Jeremy Hill reaches paydirt in Week 3 win vs. Titans


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Bengals running back Jeremy Hill rushed for 39 yards on seven carries and scored a touchdown in his team's 33-7 win over the Titans in Week 3.

Hill put the icing on a dominant Cincinnati win with his fourth-quarter score from four yards out. He received just three carries in the game before toting the ball four times on that fourth-quarter scoring drive. The Bengals chose to turn to Giovani Bernard on goal-line carries earlier in the game, with the starter converting twice from one yard out. While Bernard has averaged 3.4 yards per carry or fewer in each of the team's first three wins, Hill hasn't averaged less than 4.8 yards per carry in a game this season. The Bengals will head to New England in Week 5 after a bye.


Jeremy Hill takes out the garbage nicely


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Though rookie running back Jeremy Hill was involved in the Bengals offense from the beginning Week 2 against the Falcons, the majority of his work came in garbage time, amounting to 15 carries for 74 yards and a touchdown as well as two catches for 22 yards.

He performed well as a change-of-pace option for Giovani Bernard in the first half, rushing five times for 39 yards, but his other 10 carries, including his 1-yard touchdown run, came with the Bengals already leading by multiple touchdowns in the second half.

Bernard nearly doubled his career high with 27 carries on the day, so clearly Hill's bigger-than-expected workload didn't cut into his. The rookie remains more or less just a backup for what figures to be a more challenging matchup Week 3 against the Titans.


Jeremy Hill expected to get more work moving forward


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Bengals coach Hue Jackson told The Cincinnati Enquirer Monday he intends to get Jeremy Hill more work than he had in Week 1 against the Ravens Sunday.

Hill played just 10 snaps in his NFL debut Sunday, but Jackson acknowledged that was more a result of the gameplan and situations the Bengals were in. Jackson told Hill after the game he expects him to be playing more moving forward.

Hill recorded just 19 yards on four rushes in his first game. 


Jeremy Hill does little in debut


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Bengals reserve running back Jeremy Hill made little impact in his NFL debut Sunday, in a 23-16 Week 1 win over the Ravens.

Hill had just four rushes for 19 yards in the game, and did not feature into the passing game. The Bengals' next game is set for Week 2 against the Falcons.  


Jeremy Hill probably a Fantasy reserve to open his career


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Bengals rookie Jeremy Hill impressed in the preseason and should be in line for a decent workload as the team gets set to open the season in Week 1 against the Ravens.

Head coach Marvin Lewis noted recently that Hill is likely to see a smaller workload than starter Giovani Bernard, but he is not likely to get buried. The team found success while using two backs a year ago, when Bernard split time with BenJarvus Green-Ellis. In two games against the Ravens a year ago, the secondary running back still received 20 touches between the two games, so Hill could reach double digits by the end of Sunday's game.

Hill has a chance to force his way into a more significant role down the road, but Fantasy owners probably want to take a wait-and-see approach while we see exactly how his role shakes out. Outside of deeper leagues as a flex option, he has little appeal for Week 1. 


Giovani Bernard to get only 'a little more' work than Jeremy Hill


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Impressive rookie running back Jeremy Hill appears destined not to receive as many carries as Bengals more established back Giovani Bernard. But, according to Marvin Lewis, it could be close.

"A smart guy says Gio gets a little more," Lewis said via NBC Sports.

Hill thoroughly outperformed Bernard in the preseason. The former averaged 4.6 YPC on 41 attempts while the latter rushed for 49 yards in 20 tries. Hill even displayed his talents as a pass-catcher with 10 receptions for 91 yards. Bernard, who has thrived in that capacity, managed just four catches for 16 yards.


Jeremy Hill shakes off elbow injury, racks up 160 yards of total offense


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill returned to action in the second half of Thursday's preseason finale against the Colts. Hill, who went down with right elbow injury late in the first half, returned and finished with 20 handoffs for 90 yards, averaging 4.5 yards per attempt, and caught all six of his targets for 70 yards.

Jeremy Hill exits preseason finale with elbow injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill was forced out of Thursday's preseason finale against the Colts with a right elbow injury, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Hill sustained the injury while stretching for a first down late in the first half. He had 20 touches before the injury. He had 15 carries for 60 yards, averaging 4.0 yards per attempt, and caught all five of his targets for 63 yards. His return has been listed as probable.


Gio Bernard, Jeremy Hill each projected with 200 carries


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) The Bengals' official website was impressed with rookie Jeremy Hill's power running in the third preseason game. Writer Geoff Hobson opined "it looks like Giovani Bernard and Hill could both get about 200 attempts."

Bernard figures to be prominent in the passing game, while Hill is expected to get a lot of goal-line and short-yardage carries.


Jeremy Hill establishes himself as short-yardage back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) The Bengals couldn't run at all against the Cardinals until rookie Jeremy Hill entered Sunday's game on the fifth series. On 3rd-and-1 from the Cincinnati 34, Hill followed fullback Ryan Hewitt for 5 yards, sparking two long drives resulting in field goals.

"I want to know who we are," offensive coordinator Hue Jackson told the team's website. "There were other things on the sheet I could have called, but I wanted to find out who we are and I think I'm beginning to know who we are."

Hill finished with 48 yards on 12 carries, adding two catches for 9 yards, and has rushed for 100 yards on 21 totes (4.8 ypc) this preseason.

The 6-1, 238-pounder said that as a big back, he prides himself on "being 100 percent on third-and-shorts and goal-line situations."


Jeremy Hill looks productive with first unit


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill saw work with the first unit during Sunday's preseason tuneup against Arizona.

