Any hope of Bernard carving out more of a split than he saw before Joe Mixon injured his knee is now probably out the window. Already looking like a potential league-winner after scoring 25.9 points Week 1 and shouldering 23 touches Week 2 before he got hurt, Mixon's spot among the RB1s this week, and probably for the rest of the season, is now set in stone.
CIN RB Giovani Bernard - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 12 vs. Cleveland Browns
Giovani Bernard will play in his third game since he returned from injury. He has had limited touches (four carries, six receptions) in those two games but has been playing on third downs which helps his PPR value. That has produced a total of 11 rushing yards and 50 receiving yards.
Bernard has a great matchup against Cleveland who is 26th in aFPA to running backs. However, the touches have not been there, so keep him on the bench for Week 12.
