Bengals | Joe Mixon will be bell cow back

Wed, 28 Feb 2018 11:13:55 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon will be the featured running back with RB Giovani Bernard mixed in, according to director of player personnel Duke Tobin.

Fantasy Tip: This was to be expected, especially with the departure of Jeremy Hill. The Bengals need to better fortify their offensive line to give Mixon better opportunities for success, but Mixon has an RB2 floor if he can keep good health.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard ready to play

Fri, 29 Dec 2017 12:48:58 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard is ready to play and could receive another start if Joe Mixon is not ready to play in Week 17. He will be facing a tough Baltimore Ravens defense this week but could be at least a flex option in leagues if he starts.

Bengals | Joe Mixon, Giovani Bernard both limited

Thu, 28 Dec 2017 13:46:25 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RBs Joe Mixon (ankle) and Giovani Bernard (ankle) were limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 28.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen how Cincinnati will use their running backs, but it would make sense for Bernard to see a bigger load again so as not to risk aggravation of Mixon's concussion. Bernard deserves more snaps, too, after his breakout performance in Week 16. Both are flex options right now.

Bengals | Limited practice for Giovani Bernard

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 14:00:22 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard went off last week with Joe Mixon limited. Mixon didn't practice today, so he could be on his way to another limited outing or he may not even play. Either way, Bernard is at worst a great PPR flex option.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard shines as replacement

Sun, 24 Dec 2017 16:10:53 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed 23 times for 116 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions and he added seven receptions for 52 yards on seven targets.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard was thrust into a lead role once Joe Mixon (ankle) went down with an early injury and he really stepped up. He is a talented player who could do this on a regular basis somewhere else in the near future.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard suffers minor injury

Sun, 24 Dec 2017 11:57:33 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (ankle) suffered a right ankle injury in Week 16 but is considered probable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard is receiving most of the work at running back since Joe Mixon was sidelined and should return to the game. He can be considered a flex option next week if he receives the start.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard finds end zone

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 13:21:52 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed for 30 yards and one touchdown on 14 carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 15. He also caught three passes for 13 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard received most of the touches at running back and had some success against the Vikings. He will lose the starting job when Joe Mixon returns to the lineup and can be avoided in most leagues at that point.

Bengals | Career numbers for Giovani Bernard

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 20:28:37 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard is averaging a career-high 4.5 yards per carry and a career-high 11.3 yards per reception this season.

Fantasy Tip: A matchup with a tough Minnesota Vikings defense isn't ideal, but if Joe Mixon doesn't clear concussion protocol, Bernard will be worthy of a starting spot in Week 15.
