Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Green posted 96 yards in the last game and has been targeted at least nine times in three of the six games this season. He should see a decent amount of targets against the Cleveland Browns and can be at least a flex option in leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard will start Sunday, Oct. 25, against the Cleveland Browns with RB Joe Mixon sidelined with a foot injury.
Huddle Up: Mixon is leading the league in touches with 140, and In the eight games that Bernard has played at least 60 percent of the offensive snaps since the start of the 2017 season, he's averaged 17.5 touches, including 5.0 receptions, and 14.2 PPR points per outing. He's a rock-solid RB2 play this week against the Browns.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) on Friday, Oct. 23, was ruled out of the Week 7 game Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, head coach Zac Taylor said.
Huddle Up: Mixon, who leads the league in touches with 140 and ranks ninth among running backs with 17.9 fantasy points per contest, will miss his first game of the season. At least there's some advance warning, and his fantasy owners will have to turn to Giovani Bernard or another RB option for at least a week.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: Green had a breakout performance last week after a few disappointing games and has been targeted at least five times in five of the six games this season. He has a chance to be a flex option or a possible bye week replacement in fantasy leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: The Cincinnati Enquirer's Tyler Dragon noted that Mixon was seen "dancing around" at practice, so it is very possible the Bengals are just giving their well-paid running back as much time off as they can. Mixon was able to return to the game in Week 6 after suffering the injury, further giving his fantasy owners reason to believe he will go in Week 7. As per usual, his availability at practice Friday figures to determine his status against the Cleveland Browns.

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

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd posted five receptions for 54 yards on eight targets in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Boyd's yardage total was rather average, and he hasn't scored in four games since Week 2 in Cleveland, when he had seven grabs for 72 yards and a score. As luck has it, the Bengals host the Browns in Week 7, so perhaps he'll get back into the end zone for his fantasy owners then.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green racked up eight receptions for 96 yards on 11 targets in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Green was barely involved in the previous two games, going for just one catch for three yards on six targets, including no grabs in Week 5. This was nice to see, but fantasy owners need a little more of these kind of games before they can trust him again. The Bengals host the Browns in Week 7. Despite 13 targets, he had just three grabs for 29 yards in the first meeting in Cleveland back in Week 2.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tee Higgins posted career highs with six receptions and 125 yards in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts on eight targets.
Huddle Up: The rookie hasn't visited the end zone since scoring twice in Philadelphia back in Week 3. Still, he has three or more receptions in all five of his games, including three grabs for 35 yards in Week 2 in Cleveland. The Bengals host the Browns in Week 7.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed eight times for 15 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts and he added three receptions for 13 yards on his three targets.
Huddle Up: The touchdown was nice, but Bernard's fantasy appeal remains rather negligible outside of the deepest of PPR formats. The Bengals host the Cleveland Browns in Week 7.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) rushed 18 times for 54 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts and he added two grabs for 15 yards on three targets. He left the game briefly, but was able to return.
Huddle Up: It was Mixon's first visit to the end zone since he rans for two scores and added another in Week 4 against Jacksonville, the only other time he had at least one touchdown in a game this season. Still, he averaged 3.0 rushing yards per attempt for the fourth time in the past five games, and he has been looking more like an RB2 in most fantasy leagues than the RB1 he was drafted to be. The Bengals host the Browns in Week 7. He had 16 times for 46 yards in the first meeting in Cleveland back in Week 2.

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.
Huddle Up: Burrow has gone without a touchdown pass in each of his past two outings while throwing an interception in each of his past three. The good news is that he has four 300-yard performances in the previous five starts. However, that's not enough to get him out of the QB2 fantasy neighborhood. The Bengals host the Browns in Week 7. Burrow had his best showing of the season in Cleveland in Week 2, throwing for a season-high 316 yards and three TDs.
