Jeremy Hill facing a demotion in 2017

Cincinattit Bengals beat reporter Paul Dehner Jr. believes running back Jeremy Hill will serve as the team's "backup" running back and "goal line specialist" in 2017.

Fantasy Impact

Hill, who has scored 29 touchdowns in his first three years in the league while missing only one game, will likely be demoted to the team's No. 2 running back/ goal line specialist next season. After averaging 5.1 YPC in his rookie year (2014), his average dropped to 3.6 YPC in 2015 and 3.8 YPC in 2016 -- likely contributing to his presumed reduced role. The Bengals will likely address the running back position in the draft or free agency in the upcoming offseason.

Jeremy Hill INACTIVE for Week 17

Jeremy Hill (knee) is inactive for the Bengals' Week 17 game against the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

Hill was doubtful and expected to miss this game with the injury, but now it's official. Rex Burkhead should get the bulk of the carries, making him an intriguing flex play, albeit in a tough matchup.

Jeremy Hill 'unlikely' to play Week 17

ESPN's Bob Holtzman reports Cincinnati Bengals running back Jeremy Hill (knee) is "unlikely" to play Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Hill is suffering from a knee injury and is on track to be designated inactive for the season finale Sunday versus Baltimore. Rex Burkhead is in line to start in Hill's absence. However, facing a tough Ravens run defense, he is viewed a risky fantasy option for Week 17.

Jeremy Hill not practicing Wednesday

Jeremy Hill (knee) did not practice Wednesday, following the same pattern as last week.

Fantasy Impact

Hill was barely involved in Week 16, suggesting that his knee wasn't as healthy as reported, and him being absent from practice suggests the same. The Bengals have nothing to play for even in a divisional game, so if Hill isn't 100 percent, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him sit, especially with the way the team is handling A.J. Green and his injury. Rex Burkhead would take over as the lead back if Hill is out but neither is worthy of anything more than a desperation flex play against the Ravens' tough defense.

Jeremy Hill quiet as Bengals lose late to Texans

Jeremy Hill had just eight yards on seven carries on Saturday against the Texans.

Fantasy Impact

Game flow didn't eliminate Hill from the game plan with the Bengals leading until late in the game, which made his lack of carries a total surprise. His usage was unexpected and came at the worst time for fantasy owners. He will be a low end RB2 at best next week against the Ravens.
