Brandon LaFell (knee) is questionable for Week 11 against the Broncos.

He practiced fully Friday, so LaFell should be out there. Coming off his best game of the season, LaFell isn't a recommended fantasy play in Denver.
Nov 17 - 12:43 PM

Bengals CB Adam Jones (concussion) did not practice Thursday.

He also sat out Wednesday, making it unlikely Jones will suit up this week. William Jackson (toe), who returned to practice Thursday, will likely get the start with Jones sidelined.

Brandon LaFell (knee) returned to practice Thursday.

He was "limited." It puts LaFell on track to play, but even coming off a breakout game he will not be a fantasy option in Denver.

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis called out first-round WR John Ross for quitting on a route Week 10 against the Titans.

Ross slowed down on a deep route down the sideline because he thought the ball was going elsewhere, but Andy Dalton sent it his way. Ross could not catch up, and it fell incomplete. "John had a play last week we weren’t very thrilled with," Lewis said. "He let his teammates down. He let me down. He let Andy down." Those are strong words which punctuate what has been a disappointing first season for the rookie speedster. A healthy scratch Week 9, it would not be surprising if Ross is headed toward the same fate this weekend.

Brandon LaFell (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.

LaFell had a knee issue back in Week 4 but played through it. He's coming off a 6-95-1 game against the Titans for his first 50-yard game of the year. LaFell won't be a recommended play this week against Denver.

Bengals signed RB Brian Hill.

LB Hardy Nickerson was waived in a corresponding roster move. Hill had been on the Falcons' practice squad. With Jeremy Hill joining Cedric Peerman on injured reserve, Hill should immediately slot in as the Bengals' No. 3 running back. Hill was the No. 156 overall pick of the draft, and is a power back in Hill's mold.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Bengals WLB Vontaze Burfict will not be suspended for making contact with an official Week 10.

The ejection was weak to say the least, so it is good to see the league show restraint despite Burfict's history. He will be back in the lineup this Sunday against the Broncos.
Nov 13 - 9:43 AM

Giovani Bernard rushed two times for ten yards and caught all five of his targets for 38 yards in Week 10 against the Titans.

Bernard continues to score the majority of his points through the passing game. Receiving five targets is encouraging, but he was out-snapped by RB Joe Mixon 30-to-21. Bernard shouldn't be started in any formats in Week 11 against Denver.
Nov 12 - 6:07 PM

Joe Mixon rushed nine times for 37 yards and a touchdown in Week 10 against the Titans.

He added one catch for three yards. Mixon was more efficient than usual but with the Bengals getting dominated in time of possession he wasn't able to get many carries. He out-snapped RB Giovani Bernard 30-to-21 even with plenty of negative game-script. Mixon will be a RB2 against Denver in Week 11.
Nov 12 - 5:59 PM

Brandon LaFell caught six-of-10 targets for 95 yards and one touchdown in Week 10 against the Titans.

LaFell led the team in targets with 10. His touchdown came on a 37-yard pass where he was wide open in the middle of the field. LaFell has had a few big games this season but his floor is extremely low. He shouldn't be on the fantasy radar in Week 11 against the Broncos.
Nov 12 - 5:49 PM

A.J. Green nabbed five-of-seven targets for 115 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 10 loss to the Colts.

Green racked up the majority of his fantasy points on a slant where he beat the corner and made the safety miss, running easily into the end zone for 70 yards. Green is consistently Dalton's best option but was out targeted by Brandon LaFell ten-to-seven. Green has a difficult matchup next week against the Broncos.
Nov 12 - 5:40 PM

Andy Dalton completed 20-of-35 passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns in Week 10 against the Titans.

Dalton played fairly well on early downs but struggled mightily on 3rd downs as the Bengals converted only 1-of-10 attempts on the day. The Bengals were more than doubled in time-of-possession, limiting the overall output of the Bengals offense. A big chunk of Dalton's yards came on two long touchdowns, a 37-yard pass to Brandon LaFell early in the game and a 70-yard strike to A.J. Green in the fourth quarter. Dalton shouldn't be started in Week 11 against the Broncos.
Nov 12 - 5:23 PM

Bengals WLB Vontaze Burfict's was ejected from Week 10 against the Titans.

Burfict was ejected for making contact with an official. He continues to show a lack of maturity after being suspended multiple times in his career.
Nov 12 - 2:19 PM

John Ross is active for Week 10 against the Titans.

Ross was a healthy scratch for Week 9 after playing six snaps in Week 8. He likely won't have a big role this week.
Nov 12 - 11:58 AM

Bengals declared WR Tyler Boyd, CB KeiVarae Russell, S Shawn Williams, LB Kevin Minter, OL Alex Redmond, OL Christian Westerman, and DT Pat Sims inactive for Week 10 against the Titans.

Rookie WR John Ross is active and should continue to see an increased role in the offense.
