Jeremy Hill still in the RB mix The forgotten man in the Bengals backfield will still have a role By: Mike Krueger | Jul 7 2017, 10:00 am
I don’t see Jeremy Hill going anywhere in this the last year of his deal after head coach Marvin Lewis’ fiery defense of him during the offseason. Hill is going to be far from invisible, at least at the start of things with Giovani Bernard coming off of ACL surgery and second-rounder Joe Mixon learning the ropes. Hill figures to always be a presence inside the 5. (Bengals.com)
FFToday's Take:Geoff Hobson from Bengals.com was answering a reader's question in his opinion above. Hobson went on to note that Mixon may start the season as the third-down back given Gio's injury with a lot of split time between Hill and Mixon until one emerges. With Mixon being the superior talent he's the favorite to lead the Bengals' RBs in fantasy points when it's all said and done.