Hill didn't get his first touch until the second quarter. He had three runs of at least 5 yards while with the first team. With the starters, he took four handoffs for 23 yards. Overall, he finished with 10 carries for 38 yards. He also caught two passes for 9 yards.

Jeremy Hill to gain first-team experience Sunday night


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill is set to play some with the first unit in the team's preseason game Sunday in Arizona.

Giovani Bernard remains clearly the featured back, but the Cincinnati coaches want to give Hill a shot with and against first-teamers. Marvin Lewis said Hill will "probably" work some with that group, ESPN has reported. Hill has practiced with the first team, but has not spent much time with it in game situations.


Jeremy Hill, four other injured Bengals practice


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Five notable Bengals players practiced Tuesday, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports: running back Jeremy Hill (shoulder), linebacker Sean Porter (knee), cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (hip), quarterback Jason Campbell (elbow) and offensive lineman Andre Smith (concussion protocol).


Jeremy Hill: 'I'm fine'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill, who left Saturday's game with a shoulder injury, tweeted, "I'm fine." Hill carried three times for 16 yards and caught two passes for 13 yards before the injury.

He's averaging 5.7 yards per carry in the preseason.


Jeremy Hill departs preseason game with shoulder injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Bengals running back Jeremy Hill left Saturday's preseason game against the Jets with a shoulder injury.

Hill, who worked with the backups, sustained the injury on a hard hit by A.J. Edds and T.J. Barnes for a loss of 3 yards in the third quarter. He was taken back to the locker room for further evaluation and ruled out for the remainder of the game. He finished with three carries for 16 yards on the ground and two receptions for 13 yards.

Hill is fighting to become the No. 2 running back behind behind starter Giovani Bernard.

Jeremy Hill is No. 2 running back in preseason opener


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) The Bengals trotted out rookie Jeremy Hill as their No. 2 running back in Thursday's preseason opener against the Chiefs. Hill rushed five times for 27 yards (5.4 ypc), continuing to stake his claim to a significant role behind starter Giovani Bernard.

Veteran BenJarvus Green-Ellis served as the third-string back.


Jeremy Hill headed for 10-15 touches?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/7/2014) Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill could be in line for 10 to 15 touches per game, the Cincinnati Enquirer believes. Hill figures to overtake BenJarvus Green-Ellis for the No. 2 running back role at some point between now and the start of the season. 

BJGE listed No. 2 ahead of Jeremy Hill


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) The Bengals listed running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis, not second-round pick Jeremy Hill, as Giovani Bernard's backup. But the team's website notes "vets are going to get the benefit of the doubt" on an initial depth chart.

Hill, who's listed third, has been running with the second team in practice. He's expected to beat out Green-Ellis and share carries with Bernard.

Jeremy Hill still ahead of BenJarvus Green-Ellis


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill continues to work with the second team, ahead of veteran BenJarvus Green-Ellis, reports ESPN.com. While he remains popular among teammates and coaches, Green-Ellis doesn't appear close to supplanting Hill or starter Giovani Bernard, the report said.

Rex Burkhead or Cedric Peerman could threaten Green-Ellis' roster spot.


Report: Jeremy Hill could have 'breakout' year


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill is a candidate to break out this season, reports ESPN.

Hill is expected to be No. 2 on the depth chart behind Giovani Bernard in offensive coordinator Hue Jackson's run-heavy offense. Hill is expected to get short-yardage work ahead of BenJarvus Green-Ellis, who isn't a lock to make the final roster.


Jeremy Hill begins as No. 2 back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2014) Bengals rookie Jeremy Hill opened OTAs as the No. 2 tailback behind Giovani Bernard and ahead of BenJarvus Green-Ellis, reports the team's website.

Bengals sign Jeremy Hill


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) The Bengals signed running back Jeremy Hill, a second-round pick out of LSU, to a four-year contract. Hill will compete with BenJarvus Green-Ellis to share snaps with Giovani Bernard.

Hill ran for 1,401 yards and 16 touchdowns in college last season, averaging 6.9 yards per carry.


Jeremy Hill has uphill climb for Fantasy stature


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/12/2014) The drafting of Jeremy Hill by the Bengals was a head-turner if only because the Bengals already had a great, dynamic back in Giovani Bernard and a physical inside rusher in BenJarvus Green-Ellis. But with Green-Ellis entering a contract year after two seasons underwhelming for the Bengals, it appears to be a move designed to support the run game for years to come.

Hill was a part-time back in college so expect him to stay in that kind of role. He is faster than Green-Ellis, is more versatile than Green-Ellis and will be cheaper on the salary cap than Green-Ellis, so there could be a changing of the guard there. We'll see if that happens -- if it does then Hill will have a crack at a bunch of touchdowns this year and could evolve into a decent reserve Fantasy running back worth a pick before the late rounds. If it doesn't, then Hill will probably be the guy who gives BJGE or Gio a breather once or twice a game and thus won't be worth drafting. For those looking long term, Hill is fine to take with a mid- to late-round pick in dynasty/keeper leagues and a second- or third-round pick in rookie-only drafts.

Bengals draft RB Jeremy Hill


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) With the No. 55 pick in the NFL Draft, the Bengals selected running back Jeremy Hill from LSU.

The Bengals already have Giovani Bernard and BenJarvus Green-Ellis on the roster, but the addition of Hill could mean Green-Ellis is gone.

Hill, who is a big back at 6-foot-1, 233 pounds, had 1,940 rushing yards and 26 rushing touchdowns on 317 carries along with 254 receiving yards on 26 catches for the Tigers. 

If the Bengals release Green-Ellis, Hill would form a formidable duo with Bernard in Cincinnati's backfield.
