Jeremy Hill, Giovani Bernard, Andy Dalton, AJ Green's Post-Week 4 Fantasy Advice

Fantasy Football
October 4, 2015

Andy Dalton and the passing game carried the Cincinnati Bengals in the first three weeks of the NFL season. On Sunday, Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard wanted a bigger piece of the pie.

And boy did that pair deliver for fantasy owners, as each reached double-digit points in standard leagues.

There will be concern for Hill owners that the talented back still trailed Bernard in carries, though Hill is firmly entrenched as the team’s short-yardage and goal-line back. This is a true timeshare situation between the players, though the belief coming into the season was that Hill would handle more of the carries and Bernard would be the change-of-pace and third-down back.

Instead, Bernard has continued to receive a healthy dosage of carries. That makes both players solid RB2 options, though each has limited upside given the other’s presence in the offense.

As for Dalton, he’s clearly put himself in the QB1 conversation with four straight performances of 17 or more fantasy points and two straight performances of 300 or more passing yards.

Dalton has potentially tough matchups coming against the Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills before the team’s bye week, so if you own him, you should try to pair him with another reliable option to play matchups. But Dalton is absolutely a player who merits starting consideration every week given his red-hot start to the 2015 season.
