  Bengals | Cordy Glenn reinstated    Mon Oct 21, 03:53 PM

Cincinnati Bengals OT Cordy Glenn was activated to the 53-man roster Monday, Oct. 21, following a one-game suspension in Week 7. Glenn was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team following an outburst last week in which he reportedly asked for his release.

  Bengals | A.J. Green may have a shot at Week 8 return    Mon Oct 21, 03:18 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) will not be automatically ruled out for Week 8, although head coach Zac Taylor told reporters he won't play Green against the Los Angeles Rams unless he can practice in full.

Footballguys view: Green is getting closer to a return but there's no clear timetable...because there has never really been one. Many have speculated that Green won't return to the field until after the trade deadline on the 29th of October. We'll see if Green can actually get a full practice in this week. Stash him on your bench if he's out there on the waiver wire.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd targeted 14 times    Sun Oct 20, 06:04 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd posted five receptions for 55 yards on 14 targets in Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: Boyd mustered a reasonable PPR line late, but is a low ceiling WR3/Flex going forward with the Bengals season going down the drain.

  Bengals | Auden Tate targeted six times    Sun Oct 20, 05:54 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate posted three catches for 65 yards on six targets in Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: Tate is showing special body control and hands, which is allowing him to hang despite a lack of straight line speed or explosiveness. He'll be a starter for as long as AJ Green is out.

  Bengals | Alex Erickson breaks out for 137 yards    Sun Oct 20, 05:46 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Alex Erickson registered eight receptions on 14 targets for a career-high 137 yards in Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: Erickson was the whole pass offense for a good part of the game. He'll be a pickup in very deep leagues until AJ Green returns, but is only a desperation play against the Rams next week.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard totals six touches    Sun Oct 20, 05:43 PM

  Bengals | Joe Mixon bottled up in home loss    Sun Oct 20, 05:40 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon ran 10 times for just two yards in Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars while adding a two-yard touchdown on his only reception.

Footballguys view: Mixon and the Bengals running game is flatlining. A receiving touchdown salvaged something, but he is just a what the heck flex against the Rams next week.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton totals two touchdowns    Sun Oct 20, 05:38 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 22-of-43 passes for 276 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he had four runs for a team-best 33 yards and a score.

Footballguys view: Dalton put up an adequate fantasy line in yet another futile effort to come back from a big deficit. He might be benched eventually so the team can look at fourth round pick Ryan Finley and might wish he was benched if he starts vs. Aaron Donald and the Rams next week.

  Bengals | Samaje Perine back with Cincy    Fri Oct 18, 09:48 PM

Free-agent RB Samaje Perine (Bengals) passed through waivers and was re-signed by the Cincinnati Bengals and assigned to their practice squad Friday, Oct. 18.

Footballguys view: Perine is a big plodder who has never played up to the potential he showed in college. His dynasty stock is incredibly low.

  Bengals | A.J. Green to miss Week 7    Fri Oct 18, 03:27 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and has been ruled out for Week 7.

Footballguys view: He's not back...yet. Green doesn't have a contract with the Bengals past this season and there's no rush to get him out there. When he gets back to practice (he's got to be close, right?) then we'll get more excited about his availability.

Cincinnati Bengals OT Cordy Glenn (concussion) was cleared to return from a concussion that he suffered in the preseason Wednesday, Oct. 16, but the two sides have reportedly 'been at odds regarding the concussion, its symptoms, whether he's able to return, the need for second opinions, and how the player feels,' according to sources. At one point, the Bengals opted to fine Glenn $200,000 for conduct detrimental to the team.

  Bengals | A.J. Green still needs more time    Thu Oct 17, 01:16 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) will not practice again Thursday, Oct. 17, and told reporters he still has a 'little ways to go' before he can return to full action. One team beat reporter says he doesn't expect him to play in Week 7.

Footballguys view: It makes no sense for Green to return next week with the Bengals bye coming up in Week 9. He'll back in Week 10 at the earliest as it's clear the team should have put him on injured reserve at the beginning of the season.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) remained sidelined at practice Wednesday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: Green is on his way back and things are getting closer...we think. Bengals coach Zac Taylor needs to see Green at 100 percent before making a decision on his availability. We'll know more about his playing status on Friday.

Cincinnati Bengals CB William Jackson III (shoulder) is expected to miss 'a few weeks' due to a shoulder injury, according to a source.

  Bengals | A.J. Green in limbo for Week 7    Mon Oct 14, 03:32 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) continues to make progress from his preseason ankle injury, but head coach Zac Taylor offered only a 'we'll see' when asked about Green's potential availability for Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: It's been 'we'll see' with Green for quite some time. When he comes back, Green could get back to his WR1 ways rather quickly. His return would also boost the potential for QB Andy Dalton.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd limited to 10 yards    Sun Oct 13, 06:25 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd had three receptions for 10 yards on seven targets in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: Boyd had his first dud of the year in what was a good matchup on paper. He may dodge Jalen Ramsey next week but as long as the Bengals line is in shambles, Boyd is feeling like a dicey WR3/Flex only suitable to play in PPR leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate finished with five catches for 91 yards on 12 targets in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens, leading the team in receiving for the third time in the past four games.

Footballguys view: Tate was making catches in tight coverage and has proven that he belongs on an NFL field. He'll still be a starter when AJ Green returns and projects as a long term starter if the team lets Green walk in free agency this offseason.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed eight times for 10 yards in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens while adding two receptions for 29 yards on three targets.

Footballguys view: Mixon has been scratching out viable fantasy stat lines despite the decline of the Bengals offense, especially the offensive line. His fantasy teams will be uncertain about whether to start him next week against Jacksonville.
