Jeremy Hill pulls away from Giovani Bernard


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/14/2014) Getting the start Week 15 at Cleveland only days after offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said he wanted one running back to dominate the carries, Jeremy Hill did exactly that, rushing 25 times for 148 yards and two touchdowns.

So why did Giovani Bernard also rush 15 times for 79 yards? The flow of the game had a lot to do with it. The Bengals were never really challenged during their 30-0 win, so in the fourth quarter, Bernard became more than just a change-of-pace option. He got seven of his carries on consecutive plays on the team's final drive.

When Bernard was sidelined by a hip injury in Weeks 9-11, Hill carried the load and looked like a natural with it, averaging 120.3 yards on the ground. He likely cemented the feature role with his performance in Week 15, relegating Bernard to more of a backup role.

You wouldn't know it just by looking at the box score, but given the way the carries were distributed over the course of Week 15, Hill looks like a must-start for Week 16 against Denver, and Bernard looks like an advisable sit. Most likely, the Bengals won't be running away with that game.


Bengals RB Hill dismantles Browns defense Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) The decision by Marvin Lewis to start Bengals running back Jeremy Hill on Sunday in Cleveland proved to be a wise one. Hill dominated from the start and finished with 148 yards on 25 carries and two touchdowns. He added one reception for four yards.

Hill rushed for 24 yards on the first possession and continued to shred the defense. He powered up the middle for a 2-yard touchdown to begin the rout and added a 16-yard score early in the second quarter. He had already rushed for 103 yards by halftime and hit big holes hard from beginning to end.

He will most assuredly maintain his starting spot when the Bengals host Denver on Monday Night Football in Week 16.


Get excited about Jeremy Hill


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/11/2014) On the same day offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said he wanted to give one of his two running backs the bulk of the carries instead of dividing them like he has since Giovani Bernard returned from a hip injury in Week 12, the Bengals announced that rookie Jeremy Hill would start Week 15 at the Browns.

The same Browns who rank 26th against the run, allowing 129.5 yards per game.

But the matchup isn't really the point. After the way Hill performed as the feature back in the three games Bernard missed, averaging 120.3 yards on the ground, I'd trust him against just about anybody. Granted, his one less-than-stellar showing during that stretch was against the Browns, but he got only 12 carries in what was kind of a fluky game all around. The Bengals lost 24-3.

Of course, just because Jackson wants something doesn't mean he'll get it, but applying his comments to what I know about Hill and what I know about the Browns run defense, I could see some big rushing numbers this week. Outside of PPR leagues, I can't imagine sitting the rookie.


Bengals RB Hill set to start over Bernard against Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) The Bengals are set to start Jeremy Hill as their featured back Sunday in Cleveland. It remains to be seen how his reps are divided with those of backfield mate Giovani Bernard.

Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson has stated that he would like to see one back receive a bulk of the carries so he can get into a rhythm.


Bengals OC: I'd like Hill or Bernard to dominate reps


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson has watched running backs Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill receive a nearly equal split of carries over the last three games - but that's not his preference.

"I'm used to having one guy kind of dominate some carries because in order for backs to be really good, they've got to get lathered up to play," Jackson told the team website. "You've got to get a feel for the game. We have two capable guys and they're different guys and we'll let it play itself out, but I think we have a pretty good idea which way we're headed. ... I just don't think I did a very good job this past week."

The pair combined for just 14 carries for 63 yards in the loss to Pittsburgh. The Bengals are awaiting a critical game in Cleveland on Sunday.


Bengals could move to one featured running back vs. Browns


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson sounds like he's moving towards using one featured running back to receive the lion's share of the touches in the team's Week 15 matchup with the Browns, the team's website reports.

"I'm used to having one guy kind of dominate some carries because in order for backs to be really good, they've got to get lathered up to play," Jackson said after Wednesday’s practice. "You've got to get a feel for the game. We have two capable guys and they're different guys and we'll let it play itself out, but I think we have a pretty good idea which way we're headed…Those guys are very capable. I just don't think I did a very good job this past week."

