After Sunday’s practice, running backs coach Kyle Caskey said of Bernard, "I don't know if it's the workload that's going to get more, it's more the type of plays that we're going to run with him in the game." (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Last season, Bernard had 170 carries and 56 catches. While it’s likely that he gets some sort of a bump in touches in his second year, the Bengals are being mindful of his workload. With more RBs than not in a RBBC, Bernard is still in a good position as the lead back on a team that commits to the run. However, Caskey implies that rookie Jeremy Hill will be heavily involved, capping Bernard’s upside at a very weak RB1 or reliable RB2. When you’re drafting, think 2013 Reggie Bush, not 2013 Jamaal Charles.

Giovani Bernard will approach RB1 numbers this year especially in PPR formats but lost a bit of his appeal when the Bengals drafted the talented Jeremy Hill to replace BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

I love watching Gio run on the field. He is an outstanding RB talent and his PPR upside is amazing. He will be given more workload in 2014 and will see double-digit TDs.

Bernard finished his rookie season as the 16th ranked fantasy back, despite tallying only 170 rushing attempts and 56 receptions. He should have a bigger role in the Bengals offense this year and be a Top 10 running back. Think Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice in his second year with the Ravens.
