Fantasy Tip: One of Dalton's picks was deflected into the air by WR A.J. Green and returned for a touchdown, but the other was clearly his fault. The Bengals have an explosive offense, and Dalton could be a high-end QB2 worth using as a bye-week replacement. However, he needs to show a lot better than this.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu entered practice Wednesday, Aug. 19, in the slot in a three-wide formation. It was the first time he worked in the formation during camp. WRs A.J. Green and Marvin Jones were the starters.
Fantasy Tip: Sanu is competing with Jones for the starting job opposite Green, but it appears he is behind in the race for the job and/or the team likes his skillset better out of the slot. He remains a decent WR4 or flex option in leagues of 12 or more fantasy teams.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is angling to win the starting job opposite A.J. Green and it appears he has a leg up in the race. If he can start Week 1, he would be worth a look as a WR3/4 or flex fantasy option in most standard formats.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Nugent is dealing with a serious injury, but he should be fine for the start of the season. He plays for a team with a solid offense, but owners should be able to find better kickers to select in drafts.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (hamstring) was able to take part in his first practice in pads Wednesday, Aug. 12. He was running with the first team offense. "Feel good opening up really for the first time since I've been back in this thing," Jones said.
Fantasy Tip: Jones, who is challenging for a starting spot opposite A.J. Green, posted 10 touchdowns in 2013. If he can stay healthy and return to his 2013 form he could be quite the sleeper for fantasy football players on draft day.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Rex Burkhead will play a big role in the team's offense in 2015. Burkhead will be an excellent option as a slot receiver, as he creates tough matchups against opposing linebackers.
Fantasy Tip: Burkhead recently converted from a running back, and he could fill a major need in the Bengals' offense as a slot receiver. Owners should keep an eye on him and monitor his usage in the preseason.

Cincinnati Bengals QB A.J. McCarron (undisclosed) said he is considered day-to-day because of an undisclosed injury. McCarron said his current injury has nothing to do with the shoulder injury he had last season.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard and Hill have already proven they can coexist. Hill should do most of the running out of the backfield while Bernard contributes mainly in the passing game. Even with Hill succeeding last year, Bernard still gained more than 1,000 total yards and seven total touchdowns. Consider him a RB2 in PPR leagues again this year.

Cincinnati Bengals QB A.J. McCarron led a pair of scoring drives with the first-team offense during a scrimmage Saturday, Aug. 8. "I thought he was even better than last night," offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said. "Every time he completed a ball his confidence skyrocketed. It's a good opportunity for him to continue to grow."
Fantasy Tip: McCarron doesn't need to be drafted at this point, but if Andy Dalton were to miss any time, McCarron could be worth scooping up off waivers.

Fantasy Tip: It's still hard to judge how good Marvin Jones is. He scored 10 times in 2013, but missed all of last season with a broken ankle. A.J. Green will still be the top target in Cincinnati, but Jones could see his fair share of red zone targets. He seems to be underrated when healthy. He's worth a look as a low-end WR4 or high-end WR5.
