Fantasy football sit/start advice, Week 10: Jeremy Hill

Jeremy Hill will likely carry the load against the Cleveland Browns. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard is unlikely to play on Thursday against the Cleveland Browns. Even if he does play, he's unlikely to shoulder a full workload, which means Jeremy Hill will probably get plenty of carries. Bernard missed Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars due to his hip injury, and Hill flourished.

Against the Jaguars, a week after picking up just 25 yards in limited action against the Baltimore Ravens, Hill carried the ball 24 times for 154 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He has 74 carries for 349 yards and five touchdowns on the season and a strong per-carry average of 4.7 yards.

Fantasy Impact: The Browns aren't great against the run, as they allow 139.6 rushing yards per game on average. That's 30th in the league, and Hill has been running strong lately. He's a must-start in the event that Bernard isn't 100 percent healthy, and that's certainly the case for Thursday's prime time matchup. Hill should be considered a high-end running back this week.
