The Bengals rolled the dice on Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon with the 48th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. Mixon’s off-field transgression — he punched a woman in 2014 — caused him to drop in the draft and will continue to haunt him as a pro. But on the field, this is a 1st-round talent. Perhaps the best RB in the class. Mixon shows good patience, power and burst as a runner. And he’s a big-time weapon in the passing game. He exploded for 1,274 rushing yards on just 187 carries this past year and averaged a robust 6.8 yards per carry across 2 college seasons. Mixon added 65 total receptions for 894 yards (13.8 yards per catch) and 9 TDs. And he doesn’t turn 21 until July. Mixon joins a crowded backfield in Cincinnati alongside Jeremy Hill and Gio Bernard. But Hill has disappointed since his rookie season, while Bernard is rehabbing from his 2nd torn ACL. Mixon certainly has a shot — and might be the favorite — to lead the 2017 backfield in touches.

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Ravens. Rex Burkhead figures to operate as the feature back, making him a solid fantasy play.

The Bengals listed RB Jeremy Hill (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Cincinnati has mailed it in for the season and could sit the banged-up Hill in the meaningless finale. We're not expecting him to play much even if he's active. RB Rex Burkhead should lead the Bengals backfield in touches.

7:16pm EST 12/24/16

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill (knee) is active for tonight's game against the Texans. He entered the day questionable but makes for a fine fantasy start against a Houston D that plays the pass much tougher than the run.

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill ground out 111 yards and a score on 25 carries in Sunday's win over the Browns. None of his totes went for more than 11 yards, but he kept the offense on schedule with solid gains. Hill punched in a 1-yard TD in the 1st quarter and tacked on another 31 yards on 3 catches. He's now racked up 71 total touches in 3 games since RB Gio Bernard went down. Volume will keep Hill in the RB2 mix the rest of the way.

The forecast for today's Bengals-Browns game calls for 1-3 inches of snow and winds of 10-20 mph. We start to worry about the passing games when winds get over 15 mph, so this is a slight concern. Both teams figured to go run-heavy anyway, and the weather will only push them farther in that direction.

Bengals RB Gio Bernard tore his ACL in Sunday's loss to the Bills, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's done for the 2016 season and isn't a lock to be ready for the start of the 2017 campaign. Bernard turns just 25 in 2 days and just inked a new 4-year deal with Cincinnati this summer, so there's still plenty of long-term appeal here. His absence the rest of this season will mean an uptick in volume for RB Jeremy Hill. He's averaged 21 carries in 3 career games without Bernard.

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill is not listed on the Week 8 injury report. It's notable after he appeared to aggravate his chest/shoulder injury in the 4th quarter of last Sunday's game. Hill is evidently ready to go, though, for a plus matchup in London this weekend against a Redskins defense allowing 5.1 yards per carry to RBs.

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill aggravated his chest injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Browns. The team deemed him probable to return, but he never did. Cincinnati's 14-point lead might have had something to do with that. We'll keep an eye on Hill this coming week. He exploded for 168 yards and a score on just 9 carries before exiting.

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill (chest) is not listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. The chest issue isn’t a major concern. But a matchup with a tough Patriots run defense and a Pats offense that figures to have the Bengals playing from behind are certainly concerns. Hill is a TD-dependent RB3.

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill (chest) put in a full practice on Thursday. He'll play against the Patriots this weekend but will be a TD-dependent fantasy starter. He's averaging just 3.8 yards per carry through 5 games and has been held under 60 total yards 3 times.

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill (chest) practiced on Wednesday and was working with the 1st-team offense, according to insider Elise Jesse. It confirms that Hill is on track to play against the Patriots this weekend. But he'll be tough to trust in fantasy lineups in a game in which Cincinnati is a big underdog.

Bengals HC Marvin Lewis said Monday that he expects RB Jeremy Hill (chest) to practice on Wednesday. That presumably puts him on track to play against the Patriots this weekend. Hill wasn't doing much even before going down yesterday, carrying just 4 times in almost 3-and-a-half quarters of action. The New England matchup looks like more of a Gio Bernard game. Cincinnati opened as 8-point underdogs.

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill suffered a chest injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He was in obvious pain as he left the field. Cincinnati is calling Hill questionable to return.

Bengals insider Paul Dehner believes RB Jeremy Hill is in for a "huge year." Dehner has seen "serious focus, drive" from Hill after what he calls a disappointing 2015. Hill mustered just 3.6 yards per carry last year but still scored 12 total TDs to finish 14th among RBs in non-PPR points and 20th in PPR. He was a top 10 RB across formats as a rookie in 2014. Hill's 2016 ADP is sitting at RB19 in non-PPR leagues and RB24 in PPR.

New Bengals OC Ken Zampese confirmed that the offense will look very similar to what Hue Jackson ran in 2015. “They [fans] won’t notice anything different,” Zampese told Bengals.com. “We’ll do the same things that got us to this point. There will be some things that show up that may be different and highlight particular players. The offense is always driven by the skills of players and it’s a matter of how you get it to them. We have a couple of new pieces offensively, and I need to find out what those guys are, their skill set, and how to get them the ball.” Last year, only 4 teams posted a higher run rate than Cincinnati. So the news is particularly encouraging for Jeremy Hill and Gio Bernard. Andy Dalton also benefits from the promotion, as Zampese has been the Bengals QB coach for his entire career.

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill isn't listed on the team's Week 13 injury report.  It looks like he was removed from last week's game with that tweaked ankle only as a precaution.  Hill finished that one with season-highs in rushing yards (86) and yards per carry (5.4).  He's worth firing up as an RB2 against Cleveland's leaky run defense.

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill injured his ankle in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game.  He limped off and was deemed questionable to return.  Hill never got back on the field, but Cincinnati also had a big lead, so it might have been precautionary.  We'll update his status when we learn more.

Bengals OC Hue Jackson believes RB Jeremy Hill's time to lead the offense will come. "Jeremy's still our starting tailback," Jackson said. "Everybody has seen over the last couple games that Gio has got more carries, more opportunities than Jeremy. Well, eventually that's going to flip ... Eventually it will. It's not going to stay the same and it's not going to keep happening like it's happening. That's just people you play, defenses you face, opportunities come up and you've got to make the most of them, and that's what Gio has done."  Three of Cincinnati's first 5 opponents are stronger against the run than the pass, according to Football Outsiders' efficiency metrics.  That sets up better for space back Gio Bernard.  It sounds like Cincinnati is still committed to Hill as its lead ball-carrier when the matchup dictates a run-heavier attack.  But Hill will need to be better for that to remain the case.  He's averaging just 3.0 yards per carry compared to 5.5 for Bernard.

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill lost 2 fumbles in Sunday's game against the Chargers.  He was benched after the 2nd one in the 3rd quarter.  "We can't have a back fumbling the football," HC Marvin Lewis said. "Jeremy's a talented young player and we've got to keep the football. That wasn't part of his deal last year, and we can't let it creep in."  With Hill on the sideline, RB Gio Bernard ripped off 123 yards on 20 carries.  That has this backfield looking like a pure committee heading into Week 3.
