He's on the final year of his deal with the Bengals, so it makes sense they'd draft a running back. But two of them? Trayveon Williams is likely his replacement next year, while Rodney Anderson presents workhorse ability when healthy. This is looking like an ugly mix behind Joe Mixon in 2019, meaning you should just let someone else take Bernard in your drafts.

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.
