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 | 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.
