Cincinnati Bengals franchise free-agent WR A.J. Green (ankle) has completely recovered from his ankle injury and is working out in Atlanta, according to head coach Zac Taylor.
Huddle Up: Green has only played nine games over the last two seasons, but he appears to be on track for the 2020 season. He is a risky option because of his injury history but can be a weekly starting option in all leagues if he is healthy.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton could remain with the team for the 2020 season, and 'all options are still on the table' for the quarterback, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
Huddle Up: Dalton has been the subject of trade rumors, but the Bengals continue to sit on the veteran quarterback. There is still a chance he is moved before the start of the season, but with Cincinnati expected to draft Joe Burrow with the No. 1, it seems unlikely Dalton would be starting if he is a still a Bengal come Week 1.

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals SS Vonn Bell will receive $11.5 million of the $18 million in his deal during the first two years. Not all of it is guaranteed, but he'll see $7 million in the first year.
Huddle Up: He missed three games last year, and he still ended up as the seventh-ranked defensive back in fantasy points. He should remain a rock-solid DB1 with his new club.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green received the franchise tag Monday, March 16.
Huddle Up: Green will be 32 when the season begins, and he has had constant injury issues the last three of the last four years. He'll be a low-end WR2 in PPR at best, but the WR3 label is optimal.

The Cincinnati Bengals are listening to trade offers for QB Andy Dalton, according to a source Saturday, March 14.
Huddle Up: Dalton would have zero fantasy appeal if he were to remain with the Bengals as the backup to presumed No. 1 draft pick QB Joe Burrow. He could be a high-end QB2 depending on his eventual landing spot, and he'd have a strong bye-week appeal in standard leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate (knee) has been cleared to resume all football-related activities, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Tate posted 575 yards and one touchdown in 12 games this past season and likely will serve as the No. 3 receiver for the Bengals if A.J. Green returns. He can be considered a late round option in fantasy drafts.

The Cincinnati Bengals are interested in extending the contract of WR A.J. Green, although ongoing discussions about a potential new collective bargaining agreement have stalled negotiations, according to multiple sources. If the team is unable to finalize a long-term deal by March 10, Green is likely to receive the franchise tag.
Huddle Up: Green, who will turn 32 in July, has expressed interest in remaining in Cincinnati and would be an elite receiving option for presumptive No. 1 draft pick Joe Burrow to work with, provided that he can stay healthy. However, the fact that he has played just 17 offensive snaps since October 2018 is a major concern, so he should be viewed as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 option for now.

The Cincinnati Bengals are interested in signing RB Joe Mixon to a contract extension, although continuing discussions about a possible new collective bargaining agreement have stalled negotiations. He is entering the final year of his current contract.
Huddle Up: Mixon, who will turn 24 in July, rushed for 1,137 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground in 2019, along with 35 catches for 287 yards and three receiving touchdowns. He should be viewed as a high-end RB2 option for next season's fantasy drafts.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) wasn't dealt at the trade deadline last fall, making it highly unlikely that the Bengals will let him walk in free agency, in the opinion of Pro Football Focus analyst Anthony Treash.
Huddle Up: It would certainly be a boon for presumptive No. 1 draft pick Joe Burrow to have Green as his top target, but also keep in mind that Green will turn 32 in July and has played a grand total of 17 offensive snaps since October of 2018. He's now a WR2/3 until proven otherwise on the field.

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent WR A.J. Green (foot) 'wants out of Cincinnati,' in the opinion of an NFC executive, and the executive believes Green would be a 'good fit' for the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Green has battled a variety of injuries in recent years, including last season's foot injury, but he has been one of the best receivers in the league when healthy. Despite the injury concerns, Green is worth a look as a high-end WR2.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton will work with the team this offseason to facilitate a trade., and according to CBS NFL analyst John Breech, the Chicago Bears rank as the top fit.
Huddle Up: We could definitely see the fit in the Windy City, where patience is running thin with Mitch Trubisky, but in fantasy terms Dalton is 90 percent likely to remain a QB2 wherever he lands.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton has been told by the Bengals that they will work to trade him.
Huddle Up: Dalton had a nice run in the fantasysphere, but it would have to be a tremendous situation for him to be anything more than a QB2.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard could be a cap casualty this offseason, according to Joe Goodberry of The Athletic. The Bengals would save $2.8 million in cap space by releasing Bernard.
Huddle Up: There was a point in his career when Bernard was a true complementary piece in the Cincinnati backfield and a solid flex option in PPR formats. With Joe Mixon now monopolizing the touches, Bernard will be no more than a handcuff if he remains with the Bengals.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green, a pending free agent, could receive the franchise tag from the Bengals this offseason. 'The franchise tag is not the best thing,' Green said in a TV interview. 'But like I said, I'm not turning down 18 million dollars. It just happens. When you run a business, you have to make difficult decisions. But I feel like when you put that on me, then that's what you're showing me, you only want me for one year. And I always play with a chip on my shoulder.'
Huddle Up: Green's situation will be one of the intriguing offseason storylines -- in fantasy and reality -- to follow, but keep in mind he'll turn 31 in July and, more importantly, has played a total of 17 actual snaps since Week 8 of the 2018 season. That sets up a fantasy sleeper situation, rife with boom or bust potential.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton's future with the Bengals is uncertain at this time, according to director of player personnel Duke Tobin. The Bengals would save $17.7 million in salary cap space if they trade or release Dalton.
Huddle Up: The Bengals have the first overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and appear likely to take a quarterback with the pick, so Dalton could be let go this offseason. Dalton may have a chance to find a starting job in free agency but can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

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.

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 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 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.

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.
