News: The Bengals promoted running back Dan Herron from the practice squad to the active roster Tuesday.
Analysis: Herron will be just roster depth for Cincinnati because backup running back Cedric Peerman is hurt. There is no need to add Herron in Fantasy.
News: The Bengals official team website reports that rookie running back Dan Herron is not practicing Tuesday because he was in a walking boot. The extent and exact nature of his injury is unknown.
Analysis: Herron hopefully will be ready for the start of training camp, but he will likely provide depth for the Bengals and see little action on offense. He has minimal Fantasy value and is not worth drafting in the majority of leagues.
News: The Bengals took Ohio State running back Dan "Boom" Herron with a sixth-round pick in the NFL Draft. Despite missing half of his senior season because of the school's tattoo-parlor scandal, the 5-foot-10, 213-pound Herron had 1,155 yards and 16 rushing touchdowns as a junior.
Analysis: Herron is more physical than fast and might have to land a job on special teams before getting any kind of playing time on offense. He's worth a late pick in dynasty/keeper leagues and rookie-only drafts.
