According to multiple reports, the Bengals have agreed to a 3-year deal with S Vonn Bell. The former Saint joins a secondary that returns both starters at safety: Shawn Williams and Jessie Bates. Cincinnati's primary slot CB Darqueze Dennard, however, left for Jacksonville in free agency this offseason. We'd bet on that role being at least part of the plan for Bell with the Bengals -- and perhaps his primary job. We'll keep an eye out for word from the coaches as we move into 2020 IDP rankings time.

Bengals S Shawn Williams (thigh) is active for today's game against the Ravens. He barely practiced this week while dealing with the injury and carries re-injury risk into the game, but he also figures to be busy. Consider the risk-reward as you decide whether to include Williams in your IDP lineup.

Bengals S Shawn Williams (thigh) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning for a limited Friday workout. We'll check his status Sunday morning, but Williams looks risky for IDP lineups. Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports that Williams is expected to play, at least.

Bengals S Shawn Williams (concussion) is active for tonight's game against the Chiefs. He's not a strong IDP candidate and doesn't move the needle for the team D in 1 of the league's worst matchups for team-D scoring.

Bengals S Shawn Williams (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Vikings. He returned to a full practice Friday after being limited the 1st 2 days. Williams is merely a fringe IDP option anyway in a low-upside matchup.

Bengals S Shawn Williams left Saturday's game after suffering a nasty-looking right elbow injury. The team ruled him out for the game. We'll see about the specific diagnosis.

The Bengals on Tuesday announced a 4-year contract extension for S Shawn Williams. That's significant because Williams has started just 4 games across 3 seasons in Cincinnati, all of them last year. But he's a big part of why the team let S Reggie Nelson walk (to Oakland -- though he probably flew) in free agency. The 25-year-old Williams stands 6' and 210 pounds. He defensed a pass in 4 straight games late last season, including his 2nd INT. He'll likely crack the top 30 DBs when our 2016 fantasy football projections come out.

Bengals rookie S Shawn Williams sits behind George Iloka on the depth chart but impressed with his work Saturday night.  While Iloka sat out with a wrist injury, Williams tallied 10 tackles, double what anyone else on the team produced.  Williams rotated in with Taylor Mays -- who started -- early, but took nearly all the snaps from the mid-1st quarter on.  The team website reports that Williams has also impressed in practice recently, including INTs on consecutive days.  Iloka will reportedly return soon with some sort of brace on his wrist.  Don't be surprised if Williams pushes him for the job next to Reggie Nelson, though.  If Williams gets into the lineup, he'll carry intriguing IDP upside.
