Bernard will have Joe Mixon to contend with this season, and we've yet to see how Bernard has returned from his injury. This backfield could go in many different directions, but none seem to point to Bernard improving his fantasy standing.

Giovani Bernard to be limited at OTAs

Cincinnati Bengals beat writer Katherine Terrell is reporting running back Giovani Bernard (ACL) is expected to be limited for the start of OTAs on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Bernard, who is eight months removed from tearing his ACL, is on track to be a limited participant for the start of OTAs on Tuesday. However, what is concerning for his 2017 outlook is his questionable role on Cincinnati's offense. The Bengals shook up their backfield this offseason parting ways with Rex Burkhead and adding Joe Mixon in the recent NFL Draft. As Mixon is likely to challenge Jeremy Hill for his starting job, Bernard's role as the team's primary receiver out of the backfield, plus, the change of pace back, is presumably safe. I'd still target Bernard as the starter's handcuff, whomever that will be.
