Bengals | To limit Giovani Bernard's load
Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden wants to limit RB Giovani Bernard's workload in the second half of the season in order to keep him fresh and healthy. In the last four games, RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis has 60 touches to 52 for Bernard. "To say we're going to give the ball to Gio 25 times each week is kind of unrealistic," Gruden said. "He needs spelling. He needs a bigger back in there like BenJarvus to take 10, 12, 15 carries a game."
Fantasy Tip: Expect the status quo to continue in Cincy as far as touches are split between these two backs. Bernard's currrent workload is enough to make him fantasy-relevant on a weekly basis, but don't expect him to become the bell-cow running back suddenly over the Law Firm.
