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.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard ready to play

Fri, 29 Sep 2017 17:39:02 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (thigh) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard likely will receive limited snaps with Joe Mixon taking over as the team's main running back. He should still be involved in the passing game and could be a flex option in some point-per-reception leagues.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard remains limited

Thu, 28 Sep 2017 13:16:35 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (thigh) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard should have a decent chance to play in Week 4, but owners will need to check the inactive list. Bernard probably will be losing touches to Joe Mixon moving forward but will still have a role in the passing game. He can be a flex option for owners in point-per-reception leagues.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard limited in practice

Wed, 27 Sep 2017 13:14:56 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (thigh) was listed as a limited participant for practice Wednesday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Bernard is able to play in Week 4 he isn't a terribly attractive play due to the emergence of Joe Mixon. The Bengals have a three-headed monster in the backfield and Bernard's touches were limited to just five total in Week 3. He saw eight touches in Week 1, and seven total touches in Week 2. He is only worth using on a regular basis in deeper PPR formats as long as Mixon and Hill are also healthy.
