Jeremy Hill rushed 13 times for 45 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals' Week 11 loss to the Cardinals.
Both of his scores came at the goal-line. Hill managed just 10 yards in the second half and played fewer snaps than Gio Bernard. He averaged only 3.5 YPC despite having one of his better games. The touchdowns were Hill's first since Week 6. Hill will remain a low-floor option against the Rams in Week 12 Nov 23 - 12:29 AM

Jeremy Hill said "game flow" is a big reason the Bengals' running game has struggled this season.

"When our passing game is hitting like that, you have to stay with the hot hand," Hill said. OC Hue Jackson was more defiant, saying, "We're trying to win games. It's not about running the ball. Please." The team can spin it however they like, but the reality is Hill has struggled to consistently move the ball this season. Hill is not a quality option this week, and he is wandering dangerously close to droppable territory.

Jeremy Hill rushed seven times for 15 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for five yards in the Bengals' Week 10 loss to the Texans on Monday night.

It was another horrific night for the Bengals' supposed early-down back. He had a nice run of six yards followed up by a four-yard tote in the third quarter, but that was about it from Hill. The Bengals continue to talk about wanting to get him more involved, but it hasn't happened and doesn't look like it's going to happen this season with Cincinnati playing more up-tempo with Giovani Bernard. Per PFF's Nate Jahnke, Bernard out-snapped Hill 50-22 on Monday. And Bernard out-gained him by 59 total yards on three more touches. Hill has settled in as a low-floor RB2 and won't get an easy Week 11 test on the road against Arizona.

Jeremy Hill delivered 52 rushing yards on 15 carries and caught one pass for no gain in the Bengals' Week 9 win over the Browns.

It was another plodding effort for Hill, who has averaged a dismal 3.3 yards per carry this year. He out-touched Giovani Bernard 16 to 14 but was outgained by a noticeable 86 to 52 margin. Hill rushed for 100 yards five times last year but hasn’t even rushed for 70 yards yet in 2015. His last rushing touchdown came against the Chiefs in Week 4. He’ll be a low-end RB2 next time out against Houston.

Bengals OC Hue Jackson said "the arrow is pointing up" on Jeremy Hill.

Hill has yet to break out on a per-carry basis, but he has at least 15 carries in each of the last two games against tough defensive fronts. He also out-touched Giovani Bernard 16-3 last week and played two more snaps than the passing-down back. The Cincinnati backfield will be a timeshare all season, but Hill is finally getting enough work to be in the RB2 mix. He is a must-start this week against the Browns barely-there run defense. Daily Slant: Hill has been an afterthought in DFS circles during a very up-and-down year, but this week's match-up with the Browns is a great opportunity for him to explode. Hue Jackson clearly wants to get him more involved since he'll be an important piece of their potential playoff run, and the Browns league-worst run defense will provide a perfect chance to give Hill a heavy workload. Cleveland is allowing over 130 yards on the ground to opposing RBs this year.
Nov 3 - 12:54 PM

Jeremy Hill rushed 15 times for 60 yards in Cincinnati's Week 8 win over the Steelers, adding an eight-yard reception.

Hill got the start, and out-touched Giovani Bernard 16-3 in a game where the Bengals were focused on grinding out a tough road victory. There was a scary moment in the second half where Hill hobbled off the field limping, but he ended up missing only a few plays. Bernard isn't going anywhere, but Hill will be the preferred Week 9 play on a short week against the Browns' truly pathetic run defense.
Nov 1 - 5:29 PM

ESPN Bengals reporter Coley Harvey said the team is "committed" to using Jeremy Hill despite his early-season struggles.

Hill has averaged more than four yards a carry in just one game and has two fumbles in 74 attempts. Giovani Bernard has averaged more than 4.75 yards per carry in all but one game and offers more than Hill in the passing game. Still, Hill is the better early-down and short-yardage option, and he showed enough in his rookie campaign for the Bengals to give him quite a bit of leash. Hill and Bernard will continue to share work, but Hill is the better weekly bet for touchdowns.

