Bernard has a tough matchup against the Ravens 3rd ranked fantasy running back defense, but I still think you have to start him this week.
Richardson remains a decent flex option against the injured Steelers D.

Forget about last week in Indianapolis, Gio should have a better game this week at home vs the Ravens.
Richardson has missed every practice this week and is questionable for week 8. He should probably be doubtful, but that's besides the point. Richardson is probably not going to play leaving some room for Dan "Boom" Herron to get some snaps.

Gio was a bust last week and Ravens aren't a good matchup but he's at home and he normally doesn't have bad back to back weeks.
Banged up and might sit out, but matchup is decent if he's a go.
