CIN RB Giovani Bernard - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook
Giovanni Bernard has settled into his role as Joe Mixon’s backup. He still is an important part of the offense and will be used in the passing game out of the backfield. Mixon will need to be spelled and Bernard can be useful in that role. His career numbers show he can be effective however the Bengals use him.
Bernard had career-lows in carries, receptions, rushing yards and receiving yards last season, part of that because he missed four games with knee issues. He also has had trouble finding the end zone during his career which doesn’t help his fantasy stock.
2019 Bottom Line
Reliable is the best way to describe Bernard. He should still get over 100 touches but is depth at best entering the season. His ADP is 209 although taking him a little earlier would match his overall fantasy value.
