Propelled by strong second half of the season in 2019, as 817 of his 1137 yards (72 percent) came in the final eight games ... In 2018, his first year as Bengals' full-time starter, he rushed for 1168 yards and became the first Cincinnati RB to lead the AFC in rushing yards in a season (RB Paul Robinson led the AFL in rushing as a rookie in 1968) ...
