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 7 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 7 vs Jacksonville
The Bengals offense hasn't been very good and that has carried over to the running backs. Giovani Bernard is not getting many touches. He has only been averaging about five per game so that means no results either.
Even with a favorable matchup this Sunday against Jacksonville, Bernard doesn't rank high enough to be in your starting lineup. Keep him on the bench for Week 7.
