Cincinnati Bengals LB Rey Maualuga (hamstring) was placed on the Non-Football Injury list Thursday, July 30.

Footballguys view: Maualuga is talented, but he gets banged up from time to time. The team will be cautious with him as he deals with this hamstring injury.

  Bengals | Cobi Hamilton waived    Thu Jul 30, 06:37 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Cobi Hamilton was waived Thursday, July 30.

Footballguys view: Hamilton made some plays in college at Arkansas, but he's not made an impact with the Bengals. We can't see him sticking on a roster even if some other team picks him up.

Free-agent WR Greg Little (Bengals) signed a one-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday, July 30. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Little comes back to the Bengals to give them wide receiver depth. He's no lock for the final roster.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert says he is healthy    Thu Jul 30, 03:14 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert said he is 100% healthy for the first time since the beginning of last offseason.

Footballguys view: Eifert has the upside to be a top-10 fantasy tight end. The Bengals are likely to use him as much as possible, and he could outperform his current ADP of TE16 (13.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bengals | Hope Vontaze Burfict can play in preseason    Wed Jul 29, 12:39 PM

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (knee) is currently on the Physically Unable to Perform list, but the team is hoping he can return to the field in time to play in the third preseason game so he can prepare for Week 1.

Footballguys view: That may be a bit optimistic as Burfict is trying to come back from microfracture surgery and neck problems. Burfict may not be ready at the start of the regular season, and he could end up on the PUP list at that time. That would force him to miss the first six weeks of the regular season.

  Bengals | Cedric Ogbuehi placed on NFI    Tue Jul 28, 05:47 PM

Cincinnati Bengals OT Cedric Ogbuehi (knee) was placed on the Non-Football Injury list Tuesday, July 28.

Footballguys view: Ogbuehi was selected in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft even though he was recovering from a knee injury he suffered last year at Texas A&M. There's a chance he supplants Andrew Whitworth as the team's left tackle when healthy.


  Bengals | James Wright waived    Tue Jul 28, 05:32 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR James Wright (knee) was waived with an injured designation Tuesday, July 28.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate that Wright is facing season-ending knee surgery. He tore his PCL late last year, but the injury went undisclosed.

  Bengals | Cincy discussing new deal with A.J. Green    Sun Jul 26, 10:17 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green is talking with the Bengals about a possible contract extension, according to sources. The team sees signing Green to an extension as their top priority.

Footballguys view: Green (just like Julio Jones) should get a contract similar to what both Demaryius Thomas and Dez Bryant received earlier this year. The Bengals need an explosive playmaker like Green on offense, and we can't imagine them letting him slip away on the open market.

  Bengals | Andrew Whitworth could lose job    Thu Jul 23, 09:47 PM

Cincinnati Bengals OT Andrew Whitworth could lose his starting job at some point this season if OT Cedric Ogbuehi (knee) returns to the field by midseason as expected.

Footballguys view: Ogbuehi is a talented player, and that's why the Bengals picked him in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft even though he was injured. He's a technically sound player who can mirror rushers on the outside. Ogbuehi is not a mauler, but he's athletic enough to be a sticky blocker on the move.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert ready for breakout?     Wed Jul 22, 03:18 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert could be primed for a breakout season, in the opinion of Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer.

Footballguys view: The Bengals have been waiting for Eifert to break out, and he's certainly a player fantasy owners should be watching. After missing most of last season, Eifert is looking to build off the numbers he had as a rookie in 2013. Right now, fantasy owners are picking up Eifert as a TE2 with TE1 upside. His current ADP is TE17 (13.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bengals | Marvin Jones feeling fine    Mon Jul 20, 10:07 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (foot) did not play in 2014 due to a foot injury that required surgery to remove bone chips. However, he said Monday, July 20, that the foot is a non-issue. 'We looked at it, got it fixed, and it's not there anymore,' Jones said. 'It was an unfortunate situation, but it's behind me.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners and Bengals fans are hoping that Jones can build off his 2013 season where he had over 700 receiving yards and caught 10 touchdowns. If healthy, Jones could outperform his current ADP of WR57 (13.03) in 12-team leagues.

