Jeremy Hill started the Bengals' second preseason game, rushing six times for 28 yards.
It was Hill's second straight summer start, though Joe Mixon also checked in on the opening drive, and mixed in throughout the night with the first-team offense. Hill now has 13 August carries for 54 yards (4.15 YPC). Hill could very well get the Week 1 "start," but Mixon is still the overall touch favorite in the Bengals' backfield. Aug 19 - 10:15 PM

Jeremy Hill managed 26 yards on seven carries in the Bengals' preseason opener.

Giovani Bernard (knee) sat this one out, so Hill largely dominated work with the first-team offense, playing ahead of Joe Mixon. Mixon did mix in on the Bengals' opening drive, however, and he has a lot of room for movement up the depth chart. In both the run and pass games, the difference between Hill and Mixon is night and day. Mixon should take over sooner rather than later.

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Jim Owczarski believes Jeremy Hill will "start all season" unless he "is injured or is absolutely terrible."

Hill has been mostly terrible since his rookie season, so that is a possibility. Still, ESPN's Katherine Terrell also expects Hill to open the season as the starter, and the fourth-year player was listed as the lead back on the first depth chart. As Owczarski's writes, it does not particularly matter who starts, but Hill is not going to get the opening snap and then disappear, limiting the available touches for second-rounder Joe Mixon. We should get a clearer picture of the situation during the preseason, but as of now, Mixon needs to be bumped down draft boards a few spots.

Jeremy Hill is listed as the starting running back on the Bengals' unofficial depth chart.

So this is how it's going to be? Hill's listing is eye-brow raising four days after ESPN's Katherine Terrell predicted he would be the starter, but we're guessing it's still early-camp semantics. Veterans get depth chart preference while rookies are forced to jump through artificial hoops. Even if Hill ends up making the nominal "start" in Week 1, Mixon, at least today, is the touch favorite.
Aug 8 - 1:33 PM

ESPN Bengals reporter Katherine Terrell expects Jeremy Hill to enter the season as the starting running back.

Terrell writes, "If history is any indication, Hill will likely exit camp as the starting back. But Joe Mixon could push him every step of the way." All offseason long, Hill has been an afterthought in Cincinnati, though most expect him to keep his roster spot and still be a factor on offense. But Mixon remains the favorite for lead-dog duties. Hill hasn't been any good since his 2014 rookie season. He could get the nominal "start" in the opener, but Mixon is the far better fantasy bet for the entirety of the season.

Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official website still expects Jeremy Hill to be a factor on offense for Cincinnati this season.

We've literally heard nothing on Hill since the Bengals used a second-rounder on Joe Mixon back in late April. But coach Marvin Lewis apparently had a "fiery defense" of Hill at one point this offseason. Hobson expects Hill to not only keep his roster spot but also be a factor near the goal line at the very least. Many are handing the job to Mixon, but this is a situation to watch this summer.

Jeremy Hill said he is looking to generate more yards after contact.

Coming off back-to-back disappointing seasons, Hill said he changed his workout regimen. "It wasn’t working. What I was doing wasn’t working," Hill said before adding the injuries he dealt with last year are "no excuse" for his poor play. Heading into the final year of his contract, a return to the form which saw him average 5.1 yards per carry as a rookie would be good for both the Bengals and Hill's pocketbook.
Apr 17 - 9:25 PM

Speaking Wednesday, Bengals director of player personnel Duke Tobin said the team will be drafting a running back.

Tobin obviously didn't specify when, but the Bengals have 11 picks. Reporter Paul Dehner wouldn't rule out a runner at No. 9 overall. Fellow beat writer Katherine Terrell floated the same idea last week. It would appear the Bengals are giving up the ghost on Jeremy Hill, who's coming off back-to-back lackluster seasons and headed into the final year of his rookie contract.
Mar 1 - 5:45 PM

ESPN's Katherine Terrell said drafting a running back in the first round is "not out of the question" for the Bengals.

We agree with Terrell's assessment that Cincinnati's backfield "isn't great at the moment." Giovani Bernard is coming off ACL surgery and backups Rex Burkhead and Cedric Peerman are both free agents. Jeremy Hill is entering a contract year and has averaged an underwhelming 3.67 yards per carry over his last two seasons. The Bengals hold the No. 9 pick in this year's draft. LSU's Leonard Fournette and Florida State's Dalvin Cook could both go in that range.
Feb 24 - 5:00 PM

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner believes Jeremy Hill will serve as a "backup" and goal-line specialist next season.

It would not be a great development for Hill personally, who is heading into his contract year. Dehner expects the Bengals to land a running back in the draft, and it seems he expects Giovani Bernard to take on the starting job, although Bernard is recovering from a torn ACL suffered Week 11. Hill had a couple big games against the Browns, but he was otherwise an inefficient mess before sitting out Week 17 with a knee injury. Since his rookie breakout, Hill has averaged 3.7 yards on 445 carries.
Jan 5 - 1:05 PM

Jeremy Hill is one of the Bengals' inactives for Week 17 against the Ravens.

Rex Burkhead should operate as the Bengals' lead back with Tra Carson and Cedric Peerman behind him. Cincinnati's other Week 17 inactives are QB Jeff Driskel, LB Vontaze Burfict, OG Christian Westerman, TE Tyler Kroft, DT DeShawn Williams, and WR Jake Kumerow.
Jan 1 - 11:34 AM

Jeremy Hill (knee) is questionable for Week 17 against the Ravens after practicing on a limited basis Friday.

The Bengals just called up a running back from the practice squad. All signs point to Hill missing Sunday's finale, though perhaps he'll tough it out to try and keep his consecutive games streak intact. Rex Burkhead would start if Hill isn't able to go.

ESPN's Bob Holtzman reports Jeremy Hill (knee) is unlikely to play in Sunday's season finale against the Ravens.

Hill played through a knee injury and only managed eight yards on seven carries last week in a loss to Houston. He hasn't practiced yet this week and will likely be ruled out on Friday. There's just no reason to push Hill with Cincinnati out of the playoff picture. This would be Hill's first career absence. Rex Burkhead could be in line for a big workload on Sunday, though he'll be going against a stout Ravens' run defense. Daily Slant: Burkhead adds yet another value play into the equation this weekend, but his workload should be secure given the lack of depth behind him. Baltimore ranks first in rush DVOA on the season, but they've allowed the 10th-most fantasy points per game to running backs over the past four weeks. Ryan Mathews and Le'Veon Bell each rushed for over 120 yards, averaged over 6.0 yards per carry, and scored a touchdown in Weeks 15 and 16, respectively.

Jeremy Hill (knee) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Hill managed just eight yards on seven carries while playing through a knee injury last week. The Bengals have already decided to sit A.J. Green (hamstring) for Week 17 and could opt to do the same with Hill. Rex Burkhead would lead the backfield if Hill is absent for Sunday's season finale against Baltimore.

Jeremy Hill had seven carries for eight yards in Week 16 against the Texans.

Hill came into the game questionable with a knee injury. He started, but played fewer snaps than Rex Burkhead. Hill's lack of playing time looked to be performance-related. He's now been held under 40 rushing yards in four of his last five games. Hill has a matchup with the Ravens in Week 17.
