Giovani Bernard totals 130 yards Sunday

Giovani Bernard had 11 carries for 62 yards, a healthy 5.6 YPC, and six receptions on eight targets for 68 yards in Sunday's 33-7 loss to the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Bernard had a great day despite his team being demolished and he was top dog in both receiving yards and rushing yards. If Joe Mixon can't clear protocol for next week's game against the Vikings, Bernard will be in the RB1 conversation.

Giovani Bernard totals 96 yards Monday night

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.

Giovani Bernard totals 27 yards Sunday

Giovani Bernard had three carries for 12 yards and one reception on one target for 15 yards in Sunday's 30-16 win over Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact

Bernard has a role in the Bengals offense, it's just a small one due to the emergence of Joe Mixon.

Giovani Bernard not a factor Sunday

Giovani Bernard had three carries for negative four yards and one reception on two targets for eight yards in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Broncos.

Fantasy Impact

Bernard's usage has severely limited any fantasy value for him and that will not likely change soon.

Giovani Bernard totals 48 yards Sunday

Giovani Bernard had two carries for 10 yards and five receptions on five targets for 38 yards in Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Bernard mixed in on the passing downs with Joe Mixon handling the rushing duties. Mixon was in on 30 snaps while Bernard logged 21 with Jeremy Hill on IR. The variable in this formula will be driven by matchups and game flow. The Bengals face the Broncos next week.
