Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel took snaps at wide receiver Tuesday, Aug. 13, at the request of head coach Zac Taylor, according to Jay Morrison of The Athletic. 'I'm still competing at quarterback,' Driskel said. 'That's what I want to be. That's what I think I can be. But I just want to show that I can add value to this team in other ways and show that I want to contribute and can contribute.'
Huddle Up: Driskel is in competition with fourth-round pick Ryan Finley to be Andy Dalton's backup at quarterback. The Bengals seem to be trying to make Driskel their own variation of New Orleans Saints utilityman Taysom Hill, but even the original didn't have any predictable fantasy value.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel went 12-of-24 for 95 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Week 17 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was sacked four times but ran for 13 yards on two carries.
Huddle Up: Injuries to A.J. Green and later to Tyler Boyd did not help his cause, but Driskel proved to be pretty much what most people thought he was in his first extended opportunity at NFL playing time following the season-ending injury to Andy Dalton back in Week 12. Assuming he remains on the roster in 2019, he'll go back to clipboard duty.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel went 13-for-19 for 133 yards and two touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns in Week 16. He also rushed for 21 yards on five carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Driskel has been held to under 200 yards in each of his last three games but does have four touchdowns and only one interception during that span. He should not be a starting option next week against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel completed just 14-of-33 passes for 130 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 15 against the Oakland Raiders and he rushed for 32 yards.
Huddle Up: Driskel didn't do much, but all he really needed to do was hand it to Joe Mixon and he did the rest. Driskel shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy radar heading into Week 16 in Cleveland.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel (shoulder) practiced in full on Friday, Dec. 14 and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 15 game against the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: Driskel continues to start with Andy Dalton (thumb) done for the season, so the Bengals get a chance to evaluate him for the future. However, fantasy owners should steer far clear of him, even against a Raiders pass defense allowing an NFL-high 31 passing scores this season.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 13.
Huddle Up: Driskel has thrown three touchdowns in the last three games but has also been held to under 200 yards in two of those three games. Owners in all leagues should have better options available and should avoid Driskel.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel (shoulder) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: Driskel is what some might call a sneaky start against one of the worst fantasy pass defenses this year in the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders have surrendered the most passing touchdowns (30) in 2018, so Driskel is at the very worst a cheap DFS play.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel went 18-for-27 for 170 yards and a touchdown during the team's Week 15 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: To be fair, Driskel had a running TD wiped away on a bizarre interpretation of a new rule that ended his progress just short of the goal line, but even with that it would've been a middling day. There's nothing to see here. Move along.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel completed 25-of-38 passes for 236 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Driskel was under pressure frequently while being dropped for four sacks. It won't get any easier for Driskel and the skidding Bengals as they take on the Chargers in Week 14.
