Will start season in timeshare before becoming clear lead back; too talented to leave BJGE on field   
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Not the ideal matchup for your NFL debut.Woodhead has nice PPR value but in standard leagues is a shaky Flex at best to get 2013 started.  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Bernard is as shifty as they come, and I'd imagine his role with the Bengals will increase as the year progresses. However, The Law Firm seems destined to get the carries in scoring situations, so that gives me some pause with Bernard.Woodhead figures to see the field plenty in third-down opportunities, so his worth will be limited. However, Ryan Mathews is made of glass, as we know, so Woodhead's workload could escalate in the event of an injury to the San Diego starter.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
I do not think the Law Firm is going to have much luck running up the middle of the Bears D, but I think Bernard could give them some problems on the outside and in the passing game.   
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
Bernard is the RB Cincinnati has always lacked, as he is explosive and capable of catching passes out of the backfield. We expect Bernard to have a strong shot at Rookie of the Year. FYI – Bernard is currently driving his Girlfriend’s Mom’s tan mini-van to training camp. Look for that to change soon.   
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Bernard faces a tough defense on the road for his NFL debut. The Bears ranked 4th best in fantasy points given up to running backs last season and Bernard will split carries with Green-Ellis to start the season. It's tough to know exactly how much work he'll get so I'm shying away.   
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
If you want to make a strong play in your draft, go for Bernard before Green-Ellis is off the board. The Bengals need Bernard to make them an electric offense like they know they can be. Bernard brings that Reggie Bush "X" Factor to the team if he gets going, while I will not compare him to Reggie now. He could be something special in the consistent Darren Sproles range.Woodhead will be good for 3rd Downs and the occasional games that Ryan Matthews miss. Woodhead can put up Fantasy Numbers if he gets his opportunities, which looks to be the case. The Chargers also lack a lot in the offensive line, which could bring Woodhead in the game on passing downs consistently.

 Woodhead is now with the Chargers and will serve in the same capacity as he did in New England. Sparkplug/change-of-pace.
