Fantasy Tip: 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.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell will continue to be a starting receiver even though he has not posted great numbers this season. He will receive some targets in the passing game but should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

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.
Fantasy Tip: 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.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell did not see his stats improve in Week 12 despite A.J. Green being sidelined. He has not posted more than 38 yards in the last four games and probably should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

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.
Fantasy Tip: 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.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead averaged nearly six yards per carry and picked up the slack when Jeremy Hill exited with ankle issues. With Giovani Bernard out due to a torn ACL, Burkhead could see more touches moving forward. The fact he gained nearly 30 yards on so few carries against Baltimore is encouraging.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.
