Giovani Bernard quiet in finale

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard rushed three times for seven yards and added another eight yards on two catches in a 16-13 loss to the Steelers in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Bernard saw his workload dissipate in 2018 with the Bengals utilizing Joe Mixon as a true workhorse. Bernard finishes 2018 with 56 rushes for 211 yards and three touchdowns while chipping in 35 catches for 218 yards. Those numbers, outside of the touchdowns, go down as career-lows. He is under contract with the Bengals for one more season and might need a change of scenery to regain fantasy relevance.

Giovani Bernard catches two passes

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard caught two passes for zero yards in his team's 26-18 loss to the Browns in Week 16. He did not receive a carry.

Fantasy Impact

Bernard was sparsely used, as has been the case all season when Joe Mixon has been healthy. The veteran third-down back will not be a fantasy option in Week 17 against the Steelers.

Giovani Bernard does little on eight touches

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard carried the ball six times for seven yards and added two catches for 25 yards in a 30-16 win over the Raiders in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

Bernard has struggled to do much since starter Joe Mixon came back from a knee injury earlier in the season. As long as Mixon is healthy, Bernard will not be a fantasy consideration. Leave him on the bench for his Week 16 matchup with the Browns.

Giovani Bernard sees five touches

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard rushed three times for seven yards and added two catches for 13 yards in his team's 26-21 loss to the Chargers in Week 14.

Fantasy Impact

Bernard has next to no fantasy value with Joe Mixon healthy and hogging most of the running back work. Leave him on the bench in Week 15, despite a plus matchup against Oakland.

Giovani Bernard catches six passes

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard caught six passes for 32 yards in his team's 24-10 loss to the Broncos in Week 13. He also rushed five times for 14 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Bernard turned in a solid effort after being used sparsely over the previous few weeks. He is little more than a handcuff option at this point of the season.
