2015 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Cincinnati Bengals
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Bengals have been a fixture in the playoffs the last few seasons. We donā??t see a change in that this season. The defense is a top-five unit and the offense does enough to get this team plenty of wins. Expect more of the same this year. But until the Bengals get better play at quarterback during the playoffs, this team wonā??t do much in the postseason. It could be a make or break year for a lot of people on this team as the franchise wants more during the playoffs this year.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Running back Jeremy Hill had a big rookie season, emerging as the starter for the Bengals. But remember, he didnā??t start from day one last year, so his numbers can improve from last year. Hill will be the starter in this run-first offense, giving him plenty of touches on a weekly basis. He has a chance to be an elite fantasy back this season. The only thing holding him back from even bigger numbers is below average reception totals at running back. Until he improves those reception totals, Hill will be just outside that elite group of fantasy backs.
FANTASY DUD
You pretty much know what to expect from quarterback Andy Dalton at this point of his career. Heā??ll give you some big games but disappear in others. He is a tough player to count on for fantasy teams, so donā??t expect a sudden change this year. The Bengals still lack a top No. 2 receiver and play more of a run-first offense. This hurts Daltonā??s overall numbers. Plus, Dalton seems to be on the hot seat to produce better this year, especially in the playoffs. This could result in him pressing a little more and making more mistakes. Please donā??t count on Dalton to be anything more than a No. 2 for fantasy teams.

Team Notes

Feb 04, 07:33 PM Cincinnati Bengals CB Darqueze Dennard (shoulder) should be ready for the start of training camp this offseason. Dennard is recovering from a torn labrum he suffered in late November.
Feb 03, 07:23 PM 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.
Feb 02, 05:23 PM 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.
Feb 02, 01:03 AM 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.

Jan 30, 02:43 PM 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.