  Bengals | Jermaine Gresham not an option for Cincy    Sat Jul 18, 12:19 PM

Free-agent TE Jermaine Gresham (Bengals) likely will not re-sign with the Cincinnati Bengals this offseason.

Footballguys view: Gresham is currently on the open market, but there should be a few teams interested in the veteran tight end. He's currently recovering from back surgery he had earlier this year. Once cleared, we expect some team to give him a shot. The Saints have reportedly been looking into adding Gresham for months. Stay tuned.

  Bengals | A.J. Green thanks Demaryius Thomas    Fri Jul 17, 09:36 PM

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas said during a press conference Friday, July 17, that Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green contacted him shortly after Thomas signed his new deal to thank him.

Footballguys view: In the near future, Green is going to get a contract similar to what Thomas (and Dez Bryant) received earlier this week. With Green looking at around $45 million guaranteed, it's worth a call to say "thanks" to Demaryius.

  Bengals | A.J. Green will play without deal    Tue Jul 14, 04:18 PM

Updating a previous post, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green has decided to play the 2015 season without a new contract.

Footballguys view: Green is playing on the fifth-year option of his rookie deal, and he's set to make just over $10 million in 2015. The Bengals could use the franchise tag on Green next offseason if they can't sign him to a new long-term deal.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill urged to embrace hype    Sat Jul 11, 09:18 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill has been told to embrace the hype surrounding him in 2015 by offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. 'To me, if a guy wants to be great, he's got to relish that,' Jackson said. 'He's got to want that and then go exceed it. That would be my challenge to (Hill). I expect him to exceed whatever the expectation is about him.'

Footballguys view: Hill is going to be an RB1 when the Bengals control a game, but he might not even be a low RB2 when they don't. He's going at a low RB1 price in the second round, which means taking him is a bet on the Bengals to have a good season unless you are overwhelming by Hill's talent.

  Bengals | A.J. Green not concerned about contract    Thu Jul 9, 12:20 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green said he is not worried that he is entering the final year of his contract and is willing to play out the season. 'I don't get into all the 'I need a contract' stuff,'' Green said. 'I'm not here for money. I'm not broke. So I'm fine. I can wait until the end of the year to get a contract, but I know that time is coming.'

Footballguys view: Green might not have quite the production of his peers because of Andy Dalton, an offense that prefers to run if they control the game, and the return of Tyler Eifert and Marvin Jones. The Bengals have been very fiscally disciplined, but they also generally have retained and taken care of their best players. Green should get one of the top WR contracts in the league next year.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill wants to improve strength    Fri Jul 3, 07:54 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill said he wanted to build up the strength in his legs this offseason in hopes of improving his acceleration into the second level of opposing defenses. Hill said he believes he was tackled by the first defender too often last season.

Footballguys view: Hill was able to find his way through the line with strong lateral agility for such a big back and he could pull away if he got a lane. The Bengals have some key pieces of the passing game back this year, which could open up things even more for him. Hill will still split with Giovani Bernard and possibly not get feature back touches any time the Bengals don't control the game, so he's on the fringe of the RB1 tier in drafts.

  Bengals | James Wright limited this offseason    Wed Jul 1, 03:53 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR James Wright (knee) was not part of team activities this offseason. Wright is expected to be the No. 4 wide receiver behind WRs A.J. Green, Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu.

  Bengals | Marvin Jones is fully recovered    Wed Jun 24, 09:02 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (ankle, foot) did not play in 2014 due to multiple foot and ankle issues, but he is healthy and was impressive in organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp.

Footballguys view: Jones is a deep threat who had last season blown up by injuries. The Bengals are very excited to have him back, and he should excel across from A.J. Green. He certainly can do more against single coverage than Mohamed Sanu. We see him as a WR5 or WR6 (about his current ADP) but he has the potential to produce at a higher level. In 2013, Jones finished the year as the 21st-best fantasy wide receiver.

