Bengals want to run the ball more
Wednesday, April 9, 2014, 1:26pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Hue Jackson is taking over as offensive coordinator after spending the 2013 season coaching Bengals running backs. In 2010, he was the offensive coordinator in Oakland before getting promoted to head coach in '11. The Bengals signed his quarterback from those two teams, Jason Campbell, last month in part to give Andy Dalton a veteran voice at the position that he hasn't really had throughout his career.

The hallmark of Jackson's Raiders scheme was running, and he has already vowed to do more of that in his new role with the Bengals in an effort of easing the pressure on Dalton.

"You have to have the threat of running the ball and the threat of being a physical unit in order to last for the duration of the season," Jackson said on the radio interview.

Fantasy Impact:

This is good news for Giovani Bernard and not so good news for the fantasy prospects of Dalton, A.J. Green and Marvin Jones. The Bengals were 12th in pass attempts in 2013 and it sounds as if that number (587) is going to drop in 2014.

Redskins hire Jay Gruden as HC
Thursday, January 9, 2014, 10:38am

Adam Schefter, Twitter - [Full Article]

Bengals OC Jay Gruden has agreed to become the next head coach of the Washington Redskins, per league source.

Hue Jackson is expected to be promoted to OC of the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact:

It hasn't ended well for Gruden's predecessors in D.C., but he's going to jump on the opportunity for a head coaching job after three seasons as the Bengals' offensive coordinator. Despite an ugly flameout against the Chargers on Sunday, the Bengals offense has improved under Gruden's guidance. However, some fantasy owners were frustrated by his (lack of) usage of rookie RB Giovanni Bernard and second-year WR Marvin Jones. As for Jackson, he has run productive offenses before, including the Raiders in 2010 and 2011. Oakland was top 10 in yards gained in those two seasons under Jackson's guidance.

Marvin Jones's playing time increased in stretch run

Bengals - [Full Article]

Bengals WR Marvin Jones played on an average of 43 percent of his teams snaps in his first 13 games of the season. Over his final four games, including a Wild Card playoff loss to the Chargers, he played on an average of 68 percent of snaps.

Fantasy Impact:

As his snaps increased, so did his targets. He averaged 4.4 targets through 13 games compared to 8.8 targets in the final four games of the season, including 12 targets against the Chargers in the playoffs. After a season of frustrating usage, it appears that the Cincinnati coaching staff has finally recognized that Jones deserves to play starter's snaps. Entering his third season, he's going to be an intriguing middle round pick in 2014 fantasy drafts.

WRs Mohamed Sanu, Andrew Hawkins active for Bengals
Thursday, October 31, 2013, 7:15pm

Bengals inactives
RB Rex Burkhead,
CB Chris Lewis-Harris
LB Michael Boley
LB Rey Maualuga
DT Devon Still
OL Trevor Robinson
OT Andrew Whitworth

Fantasy Impact:

Mohamed Sanu was very iffy all week, so he may not play a full complement of snaps. Marvin Jones would see extra playing time if Sanu is limited, and is a WR2/WR3 type after finding the endzone for three straight weeks. Andrew Hawkins is also active. He's mainly a slot receiver, so he may take the Bengals out of two-TE sets, limiting the upside of Jermaine Gresham and Tyler Eifert.

Bengals activate Andrew Hawkins

The Bengals announce that they’ve activated WR Andrew Hawkins to the roster from the Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Impact:

It appears that Hawkins may make his debut tonight. He caught 51 passes for 533 yards and four TDs in 14 games last year. Mohamed Sanu is questionable with a shoulder injury and 4-TD Marvin Jones is pushing for more playing time.

No practice Tuesday for Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu.

Fantasy Impact:

The Bengals plays Thursday night against the Dolphins and if Sanu can't play it means Marvin Jones, fresh off a four-TD performance last week, could get more snaps and targets.
