Fantasy Impact:

Bernard was unable to practice this week due to an MCL sprain, and ultimately ended up being ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. His next chance to return will be Week 5 against the Miami Dolphins. Leonard Fournette will be the Buccaneers' top pass-catching running back and should see an expanded role in Week 4. The 26-year-old is a flex play and currently 29th among all running backs in the latest expert consensus rankings.
