Bengals | Giovani Bernard placed on IR

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 12:09:19 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 22. Bernard suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: No surprise here. This will be Jeremy Hill's backfield now, but Rex Burkhead should see a larger role, particularly in the passing game. Even with Hill being featured now, though, he draws a really tough test in the Baltimore Ravens this week. Expecting a breakout performance as the featured back right away would be naïve.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard has torn ACL

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 20:58:12 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the Week 11 game against the Buffalo Bills, a source said Sunday, Nov. 20.

Fantasy Tip: With Bernard done for the season it will be Jeremy Hill handling the majority of the backfield touches down the stretch. Rex Burkhead might benefit from a few extra touches, while Tyler Eifert could picked up a few more targets in the pass game as a result.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard used in run, pass game

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 15:01:12 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed for 21 yards on seven carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 11. He also caught five passes for 40 yards in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard has received a decent amount of touches over the past few weeks but has not posted great numbers. He will continue to be involved in the running and passing game and can be a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Bengals | Gio Bernard totals 10 touches

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 20:52:17 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed seven times for 17 yards in the Week 10 game against the New York Giants Monday, Nov. 14, and he added three receptions for 19 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: It was a bit of a disappointment from a fantasy perspective, especially for PPR owners, as his catch total and yardage was well under his average. In fact, over the past three games he has just five grabs for 40 yards while the past two games he there has been more emphasis on the run. Tonight, he did neither very well. He remains a solid RB2 in most PPR leagues and he looks to rebound in Week 11 against Buffalo.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard involved in run, pass game

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 13:09:07 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed for 52 yards and one touchdown on 11 carries against the Washington Redskins in Week 8. He also caught one pass for 14 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard has been a versatile running back for the Bengals this season and will continue to be involved in the running and passing game moving forward. He should be a fine flex option against most opponents.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard finds end zone

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 14:11:15 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed for 80 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries against the Cleveland Browns in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard has received at least 10 carries in three of the last four games but had not rushed for more than 50 yards in any game before Week 7. Bernard has more value in point-per-reception leagues because he has a solid role in the passing game. He should be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 22:15:50 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed 15 times for a team-high 49 yards in the Week 6 game against the New England Patriots and he added four receptions for 45 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard is a solid fantasy option in leagues which reward points per receptions (PPR), but he is more of a flex fantasy option in standard formats. The Bengals host the Browns in Week 7.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard posts nine grabs, TD

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 22:16:03 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard ran five times just 17 yards in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he more than made up for the shortcomings in the rush game with nine receptions for a game-high 100 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard is a fabulous fantasy option in most formats, especially in leagues which reward points per reception (PPR). He faces another difficult rush defense in Week 3 against the Broncos, but he remains a solid RB2 in PPR formats.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard shows versatility

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 21:02:02 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard had three carries for 27 yards and two catches for 25 yards and a touchdown in a 26-21 preseason loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Sharing the backfield with Jeremy Hill caps Bernard's upside, but his ability as a pass-catcher makes Bernard a viable RB3 in PPR formats.
