Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (concussion, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 12. It appears that Bernard is on track to play Week 12. Without Joe Burrow under center, Bernard is not an appealing start though the matchup against the Giants isn't bad.
CIN RB Giovani Bernard - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Baltimore
Giovani Bernard has now recorded 20+ touches in two straight games. Last Sunday, he had 131 yards from scrimmage. He has been the offensive workhorse over the past two weeks which has produced two wins for Cincinnati.
Bernard will face the Ravens who are 20th in aFPA to running backs. He wasn't a factor in the first meeting with Baltimore with only one touch. The Ravens are playing for a playoff spot so they will have all hands on deck defensively.
Bernard has been getting the touches and we expect more of the same for Week 17. Start him as a high-end RB3 or flex in standard leagues and a low-end RB2 in PPR leagues as the Bengals try to play spoiler.
