Jeremy Hill had four carries for 16 yards in Week 5 against Buffalo.
Hill continued to start, but saw limited snaps behind Joe Mixon. He's been held under 30 yards in every game and hasn't had more than eight touches. Even with Joe Mixon failing to impress, the Bengals could use their Week 6 bye to phase Hill out of the offense. Oct 8 - 5:04 PM

Jeremy Hill rushed six times for 16 yards while adding one reception for 10 yards in the Bengals' Week 4 win versus the Browns.

Through four weeks, Hill has yet to hit 30-yards from scrimmage in any game on 7, 7, 8 and 7 touches. If Hill doesn't fall into the end zone, he's just not a worthwhile fantasy play. He's best left on waivers in all leagues.

Jeremy Hill rushed seven times for 23 yards in the Bengals' Week 3 loss to the Packers.

He's seen six or seven carries in all three games to open the year. Despite being the "starter," Hill is the most useless of the three Bengals running backs in fantasy. He'll get some goal-line looks this season, but Joe Mixon was given 21 touches on Sunday and is quickly passing Hill on the depth chart.

Jeremy Hill rushed six times for 17 yards in the Bengals' Week 2 loss to the Texans.

Hill "added" a two-yard reception. Coach Marvin Lewis is all in on Hill "starting," giving him the first carry tonight. Hill gained five yards before totaling 12 yards on his next five totes. Lewis insisted on a three-man committee of Hill, Mixon and Giovani Bernard, allowing none of the three to establish a rhythm. Mixon came closest. With the Bengals' season already on the brink, it's time to see what second-rounder Mixon can do. Hill has given zero indication he will develop into a fantasy factor.

Jeremy Hill managed 26 yards on six carries and caught his only target for a loss of two yards Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 1 loss to the Ravens.

Hill drew the start for Cincinnati but ceded the second series to Joe Mixon and the third to Giovani Bernard. The Bengals had little use for Hill after they fell behind, mostly rolling with Bernard the rest of the way. Four of his six carries came before halftime. Until a frontrunner emerges, we’d expect the Bengals to continue using a committee approach, which is obviously not ideal for fantasy owners.

Jeremy Hill (ankle) is practicing in full for Week 1 against the Ravens.

Hill left the Bengals' third preseason game with an ankle issue, but it never sounded serious. He'll be ready to roll Week 1 against the Ravens and is expected to be the starter. All three of Hill, rookie Joe Mixon, and Giovani Bernard should be involved, so it may be smart to give this one a week to play out.
Sep 6 - 1:21 PM

Jeremy Hill is listed as the starting running back on the Bengals' Week 1 depth chart.

As was the case all summer. Old school coach Marvin Lewis is going to see this one through to the end, making second-rounder Joe Mixon "earn" starting duties away from Hill. It's clear Hill will get the official Week 1 start, but Mixon could easily emerge as the Bengals' most featured back against the Ravens. He was typically mixed in on the Bengals' opening drives in the preseason. Mixon comes with undeniable volatility, but also undeniable upside.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: This is a backfield to avoid this week in DFS. In addition to these two, Giovani Bernard figures to pick up passing down work. Projecting the market share between the group will be tough. Plus, a three-man timeshare rarely produces great fantasy performances. Our model gives Mixon the edge, but he’s too expensive and it’s too soon to target him. If Hill doesn’t start 2017 hot, Mixon’s breakout game could come quickly.
Sep 5 - 1:40 PM

Jeremy Hill was forced from the Bengals' third preseason game with a left ankle injury, and will not return.

Hill got rolled up in the first quarter, and was ruled out in the second. Before going down, Hill made his third consecutive start of the preseason, getting the ball on each of the Bengals' first two plays. He then gave way to third-down back Giovani Bernard, while impressive rookie Joe Mixon joined later on the opening series. Despite the starts, Hill hasn't been overly impressive this summer, turning 18 carries into 69 yards (3.83 YPC) and a touchdown. Mixon has been the more explosive player. Even if Hill gets the Week 1 "start," he'll be in danger of getting passed up by Mixon at any given moment.
Aug 27 - 5:30 PM

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.
Aug 11 - 9:28 PM

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.
Aug 10 - 11:26 AM

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.
