Jeremy Hill

Cincinnati Bengals

Running back by community for Bengals?


Joe Mixon actually led the Bengals with 8 rushing attempts and 3 passing targets in week 1. Problem is on those 8 carries he gained 9 yards for 1.1 per tote. He had the 2nd most total snaps on offense with 22 (36% of offensive snaps). Meaning when he was on the field, they were going to him half the time.

Giovani Bernard led the team with 29 snaps (48%), maybe because they were down for the entire game and he's their 3rd down back. Gio had the best running play for 23 yards and the longest catch as well with a 39-yard catch and run. Gio looked the best of the lot in Week 1, but was that situational?

Jeremy Hill looked like shit. Only on the field for 10 plays (16%) and didn't do much with his lake of opportunities. Looks like Hill is nothing more than a power game runner that has to score a red zone TD to do anything for your team.

Joe Mixon

Cincinnati Bengals

Hill 1, Gio 2, Mixon 3, For Now


With the first preseason game on Friday, the Bengals released their 1st depth chart of 2017. In a surprise to some they have Hill as the RB1, Bernard as the RB2, and Mixon among the RB3’s.

Fantasy Goo:It won’t be long before Hill and Mixon get flipped on this list. I think every team has upside-down depth charts for trade bait at this point in the preseason. Hill and Bernard are still worth drafting in round 12 or later, they could hold on to their roles for the first half of the season, but Mixon will take over before long.

Bengals To Use Running Back Tandem On field Together In 2016


The Bengals have suffered a ton of losses on the offensive side of the ball this offseason. WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamad Sanu both left via free agency and ProBowl TE Tyler Eifert may not be ready for the season opener because of injuries. To make up for these losses, Cincinnati Bengals editor Geoff Hobson reports that the Bengals may use more two-back sets involving both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. (CincinnatiBengals.com )

Fantasy Goo: This would be great for the fantasy value of both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill, who are both way too talented to split carries the way that they did last season. Bernard in particular, provides plenty of value in PPR leagues because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. If Eifert misses a significant period of time, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bernard was the second leading receiver in yards and receptions on the Bengals. The loss of Eifert also helps Hill’s value as well. Last year on the goal-line, QB Andy Dalton basically stared down TE Tyler Eifert on route to a league leading 13 TDs. If Eifert is out, those goal-line throws may turn into handoffs for Hill.

Cincinnati Bengals

Jeremy Hill Star vs Dud


For all of the talk that 2015 was a down year for Hill, he still wound up being one of the best fantasy backs in terms of scoring... Just not on a consistent basis. But this is also a good example of how a good fantasy player doesn't always translate into an actual good player.

Fantasy Goo: A sophomore slump or sophomore jinx or sophomore jitters refers to an instance in which a second, or sophomore, effort fails to live up to the standards of the first effort. In 2014, Hill had 1,339 combined yards vs 873 in 2015. Oddly, Hill improved his touchdown numbers from a very nice 9 rookie touchdowns to an even better 12 touchdowns in 2015. I loved Jeremy Hills tape from Tennessee and believe the Bengals are still all-in on Hill for this upcoming season. Fantasy football is about touchdowns for most leagues and Hill could easily put up 10 in 2016. Jeremy Hill should get his 225 touches as well with no real goal line or between the tackles threat on the roster. Do not fear Giovani Bernard.

Gio gets 3-year Extension


The extension puts Bernard under contract through the 2019 season.

"It's great to be able to extend our commitment with Gio," coach Marvin Lewis said in a statement. "It's all a part of what I keep saying -- draft the right players, develop them and retain them. We're excited about the great things Gio will continue to add to our offense."

Fantasy Goo: The Bengals backfield will once again be a timeshare in 2016, with Gio doing dual work as the receiving threat. Jeremy Hill will once again frustrate his owners when Gio steps in if he struggles. Bernard had a 4.7 YPC average last season.

Bengals ink Bernard to 3-year, $15.5M extension


The Cincinnati Bengals singed running back Giovani Bernard to a three-year, $15.5 million contract extension, locking him down through 2019.

Fantasy Goo: Giovani Bernard had a nice season for a backup running back in 2016 with 1,202 and 2 touchdowns. Jeremy Hill owners will want to handcuff Giovani Bernard sometime late in the draft after round 10 or so based on how fast running backs are going in your own draft. Jeremy Hill came out smoking his rookie season but, last year he did not seem to be mentally prepared for the lion’s share of the running duties. Jeremy Hill produced touchdowns but was not dependable especially considering his high draft spot. Gio is one of those guys nobody else will care much about unless they have Jeremy Hill. Gio is a very nice PPR play for a late rounder.

Giovani Bernard rushed eight times for 36 yards and caught 5-of-8 targets for 43 yards


He out-snapped backfield mate Jeremy Hill 50-22, according to PFF's Nate Jahnke, and out-gained Hill 79-20 on just three more touches.

Its obvious that Hill isnt much more than a short yardage goal back, and Bernard is doing all the other work, he is especially a hot commodity in PPR leagues, and should be treated as a number 2 or flex play.

Not Expected


If you have Jeremy Hill continue to put him in your lineup. He wont be the PPR player that Gio is, but is still valuable around the goal line, and will grab one or two receptions for your team.

Possibly Out Longer


Its been rumored that Jeremy Hill has been moving up the board in Cincinnati, and has already cut Bernard's playing time in half when he returns.

Bernard's validity as a starter on your fantasy team is now up for debate, at the very worst he makes a good flex option, but see if you can get some high value for him.

Giovani Bernard

Cincinnati Bengals

Out-According to Paul Dehner


It would of been surprising to see him in the lineup after this short week. He will get more than 2 1/2 weeks of rest now, and should be ready for the following week.

Jeremy Hill can more than handle himself as the feature back and Bernard appeared to be wearing down a bit before his injury. If Gio is inactive, Hill will be a no-brainer RB1.

Jeremy Hill will have the backfield to himself, and should put up some good numbers against the Jaguars defense, and should be a must start on most rosters.

Giovani Bernard

Cincinnati Bengals

Gio showing he can handle the goal line


Jeremy Hill may weigh 20 more pounds than Gio, but the rookie has yet to prove it on the big stage. Bernard ran for five touchdowns last season, and with a more run focused offense that number should rise in 2014.

The good news for those who are fans of Gio, like me, is that he will get work in the redzone, and on the goal line. While he is not a true workhorse back, he is also not a back that is pulled inside the five-yard line. He is a determined runner, and should be able to build on his rookie season where he had 1,209 yards from scrimmage with 56 receptions.

Giovani Bernard

Cincinnati Bengals

Gio is not going to be a 25 touch player this year according to Jay Gruden


Gio is a fantastic back, who has the potential to turn any play into a big gainer. I do also feel what Gruden says is correct. Bernard is not going to be as effective if he is taking the punishment of 20+ carries.

We have seen what happened when the Bills decided to make C.J. Spiller a 20 carry player, and the Bengals should learn from that. Gio is a special talent, and he should be on the field more, but he does need to stay fresh.

This week Bernard is facing the Ravens who are only giving up 11.9 points a game to running backs, which is the best in the league. It would be wise to temper your expectations for him this week, but he can always break one.

Gio impressing everyone


We hope you have this guy on your team, because we were all over this before the season started. Gio is by far the most talented back for the Bengals, and has shown the ability to do it all. Bernard will continue to see his role in the offense grow, and has become a solid RB2 with upside in fantasy football.

Giovani Bernard impressive again


We have told you for awhile now that Giovani is going to be the real fantasy player for the Bengals, and this game was a prelude of things to come. Bernard was able to show off all the aspects of his game with running and receiving touchdowns. The bigger touchdown may have been the touchdown run against a tough run defense and he showed his determination pushing the ball over the goal line. The Law Firm is in trouble and will eventually give way to the rookie.

Giovani Bernard continues to impress


Giovani Bernard has been climbing in my tiers since the start of training camp. This game performance is just another feather in this cap and reason to understand that Bernard is going to have much more value this season than The Law Firm.

Bernard is showing all the flash and ability that made him a coveted player by the Bengals, and with his addition, as well as Tyler Eifert, the Bengals should have a lot more pop in their offense this season.

Cincinnati Bengals

Giovani Bernard scores a touchdown and makes 3 catches


This is a decent showing for Bernard in his first NFL action. He was not able to break a big run, but being able to score in a goal line formation is encouraging. Bernard was able to be more effective in the passing game with his 3 catches, and that is where he should make a bigger impact in his rookie season.

Bernard is still trying to take the starting job from Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis and now has 3 more games to make a bigger impression.