Jeremy Hill rushed for 46 yards on eight carries in Week 14 while Giovani Bernard managed 17 yards on six carries. Since Bernard returned from injury three weeks ago, Hill has carried the ball 39 times, versus 33 carries for Bernard. On the season, Hill has racked up 4.8 yards per carry, while Bernard has managed just 3.9 yards per carry.


Tough to trust Giovani Bernard or Jeremy Hill


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Bengals running backs Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill have both shown they can be big-time Fantasy contributors at various points this season, however with the duo splitting touches, it's tough to rely on either at this point.

The two combined for 20 touches in Week 14's 42-21 loss to the Steelers, about what each was getting as a full-time player. However, Hill led the way with just 6 Fantasy points, the second game in a row neither of them managed more than 6 on their own in a standard league.

Hill's Fantasy owners were thrilled with how well he performed in Bernard's absence, but that has led to an overall loss in value for both players. Hill probably rates out a bit better having racked up more carries over the last three games overall, including the only touchdown. However, neither is more than a low-end Fantasy starter down the stretch, even with a decent matchup against the Browns on the way in Week 15. 


Bengals running game can't keep up against the Steelers in Week 14


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Bengals running backs Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard only carried the ball 14 times total Sunday against the Steelers. Hill, who had eight carries for 46 yards, also had three catches for 21 yards. 

Bernard only had 17 yards on the ground and added three catches for 19 yards. This is the second week in a row both Hill and Bernard were unable to reach 50 rushing yards. 

The Bengals will get the Browns in Week 15. 


Hue Jackson has a message for rookie RB Jeremy Hill


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Bengals running back Jeremy Hill said that when quarterback Andy Dalton made checks at the line Sunday, the Buccaneers brought an extra safety into the box and defended the run well.

"They game-planned it pretty well," Hill told Bengals.com. "They brought a safety down. Whenever we caught them in a two-[safety]-high, we ran the ball pretty well. When Andy made his checks, they kind of brought the safety down."

Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson didn't like Hill's assessment, per ESPN.com, and Jackson had a message for the rookie.

"I don't know what Jeremy says," Jackson said. "They weren't responding to Andy's check. 

"Jeremy don't play quarterback. What Jeremy needs to do is run the ball," Jackson continued. "What Jeremy wants to do -- I don't care if it's eight men or seven men -- break tackles, OK? That's what running backs do. They break tackles and that's it. At the end of the day, his job is to run through somebody and come out the other side and go find a way to score, period.

"So all his dropdown -- who did this, did what -- that ain't his call."

Hill gained 40 yards on 13 carries in the 14-13 win, his lowest output since Week 8.


Bengals backfield duo just OK in defeat of Tampa Bay


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) The combination of Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill proved little more than mediocre for the Bengals on Sunday at Tampa Bay.

The pair combined for just 89 yards on 23 carries with the former more effective. Bernard rushed for 49 yards on 10 tries, including a 15-yarder on the team's second possession of the game. But he rushed for only five yards after intermission. Hill, who got the start, finished with 40 yards on 13 attempts and four catches for 12 yards.

Bernard and Hill will seek to pick up the production when the Bengals host the Steelers next Sunday.


Jeremy Hill shines in Giovani Bernard's return


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014)  Bengals running back Jeremy Hill continued to run the ball well in Week 12 against the Texans, as he outshone incumbent starter Giovani Bernard in his return from an injury.

Hill rushed for 361 yards in three games in Bernard's absence, and kept on running against the Texans, racking up a team-high 87 yards and a touchdown. Meanwhile, Bernard managed just 45 yards in the game on just one fewer carry, and didn't do much to make up the gap in the passing game.

The Bengals kept the carry split very even Sunday, and that could be the case moving forward, which might not be the best outcome for either player's value. The Bengals led early and faced little resistance from the Texans' offense, which allowed them to run the ball 43 times total.

If the Bengals are stuck playing from behind moving forward, opportunities to run the ball extensively could be much harder to come by. Still, they should be working from ahead often yet again in Week 13, with the Buccaneers on the schedule, so both Hill and Bernard might be worth starting yet again. 


