M. Lewis: Gio Bernard will get 'a little bit more' work in Bengals backfield

Ross Tucker, Twitter - [Full Article]

Ross Tucker: Bengals HC Marvin Lewis told me "A smart guy would say Gio gets a little bit more" when I asked him about Giovani Bernard/Jeremy Hill touches.

Fantasy Impact: 

We currently project Bernard for 257 touches (197 carries, 60 catches) and Hill for 201 touches (175 carries, 26 catches). Bernard saw 226 touches last season, so we don't see an additional 31 touches as a stretch after an offseason where multiple reports said that he would push 300 touches in 2014. Bernard looks like a low-end RB1 in both standard and PPR formats, while Hill has RB3/flex appeal