Cincinnati Bengals

Giovani Bernard will make a PPR impact


Bernard was drafted to be the Bengals back of the future, and his pass catching skills were a big reason why they wanted him. Bernard had 92 receptions for 852 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2 years at North Carolina. Bernard was already going to be the change of pace from The Law Firm, but now it seems that he is going to see a lot of involvement in the passing game and could have at least 40 catches this season, making him a viable option in PPR leagues.

Giovani Bernard led the team with 29 snaps (48%), maybe because they were down for the entire game and he's their 3rd down back. Gio had the best running play for 23 yards and the longest catch as well with a 39-yard catch and run. Gio looked the best of the lot in Week 1, but was that situational?

Jeremy Hill looked like shit. Only on the field for 10 plays (16%) and didn't do much with his lake of opportunities. Looks like Hill is nothing more than a power game runner that has to score a red zone TD to do anything for your team.

Cincinnati Bengals

Hill 1, Gio 2, Mixon 3, For Now


With the first preseason game on Friday, the Bengals released their 1st depth chart of 2017. In a surprise to some they have Hill as the RB1, Bernard as the RB2, and Mixon among the RB3’s.

Fantasy Goo:It won’t be long before Hill and Mixon get flipped on this list. I think every team has upside-down depth charts for trade bait at this point in the preseason. Hill and Bernard are still worth drafting in round 12 or later, they could hold on to their roles for the first half of the season, but Mixon will take over before long.

Bengals To Use Running Back Tandem On field Together In 2016


The Bengals have suffered a ton of losses on the offensive side of the ball this offseason. WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamad Sanu both left via free agency and ProBowl TE Tyler Eifert may not be ready for the season opener because of injuries. To make up for these losses, Cincinnati Bengals editor Geoff Hobson reports that the Bengals may use more two-back sets involving both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. (CincinnatiBengals.com )

Fantasy Goo: This would be great for the fantasy value of both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill, who are both way too talented to split carries the way that they did last season. Bernard in particular, provides plenty of value in PPR leagues because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. If Eifert misses a significant period of time, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bernard was the second leading receiver in yards and receptions on the Bengals. The loss of Eifert also helps Hill’s value as well. Last year on the goal-line, QB Andy Dalton basically stared down TE Tyler Eifert on route to a league leading 13 TDs. If Eifert is out, those goal-line throws may turn into handoffs for Hill.

Jeremy Hill Star vs Dud


For all of the talk that 2015 was a down year for Hill, he still wound up being one of the best fantasy backs in terms of scoring... Just not on a consistent basis. But this is also a good example of how a good fantasy player doesn't always translate into an actual good player.

Fantasy Goo: A sophomore slump or sophomore jinx or sophomore jitters refers to an instance in which a second, or sophomore, effort fails to live up to the standards of the first effort. In 2014, Hill had 1,339 combined yards vs 873 in 2015. Oddly, Hill improved his touchdown numbers from a very nice 9 rookie touchdowns to an even better 12 touchdowns in 2015. I loved Jeremy Hills tape from Tennessee and believe the Bengals are still all-in on Hill for this upcoming season. Fantasy football is about touchdowns for most leagues and Hill could easily put up 10 in 2016. Jeremy Hill should get his 225 touches as well with no real goal line or between the tackles threat on the roster. Do not fear Giovani Bernard.

The extension puts Bernard under contract through the 2019 season.

"It's great to be able to extend our commitment with Gio," coach Marvin Lewis said in a statement. "It's all a part of what I keep saying -- draft the right players, develop them and retain them. We're excited about the great things Gio will continue to add to our offense."

Fantasy Goo: The Bengals backfield will once again be a timeshare in 2016, with Gio doing dual work as the receiving threat. Jeremy Hill will once again frustrate his owners when Gio steps in if he struggles. Bernard had a 4.7 YPC average last season.

The Cincinnati Bengals singed running back Giovani Bernard to a three-year, $15.5 million contract extension, locking him down through 2019.

Fantasy Goo: Giovani Bernard had a nice season for a backup running back in 2016 with 1,202 and 2 touchdowns. Jeremy Hill owners will want to handcuff Giovani Bernard sometime late in the draft after round 10 or so based on how fast running backs are going in your own draft. Jeremy Hill came out smoking his rookie season but, last year he did not seem to be mentally prepared for the lion’s share of the running duties. Jeremy Hill produced touchdowns but was not dependable especially considering his high draft spot. Gio is one of those guys nobody else will care much about unless they have Jeremy Hill. Gio is a very nice PPR play for a late rounder.

He out-snapped backfield mate Jeremy Hill 50-22, according to PFF's Nate Jahnke, and out-gained Hill 79-20 on just three more touches.

Its obvious that Hill isnt much more than a short yardage goal back, and Bernard is doing all the other work, he is especially a hot commodity in PPR leagues, and should be treated as a number 2 or flex play.

Possibly Out Longer


Its been rumored that Jeremy Hill has been moving up the board in Cincinnati, and has already cut Bernard's playing time in half when he returns.

Bernard's validity as a starter on your fantasy team is now up for debate, at the very worst he makes a good flex option, but see if you can get some high value for him.

Out-According to Paul Dehner


It would of been surprising to see him in the lineup after this short week. He will get more than 2 1/2 weeks of rest now, and should be ready for the following week.

Jeremy Hill can more than handle himself as the feature back and Bernard appeared to be wearing down a bit before his injury. If Gio is inactive, Hill will be a no-brainer RB1.

Gio showing he can handle the goal line


Jeremy Hill may weigh 20 more pounds than Gio, but the rookie has yet to prove it on the big stage. Bernard ran for five touchdowns last season, and with a more run focused offense that number should rise in 2014.

The good news for those who are fans of Gio, like me, is that he will get work in the redzone, and on the goal line. While he is not a true workhorse back, he is also not a back that is pulled inside the five-yard line. He is a determined runner, and should be able to build on his rookie season where he had 1,209 yards from scrimmage with 56 receptions.

Gio is not going to be a 25 touch player this year according to Jay Gruden


Gio is a fantastic back, who has the potential to turn any play into a big gainer. I do also feel what Gruden says is correct. Bernard is not going to be as effective if he is taking the punishment of 20+ carries.

We have seen what happened when the Bills decided to make C.J. Spiller a 20 carry player, and the Bengals should learn from that. Gio is a special talent, and he should be on the field more, but he does need to stay fresh.

This week Bernard is facing the Ravens who are only giving up 11.9 points a game to running backs, which is the best in the league. It would be wise to temper your expectations for him this week, but he can always break one.

We have told you for awhile now that Giovani is going to be the real fantasy player for the Bengals, and this game was a prelude of things to come. Bernard was able to show off all the aspects of his game with running and receiving touchdowns. The bigger touchdown may have been the touchdown run against a tough run defense and he showed his determination pushing the ball over the goal line. The Law Firm is in trouble and will eventually give way to the rookie.

Giovani Bernard has been climbing in my tiers since the start of training camp. This game performance is just another feather in this cap and reason to understand that Bernard is going to have much more value this season than The Law Firm.

Bernard is showing all the flash and ability that made him a coveted player by the Bengals, and with his addition, as well as Tyler Eifert, the Bengals should have a lot more pop in their offense this season.

This is a decent showing for Bernard in his first NFL action. He was not able to break a big run, but being able to score in a goal line formation is encouraging. Bernard was able to be more effective in the passing game with his 3 catches, and that is where he should make a bigger impact in his rookie season.

Bernard is still trying to take the starting job from Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis and now has 3 more games to make a bigger impression.

Bernard was drafted to be the Bengals back of the future, and his pass catching skills were a big reason why they wanted him. Bernard had 92 receptions for 852 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2 years at North Carolina. Bernard was already going to be the change of pace from The Law Firm, but now it seems that he is going to see a lot of involvement in the passing game and could have at least 40 catches this season, making him a viable option in PPR leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals

Jeremy Hill Star vs Dud


For all of the talk that 2015 was a down year for Hill, he still wound up being one of the best fantasy backs in terms of scoring... Just not on a consistent basis. But this is also a good example of how a good fantasy player doesn't always translate into an actual good player.

Fantasy Goo: A sophomore slump or sophomore jinx or sophomore jitters refers to an instance in which a second, or sophomore, effort fails to live up to the standards of the first effort. In 2014, Hill had 1,339 combined yards vs 873 in 2015. Oddly, Hill improved his touchdown numbers from a very nice 9 rookie touchdowns to an even better 12 touchdowns in 2015. I loved Jeremy Hills tape from Tennessee and believe the Bengals are still all-in on Hill for this upcoming season.

Gio gets 3-year Extension


The extension puts Bernard under contract through the 2019 season.

