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.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard busy in loss

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 leads the way

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 21:55:49 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed nine times for 50 yards in the Week 5 game against the Dallas Cowboys and he added six receptions for 46 yards on six targets.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard remains a decent low-end RB2 in most standard fantasy leagues and he is a must-start option in leagues which reward points per reception (PPR).

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.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard in more two-back sets

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 07:19:24 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard could be used in more two-back sets with RB Jeremy Hill to make up for the loss of TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) early in the season.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard hasn't had the kind of buzz he had in his first couple of years in the league. Truth is, though, that he rushed for a career-high 730 yards and 4.7 yards per carry. He also caught 49 balls for 472 yards. The problem is that he only had two total touchdowns. Bernard is a solid RB3 in fantasy and has upside in PPR leagues. Hill is a good RB2 in most formats.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard extended

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 12:28:55 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard is finalizing a three-year extension worth $15.5 million Wednesday, June 8, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard will continue to play the lighting opposite Jeremy Hill's thunder. Gio has more value in PPR leagues and should be drafted as an RB2 in such formats.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard out for game

Sat, 09 Jan 2016 20:01:50 -0800

Updating a previous story, Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (concussion) is in concussion protocol and has been ruled out for the remainder of the AFC wild-card game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: It will be Jeremy Hill handling a bulk of the carries from here on out.

Sat, 09 Jan 2016 19:47:31 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (head) was helped off the field and went to the locker room after being hit by Pittsburgh Steelers LB Ryan Shazier in their AFC wild-card game Saturday, Jan. 9.

Fantasy Tip: If Bernard can't return, Jeremy Hill will handle a bulk of the snaps at running back.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard huge in receiving game

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 22:22:17 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard ran six times for 18 yards in the Week 11 game against the Arizona Cardinals, but he was really a factor in the receiving game. He had eight receptions for a team-high 128 yards and he was targeted 10 times.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard had a 41-yard reception down to the 1-yard line, nearly scoring after appearing to roll on top of a defender before he was down. Despite the lack of touchdowns, he has been the better fantasy option over the past few weeks, although Jeremy Hill was able to post two rushing scores Sunday night.

Mon, 16 Nov 2015 21:37:11 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard carried eight times for 36 yards in the Week 10 game against the Houston Texans Monday, Nov. 16. He also added five receptions for 43 yards while being targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard had 13 touches to 10 for Jeremy Hill, who just cannot seem to get it going. At this point the versatile Bernard appears to be the better FantasyScore option.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard leads ground game

Thu, 05 Nov 2015 20:59:34 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard had 13 carries for a team-high 72 yards and one catch for 14 yards in a 31-10 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard ($6,700, 13.6% of cap) gained 20 more yards on the ground than teammate Jeremy Hill ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) on two fewer carries. However, both backs continue to see steady work, making both risky plays at FantasyScore from one game to the next.

Bengals | Quiet game for Giovani Bernard

Sun, 01 Nov 2015 17:58:55 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard had one carry for 12 yards and two catches for 22 yards in a 16-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) took a backseat to Jeremy Hill ($5,900, 11.8% of cap), who ran 15 times for 60 yards. Cincinnati's backfield remain tough to predict from one week to the next, making both backs risky plays at FantasyScore.

Bengals | Jeremy Hill still the starter

Tue, 13 Oct 2015 07:23:56 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill is still the starting running back, according to offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. "Jeremy hasn't had the success that he had a year ago, and I think that's what everybody's looking for," Jackson said of his back who averaged 5.1 yards per carry last year. "But Jeremy's playing and playing well. Jeremy's still our starting tailback. Everybody has seen over the last couple games that (Giovani Bernard) has got more carries, more opportunities than Jeremy. Well, eventually that's going to flip.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) and Bernard ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) have a rough matchup against the Buffalo Bills this week. Bernard might have more upside due to his receiving ability, but the tandem doesn't have a lot of upside in the matchup on FantasyScore.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard leads the backfield

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 17:04:29 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard had a team-high 15 carries for 80 yards and five catches for 21 yards in a 27-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) logged seven more carries than Jeremy Hill ($6,800, 13.6% of cap), and he has outperformed Hill for much of the season. However, the backfield situation in Cincinnati can change on a weekly basis, making both players risky options at FantasyScore.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard heads backfield

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 18:34:25 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard had a team-high 13 carries for 62 yards and a touchdown in a 36-21 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has been much more efficient than Jeremy Hill ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) this season, and although he is receiving more touches, Hill's role as the goal-line back gives him more upside at FantasyScore.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard dominates RB snaps

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 07:38:47 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard's 51 snaps dominated the backfield in Week 3 against the Baltimore Ravens. Bengals RB Jeremy Hill saw only 26 snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard's role can be attributed to Hill's Week 2 fumbling problems and a design to attack the Ravens on the perimeter. This backfield could be shuffled on a week-to-week matchup basis.

