Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 21.
Huddle Up: Eifert has been able to stay healthy this season but has not been a big part of the passing game. He can be benched this week if fantasy players have better options.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 21.
Huddle Up: Green is considered day-to-day but likely will miss at least one more game because of the injury. Fantasy players in all leagues should avoid him until he returns to the practice field.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: Tate will need to pass the concussion tests before he is allowed to play, so his status for Week 12 is uncertain. He has posted at least 55 yards in four of the last five games, but fantasy players may want to look for other players because of uncertain status.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: Eifert has been held to under 30 yards in nine of his 10 games this season and probably can be avoided in fantasy leagues this week.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) will not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 20, and is still considered day-to-day, according to head coach Zac Taylor.
Huddle Up: Green is still dealing with his ankle injury, so his status for Week 12 is uncertain. Fantasy players should monitor his participation this week to have a better idea of his status. He would be a risky option if he is active this week.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd caught one of his three targets but finished with no yards receiving in Week 11 versus the Oakland Raiders. However, he did add one rush for 10 yards.
Huddle Up: Whatever ceiling Boyd was lowered considerably the moment Andy Dalton was benched in favor of Ryan Finley during the team's Week 9 bye. It won't always be this bad for him - he had six receptions for 62 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 10 - but it's also clear he is no longer a must-start. He'll be a dicey WR3 at best in Week 12 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate (undisclosed) hauled in four of his six targets for 56 yards - all team highs - before leaving with an undisclosed injury in Week 11 versus the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: Tate was removed from the game on a stretcher in the fourth quarter after taking a shot to the head and/or neck area, but he tweeted a few hours later that he was "good. It remains to be seen whether or not he'll be able to make it back in time for Week 12, but he'd be a low-upside start in fantasy against the Pittsburgh Steelers - especially with Ryan Finley as his quarterback.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon ran 15 times for 86 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Oakland Raiders. He also caught one of his three targets for 17 yards.
Huddle Up: Cincinnati committed to giving Mixon more work during the team's Week 8 defeat to the Los Angeles Rams and hasn't stopped since. Over the last three games, the third-year back has amassed 266 yards on 62 carries to go along with seven catches and two total touchdowns. He'll be a tough sell as an RB2 in Week 12, however, as the Pittsburgh Steelers have the personnel to keep him in check.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Ryan Finley went 13-of-31 for 115 yards with an interception in Week 11 against the Oakland Raiders. He also ran for 47 yards on three carries and lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Finley also took five sacks. Keeping in mind he is working behind the bad offensive line and doesn't have A.J. Green at his disposal, Finley hasn't looked the part of an NFL quarterback through two career starts, completing only 47.5 percent of his throws. Even in two-quarterback leagues, it's tough to make a case to start the rookie. He definitely does not belong anywhere close to a starting lineup in fantasy as the Bengals host the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 12.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.
Huddle Up: Eifert played well a few weeks ago but has been quiet for most of the season. He probably should be avoided in all leagues this week.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) on Friday, Nov. 15, was ruled out of the team's Week 11 game against the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: The sad beat goes on for Green and the Bengals, and we move another game closer to not seeing Green for the entire 2019 season. And, as we've mentioned for weeks now, go ahead and dump Green if you don't have an IR slot or need the roster space.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 14.
Huddle Up: Eifert had a big game a few weeks ago but has not been a big factor in the passing game for much of the season. Fantasy players probably can find better options for their lineup and can avoid Eifert.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 13.
Huddle Up: Green was expected to return last week but suffered a setback with his ankle injury, which makes his status for Week 11 uncertain. Fantasy players can monitor the situation during the week but may want to use other receivers in their lineups.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 13.
Huddle Up: Eifert picked up his second touchdown of the season last week but has posted 20 yards or less in four of the last five games. He will see some targets this week, but fantasy players in most leagues can find better options for their lineups.