"It's great to be able to extend our commitment with Gio," coach Marvin Lewis said in a statement. "It's all a part of what I keep saying -- draft the right players, develop them and retain them. We're excited about the great things Gio will continue to add to our offense."

Fantasy Goo: The Bengals backfield will once again be a timeshare in 2016, with Gio doing dual work as the receiving threat. Jeremy Hill will once again frustrate his owners when Gio steps in if he struggles. Bernard had a 4.7 YPC average last season.

Bengals ink Bernard to 3-year, $15.5M extension


The Cincinnati Bengals singed running back Giovani Bernard to a three-year, $15.5 million contract extension, locking him down through 2019.

Fantasy Goo: Giovani Bernard had a nice season for a backup running back in 2016 with 1,202 and 2 touchdowns. Jeremy Hill owners will want to handcuff Giovani Bernard sometime late in the draft after round 10 or so based on how fast running backs are going in your own draft. Jeremy Hill came out smoking his rookie season but, last year he did not seem to be mentally prepared for the lion’s share of the running duties. Jeremy Hill produced touchdowns but was not dependable especially considering his high draft spot. Gio is one of those guys nobody else will care much about unless they have Jeremy Hill. Gio is a very nice PPR play for a late rounder.

Jeremy Hill may weigh 20 more pounds than Gio, but the rookie has yet to prove it on the big stage. Bernard ran for five touchdowns last season, and with a more run focused offense that number should rise in 2014.

The good news for those who are fans of Gio, like me, is that he will get work in the redzone, and on the goal line. While he is not a true workhorse back, he is also not a back that is pulled inside the five-yard line. He is a determined runner, and should be able to build on his rookie season where he had 1,209 yards from scrimmage with 56 receptions.

Gio is not going to be a 25 touch player this year according to Jay Gruden


Gio is a fantastic back, who has the potential to turn any play into a big gainer. I do also feel what Gruden says is correct. Bernard is not going to be as effective if he is taking the punishment of 20+ carries.

We have seen what happened when the Bills decided to make C.J. Spiller a 20 carry player, and the Bengals should learn from that. Gio is a special talent, and he should be on the field more, but he does need to stay fresh.

This week Bernard is facing the Ravens who are only giving up 11.9 points a game to running backs, which is the best in the league. It would be wise to temper your expectations for him this week, but he can always break one.

Giovani Bernard has been climbing in my tiers since the start of training camp. This game performance is just another feather in this cap and reason to understand that Bernard is going to have much more value this season than The Law Firm.

Bernard is showing all the flash and ability that made him a coveted player by the Bengals, and with his addition, as well as Tyler Eifert, the Bengals should have a lot more pop in their offense this season.

This is a decent showing for Bernard in his first NFL action. He was not able to break a big run, but being able to score in a goal line formation is encouraging. Bernard was able to be more effective in the passing game with his 3 catches, and that is where he should make a bigger impact in his rookie season.

Bernard is still trying to take the starting job from Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis and now has 3 more games to make a bigger impression.

Bernard was drafted to be the Bengals back of the future, and his pass catching skills were a big reason why they wanted him. Bernard had 92 receptions for 852 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2 years at North Carolina. Bernard was already going to be the change of pace from The Law Firm, but now it seems that he is going to see a lot of involvement in the passing game and could have at least 40 catches this season, making him a viable option in PPR leagues.

Running back by community for Bengals?


Joe Mixon actually led the Bengals with 8 rushing attempts and 3 passing targets in week 1. Problem is on those 8 carries he gained 9 yards for 1.1 per tote. He had the 2nd most total snaps on offense with 22 (36% of offensive snaps). Meaning when he was on the field, they were going to him half the time.

Giovani Bernard led the team with 29 snaps (48%), maybe because they were down for the entire game and he's their 3rd down back. Gio had the best running play for 23 yards and the longest catch as well with a 39-yard catch and run. Gio looked the best of the lot in Week 1, but was that situational?

Jeremy Hill looked like shit. Only on the field for 10 plays (16%) and didn't do much with his lake of opportunities. Looks like Hill is nothing more than a power game runner that has to score a red zone TD to do anything for your team.

With the first preseason game on Friday, the Bengals released their 1st depth chart of 2017. In a surprise to some they have Hill as the RB1, Bernard as the RB2, and Mixon among the RB3’s.

Fantasy Goo:It won’t be long before Hill and Mixon get flipped on this list. I think every team has upside-down depth charts for trade bait at this point in the preseason. Hill and Bernard are still worth drafting in round 12 or later, they could hold on to their roles for the first half of the season, but Mixon will take over before long.

Bengals To Use Running Back Tandem On field Together In 2016


The Bengals have suffered a ton of losses on the offensive side of the ball this offseason. WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamad Sanu both left via free agency and ProBowl TE Tyler Eifert may not be ready for the season opener because of injuries. To make up for these losses, Cincinnati Bengals editor Geoff Hobson reports that the Bengals may use more two-back sets involving both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. (CincinnatiBengals.com )

Fantasy Goo: This would be great for the fantasy value of both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill, who are both way too talented to split carries the way that they did last season. Bernard in particular, provides plenty of value in PPR leagues because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. If Eifert misses a significant period of time, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bernard was the second leading receiver in yards and receptions on the Bengals. The loss of Eifert also helps Hill’s value as well. Last year on the goal-line, QB Andy Dalton basically stared down TE Tyler Eifert on route to a league leading 13 TDs. If Eifert is out, those goal-line throws may turn into handoffs for Hill.

Bernard is showing all the flash and ability that made him a coveted player by the Bengals, and with his addition, as well as Tyler Eifert, the Bengals should have a lot more pop in their offense this season.

Bernard was drafted to be the Bengals back of the future, and his pass catching skills were a big reason why they wanted him.

Bernard was already going to be the change of pace from The Law Firm, but now it seems that he is going to see a lot of involvement in the passing game and could have at least 40 catches this season, making him a viable option in PPR leagues.

Jeremy Hill

Cincinnati Bengals

Running back by community for Bengals?


Joe Mixon actually led the Bengals with 8 rushing attempts and 3 passing targets in week 1. Problem is on those 8 carries he gained 9 yards for 1.1 per tote. He had the 2nd most total snaps on offense with 22 (36% of offensive snaps). Meaning when he was on the field, they were going to him half the time.

Giovani Bernard led the team with 29 snaps (48%), maybe because they were down for the entire game and he's their 3rd down back. Gio had the best running play for 23 yards and the longest catch as well with a 39-yard catch and run. Gio looked the best of the lot in Week 1, but was that situational?

Jeremy Hill looked like shit. Only on the field for 10 plays (16%) and didn't do much with his lake of opportunities. Looks like Hill is nothing more than a power game runner that has to score a red zone TD to do anything for your team.

Hill and Bernard are still worth drafting in round 12 or later, they could hold on to their roles for the first half of the season, but Mixon will take over before long.

Bengals To Use Running Back Tandem On field Together In 2016


The Bengals have suffered a ton of losses on the offensive side of the ball this offseason. WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamad Sanu both left via free agency and ProBowl TE Tyler Eifert may not be ready for the season opener because of injuries. To make up for these losses, Cincinnati Bengals editor Geoff Hobson reports that the Bengals may use more two-back sets involving both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. (CincinnatiBengals.com )

Fantasy Goo: This would be great for the fantasy value of both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill, who are both way too talented to split carries the way that they did last season. Bernard in particular, provides plenty of value in PPR leagues because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. If Eifert misses a significant period of time, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bernard was the second leading receiver in yards and receptions on the Bengals. The loss of Eifert also helps Hill’s value as well. Last year on the goal-line, QB Andy Dalton basically stared down TE Tyler Eifert on route to a league leading 13 TDs. If Eifert is out, those goal-line throws may turn into handoffs for Hill.

Jeremy Hill Star vs Dud


For all of the talk that 2015 was a down year for Hill, he still wound up being one of the best fantasy backs in terms of scoring... Just not on a consistent basis. But this is also a good example of how a good fantasy player doesn't always translate into an actual good player.

Fantasy Goo: A sophomore slump or sophomore jinx or sophomore jitters refers to an instance in which a second, or sophomore, effort fails to live up to the standards of the first effort. In 2014, Hill had 1,339 combined yards vs 873 in 2015. Oddly, Hill improved his touchdown numbers from a very nice 9 rookie touchdowns to an even better 12 touchdowns in 2015. I loved Jeremy Hills tape from Tennessee and believe the Bengals are still all-in on Hill for this upcoming season. Fantasy football is about touchdowns for most leagues and Hill could easily put up 10 in 2016. Jeremy Hill should get his 225 touches as well with no real goal line or between the tackles threat on the roster. Do not fear Giovani Bernard.

The extension puts Bernard under contract through the 2019 season.

