With Joe Mixon finally landing on IR, Gio will get the start here yet again. Unfortunately, he's done very little with his expanded opportunity in recent weeks and he now gets a significant downgrade at QB. Bernard's going to have to deal with the Giants defense too, which has been playing pretty well as of late. All signs point to fading Bernard this week and it's going to be hard to trust him in your starting lineup. Gio can be viewed as a high-end RB3 purely based on the fantasy landscape.

Giovani Bernard rushes for 32 yards

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard rushed eight times for 32 yards and added 17 yards on two receptions in a 19-17 loss to the Giants in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact

Bernard led the Bengals in rushing on a day where the Brandon Allen-led offense was dismal. Bernard will continue to operate as the team's lead back while Joe Mixon is on IR but his ceiling is considerably lower with Joe Burrow out for the remainder of the season. He will be a low-end flex against the Dolphins in Week 13.
