  Bengals | Jeremy Hill dominant in run game    Sun Dec 14, 05:03 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill carried 25 times for 148 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 15 game against the Cleveland Browns. He also added a reception for four yards.

Footballguys view: Hill faces a tough Denver run defense next week, but he was faster and stronger than the Browns defense all day today. Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson love the power running game, so Hill will get every chance to get on track next week.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill has big first half    Sun Dec 14, 02:30 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill rushed for 103 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries in the first half of the team's Week 15 game.

Footballguys view: Hill has been making Browns miss and running through them with equal aplomb. Hill will have a tougher matchup against Denver on Monday night, but he will be impossible to bench as the Bengals newly minted feature back.

  Bengals | A.J. Green headed for a poor game?    Sat Dec 13, 09:10 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green has caught 12 passes on 30 targets for 81 yards and no touchdowns in his last three matchups with Cleveland Browns CB Joe Haden.

Footballguys view: Haden has been one of the best corners in the league this year, but you can't bench Green even in the face of these numbers.

  Bengals | Jermaine Gresham expected to play    Fri Dec 12, 07:15 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (toe) is fine and is expected to play in Week 15 against the Cleveland Browns despite being listed as questionable, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Even if Gresham suits up, the Bengals could come out with a heavy offensive line that includes OTs Eric Winston and Marshall Newhouse as extra blockers off the edge.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton has improved in last month    Fri Dec 12, 06:50 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton has improved in the last month ever since his terrible 2.0 passer rating against the Cleveland Browns five weeks ago. 'It's that everybody is on the same page,' head coach Marvin Lewis said. 'We have to get to the right spots, he has to deliver accurate balls, protections and routes have to match. When they don't match, things are going to be bad.' Dalton has rallied the team to a 3-1 record and his completion percentage hasn't been under 68 percent in the last four weeks. It's no surprise to offensive coordinator that Dalton's improved play has come as WR A.J. Green has returned to full health.

Footballguys view: There's good Dalton and bad Dalton. Sometimes we see both in the same game. He's trending the right direction now, but we still like him best as a QB2 for fantasy owners.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill the better second-half back    Thu Dec 11, 09:03 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill is averaging 4.8 yards per carry in the second half of games this year, and RB Giovani Bernard is averaging 2.8 yards per carry in the second half of games.

Footballguys view: Hill is poised to get 20+ carries in games that the Bengals control, but with road games at Pittsburgh and Cleveland left, and a home game against Denver, that might be difficult.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill to start in Week 15    Thu Dec 11, 02:44 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill will be the starting running back over RB Giovani Bernard for the team's Week 15 game against the Cleveland Browns. The Bengals have used a tandem approach with Hill and Bernard otherwise, with the two backs often alternating series. Bernard's snap counts have been near equal to Hill's in the last three weeks after returning from injury. Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson favors a one-back system. 'I'm used to having one guy kind of dominate some carries because, in order for backs to be really good, they've got to get lathered up to play,' Jackson said. 'You've got to get a feel for the game.'

Footballguys view: It's going to be a tough game for Cincinnati in Cleveland's house this weekend. They'll lean on Hill quite a bit but whether he gets the full load or not - and what that would look like - could be a whole other matter. We have him as a solid RB2 this weekend in either case, with some upside.

  Bengals | Vontaze Burfict may need surgery    Thu Dec 11, 11:08 AM

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (knee) may need to undergo more surgery on his knee and will make a decision in the next few days, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Lewis said he expects Burfict will be ready for the start of training camp next season.

Footballguys view: Losing Burfict was a huge blow to this defense and not in the least offset by the activation of quarterback AJ McCarron. That isn't much of a fair trade-off. The loss makes an inconsistent defense even less stable, and could be a good thing for the Cleveland Browns and Johnny Manziel this week.

  Bengals | Activate A.J. McCarron    Tue Dec 9, 03:19 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals activated QB A.J. McCarron (shoulder) off the Reserve/Non-Football injury list Tuesday, Dec. 9.

Footballguys view: McCarron is a game-managing quarterback with a little value in deep dynasty leagues. It's worth monitoring his progress as a pro to see if he can develop.

  Bengals | Vontaze Burfict placed on IR    Tue Dec 9, 03:19 PM

Cincinnati Bengals CB Vontaze Burfict (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 9.

Footballguys view: We haven't seen Burfict since Week 8. The Bengals rush defense has certainly struggled without him. Burfict himself was struggling through an injury-plagued third season. He had a knee operation in late October, and he should be near 100 percent healthy by the time training camp starts next year.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton fine after game    Sun Dec 7, 07:59 PM

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (chest) said Sunday, Dec. 7, that he was fine after the Week 14 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. 'Yeah, he hit me pretty square right in the chest. I was just trying to catch my breath,' Dalton said.

  Bengals | A.J. Green posts career high    Sun Dec 7, 07:40 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green posted 11 receptions for a career-high 224 yards in Week 14 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The yardage total was also the second most in franchise history. It was Green's 20th 100-yard game, and that's third-most in franchise history.

Footballguys view: Green outperformed all of the other first round wide receivers in Week 14. He'll draw Joe Haden next week, who is smarting after giving up a big day to TY Hilton today.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green caught seven passes for 104 yards in the first half of the team's Week 14 game.

Footballguys view: Andy Dalton has fallen back on his unstoppable number one target in the passing game just in time for the fantasy playoffs. The Steelers secondary has been a problem all year and Green is dominating against them today.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon Tate is expected to be the team's No. 3 wide receiver in Week 14, because WR James Wright (knee) is listed as doubtful.

Footballguys view: Even as the Bengals WR3, we're not expecting much from Tate. Even dynasty owners shouldn't have a lot of stock invested in Brandon Tate.
