Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) continues to make progress from his preseason ankle injury, but head coach Zac Taylor offered only a 'we'll see' when asked about Green's potential availability for Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: While there is always a chance the Bengals could hold him out until after the Week 9 bye in what is quickly becoming a lost season, there is definitely some incentive for him to give him some time to knock off the rust. There is also no question Cincinnati's offense needs Green, if only because Tyler Boyd has been held in check in three of the last four games. Although the second-half schedule is not particularly favorable for Green, he remains a nice buy-low candidate - albeit with obvious injury risk.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd had three receptions for 10 yards on seven targets in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Boyd had a giant game last week, posting 10 grabs for a season-high 123 yards and a score, but this week was a season-low yardage total. That type of inconsistency is maddening for fantasy owners. He is a boom or bust fantasy option heading into Week 7 against the Jaguars.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert went for just 13 yards on two catches on his two targets in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Eifert is worth using as a low-end TE2 at best in fantasy leagues heading into Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was once a great threat in the red zone when healthy. Injuries haven't been a concern this season, but he is just too inconsistent to rely upon regularly in most leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate finished with five catches for 91 yards on 12 targets in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens, leading the team in receiving for the third time in the past four games.
Huddle Up: Tate has emerged as a decent WR5 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams, although some touchdowns would be nice. The Bengals host the Jaguars in Week 7.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed four times for just four yards in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens while adding two catches for 20 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Bernard was once one of the better receivers out of the backfield and a strong PPR fantasy play, but he is only worth using in the deepest of leagues at this point. The Bengals host the Jaguars in Week 7.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed eight times for 10 yards in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens while adding two receptions for 29 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Mixon has zero 100-yard rushing performances or scores on the ground through six games, while finding the end zone only once through the air. He remains more of a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 21-of-39 passes for 235 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens and he added a rushing score.
Huddle Up: Dalton has posted just six touchdowns with five interceptions through six games while running for two scores. He remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) sprinted on Wednesday, Oct. 9, which was the first time he was able to do that since getting injured. Green has already been ruled out for Week 6, but he's hoping to return for Week 7, according to The Athletic's Jay Morrison.
Huddle Up: While the season is already all but over for the Bengals, Green's return could be a big boost to the offense and fantasy owners. Check your waiver wire ASAP just in case someone got impatient and jettisoned the perennial Pro Bowl selection.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) on Friday, Oct. 11, was officially ruled out of Week 6.
Huddle Up: There's now light at the end of the tunnel with Green returning to limited practice participation this week, but he's likely going to need another week or two on your bench/IR slot before he returns to action.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) is expected to practice on a 'very limited' basis Thursday, Oct. 10.
Huddle Up: ESPN's Ben Baby posted a video on social media of Green going through some position drills, marking the first time the receiver has participated in football activities since getting hurt in late July. Expect him to be ruled out for Week 6 versus the Baltimore Ravens on Friday, but today's practice at least opens up the possibility he can play no later than Week 8.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) will not practice again this week or play in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens, according to head coach Zac Taylor.
Huddle Up: At this point, fantasy owners might as well continue stashing him if they've waited this long. Green told reporters a few weeks ago the initial timeline on his injury was overly optimistic, but it seems reasonable to believe he'll be able to start practicing within the next week or two since he suffered the injury in late July. Then again, there may not be a ton of motivation for him to play given the Bengals' record (0-5) without a new contract.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed twice for 10 yards in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals and he added three grabs for 16 yards on his three targets.
Huddle Up: Bernard is simply used to spell starter Joe Mixon while seeing time occasionally in passing situations. Unless something happens to Mixon you should avoid Bernard outside of the deepest of PPR formats. The Bengals travel to meet the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate posted three grabs for 26 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Tate led the team in receiving yardage the past two games, but this was the Tyler Boyd show against the Cards. Despite the increase in usage in recent weeks, Tate remains nothing more than a low-end WR4 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 6 at Baltimore.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd pulled down 10 receptions for a season-high 123 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Boyd had his second double-digit catch performance and second 100-yard day, but this was his first visit to the end zone. He'll look to build on the momentum heading into Week 6 at Baltimore. He remains more of a WR3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 19 times for 93 yards in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals while adding a 16-yard reception on his only target.
