2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
For the first 12 weeks of the season Bernard was basically a no-show, with 5-8 non-impactful touches a game. Maybe it was the sorry state of the Bengal offense, or a slow return as he worked his way back from a 2016 ACL injury, but for most of the fantasy season Bernard wasn't even worth a roster spot. But sometimes fantasy is all about opportunity, and that's what Bernard received in Week 13 when he got the start for an injured Mixon. He put up 96 total yards in a narrow loss to the Steelers, and continued to give the offense a spark with 100+ yards in two of the final four games of the season. Being quicker to the hole than Mixon allowed Bernard to find enough gaps to surpass 5 yards-per-carry four times to end the season.

Bernard has been a consistent dual threat for the Bengals since his rookie year, but it's long been clear that Cincinnati views him only as a passing game/change of pace option. With the team set to lean on Mixon, Bernard should be able to thrive in his part-time role. I know he finished strong last season, but in two of those games the Bengals were absolutely annihilated, and he was able to pick up lots of garbage time statistics. Nearly two years removed from his ACL injury, and still on a team that doesn't have many reliable passing catching options, Bernard not only makes for a strong handcuff for Mixon owners, but a real option in PPR leagues. 700 total yards and a few touchdowns makes him a tough sell in standard leagues, but he should be good value for where you can draft him.

News From The Past 90 Days

Cleanup procedure

Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon came out of Thursday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens multiple times, gritting through pain to help finish out the 34-23 win. Reports indicate Mixon will need arthroscopic surgery on his knee and sought a second opinion. The issue is not thought to be serious through the lens of the season, but could keep Mixon out for a couple games, via Adam Schefter. The good news for the Bengals is they have 10 days off until they play at Carolina. (Cincinnati Enquirer)

FFToday's Take: Arthroscopic procedures are typically come with a 2-4 week recovery time. While Mixon is out, Giovani Bernard will take over as the lead back with Tra Carson and Mark Walton filling out the depth chart. The Bengals schedule includes: @Carolina, @ Atlanta, Miami and Pittsburgh.