Bengals OC Hue Jackson said Jeremy Hill "doesn't play like I want him to play yet."

"I'm not going to run from that, he can't run from it either," Jackson continued. "I mean, there's another level for him and he'll get there and I believe that with my whole heart. He's had some good strong runs but I know the player he can be so I'm going to keep pushing him to get there. I mean, we need him. He's going to be a huge part down the stretch run once we get back here (after the bye)." Hill and Giovani Bernard continue to split work in the Bengals' backfield, and Hill is averaging just 3.1 YPC and hasn't topped 63 yards rushing in a game. Look for Cincinnati to lean on Hill when the weather gets colder.
Oct 21 - 9:45 AM

Jeremy Hill out-snapped Giovani Bernard 35-to-26 Week 6 against the Bills.

Bernard played over three times as many snaps as Hill Week 5 with the Bengals in catch-up mode, but Hill saw more work in a game the Bengals dominated Week 6. The workload split between the two will continue to be a matchup-by-matchup proposition which will be difficult to predict. Both players will be worth low-end RB2 consideration Week 8 against the Steelers, but Hill's weekly floor is extremely low.
Oct 19 - 9:15 AM

Jeremy Hill rushed 16 times for 56 yards and caught his lone target for a 13-yard touchdown in the Bengals' Week 6 win over the Bills.

Hill didn't generate much on the ground, averaging just 3.5 YPC, but he did turn a rare catch into a spectacular 13-yard catch-and-run score. Hill reeled in the dump-off pass and tiptoed up the left sideline before leaping into the end zone. Normally Giovani Bernard handles the pass-game touches out of the backfield, but it was Bernard who scored the rushing touchdown Sunday while Hill scored through the air. Hill and the Bengals go on their bye before seeing the Steelers in Week 8.
Oct 18 - 6:53 PM

Bengals OC Hue Jackson said Jeremy Hill is "still our starting tailback."

"Jeremy hasn't had the success that he had a year ago, and I think that's what everybody's looking for," Jackson said "Everybody has seen over the last couple games that Gio [Bernard] has got more carries, more opportunities than Jeremy. Well, eventually that's going to flip." Hill may be the nominal starter, but the Bengals' backfield has become a matchup-by-matchup proposition. With the Bills' stout front up next, Hill should once again take a backseat to Bernard Week 6.
Oct 13 - 10:03 AM

Coach Marvin Lewis believes the Bengals are passing too much, and wants to "run better to control games."

Those are Bengals in-house reporter Geoff Hobson's words, not Lewis'. Lewis and OC Hue Jackson have made no secret that they want the run to be the foundation of their offense, but Jeremy Hill is making that difficult by averaging 3.0 yards per carry. We don't expect Lewis to go off the run, but especially with Andy Dalton playing so well, the Bengals are going to keep throwing. Hill is tumbling down the RB2 ranks.
Oct 12 - 3:32 PM

Jeremy Hill was held to 13 yards on eight carries and caught one of two targets for 12 yards in the Bengals' Week 5 win over the Seahawks.

Hill’s mystifying season continues. A week after winning back fantasy owners’ trust by piling on three touchdowns, Hill delivered another dud. He was constantly running into walls at the line of scrimmage and once again ceded all passing-down work to Giovani Bernard. Game flow is a major concern for Hill going forward as the Bengals seem to go with Bernard whenever they fall behind. Hill’s fantasy owners will need Cincinnati to get ahead early next week against Buffalo.
Oct 11 - 4:54 PM

Jeremy Hill (knee) returned to a full practice on Friday and is probable for Week 5 against the Seahawks.

Hill was limited in practice all week but is ready to go. Owners employing Hill as an RB2 against Seattle will have to hope for goal-line plunges.
Oct 9 - 12:58 PM

Jeremy Hill (knee) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

He's not in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Hill hasn't had the most consistent results this year, but he is coming off a three-touchdown performance against Kansas City in Week 4.