Fantasy Goo: The Bengals backfield will once again be a timeshare in 2016, with Gio doing dual work as the receiving threat. Jeremy Hill will once again frustrate his owners when Gio steps in if he struggles. Bernard had a 4.7 YPC average last season.

Bengals ink Bernard to 3-year, $15.5M extension


The Cincinnati Bengals singed running back Giovani Bernard to a three-year, $15.5 million contract extension, locking him down through 2019.

Fantasy Goo: Giovani Bernard had a nice season for a backup running back in 2016 with 1,202 and 2 touchdowns. Jeremy Hill owners will want to handcuff Giovani Bernard sometime late in the draft after round 10 or so based on how fast running backs are going in your own draft. Jeremy Hill came out smoking his rookie season but, last year he did not seem to be mentally prepared for the lion’s share of the running duties. Jeremy Hill produced touchdowns but was not dependable especially considering his high draft spot. Gio is one of those guys nobody else will care much about unless they have Jeremy Hill. Gio is a very nice PPR play for a late rounder.

He out-snapped backfield mate Jeremy Hill 50-22, according to PFF's Nate Jahnke, and out-gained Hill 79-20 on just three more touches.

Its obvious that Hill isnt much more than a short yardage goal back, and Bernard is doing all the other work, he is especially a hot commodity in PPR leagues, and should be treated as a number 2 or flex play.

Possibly Out Longer


Its been rumored that Jeremy Hill has been moving up the board in Cincinnati, and has already cut Bernard's playing time in half when he returns.

Bernard's validity as a starter on your fantasy team is now up for debate, at the very worst he makes a good flex option, but see if you can get some high value for him.

Out-According to Paul Dehner


It would of been surprising to see him in the lineup after this short week. He will get more than 2 1/2 weeks of rest now, and should be ready for the following week.

Jeremy Hill can more than handle himself as the feature back and Bernard appeared to be wearing down a bit before his injury. If Gio is inactive, Hill will be a no-brainer RB1.

Gio showing he can handle the goal line


Jeremy Hill may weigh 20 more pounds than Gio, but the rookie has yet to prove it on the big stage. Bernard ran for five touchdowns last season, and with a more run focused offense that number should rise in 2014.

The good news for those who are fans of Gio, like me, is that he will get work in the redzone, and on the goal line. While he is not a true workhorse back, he is also not a back that is pulled inside the five-yard line. He is a determined runner, and should be able to build on his rookie season where he had 1,209 yards from scrimmage with 56 receptions.

Gio is not going to be a 25 touch player this year according to Jay Gruden


Gio is a fantastic back, who has the potential to turn any play into a big gainer. I do also feel what Gruden says is correct. Bernard is not going to be as effective if he is taking the punishment of 20+ carries.

We have seen what happened when the Bills decided to make C.J. Spiller a 20 carry player, and the Bengals should learn from that. Gio is a special talent, and he should be on the field more, but he does need to stay fresh.

This week Bernard is facing the Ravens who are only giving up 11.9 points a game to running backs, which is the best in the league. It would be wise to temper your expectations for him this week, but he can always break one.

Bengals To Use Running Back Tandem On field Together In 2016


The Bengals have suffered a ton of losses on the offensive side of the ball this offseason. WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamad Sanu both left via free agency and ProBowl TE Tyler Eifert may not be ready for the season opener because of injuries. To make up for these losses, Cincinnati Bengals editor Geoff Hobson reports that the Bengals may use more two-back sets involving both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. (CincinnatiBengals.com )

Fantasy Goo: This would be great for the fantasy value of both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill, who are both way too talented to split carries the way that they did last season. Bernard in particular, provides plenty of value in PPR leagues because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. If Eifert misses a significant period of time, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bernard was the second leading receiver in yards and receptions on the Bengals. The loss of Eifert also helps Hill’s value as well. Last year on the goal-line, QB Andy Dalton basically stared down TE Tyler Eifert on route to a league leading 13 TDs. If Eifert is out, those goal-line throws may turn into handoffs for Hill.

Jeremy Hill Star vs Dud


For all of the talk that 2015 was a down year for Hill, he still wound up being one of the best fantasy backs in terms of scoring... Just not on a consistent basis. But this is also a good example of how a good fantasy player doesn't always translate into an actual good player.

Fantasy Goo: A sophomore slump or sophomore jinx or sophomore jitters refers to an instance in which a second, or sophomore, effort fails to live up to the standards of the first effort. In 2014, Hill had 1,339 combined yards vs 873 in 2015. Oddly, Hill improved his touchdown numbers from a very nice 9 rookie touchdowns to an even better 12 touchdowns in 2015. I loved Jeremy Hills tape from Tennessee and believe the Bengals are still all-in on Hill for this upcoming season. Fantasy football is about touchdowns for most leagues and Hill could easily put up 10 in 2016. Jeremy Hill should get his 225 touches as well with no real goal line or between the tackles threat on the roster. Do not fear Giovani Bernard.

Possibly Out Longer


Its been rumored that Jeremy Hill has been moving up the board in Cincinnati, and has already cut Bernard's playing time in half when he returns.

Bernard's validity as a starter on your fantasy team is now up for debate, at the very worst he makes a good flex option, but see if you can get some high value for him.

Out-According to Paul Dehner


It would of been surprising to see him in the lineup after this short week. He will get more than 2 1/2 weeks of rest now, and should be ready for the following week.

Jeremy Hill can more than handle himself as the feature back and Bernard appeared to be wearing down a bit before his injury. If Gio is inactive, Hill will be a no-brainer RB1.

Gio showing he can handle the goal line


Jeremy Hill may weigh 20 more pounds than Gio, but the rookie has yet to prove it on the big stage. Bernard ran for five touchdowns last season, and with a more run focused offense that number should rise in 2014.

The good news for those who are fans of Gio, like me, is that he will get work in the redzone, and on the goal line. While he is not a true workhorse back, he is also not a back that is pulled inside the five-yard line. He is a determined runner, and should be able to build on his rookie season where he had 1,209 yards from scrimmage with 56 receptions.

Gio is not going to be a 25 touch player this year according to Jay Gruden


Gio is a fantastic back, who has the potential to turn any play into a big gainer. I do also feel what Gruden says is correct. Bernard is not going to be as effective if he is taking the punishment of 20+ carries.

We have seen what happened when the Bills decided to make C.J. Spiller a 20 carry player, and the Bengals should learn from that. Gio is a special talent, and he should be on the field more, but he does need to stay fresh.

This week Bernard is facing the Ravens who are only giving up 11.9 points a game to running backs, which is the best in the league. It would be wise to temper your expectations for him this week, but he can always break one.

We have told you for awhile now that Giovani is going to be the real fantasy player for the Bengals, and this game was a prelude of things to come. Bernard was able to show off all the aspects of his game with running and receiving touchdowns. The bigger touchdown may have been the touchdown run against a tough run defense and he showed his determination pushing the ball over the goal line. The Law Firm is in trouble and will eventually give way to the rookie.

Giovani Bernard has been climbing in my tiers since the start of training camp. This game performance is just another feather in this cap and reason to understand that Bernard is going to have much more value this season than The Law Firm.

Bernard is showing all the flash and ability that made him a coveted player by the Bengals, and with his addition, as well as Tyler Eifert, the Bengals should have a lot more pop in their offense this season.

This is a decent showing for Bernard in his first NFL action. He was not able to break a big run, but being able to score in a goal line formation is encouraging. Bernard was able to be more effective in the passing game with his 3 catches, and that is where he should make a bigger impact in his rookie season.

Bernard is still trying to take the starting job from Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis and now has 3 more games to make a bigger impression.

Bernard was drafted to be the Bengals back of the future, and his pass catching skills were a big reason why they wanted him. Bernard had 92 receptions for 852 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2 years at North Carolina. Bernard was already going to be the change of pace from The Law Firm, but now it seems that he is going to see a lot of involvement in the passing game and could have at least 40 catches this season, making him a viable option in PPR leagues.

Running back by community for Bengals?


Joe Mixon actually led the Bengals with 8 rushing attempts and 3 passing targets in week 1. Problem is on those 8 carries he gained 9 yards for 1.1 per tote. He had the 2nd most total snaps on offense with 22 (36% of offensive snaps). Meaning when he was on the field, they were going to him half the time.

Giovani Bernard led the team with 29 snaps (48%), maybe because they were down for the entire game and he's their 3rd down back. Gio had the best running play for 23 yards and the longest catch as well with a 39-yard catch and run. Gio looked the best of the lot in Week 1, but was that situational?

Jeremy Hill looked like shit. Only on the field for 10 plays (16%) and didn't do much with his lake of opportunities. Looks like Hill is nothing more than a power game runner that has to score a red zone TD to do anything for your team.

