A.J. Green - WRPosted 11/15/18 9:16am ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) remained absent from practice Thursday, Nov. 15.
Huddle Up: It is widely expected that Green will miss at least one more game, paving the way for Tyler Boyd and John Ross to see an increased target share. You're starting Boyd, and Ross is a decent sleeper choice, although the matchup versus the Baltimore Ravens is not ideal.
John Ross - WRPosted 11/15/18 11:11am ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (groin) remained limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 15.
Huddle Up: The Bengals are thin at wide receiver with A.J. Green out, which is why Ross saw six targets last week. He has a tough matchup against the Baltimore Ravens this week, so don't start him as more than a deep flex.
Joe Mixon - RBPosted 11/15/18 11:06am ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 15, because of a knee injury.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if he is in any danger of missing the Week 11 game. He has posted solid numbers over the last few weeks and would be a No. 2 fantasy running back if he is able to play.
John Ross - WRPosted 11/14/18 12:20pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (groin) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Nov. 14.
Huddle Up: Ross is playing a larger role with A.J. Green sidelined, but he only caught two passes last week, although he did score. What's promising is that Ross was targeted six times. Keep him in the flex conversation even in a tough matchup versus the Baltimore Ravens.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 11/14/18 5:21pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis is 'still hopeful' he'll have WR A.J. Green (foot) back on the field for the team's Week 11 game Sunday, Nov. 18, versus the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: It seems a lot more likely than not that Green will remain out through Week 11, as his injury has kept him sidelined for only one game thus far when his original timetable called for him to miss more time than that. Either way, he's a WR1 whenever he gets back, but his owners should begin preparing for another week without Green's services.
Giovani Bernard - RBPosted 11/11/18 6:53am ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) is expected to play in Week 10's game against the New Orleans Saints, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Bernard was listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant throughout the week. Assuming that he is active versus the Saints, he should only be considered as a starting option in PPR fantasy leagues due to the presence of a healthy Joe Mixon.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 11/11/18 8:07am ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) has been ruled out for Week 10 and is not expected to play in Week 11, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Owners should monitor Green's practice participation next week to see if he will have any chance to play in Week 11. Tyler Boyd and C.J. Uzomah would see more targets than usual if Green sits again and could be starting options in all leagues.
Tyler Boyd - WRPosted 11/11/18 1:53pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd registered three receptions for a team-best 65 yards on four targets in the Week 10 loss against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: The Bengals obviously missed A.J. Green quite a bit, but Boyd continues to be a solid fantasy receiver. He has 62 or more receiving yards in six of his past eight outings and he has scored five times. He remains a decent WR3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Joe Mixon - RBPosted 11/11/18 1:48pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 11 times for 61 yards in the Week 10 game against the New Orleans Saints and he added 24 yards on two receptions.
Huddle Up: Mixon had a pretty decent afternoon considering the Bengals were tuned up and they abandoned the run rather early. Still, it wasn't a great fantasy performance and he remains more of a low-end RB2 heading into Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Andy Dalton - QBPosted 11/11/18 1:45pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 12-of-20 passes for 153 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 10 loss against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Dalton was sacked four times and he was hassled by the Saints defense all day, and it got worse as the day went on. The team abandoned the run with a lopsided score on the board and the defense just pinned their ears back. He'll look to rebound in Baltimore in Week 11.
C.J. Uzomah - TEPosted 11/11/18 2:00pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah registered 23 yards on three receptions on four targets in the Week 10 game against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: The Saints have been banged up in the receiving corps, as A.J. Green and Tyler Kroft were inactive for this one. However, Uzomah didn't do anything special and isn't worth anything more than a spot as a low-end TE2 in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 11 in Baltimore.
John Ross - WRPosted 11/11/18 1:57pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross posted two catches for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 loss against the New Orleans Saints with a team-high six targets.
Huddle Up: Ross led the team in targets, as he was forced to step up with A.J. Green inactive due to injury. He did a decent job operating as the No. 2 receiver, but he is still only worth a look as a low-end WR4 or flex option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Matt Barkley - QBPosted 11/11/18 2:05pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Matt Barkley went 15-for-25 for 232 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 10.
Huddle Up: Barkley played well this week but may not receive another start with Josh Allen working his way back from his elbow injury. There is a good chance that Allen starts in Week 12 but probably can be avoided in most leagues.
Brandon LaFell - WRPosted 11/11/18 7:53pm ET
Oakland Raiders WR Brandon LaFell checked in with four grabs and 47 yards on six targets in the Week 10 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: LaFell is starting to get more comfortable and more involved in the Oakland offense, stepping up to try and fill the void left by the departed Amari Cooper. Still, he remains nothing more than a WR5 in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Matt Barkley - QBPosted 11/10/18 1:05pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) has been ruled out of the Week 10 game. QB Matt Barkley is expected to be the starting quarterback against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Allen is working his way back from the elbow injury but is probably a week away from returning. Barkley should not be a starting option in any league.
Tyler Boyd - WRPosted 11/10/18 7:26pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd will face the New Orleans Saints in Week 10 with WR A.J. Green (foot) ruled out, and the Saints have allowed the fourth-most receiving yards and the sixth-most receiving touchdowns this season.
Huddle Up: Boyd is in the middle of a career year, and while he is going to draw more attention with Green sidelined, he should also see even more targets. He should at least be a WR3 against the vulnerable secondary of the Saints.
