Fantasy start/sit advice, Week 15: Jeremy Hill
The Bengals’ running back couldn’t get much going last week. Can he step up in Week 15?
Cincinnati Bengals‘ running back Jeremy Hill hasn’t been as productive since splitting time with Giovani Bernard. The rookie has been a decent source of total yards, but has only found the end zone once in the last five weeks. Hill should be in for a larger workload compared to last week’s 11 total touches. Also helping his case is the fact he has earned the trust of offensive coordinator Hue Jackson and been named the official starter over Bernard. Hill won’t quite be the feature back, somewhere in the area of last week’s six rushes for Bernard is a reasonable expectation for this week.
Fantasy Impact: Hill won’t have to deal with a stingy match up in the Cleveland Browns. Their mediocre defense allows the 14th-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. Owners should expect to see Hill finish around 20 total touches which leaves him as a RB2 with plenty of upside.
