1 territory as he should see more volume, but don't get your hopes too high for Eifert's Week 12 output.

  • A.J. Green - WR
    Posted 11/21/16 12:39pm ET

    Updating previous stories, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) has only been ruled out Week 12 versus the Baltimore Ravens. Head coach Marvin Lewis would only confirm Green has a 'strained' hamstring Monday, Nov. 21, and believes the receiver will return this season.

    Huddle Up: Monday's MRI must have revealed much better news than expected, since initial reports had the hamstring being torn and Green likely out for the season. This means owners need to hold on to Green until we receive a more definitive diagnosis, but even a slight tear figures to keep him out multiple weeks. Tyler Boyd figures to take over for Green while he is recovering, and the rookie is worthy of an add in deeper leagues while owners wait for more news on Green.

  • A.J. Green - WR
    Posted 11/20/16 10:09am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE A.J. Green (hamstring) was carted off the field after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 11. He is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see the severity of the injury. Green is one of the top receiver in the NFL and in fantasy leagues, so it would be a big blow if he misses multiple weeks.

  • A.J. Green - WR
    Posted 11/20/16 10:38am ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) will not be able to return to the team's Week 11 game because of a hamstring injury.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to look for an update on Green's status in the next day or two. Tyler Eifert, Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd would all receive extra targets if Green misses an extended period of time. Eifert is a No. 1 tight end in all leagues, while LaFell and Boyd could be flex option in deeper leagues.

  • A.J. Green - WR
    Posted 11/20/16 1:55pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) has a tear in his hamstring and will undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Green probably will miss multiple weeks and could miss the rest of the 2016 season, so owners should keep an eye on a possible timetable. Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd should be more involved in the passing game but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Andy Dalton - QB
    Posted 11/20/16 2:49pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton went 24-for-43 for 207 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Buffalo Bills in Week 11. He also rushed for 10 yards and one touchdown on four carries.

    Huddle Up: Dalton has been held to under 210 yards in each of the last two games and has three touchdowns and four interceptions in the last three games. Dalton will be facing a solid Baltimore Ravens defense in Week 12 and probably should be avoided since A.J. Green is sidelined.

  • Tyler Boyd - WR
    Posted 11/20/16 3:06pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd caught six passes for 54 yards and one touchdown against the Buffalo Bills in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Boyd may have a bigger role in the passing game moving forward with A.J. Green sidelined with a hamstring injury. Owners should consider adding Boyd if he is available in their leagues. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 11/20/16 3:01pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed for 21 yards on seven carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 11. He also caught five passes for 40 yards in the game.

    Huddle Up: Bernard has received a decent amount of touches over the past few weeks but has not posted great numbers. He will continue to be involved in the running and passing game and can be a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

  • Jeremy Hill - RB
    Posted 11/20/16 2:56pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill rushed for 62 yards on 16 carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Hill saw his three-game touchdown streak snapped against the Bills and has been held to under 75 yards in four of the last six games. Hill will continue to receive a majority of the carries in the running game and can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option in leagues.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE
    Posted 11/20/16 3:10pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert caught three passes for 37 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Eifert should see more targets moving forward with Green expected to miss time because of a hamstring injury. Eifert has played well since returning from his offseason surgery and should be considered as a No. 1 tight end against most opponents.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 11/20/16 8:58pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the Week 11 game against the Buffalo Bills, a source said Sunday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: With Bernard done for the season it will be Jeremy Hill handling the majority of the backfield touches down the stretch. Rex Burkhead might benefit from a few extra touches, while Tyler Eifert could picked up a few more targets in the pass game as a result.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE
    Posted 11/18/16 2:51pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has made a big impact since returning from his offseason ankle injury and will continue to be a focal point in the passing game. He should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Andy Dalton - QB
    Posted 11/18/16 2:41pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Dalton has thrown for at least 250 yards in five of the last six games and has at least one touchdown in all but one game this season. He will be facing a solid Buffalo Bills defense in Week 11 but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues or a bye week replacement.
