Mixon is day-to-day, meaning he has a chance to suit up for Week 2, but he'll likely miss some practice this week. The Bengals play an early game in Week 2, hosting the 49ers. Bernard would be the team's RB1 if Mixon can't go.
CIN RB Giovani Bernard - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 12 vs Pittsburgh
The good news for anyone who owns Giovani Bernard is he was on the field for more than 50% of the snaps last game, the first time he has eclipsed that mark since Week 6. The bad news is he still only got four touches,
Bernard faces the Steelers who are 6th in aFPA to running backs. He only had five touches back in Week 4 against the Steelers.
Bernard has very little fantasy value unless something happens to Joe Mixon so keep him on the waiver wire as you just won't get touches from him.
