Week 3: at Green Bay Packers

All RB vs GB

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Bengals offense has really struggled so far this season as they have failed to score a touchdown in either of their first two games. The Bengals offensive line has been a train wreck thus far, ranking dead last according to Footballguys offensive line guru Matt Bitonti. Their backfield has also been a mess as nobody has emerged as a clear lead back. Jeremy Hill got the start last week, but he finished with the least amount of snaps with 15, behind Joe Mixon with 16 and Giovani Bernard with 33. Joe Mixon led the team in carries with nine for 36 yards. Mixon looked solid on the few opportunities he did have, but he will need a larger share of snaps and carries to be effective for fantasy purposes. The Bengals will square off against a Packers run defense that struggled last week against the Falcons, allowing Devonta Freeman to rush for 84 yards and a pair of goal-line touchdowns. The Packers defense as a whole got pretty banged up in that game though, most notably losing their star interior defender Mike Daniels early in the game to a hamstring injury. While Daniels had an encouraging MRI on Tuesday, his status is still in question this week's game. If Daniels plays, this will be a neutral matchup for the Bengals running backs. But if Daniels does not suit up, this Packers defensive line will far less effective at stopping the run.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs HOU (6 / 17 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)

Hill received another start, played 15 snaps and was fine. He showed decent power and generally got what was blocked for him. Unfortunately, that wasn't much. Without big holes to run through, Hill averaged less than three yards per carry. On seven touches, he didn't make a guy miss.

2017 Week 1 vs BAL (6 / 26 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / -2 / 0 rec)

The Bengals rotated backs with each getting a series mostly to themselves early. Hill was the first back in the rotation and had the first drive to himself (except for one third down). His best run of the day came on his first touch, cutting through a big hole up the middle and running straight ahead for a gain of 12. Hill started the first drive of the second half as well, but had no room to run. At some point he tweaked his ankle and sat out the final 20 minutes after playing just 10 snaps. With the Bengals trailing, he likely wouldn't have been part of the game plan down the stretch anyway. He indicated after the game that his ankle was fine.