Fantasy Goo:It won’t be long before Hill and Mixon get flipped on this list. I think every team has upside-down depth charts for trade bait at this point in the preseason. Hill and Bernard are still worth drafting in round 12 or later, they could hold on to their roles for the first half of the season, but Mixon will take over before long.

Gio showing he can handle the goal line


Jeremy Hill may weigh 20 more pounds than Gio, but the rookie has yet to prove it on the big stage. Bernard ran for five touchdowns last season, and with a more run focused offense that number should rise in 2014.

The good news for those who are fans of Gio, like me, is that he will get work in the redzone, and on the goal line. While he is not a true workhorse back, he is also not a back that is pulled inside the five-yard line. He is a determined runner, and should be able to build on his rookie season where he had 1,209 yards from scrimmage with 56 receptions.

Gio is not going to be a 25 touch player this year according to Jay Gruden


Gio is a fantastic back, who has the potential to turn any play into a big gainer. I do also feel what Gruden says is correct. Bernard is not going to be as effective if he is taking the punishment of 20+ carries.

We have seen what happened when the Bills decided to make C.J. Spiller a 20 carry player, and the Bengals should learn from that. Gio is a special talent, and he should be on the field more, but he does need to stay fresh.

This week Bernard is facing the Ravens who are only giving up 11.9 points a game to running backs, which is the best in the league. It would be wise to temper your expectations for him this week, but he can always break one.

He had the 2nd most total snaps on offense with 22 (36% of offensive snaps). Meaning when he was on the field, they were going to him half the time.

Giovani Bernard led the team with 29 snaps (48%), maybe because they were down for the entire game and he's their 3rd down back.

Jeremy Hill looked like shit. Only on the field for 10 plays (16%) and didn't do much with his lake of opportunities. Looks like Hill is nothing more than a power game runner that has to score a red zone TD to do anything for your team.

With the first preseason game on Friday, the Bengals released their 1st depth chart of 2017. In a surprise to some they have Hill as the RB1, Bernard as the RB2, and Mixon among the RB3’s.

Fantasy Goo:It won’t be long before Hill and Mixon get flipped on this list. I think every team has upside-down depth charts for trade bait at this point in the preseason. Hill and Bernard are still worth drafting in round 12 or later, they could hold on to their roles for the first half of the season, but Mixon will take over before long.

Bengals To Use Running Back Tandem On field Together In 2016


The Bengals have suffered a ton of losses on the offensive side of the ball this offseason. WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamad Sanu both left via free agency and ProBowl TE Tyler Eifert may not be ready for the season opener because of injuries. To make up for these losses, Cincinnati Bengals editor Geoff Hobson reports that the Bengals may use more two-back sets involving both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. (CincinnatiBengals.com )

Fantasy Goo: This would be great for the fantasy value of both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill, who are both way too talented to split carries the way that they did last season. Bernard in particular, provides plenty of value in PPR leagues because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. If Eifert misses a significant period of time, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bernard was the second leading receiver in yards and receptions on the Bengals. The loss of Eifert also helps Hill’s value as well. Last year on the goal-line, QB Andy Dalton basically stared down TE Tyler Eifert on route to a league leading 13 TDs. If Eifert is out, those goal-line throws may turn into handoffs for Hill.

Jeremy Hill Star vs Dud


For all of the talk that 2015 was a down year for Hill, he still wound up being one of the best fantasy backs in terms of scoring... Just not on a consistent basis. But this is also a good example of how a good fantasy player doesn't always translate into an actual good player.

Fantasy Goo: A sophomore slump or sophomore jinx or sophomore jitters refers to an instance in which a second, or sophomore, effort fails to live up to the standards of the first effort. In 2014, Hill had 1,339 combined yards vs 873 in 2015. Oddly, Hill improved his touchdown numbers from a very nice 9 rookie touchdowns to an even better 12 touchdowns in 2015. I loved Jeremy Hills tape from Tennessee and believe the Bengals are still all-in on Hill for this upcoming season. Fantasy football is about touchdowns for most leagues and Hill could easily put up 10 in 2016. Jeremy Hill should get his 225 touches as well with no real goal line or between the tackles threat on the roster. Do not fear Giovani Bernard.

He had the 2nd most total snaps on offense with 22 (36% of offensive snaps). Meaning when he was on the field, they were going to him half the time.

Giovani Bernard led the team with 29 snaps (48%), maybe because they were down for the entire game and he's their 3rd down back. Gio had the best running play for 23 yards and the longest catch as well with a 39-yard catch and run. Gio looked the best of the lot in Week 1, but was that situational?

Jeremy Hill looked like shit. Only on the field for 10 plays (16%) and didn't do much with his lake of opportunities. Looks like Hill is nothing more than a power game runner that has to score a red zone TD to do anything for your team.

Joe Mixon

Cincinnati Bengals

Hill 1, Gio 2, Mixon 3, For Now


With the first preseason game on Friday, the Bengals released their 1st depth chart of 2017. In a surprise to some they have Hill as the RB1, Bernard as the RB2, and Mixon among the RB3’s.

Fantasy Goo:It won’t be long before Hill and Mixon get flipped on this list. I think every team has upside-down depth charts for trade bait at this point in the preseason. Hill and Bernard are still worth drafting in round 12 or later, they could hold on to their roles for the first half of the season, but Mixon will take over before long.

Bengals To Use Running Back Tandem On field Together In 2016


The Bengals have suffered a ton of losses on the offensive side of the ball this offseason. WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamad Sanu both left via free agency and ProBowl TE Tyler Eifert may not be ready for the season opener because of injuries. To make up for these losses, Cincinnati Bengals editor Geoff Hobson reports that the Bengals may use more two-back sets involving both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. (CincinnatiBengals.com )

Fantasy Goo: This would be great for the fantasy value of both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill, who are both way too talented to split carries the way that they did last season. Bernard in particular, provides plenty of value in PPR leagues because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. If Eifert misses a significant period of time, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bernard was the second leading receiver in yards and receptions on the Bengals. The loss of Eifert also helps Hill’s value as well. Last year on the goal-line, QB Andy Dalton basically stared down TE Tyler Eifert on route to a league leading 13 TDs. If Eifert is out, those goal-line throws may turn into handoffs for Hill.

Jeremy Hill Star vs Dud


For all of the talk that 2015 was a down year for Hill, he still wound up being one of the best fantasy backs in terms of scoring... Just not on a consistent basis. But this is also a good example of how a good fantasy player doesn't always translate into an actual good player.

Fantasy Goo: A sophomore slump or sophomore jinx or sophomore jitters refers to an instance in which a second, or sophomore, effort fails to live up to the standards of the first effort. In 2014, Hill had 1,339 combined yards vs 873 in 2015. Oddly, Hill improved his touchdown numbers from a very nice 9 rookie touchdowns to an even better 12 touchdowns in 2015. I loved Jeremy Hills tape from Tennessee and believe the Bengals are still all-in on Hill for this upcoming season. Fantasy football is about touchdowns for most leagues and Hill could easily put up 10 in 2016. Jeremy Hill should get his 225 touches as well with no real goal line or between the tackles threat on the roster. Do not fear Giovani Bernard.

Gio gets 3-year Extension


The extension puts Bernard under contract through the 2019 season.

"It's great to be able to extend our commitment with Gio," coach Marvin Lewis said in a statement. "It's all a part of what I keep saying -- draft the right players, develop them and retain them. We're excited about the great things Gio will continue to add to our offense."

Fantasy Goo: The Bengals backfield will once again be a timeshare in 2016, with Gio doing dual work as the receiving threat. Jeremy Hill will once again frustrate his owners when Gio steps in if he struggles. Bernard had a 4.7 YPC average last season.

Bengals ink Bernard to 3-year, $15.5M extension


The Cincinnati Bengals singed running back Giovani Bernard to a three-year, $15.5 million contract extension, locking him down through 2019.

Fantasy Goo: Giovani Bernard had a nice season for a backup running back in 2016 with 1,202 and 2 touchdowns. Jeremy Hill owners will want to handcuff Giovani Bernard sometime late in the draft after round 10 or so based on how fast running backs are going in your own draft. Jeremy Hill came out smoking his rookie season but, last year he did not seem to be mentally prepared for the lion’s share of the running duties. Jeremy Hill produced touchdowns but was not dependable especially considering his high draft spot. Gio is one of those guys nobody else will care much about unless they have Jeremy Hill. Gio is a very nice PPR play for a late rounder.

Giovani Bernard rushed eight times for 36 yards and caught 5-of-8 targets for 43 yards


He out-snapped backfield mate Jeremy Hill 50-22, according to PFF's Nate Jahnke, and out-gained Hill 79-20 on just three more touches.

