|After taking a second-year leap and coming out of nowhere to score 10 touchdowns in 2013, Marvin Jones ended up missing the entire 2014 season with a broken foot. Lost in his breakout season was the fact he became an integral part of the passing offense, notching 5-plus catches in each of the last four games, including an 8-catch 130-yard game in the playoffs. Sure, the touchdown total was never sustainable, but the fact he became such a trusted redzone threat, and serious part of the game plan mean fantasy owners need to notice in 2015. Fifteen months removed from that breakout season means that Jones will not be a hot fantasy name among your league, and is very likely to be overlooked. The less talented Mohammed Sanu finished last year as a borderline WR3. I really think this offense is going to be a fantasy treasure trove, and Jones could be one of those gems. Donít expect 10 touchdowns again, but Jones has the opportunity, talent, and most importantly health to be a factor as a WR3 with upside.
| Tyler Eifert misses practice Thursday|

|For the second consecutive day on Thursday, tight end Tyler Eifert and cornerback Adam Jones missed practice. Traditionally under Marvin Lewis, any player missing the two most laborious practices of the week won't play Sunday. (Cincinnati.com)|
FFToday's Take: The Bengals tight end suffered a neck stinger in last week's game and looks very shaky to play in Week 13. Tyler Kroft would fill in at TE if Eifert doesn't play but won't be a recommended fantasy option. Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu would likely see an increase in target if Eifert sits.
