    Bengals' C.J. Uzomah: Contributes 45 yards in Week 4 win
    5h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    C.J. Uzomah caught four of five targets for 45 yards in Thursday's 22-7 win over the Dolphins.

    The second-year pro was actually only behind A.J. Green in team receiving yardage on the night, and tied with Brandon LaFell for second-most receptions as well. Uzomah was technically behind Tyler Kroft on the depth chart in Week 3, but saw all the tight end targets Thursday and capitalized on all but one of them. Uzomah has been serviceable in Tyler Eifert's (ankle) stead, but the latter is reportedly expected to return for the Cincinnati Bengals ' Week 5 tilt versus the Cowboys according to Geoff Hobson of the team's official site.

    Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Contributes 44 yards total offense for second straight week
    5h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Giovani Bernard totaled 18 yards on 10 carries and added 24 yards through the air by snaring three of four targets in Thursday's 22-7 victory over the Dolphins.

    Bernard was once again stymied on the ground, following a Week 3 outing versus the Broncos where he managed just eight yards on five carries. However, while that type of performance against a stalwart Broncos defense was understandable, his struggles against a Dolphins unit that was missing two starting linebackers was a bit more perplexing. Nevertheless, Bernard's biggest contributions typically come in the passing game, with Jeremy Hill handling the lion's share of carries, so the lack of production on the ground is not overly concerning. Through four games, Bernard has now tallied 25 carries but already hauled in 19 passes, including one for a touchdown.

    Bengals' A.J. Green: Explodes for 173 yards, TD in Week 4 win
    5h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    A.J. Green hauled in 10 of 12 targets for 173 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 22-7 win over the Dolphins.

    The Pro Bowler got his night started off right with a highlight-worthy leaping grab of a 51-yard heave from Andy Dalton and added a 43-yard grab in the third quarter that set up a Mike Nugent field goal. He also powered his way through a Tony Lippett tackle attempt for a seven-yard touchdown in the first period and put together his second 100-yard performance over the season's first four games. After two rather ordinary performances versus the Steelers and Broncos, Green's production Thursday was a reminder of his immense value in any fantasy format, and is team-high 12 targets a testament to his role as the focal point of the Cincinnati Bengals attack.

    Bengals' Jeremy Hill: Paces rushing attack in Week 4 victory
    6h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Jeremy Hill gained 71 yards on 21 carries in Thursday's 22-7 win over the Dolphins.

    Although the Dolphins managed to limit him to 3.4 YPC and a game-long rush of 19 yards, Hill still provided the Cincinnati Bengals offense with an important measure of balance throughout the night. After totaling only 53 yards through his first two games, Hill has now put together solid back-to-back performances, gaining 168 yards over Weeks 3 and 4. He's also encouragingly seen his carries rise each successive week, and his increasing involvement and secure red-zone role make him a solid fantasy asset ,particularly in standard scoring formats.

    Bengals' Andy Dalton: Solid in efficient Week 4 victory
    6h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Andy Dalton completed 22 of 31 passes for 296 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in Thursday's 22-7 victory over the Dolphins. He also netted minus-12 yards on six rushes and fumbled twice but recovered both.

    The veteran signal-caller turned in an efficient performance against a Dolphins defense that has struggled to defend the pass through the first four weeks. Dalton's most spectacular play came on a first-quarter scramble where he deftly side-stepped the rush and slung a 51-yard heave downfield to a leaping A.J. Green, who snared the pass at its highest point. He also found four other receivers on the night, but looked Green's way the most by far (10 targets). Through four weeks, Dalton has put the ball up 146 times, as compared to the 116 attempts he tallied over the same time period last season. Despite the considerable uptick, he's only netted three touchdown passes, but the Cincinnati Bengals ' aggressive air approach, if it endures, could certainly pay dividends for Dalton's fantasy owners throughout the season.

    Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Quiet in Week 4 loss
    6h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    DeVante Parker (hamstring) secured two of three targets for 20 yards in Thursday's 22-7 loss to the Bengals.

    The second-year pro couldn't forge many connections with Ryan Tannehill on a night where the Miami Dolphins QB was continually harassed and therefore found time in the pocket to often be at a premium. Parker's downfield routes often need at least a few seconds to develop, which wasn't a luxury that the Bengals' formidable pass rush afforded very often Thursday. Parker's performances through the three games he has played have ranged from impressive to mediocre, but his vast upside certainly remains. However, given the current state of the Dolphins' virtually non-existent rushing attack, it may take a return by Arian Foster to the lineup to open things up consistently for the second-year pro and the Miami passing game as a whole.

    Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill: Struggles throughout forgetable Week 4 performance
    6h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Ryan Tannehill completed 15 of 25 passes for 189 yards with a touchdown and interception in Thursday's 22-7 loss to the Bengals. He took five sacks and lost a fumble as well.

