Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent WR Marvin Jones is excited to test the free-agent market this offseason. "I love Cincinnati, but at the same time I am a free agent," Jones said. "It wouldn't be good for me not to test the waters a little bit. It's just an exciting process." Jones does not want to give the Bengals a hometown discount as he prefers to approach free agency from all angles and hope an irresistible offer arises.
Fantasy Tip: Of course, Jones may be excited to see how much money he's offered from other teams, which is normal for a free agent. Jones may also look for a place where he can make No. 1 wide receiver money, but his production doesn't necessarily reflect that money. His fantasy value will obviously be impacted by if he moves or not, so stay tuned to his status over the coming months.

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Benglas TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) suffered an ankle sprain in the 2016 Pro Bowl. He simply needs rest and will be fine for all offseason activities.
Fantasy Tip: The Bengals can officially breathe a sigh of relief after a little bit of a scare from this year's Pro Bowl. Eifert is coming off a career year in which he scored 13 touchdowns. Eifert is comfortably in the TE1 conversation for next season's fantasy drafts.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (foot) did not suffer a break in his foot at the Pro Bowl Sunday, Jan. 31, but he is in a walking boot and plans to underdog furthet tests in Cincinnati to confirm he only has a bone bruise. He is likely to meet with a foot specialist when he returns to Cincinnati early this week.
Fantasy Tip: Eifert does not appear to have suffered a long-term injury which will affect him into training camp and the preseason. However, although it is just speculation, he could be forced to miss some time in organized team activities (OTAs) if he has a weeks-long injury.

Fantasy Tip: Eifert is a top-five consideration at the position in drafts next season.

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu could be targets for the New England Patriots this offseason, in the opinion of ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss. Reiss believes Jones' route-running ability would translate well in New England's offensive system, and that Sanu could draw interest as an alumnus of the Rutgers, a program for which the Patriots have high regard.
Fantasy Tip: Danny Amendola and Brandon LaFell have uncertain futures with the Patriots based on their 2016 contracts, as Reiss also notes, so they could definitely be in the wide receiver market this offseason. New England could also pursue the position through the draft, but Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman will remain their top two playmakers nonetheless.

Fantasy Tip: Jones will likely be the top free-agent priority, at least among their group of receivers, as he is coming off a career-high 816-yard season. Sanu has also shown flashes, but has not been as involved as Jones when Jones is healthy. Tate may be the odd man out and doesn't hold much fantasy value.

Fantasy Tip: Hill saw a drop in his rushing yards this season even though he had nearly the same amount of carries as last season. He finished the regular season with 794 yards and 11 touchdowns. Hill probably will split work with Giovani Bernard again next season and could be a middle-round option.
