Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
Not sure he'll lead this committee. Down. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
With Leonard Fournette released, Ryquell Armstead became the favourite for carries in Jacksonville. He then popped up on the Covid list again and seems unlikely to have a role any time soon. He can now be dropped in all redraft leagues.Giovani Bernard is the backup in Cincinnati. If Joe Mixon holds out there's a solid chance Bernard will be the guy who fills in and that's quite a valuable role in this offense. While Trayveon Williams and Rodney Anderson will surely gets some snaps, they're 6th rounders for a reason and they're not likely to immediately take the lead away from Gio. I'm not saying Bernard should be a high draft priority but he does have good upside if you're running short on options.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
With Leonard Fournette no longer in Jacksonville, Armstead is looking like the early downs guy for the time being. Meanwhile, it will be Chris Thompson catching all the passes making him the one I'd target first. I like them both near the 10th round.As usual, Bernard can't be considered as anything more than a handcuff in 2020 with Joe Mixon primed for a breakout season. That being said, there have been few handcuffs more valuable than over the last few years. I don't see much stand-alone value, but if you drafted Mixon, I highly recommend targeting Bernard.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Armstead is now the presumed starting running back for the Jacksonville Jaguars after Leonard Fournette's release. While he should see the majority of the work on first and second downs, Chris Thompson will be the receiving option in this backfield. This will take away some of the work that could help inflate Armstead's fantasy production. On a team that figures to be trailing a lot in 2020, Armstead could see some work early on in games and then be replaced by Thompson quickly as they play "catch up". Armstead's a fine bench stash right now, but he's unlikely to be anywhere close to a RB2 at any point this season.Bernard's a fine football player, but he's not very fantasy relevant. He'll see enough work to hurt Joe Mixon's overall potential, but Bernard isn't someone that you should feel comfortable rolling out in your lineups this season.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After the Jaguars cut Leonard Fournette, Armstead is the starter for the Jaguars. Unfortunately, it's still a team that'll be in negative gamescripts the majority of time and he's not someone who's an above average pass-catcher. I'm expecting 12-15 touches per game for him, which does offer RB3 value, but there's not a very high ceiling here.It's kind of crazy how fast everyone fell off the Bernard bandwagon, as he was once considered a borderline RB1. He is obviously behind Joe Mixon on the depth chart, but that's the only player standing between him and a 15-touch role. Mixon is also in a contract year and has threatened a holdout without a new contract. If we get closer to the NFL season and Mixon still hasn't been locked up long term, Bernard should be someone you consider in the late rounds.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Leonard Fournette dominated the backfield touches in Jacksonville last year, leaving Armstead little room to do anything during his rookie season. But now, with the Jaguars releasing Fournette, the backfield should be Armstead's, unless and until the Jaguars sign another running back. Until then, Armstead should be drafted as someone who should see upwards of 15 carries a game, but in a poor offense that will likely be playing in negative game scripts often, he's no better than a low-end Flex.Had Bernard not missed six games in 2016 that artificially kept his numbers down, he'd be coming off three straight years of declining touches. As it is, he's been nothing more than a change-of-pace back for the last two seasons, who occasionally factors into the passing game but rarely does anything noteworthy. Even with an injury to Joe Mixon, it's doubtful that Bernard would carry the load himself given his age and size, so he's best ignored in fantasy circles.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
 He's never had fewer than 40 targets, or 30 receptions in a season, plays consistently around 40% of the time, and also gets to play with Joe Burrow, strange they don't sub him out when Mixon comes off
