Bengals | Tyler Eifert to have ankle surgery

Tue, 24 May 2016 10:43:36 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) will undergo a "minimal procedure" on his left ankle soon, and he is expected to need three months to recover, according to multiple sources. Eifert initially injured the ankle in the Pro Bowl and initial estimates for his recovery were promising, but his ankle hasn't responded since.

Fantasy Tip: Even though the surgery isn't complicated, this injury could affect Eifert's availability for the regular season opener, and he could be slow out of the gates whenever he returns. Depending on how quickly he recovers and gets on the field, his status as a TE1 will suffer. Cincy's receiving depth took a hit in the offseason when Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones departed in free agency, so A.J. Green could see even more targets but also more double teams. Brandon LaFell and Brandon Tate could be relied on more to open the year, as well as Giovani Bernard in a pass-catching role out of the backfield.

Bengals | Jeremy Hill hoping to up efficiency

Sat, 21 May 2016 21:18:46 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill's yards per carry dropped from 5.1 as a rookie to 3.6 last season, and he was missing running lanes that he hit quickly in his rookie year.

Fantasy Tip: His status as the goal-line back should ensure that he is at least a serviceable RB3, and he could easily finish as a RB2 if he returns to form.

Bengals | Tyler Boyd likely to open season in slot

Sat, 21 May 2016 13:06:17 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd will get chance to earn immediate playing time, according to new offensive coordinator Ken Zampese. "He struck me as a guy that can play slot early, and learn the outside spot and be productive out there as we go. He's played a lot of slot. He's very familiar with where the bodies are coming from down in there. And he's got good vision, football IQ and instincts to avoid and get up field," Zampese said.

Fantasy Tip: It should be probably be considered a disappointment if all Boyd does this season is serve as the primary slot receiver. With only Brandon LaFell serving as legitimate competition, the second-round rookie from Pittsburgh should be a regular starter in Cincy by midseason. Boyd won't threaten the targets of A.J. Green or Tyler Eifert, but he should be considered the favorite to inherit the numbers left behind by Marvin Jones.

Bengals | Andy Dalton to boost Tyler Boyd's game?

Thu, 19 May 2016 19:16:45 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd said he believes playing with QB Andy Dalton will help him elevate his performance. "With him throwing me to open space, making me catch it away from defenders, making it a lot easier for me I feel like it'll just take my game to a whole other level than what I think it's already at," Boyd said. "It'll completely change me."

Fantasy Tip: Boyd will be asked to play a big role as a rookie, and he is a solid option to target in the final rounds of standard drafts. In rookie drafts, he is worth considering in the first round.

Bengals | Tyler Boyd learning slot position

Thu, 19 May 2016 18:20:17 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd said he knows the team views him as a slot receiver, and wide receivers coach James Urban believes Boyd has the instincts to learn the slot position quickly.

Fantasy Tip: Boyd will be given every opportunity to have a sizeable role in the offense after the Bengals lost two receivers in free agency, and he should be a popular target in the later rounds of drafts.

Bengals | Jeremy Hill motivated

Tue, 17 May 2016 16:49:09 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill is using his costly playoff fumble from last season to motivate himself this offseason. "If anything [the fumble] motivated me as a player and will continue to help me the rest of my career," Hill said. Hill added that he's embracing his mistake and is waiting for his opportunity to overcome it.

Fantasy Tip: Hill has fumbled eight times in his first two seasons in the NFL, but he has also rushed for 20 touchdowns in those first two years. He'll continue to split time with Giovani Bernard, but he's an RB2 option in standard leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Boyd should have a solid role in the passing game in 2016 since the Bengals lost two receivers in free agency. Boyd could be a late-round pick in deeper leagues and should be valuable in keeper leagues.
