Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (non-injury) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.

Footballguys view: Green is going to be limited all year long, especially on Wednesdays. He had a big game last week and Fantasy GMs are wondering if they can now trust him going forward.

  Bengals | John Ross asked for trade    Tue Oct 20, 09:51 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross approached the team about a trade. Ross is in the last year of his rookie deal and seeking a fresh start.

Footballguys view: Things just haven't gone well for Ross in Cincinnati. He's been hurt most of his pro career having played just 26 games in four years. Ross has been sick (illness in Week 5) or a healthy scratch for all but three games in 2020. He did play in Week 6 but only got on the field for one snap. We'll see if Ross gets traded away but the Bengals likely won't get much in return.

  Bengals | Tyler Boyd has mediocre showing    Sun Oct 18, 07:01 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd posted five receptions for 54 yards on eight targets in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Footballguys view: Boyd wasn't a high volume target with AJ Green returning to playable form today. He's still a low ceiling PPR WR3/Flex but now there are more mouths to feed in this pass offense heading into a matchup with Cleveland.

  Bengals | A.J. Green just misses triple digits    Sun Oct 18, 06:49 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green racked up eight receptions for 96 yards on 11 targets in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Footballguys view: Green is back in the fantasy relevant zone, although he'll face a Browns defense that shut him down earlier in the season. He had his best game of the year by far even though he came in with a hamstring injury. He should at least be rostered to see if this is a trend and Green just needed some time to warm up.

  Bengals | Tee Higgins hits triple digits    Sun Oct 18, 06:43 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tee Higgins posted career highs with six receptions and 125 yards in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts on eight targets.

Footballguys view: Even with AJ Green having a revival and being part of the Bengals pass offense today, Higgins was still the top downfield threat. He'll be in lineups next week against Cleveland.

  Bengals | Joe Burrow goes over 300 yards    Sun Oct 18, 06:30 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow completed 25-of-39 passes for 313 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts and he rushed for two yards and a score.

Footballguys view: Burrow and the Bengals squandered a 21-0 lead in this one. While his fantasy result was solid and surprising against a Colts defense that had been frustrating lesser quarterbacks, it was still a bitter loss heading into a matchup with Cleveland. Consider Burrow a decent streamer/superflex next week on the basis of continued high volume.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Green is going to play but hopefully you dropped him in your redraft league. It would be great to see him get back to old form this year, but it looks unlikely.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 15.

  Bengals | A.J. Green isn't seeking trade    Thu Oct 15, 01:12 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) said Thursday, Oct. 15, he is frustrated with how his season has gone so far, but added that he wants to remain with the team. 'I'm just happy to be back out there,' Green said, via Ben Baby of ESPN.com. 'I know it's going to come over time. . . . I don't want them to force me anything.'

Footballguys view: Green wants to finish his career with the Bengals but who knows if that's going to happen. He's banged up and no longer looks like the player he used to be. We doubt the Bengals would get much in return if Green was on the trade block.

  Bengals | Sam Hubbard to miss time    Mon Oct 12, 06:29 PM

Cincinnati Bengals DE Sam Hubbard (elbow) may be sidelined for several weeks because of the elbow injury he suffered during the Week 5 game.

Footballguys view: The Bengals lost two key pieces of the strength of their defense - the line - and they were already a bottom half defense to begin with. This should get more snaps for Carlos Dunlap, who was recently demoted, and Carl Lawson, who has had the look of a breakout player at times this year.

  Bengals | Four receptions for Tee Higgins    Sun Oct 11, 04:44 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tee Higgins caught four passes for 62 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5. He was targeted eight times during the game.

Footballguys view: A.J. Green left this game with an injury and was going through the motions before that. Higgins is clearly the #1 outside receiver and a high ceiling WR3/Flex play going forward.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon has solid outing    Sun Oct 11, 04:37 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed for 59 yards on 24 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5. He also caught six passes for 35 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Mixon at least bailed you out with six catches in PPR leagues in a hopeful sign that he has passed Giovani Bernard in the pecking order for targets. Mixon's floor is tolerable, but his ceiling is unlikely to come into view against the Colts next week.

  Bengals | Joe Burrow struggles in Week 5    Sun Oct 11, 04:21 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow went 19-for-30 for 183 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5.

Footballguys view: Burrow took a ton of hits and came back to reality after getting his first win last week against Jacksonville. He hit his fantasy floor and might not be a suitable QB1 going forward until matchups get easier. They won't next week against the Colts.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the Week 5 game and is considered doubtful to return.

Footballguys view: This will give you permission to drop him from your roster - even in dynasty - if you haven't already. It has been sad to watch the ghost of AJ Green this year and we'll prefer to remember him as he was before the run of injuries stole something that he never got back.
