    Posted 10/20/17 1:41pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 20, and has been removed from the Week 7 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Dalton has played well since his four-interception game in Week 1 and recorded 328 yards in the last game. He will be facing a tough Pittsburgh Steelers pass defense in Week 7 and can be benched if owners have better options to use.

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Dalton has thrown for at least 285 yards in each of his last two games but will be facing a tough Pittsburgh Steelers pass defense this week. Owners should be able to find better options to use and can avoid Dalton in Week 7.

  • Andy Dalton - QB
    Posted 10/18/17 1:22pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (ankle) was listed as a full participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Dalton will be facing a stiff test in Week 7 against the Steelers and their No. 1 ranked pass defense, as Pittsburgh has yielded just 153.5 yards per game with four touchdowns and five interceptions through six games. Dalton looks like he will definitely play, but he is not a recommended fantasy option.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE
    Posted 10/14/17 8:14pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back), who is out for the year, will be a free agent after this season, and Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer believes Eifert has played his last game for the franchise.

    Huddle Up: Eifert has been a monster in the red zone when healthy, but his career has been repeatedly stalled by injuries. He will be worth drafting wherever he plays next year, but don't count on him playing all 16 games.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE
    Posted 10/12/17 12:27pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Oct. 12. Eifert will undergo surgery Thursday and will miss the rest of the season.

    Huddle Up: Another Tyler will take over as the starting tight end for the Bengals: Tyler Kroft. He is a worthy pickup for those who are in a tight spot at the position, but don't rely on him as an every-week starter as opposed to Eifert.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE
    Posted 10/11/17 1:51pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) is considering undergoing another surgery on his back that would end his season, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Death, taxes and Tyler Eifert not playing a full season. The oft-injured tight end has never played a full 16-game season in his five-year career and has only played 10 games the last two seasons. If he does have the surgery then he can be dropped in traditional leagues. Names like George Kittle, Tyler Kroft or Ed Dickson can be picked up to replace Eifert in such a case.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE
    Posted 10/11/17 5:24pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) is scheduled to undergo season-ending back surgery Thursday, Oct. 12, and will be sidelined for four to six months, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Tyler Kroft likely will be the starting tight end for the Bengals for the rest of the season and has played well over the last few weeks. He can be a No. 2 tight end in most fantasy leagues and can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end against certain opponents.

  • A.J. Green - WR
    Posted 10/10/17 6:41pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green earned the highest passer rating for all receivers when pressed at the line of scrimmage in Week 5 at 153.3, per NFL Next Gen Stats.

    Huddle Up: To put that number into some perspective, 158.3 is considered a perfect passer rating in the NFL. The Miami Dolphins' Jarvis Landry came in second at 129.2. It's more proof Green is about as good as it gets at receiver and disproves the notion the angular 29-year-old isn't strong enough to beat physical coverage. He's obviously an every-week starter in fantasy.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 10/8/17 6:23pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill rushed four times for 16 yards while RB Giovani Bernard rushed twice for two yards with two catches for 30 yards in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Hill and Bernard are well behind Joe Mixon for touches in the Cincinnati backfield, as the rookie had 15 rushes for 51 yards and a touchdown. As such, they're only worth using in the deepest of fantasy leagues right now. Cincinnati is off in Week 6 before traveling to Pittsburgh in Week 7.

  • Brandon LaFell - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 6:23pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell posted five receptions for 32 yards on eight targets in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: LaFell was limited by a knee during the week, but he didn't seem to have any ill effects of the injury during the game, which was played in rainy conditions, too. That's a good sign, but he still is doing nothing. His 32 yards on Sunday were a season high and he has zero touchdowns through five games, so that tells you a little something about his fantasy value going forward.

  • A.J. Green - WR
    Posted 10/8/17 6:21pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green racked up seven receptions for 189 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: The highlight of the afternoon was a 77-yard touchdown reception, vindication after he lost a fumble and helped contribute on two other turnovers. He showed why he remains an elite fantasy receiver, playing well despite rainy conditions for most of the game. You'll need to make alternate plans in Week 6, as the team is on a bye.

  • Joe Mixon - RB
    Posted 10/8/17 6:20pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 15 times for 51 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't a bad performance for the rookie, as the Bills have been stout against the run this season. The rookie is clearly the top banana in Cincinnati right now, as he had 15 total touches to just four for Jeremy Hill and four for Giovani Bernard. The Bengals are off in Week 6 before returning in Week 7 on the road against the Steelers.

  • Andy Dalton - QB
    Posted 10/8/17 5:54pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 22 of his 36 pass attempts for 328 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Week 5 game against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: After a shaky start, Dalton has pieced together a few solid outings. He has 614 passing yards over the past two games with seven touchdown passes and two interceptions over the past three outings. He has re-emerged as a top-end QB2 or decent bye-week replacement in most fantasy leagues. The Bengals are off in Week 6 before heading to Pittsburgh in Week 7.

