by Steve Painter | Bengals Correspondent | Tue, Dec 5th 1:55pm EST

Giovani Bernard had 13 carries for 77 yards and two receptions on three targets for 19 yards in Monday night's 23-20 loss to Pittsburgh. Bernard assumed the lead running back role in the second quarter after Joe Mixon left the game with a concussion.

Fantasy Impact:

With a short-week situation and Mixon's status up in the air, Bernard will likely be a popular addition for fantasy teams heading into the first week of playoffs. The Bengals face the Bears this Sunday, and running backs have a 3.9 YPC against them.