Bengals' Jeremy Hill rushes for 87 yards, TD in Week 12 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Bengals running back Jeremy Hill had a team-high 87 rushing yards and one touchdown on 18 carries during a 22-13 win Week 12 at Houston. He added one catch for 9 yards.

Hill gave Cincinnati a 16-3 lead with a 2-yard touchdown run with 11:48 left in the third quarter. It was Hill's sixth rushing touchdown in 11 games.

The Bengals are back in action Week 13 at Tampa Bay.


Bengals OC Hue Jackson says he'll ease Gio Bernard back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2014) Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said running back Giovani Bernard looked "tremendous" in his return to practice Wednesday,  but indicated he'll ease him back into the lineup, reports the team's website. Jackson also praised rookie Jeremy Hill, who has two 150-yard rushing games in the past three weeks.

"With Gio just coming back, it's going to be hard for me to just thrust him in there and let him go again," Jackson said. "I think we have to work him into our process. What will determine that is just how fast and how ready he is to go."

Bernard has missed three straight games with hip and shoulder injuries. He won't dominate snaps like he did before he got hurt, and perhaps will play about 50 percent of the time Sunday at Houston, the website suggested.


Bengals' Jeremy Hill running ahead of Gio Bernard in practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2014) While Bengals running back Giovani Bernard (hip) returned to practice Wednesday, rookie Jeremy Hill was the first back up in positional drills, reports ESPN.com. It could be an indication Bernard will be limited in his first practice back from injury, the report said.

Bernard has missed three consecutive games entering Week 12 at Houston.


Bengals RB Jeremy Hill runs wild in win over Saints


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Bengals running back Jeremy Hill cracked the 150-yard mark for the second time this season, leading his team to a 27-10 victory over the Saints in Week 11.

Hill ripped the longest run of his career just before halftime. He broke free for a 62-yard run on a draw play and went down with one second remaining in the first half, which led to a field goal as the clock expired.

Hill carried the ball 27 times for 152 yards, averaging 5.6 yards per attempt. He also caught his lone target for a gain of 13 yards. He has 556 yards on the ground this season.

Cincinnati will face the Texans in Week 12.


Browns S Whitner: Bengals RB Hill 'ignorant' and 'sore loser'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Browns safety Donte Whitner termed Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill "ignorant" and a "sore loser" after the latter downplayed Cleveland following its lopsided defeat of Cincinnati on Thursday night.

Whitner was speaking to the media Friday when he responded to the comments. Hill had claimed that the Browns were worse than he expected coming into the game, adding that the loss was only the result of his team's poor performance.


Bengals RB Jeremy Hill: Browns 'not that good'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill was not in a gracious mood after a stunningly lopsided loss to visiting Cleveland on Thursday night. Rather than praise the Browns, he downplayed their performance.

Asked if he was impressed with his team's surprising AFC North rival, which secured a first-place tie in the division with a 6-3 record, Hill offered quite the opposite.

"Oh no, not at all," he told ESPN. "They're probably worse than I thought, to be honest with you. They didn't do anything special to me. I mean, respect to them, they won the game. But that's all I'll give them.

"Those guys, they're not that good. It was on us. We gave them the game, in my opinion. ... We just gave them the game. They just sat back with coverage the whole day."

Hill was held to 55 yards on the ground and contributed a fumble to the loss. His frustration reached a boiling point when he tossed his helmet on the sideline in the fourth quarter.


Bengals RB Jeremy Hill totals 61 yards in loss vs. Browns


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) Bengals running back Jeremy Hill rushed for 55 yards on just 12 carries and added one catch for six yards in his team's 24-3 loss to the Browns in Week 10.

Hill, like every other Bengals player, failed to reach the end zone on an abysmal night for the Cincinnati offense. The rookie running back did a solid job with his limited opportunities, but the Browns jumped out to an 11-point lead early in the second quarter and entered halftime up 17-3. As a result, the Bengals threw 39 passes and ran the ball just 22 times as a team.

