Bengals' Jeremy Hill: Facing major challenge from Mixon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill received serious competition during the draft when the Bengals selected fellow running back Joe Mixon in the second round at No. 48 overall, Geoff Hobson of the team's official website reports.

Widely regarded as a first-round talent, Mixon probably wouldn't have lasted until the second day of the draft if not for a 2014 incident in which he punched a female Oklahoma student. His landing spot comes as no surprise, with the Bengals in need of a running back and already possessing a well-established reputation for adding or keeping players who come at a discount due to off-field incidents. A second-round selection (2014) himself, Hill has 30 touchdowns in 47 career games, but he's fallen shy of 4.0 yards per carry in consecutive seasons after averaging 5.1 as a rookie. He now finds himself in serious danger of losing the lead ball-carrier job as he enters a contract season, but it does at least seem Hill is embracing the challenge, as he already reached out to Mixon and told the rookie he's glad to have him around. A capable pass catcher in addition to an explosive runner, Mixon could also threaten some of Giovani Bernard's (torn ACL) usual workload.

Bengals' Jeremy Hill: Ready to possibly compete with rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill said he isn't worried about the possibility of Cincinnati using an early draft pick on a running back,'s reports. "If they wanna draft the back high, go ahead and do it," said Hill. "They're probably going to be my backup."

With Giovani Bernard (knee) rehabbing from a torn ACL and Hill coming off back-to-back seasons with under 4.0 yards per carry, the Bengals figure to draft a running back for the first time since using a second-rounder on Hill in 2014. Depending on how early the position is addressed, Hill could even enter training camp as an underdog to retain his role as Cincinnati's lead ball-carrier. The team also figures to address a line that lost left tackle Andrew Whitworth and left guard Kevin Zeitler -- players that Hill referred to as the team's two best offensive linemen. Despite scoring 30 touchdowns in 47 career games, the 24-year-old running back will enter his contract season with a ton to prove. If he doesn't get his YPC mark back above 4.0, he may be pigeon-holed as a goal-line/short-yardage specialist when he hits the open market next offseason.

Bengals' Jeremy Hill: Still has confidence of coaches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cincinnati coaching staff believes Hill can regain his 2014 rookie-year form, reports.

Hill's volume near the goal line has partially obscured his general ineffectiveness as a runner, with his 20 rushing scores over the past two seasons nullifying the fantasy impact of his meager YPC marks -- 3.6 in 2015, 3.8 in 2016. He was far more effective as a rookie, picking up 5.1 yards per carry on his way to a 1,000-yard rushing season, and even catching 27 of his 32 targets. Despite the prolonged struggles, Hill is in line for another shot at leading the Cincinnati backfield as he enters the final year of his contract. He could also take on more of a pass-catching role, as Rex Burkhead departed for New England in free agency, while Gio Bernard (torn ACL) may not be a full-go for Week 1. On the other hand, the aforementioned backfield issues could simply lead Cincinnati to address the position in the draft, which might give Hill some serious competition for the early-down work he's traditionally dominated.

Bengals' Jeremy Hill: Finishes season over 1,000 total yards with nine touchdowns
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Hill rushed 222 times for 839 yards and nine touchdowns while catching 21 passes on 27 targets for 174 yards in 15 games this season.

Hill missed Cincinnati's final regular-season game due to a knee problem, but that was mostly due to the Bengals being out of contention and wanting to get him out of harm's way. A second-round pick in 2014, Hill has scored at least nine touchdowns in each of his three professional seasons. Although that's made him an impactful fantasy commodity, Hill's production has otherwise been wildly inefficient since his rookie campaign. He notched 5.1 yards per carry that year, but Hill has averaged just 3.7 yards since, and he topped 4.0 yards per rush in only three games this season. He also had nine games of under 50 rushing yards despite teammate Giovani Bernard (knee) landing on injured reserve in November. As a result of Bernard rehabbing from that ailment and the inconsistent Hill entering the final year of his rookie contract, the Bengals could add to their backfield options in some fashion this offseason, reports. That could give the 24-year-old Hill more incentive to prove his worth next year, but it could also affect his workload if he remains so unproductive on a per-carry basis.

Bengals' Jeremy Hill: Not suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (knee) is listed as inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens.

Hill suited up in Week 16, but was clearly hobbled by a knee injury, and ended up logging just 13 offensive snaps. The Bengals won't risk any further injury in a relatively meaningless regular season finale, leaving backfield duties to Rex Burkhead and Cedric Peerman.
