Bengals | Jeremy Hill, Gio Bernard do little

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 18:23:55 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill rushed four times for 16 yards while RB Giovani Bernard rushed twice for two yards with two catches for 30 yards in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Hill and Bernard are well behind Joe Mixon for touches in the Cincinnati backfield, as the rookie had 15 rushes for 51 yards and a touchdown. As such, they're only worth using in the deepest of fantasy leagues right now. Cincinnati is off in Week 6 before traveling to Pittsburgh in Week 7.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard finds end zone

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 13:26:59 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard caught three passes for 67 yards and one touchdown against the Cleveland Browns in Week 4. He also rushed for 12 yards on three carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard is being used mostly in the passing game and has become a reliable target for Andy Dalton. He can be a solid flex option in point-per-reception leagues most weeks because of his role in the passing game.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard ready to play

Fri, 29 Sep 2017 17:39:02 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (thigh) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard likely will receive limited snaps with Joe Mixon taking over as the team's main running back. He should still be involved in the passing game and could be a flex option in some point-per-reception leagues.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard remains limited

Thu, 28 Sep 2017 13:16:35 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (thigh) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard should have a decent chance to play in Week 4, but owners will need to check the inactive list. Bernard probably will be losing touches to Joe Mixon moving forward but will still have a role in the passing game. He can be a flex option for owners in point-per-reception leagues.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard limited in practice

Wed, 27 Sep 2017 13:14:56 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (thigh) was listed as a limited participant for practice Wednesday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Bernard is able to play in Week 4 he isn't a terribly attractive play due to the emergence of Joe Mixon. The Bengals have a three-headed monster in the backfield and Bernard's touches were limited to just five total in Week 3. He saw eight touches in Week 1, and seven total touches in Week 2. He is only worth using on a regular basis in deeper PPR formats as long as Mixon and Hill are also healthy.

Bengals | Joe Mixon receives majority of snaps

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 15:30:41 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon received 34 offensive snaps in the team's Week 3 game. RB Jeremy Hill received 14 snaps, while RB Giovani Bernard received 13 snaps.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Mixon will be the No. 1 running back for the Bengals moving forward, which makes him a valuable option for fantasy owners. He can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option most weeks. Hill can be considered a flex option against certain opponents in standard leagues, while Bernard can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard sputters Thursday night

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 21:42:26 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard managed just 10 yards on five carries Thursday, Sept. 14, against the Houston Texans. Bernard was targeted four times in the passing game, which led to two catches for 16 yards.

Fantasy Tip: On some level it makes sense to ease Bernard, who tore his ACL last November, back into action, but it's unclear that's what's happening as all three of Cincinnati's RBs are getting just a handful of touches each game. Bernard offers a unique skill set and should eventually hold value in PPR leagues, however, so don't cut bait just yet.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard leads three-headed monster

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 18:19:06 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed seven times for 40 yards in Week 1 against Baltimore and he added one catch for 39 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard, Jeremy Hill and Joe Mixon nearly split the carries evenly, but Bernard had the most production with 79 total yards. As such, Bernard looks like the more attractive of the trio from a fantasy perspective heading into Week 2 against the Texans on Thursday night.
