  Bengals | Chris Evans emerging as Cincy's No. 2?    Fri Jun 24, 03:26 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Chris Evans could supplant RB Samaje Perine as the team's No. 2 running back in 2022, The Athletic's Paul Dehner Jr. writes. 'If [Evans] can continue to grow as a pass protector and build trust in the coaching staff to do the right things, you could make an argument he could supplant Perine as the third-down back.'

Footballguys view: If the Bengals are going to have a split backup role behind Joe Mixon, then neither is worth rostering in typical leagues. The main takeaway here might be that Evans is a better pickup than Perine if Joe Mixon goes down.

  Bengals | Joe Mixon no longer a three-down RB?    Fri Jun 24, 03:09 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon is 'unlikely' to be a three-down back in 2022, according to The Athletic's Paul Dehner Jr., who cites Mixon's struggles in pass protection as a reason. 'There will be spots for [Mixon] on third down, but the days focusing on turning him into a three-down back are behind them.'

Footballguys view: Mixon can still return first round value if he stays healthy and harvests the large number of rushing touchdowns this top offense is likely to create, but this limits his upside. There is also the question of whether Chris Evans will take over third-down duties and complicate the backup picture. Mixon is a relatively safe, but possibly less exciting pick near the 1-2 turn.

  Bengals | RB Evans To Take Over on Third Downs?    Thu Jun 23, 03:49 PM

Paul Dehner, from The Athletic, reports Cincinnati Bengals RB Chris Evans has a chance to supplant Samaje Perine as the Bengals' third down back.

Footballguys view: As last season wore on, starter Joe Mixon was used less and less on third downs. That opened the door for Perine to earn more snaps...snaps which could go to Evans this year. On the Bengals high-powered offense, and with QB Joe Burrow tossing him the rock, Evans would have at least 'what the heck' flex value in PPR formats if he can win the job.

  Bengals | Joe Burrow feeling 'normal again'    Sun Jun 19, 06:31 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow topped out at 20.8 miles per hour while doing sprints after practice recently, which Burrow says is a personal best since his 2020 knee surgery. 'It just feels good to feel normal again,' Burrow said on Thursday, June 16. 'We're getting there. Record since surgery, that's for sure.'

Footballguys view: Burrow has been practicing without a knee brace this offseason. He's one of the best young quarterbacks in the game and incredibly fun to watch. Hopefully the Bengals do a better job of protecting him going forward.

  Bengals | Joe Burrow sheds knee brace    Wed Jun 15, 09:59 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow (knee) has been practicing without a knee brace this offseason. 'I've just been able to focus on the entirety of myself, weight room and conditioning, on field, throwing, mechanics, all of it, not really focusing on the knee,' Burrow said.

Footballguys view: Burrow was able to make it through last season, all the way to the Super Bowl, with the knee brace. He suffered an MCL sprain in the big game but did not need surgery to repair it. Now the brace is gone, and Burrow is working to be better than ever. Hopefully, the Bengals pass protection is much better this season because Burrow is a special passer who is fun to watch.

  Bengals | Ja'Marr Chase embracing slot reps    Sun Jun 12, 05:33 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase is set to work out of the slot more in 2022, which is a point of emphasis for wide receivers coach Troy Walters. 'I'm cool in the slot. I just need more reps in it,' Chase said. 'It doesn't really matter to me. It's just another way for me to get the ball. There's no way to get open easy. Just get the ball in another way.'

Footballguys view: Chase says he's more comfortable that he was last year as a rookie...and that's bad news for opposing defenders. He's arguably already the best receiver in the league and a no-brainer WR1 for all Fantasy GMs out there.

  Bengals | WR Chase More Comfortable    Sun Jun 5, 02:41 PM

Jay Morrison, from The Athletic, reports Cincinnati Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase is more comfortable with the team's offense than he was as a rookie in 2021. "Last year I was just out there running routes, having fun again," Chase said. "Now I've got all the small details down, like learning how to set people up before the next route. And I feel more comfortable with the offense. Maybe I can move around a little more when we see different things on film. I feel like all of that's going to make me a lot better this year."

Footballguys view: Uh oh...a more comfortable Chase is a more dangerous Chase. He's already one of the best receivers in the NFL, and he's only played one season. Chase has incredible natural talent, and his connection with QB Joe Burrow is off the charts. Chase is a no-brainer WR1 for Fantasy GMs and a first-round pick in all draft formats.

  Bengals | Ja'Marr Chase looking to top 2021    Tue May 31, 11:15 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase isn't resting on his laurels ahead of the 2022 season. 'I'm not going to say what [my goals] are, but I don't think they're hard,' Chase said. 'They're a little more than last year, like catches and yards. I've still got to find my touchdown minimum.'

Footballguys view: Chase was an absolute monster during his rookie season, and his game in Week 17 against the Chiefs (11 catches, 266 yards, three touchdowns) probably won a lot of fantasy championships out there. His chemistry with QB Joe Burrow is off the charts, and Chase is one of the best deep threats in the NFL. He finished his rookie campaign with 81 catches for 1,455 yards and 13 receiving touchdowns. Those will be tough numbers to best in his sophomore season, but with Chase we're not going to doubt his ability to do just that.

  Bengals | WR Higgins Ready for Training Camp?    Sun May 22, 01:49 PM

Paul Dehner Jr, from The Athletic, reports Cincinnati Bengals WR Tee Higgins (shoulder) is not wearing a sling and is expected to be ready for training camp.

Footballguys view: Higgins played through a torn labrum last year, and he had surgery to repair his shoulder a few months ago. Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said the team would keep him out of OTAs and minicamp as he recovers. However, most around the Bengals feel Higgins will be eased into action during training camp and the preseason. Higgins finished 2021 as the no.18 fantasy wide receiver in standard scoring leagues, and he should be around the same spot this season as a WR2 with WR1 upside.

  Bengals | Daxton Hill agrees to terms    Wed May 18, 10:24 AM

Cincinnati Bengals first-round pick S Daxton Hill agreed to an undisclosed four-year deal Wednesday, May 18. The deal includes a fifth-year option.

Footballguys view: Hill is a jack of all trades in the secondary, doing everything from covering the slot receiver to playing center field to coming up to support against the run. He'll greatly help a defense that will probably show a lot more three safety looks with the excellent duo of Vonn Bell and Jessie Bates in tow.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tee Higgins (shoulder) isn't participating in the offseason workouts but is expected to be ready for training camp, per Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic on Tuesday, May 17.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Bengals here. Higgins underwent shoulder surgery this offseason but was seen without a sling during Tuesday's workout. When Higgins is ready to resume practicing, the team should ease him back into action. At this time, Higgins has an ADP of WR14 (3.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.
