Cincinnati Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring) is no longer bothered by the hamstring injury he suffered at the end of last season.
Huddle Up: Higgins topped 900 yards and caught six touchdowns as a rookie, and with A.J. Green no longer in the picture and Joe Burrow expected back under center, he could easily top those numbers in 2021. Consider him a WR3 with upside.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) is working out and has recovered from his foot injury, according to head coach Zac Taylor.
Huddle Up: Mixon is a solid fantasy running back when healthy and should have a significant role in the offense next season. He should be at least a No. 2 back in all fantasy leagues next season.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow (knee) is on track to begin running with a soft target of Wednesday, Feb. 10, which would be exactly 10 weeks after the reconstructive surgery on his left knee. He could begin throwing Wednesday, Feb. 24.
Huddle Up: Each of these timelines will be important in Burrow's potential return in time for Week 1 of the 2021 season. So long as all progresses according to plan, he'll be a low- to mid-tier QB1 in 2021 fantasy drafts.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow (knee) told the team's website Tuesday, Jan. 12, that he intends to resume throwing in mid-February and begin running on an underwater treadmill shortly thereafter.
Huddle Up: Burrow added that he doubts he'll play during the preseason if there is one this summer, although he remains optimistic he'll be ready to go for the season opener. Assuming Cincinnati makes some upgrades on the offensive line and he doesn't experience a setback in his recovery from a torn ACL, Burrow should once again be a fine QB2 option in fantasy leagues in 2021.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow (knee) said he believes that he will be ready for the start of the 2021 season.
Huddle Up: Burrow likely will not do much during offseason workouts, so fantasy players will need to keep an eye on him during training camp. He played well during before the injury and should be at least a high-end No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Huddle Up: Huggins has played very well during his rookie season and will continue to be the main option in the passing game for the Bengals. He can be considered at least No. 3 fantasy receiver despite the tough matchup.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 31.
Huddle Up: Boyd appears to have a good chance to play in the Week 17 game he is cleared by the doctors. He would be facing a tough Baltimore Ravens defense if he plays but can still be a No. 3 receiver or flex option since he is a big part of the passing game for Cincinnati.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon (foot) will not play in Week 17 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: That noise you just heard is the collective eye roll of the fantasy community. Once deemed a day-to-day injury by head coach Zac Taylor in late October, Mixon's foot issue ended up costing him the final 10 games of the season. The Bengals also famously could not get a handle of A.J. Green's ankle injury last year, meaning it is going to be difficult to trust the medical evaluations of their training staff and doctors for the foreseeable future. Giovani Bernard and Samaje Perine figure to handle the backfield once again in Week 17 in a bad matchup.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Alex Erickson caught six passes for 88 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 16. He was targeted six times during the game.
Huddle Up: Erickson received a bigger role in the passing game this week since Tyler Boyd was not available to play. His role for Week 17 will depend on if Boyd is cleared to play. He probably will see a handful of targets if Boyd sits again but would be a risky fantasy option against the Baltimore Ravens.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tee Higgins caught six passes for 99 yards and one touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 16. He was targeted nine times during the game.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Samaje Perine rushed for 95 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries against the Houston Texans in Week 16. He also caught four passes for 41 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Perine shared playing time with Giovani Bernard and was able to take advantage for the favorable matchup. He probably will not see as many touches next week against the Baltimore Ravens but could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen went 29-for-37 for 371 yards and two touchdowns against the Houston Texans in Week 16.

Huddle Up: Higgins has three or more grabs in all 13 of his games during his rookie season, and he has been targeted at least five times in each of the outings. He has emerged as a strong WR4 or flex fantasy option in most formats, and he is a great long-term keeper option. The Bengals travel to meet the Texans in Week 16.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd (head) will not return the Week 15 game because of his head injury.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen (knee) on Saturday, Dec. 19, was ruled out of the team's Week 15 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a knee injury, head coach Zac Taylor announced. Ryan Finley will get the start Monday.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen (knee) will sit out practice Thursday, Dec. 17, as he deals with a bone bruise to his knee suffered Sunday. Head coach Zac Taylor said Allen's condition is improving, though, and believes he'll have a chance of playing Monday in the Week 15 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Ryan Finley is taking the first-team QB reps Thursday, but there is still a ways to go with Thursday being Cincy's first practice of the week.
