  Bengals | Auden Tate done for the year    Tue Dec 10, 02:21 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a sprained left medial collateral ligament Tuesday, Dec. 10.

Footballguys view: The Bengals move forward with Tyler Boyd as their lead receiver. Behind him, guys like Alex Erickson and John Ross will try to make an impact. In a corresponding move, WR Damion Willis was elevated from the practice squad to replace Tate on the roster.

  Bengals | A.J. Green still day-to-day    Mon Dec 9, 04:30 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) is still considered day-to-day, according to head coach Zac Taylor.

Footballguys view: It would be news if he was actually practicing. Taylor continues to hope that Green will play this season but we don't see that happening. They are banged up at the position even more now with Auden Tate injured.

  Bengals | Auden Tate suffered MCL sprain in Week 14    Mon Dec 9, 01:03 PM

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate (knee) was diagnosed with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee after an MRI on Monday, Dec.9, showed no structural damage, according to ESPN's Ben Baby.

Footballguys view: It's somewhat minor but Tate might be done for 2019. Alex Erickson will get a larger role if Tate misses time. John Ross can score from anywhere on the field and could be 'what the heck' flex worthy with Tate out.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon finished with 23 carries, 146 yards and a touchdown in the Week 14 game against the Cleveland Browns and he added three receptions for 40 yards.

Footballguys view: Mixon has been coming on even as the Bengals season has been slipping away. He'll be a low ceiling play against the Patriots next week but still needs to be lineups.

  Bengals | Drew Sample lands on IR    Sat Dec 7, 11:51 AM

The Cincinnati Bengals placed TE Drew Sample (ankle) on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 7.

Footballguys view: Sample, a second-round pick out of Washington in the 2019 NFL draft, hasn't played since Week 10. He started a couple of games this year for the Bengals but only caught five passes for 30 yards. We'll see if he can emerge as more of a weapon (and stay healthy) for the Bengals next season.

  Bengals | Cincinnati's injury report for Week 14    Fri Dec 6, 03:17 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle), DE Sam Hubbard (knee) and TE Drew Sample (ankle) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 14 versus the Cleveland Browns. S Brandon Wilson (hand) did not practice Friday, Dec. 6, and has also been ruled out. DT Geno Atkins (non-injury), TE Cethan Carter (concussion), CB Darqueze Dennard (non-injury), TE Tyler Eifert (non-injury), TE Mason Schreck (illness), LB Nick Vigil (ankle) and S Shaun Williams (ankle) practiced in full Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Hubbard has been a standout in a down year for the Bengals, so the defense will miss him against a sometimes suspect Browns pass protection unit.

  Bengals | A.J. Green out for Week 14    Wed Dec 4, 01:02 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) won't play in Week 14, according to head coach Zac Taylor. Taylor thinks Green can return this year, and there haven't been extensive talks about the Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: It would be news if Green is going to play. He's unlikely to play this year even though Taylor thinks he could. Fantasy GMs have moved on long ago waiting for Green to get back this season.

  Bengals | John Ross will have a role    Tue Dec 3, 01:16 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross will have a role in Week 14, and he won't be on a pitch count, according to head coach Zac Taylor. 'I don't know if we'll just start and throw him out there and play him 65 plays,' Taylor said. 'He'll have a role and he'll have a spot on the offense moving forward for sure. He's got speed that people fear. We would like to get that back on the field.'

Footballguys view: Ross will have a role but Fantasy GMs need to proceed with caution his first week back. His big-play ability and deep speed are a nice asset for the Bengals offense, so consider Ross a deep 'what the heck' flex...if you want to trust him...in Week 14.

  Bengals | John Ross likely to play Week 14    Mon Dec 2, 03:07 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (clavicle) is expected to come off the Reserve/Injured list this week and be active in Week 14 versus the Cleveland Browns, according to head coach Zac Taylor.

Footballguys view: It will be good to get Ross and his speed out there once again. With Andy Dalton at quarterback, Ross has flex appeal (when at full strength) due to his skill set and connection with the veteran quarterback. Monitor his practice status this week and know that's it's best just to monitor him in the first week back or start him but only as a 'what the heck' flex in Week 14.

  Bengals | C.J. Uzomah hauls in five receptions    Sun Dec 1, 07:01 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah ended up with five grabs for 51 yards on six targets in Week 13 against the New York Jets.

Footballguys view: Uzomah also dropped an easy touchdown or it would have been an even bigger game. He has earned desperation play value next week vs. Cleveland.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd scores again in Week 13    Sun Dec 1, 06:55 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd ended up with five receptions for 59 yards and a touchdown across 10 targets in Week 13 against the New York Jets.

Footballguys view: Boyd like the rest of the Bengals offense had his tide lifted by the return of Andy Dalton. He'll be a solid PPR WR3/Flex against the Browns next week.

  Bengals | Auden Tate targeted seven times    Sun Dec 1, 06:23 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate finished with four receptions for a team-high 66 yards in Week 13 against the New York Jets on seven targets.

Footballguys view: Tate's stock should be upgraded with Andy Dalton back. He's a deep league option against Cleveland next week and should be carried in all dynasty leagues with AJ Green halfway out the door.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon totals 70 scrimmage yards, TD    Sun Dec 1, 06:20 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 19 times for 44 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the New York Jets and he added four catches for 26 yards on four targets.

Footballguys view: Mixon wasn't efficient on the ground, but he was used more in the passing game with Andy Dalton back and he was in a much more viable offense in this game. He'll be a solid RB2 against the Browns next week.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton passes for 243 yards, TD    Sun Dec 1, 06:17 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 22-of-37 passes for 243 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 13 against the New York Jets.

Footballguys view: Dalton led the Bengals to their first win of the the season and another one could knock them out of the #1 spot of the draft. He'll get the Browns next week in a winnable game that might scare Bengals faithful.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 29, and has been ruled out for Week 13.

Footballguys view: We're not sure why this needs to keep being stated every week. It doesn't seem like Green is going to play this year. Auden Tate and Alex Erickson will continue to get extra snaps in his absence. Green might have played his last snap as a Bengal.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 28.

Footballguys view: Most Fantasy GMs have moved on from stashing Green on the bench just hoping he would be back at some point. The Bengals passing game gets a boost this week (even though they're still without Green) because of the return of starting quarterback Andy Dalton.

  Bengals | Cincinnati turns back to Andy Dalton    Mon Nov 25, 02:52 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton was named the starting quarterback for Week 13 against the New York Jets.

Footballguys view: The Bengals turned to rookie Ryan Finley for three games and he did not perform well. The team gets a boost with Dalton back under center. Adjust all fantasy projections for guys like Tyler Boyd and Joe Mixon accordingly. We'll see if A.J. Green comes back at some point this season too.
