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.

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.

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.

RotoGrinders.com 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.
Sat, Dec 24, 2016 11:25:00 PM

Despite being listed as questionable, ESPN's Bob Holtzman reports Jeremy Hill (knee) is expected to start Saturday night's game against the Texans.

Hill went from no practice on Wednesday to limited practice on Thursday, followed by a full practice on Friday. That kind of trend usually indicates a player is going to play. Hill will be a volume-driven RB2 option against a stout Texans run defense. Rex Burkhead will continue to serve as Hill's change of pace.

Jeremy Hill (knee) is questionable for Week 16 against the Texans.

He's fully expected to play after returning to practice Thursday. Hill has been pretty underwhelming against non-Browns teams and is heavily reliant on touchdowns. Treat him as a back-end RB2 with scoring upside.
Fri, Dec 23, 2016 01:04:00 PM

Jeremy Hill (knee) returned to Bengals practice on Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Hill hasn't missed a game yet this year and we're guessing that streak will remain intact Saturday against the Texans. The Bengals won't have to rely on Hill quite as heavily now that A.J. Green is back from a hamstring injury, but he's still a good bet for 15-20 carries, if not more. Hill will be in the RB2 conversation for championship week.
Thu, Dec 22, 2016 01:32:00 PM

Jeremy Hill (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

Find us one healthy player this time of year. Hill's status for Week 16 is completely up in the air, but for now we'd expect him to play against the Texans. Rex Burkhead and Cedric Peerman are left behind Hill on the depth chart.

Jeremy Hill rushed 20 times for 43 yards and a touchdown Week 15 against the Steelers.

He added eight yards on one catch. Hill got going on the second series of the game with runs of 12 and seven yards on back to back plays, but he was stuffed at the goal line three straight times before Andy Dalton finished the drive with a sneak. Hill got his revenge later in the quarter, finding the end zone from four yards out, but that was the end of his success as the Steelers locked up the offense in the second half. Hill has now scored a touchdown in three straight and has at least 20 carries in every game over that span. He will be a solid RB2 against the Texans on Christmas Eve.

Jeremy Hill totaled 111 yards on 25 carries and caught three-of-four targets for 31 yards Sunday in the Bengals' Week 14 win over the Browns.

If there’s one thing Hill knows how to do, it’s beating up on the Browns. Hill gashed Cleveland for 192 yards (168 rushing, 24 receiving) when he faced them in Week 7 and was at it again with another big game in Week 14. The 25 carries he logged were his most since Week 15 of his rookie season in 2014. Fourteen of his carries came after halftime as the Bengals leaned heavily on their running game in the second half. It was a needed bounceback game for Hill after averaging just 1.54 yards per carry over his previous two outings. Hill will be on the RB2 map next week against the Steelers.
