Bernard will be returning in Week 12 and will likely be eased back into the starting role. He'll likely split carries with Jeremy Hill.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Richardson has a great matchup against the 23rd ranked fantasy running back defense of the Jaguars, but it remains to be seen if he can handle the starting load in the absence of RB Ahmad Bradshaw.
Bernard was a full go at practice on Thursday and should be a RB2 with some upside this week.

TRICH gets his 10th shot to be the starting RB we all want him to be. Hopefully for at least one week against a suspect Jaguars defense he can get it done.
Owners of Bernard are eager to have their investment back on the field but you will need to watch his practice reports. Jeremy Hill could be getting another start after his impressive showing in 2 out of the past three weeks.
