Fantasy Impact: Green has been making progress as of late, but the Bengals will hold him out for at least one more game. The Bengals have no reason to rush him back and will be cautious with their star receiver. Look for Auden Tate and Tyler Boyd to once again lead the Bengals wide receiver corps in Week 7.

The Cincinnati D/ST scored a touchdown on a 92-yard kickoff return on the first play of the game in Week 6. It was all downhill from there as Cincinnati went on to lose to the Ravens 23-17.

Fantasy Impact: Kick returner Brandon Wilson got his team off to a fast start but that was one of the few highlights of the afternoon for the Bengals. Cincinnati forced one turnover and notched one sack in the loss. They will return home to take on the Jaguars in Week 7. This is not a defense to count on in any fantasy format.

Cincinnati Bengals kicker Randy Bullock made his lone field goal in a 23-17 loss to the Ravens in Week 6. He also added two extra points.

Fantasy Impact: Bullock has hit 9-of-11 field goals and all 10 of his extra points this season. With how badly the Cincy offense has struggled, Bullock is not on the radar as a fantasy option.

Cincinnati Bengals tight end C.J. Uzomah caught 2-of-3 targets for 26 yards in a 23-17 loss to the Ravens in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact: Uzomah now has just eight catches for 108 yards in what has been a rough season for the Bengals. He will face the Jaguars in Week 7.

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert caught both of his targets for 13 yards in a 23-17 loss to the Ravens in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact: Eifert continues to underwhelm. The red zone threat of years past only has one score through six games. He will not be a recommended option in Week 7 against the Jaguars.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Alex Erickson caught 4-of-6 targets for 47 yards in a 23-17 loss to the Ravens in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact: Erickson also tacked on a 17-yard rush, which sadly led the entire team in rushing yardage. The veteran wideout is not a safe bet to repeat his production in Week 7 against Jacksonville.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd caught just 3-of-7 targets for 10 yards in a 23-17 loss to the Ravens in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact: Boyd couldn't get anything going against emerging lockdown corner Marlon Humphrey. Boyd should bounce back in Week 7 against a Jacksonville secondary that has struggled without the injured Jalen Ramsey.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Auden Tate caught 5-of-12 targets for 91 yards in a 23-17 loss to the Ravens in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact: Tate drew a team-high 12 targets, although he wasn't very efficient with those looks. Nonetheless, Tate is worth using as a flex option in fantasy for as long as A.J. Green remains sidelined. The Bengals take on the Jaguars in Week 7.

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard carried the ball four times for four yards and added two catches for 20 yards in a 23-17 loss to the Ravens in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact: Bernard continues to play in a backup role behind Joe Mixon. Even if he were to get a starter's workload, the Cincy offensive line is one of the worst in the league. Bernard is an extremely low-upside handcuff option in fantasy at this time.

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon struggled in a 23-17 loss to the Ravens in Week 6. Mixon gained just 10 yards on eight carries and added two catches for 29 yards in the loss.

Fantasy Impact: Mixon was unable to get anything going on the ground, with his longest rush going for three yards. The Cincy offensive line has been ineffective this season, which is really hurting Mixon's bottom line. He will take on the Jaguars in Week 7.

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton completed 21-of-39 passes for 235 yards and an interception in a 23-17 loss to the Ravens in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact: Dalton salvaged his day with a two-yard rushing touchdown. The veteran quarterback got off to a fast start this season but has thrown just two touchdowns over his past three games. He will take on the Jaguars at home in Week 7.

Nick Vigil led all defensive players in tackles through the first slate of games on Sunday with ten solo tackles, three assisted tackles, one pass defended, and a fumble recovery in a 23 -17 loss to the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: Vigil has been on a bit of a hot streak, as he notched double-digit tackles for the third straight game. He might be a sneaky good pick up off the waiver wire if he is still available.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Damion Willis caught all four of his targets for 38 yards in a 26-23 loss to the Cardinals in Week 5.

Fantasy Impact: Willis now has nine catches for 82 yards through five games. The rookie wideout has seen a chance to get on the field with the A.J. Green injury but he hasn't done much to impress. The Bengals take on the Ravens on the road in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact: Ross who suffered the shoulder injury in Monday’s Week 4 contest against the Steelers, was placed on the injured reserve. It was reported earlier that Ross would miss multiple games, but the Bengals ultimately decided to place him on the IR. With A.J. Green expected to miss two more weeks, this leaves Tyler Boyd and Auden Tate to lead the Bengals receiver corps for the foreseeable future. Ross finished 2019 with 16 receptions for 328 yards and three touchdowns on 32 targets.

Fantasy Impact: Williams missed time to start the season due to a foot injury but has been a healthy scratch for the last two weeks now. He likely needs an injury to Joe Mixon or Giovani Bernard in order to see any time in the Cincinnati backfield.

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Drew Sample caught 2-of-3 passes for 25 yards in a 41-17 loss to the 49ers in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: The rookie tight end now didn't record a stat in Week 2 but he now has his first two NFL catches under his belt. He will look for more in Week 3 against the Bills.

Sam Hubbard has a career day

Mon, Sep 9th 1:35pm EDT
By Kaiyo Funaki

Sam Hubbard posted eye-popping numbers against the Seattle Seahawks, recording 10 tackles, 2.5 TFLs (including two sacks), and four QB hits.

Fantasy Impact: The second-year defensive end was a disruptive force on Sunday, but there are little indications that he can sustain this production. A strong outing next week against another NFC West opponent, the San Francisco 49ers, will go a long way in building trust amongst fantasy owners.

LT Cordy Glenn has been ruled for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. He has remained in the concussion protocol since the Bengals' second preseason game against Washington. (Source: Cincinatti Enquirer)

Fantasy Impact: Andre Smith will serve as Glenn's replacement on Sunday. He'll have the task of stopping the newly acquired Jadeveon Clowney. This does not bode well for a Bengals offense playing on the road in Seattle week 1.

Rodney Anderson’s injury was confirmed by Bengals head coach Zac Taylor as a torn ACL. He will likely miss the entire season. Due to injuries, Anderson played only 17 games in four seasons with the Oklahoma Sooners, which was a concern coming into this year’s draft. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: With Anderson out of the picture, both Joe Mixon and Giovanni Bernard’s workloads appear to be safe.

Cody Core catches five balls

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Cody Core caught five passes for 75 yards in a 13-6 preseason loss to the Colts on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Core caught 13 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown in 2018, but he may not survive final cuts on Saturday.
