Giovani Bernard totals 70 yards Sunday

Giovani Bernard had 10 carries for 52 yards and six receptions on nine targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 31-27 win over the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

Bernard was deep on the depth chart at the start of the 2017 campaign and came into his own late in the season filling in for Joe Mixon, amassing over 500 yards during the final five games. He should have a solid role in the offense in 2018.
