Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (ankle) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Joe Mixon is questionable with an ankle injury. If he plays, Bernard isn’t much of a start, but if Mixon is out, he could see a big workload once again. He has averaged 21.3 touches in the last three games.

Giovani Bernard was basically used as the third-down back and held some value in PPR leagues last season. However, he was made the feature back the last five weeks of the season because of injuries to other runners on the team and he averaged almost 20 touches per game. He should be used more as the No. 2 back on the team this season.
Cincinnati will rely heavily on Joe Mixon in 2018, which means Bernard could see only about five touches per game. He still has the ability to be an every-down running back, but will probably not get the opportunity.
2018 Bottom Line
Bernard should be drafted only for depth in standard scoring leagues, but he could have some value as an RB3 in PPR leagues. His ADP is 123, making him, at best, a late-round pick.
2018 Strength of Schedule - CIN
