Bengals RB Jeremy Hill may see 10 to 15 carries per game

Jeremy Hill may see 10 to 15 carries per game, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner. Dehner's comments come after Hill has surpassed RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis @TheLawFirmBJGE in camp, according to many observers. With new offensive coordinator Hue Jackson calling the plays, many expect the Bengals to show a renewed focus on the running game.

Fantasy Analysis:

That focus on the running game could help Hill and Giovani Bernard @G_Bernard25 coexist as usable fantasy options within the same offense. Assuming Dehner is correct, and Hill gets 10 to 15 carries per game, he'd get about the same aggregate workload that Bernard did as a rookie. And Bernard would presumably take over Green-Ellis' 220 carries from 2013, plus 60 or 70 catches. A work split like that could result in both Hill and Bernard being viable fantasy plays in 2014. Hill looks like a decent value pick as the 43rd RB selected in fantasy drafts.
