Jeff Driskel - QBPosted 12/14/18 1:42pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel (shoulder) practiced in full on Friday, Dec. 14 and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 15 game against the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: Driskel continues to start with Andy Dalton (thumb) done for the season, so the Bengals get a chance to evaluate him for the future. However, fantasy owners should steer far clear of him, even against a Raiders pass defense allowing an NFL-high 31 passing scores this season.
Tyler Boyd - WRPosted 12/14/18 7:06pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd faces the Oakland Raiders in Week 15, and the Raiders have allowed an NFL-high 31 receiving touchdowns this season.
Huddle Up: Boyd has taken over as the go-to option in the passing game with A.J. Green sidelined. The quarterback situation in Cincinnati isn't ideal, but Boyd should still be a volume-based WR3 with upside because of the touchdown potential.
Jeff Driskel - QBPosted 12/13/18 3:39pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 13.
Huddle Up: Driskel has thrown three touchdowns in the last three games but has also been held to under 200 yards in two of those three games. Owners in all leagues should have better options available and should avoid Driskel.
Jeff Driskel - QBPosted 12/12/18 1:11pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel (shoulder) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: Driskel is what some might call a sneaky start against one of the worst fantasy pass defenses this year in the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders have surrendered the most passing touchdowns (30) in 2018, so Driskel is at the very worst a cheap DFS play.
Giovani Bernard - RBPosted 12/9/18 6:38pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed three times for seven yards and caught two passes for 13 yards in a 26-21 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Bernard has taken a back seat to Joe Mixon, and his role has only decreased amid a rash of injuries to the Cincinnati offense. He is only a handcuff to Mixon at this point.
Tyler Boyd - WRPosted 12/9/18 6:35pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd caught three of his six targets for 52 yards in a 26-21 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Boyd is the closest thing the Bengals have to a go-to receiver these days, making him a volume-based WR3 candidate for an enticing Week 15 matchup with Oakland.
Joe Mixon - RBPosted 12/9/18 6:20pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 26 times for 111 yards and a touchdown and caught five passes for 27 yards in a 26-21 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Mixon has now topped 80 rushing yards in three straight games, and he is seeing plenty of work as one of Cincinnati's few healthy weapons. He's a strong RB2 option heading into a Week 15 matchup with Oakland.
John Ross - WRPosted 12/9/18 6:43pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross caught two of his four targets for 11 yards and a touchdown in a 26-21 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 14, and Ross has caught a touchdown in four of the last five games.
Huddle Up: Despite the four scores in five games, Ross has topped 40 receiving yards just once all year. He's a risky, touchdown-dependent flex play.
Jeff Driskel - QBPosted 12/9/18 10:42pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel went 18-for-27 for 170 yards and a touchdown during the team's Week 15 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: To be fair, Driskel had a running TD wiped away on a bizarre interpretation of a new rule that ended his progress just short of the goal line, but even with that it would've been a middling day. There's nothing to see here. Move along.
Tyler Boyd - WRPosted 12/8/18 8:44am ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd said he would be open to signing a contract extension during the offseason, as opposed to waiting to test the free agency waters after his rookie deal expires following the 2019 season.
Huddle Up: The 24-year-old Boyd is just 62 yards away from reaching 1,000 receiving yards for the first time in his career. He has 13 receptions for 182 yards and a touchdown over his last two contests and can be viewed as a WR2 for Week 14's game versus the Los Angeles Chargers.
Joe Mixon - RBPosted 12/7/18 10:35am ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) looked good in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and is expected to play in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Mixon has been a bright spot in the battered and sluggish Cincy offense, and despite the Bengals' status as heavy road underdogs Sunday against the host Chargers, Mixon is still worthy of high-end RB2 starting consideration.
Joe Mixon - RBPosted 12/7/18 4:29pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Mixon has been playing well over the last few weeks and should continue to receive plenty of touches because of the quarterback situation. He should be considered a No. 2 running back in all leagues despite the matchup.
Joe Mixon - RBPosted 12/6/18 10:26am ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) participated in practice for a second straight day Thursday, Dec. 6. He was limited the previous day with a foot injury.
Huddle Up: There was no setback Thursday for Mixon, keeping him on track as a high-end RB2 play against the Chargers in Week 14.
Joe Mixon - RBPosted 12/5/18 12:40pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: Mixon pops up on the injury report every now and then, but this issue doesn't seem to be serious enough for him to miss time. Practicing fully over the next couple of days would be ideal, but he's a fringe RB1 nonetheless.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 12/3/18 12:51pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) was spotted wearing a protective boot on his right foot Monday, Dec. 3. Head coach Marvin Lewis had no update regarding his status, however.
