By now, you've most likely seen the pictures circulating on social media of Gio's quads. While that's incredibly impressive, it unfortunately does not mean a direct correlation to fantasy football success. Bernard should be involved as the reliable pass-catching option out of the backfield for Tom Brady, but his usage isn't going to be predictable enough that he's worth drafting early on. If you're in a Full PPR format and want to take Gio with one of your last picks, it's a fine investment. Otherwise, there are better players to take chances on in that range. My Very Early Projection: 43-136-0 rushing & 44-340-1 receiving.

Giovani Bernard making positive impact in first offseason with Buccaneers

Buccaneers offseason acquisition Giovani Bernard has made a positive impact on his new team. According to Greg Auman of The Athletic, "the 29-year-old came as advertised, impressively deciding to attend both voluntary OTAs and Tom Brady’s unofficial workouts as he tries to learn a new offense and new teammates."

Fantasy Impact

Bernard is on track to have a key role this upcoming season. While he'll open the year as the No. 3 running back, he's the best blocker and pass-catcher in Tampa Bay's backfield. He should handle the third-down role with ease and will allow Ronald Jones and Leonard Fournette to catch their breath. Bernard ranks 56th among running backs in the latest expert consensus draft rankings.
