  Bengals | Tyler Wilson sits    Fri Aug 22, 03:39 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Tyler Wilson (head) did not participate in practice Friday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: Wilson is only a camp arm for the team. This head injury is not going to help his already small chances of making the final roster.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill may go with ones    Fri Aug 22, 10:29 AM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill could see some carries with the first-team offense in the third preseason game Sunday, Aug. 24.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on the rookie from LSU. He runs with a nice blend of power and agility. Hill also has deceptive speed, and he can break off big runs on unsuspecting defenses. Gio Bernard is the lead back in Cincy, but Hill could get about 125 carries (and some goal-line work) in 2014.

  Bengals | Tyler Wilson not practicing    Thu Aug 21, 01:25 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Tyler Wilson (head) is not participating in practice Thursday, Aug. 21.

Footballguys view: Buried way back on the depth chart, it really doesn't matter as Wilson was a long shot to make the final roster even before the injury.

  Bengals | Vontaze Burfict agrees to extension    Wed Aug 20, 05:24 PM

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict agreed to a multi-year contract extension Wednesday, Aug. 20. Terms of the new deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Burfict had maybe the worst pre-draft season in the last 10 years, only to end up being one of the very best players in his draft class. Many analysts were pronouncing him DOA in the NFL after his fall from the heights of draft projections in the first round, but Burfict has turned the experience into a massive positive.

Footballguys view: Hill tweeted out that he was fine, although we should wait until we see confirmation before closing the book on letting this affect his outlook.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton perfect in preseason game    Sat Aug 16, 11:03 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton went 8-for-8 on pass attempts during the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16, finishing with 144 yards and a touchdown.

Footballguys view: Dalton was hyperefficient in the more balanced Hue Jackson offense. He won't be a top five fantasy QB again, but just like last year, he could be an excellent addition to a streaming approach at QB if you time his good matchups.

  Bengals | Two leave with injuries    Sat Aug 16, 09:54 PM

Cincinnati Bengals LB J.K. Schaffer (head) and RB Rex Burkhead (knee) left the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug 16, with injuries.

Footballguys view: UDFA James Wilder Jr. saw two of the young backs ahead of him on the depth chart go down last night. One of he and Benjarvus Green-Ellis could make this team yet. We'll be monitoring this situation as injury news comes out this week.

  Bengals | Tyler Wilson gets reps in practice    Tue Aug 12, 07:56 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Tyler Wilson took snaps during practice Tuesday, Aug. 12, and he said he expects to play in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16, against the New York Jets.

Footballguys view: Wilson has a lot of moxie, and he's fearless in the pocket. However, his arm strength is not the best and he makes a lot of careless decisions with the football. He's a longshot to make the roster, having already spent time with three different teams in two years.

  Bengals | Marvin Jones could return by Week 5    Tue Aug 12, 02:40 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals believe WR Marvin Jones (foot) will miss the first three games of the regular season and return after the team's bye in Week 5.

Footballguys view: We'll see if the Bengals are right here. The Bengals are going to have a different looking passing game this year under new OC Hue Jackson. Frankly, they're going to pass less, so the WR2 in Cincy is not that exciting for fantasy owners. Keep Jones on your waiver wire speed dial.

  Bengals | Mohamed Sanu a multi-use weapon    Tue Aug 12, 11:36 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu has been impressive this preseason, and he can be used as a receiver, rusher or even occasional quarterback. Sanu has picked up the slack in the passing game in the absence of WR Marvin Jones (foot).

Footballguys view: Sanu might have temporary value in deeper leagues while Jones is out, and he can certainly increase his profile in dynasty leagues during his stint with the starters, but he's probably still not worth drafting in typical leagues.

  Bengals | Marvin Jones expected to miss at least 6 weeks    Mon Aug 11, 06:54 PM

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (foot) is expected to be sidelined for at least six weeks because of his broken left foot, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Six weeks seems a bit optimistic for a timetable. Hakeem Nicks had a screw inserted in his 5th metatarsal break in his right foot in the 2012 offseason, and the timetable was 12 weeks. Don't expect Jones to be back any time soon.

