Cincinnati Bengals news, rumors and injuries

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill is still the starting running back, according to offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. "Jeremy hasn't had the success that he had a year ago, and I think that's what everybody's looking for," Jackson said of his back who averaged 5.1 yards per carry last year. "But Jeremy's playing and playing well. Jeremy's still our starting tailback. Everybody has seen over the last couple games that (Giovani Bernard) has got more carries, more opportunities than Jeremy. Well, eventually that's going to flip.
Fantasy Tip: Hill ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) and Bernard ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) have a rough matchup against the Buffalo Bills this week. Bernard might have more upside due to his receiving ability, but the tandem doesn't have a lot of upside in the matchup on FantasyScore.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton led an impressive comeback effort in a win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 5, and offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said he has meshed well with the quarterback. "When we were down, he didn't blink. Last year, in a situation like that, he might've gone the other way. Sometimes, he did. This year, he has a different look in his eye. He demonstrates that killer instinct, and it took a lot of growth, leadership and hard work to get himself to that point." Dalton has 11 touchdowns and two interceptions, a 67.5 completion percentage and a 303.6 yards-per-game average through five games.
Fantasy Tip: Dalton's comeback effort against one of the better defenses in the league is extremely impressive and shows that he is certainly in the midst of a breakout season. Dalton has plenty of weapons in the aerial game and in the backfield and shouldn't slow down for his fantasy owners. He remains a strong daily play in Week 6 against Buffalo's shaky secondary.

Fantasy Tip: This was the second two-score game for Eifert ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) this season, and aside from a dud in Week 3, he has been one of the more reliable tight end options at FantasyScore this season.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) has struggled with efficiency all season, and Giovani Bernard ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) has been seeing more action as a result. Hill still has somevalue at FantasyScore because of his role as the goal-line back, but he is basically a touchdown-dependent play at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) logged seven more carries than Jeremy Hill ($6,800, 13.6% of cap), and he has outperformed Hill for much of the season. However, the backfield situation in Cincinnati can change on a weekly basis, making both players risky options at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Rawls ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) continues to shine in place of the injured Marshawn Lynch, and if Lynch misses any more time going forward, Rawls becomes a great value play at FantasyScore.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 30 of 43 passes for 331 yards with two touchdowns and an interception and had 18 rushing yards and a touchdown in a 27-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 5.
Fantasy Tip: The Bengals trailed 24-7, but Dalton ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) completed 13 of 15 passes in the fourth quarter and overtime to lead the comeback. His fast start seems legit, and he deserves weekly consideration at FantasyScore.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton has produced an NFL-high 20 passing plays of 20-plus yards this year. They face the Seattle Seahawks in Week 5. Seattle allowed 11 big passing completions in the first two games but have given up just three since SS Kam Chancellor returned from his holdout.
Fantasy Tip: Big plays will likely be hard to come by for both sides in this matchup in Week 5. Make sure to downgrade Dalton ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) and all of the Bengals offensive weapons a bit this weekend.

Cincinnati Bengals DE Wallace Gilberry (calf) and FS George Iloka (ankle) were limited during practice and are listed as questionable for the Week 5 game against the Seattle Seahawks. CB Adam Jones (groin) and FS Reggie Nelson (hamstring) fully participated in practice and are listed as probable.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) should see his normal workload in Week 5 but likely will continue to share time with Giovani Bernard. Hill will be facing a tough Seahawks defense but could still be a starting option for owners.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) is coming off a three-touchdown game against the Kansas City Chiefs last week, but his matchup with the Seattle Seahawks in Week 5 isn't the most favorable. Plus, he'll still be splitting touches with Giovani Bernard. Invest in Hill at your own risk on FantasyScore.

Cincinnati Bengals DR Wallace Gilberry (calf), CB Adam Jones (groin) and OT Andrew Whitworth (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 7. CB Leon Hall (non-injury), FS George Iloka (ankle) and FS Reggie Nelson (hamstring) were limited during practice.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Hill ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) is in danger of missing the Week 5 game against the Seattle Seahawks. He received only nine carries in the last game but was able to score three touchdowns during the game. Hill likely will continue to share time with Giovani Bernard but could still be a solid starting option.
