Friday, December 18, 2015, 6:32pm

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (concussion, out) has been ruled out for Week 15. Eifert’s absence means that A.J. Green and Marvin Jones are a bit more attractive, though the loss of Andy Dalton doesn’t help.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 14. He’s the #2 TE in the league in PPG, so he’s pretty much a must-start if he’s healthy. His return is a downgrade for A.J. Green and Marvin Jones, but Andy Dalton gets a small bump given Eifert’s effectiveness in the red zone.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Eifert says he is “on track to play Sunday” and was a “full go” on Thursday. He’s the #2 TE in the league in PPG, so he’s pretty much a must-start if he’s healthy. His return is a downgrade for A.J. Green and Marvin Jones, but Andy Dalton gets a small bump given Eifert’s effectiveness in the red zone.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (neck, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 13. Eifert is still recovering from a Week 12 stinger. Owners should make other plans. A.J. Green and Marvin Jones may see more looks in the red zone with Eifert sidelined.

Bengals WR Marvin Jones (foot, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 6. Jones appears to be good to go against the Bills. Buffalo has been pretty stingy against the run, so the Bengals may be forced to air it out.

Bengals WR Marvin Jones (foot) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Jones had a foot injury that caused him to miss most of last season. We’ll keep an eye on this, but it’s probably not too serious if he’s already participating in practice in some fashion.

Andy Dalton better with Marvin Jones opposite A.J. Green

Re-introduce yourself to the Bengals’ latest X-Factor because they’ve got a lot of them on offense.

Since 2013, here are Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton’s numbers when wide receiver Marvin Jones is paired opposite Pro Bowler A.J Green:
A 62.6 completion percentage at 7.6 yards per attempts for 41 TDs and 21 picks and a passer rating of 93.2. That’s compared to career numbers of 61.8 percent, 7.1 yards per attempts and an 86.7 rating.

And in games they combine for a TD since 2013, like they did in Sunday’s 28-24 victory in Baltimore, the Bengals are 8-1.

Fantasy Impact:

Jones is fast, tough, has great hands and defenses have to treat him almost as delicately as Green. On Sunday’s first drive he made a nice leaping catch on third-and-six when Dalton let him come back for it on the left sideline for a 32-yard play. And his one-handed catch on the last drive down the right sideline when he fried cornerback Kyle Arrington for 31 yards is now a part of Bengals lore.

Bengals WR Marvin Jones working his way back into the WR2 role

Bengals beat writer Paul Dehner: For second straight 11-on-11 Marvin Jones running with the first team on outside. Mohamed Sanu enters in slot at three-wide. First time this year.

Fantasy Impact:

Jones was one of our favorite sleepers last summer, but his season was derailed by an ankle injury. His 51 catches for 712 yards and 10 touchdowns resulted in the 3rd-highest FP/T in 2013. He’s poised to surprise if he can prove he’s fully healthy and win the starting job opposite A.J. Green. Mohamed Sanu played pretty well last season but he struggled with drops, and Jones was ahead of Sanu when disaster struck. Both players are free agents after the season, so this is one of the more interesting camp battles to monitor this summer. One thing to note -- Sanu only saw 5.2 targets in the 12 games in which Green played, so Cincinnati’s WR2 it wasn’t a high-volume role in OC Hue Jackson’s run-oriented offense, but Jackson said that he is planning to open things up a bit in 2015.

Marvin Jones getting back to form

ESPN - [Full Article]

Bengals WR Marvin Jones is bound to have more impressive stat lines this season than the one he had in Friday night's preseason opener.

One catch, 17 yards.

But the numbers aren't what Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson has been paying attention to this training camp with respect to his young receiver who is coming back from a season-long stint out of the rotation because of injuries.

Jackson has been more concerned with the way Jones has been running routes. Jackson is watching how Jones comes out of his breaks, seeing where he puts his hands as passes come his way, and he looks for how aggressively the receiver turns up field after securing a reception.

From what Jackson is seeing, the pre-injury Jones is nearly back.

"He's starting to look like Marvin Jones again," Jackson said. "The more he works at it every day."

Fantasy Impact:

Jones was thrown to twice in last Friday's 23-10 win against the Giants. He caught the one pass and turned upfield for additional yards before being tackled for a first down. He also nearly had a chance to catch a touchdown pass. As Jones went long on one "go" route, backup quarterback Josh Johnson threw under pressure. As a result, he left the throw a little short, and the ball ended up deflecting off the back of the cornerback who was covering Jones. Jones was one of our sneaky picks last year before the injury derailed his season. Mohamad Sanu emerged a bit last year but we still rank Jones as the team's WR2, coming in at 61st. He's worth a later-round flier and his ADP indicates that's where owners are taking him.
