Fantasy Tip: Sharing the backfield with Jeremy Hill caps Bernard's upside, but his ability as a pass-catcher makes Bernard a viable RB3 in PPR formats.

Fantasy Tip: The initial news is encouraging, and as long as the knee issue is indeed minor, Green is a reliable WR1 in all formats.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert only just started jogging, so that estimate sounds about right pertaining to when the former Notre Dame product will be back on the field. With Eifert still out and Tyler Kroft sidelined for about a month, second-year tight end C.J. Uzomah will get a brief opportunity to step up and could be a decent placeholder.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green said there is "no way" he is missing the birth of his first child, and he would miss a regular season game if it comes to that. His first child is due in about a month.
Fantasy Tip: That's a perfectly understandable reason to sit out a game, and at least he's giving his owners fair warning a month in advance. That projects to about Week 3, so owners who still have to draft should take that into account, as well as Cincinnati's bye week in Week 9. Nonetheless, Green is still a valid WR1 option and should continue to be treated as such.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (hand) has yet to play in a preseason game due to a hand injury. He and rookie WR Tyler Boyd are considered the top two candidates to start opposite WR A.J. Green. LaFell is likely to play in the preseason game Sunday, Aug. 28, against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Fantasy Tip: LaFell is a veteran receiver who is worth using as a WR4 or flex fantasy play even if he is able to win the starting job opposite Grene. He posted 37 catches for 515 yards with no touchdowns last season in New England, so he isn't spectacular even in a prominent role.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) said he'll try to jog for the first time Monday, Aug. 22. Eifert said he has been running on a treadmill in the pool, and his ankle feels good. He has been lifting and receiving multiple treatments per day without setbacks.
Fantasy Tip: Eifert is one of the top tight ends in fantasy despite his potential to miss a game or two. He could come at a discount in drafts because of the injury.

Fantasy Tip: The hand injury isn't as serious as originally thought, but he could be good to go for the regular season opener. Tyler Boyd has looked impressive, though, and could compete with LaFell for the No. 2 wide receiver position.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd is turning heads this preseason and has begun to separate himself from the pack behind WR A.J. Green. Boyd had two catches for 38 yards and a touchdown in the second preseason game. "(He) does an awesome job of being in the right place, knowing what to do and how to do it and you can't say enough good things about T.B.," QB A.J. McCarron said. "If I have anything to say he's always all ears and doesn't question it. He's awesome, can't say enough good things about him."
Fantasy Tip: Boyd has a good chance to make his presence felt in fantasy with Brandon LaFell's status iffy with a torn ligament in his hand. That could force Boyd into the second spot on the depth chart. Boyd is one of the tricks to have up your sleeve later in drafts in the WR4 territory.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries and offseason departures have Boyd primed for a big role in Cincinnati's offense. Grab him as a midrange WR4.
