With the season-ending injury to Giovani Bernard a week ago, you would’ve thought the value of star Cincinnati Bengals running back Jeremy Hill would’ve increased. That has not been the case, as he is valued at a mind-boggling $4,300 – cheaper than guys like Charcandrick West, Bilal Powell and James Starks on Draft Kings.
While Hill’s production the past two weeks has dipped, I expect a resurgence this week, even against a Philadelphia defense who typically plays well against the run. We saw James Starks reach the end zone against the Eagles this past Monday night and I expect Hill to find pay dirt this week after being held out of the end-zone the past two weeks – he previously scored the past three games.
You may look at his stat-line from last week and see he was only given 12 carries, but that was in large part due to the fact that he was knocked out of the game – he is considered fully healthy heading into week 13.
Based on volume and production, Hill is a tremendous play this week at his price – you won’t find a starting running back at his talent level at that price very often, although, that’s been the case with him throughout the 2016 season. If you need a cheap play at running back in NFL DFS leagues, he’s your guy.