Its obvious that Hill isnt much more than a short yardage goal back, and Bernard is doing all the other work, he is especially a hot commodity in PPR leagues, and should be treated as a number 2 or flex play.

If you have Jeremy Hill continue to put him in your lineup. He wont be the PPR player that Gio is, but is still valuable around the goal line, and will grab one or two receptions for your team.

Possibly Out Longer


Its been rumored that Jeremy Hill has been moving up the board in Cincinnati, and has already cut Bernard's playing time in half when he returns.

Bernard's validity as a starter on your fantasy team is now up for debate, at the very worst he makes a good flex option, but see if you can get some high value for him.

Out-According to Paul Dehner


It would of been surprising to see him in the lineup after this short week. He will get more than 2 1/2 weeks of rest now, and should be ready for the following week.

Jeremy Hill can more than handle himself as the feature back and Bernard appeared to be wearing down a bit before his injury. If Gio is inactive, Hill will be a no-brainer RB1.

Gio showing he can handle the goal line


Jeremy Hill may weigh 20 more pounds than Gio, but the rookie has yet to prove it on the big stage. Bernard ran for five touchdowns last season, and with a more run focused offense that number should rise in 2014.

The good news for those who are fans of Gio, like me, is that he will get work in the redzone, and on the goal line. While he is not a true workhorse back, he is also not a back that is pulled inside the five-yard line. He is a determined runner, and should be able to build on his rookie season where he had 1,209 yards from scrimmage with 56 receptions.

Gio is not going to be a 25 touch player this year according to Jay Gruden


Gio is a fantastic back, who has the potential to turn any play into a big gainer. I do also feel what Gruden says is correct. Bernard is not going to be as effective if he is taking the punishment of 20+ carries.

We have seen what happened when the Bills decided to make C.J. Spiller a 20 carry player, and the Bengals should learn from that. Gio is a special talent, and he should be on the field more, but he does need to stay fresh.

This week Bernard is facing the Ravens who are only giving up 11.9 points a game to running backs, which is the best in the league. It would be wise to temper your expectations for him this week, but he can always break one.

We hope you have this guy on your team, because we were all over this before the season started. Gio is by far the most talented back for the Bengals, and has shown the ability to do it all.

We have told you for awhile now that Giovani is going to be the real fantasy player for the Bengals, and this game was a prelude of things to come. Bernard was able to show off all the aspects of his game with running and receiving touchdowns. The bigger touchdown may have been the touchdown run against a tough run defense and he showed his determination pushing the ball over the goal line. The Law Firm is in trouble and will eventually give way to the rookie.

Giovani Bernard has been climbing in my tiers since the start of training camp. This game performance is just another feather in this cap and reason to understand that Bernard is going to have much more value this season than The Law Firm.

Bernard is showing all the flash and ability that made him a coveted player by the Bengals, and with his addition, as well as Tyler Eifert, the Bengals should have a lot more pop in their offense this season.

This is a decent showing for Bernard in his first NFL action. He was not able to break a big run, but being able to score in a goal line formation is encouraging. Bernard was able to be more effective in the passing game with his 3 catches, and that is where he should make a bigger impact in his rookie season.

Bernard is still trying to take the starting job from Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis and now has 3 more games to make a bigger impression.

Bernard was drafted to be the Bengals back of the future, and his pass catching skills were a big reason why they wanted him. Bernard had 92 receptions for 852 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2 years at North Carolina. Bernard was already going to be the change of pace from The Law Firm, but now it seems that he is going to see a lot of involvement in the passing game and could have at least 40 catches this season, making him a viable option in PPR leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals

Jeremy Hill Star vs Dud


For all of the talk that 2015 was a down year for Hill, he still wound up being one of the best fantasy backs in terms of scoring... Just not on a consistent basis. But this is also a good example of how a good fantasy player doesn't always translate into an actual good player.

Fantasy Goo: A sophomore slump or sophomore jinx or sophomore jitters refers to an instance in which a second, or sophomore, effort fails to live up to the standards of the first effort. In 2014, Hill had 1,339 combined yards vs 873 in 2015. Oddly, Hill improved his touchdown numbers from a very nice 9 rookie touchdowns to an even better 12 touchdowns in 2015. I loved Jeremy Hills tape from Tennessee and believe the Bengals are still all-in on Hill for this upcoming season.

Gio gets 3-year Extension


The extension puts Bernard under contract through the 2019 season.

"It's great to be able to extend our commitment with Gio," coach Marvin Lewis said in a statement. "It's all a part of what I keep saying -- draft the right players, develop them and retain them. We're excited about the great things Gio will continue to add to our offense."

Fantasy Goo: The Bengals backfield will once again be a timeshare in 2016, with Gio doing dual work as the receiving threat. Jeremy Hill will once again frustrate his owners when Gio steps in if he struggles. Bernard had a 4.7 YPC average last season.

Bengals ink Bernard to 3-year, $15.5M extension


The Cincinnati Bengals singed running back Giovani Bernard to a three-year, $15.5 million contract extension, locking him down through 2019.

Fantasy Goo: Giovani Bernard had a nice season for a backup running back in 2016 with 1,202 and 2 touchdowns. Jeremy Hill owners will want to handcuff Giovani Bernard sometime late in the draft after round 10 or so based on how fast running backs are going in your own draft. Jeremy Hill came out smoking his rookie season but, last year he did not seem to be mentally prepared for the lion’s share of the running duties. Jeremy Hill produced touchdowns but was not dependable especially considering his high draft spot. Gio is one of those guys nobody else will care much about unless they have Jeremy Hill. Gio is a very nice PPR play for a late rounder.

Jeremy Hill may weigh 20 more pounds than Gio, but the rookie has yet to prove it on the big stage. Bernard ran for five touchdowns last season, and with a more run focused offense that number should rise in 2014.

The good news for those who are fans of Gio, like me, is that he will get work in the redzone, and on the goal line. While he is not a true workhorse back, he is also not a back that is pulled inside the five-yard line. He is a determined runner, and should be able to build on his rookie season where he had 1,209 yards from scrimmage with 56 receptions.

Gio is not going to be a 25 touch player this year according to Jay Gruden


Gio is a fantastic back, who has the potential to turn any play into a big gainer. I do also feel what Gruden says is correct. Bernard is not going to be as effective if he is taking the punishment of 20+ carries.

We have seen what happened when the Bills decided to make C.J. Spiller a 20 carry player, and the Bengals should learn from that. Gio is a special talent, and he should be on the field more, but he does need to stay fresh.

This week Bernard is facing the Ravens who are only giving up 11.9 points a game to running backs, which is the best in the league. It would be wise to temper your expectations for him this week, but he can always break one.

Giovani Bernard has been climbing in my tiers since the start of training camp. This game performance is just another feather in this cap and reason to understand that Bernard is going to have much more value this season than The Law Firm.

Bernard is showing all the flash and ability that made him a coveted player by the Bengals, and with his addition, as well as Tyler Eifert, the Bengals should have a lot more pop in their offense this season.

This is a decent showing for Bernard in his first NFL action. He was not able to break a big run, but being able to score in a goal line formation is encouraging. Bernard was able to be more effective in the passing game with his 3 catches, and that is where he should make a bigger impact in his rookie season.

Bernard is still trying to take the starting job from Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis and now has 3 more games to make a bigger impression.

Bernard was drafted to be the Bengals back of the future, and his pass catching skills were a big reason why they wanted him. Bernard had 92 receptions for 852 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2 years at North Carolina. Bernard was already going to be the change of pace from The Law Firm, but now it seems that he is going to see a lot of involvement in the passing game and could have at least 40 catches this season, making him a viable option in PPR leagues.

Running back by community for Bengals?


Joe Mixon actually led the Bengals with 8 rushing attempts and 3 passing targets in week 1. Problem is on those 8 carries he gained 9 yards for 1.1 per tote. He had the 2nd most total snaps on offense with 22 (36% of offensive snaps). Meaning when he was on the field, they were going to him half the time.

Giovani Bernard led the team with 29 snaps (48%), maybe because they were down for the entire game and he's their 3rd down back. Gio had the best running play for 23 yards and the longest catch as well with a 39-yard catch and run. Gio looked the best of the lot in Week 1, but was that situational?

Jeremy Hill looked like shit. Only on the field for 10 plays (16%) and didn't do much with his lake of opportunities. Looks like Hill is nothing more than a power game runner that has to score a red zone TD to do anything for your team.

With the first preseason game on Friday, the Bengals released their 1st depth chart of 2017. In a surprise to some they have Hill as the RB1, Bernard as the RB2, and Mixon among the RB3’s.