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) has been cleared to return to practice Wednesday, Nov. 13, and will be one of the players designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list.
Huddle Up: Ross probably is still a few weeks away from returning to the lineup but could have a solid role in the passing game when he plays again. Fantasy players could consider adding him if they have extra room on their bench.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) is 'day-to-day' and will see if he can run on his injured ankle without experiencing swelling on Wednesday, Nov. 13, according to head coach Zac Taylor.
Huddle Up: It's almost pointless anymore to speculate if and/or when Green is going to return, although owners can probably remain optimistic considering the team has yet to place him on the Reserve/Injured list. If he can somehow play this week, he'll return to a very favorable matchup against the Oakland Raiders. Stay tuned for updates.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Alex Erickson finished without a catch on two targets in Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Erickson exploded for 14 grabs, 234 yards and 21 targets in the two games before the bye, but apparently Ryan Finley doesn't jell with the receiver like Andy Dalton. It should be back to the waiver wire for Erickson if you took a chance on him after the bye.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert finished with two grabs for 20 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Eifert used to be a tremendous red-zone target before a bevy of injuries crushed his fantasy appeal. If he could stay healthy, he has the potential to be a strong fantasy option, but that's a huge 'if'. Treat him more as a low-end TE2 heading into Week 11 on the road against the Raiders.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate posted three receptions for 36 yards on six targets in Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Tate has three or more grabs in six straight outings while posting 50 or more receiving yards in five of the past six. He has emerged as a respectable WR5 in PPR fantasy play, with lesser appeal in standard leagues. The Bengals travel to meet the Raiders in Week 11.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd finished with six receptions for 62 yards on eight targets in Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Boyd has registered three or more catches in all nine of his games this season and he has 55 or more yards in each of the past three. He isn't someone to rely upon regularly for fantasy purposes in standard leagues, but he has been a decent enough WR4 or flex play in PPR play. The Bengals hit the road to face the Raiders in Week 11.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 30 times for a season-high 114 yards in Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens while adding two receptions for 37 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Mixon posted his first 100-yard game of the season, although he continues to look for that elusive first rushing score. The yardage total was his most since Dec. 16, 2018 against the Oakland Raiders, which is when he had his last rushing touchdowns. The Bengals are back at it in Week 11 at Oakland, and he remains more of a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option for that one.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Ryan Finley completed 16-of-30 passes for 167 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens while adding five runs for 22 yards in his first NFL start.
Huddle Up: Finley took the reins of the offense in place of veteran Andy Dalton, but the results were basically the same. He was sacked twice and he did very little in another blowout loss for the Bengals. They'll look for their first win in Oakland in Week 11, but Finley isn't even worth a look as a QB2 in most fantasy formats at this point.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) was able to return to the Week 10 game after missing some time because of a knee injury.
Huddle Up: Benard receives a handful of touches in each game but has not been a big factor in the offense. He can be avoided in all fantasy leagues unless Joe Mixon suffers an injury.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 10 game and is considered doubtful to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor the situation to see if Bernard will miss any more time because of the injury. Joe Mixon would receive almost all of the work at running back if Bernard misses time and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 10.
Huddle Up: Eifert posted 74 yards in his last game and could be a popular target for the team's new quarterback. He may not be a starting option this week because of the tough matchup but could be a starting option later in the season.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) on Friday, ONov. 8, was ruled out of Week 10 with a lingering ankle issue.
Huddle Up: Well, the early-week optimism coming out of the Bengals' bye week dissipated quickly as Green endured ankle swelling as he tried to return to practice. and now has been ruled out of another game with only seven remaining for the winless Bengals. Keep rostering Green if you've waited this long, but if you need the roster space, try to find a willing trade partner or simply cut your losses and move on.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 7.
Huddle Up: Eifert caught six passes for 74 yards in Week 8 and could be a popular target for Ryan Finley in his first career start. He can be a possible bye week replacement or low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.