Hill will hope to fare much better in Week 11 against the Saints, but it's possible he'll be playing that game in a timeshare with Giovani Bernard, who was inactive for Thursday's loss.


Bengals RB Jeremy Hill cites patience for Week 9 explosion


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2014) Bengals emerging rookie running back Jeremy Hill has cited patience as a key to his breakthrough performance Sunday against Jacksonville.

Hill used that patience to find a hole resulting in a 60-yard touchdown run that sealed the victory. He finished with 154 yards and two scores in 24 carries as a replacement for injured featured back Giovani Bernard, who could also be sidelined for the Thursday night game with Cleveland in town.

"I need to be patient as a runner," Hill told ESPN. "Keep pounding and keep being physical and then something will break. Our offensive line will keep on pushing, and our fullbacks and tight ends will keep on pushing and something will break."

Hill is hoping to find more holes against the Browns, who are tied for second-last in the NFL with Cincinnati with 139.6 yards rushing allowed per game.


Bengals RB Jeremy Hill expects similar workload Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2014) It appears as though the Bengals are preparing for Thursday's game against the Browns to be without starting running back Giovani Bernard again or Bernard being limited at best if he plays.

Rookie running back Jeremy Hill said Tuesday he expects to have a similar workload Thursday as he did during Sunday's win against the Jaguars, which hints at Bernard not being close to full strength due to a hip injury that sidelined him Week 9.

Hill had the best game of his young career Sunday, rushing for 154 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries. He had one catch for 9 yards.


Bengals RB Gio Bernard doesn't practice Monday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Bengals running back Giovani Bernard, who missed Sunday's win over the Jaguars with a hip injury, was not present for Monday's brief walkthrough, reports ESPN.com. The website said it appears Bernard will be classified as doubtful for Thursday's game against Cleveland.

If Bernard isn't available, rookie Jeremy Hill would start again.


Jeremy Hill shows he can star in first start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) With Giovani Bernard sidelined by a hip injury, Jeremy Hill got the chance to show the Bengals just what they got when they invested a second-round pick in him in Week 9's 33-23 win over the Jaguars.

Hill, who entered the game with 195 yards over his first seven games, rumbled for 154 yards and a pair of touchdowns Sunday. He fit the bill of a featured back in the game, as he wore the defense down and still had the energy to rush for a 60-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

And, lest we just chalk this up to a bad Jaguars defense, this is the first 100-yard game the Jaguars have allowed to a running back all season, and the first multi-touchdown game since Alfred Morris in Week 2. The Jaguars aren't good, but they had held their own against running backs prior to Sunday, allowing 3.9 yards per carry through the first eight games.

Hill filled in more than capably for Bernard, who has actually struggled to get going at times in the running game. Whether Bernard is healthy enough to play in Week 10 will define Hill's Fantasy value, however the short turnaround for Thursday's game against the Browns might mean Hill still gets a solid role with Bernard possibly worked back in slowly.


Rookie RB Jeremy Hill goes off for 163 yards, 2 TDs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill took advantage of his first start Sunday and gashed the Jaguars for 154 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries. Hill capped his day with a 60-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter and averaged 6.4 yards per carry. He added a 9-yard reception.

Hill had just 27 rushing yards at halftime after leaving in the second quarter with a knee injury. But he returned for the start of the third quarter and looked as powerful as ever. He cut back for a 1-yard touchdown run less than five minutes in and ended up carrying the ball 17 times in the second half.

Hill, who's up to five touchdowns, would start again Thursday against Cleveland if Giovani Bernard (hip) is not ready.


Bengals RB Jeremy Hill returns from knee injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill, who left the game against Jacksonville in the second quarter with a knee injury, returned to start the second half. Hill started in place of the injured Giovani Bernard.

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill limps off with knee injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Bengals running back Jeremy Hill limped off the field in the second quarter against the Jaguars with a knee injury. Hill, who started for the injured Giovani Bernard, got hurt while blocking on a pass play. The Bengals say Hill is questionable to return.
