Giovani Bernard has only four touches in Week 5

Giovani Bernard had two carries for two yards and caught both of his targets for an additional 30 yards in Sunday's victory over Buffalo.

Fantasy Impact

Bernard still showed that he has value in the passing game by making the most of his two receptions. Going forward Bernard should still have value in PPR leagues as the preferred passing situation back, but he will carry a low floor with him as well. He will be a borderline flex play the rest of the way.

Giovani Bernard totals 79 yards on six touches Sunday versus the Browns

Giovani Bernard totaled 79 yards on six touches Sunday versus the Browns. Bernard rushed three times for 12 yards and caught three passes for 67 yards and a touchdown. Bernard broke off a monster screen pass that netted most of his yardage Sunday. The Bengals beat the Browns 31-7 Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Giovani Bernard only had six touches all day. In a game where the Bengals got up big it is understandable as the Bengals wanted to keep the clock running. Bernard has carved himself into the third down role and offers more value in PPR leagues.

Giovani Bernard held to 37 yards in OT loss

Giovani Bernard received three carries for 27 yards and caught both of his targets for an additional 12 yards in yesterday's loss to the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Bernard received the second most snaps at running back on the team and was the second best option from the back field for the Bengals. He appeared to have carved out a pass catching role, but played 20 less snaps than Joe Mixon yesterday. This will be a situation worth monitoring going forward with the uncertainty of how the offense will play out with a new offensive coordinator, For now Bernard is a hold in PPR formats and a borderline cut in standard.

Giovani Bernard totals 26 yards on seven touches Thursday versus Texans

Giovani Bernard totaled 26 yards on seven touches Thursday versus the Texans. Bernard rushed five times for 10 yards and caught two passes for 16 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Bernard and Joe Mixon are the two running backs in the Bengals backfield that appear to providing a little bit of fantasy value. Bernard has carved himself a role in the offense with his pass-catching abilities. However, Bernard should only be started in deeper PPR leagues with the Bengals offense struggling as it is.

Giovani Bernard totals 79 yards on eight touches Sunday versus the Ravens

Giovani Bernard totaled 79 yards on eight touches Sunday versus the Ravens. Bernard rushed seven times for 40 yards and caught one pass for 39 yards. Despite Bernard's production, the Bengals lost the game, 20-0.

Fantasy Impact

Bernard was the Bengals' most effective running back Sunday versus the Ravens. However, Bernard, Jeremy Hill, and Joe Mixon are all fighting for touches in this Bengals backfield. If that wasn't bad enough, the Bengals offensive line appears to be worse than expected. At this time, Bernard is the safest play when it comes to a Bengals running back to start week in and week out.
