  Bengals | Tyler Eifert may return in 2014    Fri Nov 21, 02:15 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow) has a chance to return at some point this season, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Footballguys view: The Bengals are at least leaving open that he could return, but this also means that there is still a chance, if not a good chance, that he won't play again this year. Jermaine Gresham will hang onto TEBC/streamer value in the meantime.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard probable    Fri Nov 21, 01:34 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip, clavicle) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is probable for Week 12.

Footballguys view: Bernard could get the lesser part of the backfield with Jeremy Hill playing well in his absence, but he's still a solid PPR play.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill forecasted for more    Fri Nov 21, 10:00 AM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill will be the leader in a 65-35 split of the carries with RB Giovani Bernard in Week 12, in the opinion of beat writer Paul Dehner Jr.

Footballguys view: Hill is definitely the better play of the two this week, although Bernard is still worth a look in PPR leagues.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (clavicle, hip) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: Bernard is still likely to split carries with Jeremy Hill and we like Hill just a bit better. That makes Bernard an RB3 to Hill's RB2.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard practicing    Thu Nov 20, 12:59 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (clavicle, hip) is participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: Bernard and Jeremy Hill should both have solid days, though Bernard's ceiling is a bit more capped. We see Bernard as an RB3, while Hill is a solid RB2. He's earned it in Bernard's absence.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill has earned more plays    Thu Nov 20, 01:05 AM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill is likely to get a bulk of the carries in Week 12 against the Houston Texans, according to beat writer Geoff Hobson, despite the return of RB Giovani Bernard (clavicle, hip). Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson indicated Wednesday, Nov. 19, that Bernard will be eased back into the process.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (clavicle, hip) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Cincinnati Bengals QB A.J. McCarron (shoulder) returned to practice Tuesday, Nov. 18, but he is still on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list. McCarron's 21-day window begins Tuesday where he can practice with the team without counting on the active roster. He can be activated at any point during that window.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard may practice    Mon Nov 17, 04:44 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) may be able to participate in practice this week, but head coach Marvin Lewis said the team will wait to see if he is able to return to the field.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to be cautiously optimistic here. Bernard is a hot fantasy commodity as a starter, but this hip injury has lingered a bit longer than some originally anticipated. Check back to see if Bernard can practice later in the week.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton steps up his game    Sun Nov 16, 06:09 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 16 of his 22 pass attempts for 220 yards and three touchdowns in Week 11 against the New Orleans Saints, posting a career-high passer rating of 143.9 in the process. He credited former Bengals QB Boomer Esiason for a conversation earlier in the week. 'He said, 'Go play your game',' Dalton said Sunday, Nov. 16. ''Get this thing going. Don't let that Thursday game mean anything. Get everyone going because we're talented'. It meant a lot to me. I'm glad he reached out. He's somebody I can talk to.'

Footballguys view: Dalton's swing was the biggest one-week spread in passer rating in NFL history. While it's good to see him regain form, the wide range of possible outcomes makes us queasy at the idea of plugging him in our lineups.

  Bengals | A.J. Green responds to challenge    Sun Nov 16, 06:08 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green was challenged by offensive coordinator Hue Jackson this week. He responded by posting six receptions for 127 yards and a touchdown. 'Coach Hue wanted me to get back to the old A.J. Be great. Dominate my man every play,' Green said Sunday, Nov. 16. 'Nobody has said that to me in a long time. I took that to heart. I came out there and worked my butt off last week and it showed today.'

Footballguys view: Green is back and he should be a massive addition for teams that survived his absence so they could have him give them a boost as they surge towards the playoffs. He'll be a WR1 next week against Houston.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) has been ruled out for the team's Week 11 game.

Footballguys view: Bernard's return date is unknown. You can't count on him in your lineup for the fantasy playoffs, but you can't drop him, either.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) is not practicing Friday, Nov. 14.

Footballguys view: Bernard will be out again this week. Jeremy Hill will start again at New Orleans. We're not quite sure when Bernard will return to the field, but there were a few signs this week that it will be soon. Next week the Bengals travel to Houston and there is a shot Bernard is back.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) is expected to miss Week 11 with a hip injury.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to watch this situation closely. Bernard's status is unclear not only for this week--but future weeks as well. Hopefully, Bernard owners were able to scoop up rookie Jeremy Hill on the waiver wire earlier this year.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) will not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 12, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert may miss rest of year    Fri Nov 7, 04:22 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow) could miss the rest of the season, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. 'I can't give you an update until he's close to being healthy,' Lewis said, before stating there is a chance Eifert misses the rest of the season. 'So he's on the mend, he's healing, he's doing things, and if he gets back and healthy, and he's gonna be able to contribute and not risk further injury, then he'll be back and out there."

Footballguys view: The Bengals are notoriously inaccurate in their injury updates, but this should be enough to keep everyone from carrying him in redraft leagues with hopes of him making significant contributions this season.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton lays an egg    Fri Nov 7, 09:52 AM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton's 30.3 completion percentage Thursday, Nov. 6, is the worst completion percentage in a game with at least 25 attempts in franchise history.

Footballguys view: Dalton has had some low moments in his career, but none lower in the regular season than this one. With the Saints up next in the Superdome, things aren't getting easier for Dalton in Week 11.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard out tonight    Thu Nov 6, 09:00 AM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) will not play in the Week 10 game Thursday, Nov. 6, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Footballguys view: It's Jeremy Hill time! Last week we saw him shred Jacksonville and while Cleveland is a better defense, we're still high on him, especially as the weather looks a little nasty. That means more running, and more Hill. He's one of our top five fantasy backs this week. In other words, start him in all formats.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (clavicle, hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 5, and is listed as doubtful for Week 10.

Footballguys view: He's not officially out....but he's out. The Bengals play on a short week against the Browns in Week 10, and it's best to rest Bernard. Rookie Jeremy Hill looked fantastic last week (over 150 yards rushing), and he should have a very strong day in Week 10.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard misses practice again    Tue Nov 4, 05:07 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip, shoulder) missed practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Nov. 4, and he's unlikely to play in Week 10 against the Cleveland Browns Thursday, Nov. 6.

Footballguys view: We're glad the team is likely to shut down Bernard once again this week. Rookie Jeremy Hill rushed for over 150 yards in Week 9, and he gives the team a fantastic starting option without Bernard.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) is unlikely to play in Week 10 Thursday, Nov. 6, in the opinion of beat writer Paul Dehner Jr.

Footballguys view: We're not shocked by this...if it actually ends up being the case. The Bengals are on a short week as they play on Thursday night against the Browns. With the performance of rookie RB Jeremy Hill (over 150 yards rushing) in Week 9, there's no need to rush Bernard back.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) has zero chance of losing his starting job after RB Jeremy Hill's big game in Week 9, according to beat writer Coley Harvey.

Footballguys view: Nobody expects Hill to take Bernard's job....the rookie is simply not as good as Bernard is. However, Hill is very talented, running with a blend of power and speed, so he could carve out a larger change-of-pace role when Bernard returns.
