Bengals | A.J. Green targeted heavily before injury

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 09:21:48 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green saw a 32.3-percent target share in Weeks 1 through 10 before he was lost for the season with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: Much of Green's heavy involvement had to do with the prolonged absence of Tyler Eifert as well as the struggles of the running game and the departure of Marvin Jones as well as Mohamed Sanu. Owners should expect the target share to fall back down closer to the 25-percent range - more typical for elite receivers - following the return of Eifert as well as the additions of John Ross and Joe Mixon. He remains firmly in the WR1 conversation, however.

Bengals | Marvin Lewis has high praise for Joe Mixon

Thu, 13 Jul 2017 17:58:04 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis admitted that RB Joe Mixon is "off the charts talent-wise," just from the brief time they have spent together on the football field. "Big, fast, catch, run, see, smart -- and he's 20-year-old kid. He's as smart as a whip. You know, I mean, those things are fun. And I keep reminding everybody, he's a 20-year-old kid. Keep understanding that. Let Joe continue to grow and develop as we go."

Fantasy Tip: There's no question about Mixton's talent level, as it was only off-the-field issues that pushed him into the second round of this year's draft. However, it may be hard to lean on him for consistent production in his rookie season, considering the other talented running backs on Cincinnati's roster. At the same time, Giovani Bernard may miss the first few regular season games, which could provide a valuable opportunity for the former Oklahoma star.

Bengals | Joshua Malone standing out

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 09:07:17 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Joshua Malone is 6-3, 208 pounds and ran at 4.40 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine. His size/speed ratio was evident on the practice field during the Bengals OTAs and minicamps. "He showed us what we thought he was. He's big and he's fast and he has a good natural feel for the game. He's learning how to run our routes and do things our way like any of them are - especially new guys. But he has some real ability," receivers coach James Urban said.

Bengals | Jeremy Hill to remain involved

Fri, 07 Jul 2017 18:35:44 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill is "going to get some carries" and will remain a factor near the goal line, according to Geoff Hobson of

Fantasy Tip: The assumption is that Joe Mixon will eventually take control of Cincinnati's backfield, but Hill could have something to say about that. Mixon is without a doubt the better long-term option, but Hill could still be a flex play this season.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell likely will make team

Fri, 07 Jul 2017 13:26:24 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell likely will make the 53-man roster this season because it would leave at least $3 million of dead money on the salary cap if he was released, in the opinion of's Katherine Terrell. The Bengals also like that LaFell has a mentor-like relationship with WR A.J. Green.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell should continue to be one of the starting receivers for the Bengals in 2017 but could lose some targets because of the younger receivers on the team. He posted 862 yards and six touchdowns this past season and could be a No. 4 or No. 5 fantasy receiver if he can post similar numbers.

Bengals | A.J. Green focused on winning

Sat, 01 Jul 2017 19:07:07 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green said he wouldn't mind seeing fewer targets this season if it means the other receivers are contributing and the team is winning.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Green does see a few less targets, his role as Andy Dalton's go-to receiver isn't changing any time soon. He is a safe bet to deliver WR1 production again in 2017.

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 20:10:48 -0700
