• Tyler Eifert - TE
    Posted 9/20/18 11:51am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Eifert is an up-and-down tight end and Tyler Boyd has taken some of his luster of late. That being said, as long as Eifert is healthy he is capable of producing TE1 numbers.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 9/20/18 11:48am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Bernard takes over for Joe Mixon in Cincinnati's backfield and immediately becomes a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 with extra value in PPR leagues. Claim him right away if he's still on waivers.

  • Randy Bullock - PK
    Posted 9/19/18 5:28am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals PK Randy Bullock signed a two-year, $4.205 million extension Wednesday, Sept. 19, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Bullock leads the AFC in points and is a good PK1 against the Carolina Panthers this week.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 9/19/18 12:50pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Bernard is expected to see a much bigger role this week with Joe Mixon on the shelf, and Tra Carson cut loose. The Bengals backfield is so banged up that they signed Thomas Rawls off the street, and he might be active. Circle back around Friday to check his official injury status before plugging him into your active lineup.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE
    Posted 9/19/18 3:12pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has recorded five passes for 67 yards over the first two games of the season but could receive a bigger role as the season goes on. He probably should be owned in most leagues but can be benched if owners have better options available.

  • Tra Carson - RB
    Posted 9/17/18 7:29pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Tra Carson will be part of the backfield plan starting in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers with RB Joe Mixon (knee) sidelined.

    Huddle Up: Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor wants to use two backs in his rotation, even with Mixon out, so the entire workload won't fall on Giovani Bernard. Carson should see plenty of touches, but only enough to make him worth using in the deepest of fantasy leagues.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 9/17/18 7:27pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard is expected to see an increased workload starting in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers with RB Joe Mixon (knee) sidelined two to four weeks.

    Huddle Up: Bernard will see a larger piece of the pie, but he won't be the primary back. Offensive coordinator Bill Lazor reportedly wants to keep a rotation with two running backs, so Tra Carson will also factor into the mix. Bernard is still worth a look as an RB3 or flex option in PPR leagues, with lesser appeal in standard play.

  • Joe Mixon - RB
    Posted 9/15/18 9:54am ET

    Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Saturday, Sept. 15, and is expected to be sidelined for two to four weeks, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Mixon will miss at least one game because of the injury and could miss more depending on his recovery. Giovani Bernard should take over the starting job for now and can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option in all leagues.

  • Joe Mixon - RB
    Posted 9/14/18 1:54pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) may need to undergo arthroscopic surgery on the knee he injured in Week 2, which would sideline him for an undisclosed period of time, according to sources. Mixon is scheduled to receive a second opinion on his knee.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation because Mixon likely would miss several weeks if he undergoes surgery. Giovani Bernard probably would take over as the starting running back if Mixon is sidelined and could be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option.

  • Joe Mixon - RB
    Posted 9/14/18 2:28pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) will have a small particle removed from his knee Saturday, Sept. 15, according to a source. He is expected to miss two weeks.

    Huddle Up: This is a little bit of a sigh of relief given the initial scare. Mixon owners can cancel the scurried trade offers they sent for Giovani Bernard, although Bernard's value massively increases over the next two weeks. Simply put Mixon in an IR slot and claim Bernard if he's available.

  • Joe Mixon - RB
    Posted 9/13/18 5:59pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) sustained a right knee injury in the team's Week 2 game Thursday, Sept. 13, opposite the Baltimore Ravens but is being considered probable to return.

    Huddle Up: Mixon didn't seem to be shaken up or anything after failing to get into the end zone from one yard out prior to his injury being announced. Thus, expect him to return to the contest sooner than later.

  • Joe Mixon - RB
    Posted 9/13/18 6:15pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) returned to the game Thursday, Sept. 13, after missing just one series.

    Huddle Up: Fortunately, Mixon left only very briefly and was given some rush attempts right away upon his return. He's exhibited early RB1 potential for all fantasy leagues and is thriving on being the team's workhorse.

  • Joe Mixon - RB
    Posted 9/13/18 8:13pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) had to exit for a second time during the team's game Thursday, Sept. 13, versus the Baltimore Ravens due to a right knee injury. He's considered questionable to return this time.

    Huddle Up: Despite it being a close game, the Bengals may opt to keep Mixon sidelined this time, since it's the same knee he banged up earlier in the contest. The second-year tailback tallied 48 yards on 14 carries along with a three-yard reception before coming out.

  • Joe Mixon - RB
    Posted 9/13/18 8:31pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) returned to the game for a second time Thursday, Sept. 13.

    Huddle Up: Mixon not only managed to get back in, he returned with a fury, promptly notching two rushes for more than 10 yards in his first drive back in the game. He's now registered a respectable performance after it looked like he might hang a dud following his standout Week 1 showing. He should unquestionably be in all lineups as long as he can stay healthy.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 9/13/18 8:39pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard ran six times for 27 yards and caught four passes for 15 yards Thursday, Sept. 13, against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: Bernard is clearly the second fiddle to Joe Mixon and has some appeal in PPR leagues for gamers looking to fill a flex spot.

  • Tyler Boyd - WR
    Posted 9/13/18 8:36pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd landed six receptions for 91 yards and a touchdown Thursday, Sept. 13, against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: Boyd has taken over as a starter after the offseason release of WR Brandon LaFell. Injuries hampered Boyd in 2017, but he appears poised to step up opposite A.J. Green. He's a flex consideration with the right matchup. Week 3 brings the Bengals to Carolina.

