Bengals | Giovani Bernard ruled out

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 10:35:07 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a hip pointer injury.

Fantasy Tip: With Bernard out, Jeremy Hill ($3,700; 7.4% of cap) becomes an excellent investment at FantasyScore. Rex Burkhead could also be involved in the backfield, but that's only if you're willing to scrape the bottom of the barrel.

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 20:54:17 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip, shoulder) has a hip pointer and clavicle which is bothering him and he could miss the Week 9 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to beat writer Richard Skinner. The team has a quick turnaround with a game Thursday, Nov. 6, in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Check back on Bernard's status Friday when the official injury report comes out. If Bernard is sidelined, Jeremy Hill would be a slam-dunk play in FantasyScore at $3,700 (or 7.4 percent of the cap).

Bengals | Giovani Bernard not practicing

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 10:22:04 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see if he is able to practice later in the week and has a chance to play in Week 9. Bernard has a price of $6,900 on FantasyScore and is a solid option if he plays since he produces in the running and passing game. Jeremy Hill would start if Bernard is not able to play and could be a good sleeper option at $3,700 on FantasyScore.

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 12:31:33 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) suffered a right hip injury in Week 8 and is considered questionable to return.

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.
