Bengals say Jeremy Hill will be 'a huge part down the stretch' - [Full Article]

Entering the bye week, Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson admitted the team is still searching for the answer to Jeremy Hill's early-season struggles.

"He still doesn't play like I want him to play yet, I'll be the first to tell you guys that," Jackson said, via the Cincinnati Enquirer. "I'm not going to run from that, he can't run from it either. I mean, there's another level for him and he'll get there and I believe that with my whole heart.

"Whatever it is, it is, so I'm not going to run from that. He scored a touchdown (against Buffalo in Week 6), he had some good strong runs but I know the player he can be so I'm going to keep pushing him to get there. I mean, we need him. He's going to be a huge part down the stretch run once we get back here (after the bye)."

Fantasy Impact: 

Hill has scored six touchdowns which has allowed him to remain in the top 20 in standard formats despite a paltry 43.2 total yards per game. After the bye, Hill has a tough matchup against the Steelers (#2 in RB aFPA) but then has a pair of good matchups against the Browns and the Texans.