Fantasy Goo:It won’t be long before Hill and Mixon get flipped on this list. I think every team has upside-down depth charts for trade bait at this point in the preseason. Hill and Bernard are still worth drafting in round 12 or later, they could hold on to their roles for the first half of the season, but Mixon will take over before long.

Bengals To Use Running Back Tandem On field Together In 2016


The Bengals have suffered a ton of losses on the offensive side of the ball this offseason. WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamad Sanu both left via free agency and ProBowl TE Tyler Eifert may not be ready for the season opener because of injuries. To make up for these losses, Cincinnati Bengals editor Geoff Hobson reports that the Bengals may use more two-back sets involving both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. (CincinnatiBengals.com )

Fantasy Goo: This would be great for the fantasy value of both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill, who are both way too talented to split carries the way that they did last season. Bernard in particular, provides plenty of value in PPR leagues because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. If Eifert misses a significant period of time, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bernard was the second leading receiver in yards and receptions on the Bengals. The loss of Eifert also helps Hill’s value as well. Last year on the goal-line, QB Andy Dalton basically stared down TE Tyler Eifert on route to a league leading 13 TDs. If Eifert is out, those goal-line throws may turn into handoffs for Hill.

Bernard is showing all the flash and ability that made him a coveted player by the Bengals, and with his addition, as well as Tyler Eifert, the Bengals should have a lot more pop in their offense this season.

Bernard was drafted to be the Bengals back of the future, and his pass catching skills were a big reason why they wanted him.

Bernard was already going to be the change of pace from The Law Firm, but now it seems that he is going to see a lot of involvement in the passing game and could have at least 40 catches this season, making him a viable option in PPR leagues.

Jeremy Hill

Cincinnati Bengals

Running back by community for Bengals?


Joe Mixon actually led the Bengals with 8 rushing attempts and 3 passing targets in week 1. Problem is on those 8 carries he gained 9 yards for 1.1 per tote. He had the 2nd most total snaps on offense with 22 (36% of offensive snaps). Meaning when he was on the field, they were going to him half the time.

Giovani Bernard led the team with 29 snaps (48%), maybe because they were down for the entire game and he's their 3rd down back. Gio had the best running play for 23 yards and the longest catch as well with a 39-yard catch and run. Gio looked the best of the lot in Week 1, but was that situational?

Jeremy Hill looked like shit. Only on the field for 10 plays (16%) and didn't do much with his lake of opportunities. Looks like Hill is nothing more than a power game runner that has to score a red zone TD to do anything for your team.

Hill and Bernard are still worth drafting in round 12 or later, they could hold on to their roles for the first half of the season, but Mixon will take over before long.

Bengals To Use Running Back Tandem On field Together In 2016


The Bengals have suffered a ton of losses on the offensive side of the ball this offseason. WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamad Sanu both left via free agency and ProBowl TE Tyler Eifert may not be ready for the season opener because of injuries. To make up for these losses, Cincinnati Bengals editor Geoff Hobson reports that the Bengals may use more two-back sets involving both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. (CincinnatiBengals.com )

Fantasy Goo: This would be great for the fantasy value of both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill, who are both way too talented to split carries the way that they did last season. Bernard in particular, provides plenty of value in PPR leagues because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. If Eifert misses a significant period of time, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bernard was the second leading receiver in yards and receptions on the Bengals. The loss of Eifert also helps Hill’s value as well. Last year on the goal-line, QB Andy Dalton basically stared down TE Tyler Eifert on route to a league leading 13 TDs. If Eifert is out, those goal-line throws may turn into handoffs for Hill.

Jeremy Hill Star vs Dud


For all of the talk that 2015 was a down year for Hill, he still wound up being one of the best fantasy backs in terms of scoring... Just not on a consistent basis. But this is also a good example of how a good fantasy player doesn't always translate into an actual good player.

Fantasy Goo: A sophomore slump or sophomore jinx or sophomore jitters refers to an instance in which a second, or sophomore, effort fails to live up to the standards of the first effort. In 2014, Hill had 1,339 combined yards vs 873 in 2015. Oddly, Hill improved his touchdown numbers from a very nice 9 rookie touchdowns to an even better 12 touchdowns in 2015. I loved Jeremy Hills tape from Tennessee and believe the Bengals are still all-in on Hill for this upcoming season. Fantasy football is about touchdowns for most leagues and Hill could easily put up 10 in 2016. Jeremy Hill should get his 225 touches as well with no real goal line or between the tackles threat on the roster. Do not fear Giovani Bernard.

The extension puts Bernard under contract through the 2019 season.

Fantasy Goo: The Bengals backfield will once again be a timeshare in 2016, with Gio doing dual work as the receiving threat. Jeremy Hill will once again frustrate his owners when Gio steps in if he struggles. Bernard had a 4.7 YPC average last season.

Bengals ink Bernard to 3-year, $15.5M extension


The Cincinnati Bengals singed running back Giovani Bernard to a three-year, $15.5 million contract extension, locking him down through 2019.

Fantasy Goo: Giovani Bernard had a nice season for a backup running back in 2016 with 1,202 and 2 touchdowns. Jeremy Hill owners will want to handcuff Giovani Bernard sometime late in the draft after round 10 or so based on how fast running backs are going in your own draft. Jeremy Hill came out smoking his rookie season but, last year he did not seem to be mentally prepared for the lion’s share of the running duties. Jeremy Hill produced touchdowns but was not dependable especially considering his high draft spot. Gio is one of those guys nobody else will care much about unless they have Jeremy Hill. Gio is a very nice PPR play for a late rounder.

He out-snapped backfield mate Jeremy Hill 50-22, according to PFF's Nate Jahnke, and out-gained Hill 79-20 on just three more touches.

Its obvious that Hill isnt much more than a short yardage goal back, and Bernard is doing all the other work, he is especially a hot commodity in PPR leagues, and should be treated as a number 2 or flex play.

Possibly Out Longer


Its been rumored that Jeremy Hill has been moving up the board in Cincinnati, and has already cut Bernard's playing time in half when he returns.

Bernard's validity as a starter on your fantasy team is now up for debate, at the very worst he makes a good flex option, but see if you can get some high value for him.

Out-According to Paul Dehner


It would of been surprising to see him in the lineup after this short week. He will get more than 2 1/2 weeks of rest now, and should be ready for the following week.

Jeremy Hill can more than handle himself as the feature back and Bernard appeared to be wearing down a bit before his injury. If Gio is inactive, Hill will be a no-brainer RB1.

Gio showing he can handle the goal line


Jeremy Hill may weigh 20 more pounds than Gio, but the rookie has yet to prove it on the big stage. Bernard ran for five touchdowns last season, and with a more run focused offense that number should rise in 2014.

The good news for those who are fans of Gio, like me, is that he will get work in the redzone, and on the goal line. While he is not a true workhorse back, he is also not a back that is pulled inside the five-yard line. He is a determined runner, and should be able to build on his rookie season where he had 1,209 yards from scrimmage with 56 receptions.

Gio is not going to be a 25 touch player this year according to Jay Gruden


Gio is a fantastic back, who has the potential to turn any play into a big gainer. I do also feel what Gruden says is correct. Bernard is not going to be as effective if he is taking the punishment of 20+ carries.

We have seen what happened when the Bills decided to make C.J. Spiller a 20 carry player, and the Bengals should learn from that. Gio is a special talent, and he should be on the field more, but he does need to stay fresh.

This week Bernard is facing the Ravens who are only giving up 11.9 points a game to running backs, which is the best in the league. It would be wise to temper your expectations for him this week, but he can always break one.

Bengals To Use Running Back Tandem On field Together In 2016


The Bengals have suffered a ton of losses on the offensive side of the ball this offseason. WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamad Sanu both left via free agency and ProBowl TE Tyler Eifert may not be ready for the season opener because of injuries. To make up for these losses, Cincinnati Bengals editor Geoff Hobson reports that the Bengals may use more two-back sets involving both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. (CincinnatiBengals.com )

Fantasy Goo: This would be great for the fantasy value of both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill, who are both way too talented to split carries the way that they did last season. Bernard in particular, provides plenty of value in PPR leagues because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. If Eifert misses a significant period of time, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bernard was the second leading receiver in yards and receptions on the Bengals. The loss of Eifert also helps Hill’s value as well. Last year on the goal-line, QB Andy Dalton basically stared down TE Tyler Eifert on route to a league leading 13 TDs. If Eifert is out, those goal-line throws may turn into handoffs for Hill.

Jeremy Hill Star vs Dud


For all of the talk that 2015 was a down year for Hill, he still wound up being one of the best fantasy backs in terms of scoring... Just not on a consistent basis. But this is also a good example of how a good fantasy player doesn't always translate into an actual good player.

