All 32 teams will open training camps this week. The start of the 2014 NFL season is now just over a month away. Now is also the time many will begin running their fantasy football drafts.

The Cincinnati Bengals have several players of relevance in this department. Tyler Eifert, Marvin Jones, Jeremy Hill, Andy Dalton, Giovani Bernard and A.J. Green figure to be the Bengals' top performers this year.

CBS Sports' Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard have a list of the top 200 fantasy players updated regularly. Their pre-training camp rankings are a bit surprising regarding Cincinnati's players.

Eisenberg has Eifert at No.196, Dalton at No.153, Jones at No.114 and Hill at No.97. Richard has Dalton at No.149, Hill at No.125 and Jones at No.99.

The most surprising ranking came where they placed Green and Bernard, as both of them had Bernard ahead of Green. Eisenberg ranked Green 20th and Bernard 11th. Richard ranked Green 21st and Bernard 13th.

It seems a bit early to rank Bernard ahead of Green until it's clear he's the Bengals' primary back. As of now, it looks like he's in for a similar split with Hill as he was last year with BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

Here's the rest of CBS's top 30 rankings.
