Riddick will continue to be a PPR fantasy option, but we'll need to see who the Lions bring in at running back before we get too invested in him. A true three-down back would likely take away work from Riddick.Joe Mixon is the no-doubt lead back heading into the season, which pushes Bernard to his normal receiving-back role. Bernard did put up good numbers when injuries pushed him into more work, but he'll need a Mixon injury to have that shot again.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
 Mixon should be the primary back and may even end up as a bell-cow for the Bengals. With that said, Bernard has always performed well in a limited roll and did post 158 yards in Week 16, so there seems to be a chance that Cincy would give him another opportunity to shine in a larger role.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Possibly one of the hardest players to predict in fantasy football, as Riddick has been one of the more consistent RB3/RB4's in the game the last few years, but the scenery has changed quite a bit in Detroit. It's clear that the Bengals didn't ever view Bernard as a three-down back, as they've now drafted three running backs with high equity. Still, he's had a role with a team throughout the whole time, so it's unrealistic to think that ends now. He's never finished outside the top 45 running backs during his five-year career, and that's despite scoring just two rushing touchdowns in each of the last three seasons. He's a safe-floor, though low-upside option.