Huddle Up: Mixon hasn't had a 100-yard rushing game this season, and he hasn't even run for a score in five games. However, his rushing totals have been improving each game, and this was a high in terms of scrimmage yards. He'll look to keep improving in Week 6 at Baltimore. He remains a solid RB2 in most fantasy leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 27-of-38 passes for 262 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Dalton had a little more time to operate in this one, as the banged up offensive line gave him more time. He was sacked just once, and was particularly impressive in his connections with Tyler Boyd. Dalton will look to build upon the momentum into Week 6 at Baltimore, but he still remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy formats.

Cincinnati Bengals SS Shawn Williams posted 12 total stops, including a game-high 10 solo tackles, in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Cincinnati Bengals WRs Auden Tate and Alex Erickson will join WR Tyler Boyd as the starting receivers for the Week 5 game.
Huddle Up: Tate has posted solid numbers over the last two weeks and could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues. Erickson has posted only six receptions and 55 yards in the first four games and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) will not play in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals, head coach Zac Taylor confirmed Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Huddle Up: Green is making some progress, but he reportedly remains week-to-week. Fantasy owners will want to be patient and keep him reserved until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) is expected to miss multiple games in the range of a month or so due to injury, sources said Tuesday, Oct. 2.
Huddle Up: While catching passes from QB Andy Dalton doesn't seem like a great role right now, WR Auden Tate is next up for targets behind Tyler Boyd with A.J. Green still sidelined for the foreseeable future. Tate should be added in all formats, while Damion Willis and Alex Erickson are options for deeper leagues. Don't be surprised if the Bengals add outside help, either. Anyone added to the thin receiving corps at this point would be worth at least some fantasy consideration.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) had his right arm in a sling after the Week 4 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: If Ross is forced to miss playing time, look for Auden Tate to be the biggest beneficiary behind Tyler Boyd. Damion Willis might also see a larger role, too, although Boyd and Tate are the best fantasy options. The Bengals host the Cardinals in Week 5.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert had two grabs for 27 yards on five targets in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He had a rare drop in the first quarter, his first since Nov. 6, 2015.
Huddle Up: Eifert has registered 11 catches for just 81 yards on 16 targets with one touchdown through four games. He is barely a blip on the radar even in the deepest of fantasy leagues at this point. The Bengals host the Cardinals in Week 5.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd posted just three grabs for 33 yards on six targets in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Boyd limped off late, but was able to return to the game. This was Boyd's worst statistical game of the season, as he had at least six grabs and 60 yards in each of his previous three. He remains a WR4 in most fantasy leagues in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed just one for three yards and he added four grabs for 16 yards on six targets in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday, Sept. 30.
Huddle Up: Bernard steps in to give Joe Mixon a breather in the run game while seeing snaps in passing situations. As long as Mixon is healthy there is very little fantasy appeal for Bernard outside of deeper PPR leagues. The Bengals host the Cardinals in Week 5.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Auden Tate absorbed four of his six targets for 50 yards in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Tate has stepped up his game with 10 grabs for 138 yards and 16 targets over the past two games, emerging as at least a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. The Bengals host the Cardinals in Week 5.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon rushed 15 times for 62 yards in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers while registering four catches for just one yard.
Huddle Up: Mixon was busy, but he wasn't going anywhere with the Steelers defense flying around and shutting down the run and the pass. He and the Bengals will look for better results in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 21-of-37 passes for 171 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday, Sept. 30. He was sacked eight times and the Steelers were credited with 12 official quarterback hits.
Huddle Up: The Bengals were missing key members of the offensive line, but he was literally running for his life tonight. To make matters worse, John Ross left the game with a shoulder injury late. Dalton is a low-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 5, and that might even be generous. The Bengals host the Cardinals in Week 5.