  Bengals | Mohamed Sanu in mix to start    Wed Jun 24, 09:01 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu is in the mix to start opposite WR A.J. Green, but with WR Marvin Jones (ankle, foot) healthy Sanu will have plenty of competition.

Footballguys view: Sanu had a lot of issues holding onto the ball last season (he has seven dropped passes last year, tied for third-most in 2014) and is going to have a hard time beating out Marvin Jone--if Jones is healthy. Right now, he's going undrafted in early drafts and we wouldn't take him as more than a late-round flier.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert back in business    Wed Jun 24, 09:01 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow, shoulder) had his 2014 season cut short by a dislocated elbow and shoulder injury, but he is back to 100 percent and was impressive during organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp.

Footballguys view: Eifert has been fantastic in spring practices, and with Jermaine Gresham in the wind, will be a big part of this offense. We have him rated as a TE2, and his ADP is even lower right now, but if healthy he could have a very productive season, especially in two tight end leagues.

  Bengals | A.J. McCarron expected to be No. 2    Wed Jun 24, 09:00 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB A.J. McCarron is expected to be the primary backup quarterback to QB Andy Dalton.

Footballguys view: McCarron has done well enough to make everyone else not named Dalton expendable--and maybe make Dalton nervous. That's a way down the road, at least this season, but it bodes well for McCarron that he has impressed this quickly after missing part of last season due to injury.

  Bengals | Josh Johnson not in Cincy plans    Wed Jun 24, 08:59 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Josh Johnson is not expected to compete with QB A.J. McCarron for the backup job to starting QB Andy Dalton, and is viewed as just an extra arm in camp.

Footballguys view: Not surprisingly, Johnson continues to not live up to the potential many saw in him when he joined the league. This could be his final shot at a roster spot, as at this point he's pretty clearly unable to play at a pro level.

  Bengals | Vontaze Burfict is a question mark    Wed Jun 24, 08:57 PM

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (knee) is working his way back from microfracture surgery on his knee and is viewed as a question mark heading into training camp.

Footballguys view: Burfict exploded in 2013, but injuries took him out of 2014.The knee is a concern and starting off training camp on the PUP list would be concerning. If he's healthy, he should be a fantasy stud, but there seems to be real doubt as to whether he will be healthy.

  Bengals | Keith Wenning signed    Wed Jun 24, 02:33 PM

Free-agent QB Keith Wenning (Ravens) signed with the Cincinnati Bengals Wednesday, June 24. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Ball State product came into the league as a sixth-round pick for the Ravens in the 2014 NFL draft. He's got good anticipation and gets the ball out of his hand quickly. He'll be a camp arm for the Bengals, but he might do enough to stick around on the practice squad.

  Bengals | Cedric Ogbuehi unsure about return    Tue Jun 23, 04:11 PM

Cincinnati Bengals OT Cedric Ogbuehi (knee) said he is making progress in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament but would not say when he thinks he will return to the field.

Footballguys view: The Bengals selected back-to-back tackles in the first two round of the 2015 NFL draft. Ogbuehi was their first-round pick, and he's got the time to properly heal from this knee injury. We could see Ogbuehi starting the season on the PUP list as there's no real timetable for his expected return. He's got the upside to be one of the best tackles in the game, so we're expecting the Bengals to be very cautious with him as he recovers.

  Bengals | Marvin Jones happy with progress    Mon Jun 22, 02:25 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Lewis (ankle, foot) said he is happy with how he performed during offseason workouts. 'I'm rolling. I don't think that's ever going to change. But it feels good just to track those deep balls and go and just - boom! - go. I'm happy and I'm proud of myself for just pushing through this situation,' Jones said. Jones showed quick feet and steady hands during the workouts.

Footballguys view: We're hopeful that Jones can get his career back on track after missing the entire 2014 season. Jones was put on Injured Reserve last year with this foot problem, but now he's close to full strength. In 2013, Jones scored 10 touchdowns, snared 51 passes for 712 yards and finished as the 21st-best fantasy receiver that season. If healthy, he could post similar numbers (with fewer touchdowns) in 2015.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert impressing    Mon Jun 22, 11:27 AM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow, shoulder) was brought along slowly this spring, but he caught virtually everything thrown his way in open practices. Eifert looked sharp running routes.

