Jeremy Hill rushed 17 times for 97 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals' Week 3 loss to the Broncos.
Hill's big fantasy game was the unlikeliest one on a day full of highs and lows. Hill busted an early 50-yard run and scored twice from short distance to give the Bengals an early lead, but faded into the background as Cincinnati fell behind in the second half. Hill has been highly inconsistent early in the year and will remain that way in an RBBC with Gio. With that said, Hill will be a stronger RB2 play when the Bengals host the Dolphins on Thursday Night Football in Week 4. Sep 25 - 4:44 PM

Jeremy Hill rushed 11 times for 22 yards and caught 3-of-5 targets for 37 yards Week 2 against the Steelers.

The Bengals had zero success running the ball against the Steelers, and they basically abandoned the run late in the game. Hill now has just 53 yards rushing on 20 carries through two weeks, and the road does not get any easier with the Broncos next up on the schedule. Hill will be no better than an RB3 in that game.
Sep 18 - 5:34 PM

Jeremy Hill rushed nine times for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' Week 1 win over the Jets.

He was not targeted in the passing game. Hill out-touched Gio Bernard 9 to 7, but the Bengals scrapped the rushing attack early and were beat badly in the time-of-possession battle by the Jets. Hill will be a better fantasy bet in games against softer rush defenses than New York's. Unfortunately, the Bengals face the Steelers in Week 2 and the Broncos in Week 3.
Sep 11 - 4:23 PM

Jeremy Hill rushed eight times for 21 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' third preseason game Sunday night.

He added 28 yards on a screen pass. The average does not look great, but four of the attempts came as he tried to punch it into the end zone inside the five. He was successful on the fourth attempt, showing good speed to get the corner before diving for the pylon. Unlikely to play next week, Hill finishes the preseason with 53 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries. He looks poised for a bounce back.

The Cincinnati Enquirer expects the Bengals to "swing back closer" to a power-running offense featuring Jeremy Hill this season.

With Tyler Eifert healthy and Marvin Jones opposite A.J. Green, the 2015 Bengals incorporated more spread-passing concepts under ex-OC Hue Jackson. The Enquirer's Paul Dehner says "the success of (Andy) Dalton and abundance of passing-game weapons didn't play into Hill's strength last year." Under new OC Ken Zampese, Dehner forsees Cincinnati resuming a rushing-oriented approach with Hill behind FB Ryan Hewitt. Dehner is also buying the narrative that Hill's "razor focus and desire to return to rookie form are very real this offseason."
Aug 26 - 12:55 PM

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner Jr. believes Jeremy Hill is "going to have a huge year."

Dehner also said he expects Hill to record more yards from scrimmage than Gio Bernard. Coming off a disappointing sophomore effort, Hill has looked excellent so far this preseason. He is a nice value in the fifth and sixth rounds.
Aug 23 - 12:46 PM

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

The "starter" designation doesn't mean much in an obvious committee like Cincinnati's, but it's an indication the coaching staff is giving Hill the benefit of the doubt after last year's dismal campaign. Giovani Bernard will remain one of the league's most heavily-featured third-down backs, but the only thing standing in Hill's way on early downs is himself.
Aug 8 - 3:02 PM

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner expects a "huge year" for Jeremy Hill in 2016.

Dehner says Hill "looked really good" in the offseason program. Although many have forecasted a bigger role for Giovani Bernard following Cincinnati's pass-catcher losses, it should be noted that the Bengals have historically leaned more heavily on Hill when Tyler Eifert in particular has missed time. Gio managed receiving lines of 1-9-0, 4-18-0, and 4-29-0 on target counts of 1, 4, and 5 in Eifert's three missed games last season. Hill's touch totals were 22, 19, and 21 in those contests.
Jul 25 - 4:21 PM

Jeremy Hill rushed 12 times for 50 yards and a touchdown and caught 3-of-4 targets for 27 yards in the Bengals' Wild Card loss to the Steelers.

