  • Tyler Boyd Present For OTAs

    Headshot for Tyler Boyd

    Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd was at the voluntary organized team activities on Tuesday after being absent from the team up to that point through the voluntary offseason program. It's not really notable that Boyd hasn't been at voluntary activities this offseason as he heads into his fourth season working with quarterback Joe Burrow. The 28-year-old receiver finished with 58 receptions, his lowest total since 2017, adding 762 receiving yards and five touchdowns for the second straight season in 16 games (14 starts) in 2022. Boyd is attractive because of the offense he plays in, but he's more of a WR4/5 in fantasy as long as he remains behind stud wideouts Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins in Cincy.

    In February, Tyler Boyd wondered about his status on the 2023 Bengals. Three months later, the wide receiver can rest easier. He remains on Cincinnati’s roster, with the team preparing to run it back — perhaps for the final time — with its elite wideout trio. Boyd is heading into the final season of his […]

  • Joe Burrow 2023 Player Outlook: Record Contract Extension Coming?

    Headshot for Joe Burrow

    2023 is the last year that the Cincinnati Bengals will have quarterback Joe Burrow on the cheap via his rookie deal. While it does seem inevitable a deal will get done between the two sides, how big will it be? Per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Burrow should agree to a percentage of the salary each year to compensate for it going up. Nonetheless, the contract extension talks shouldn't impact Burrow's fantasy outlook for 2023. Even without a ton of rushing upside, Burrow should still be viewed as a Top 5-7 quarterback for fantasy in 2023. The Bengals ran 11 personnel at an 82% rate in 2022, good for the second-highest in the NFL. With Joe Mixon, Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, and some improvements on the offensive line, it's hard not to see the Bengals' offense as a potent foe for 2023. In the two seasons combined Burrow has averaged 4500+ passing yards and 34+ TD passes per year.

  • Jeremy Hill Announces Retirement

    Former Cincinnati Bengals running back Jeremy Hill announced his retirement from professional football this week. Hill was originally a second-round pick (55th overall) by the Bengals in 2014 out of Louisiana State University, and he spent the first four years of his NFL career in Cincinnati before playing for the New England Patriots in his final season in 2018. He had 704 carries for 2,873 rushing yards and 29 touchdowns in his time with the Bengals. Unfortunately, he was most famous for his late-game lost fumble in the 2015 wild-card playoff loss to the division-rival Pittsburgh Steelers. In his final year with the Pats, Hill only saw four carries for 25 yards in one game played. The 30-year-old finishes his NFL career with 708 carries for 2,898 yards and 29 TDs, adding 68 receptions for 490 yards and another score in 55 games played (43 starts).

  • Joe Burrow "Knows What He Wants"

    According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow "knows what he wants" regarding his anticipated contract extension. Rapoport added that things may not be finalized until after Los Angeles Chargers signal-caller Justin Herbert secures his extension. Burrow is widely considered one of the best at the position, so he'll command a hefty payday. The former LSU Tiger is certainly worth every penny, as he finished last season by throwing for 4,475 passing yards, 35 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions. He also found the end zone five more times on the run. With Lamar Jackson and Jalen Hurts each getting lucrative deals north of $50 million per season, Burrow could surpass those numbers. But regardless of when he signs a new contract, he's expected to finish the 2023-24 campaign as a top fantasy quarterback.

  • Joe Burrow, Bengals Continue To Talk Contract Extension

    Headshot for Joe Burrow

    Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow confirmed on Tuesday that he and the team continue to work on a long-term contract extension after the Bengals unsurprisingly picked up his fifth-year option. "I'm involved. That's in the works," Burrow said. "That's not really something that I like to play out in the media. That's something just the way, I think, they want to do business, I want to do business, we prefer to keep that between us." It sounds as though the 26-year-old may not break the bank in order to leave some money on the table for his teammates that also need extensions, but he's still going to be paid very handsomely when all is said and done. Burrow has become a high-end NFL QB in the last two years, reaching the Super Bowl and then taking his team to the AFC Championship this past January.

  • Calvin Tyler Jr. Among Bengals Undrafted Free-Agent Signings

    The Cincinnati Bengals brought in a large group of undrafted free agents that include Utah State running back Calvin Tyler Jr., Tulane safety Larry Brooks, Georgia Tech wide receiver Malachi Carter, Duke linebacker Shaka Heyward, Miami (Ohio) wide receiver Mac Hippenhammer, Auburn wide receiver Shed Jackson, Washington offensive guard Jaxson Kirkland, Tennessee-Chattanooga defensive tackle Devonnsha Maxwell, Alabama linebacker Jaylen Moody, Memphis linebacker Tyler Murray, Arizona State defensive tackle Tautala Pesefea, East Tennessee State running back Jacob Saylors and Houston tight end Christian Trahan. Tyler is a productive runner with toughness, vision and patience. He has solid hands, but he'll need to show value in pass protection to make the roster.