Huddle Up: Green fell to the field without contact while trying to begin a route early in the second quarter and immediately grabbed for his foot. He was carted off moments later and did not return. While Lewis would not provide an update, it seems extremely unlikely Cincinnati will bring him back this season in the likely event this injury will cost him more than one game. If that ends up being the case, Tyler Boyd will likely be the only Bengal receiver worth using in fantasy.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 12/3/18 4:51pm ET
Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is expected to undergo surgery to repair the torn ligaments in his toe, according to a source. He is expected to be sidelined for three to four months but should be ready for offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: Green may be limited during the offseason workouts but should be completely healthy for the start of training camp. He can be considered a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues next season as long as he does not suffer any setbacks.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 12/3/18 4:43pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list after aggravating his toe injury during the Week 13 game.
Huddle Up: Green is expected to be sidelined for a few months but should be ready for at least training camp next season and could participate in some offseason workouts. He will be a No. 1 fantasy receiver next season. Tyler Boyd will continue to be the main option for the Bengals in the passing game and can be a No. 2 receiver most weeks.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 12/2/18 10:50am ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) has been declared out for the rest of the Week 13 game Sunday, Dec. 2, after being carted off the field in the second quarter with a right-foot injury.
Huddle Up: A brutal blow for Green and his fantasy owners as he had just returned Sunday after missing the previous three games with a toe injury. Green's despairing reaction on the cart and the team's quick decision to declare him out are obviously not good signs. He finished the game with one reception for seven yards.
Tyler Boyd - WRPosted 12/2/18 3:05pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd posted six receptions for 97 yards on eight targets in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Boyd has really stepped up his game with A.J. Green sidelined or limited with his toe ailment. Green was able to return for this one but he was a non-factor. Boyd has emerged as a solid WR2 for fantasy owners heading into Week 14 against the Chargers.
Giovani Bernard - RBPosted 12/2/18 3:03pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed five times for 14 yards in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos and he added six receptions for 32 yards on eight targets.
Huddle Up: Bernard did OK for those using him as a low-end RB3 or flex option in PPR, but he has very little use in standard play as long as Joe Mixon is healthy. The Bengals travel to meet the Chargers in Week 14.
Joe Mixon - RBPosted 12/2/18 3:01pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon racked up 12 carries for 82 yards in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos and he added two grabs for 13 yards.
Huddle Up: It wasn't a terrible day for Mixon, especially with the Bengals getting away from the run in the second half. He remains a decent low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 14 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Jeff Driskel - QBPosted 12/2/18 2:56pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel completed 25-of-38 passes for 236 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Driskel was under pressure frequently while being dropped for four sacks. It won't get any easier for Driskel and the skidding Bengals as they take on the Chargers in Week 14.
Cody Core - WRPosted 12/2/18 3:18pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Cody Core had just one catch on four targets in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos, but it was good for a 30-yard touchdown.
Huddle Up: The touchdown was nice, but Core shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy roster at this juncture. He is more of a special teams maven than a difference maker on offense.
C.J. Uzomah - TEPosted 12/2/18 3:14pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah registered five receptions for 33 yards on seven targets in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Uzomah has three or more grabs in four straight outings to help those in deeper PPR formats, but he hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 7 and should be avoided in most other leagues. The Bengals travel to meet the Chargers in Week 14.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 11/30/18 9:50am ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) was not listed Friday, Nov. 30, on the team's Week 13 injury report.
Huddle Up: Green's fantasy owners have had to do without since Week 8, but he's ready to plug back in as a WR1.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 11/29/18 11:19am ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 29.
Huddle Up: Green has said he expects to play this week, but owners should know more about his status in the next few days. He will be a risky option because of the injury and new quarterback but can still be a No. 2 fantasy receiver in most leagues even though he will be facing a tough Denver Broncos secondary.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 11/28/18 8:40am ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) said he'll play in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Green appears healthy, which is the good news. The bad news is he has Jeff Driskel throwing to him now. History says Green is a WR2, but he might not be up to that level for a week or two.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 11/28/18 1:01pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 28.
Huddle Up: Green is expected to play barring a setback over the next few days. Green's presence lowers Tyler Boyd's ceiling a tad, but both have to be started when healthy. Temper expectations should for Green, though, as he's coming off the injury and could be facing Chris Harris Jr. most of the game.
Andy Dalton - QBPosted 11/26/18 1:34pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (thumb) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 26. QB Tom Savage was claimed off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers in a corresponding move.
Huddle Up: With Dalton done for the year, Jeff Driskel figures to start for the remainder of Cincinnati's games. He held his own after replacing Dalton in Week 12, but he's not on the fantasy radar in traditional leagues.
Andy Dalton - QBPosted 11/25/18 12:05pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (thumb) suffered a right thumb injury during the Week 12 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see how long Dalton may be sidelined because of the injury. Jeff Driskel would be the starting quarterback if Dalton misses time and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
