Winston was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 23, while Dennard fully participated in practice. CB Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring), DT Pat Sims (heel), TE C.J. Uzomah (ribs) and WR James Wright (knee) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton is not a great option for owners in Week 3 because he is facing a tough Denver Broncos defense. Owners can bench him if they have better options to use.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert likely will miss at least one more game but should return in the near future. Owners may want to see him play in a game or two before using him in their starting lineups.

Fantasy Tip: The Bengals play the Thursday night game at home versus the Miami Dolphins in Week 4, so it is conceivable Eifert will get his partial game in on a short week, giving him a true full week of practice and recovery in hopes he can play a normal complement of snaps against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 5. Given the difficulty of that matchup, owners may want to wait until Week 6 to start him in fantasy.

Fantasy Tip: Tyler Kroft has just three catches for 35 yards as the tight end spot has been invisible from the passing attack. That'll change when Eifert returns, and he should remain stashed.

Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (ribs), OT Andrew Whitworth (non-injury) and OG Eric Winston (back) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21. CB Darqueze Dennard (hamstring), CB Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring), DT Pat Sims (heel) and WR James Wright (knee) were limited during practice.

Fantasy Tip: Green is expecting a baby in the near future, so he likely will not practice until the baby is delivered. Owners should keep an eye to make sure this does not affect Green's status for Week 3. He will be facing one of the best defenses in the NFL in the Denver Broncos but should still be a useful fantasy option.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert is working his way back from ankle surgery and may not be ready for Week 3, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Owners probably should avoid Eifert until they see him play in a game.

Fantasy Tip: Dalton should be fine for Week 3 but will be facing a tough Denver Broncos defense. Dalton could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues but could be benched if owners have better options.
Wed, 21 Sep 2016 08:46:37 -0700
Fantasy Tip: If Eifert returns this week, he'd have some rust to kick off, and there are better options to roll with in fantasy.

Fantasy Tip: Boyd stepped up in the town he played his college ball. He has the potential to be a fantasy stud working opposite A.J. Green. Treat him as a WR3 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Fantasy Tip: Green normally performs well against the rival Steelers, but he laid a big egg for his fantasy owners in this one. Despite a tough matchup in Week 3 against the Broncos he remains a must-start across the board in all formats.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard ran five times just 17 yards in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he more than made up for the shortcomings in the rush game with nine receptions for a game-high 100 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy Tip: Bernard is a fabulous fantasy option in most formats, especially in leagues which reward points per reception (PPR). He faces another difficult rush defense in Week 3 against the Broncos, but he remains a solid RB2 in PPR formats.
Sun, 18 Sep 2016 22:15:27 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hill has started out slow for fantasy owners and should be treated as a low-end RB2 in most formats. He has been outperformed by teammate Giovani Bernard thus far.
