Bengals | Limited practice for Giovani Bernard

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 13:37:55 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (ribs) was listed as limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard took a big hit in Week 7. The extent of his injury isn't known, but it's a good sign he was limited early in the week. At a cost of $6,900 (13.8% of cap) at FantasyScore this weekend, it might be tough for him to return you a profit against a Baltimore Ravens run defense that has been stout this year.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard has big stat line

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 17:26:01 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard carried 18 times for 137 yards in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers, including a career-long 89-yard rushing touchdown. He also chipped in with four receptions for 20 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard, Mohamed Sanu and Jermaine Gresham all saw an increase in targets to make up for the absence of A.J. Green. The star receiver is expected to sit again next week, so Bernard could see more responsibilities.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard may return

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 13:03:36 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (shoulder) is expected to return to the team's Week 6 game after missing time with a shoulder injury.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Bernard is only dealing with a minor injury, but owners should look for any updates after the game. Bernard should be in starting lineups if he is healthy enough to play in Week 7.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard suffers injury

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 12:28:35 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (shoulder) left the team's Week 6 game early because of a right shoulder injury and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Bernard's injury is not known at this time, so owners will need to look for updates in the next day or two. Jeremy Hill probably would start if Bernard misses any games and could be a sleeper option to start in fantasy leagues.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard makes big play

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 10:46:53 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed for an 89-yard touchdown in the second quarter of the team's Week 6 game.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard entered the season as one of the top running backs entering drafts and has not disappointed. Bernard should be a weekly start since he helps in the running and passing game.

Bengals | RB tandem might be asked to do more

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 21:46:14 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RBs Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill might be asked to do more in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers if WR A.J. Green (toe) is unable to play. "Never out of weapons," offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said Wednesday, Oct. 8. "We'll put somebody else up in there and let's go."

Bengals | Giovani Bernard-Jeremy Hill tandem impressing

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 11:11:48 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RBs Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill have formed an impressive backfield tandem under offensive coordinator Hue Jackson so far after two games. Bernard is on pace for 328 carries and Hill is on pace for 152. Bernard and Hill combined for 164 yards on 42 carries in the Week 2 win over the Atlanta Falcons. "Both guys are showing they can not only run it, but they also have the ability to catch it and they not only can catch it, but they can make runs after the catch. Their creativity is a key factor in what's been going on. When you have weapons where anytime a guy can get the ball and they can take it to the house, it makes you feel good," former running backs coach Jim Anderson said.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard and Hill could both have big days again in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans defense. Bernard is the lead back and will cost more at FantasyScore ($7,900; 15.8% of cap), which will make Hill ($5,500) more of a bargain most weeks.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard leads explosive duo

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 20:07:16 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard is on pace for 328 carries, while rookie RB Jeremy Hill is ticketed for 152 for a total of 480. That would be the most by two Bengals backs in a single season, shattering the previous record of 405, set in 2000. Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson isn't estimating how many carries each will get on a given day, and said Wednesday, Sept. 17, that is varies from series to series. He calls plays on the sidelines rather than up in the booth so he can sense the ebb and flow of the game. "It's the way things unfold. But Gio is the starting tailback on this football team. So at the end of the day, he's going to get some chances that maybe everybody else doesn't get until he proves he can't or the other guy proves that he's better," Jackson said.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard is the lead dog in a talented backfield, a problem Cincinnati is likely happy to have. Bernard ($7900 or 15.8 percent of salary) will cost you a pretty penny, but he is also averaging 22.5 fantasy points per game as opposed to Hill ($5500 or 11.0 percent of salary), but just 9.8 fantasy points per game. Bernard is the better value, even at a more expensive price.

Bengals | Jeremy Hill sees limited work

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 08:50:21 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill only played 10 offensive snaps in Week 1. RB Giovani Bernard played 57 snaps in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Hill was expected to be used more and could be in the future. However, he's a questionable flex option at this point. Bernard is a mid-to-low RB1 option at the right price on FantasyScore.
