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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Cincinnati Bengals DT DeShawn Williams put on 10 pounds of muscle thanks to an offseason training regiment, and he is hoping to secure a spot in the defensive line rotation. "He's in the interior of the situation," defensive line coach Jacob Burney said. "It gets heavy in there, with doubles and combos. Those few pounds will help him hang in there so to speak."
