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 'looking great' in his rehab

Cincinnati Bengals beat writer Geoff Hobson is reporting running back Giovani Bernard is "looking great in his ACL rehab," but doesn't believe the team "wants to rush him back into the first couple of regular-season games."

Fantasy Impact

Although Hobson believes the Bengals could hold Bernard out of the first few regular season games in 2017, the beat writer doesn't think the ailing rusher will open the year on the PUP list. Since this is only speculation, and it is still June, Bernard's fantasy value shouldn't take too much of a hit. However, if there is no improvement with Bernard's health as the offseason progresses, his ADP will likely fall heading into fantasy draft season. In his absence, Joe Mixon, who has been highly touted at OTAs, is expected to assume Bernard's role in the backfield.