Bengals | Fumbling an issue for Jeremy Hill

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 16:29:50 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill has seven fumbles in 18 career NFL games. The fact that Hill was benched in favor of RB Giovani Bernard, who ran 20 times for 123 yards in Week 2 against the San Diego Chargers, further hammered home the point for Hill. "We can't have the back fumbling the football," head coach Marvin Lewis said. "Jeremy's a talented young player and we've got to keep the football. That wasn't part of his deal last year and we can't let it creep in." Hill had five fumbles as a rookie in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: If Hill's ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) fumbling issues continue, his owners may need to start looking for alternatives. He'll likely be a contrarian play on FantasyScore in Week 3 against the Baltimore Ravens after Bernard ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) outperformed him in Week 2.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard makes most of chance

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 16:08:44 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard had 20 carries for 123 yards and three catches for 16 yards in a 24-19 win over the San Diego Chargers in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) ran wild after Jeremy Hill ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) was benched for fumbling twice. It remains to be seen if Hill will remain in the doghouse going forward, but keep close tabs on the situation before using either back at FantasyScore in Week 3.

Bengals | Jeremy Hill benched in Week 2

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 13:32:02 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill was benched during the third quarter after losing two fumbles in Week 2's game against the San Diego Chargers. He finished the game with 39 yards on 10 carries and was replaced by RB Giovani Bernard.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) made the most of his opportunity, gaining 123 rushing yards on 20 carries and catching three passes for 16 more yards versus San Diego. It remains to be seen if Hill ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) will regain his starting job for next week's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Bengals | Cincinnati has lethal RB duo

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 14:59:49 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RBs Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard both finished among the top-16 running backs in point-per-reception leagues last season.

Fantasy Tip: Hill will be the Bengals' starter, but Bernard should see his fair share of playing time, particularly on passing downs. Don't expect them both to finish in the top 16 again, but Hill and Bernard should be considered a RB1 and RB2, respectively, in PPR leagues.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard still a solid option

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 16:17:10 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard finished as the 16th best running back in point-per-reception leagues last year, despite RB Jeremy Hill starting eight games.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard and Hill have already proven they can coexist. Hill should do most of the running out of the backfield while Bernard contributes mainly in the passing game. Even with Hill succeeding last year, Bernard still gained more than 1,000 total yards and seven total touchdowns. Consider him a RB2 in PPR leagues again this year.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard to return punts?

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 22:51:48 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard might see an expanded role as a punt returner this season. He returned two punts for touchdowns in college, and was working as a returning the preseason in his rookie season before his running back role expanded. If he sees fewer snaps playing alongside RB Jeremy Hill it might open up an opportunity for Bernard on special teams.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard is worth watching in the preseason, as he could be dangerous in the return game. If so, he would be a strong fantasy option in formats which reward individual return yardage. As it stands, he'll be a good option in leagues which reward points per reception (PPR), even if he sees decreased snaps this season.

Bengals | Jeremy Hill expects to share snaps

Fri, 29 May 2015 14:28:19 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill said he expects to share carries with RB Giovani Bernard this upcoming season. "Obviously there's going to be a balanced attack," Hill said. "I don't think he's got to wear either one of us out, so that way we can make it through all 16 games for a playoff push."

Fantasy Tip: Hill led the team in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns in 2014 and probably will be more valuable in fantasy leagues this season. Giovani Bernard will see solid playing time and could be more of a factor in the passing game, which increases his value in point-per-reception leagues. Hill and Bernard should be selected in drafts in 2015.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard with upside Sunday

Sun, 04 Jan 2015 08:24:32 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard could be relied upon heavily in the passing game Sunday, Jan. 4, in the wild-card playoff game with WR A.J. Green (concussion) and TE Jermaine Gresham (back) out.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard ($5,800; 11.6% of your cap) is a good receiver out of the backfield, and the team could split him out wide or in the slot in some formations. He's at a good price on FantasyScore, considering he could have WR2 targets and receive a handful of rushes.