Footballguys view: Great news for the Bengals here. Having an asset like Eifert playing at the top of his game can go a long way to helping this offense. A first-round pick in 2013, Eifert has yet to make much of an impact as a pro. Last year, a dislocated elbow suffered in the first game caused him to miss the season. This year, Eifert is the clear-cut starter at tight end for the Bengals and he has the upside to perform like a low-end TE1. His current ADP is TE18 (14.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bengals | Marvin Jones having good offseason    Fri Jun 19, 04:28 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (foot, ankle) supposedly looked quicker than he did before missing last season with a broken ankle. Jones was able to get a good amount of repetitions and get his timting back with QB Andy Dalton, according to Coley Harvey of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Message! Jones has a ton of talent, he just needs to stay healthy and he will produce for the Bengals...and for his fantasy owners. As the Bengals WR2 he could snare about 50 passes this season with 4-6 touchdowns thrown in.

  Bengals | Waive Terrelle Pryor    Thu Jun 18, 05:24 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Terrelle Pryor was waived Thursday, June 18.

Footballguys view: Pryor's just not going to stick in the NFL. He was bounced from the Chiefs earlier this year, and now he's back on the open market. Maybe--maybe--some team will take a chance on him as a camp arm, but we're not holding our breath.

  Bengals | Cedric Ogbuehi signs deal    Thu Jun 11, 02:44 PM

Cincinnati Bengals OT Cedric Ogbuehi signed a four-year deal with the team Thursday, June 11. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Ogbuehi is coming off a torn ACL, so the Bengals will take it slow with him given they have the tackle spots on both sides locked up. The line isn't desperate for his services at this point.

  Bengals | Geno Atkins impressing    Wed Jun 10, 10:55 AM

Cincinnati Bengals DT Geno Atkins (knee) looks 'scary' in organized team activities, according to defensive line coach Jay Hayes. 'It's scary how fast and explosive he is right now,' Hayes said. 'I think he has the confidence that he has his legs under him. He feels like he did.'

Footballguys view: A scary Atkins is going to be a concern for opponents this season. Atkins can stuff the run, but he also can generate middle pressure against the quarterback. It sounds like Atkins should rebound from a disappointing 2014 where he looked tentative returning from his ACL injury.

  Bengals | Marvin Jones back at practice    Tue Jun 2, 10:38 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (ankle, foot) was able to take part in practice Tuesday, June 2, at organized team activities (OTAs). He broke away from a cornerback and had a catch on a deep route from QB Andy Dalton.

Footballguys view: Jones is such a talented wide receiver. In 2013, Jones started to come on and finished the season with 51 catches for 712 yards and a whopping 10 touchdowns. He didn't play at all last year due to this injury. Jones is back, and fantasy owners should take note. He could be a helluva value for fantasy owners this season as he's coming off the board at WR58 (13.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Bengals | Rex Burkhead working as receiver    Tue Jun 2, 09:43 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Rex Burkhead was working with receivers and catching passes during the media portion of practice at organized team activities (OTAs) this week.

Footballguys view: Burkhead has been used in the slot for the Bengals before. The team wants to get him a little more involved in the offense this year, but it's unlikely to be a large enough role to make him a fantasy factor.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill expects to share snaps    Fri May 29, 05:28 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill said he expects to share carries with RB Giovani Bernard this upcoming season. 'Obviously there's going to be a balanced attack,' Hill said. 'I don't think he's got to wear either one of us out, so that way we can make it through all 16 games for a playoff push.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners should be expecting a RBBC as well. Hill is the lead back, and he's the more valuable back for fantasy. Right now, Hill is coming off the board at RB11 (2.09) in 12-team PPR leagues. Bernard is a later pick at RB25 (5.09).

  Bengals | Tyler Kroft signs    Thu May 28, 04:02 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Kroft signed his four-year rookie deal Thursday, May 28. Financial terms were not disclosed.

