Jeremy Hill Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2022

Most Recent Shark Bites

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) was in a walking boot at Friday’s practice, according to insider Geoff Hobson. ESPN’s Bob Holtzman confirms that Green is out for this weekend’s game against the Panthers. Fantasy owners should be preparing for a multi-game absence. Mohamed Sanu will serve as the Bengals’ top WR while Green is out. Playing the best football of his career, Sanu is a viable WR3 against the Panthers this week. Brandon Tate and Dane Sanzenbacher will serve as the #2 and #3 WRs but would be desperation fantasy plays. RBs Gio Bernard and Jeremy Hill should combine for 30+ touches on Sunday.

Bengals OC Hue Jackson was happy with how the backfield rotation worked in Week 2. "It’s how the game is flowing and how the guys are flowing in the game," Jackson said. "And the first game I didn’t do it as well. I’ll be the first to tell you I could have done it better. But last week I think I improved in that area, making sure (Hill) was out there and he made some plays."  In the opener, Jeremy Hill played just 15% of the snaps and totaled 4 touches.  In Week 2, those numbers jumped to 46% and 17.  Gio Bernard still played 64% of the snaps and touched the ball a whopping 32 touches.  Bernard and Hill won't combine for 49 touches very often, but this offense looks like it'll revolve around its RBs.  The 63-35 split from Week 2 is what we should expect going forward.  That's enough to keep Bernard in RB1 range and make Hill a matchup starter.

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill played just 10 snaps in Sunday's opener, finishing with 4 carries for 19 yards.  HC Marvin Lewis explained on Monday that the team didn't believe Hill was a good fit for the game plan against the Ravens.  The Bengals went with a bunch of shotgun, spread looks.  That suits RB Gio Bernard much better than Hill.  Lewis said he told Hill that he'll be "playing more going forward."  The rookie is still worth stashing in fantasy but can't be trusted in starting lineups yet.

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill carried 20 times for 90 yards in Thursday's preseason finale.  He added another 70 yards on 6 catches.  Hill suffered an elbow injury near the end of the 1st half but returned for the 1st series of the 2nd half.  We don't usually see players expected to play significant regular-season roles get this much work in the 4th exhibition, so Hill's night was a bit surprising.  Most reports out of Cincinnati this summer have had the rookie looking at 8-12 carries per game behind starter Gio Bernard.  Until we have a surer idea of Hill's role, though, he'll be a risky fantasy starter.

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill tweeted Saturday night that the shoulder he hurt in the 2nd preseason game is "fine."  HC Marvin Lewis seemed to back that up in talking to reporters Sunday morning, when he expressed no concern for the status of his rookie RB.  You can go on drafting Hill as you would have before.

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill left Saturday's 2nd preseason game with a shoulder injury after carrying 3 times for 16 yards.  Hill shared 1st-team work with Giovani Bernard but watched Bernard take the 1-yard TD carry.  We'll see how significant the shoulder injury is.  If it keeps the rookie out long, BenJarvus Green-Ellis would likely step back in as the Bernard complement.

Bengals insider Geoff Hobson believes RB Jeremy Hill could see around 200 carries this season.  RBs Gio Bernard and BenJarvus Green-Ellis combined for 390 carries last year.  Bernard will see more than the 170 he finished the 2013 campaign with, but Cincy also figures to run more under OC Hue Jackson.  That means Hill could approach Green-Ellis' 2013 total of 220.  The rookie is flying under the fantasy radar right now with an ADP in the 12th round.

Bengals rookie RB Jeremy Hill took the 2nd snap with the 1st-team offense in Tuesday's OTA session.  (Gio Bernard got the 1st.)  We don't read much into these May workouts, but it's interesting that Hill is already running ahead of BenJarvus Green-Ellis.  Teams usually give the veteran the early nod, but it looks like the Bengals aren't messing around with BGE and his 3 straight sub-4.0 yards-per-carry averages.  We're fully expecting Hill to emerge as the "thunder" to Bernard's "lightning" this season.  Green-Ellis could even end up getting released.  He's due $2.3 million in 2014.

The Bengals made a surprising 2nd-round move on Friday night, not just by grabbing a RB, but by selecting LSU's Jeremy Hill over Ohio State's Carlos Hyde.  RBs coach Kyle Caskey explained the decision: "The way he played in his offense at LSU, and the pro-style offense they had and what they asked him to do. He stepped up and was going against a tough SEC, downhill, the stuff that we like to do. And when it came to pass protection, he actually stepped in there. He was coached to do that and he looked really tough, not that the others guys didn't. He really just stepped above that when it came to being a complete player and the type of runner we're looking for as well, and playing against the competition he played."  Of course, Hill won't be a 3-down back in Cincinnati with RB Gio Bernard on the roster.  But Hill could take over BenJarvus Green-Ellis' "hammer" role as early as 2014.

The Bengals selected RB Jeremy Hill with the 55th pick of the draft.  That sound you hear is the air coming out of RB Gio Bernard's breakout balloon.  Hill is a rocked-up 6'1, 233-pounder with sneaky quickness.  He's essentially a souped-up version of BenJarvus Green-Ellis. BGE's days in Cincy might be numbered.  The Bengals are clearly planning on sticking with a committee backfield with Hill and Bernard.