Giovani Bernard - RBPosted 11/9/18 9:42am ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) on Friday, Nov. 9, was listed as questionable for Week 10 with a knee injury but is expected to play.
Huddle Up: One of the few Bengals trending in the right health direction, Bernard is expected back after being sidelined since Week 4, but there is real question on how many snaps he'll be able to handle spelling Joe Mixon. Aside from a deep-league emergency, keep Bernard benched until we see what his workload will be.
C.J. Uzomah - TEPosted 11/9/18 2:06pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (clavicle) was able to practice in full Friday, Nov. 9 and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 10 game against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Uzomah is needed as Tyler Kroft (foot) is out again this week. While the Saints pass defense has been roughed up for 311.4 yards per game and 18 touchdowns, good for 31st in the NFL, the damage has been mostly wide receivers. New Orleans has allowed just 29 catches on 51 targets for 331 yards and a touchdown to opposing tight ends for the fifth-fewest fantasy points allowed against that position.
Giovani Bernard - RBPosted 11/9/18 2:04pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) was limited in practice for a third straight day Friday, Nov. 9, and officially he is listed as questionable for Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Bernard has been trending toward a return, but his touches are likely to be limited returning from an injury and playing behind a healthy Joe Mixon. If he is active Sunday he should only be starting for fantasy owners in deeper PPR formats.
C.J. Uzomah - TEPosted 11/8/18 11:53am ET
Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (clavicle) logged a limited practice Thursday, No.v 8.
Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Uzomah will play, but he's not a recommended start if he does. The New Orleans Saints have only allowed one touchdown to the position all year and give up an average of 42.25 yards per game to tight ends.
Giovani Bernard - RBPosted 11/8/18 11:49am ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 8.
Huddle Up: If Bernard is upgraded to a full practice tomorrow then he'll be active for Week 10. Even if he is active he will be relegated to backup duties behind Joe Mixon. Only start him as a deep PPR flex if you're desperate.
C.J. Uzomah - TEPosted 11/7/18 2:19pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (clavicle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 7.
Huddle Up: Uzomah should be good to go for the Week 10 game against the New Orleans Saints, but check back Friday for his official injury designation. He is a borderline low-end TE1/TE2 in fantasy leagues of 14 or more teams and a decent mid-tier DFS play with a fairly attractive matchup against the NFL's 31st-ranked pass defense.
Giovani Bernard - RBPosted 11/7/18 2:17pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 7.
Huddle Up: Check back on Bernard's injury designation on Friday before deciding on him for Week 10. However, for fantasy purposes, his usefulness is rather limited as long as Joe Mixon is healthy. Bernard's value is limited to deeper PPR formats at the moment.
John Ross - WRPosted 11/5/18 9:49am ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (groin) returned to practice Monday, Nov. 5.
Huddle Up: Ross' health and ability to stay on the field could take on a more important role if A.J. Green (toe) is forced to miss multiple games, although the former's durability will make him difficult to trust. Nevertheless, he could end up being worth a stash until more is known about Green's condition.
Giovani Bernard - RBPosted 11/5/18 9:59am ET
Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) was back at practice Monday, Nov. 5.
Huddle Up: It's the first time Bernard has participated in football activities since his Week 4 injury. Joe Mixon has a solid grasp on his feature-back role, but Bernard has typically been very productive whenever he's been asked to fill in - be it as a spot starter or as a complementary back. Bernard is unlikely to have much fantasy value with Mixon healthy, but he's worth a stash in most leagues in case the second-year back goes down.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 11/5/18 12:14pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) will not need surgery on his injured foot, but he will miss at least two games before his foot is re-evaluated to determine when he can play again, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The fear was that Green would be out for the rest of the year, but overall this is good news. Fantasy owners won't have him for at least two weeks, though, so those in deeper leagues may want to add John Ross or Andrew Erickson if they're available.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 11/4/18 8:12am ET
Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is scheduled to visit foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Green Bay during the bye week, according to multiple sources.
Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Green will need to undergo surgery or miss any playing time but he did not seem to be overly concerned about the injury several days ago. He should be viewed as a WR1 if he is active for Week 10's game against the New Orleans Saints.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 11/4/18 11:43pm ET
Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is expected to miss multiple games due to a toe injury suffered in Week 8, according to a source. As noted, Green is set to meet with a specialist during the week, and the team remains hopeful that Green can avoid surgery.
Huddle Up: This is obviously bad news for Green, who is the centerpiece of Cincinnati's offense and a legit No. 1 fantasy wideout. While you should keep an eye out for the results of his appointment you should be proactive looking for possible replacement options on the waiver wire.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 10/30/18 9:22am ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) was seen in the team's locker room Tuesday, Oct. 30, wearing a walking boot on his right foot.
Huddle Up: Green played a full game Sunday, finishing with five receptions for 76 yards and a TD, but apparently injured the foot on his final catch of the game. There is no indication, though, that this is anything overly serious, and it comes at the right time with the Bengals on a bye in Week 9.
A.J. Green - WRPosted 10/30/18 7:25pm ET
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green's (toe) foot is in a walking boot to protect a toe injury, but Green said he expects to be fine.
Huddle Up: Green is optimistic about his status, and he also has the bye week to give him time to heal. Assuming he is healthy, he will be a WR1 against the New Orleans Saints in Week 10.
