Bengals RB Giovani Bernard to push 300 touches

ESPN - [Full Article]

One of the more intriguing storylines that we're tracking in Bengals training camp revolves around running back Giovani Bernard and the increased touches he's expecting this season.

He first heard during the spring that he was going to take on a greater share of the offensive load. He should be on the field more regularly and be put in better situations to see his number of touches increase from the 226 he had last year to somewhere closer to the neighborhood of 300.

Fantasy Impact: 

This falls right in line with our thinking too, as we have him a shade under 300 touches at the moment. Bernard's been going early in the second round and looks like a great option as either and RB2 if you go RB in the first, or even a low-end RB1 if you grab a WR or TE Jimmy Graham in the first.