  • John Ross - WR
    Posted 10/7/17 5:04pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) will once again be out of the lineup for Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Ross has a bye in Week 6, so hopefully this gives him time to get that knee in shape. The offense in Cincinnati has been horrid, so you may want to avoid Ross for the time being.

  • Tyler Kroft - TE
    Posted 10/6/17 2:20pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Kroft (knee, neck) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Kroft recorded 68 yards and two touchdowns last week and appears to be a reliable target for Andy Dalton. He will be facing a Buffalo Bills defense that plays well against tight ends, but he could be a low-end No. 1 tight end or a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE
    Posted 10/6/17 2:08pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 6, and has been ruled out for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Eifert was expected to miss several weeks because of his back injury, so owners will need to check on his status next week. Tyler Kroft has played well in his place and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

  • Tyler Eifert - TE
    Posted 10/5/17 2:22pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Eifert likely will miss this week and could miss more time because of his injury. Tyler Kroft has been playing well over the last few weeks and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues or a bye week replacement.

  • Brandon LaFell - WR
    Posted 10/5/17 2:49pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: LaFell has not been a great fantasy option for owners in the last two weeks but likely will hold onto his starting job. Owners in all leagues should be able to find better options and can avoid LaFell.

  • Tyler Kroft - TE
    Posted 10/5/17 3:00pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Kroft (knee, neck) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Kroft has been a solid player for the Bengals since replacing Tyler Eifert over the last few weeks. He will be facing a solid Buffalo Bills defense but can still be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

  • Brandon LaFell - WR
    Posted 10/4/17 2:06pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: LaFell has only recorded 22 yards combined in his last two games and has only been targeted five times in those games. Owners in all leagues should be able to find better options and can avoid LaFell.

  • Tyler Kroft - TE
    Posted 10/4/17 2:14pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Kroft (knee, neck) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Kroft recorded 68 yards and two touchdowns in Week 4 and will continue to have a solid role in the passing game while Tyler Eifert is sidelined. He will be facing a solid Buffalo Bills defense but can still be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some deeper leagues.

  • Jeremy Hill - RB
    Posted 10/1/17 1:21pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill rushed for 16 yards on six carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Hill has been passed by Joe Mixon on the depth chart and likely will continue to see limited touches in games. He should be avoided in all fantasy leagues unless he receives a bigger role.

  • Joe Mixon - RB
    Posted 10/1/17 1:16pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed for 29 yards on 17 carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 4. He also caught four passes for 19 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Mixon has become the leading running back for the Bengals but did not have much success against the Browns. He will continue to see a significant amount of touches moving forward and can be a No. 2 fantasy running back against the Buffalo Bills next week.

  • Andy Dalton - QB
    Posted 10/1/17 1:14pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton went 25-for-30 for 286 yards and four touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns in Week 4. He also rushed for 29 yards on four carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Dalton struggled during the first three weeks but had a breakout game against the Browns. He will be facing a tougher Buffalo Bills defense next week but can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

  • A.J. Green - WR
    Posted 10/1/17 1:35pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green caught five passes for 63 yards and one touchdown against the Cleveland Browns in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Green has caught at least five passes in every game this season and has caught a touchdown pass in each of the last two games. He can be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy receiver next week against the Buffalo Bills.

  • Tyler Kroft - TE
    Posted 10/1/17 1:31pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Kroft caught six passes for 68 yards and two touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Kroft has been in the starting lineup with Tyler Eifert sidelined but this was the first game that Kroft was a big factor in the passing game. He could see more targets next week against the Buffalo Bills and may be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 10/1/17 1:26pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard caught three passes for 67 yards and one touchdown against the Cleveland Browns in Week 4. He also rushed for 12 yards on three carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Bernard is being used mostly in the passing game and has become a reliable target for Andy Dalton. He can be a solid flex option in point-per-reception leagues most weeks because of his role in the passing game.

  • Giovani Bernard - RB
    Posted 9/29/17 5:39pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (thigh) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Bernard likely will receive limited snaps with Joe Mixon taking over as the team's main running back. He should still be involved in the passing game and could be a flex option in some point-per-reception leagues.

  • Brandon LaFell - WR
    Posted 9/29/17 5:42pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: LaFell was targeted only two times in Week 3 and has posted only 59 yards over three games. He likely will continue to be a starting receiver for the Bengals but can be avoided in all leagues.

  • Brandon LaFell - WR
    Posted 9/28/17 1:21pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: LaFell appears to have a good chance to play in Week 4, but owners will know more about his status later in the week. LaFell was limited to one pass for five yards last week and has not posted more than 30 yards in any of the three games in 2017. Owners in all leagues should be able to find better options to use and can avoid LaFell.