Bengals | Gio Bernard sees 13 touches

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 21:21:34 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard carried eight times for 36 yards in the Week 16 game against the Denver Broncos Monday, Dec. 22, while adding five receptions for 45 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard's touchdown was his first since Oct. 26 against the Baltimore Ravens. He is clearly behind Jeremy Hill on the depth chart, but he can still be effective. FantasyScore owners should consider Bernard as a low-end RB2 or flex play heading into Week 17.

Bengals | Jeremy Hill the better second-half back

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 18:03:34 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill is averaging 4.8 yards per carry in the second half of games this year, and RB Giovani Bernard is averaging 2.8 yards per carry in the second half of games.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is set to start for the Bengals in Week 15, and his tendency to improve in the second half of games makes him an intriguing play at FantasyScore in what will likely be an expanded role.

Bengals | Jeremy Hill to start in Week 15

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 11:44:33 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill will be the starting running back over RB Giovani Bernard for the team's Week 15 game against the Cleveland Browns. The Bengals have used a tandem approach with Hill and Bernard otherwise, with the two backs often alternating series. Bernard's snap counts have been near equal to Hill's in the last three weeks after returning from injury. Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson favors a one-back system. "I'm used to having one guy kind of dominate some carries because, in order for backs to be really good, they've got to get lathered up to play," Jackson said. "You've got to get a feel for the game."

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($5,300) is the team leader in rushing this year with Bernard missing some time to injury earlier this year. Hill now becomes a much safer play at FantasyScore for his price against the Cleveland Browns, while you should look to avoid Bernard ($5,900) at a slightly higher price.

Bengals | Cincy RBs likely 50-50 again

Sun, 07 Dec 2014 09:20:23 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RBs Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill are likely to have a 50-50 split again in Week 14 Sunday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard's ($6,900; 13.8% of your cap) salary is still quite prohibitive on FantasyScore. Hill ($5,300; 10.6%) is at a better price point, but we'd probably look elsewhere.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard to start

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 08:30:41 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (clavicle, hip) will be the starting running back for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard missed several weeks because of injury but will be able to play in Week 12. His role for the game is uncertain, but there is a chance that he could be limited during the game. Bernard costs $6,800 on FantasyScore, which may be too expensive for some owners.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip, clavicle) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is probable for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard is fully healthy but will lose some carries to Jeremy Hill. Bernard will cost $6,800 in FantasyScore this week, which may be a bit much for his first week back. There may be safer options out there for that price.

Bengals | Jeremy Hill forecasted for more

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 07:00:40 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill will be the leader in a 65-35 split of the carries with RB Giovani Bernard in Week 12, in the opinion of beat writer Paul Dehner Jr.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($5,800; 11.6% of your cap) is a solid play this week on FantasyScore as a flex option. Bernard ($6,800; 13.6%) should be avoided until he becomes a bigger part of the offense.

Bengals | Trying to keep Giovani Bernard healthy

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 22:04:08 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (clavicle, hip) will be eased back into the lineup, offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said Wednesday, Nov. 19. "I think we've got to work him back into our process and how we do things. What will determined that is just how fast and how we think he is ready to go," Jackson said.

Fantasy Tip: Jeremy Hill has done a great job in Bernard's absence, making it easier for the team to keep the training wheels on Bernard as long as necessary. For FantasyScore purposes, avoid Bernard at $6,800 (or 13.6 percent of the cap) until he is 100 percent and playing without restrictions.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard may practice

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 13:44:03 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (hip) may be able to participate in practice this week, but head coach Marvin Lewis said the team will wait to see if he is able to return to the field.

Fantasy Tip: Jeremy Hill has been playing well as the starting running back, but Bernard may be able to regain the starting job if he is able to play. Bernard will have to participate in practice if he wants a chance to play in Week 12, so owners may want to hold him out of their lineups until his status becomes clearer.

Fantasy Tip: Jeremy Hill will get the majority of the work for the Bengals, and has a nice FantasyScore price of $5,400 (10.8% of cap). Hill should have a nice return on that investment.

Fantasy Tip: This doesn't look good for Bernard's chances to play in Week 11. Jeremy Hill ($5,400 salary, 10.8% of cap in FantasyScore) is looking like a more attractive RB2 daily fantasy option, with RB1 upside, against the New Orleans Saints. They've been gashed by running backs for much of the year.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard sitting out

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 10:14:33 -0800
