Gio is very much on the rise. There is tons to love about his game and role for 2014.
No Vick Ballard kills any complication. If T-Rich blows Bradshaw is going to be a draft day steal.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
He'll be worth a first-round pick even if touch volume increases only slightly.
An injury risk, but he could have serious value if T-Rich's woes continue.
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
Bernard had 3 receiving TDs and 5 rushing TDs in 2013, resulting in over 1,200 all purpose yards. Better in PPR formats, Bernard could be good for 4-5 receptions per game this season. I see Bernard with at least 300 touches this season. He is a low RB1.
On my 2014 all sleeper team.
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
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.
Ahmad Bradshaw figures to have minimal fantasy value to open the season but if T-Rich runs as poorly as he has the past two seasons Bradshaw may find himself as the lead back of a committee by mid-season.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
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.
 
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Bernard is one of my favorite players this season. He gets Hue Jackson to help make the run game better and bigger and he's still a great 3rd down/receiving back. We may see Jeremy Hill near the goal line, but i don't believe it will be 100% of the time and Jackson will give enough looks to Gio for it not to be a huge detriment.
 
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
With the system in place from Hue Jackson, Bernard has the most to gain. Expect big things from Gio this season.
Ahmad re-signed with the Colts and should be in line for half of the work if fully healthy. He will share time with Trent Richardson.
  
Smitty
Fantasy Football Starters
I rank Gio Bernard higher than most, and I think he actually has top 5RB upside (with 60-70 reception capability). At No. 14 overall value here, but even later in many recent drafts (I've seen him go as late as 18-20 overall), that's value!
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
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.
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Out with the old and in with the new in Cincy! Many people may not recognize that Bernard didnít start a single game in 2013, but Marvin Lewis and the Gang expect big things as Bernard is expected to be used heavily in the Cinci Offense. Previous OC Jay Gruden allowed Andy Dalton to toss 586 passes last season (The Red Rifle averaged 543 Passing Attempts over the past 3 Seasons). New OC Hue Jackson is dedicated to the ground game and the philosophy will be adapted in 2014. Expect Bernard to be heavily utilized (touching the ball around 300 times) as a dual-threat this season with huge break-out potential. (BTW Ė Bernard had 56 Receptions in 2013, which was 8th amongst RBís)