  Bengals | Vontaze Burfict has work to do    Tue May 26, 04:59 PM

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (knee) will be rehabilitating throughout the summer and has a long road to recovery ahead of him, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Burfict is recovering from surgery on his left knee.

Footballguys view: Burfict is currently recovering from microfracture knee surgery, and his status for the start of training camp is up in the air. In fact, Burfict might not even be ready at the beginning of the regular season. He's a candidate to begin the regular season on the PUP list.

  Bengals | A.J. Green wants extension, not in rush    Mon May 25, 10:32 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green would like to sign a contract extension with the Bengals and the team would like to sign him to an extension. Green currently has a fifth-year option worth $10.2 million, which would make him the largest cap hit on this season's team.

Footballguys view: There's a couple of contract situations to work out before Green gets his extension. Both the Cowboys (Dez Bryant) and the Broncos (Demaryius Thomas) have to decide if they're going to sign their franchise-tagged superstar wide receivers to long-term deals. If that happens before the July 15th deadline, it will help establish a price for guys like Green. With next season's strong class of free-agent wide receivers, whichever one signs first, is likely to be surpassed by the rest.

  Bengals | AJ McCarron healthy    Sat May 23, 06:18 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron (shoulder) is healthy and hoping to push QB Andy Dalton in 2015. 'We wanted him in our building so bad and it happened and then it didn't happen and now it's happening ... So it's fun. It's delayed gratification, that's all. Now we've got a chance to see where he can take himself and where we can help him go,' explained quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese.

Footballguys view: McCarron is healthy, and he has enough confidence for two players. We're not believers in his long-term upside, but it will be interesting to see how he performs in training camp and the preseason. Andy Dalton is the clear-cut starter, and we don't see McCarron pushing him for that spot.

  Bengals | Vontaze Burfict's status uncertain    Fri May 22, 02:43 PM

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict's (knee) status for the start of training camp is uncertain at this point. Burfict hopes to be ready for camp and does not want to be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: The PUP list to start camp is different from the PUP list to start the regular season. If on the PUP list at the start of training camp, Burfict would be clear to return at any time he's ready. If on the PUP list to start the regular season, Burfict would be forced to miss the first six weeks of the season. We feel he'll be ready for Week 1, but his status for the start of training camp is clearly up in the air.

Cincinnati Bengals OT Andre Smith (triceps) is making progress in his recovery from a triceps injury but is not expected to participate in offseason workouts.

  Bengals | James Wright expected to practice    Fri May 22, 02:37 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR James Wright (knee) is expected to participate in offseason workouts that start next week.

Footballguys view: Wright was a seventh-round pick by the Bengals in the 2014 NFL draft. He's a reserve receiver worth keeping an eye on in dynasty leagues.

  Bengals | Marvin Jones should be at workouts    Fri May 22, 02:16 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (foot) should be able to participate in offseason workouts that start next week.

Footballguys view: We're excited to see Jones back in action. He emerged late in the 2013 season with 713 yards and 10 touchdowns, but Jones didn't play at all last year. If healthy, Jones will be a strong option for the WR2 job in Cincinnati opposite A.J. Green.

Cincinnati Bengals OT Jake Fisher signed his four-year rookie deal Wednesday, May 20. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed. Fisher was the team's second-round draft pick.

Footballguys view: Coming out of Oregon, Fisher displays tremendous athleticism on the football field. He's a perfect fit for the zone system the Bengals use up front, and Fisher can play at left tackle or right tackle in the pros.

  Bengals | C.J. Uzomah signs deal    Thu May 14, 12:31 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah signed a contract with the team Thursday, May 14. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: In the fifth round of the 2015 NFL draft, the Bengals added Uzomah--a former high school wide receiver with move tight end ability at the pro level. Uzomah can line up all over the field (slot, in-line, out wide, in the backfield), and this versatility could help him get on the field as a rookie. He'll compete for playing time behind Tyler Eifert and fellow rookie Tyler Kroft.
