Fantasy Tip: Eifert has missed most of the season because of his elbow injury and likely would not have a lot value if he is only able to return for a few games. Jermaine Gresham has been the team's starting tight end while Eifert has been out but is not a good option on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard is fully healthy but will lose some carries to Jeremy Hill. Bernard will cost $6,800 in FantasyScore this week, which may be a bit much for his first week back. There may be safer options out there for that price.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($5,800; 11.6% of your cap) is a solid play this week on FantasyScore as a flex option. Bernard ($6,800; 13.6%) should be avoided until he becomes a bigger part of the offense.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill is likely to get a bulk of the carries in Week 12 against the Houston Texans, according to beat writer Geoff Hobson, despite the return of RB Giovani Bernard (clavicle, hip). Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson indicated Wednesday, Nov. 19, that Bernard will be eased back into the process.
Fantasy Tip: If you're trying to decide between Bernard and Hill for FantasyScore purposes, Hill is the better play at $5,800 (or 11.6 percent of the cap). He is cheap than Bernard ($6,800 or 13.6 percent of the cap), and he is expected to see more touches.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (clavicle, hip) will be eased back into the lineup, offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said Wednesday, Nov. 19. "I think we've got to work him back into our process and how we do things. What will determined that is just how fast and how we think he is ready to go," Jackson said.
Fantasy Tip: Jeremy Hill has done a great job in Bernard's absence, making it easier for the team to keep the training wheels on Bernard as long as necessary. For FantasyScore purposes, avoid Bernard at $6,800 (or 13.6 percent of the cap) until he is 100 percent and playing without restrictions.
