Bengals | Giovani Bernard limited

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 12:47:50 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like there will be a heavy dose of Bernard again this week as Mixon is still in the concussion protocol. Both players' statuses will need to be monitored, but for now deploy Bernard as an RB2.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard fills in with 130 total yards

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 15:32:21 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed 11 times for 62 yards in Week 14 against the Chicago Bears and he added six receptions for 68 yards on eight targets.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard showed he can still get it done, taking advantage of the absence of rookie Joe Mixon to shine and do his thing even in a loss. If Mixon is forced to miss time, Bernard is an attractive flex fantasy option, particularly in PPR formats.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard fills in and shines on MNF

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 21:03:21 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard recorded 13 carries for 77 yards in the team's Week 13 loss Monday, Dec. 4, versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also caught two of his three targets for 19 yards.

Fantasy Tip: It was by far a season high in rush attempts for Bernard, who received the extra work after teammate Joe Mixon (concussion) went down in the second quarter, and the result was a season-best performance from the five-year veteran. With the Bengals on a short week, it'll be tough for Mixon to suit up in Week 14, making Bernard someone to target everywhere he is available.

Bengals | Four total touches for Gio Bernard

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 13:45:01 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard posted three receptions for 12 yards in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns while adding one catch for 15 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard is clearly in the back seat with Joe Mixon being relied upon as the bellcow in the Queen City. Bernard's barely hanging on as a RB4 or flex option in deeper PPR at this point unless something happens to Mixon.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard has role in passing game

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 14:29:09 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard caught five passes for 38 yards against the Tennessee Titans in Week 10. He also rushed for 10 yards on two carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard will see more touches with Jeremy Hill out but should see most of his work in the passing game. He can be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues against favorable matchups.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard a non-factor in Week 9

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 14:36:39 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed for minus one yard on one carry against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9. He also caught one pass for minus five yards.

Fantasy Tip: Most of the Bengals offense struggled in Week 9, so Bernard has a chance to bounce back next week. He is involved mostly in the passing game but probably can be avoided in most point-per-reception leagues.

Bengals | Jeremy Hill, Gio Bernard are afterthoughts

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 18:08:59 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill rushed four times for 11 yards in Week 8 against the Indianapolis Colts, and RB Giovani Bernard ran twice for just five yards. Neither player had a reception.

Fantasy Tip: Hill and Bernard have been pushed aside by rookie Joe Mixon, who totaled 14 touches with 109 yards, including a 67-yard reception. If you have been holding out hope that Hill or Bernard would eat into Mixon's workload, it isn't happening. Hill and Bernard cannot be trusted right now outside of the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard suffers minor injury

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 12:08:57 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (nose) suffered a nose injury in Week 8 but is considered probable to return.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Benard should be fine and will not miss a lot of playing time. He will continue to part of a committee at running back and could be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

Bengals | Jeremy Hill, Gio Bernard do little

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 18:23:55 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill rushed four times for 16 yards while RB Giovani Bernard rushed twice for two yards with two catches for 30 yards in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Hill and Bernard are well behind Joe Mixon for touches in the Cincinnati backfield, as the rookie had 15 rushes for 51 yards and a touchdown. As such, they're only worth using in the deepest of fantasy leagues right now. Cincinnati is off in Week 6 before traveling to Pittsburgh in Week 7.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard finds end zone

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 13:26:59 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard caught three passes for 67 yards and one touchdown against the Cleveland Browns in Week 4. He also rushed for 12 yards on three carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard is being used mostly in the passing game and has become a reliable target for Andy Dalton. He can be a solid flex option in point-per-reception leagues most weeks because of his role in the passing game.