  Bengals | Sign Tyler Wilson    Sat Aug 9, 01:43 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals signed free-agent QB Tyler Wilson (Titans) Saturday, Aug. 9, to an undisclosed deal.

  Bengals | Darqueze Dennard receives praise    Thu Aug 7, 05:24 PM

Cincinnati Bengals CB Darqueze Dennard has been impressive so far in his rookie offseason, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Teammate CB Terence Newman said the sky is the limit for the rookie if he continues on the path he's been on.

Footballguys view: The Bengals are hoping Dennard can contribute immediately and so far it looks as if he could. It would be a big boost for a defense which lost its defensive coordinator and one of its best players in Michael Johnson.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill could see solid work    Thu Aug 7, 08:11 AM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill will see 10 to 15 carries a game in the opinion of The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner Jr. Dehner doesn't believe RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis has a chance to beat out Hill for the short-yardage role.

Footballguys view: We've long thought "Law Firm" would find itself facing an injunction, so this wouldn't shock us in the least. Right now Hill is rated as a RB4 while Green-Ellis barely rates. Unless he's traded that will stay the case but Hill's ADP looks like it's about to rise.

  Bengals | OC has been happy with Andy Dalton    Mon Aug 4, 06:06 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton has been impressive over the last few days of practice and is getting the ball out of his hands quickly, according to offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. 'I've been impressed with him since I've gotten to be the coordinator, but I've been really impressed with him over the last couple of days, because I think he's really starting to buy in to the urgency, getting the ball out of his hands and making great decisions. That was a great throwaway when we were backed up. There were times in the past the ball might have gone someplace else.'

Footballguys view: Dalton can put up stats in the regular season. He needs to get better in the postseason. Dalton has an 0-3 record in the playoffs so far during his pro career. We'll see if he can turn things around if the Bengals make it to the playoffs again this year.

  Bengals | Several players activated    Mon Aug 4, 02:32 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals activated WR Marvin Jones (ankle), TE Jermaine Gresham (hernia), DT Zach Minter (back), OT Andrew Whitworth (calf) and WR Ryan Whalen (hamstring) Monday, Aug. 4. Jones was listed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list while the other four were listed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: This is a sigh of relief for Jones owners, and a bit of bummer for Tyler Eifert owners. Jones was battling an ankle injury from a passing camp held before camp, so any longer extension of his absence would have been troubling. Gresham's status has been a bit of an unknown, so the chances of Eifert having a big role were going up with every missed day,

  Bengals | Andy Dalton contract update     Mon Aug 4, 01:56 PM

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton signed a six-year contract extension worth $96 million, but the deal could be worth as much as $115 million with incentives, according to a source. Dalton is guaranteed to receive $17 million in the next three days.

Footballguys view: The new style of contract for quarterbacks is basically something approaching franchise tag money on an annual basis, but with a recurring team option that allows them to get off scot-free any time they want to. From the sounds of the numbers, Dalton's contract will be very similar to Kaepernick's.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton signs extension    Mon Aug 4, 10:19 AM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton has agreed to a six-year, $115 million extension with the team. The league hasn't received the paperwork for the deal yet, but it is expected to be finalized Monday, Aug. 4.

Footballguys view: We'll have to wait to see how the contract is actually structured before getting too worked up about the contract total. Dalton now has an annual average salary of $19.1 million which ranks seventh for all quarterbacks. When more details about the contract come out, we think Dalton's contract will be structured similarly to what Colin Kaepernick received from the 49ers earlier this year. This is probably (wisely) a pay-as-you-go contract for Dalton.

  Bengals | Three injured players listed as starters    Sat Aug 2, 11:32 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (ankle), OT Andrew Whitworth (calf) and DT Geno Atkins (knee) are listed as starters on the team's depth chart even though they have not participated in practice during training camp.

Footballguys view: All three are important for what the Bengals want to do this year. Fantasy owners love the upside of Marvin Jones, but they need to realize the offense will have a different (run-heavy) look under new OC Hue Jackson. This new direction of the offense is going to keep the fantasy numbers low for Jones.