Hill helped spark the comeback attempt with a goal-line plunge in the fourth quarter and made a couple big receptions once Gio Bernard was forced from the game with a concussion, but the lasting memory of Hill's performance will be his lost fumble with under a minute-and-a-half left in the game. The Steelers took advantage of Hill's misstep as well as two senseless personal fouls from Vontaze Burfict and Adam Jones to march down the field for a game-winning field goal. It was a fitting end to Hill's up-and-down season. With OC Hue Jackson likely gone and Gio Bernard a constant threat to his workload, Hill cannot be viewed as anything more than an RB2 heading into the offseason.
Jan 10 - 1:02 AM

Jeremy Hill rushed for 96 yards and one touchdown on 16 carries in the Bengals' Week 17 win over the Ravens.

With the Bengals facing 4th-and-1 in the third quarter and ahead 14-9 on the scoreboard, they went for it and handed it off to Hill, who ran right between the guards up the gut for a 38-yard touchdown. It was Hill's first run of 20-plus yards all season and a flashback to what we saw from him in 2014. Hills has received at least 16 carries in all three game A.J. McCarron has started, and the Bengals will likely try to lean on him even more in the Wild Card matchup with the Steelers next weekend. Hill wraps up the regular season with 223 carries for 794 yards (3.6 YPC) and 11 touchdowns.
Jan 3 - 11:01 PM

Jeremy Hill rushed 19 times for 63 yards in the Bengals' Week 16 loss to the Broncos on Monday night.

He caught both of his pass-game targets for minus-two yards. Hill out-snapped teammate Giovani Bernard 38-35 and was leaned on pretty heavily on early downs in the first half when the Bengals jumped out to a 14-0 lead. But once the game got close in the second half, it was mostly Bernard in the backfield. Hill saw just six carries after halftime. The Bengals will close out the regular season against the Ravens in Week 17.

Jeremy Hill rushed 19 times for 31 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals' Week 15 win over the 49ers.

Hill was targeted once and did not catch it. In a game that set up well for Hill on paper, fantasy owners were lucky to come away with the pair of short scores. Along with Gio Bernard (14-33 rushing), the Bengals' run game got nothing going in the Bay Area. Despite his penchant for hitting pay dirt, Hill will continue to be a dicey RB2/flex option in Week 16 against the Broncos.

Jeremy Hill rushed seven times for 16 yards in the Bengals' Week 14 loss to the Steelers.

He also caught two passes for eight yards. Hill split carries with Giovani Bernard, who rushed six times for 40 yards. The Bengals were trailing by multiple scores much of the afternoon, which led to plenty of passing attempts for A.J. McCarron and limited snaps for Hill. Things should be different next week in a home date with the 49ers' bottom-barrel defense.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 05:31:00 PM

Jeremy Hill rushed 22 times for 98 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' Week 13 win over the Browns.

The Bengals were able to ride their running game in this 37-3 rout. Hill nearly had a second score, but was stuffed at the goal line in the fourth quarter before K Mike Nugent entered to finish off the drive. Hill scored two touchdowns in Week 11 against the Cardinals, set a season high for total yards (100) in Week 12 against the Rams, and established a season high for rushing yardage Sunday in Cleveland. He's reentered mid-range to high-end RB2 territory ahead of a Week 14 date with Pittsburgh's stout run defense.

Bengals OC Hue Jackson had a private meeting with Jeremy Hill before last week's game.

"The guy has scored a lot of touchdowns, but we know he’s not running like he has the ability to run," Jackson said. "He recognizes what he needs to do and he got back to his focus in my opinion of what he needed to do and I think we are seeing the fruits of that." It may simply be a coincidence, but Hill had by far his best rushing day of the season the day after the meeting against St. Louis. Hill's 100 total yards against the Rams were easily his most of the season, and he has now put together back-to-back solid fantasy performances. Hill has a great chance to add to that run this week against Cleveland's terrible run defense.
