Impending free-agent WR A.J. Green (ankle) made it clear Monday, Dec. 30, that his preference is to remain with the Cincinnati Bengals. 'If something should get done, then I'm here. I want to be here. I think they want me here. We'll see what happens,' Green told reporters.
Huddle Up: Green has played a total of nine games over the last two seasons, including none in 2019 after suffering an ankle injury during the team's first training camp practice. He showed the ability to play at a high level when he was on the field in 2018, but there's also plenty of recent evidence to suggest his body may not be able to withstand the rigors of an NFL season anymore. Considering Green wants to return, expect Cincinnati to get a somewhat highly incentivized deal done with him before the start of free agency.

Cleveland Browns TE Tyler Eifert (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Eifert has posted at least 40 yards in each of the last three games but is still not a big part of the passing game. He can be avoided in fantasy leagues if better tight ends are available.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Eifert has caught 11 passes over the last three games and is coming off one of his better games of the season. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals CB William Jackson III (shoulder) and WR Stanley Morgan (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 26. DT Geno Atkins (rest), TE Tyler Eifert (rest), CB Darqueze Dennard (knee), CB Tony McRae (concussion) and OG John Miller (concussion) practiced in full.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton said he hopes to be the starting quarterback for a team next season.
Huddle Up: Dalton will be a free agent this offseason and could find a starting job during free agency. He has played well at times during his career but probably will only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he is a starter next season.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 25. The Bengals did not hold a practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Eifert has been playing better over the last few weeks and has been targeted 17 times over the last three games. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: The Bengals have carried him on the roster all season long even though he has yet to play a snap. Cincinnati will close the season out against the Cleveland Browns with Tyler Boyd, John Ross and Alex Erickson soaking up the bulk of the reps at receiver.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert ended up with four receptions for 57 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Eifert had his most complete game of the season, showing what he is capable of doing when he is healthy. He can be a dynamic red-zone threat when he is on the field, but he cannot seem to stay healthy for long chunks of time. The Bengals wrap up the season against the Cleveland Browns in Week 17.

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross ended up with six receptions for 84 yards on 13 targets in Week 16 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Ross had his most receiving yardage since Sept. 15, and his most catches since Week 1. He certainly picked a good time to break back out. He'll look to finish up strong in Week 17 against the Cleveland Browns.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd rolled up nine receptions for 128 yards and two touchdowns on 15 targets in Week 16 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Boyd was outstanding in this one, and surprisingly helped people to a fantasy championship. He had several big performances this season, but none bigger than this one. The Bengals wrap up their season in Week 17 against the visiting Cleveland Browns.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 21 times for just 50 yards in Week 16 against the Miami Dolphins while adding two grabs for 23 yards.
Huddle Up: Mixon was disappointing in what should have been a favorable fantasy matchup, but instead it was the passing game that shined through instead. Mixon will look to finish up strong in Week 17 against the visiting Cleveland Browns.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 33-of-56 passes for 396 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 16 against the Miami Dolphins and he also ran for a two-point conversion.
Huddle Up: This is why you pay attention to non-playoff teams with favorable matchups. Dalton wasn't a stud all season, even getting benched for a time, but he won gambling fantasy owners a championship with this performance. The Bengals wrap up their season against the Cleveland Browns in Week 17.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (illness) is active for the team's Week 16 game, but his role is uncertain since he has been dealing with an illness, according to Bengals.com's Marisa Contipelli.
Huddle Up: Mixon has been playing well over the last few weeks but may be a risky option since he may not receive his normal workload. He probably should still be a starting option in leagues, but fantasy players could consider other options if available.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon has rushed for 136 yards and a 146 yards, respectively, in his last two games. He faces the Miami Dolphins in Week 16, and the Dolphins are allowing the second-most rushing yards per game this season.
Huddle Up: Mixon has been a different back in the second half of the season, and he has run for at least 79 yards in five of his last six games. He will have RB1 upside against one of the worst run defenses in the league.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Eifert has caught at least five passes in only two games this season and only one game of at least 50 yards. He probably should be avoided in fantasy leagues this week.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 20, and has been ruled out for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Green probably will miss the entire 2019 season because of the ankle injury and is a disappointment to fantasy players. Tyler Boyd should be a starting option in fantasy leagues, while John Ross could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (calf) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 20, and will carry no injury designation into Week 16.
Huddle Up: After averaging 23.8 touches per game over his last six outings and topping 100 rushing yards three times in that span, Mixon has been an RB1 over the season's second half and is a no-doubt starter Sunday in Miami.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: Eifert has posted decent numbers over the last few games but has posted at least five catches in only two games in 2019. Fantasy players should be able to find better options and can keep Eifert on the bench.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: Green probably will miss the final two games of the season and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (rest) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: Eifert has often sat out or been limited early in the week due to rest. He's a risky, low-floor TE2 in most matchups, but his touchdown potential increases this week against the Miami Dolphins.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green said he didn't like the idea of the franchise tag, but he wouldn't sit out to avoid playing under it.
Huddle Up: Green is likely to miss this entire season with an ankle and foot injury. He'll be 32 next season and has a messy quarterback situation. It's hard to see him being taken higher than a WR3 in drafts.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) met with a foot specialist Monday, Dec. 16, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Green's availability for the final two games is uncertain at this point. Fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation but should not count on Green playing this season.

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross posted two receptions for 24 yards on three targets in Week 15 against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Ross should only be treated as a WR5 in fantasy leagues for the final two regular season games.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd finished with three catches for 26 yards in Week 15 against the New England Patriots while totaling seven targets.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon finished with 25 rushes for 136 yards in Week 15 against the New England Patriots while adding three grabs for 20 yards.
Huddle Up: Mixon has back-to-back 100-yard rushing performances for the first time this season, which has been a nice surprise for fantasy owners after he hit triple digits just once in the first 12 outings.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 17-of-31 passes for 151 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions in Week 15 against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Well that's no good. One of the picks went the other way for six, too. Despite the poor day he could be a sleeper for some in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 16 in Miami.

The Cincinnati Bengals have not ruled out having WR A.J. Green (ankle) play in Week 16 or Week 17 of the regular season, despite the team's record.
Huddle Up: Green has reportedly looked good in practice but has not played at all this season and has nothing to gain from playing in the Bengals' final two games, with the team having been mathematically eliminated from playoff contention long ago. Tyler Boyd will continue to be Cincinnati's top receiving option while Green is sidelined and may be the only Bengals player worthy of starting in fantasy leagues.
