  Bengals | A.J. Green has Grade 2 tear    Fri Dec 2, 11:20 AM

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) said he suffered a Grade 2 hamstring tear, and he's working to get back this season. It may not be until Week 17.

Footballguys view: Holding onto Green is a nice idea for hope, but if you are in a pinch, it's not crazy to drop him. He is unlikely to play next week and it sounds like Week 15 is a stretch. If Week 16 if his first game back, we won't recommend trusting Green in your championship lineup.

  Bengals | Brandon LaFell practices in full    Thu Dec 1, 02:37 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Footballguys view: Nobody has really stepped up in the absence of AJ Green and LaFell isn't the answer either. Philadelphia has a decent defense and secondary, which will make LaFell a WR6 and no more.

  Bengals | A.J. Green to miss Week 13    Thu Dec 1, 01:03 PM

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.

Footballguys view: The Bengals have a decent matchup with Philadelphia, but without Green the passing offense is lackluster. Tyler Boyd is the best of the remaining bunch and only a WR5 for all that.

  Bengals | A.J. Green uncertain for Week 13    Mon Nov 28, 03:47 PM

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.

Footballguys view: It's nice to know that Lewis went "Brick Tamland" on us. Keep the tridents away from him. In all seriousness, the Bengals superstar WR is unlikely to play this week. His season may or may not be in jeopardy, but with the Bengals season mostly over there's really no need to rush Green back into action.

  Bengals | Mike Nugent safe for now    Mon Nov 28, 03:03 PM

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert targeted 11 times    Sun Nov 27, 05:04 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert was targeted 11 times by QB Andy Dalton and caught five passes for 68 yards and a touchdown in a 19-12 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: Eifert was quiet in the first half, but he came on to put up one of the better tight end lines in Week 12. He is going to get more attention and more targets with AJ Green out. Next week brings an Eagles defense that has been tough on tight ends this year.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton fumbles in loss    Sun Nov 27, 04:51 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton was 26-of-48 for 283 yards Sunday, Nov. 27, in a 19-12 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Dalton fumbled the ball three times and lost two.

Footballguys view: Dalton was able to have a solid day only because he threw 48 times. He was facing an uphill battle without AJ Green and Giovani Bernard and will again next week when the Eagles come to town.

  Bengals | Cedric Peerman activated    Sat Nov 26, 02:16 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Cedric Peerman (arm) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Nov. 26.

Footballguys view: With the injury to Gio Bernard, the Bengals had to make a move to get more depth at the RB position. Peerman is a fine all-purpose back who had the nickname of "Mr. Versatility" during his college days at Virginia. He'll compete with Rex Burkhead to be the backup RB behind starter Jeremy Hill.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd ready to step up?    Fri Nov 25, 10:16 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd tied season highs with six catches on eight targets in Week 11, with all of his catches and targets coming after WR A.J. Green (hamstring) exited the game.

Footballguys view: Boyd has what scouts call 'old man game'...and that's not a bad thing. He's not the biggest or the fastest, but Boyd has always been able to create separation in his routes. We trust him more than any other Bengals WR (because Brandon LaFell has a history of concentration problems), but fantasy owners shouldn't get too carried away here. He's a WR3/WR4 option against the Ravens in Week 12.

  Bengals | Brandon LaFell back at practice    Thu Nov 24, 10:16 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) returned to practice and was a full participant Thursday, Nov. 24.

Footballguys view: It will be interesting to see how the Bengals attack teams through the air without superstar WR A.J. Green. First up, a game against the Ravens...a team you can pick on with the pass. We've got LaFell as a WR4, and his inconsistent hands don't give us much faith in him even though his role could be larger than normal.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton up to speed    Thu Nov 24, 10:12 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

Footballguys view: That's awesome and everything....but Dalton is going to be without superstar WR A.J. Green for some time. That puts a huge damper on his fantasy potential. We've got him as a low-end QB2 this week. That means you're only considering him in two-QB leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Cedric Peerman (forearm) was designated their player to be activated from the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Nov. 23. CB William Jackson III (pectoral) is out for the season.

Footballguys view: The injury to Gio Bernard prompted the move to get Peerman back instead of Jackson. Peerman will compete with Rex Burkhead to work as a change-of-pace back behind Jeremy Hill.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard placed on IR    Tue Nov 22, 03:09 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 22. Bernard suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 11.

Footballguys view: The Bengals are short on weapons with Bernard on IR and superstar WR A.J. Green (hamstring) banged up. This injury to Bernard should lead to a larger role for Jeremy Hill. To take Bernard's spot, Rex Burkhead should get mixed in more as a receiver out of the backfield.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert facing double coverage    Tue Nov 22, 02:58 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert was double covered more often than usual in the Bengals' Week 11 loss to the Buffalo Bills. The Bills could afford to send more help against Eifert with WR A.J. Green (hamstring) exiting the game early.

Footballguys view: It's tough for Eifert to get open against bracket coverage. Eifert can expect to see more of the same in Week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens with Green sidelined.

  Bengals | Rex Burkhead to pick up slack    Tue Nov 22, 10:50 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR/RB Rex Burkhead will take RB Giovani Bernard's (knee) place on third downs and serve as a receiver, runner and blocker. He only has 38 regular-season touches from scrimmage with 19 carries for 70 yards and 19 catches for 167 yards in four seasons. However, the team has expressed confidence in him stepping up into Bernard's role.

Footballguys view: Burkhead is more than capable as a receiver, and he makes for a nice stash play in deep PPR leagues. He can catch passes out of the backfield, or Burkhead can be lined up outside (or in the slot) like a receiver. His versatility and willingness to run hard between the tackles make him an interesting weapon who will get more time with Bernard out.

  Bengals | Mike Nugent staying put    Tue Nov 22, 10:23 AM

  Bengals | A.J. Green could return this season?    Mon Nov 21, 03:39 PM

Updating previous stories, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) has only been ruled out Week 12 versus the Baltimore Ravens. Head coach Marvin Lewis would only confirm Green has a 'strained' hamstring Monday, Nov. 21, and believes the receiver will return this season.

Footballguys view: We always encourage proceeding with caution when it comes to injury reports. There are media who want to rush to Twitter in order to 'break' news, but it doesn't matter if it turns out to be false. The reports about Green missing the rest of the year may be exaggerated or flat out wrong. The team is considering him week to week with this hamstring injury.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard has torn ACL    Sun Nov 20, 11:58 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the Week 11 game against the Buffalo Bills, a source said Sunday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: A disastrous day for the Bengals on Sunday. Bernard finishes the year with 337 yards rushing on 91 carries (a career-low 3.7 YPC) and 39 receptions for 336 yards. Without Bernard, we should see Jeremy Hill get an even larger workload. Rex Burkhead could work as a change-of-pace back with Bernard out. Bengals RB Cedric Peerman (forearm) and CB William Jackson III (pectoral) are basically healthy, but head coach Marvin Lewis said the team is not ready to decide which player will be activated from the Reserve/Injured list. Peerman could mix into the backfield if he's their 'designated to return' player.
