Patriots signed RB Jeremy Hill.
Hill didn't draw any free agent interest outside of the Patriots. He's coming off three straight sub-4.0 YPC seasons and had just 37 carries in 2017 despite starting every game before landing on IR. Hill will be part of a committee in New England, but there's not much in the way of carries. There's some rebound potential for Hill if he locks down a red-zone role. Mar 16 - 7:05 PM

Date:

Free agent RB Jeremy Hill will visit the Patriots on Friday.

It's the first we've heard of Hill since January, when he posted on social media that he didn't expect to be back with the Bengals. Hill was grinding through another disappointing season in 2017 before undergoing ankle surgery. Were Hill to end up in New England, it would be bad news for Mike Gillislee.
Mar 15 - 8:10 PM

Free agent Jeremy Hill doesn't expect to re-sign with the Bengals.

This is just confirming the obvious. Hill had only 37 carries despite starting all seven games before landing on IR with ankle surgery last year. He'll likely have to settle for a committee role wherever he lands this offseason.
Jan 31 - 5:02 PM

Impending free agent Jeremy Hill is fully expected to move on from the Bengals.

Beat writers Jim Owczarski and Paul Dehner put the chances of the Bengals re-signing Hill at one percent. It's a massive long shot. Hill needed ankle surgery in November, ending his season, but he's expected to be fully healthy sometime this month. Hill had a big rookie season and scored 29 touchdowns his first three seasons, but he's averaged just 3.6 YPC his last three seasons, spanning 482 carries. Hill is still just 25 but is just an early-down, goal-line bruiser.
Jan 19 - 11:26 AM

Bengals placed RB Jeremy Hill (ankle surgery) on injured reserve.

Hill has been struggling with an ankle injury the past two weeks and was inactive in Week 9. This locks in Joe Mixon for early-down work and goal-line carries for the rest of the season, giving him middling RB2 value.

Jeremy Hill (ankle) is out for Week 10 against the Titans.

As expected. Joe Mixon should get the start and cede some pass-game work to Giovani Bernard. Mixon hasn't done anything special as a rookie and isn't scoring touchdowns, making him a low-end RB2 in a slow-paced game.

Jeremy Hill (ankle) did not practice Thursday.

He also missed Wednesday's session, making it likely he sits out this week. Joe Mixon should dominate snaps and carries with Hill out.

Jeremy Hill (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

He was injured in pregame warmups ahead of the Week 9 tilt with the Jaguars. Rookie Joe Mixon made the start and played 28-of-39 offensive snaps and scored a touchdown on 13 carries. Mixon will be an RB2 if Hill sits.

Jeremy Hill is inactive for Week 9 against the Jagaurs.

The Bengals didn't list Hill on the injury report. He wasn't cleared after an ankle injury popped up in pre-game warmups. Hill has started every game, but doesn't play more than a few snaps. Joe Mixon will have a full workload with Hill sidelined.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 11:38:00 AM

Jeremy Hill tallied 11 yards on four carries Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 8 win over the Colts.

Hill got the start, for some reason, but was rarely heard from after that, only drawing one carry after halftime. He hasn’t topped 20 yards rushing in a game since Week 3 and hasn’t caught a pass since Week 4. His days of fantasy relevance, at least in Cincinnati, are long over.

Jeremy Hill rushed four times for seven yards in the Bengals' Week 7 loss to the Steelers.

Hill only played on nine of 51 total snaps. He'll continue to be used in a limited role and has little fantasy value.
Sun, Oct 22, 2017 09:20:00 PM

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.
Sun, Oct 8, 2017 05:04:00 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.
Sun, Oct 1, 2017 05:37:00 PM

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.
Sun, Sep 24, 2017 08:10:00 PM

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.