    The stark reality of a complete absence of an NFL-caliber running attack smacked Tannehill and the Miami Dolphins in the face in this one, as the Bengals seemed largely unconcerned with Miami's ground attack. Instead, they pinned their ears back and came after Tannehill, who was harassed frequently in addition to the five takedowns he endured. The highlight of the fifth-year pro's evening-- and that of the team as a whole for that matter-- was a pretty 74-yard scoring connection to a wide open Kenny Stills in the first quarter. Besides the typically reliable Jarvis Landry, who hauled in 70 percent of his 10 targets, Tannehill only completed two other passes to a receiver after that early bomb, both of which went to DeVante Parker. Tannehill and the Dolphins will now have 10 days to prepare for a rebound in a Week 5 home date with the Titans.

    Bears' Jay Cutler: No practice Thursday

    Jay Cutler (thumb) didn't take part in Thursday's practice, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Head coach John Fox more or less termed Thursday's DNP a precautionary measure, which lines up with Fox's contention Wednesday that Cutler will be evaluated "day-to-day" this week. Speaking of Wednesday, Cutler was unable to do a "whole lot" during his limited showing. As a result, his activity level Friday will likely hold a lot of sway toward his potential to play Sunday against the Lions. Another absence from Cutler would place Brian Hoyer under center for the second consecutive game.

He's upbeat and feeling good, and he has worked really, really hard to do everything he can to be right, and he's going to [practice]. We'll know more after today what he feels like." Indeed, Wilson has brushed off the MCL sprain in his left knee and turned in an untarnished practice, just as he did after suffering a sprained right ankle in Week 1. Outside of drills, rehabilitation will consume the remainder of his preparation for Sunday's contest versus the Jets in New York. Although Wilson is trending toward active status, Carroll expects his starting QB to wear a knee brace if he suits up, which could hamper his noted ability to improvise.

    Jay Ajayi totaled 33 yards on six carries and secured both of his targets for 13 yards in Thursday's 22-7 loss to the Bengals.

    The second-year back led a paltry running attack and did manage 5.5 yards per tote, but the Miami Dolphins ' offense as a whole was largely bogged down after an early 74-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Tannehill to Kenny Stills. Ajayi was second in carries to Kenyan Drake in last week's overtime victory over the Browns, but outpaced him by four totes in Thursday's contest. However, neither back appears to be the answer to providing head coach Adam Gase's offense a semblance of balance, leaving the Dolphins hoping for an Arian Foster (groin) recovery in time for the Week 5 tilt against the Titans in 10 days.

    Ryan Tannehill's favorite target was his typically active and reliable self, serving as the most dependable source of offense on a night where the Miami Dolphins ended seven offensive possessions in punts. Landry didn't appear to show any ill effects from the shoulder ailment he battled throughout the short practice week and is now averaging a whopping 11 targets through four games, with double-digit looks in each contest. Irrespective of Miami's overall fortunes, Landry once again looks like one of the most prolific producers in the league in PPR formats and DFS cash games.

The majority of the targets the rest of the night went to Jarvis Landry, with Stills seeing a noticeable drop from the season-high eight he saw in Week 3 versus the Browns. With DeVante Parker and Jarvis Landry seemingly commanding the majority of Tannehill's attention week-to-week, Stills' appears to be heavily big play-dependent for his fantasy production to date this season.

    The Baltimore Ravens seemed oddly content to settle for a long field goal with the game on the line, but it perhaps makes a bit more sense for a team that has one of the best kickers in league history. Given his incredible accuracy and leg strength, Tucker is one of the few kickers that deserves fantasy consideration even if he's attached to a lousy offense. The Baltimore offense seems mediocre more so than bad, which makes Tucker one of the better options at his position. He connected from 54, 43, 42 and 37 yards in Sunday's game, with the longest of those putting the Ravens ahead with 62 seconds remaining. Fire him up with confidence Week 4 against Oakland, even though he doesn't particularly like kicking at his home stadium, with career splits that back up his assertion that it's a difficult place to make field goals.

    The NFL has suspended Vontaze Burfict for the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated violations of safety-related playing rules, the NFL reports.

    Burfict has oscillated between brilliant and bone-headed during his four-year career, and Saturday's wild-card defeat to the Steelers was no exception. Although his strip sack of Ben Roethlisberger (a play in which the quarterback was knocked out until the final drive due to a shoulder injury) and interception of backup Landry Jones spurred the Cincinnati Bengals ' comeback bid, he also committed a crucial unnecessary roughness penalty on Antonio Brown with 22 seconds remaining, which compounded with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty from Adam Jones to set up the Steelers' game-winning field goal. On a more serious note, Burfict has been flagged for 14 unnecessary roughness calls since he entered the professional ranks in 2012, seemingly necessitating Monday's action from the NFL. Pending an appeal, he'll begin the suspension in Week 1 of next season.
