Cincinnati Bengals news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: Green is slowly but surely moving closer to being able to play in Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Paying $7,500 (15.0% of cap) at FantasyScore isn't crazy if Green is back in the starting lineup, since the Jags are one of the best matchups for opposing wideouts.

Cincinnati Bengals CB Darqueze Dennard (hamstring), LB Rey Maualuga (hamstring) and OG Kevin Zeitler (calf) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 30. DT Domata Peko (toe) and OT Andre Smith (knee) were limited, while LB Jayson DiManche (shoulder), DE Carlos Dunlap (illness), OG Mike Pollak (knee) and DT Brandon Thompson (knee) practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: If Bernard is not able to go, then Jeremy Hill would get most of the work in Week 9, and is a nice play in FantasyScore with a price of $3,700 (7.4% of cap). Check back as the week goes on to see if he is able to get any work in on the practice field.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip, shoulder) has a hip pointer and clavicle which is bothering him and he could miss the Week 9 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to beat writer Richard Skinner. The team has a quick turnaround with a game Thursday, Nov. 6, in Week 10.
Fantasy Tip: Check back on Bernard's status Friday when the official injury report comes out. If Bernard is sidelined, Jeremy Hill would be a slam-dunk play in FantasyScore at $3,700 (or 7.4 percent of the cap).

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Oct. 29. Green said he feels good, and he'll try to do more Thursday, Oct. 30. It looks more promising that he'll play in Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and if he does, he's unlikely to limit his number of snaps. Green did position-specific drills Wednesday and ran some routes, and he didn't favor his right big toe. However, he has been told to expect to play through some level of pain for the rest of the season. Green said trainers may tape up his foot a bit, but he isn't planning on wearing different shoes or wearing inserts for cushioning.
Fantasy Tip: Green's FantasyScore price ($7,500; 15.0% of cap) hasn't dropped a whole lot, but he's definitely worth considering for your lineup if he plays against the Jaguars.

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (knee) has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. CB Darqueze Dennard (hamstring), DE Carlos Dunlap (illness), LB Rey Maualuga (hamstring), DT Domata Peko (toe), OG Mike Pollak (knee), OT Andrew Whitworth (non-injury) and OG Kevin Zeitler (calf) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 29. CB Terence Newman (back) and OT Andre Smith (knee) were limited, while LB Jayson DiManche (shoulder) and DT Brandon Thompson (knee) practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: It does not look like Eifert is close to getting back on the field. Jermaine Gresham will continue to start at tight end for the Bengals but is not a great fantasy option.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (knee) underwent surgery Wednesday, Oct. 29, to remove a piece of cartilage that would have done more damage to his knee if not treated. Burfict likely will miss at least the team's next two games.

Fantasy Tip: Green appears to be on track to play in Week 9, but owners will need to see if he is able to practice the next few days before deciding on their lineup. Green probably would be a risky option on FantasyScore at $6,900 since he may not be 100 percent during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see if he is able to practice later in the week and has a chance to play in Week 9. Bernard has a price of $6,900 on FantasyScore and is a solid option if he plays since he produces in the running and passing game. Jeremy Hill would start if Bernard is not able to play and could be a good sleeper option at $3,700 on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Green has missed the last several games with his toe injury, and his status for Week 9 is uncertain. Green costs $7,500 on FantasyScore this week, but owners will need to watch his practice participation during the week to see if he has a chance to play.

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (knee), who has left all five games that he's played in this year, left the Week 8 game with a knee injury, but he returned in the second quarter and played the remainder of the contest. Burfict said he'll be fine to play in Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Greg Little was targeted five times in Week 8 in his second start since signing with the team, and head coach Marvin Lewis said he feels Little "has the ability to make plays" for the offense.
Fantasy Tip: With A.J. Green injured and Marvin Jones out for the year, Little has a chance to become a factor in Cincinnati's passing game thanks to his big-play speed. If Green remains sidelined in Week 9, Little could make a nice low-priced gamble at FantasyScore with the Bengals facing the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars.
