Gio is very much on the rise. There is tons to love about his game and role for 2014.
Woodhead doesn't have amazing upside but he has a role and is versatile. That's enough to get him ahead of some other backs who might have seemingly more secure roles.
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
10 targets (6/62) tops among RBs in W1; Rookie Hill no threat to workload in opener (20 touches for Gio, 4 for Hill)
 
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Will handle featured run/pass duties in new OC Jackson's run first scheme.
PPR's 12th best back in 2013. Can be RB3 useful in standard formats as well.
  
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.
Woodhead is going to be in a committee role with RB Ryan Matthews and RB Donald Brown, which means he should be a RB3 to RB4 in 2014 with higher value in PPR leagues.
  
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.
 
  
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.
Danny Woodhead set a career high for receptions last season but saw his role dwindle down the stretch as Ryan Mathews finally delivered on his potential. He remains a PPR asset but is no more than an upside flex option at the time being.
  
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.
The Charger's backfield is getting tighter with the addition of Donald Brown but Woodhead's role should remain intact.
  
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)
 
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
He'll be worth a first-round pick even if touch volume increases only slightly.
Still has PPR value but won't get that many carries.
  
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.
Woodhead is a solid PPR prospect and can't be ignored in that format.