  • A.J. Green - WR
    Posted 9/13/18 8:32pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green caught five passes for 69 yards and three touchdown receptions Thursday, Sept. 13, against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: Green is a WR1 in all formats when he and Andy Dalton are both healthy. The Bengals will face the Carolina Panthers in Week 3.

  • Joe Mixon - RB
    Posted 9/13/18 8:27pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (knee) rushed 21 times for 84 yards Thursday, Sept. 13, against the Baltimore Ravens. Mixon left the game more than once with an apparent knee injury. He finished with one reception for three yards.

    Huddle Up: Mixon will have a few extra days to heal before the Bengals take on the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Sept. 23. The injury did not appear to be hampering him much in the fourth quarter.

  • Andy Dalton - QB
    Posted 9/13/18 8:17pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 24-for-42 for 265 yards and four touchdown passes Thursday, Sept. 13, against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: The Bengals boast plenty of weapons to make the veteran a fringe starter on a weekly basis. Up next, Cincinnati faces the Carolina Panthers in Week 3 with a few extra days of rest working in its favor.

  • John Ross - WR
    Posted 9/13/18 9:17pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross was limited to one reception for eight yards against the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Sept. 13. He lost three yards on his lone rushing attempt.

    Huddle Up: Ross, a former first-round pick, has speed to burn but remains a limited participant in an offense full of weapons. Cincy faces the Carolina Panthers in Week 3, and Ross is no better than a blind flier until he earns a larger role.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE
    Posted 9/13/18 9:12pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert was held to two catches for 23 yards against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday, Sept. 13.

    Huddle Up: Baltimore blanked Charles Clay in Week 1 and did a number on Eifert this time out, even with the loss of LB C.J. Mosley early in the game. Eifert simply wasn't needed much in this one with the way A.J. Green dominated. Eifert is a slightly better play in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE
    Posted 9/12/18 10:54am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Sept. 12.

    Huddle Up: Eifert was only targeted three times last week but caught all three passes for 44 yards. A bonus with Eifert is that he is one of the better red-zone threats in the league when healthy. Start him tomorrow even in a tougher test versus the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Joe Mixon - RB
    Posted 9/10/18 12:30pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon could receive up to 22 carries in future games this season, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

    Huddle Up: Mixon's star shone bright in Week 1, albeit against a weaker defense in the Indianapolis Colts. His involvement in the passing game was also encouraging. The sophomore back deserves to be mentioned among the low-end RB1s going forward.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE
    Posted 9/10/18 3:26pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) fully participated in practice Monday, Sept. 10.

    Huddle Up: Eifert caught all three of his targets in Week 1 and finished with 44 yards. He will be facing a tough Baltimore Ravens defense this week but could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some fantasy leagues.

  • Andy Dalton - QB
    Posted 9/9/18 1:08pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 21-of-28 passes for 243 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Week 1 road win against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Dalton was sacked twice, but he was able to post a 109.7 quarterback rating with a high degree of accuracy. As usual, he also jelled rather nicely with A.J. Green, who rolled up 92 yards on six grabs, including one of the TDs. It's a quick turnaround for the Bengals, as they have their home opener in Week 2 against the division rival Baltimore Ravens.

  • John Ross - WR
    Posted 9/9/18 1:38pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross managed just one catch for three yards in Week 1 against the Indianapolis, but at least it was good for a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Ross was targeted just two times, so that's a bit of a disappointment for fantasy owners and DFS players who rolled the dice on the second-year receiver. He'll look for better results in Week 2 against the Ravens on Thursday, but he should only be treated as a WR5 in most formats.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE
    Posted 9/9/18 1:31pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert finished with three receptions and 44 yards on his three targets in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Eifert was able to play and make it through the full game without any setbacks with his back. That's the good news. The bad news is that he was unable to find the end zone. If he can stay healthy he is a vital cog in Cincinnati's red-zone offense and he can be a key contributor for fantasy owners. The Bengals host the Ravens in Week 2 on Thursday night.

  • A.J. Green - WR
    Posted 9/9/18 1:28pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green hauled in six receptions for a game-high 92 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Green and Andy Dalton were on the same page as usual, opening with a tremendous start for fantasy owners. Next up the Bengals will host the Ravens on Thursday night in Week 2. Green was limited to seven catches and 91 yards with no touchdowns on 20 targets in two games against Baltimore in 2017.

  • Joe Mixon - RB
    Posted 9/9/18 1:23pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon carried 17 times for 95 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 victory against the Indianapolis Colts. He also added five receptions for 54 yards on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Mixon dominated the backfield touches, as he has a total of 22 touches to just two for Giovani Bernard, his nearest competition. That's music to the ears of fantasy owners, who hate RB committees. There is no such thing in the Queen City, at least after Week 1. It's a quick turnaround for Mixon and the Bengals, who host the Ravens in Week 2 on Thursday night.

  • Tyler Boyd - WR
    Posted 9/9/18 1:40pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd ended up with three catches and 26 yards on five targets in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Boyd saw five targets to just two for John Ross, working as the No. 2 receiver for Andy Dalton. That's a good sign for fantasy owners who rolled the dice on him. He is a low-end WR4 or solid WR5 heading into Week 2 against the Ravens on Thursday night.