Fantasy Goo: A sophomore slump or sophomore jinx or sophomore jitters refers to an instance in which a second, or sophomore, effort fails to live up to the standards of the first effort. In 2014, Hill had 1,339 combined yards vs 873 in 2015. Oddly, Hill improved his touchdown numbers from a very nice 9 rookie touchdowns to an even better 12 touchdowns in 2015. I loved Jeremy Hills tape from Tennessee and believe the Bengals are still all-in on Hill for this upcoming season. Fantasy football is about touchdowns for most leagues and Hill could easily put up 10 in 2016. Jeremy Hill should get his 225 touches as well with no real goal line or between the tackles threat on the roster. Do not fear Giovani Bernard.

Possibly Out Longer


Its been rumored that Jeremy Hill has been moving up the board in Cincinnati, and has already cut Bernard's playing time in half when he returns.

Bernard's validity as a starter on your fantasy team is now up for debate, at the very worst he makes a good flex option, but see if you can get some high value for him.

Out-According to Paul Dehner


It would of been surprising to see him in the lineup after this short week. He will get more than 2 1/2 weeks of rest now, and should be ready for the following week.

Jeremy Hill can more than handle himself as the feature back and Bernard appeared to be wearing down a bit before his injury. If Gio is inactive, Hill will be a no-brainer RB1.

Gio showing he can handle the goal line


Jeremy Hill may weigh 20 more pounds than Gio, but the rookie has yet to prove it on the big stage. Bernard ran for five touchdowns last season, and with a more run focused offense that number should rise in 2014.

The good news for those who are fans of Gio, like me, is that he will get work in the redzone, and on the goal line. While he is not a true workhorse back, he is also not a back that is pulled inside the five-yard line. He is a determined runner, and should be able to build on his rookie season where he had 1,209 yards from scrimmage with 56 receptions.

Gio is not going to be a 25 touch player this year according to Jay Gruden


Gio is a fantastic back, who has the potential to turn any play into a big gainer. I do also feel what Gruden says is correct. Bernard is not going to be as effective if he is taking the punishment of 20+ carries.

We have seen what happened when the Bills decided to make C.J. Spiller a 20 carry player, and the Bengals should learn from that. Gio is a special talent, and he should be on the field more, but he does need to stay fresh.

This week Bernard is facing the Ravens who are only giving up 11.9 points a game to running backs, which is the best in the league. It would be wise to temper your expectations for him this week, but he can always break one.

We have told you for awhile now that Giovani is going to be the real fantasy player for the Bengals, and this game was a prelude of things to come. Bernard was able to show off all the aspects of his game with running and receiving touchdowns. The bigger touchdown may have been the touchdown run against a tough run defense and he showed his determination pushing the ball over the goal line. The Law Firm is in trouble and will eventually give way to the rookie.

Giovani Bernard has been climbing in my tiers since the start of training camp. This game performance is just another feather in this cap and reason to understand that Bernard is going to have much more value this season than The Law Firm.

Bernard is showing all the flash and ability that made him a coveted player by the Bengals, and with his addition, as well as Tyler Eifert, the Bengals should have a lot more pop in their offense this season.

This is a decent showing for Bernard in his first NFL action. He was not able to break a big run, but being able to score in a goal line formation is encouraging. Bernard was able to be more effective in the passing game with his 3 catches, and that is where he should make a bigger impact in his rookie season.

Bernard is still trying to take the starting job from Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis and now has 3 more games to make a bigger impression.

Bernard was drafted to be the Bengals back of the future, and his pass catching skills were a big reason why they wanted him. Bernard had 92 receptions for 852 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2 years at North Carolina. Bernard was already going to be the change of pace from The Law Firm, but now it seems that he is going to see a lot of involvement in the passing game and could have at least 40 catches this season, making him a viable option in PPR leagues.

Running back by community for Bengals?


Joe Mixon actually led the Bengals with 8 rushing attempts and 3 passing targets in week 1. Problem is on those 8 carries he gained 9 yards for 1.1 per tote. He had the 2nd most total snaps on offense with 22 (36% of offensive snaps). Meaning when he was on the field, they were going to him half the time.

Giovani Bernard led the team with 29 snaps (48%), maybe because they were down for the entire game and he's their 3rd down back. Gio had the best running play for 23 yards and the longest catch as well with a 39-yard catch and run. Gio looked the best of the lot in Week 1, but was that situational?

Jeremy Hill looked like shit. Only on the field for 10 plays (16%) and didn't do much with his lake of opportunities. Looks like Hill is nothing more than a power game runner that has to score a red zone TD to do anything for your team.

Fantasy Goo:It won’t be long before Hill and Mixon get flipped on this list. I think every team has upside-down depth charts for trade bait at this point in the preseason. Hill and Bernard are still worth drafting in round 12 or later, they could hold on to their roles for the first half of the season, but Mixon will take over before long.

Gio showing he can handle the goal line


Jeremy Hill may weigh 20 more pounds than Gio, but the rookie has yet to prove it on the big stage. Bernard ran for five touchdowns last season, and with a more run focused offense that number should rise in 2014.

The good news for those who are fans of Gio, like me, is that he will get work in the redzone, and on the goal line. While he is not a true workhorse back, he is also not a back that is pulled inside the five-yard line. He is a determined runner, and should be able to build on his rookie season where he had 1,209 yards from scrimmage with 56 receptions.

Gio is not going to be a 25 touch player this year according to Jay Gruden


Gio is a fantastic back, who has the potential to turn any play into a big gainer. I do also feel what Gruden says is correct. Bernard is not going to be as effective if he is taking the punishment of 20+ carries.

We have seen what happened when the Bills decided to make C.J. Spiller a 20 carry player, and the Bengals should learn from that. Gio is a special talent, and he should be on the field more, but he does need to stay fresh.

This week Bernard is facing the Ravens who are only giving up 11.9 points a game to running backs, which is the best in the league. It would be wise to temper your expectations for him this week, but he can always break one.

He had the 2nd most total snaps on offense with 22 (36% of offensive snaps). Meaning when he was on the field, they were going to him half the time.

Giovani Bernard led the team with 29 snaps (48%), maybe because they were down for the entire game and he's their 3rd down back.

Jeremy Hill looked like shit. Only on the field for 10 plays (16%) and didn't do much with his lake of opportunities. Looks like Hill is nothing more than a power game runner that has to score a red zone TD to do anything for your team.

With the first preseason game on Friday, the Bengals released their 1st depth chart of 2017. In a surprise to some they have Hill as the RB1, Bernard as the RB2, and Mixon among the RB3’s.

Fantasy Goo:It won’t be long before Hill and Mixon get flipped on this list. I think every team has upside-down depth charts for trade bait at this point in the preseason. Hill and Bernard are still worth drafting in round 12 or later, they could hold on to their roles for the first half of the season, but Mixon will take over before long.

Bengals To Use Running Back Tandem On field Together In 2016


The Bengals have suffered a ton of losses on the offensive side of the ball this offseason. WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamad Sanu both left via free agency and ProBowl TE Tyler Eifert may not be ready for the season opener because of injuries. To make up for these losses, Cincinnati Bengals editor Geoff Hobson reports that the Bengals may use more two-back sets involving both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. (CincinnatiBengals.com )

Fantasy Goo: This would be great for the fantasy value of both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill, who are both way too talented to split carries the way that they did last season. Bernard in particular, provides plenty of value in PPR leagues because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. If Eifert misses a significant period of time, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bernard was the second leading receiver in yards and receptions on the Bengals. The loss of Eifert also helps Hill’s value as well. Last year on the goal-line, QB Andy Dalton basically stared down TE Tyler Eifert on route to a league leading 13 TDs. If Eifert is out, those goal-line throws may turn into handoffs for Hill.

Jeremy Hill Star vs Dud


For all of the talk that 2015 was a down year for Hill, he still wound up being one of the best fantasy backs in terms of scoring... Just not on a consistent basis. But this is also a good example of how a good fantasy player doesn't always translate into an actual good player.

Fantasy Goo: A sophomore slump or sophomore jinx or sophomore jitters refers to an instance in which a second, or sophomore, effort fails to live up to the standards of the first effort. In 2014, Hill had 1,339 combined yards vs 873 in 2015. Oddly, Hill improved his touchdown numbers from a very nice 9 rookie touchdowns to an even better 12 touchdowns in 2015. I loved Jeremy Hills tape from Tennessee and believe the Bengals are still all-in on Hill for this upcoming season. Fantasy football is about touchdowns for most leagues and Hill could easily put up 10 in 2016. Jeremy Hill should get his 225 touches as well with no real goal line or between the tackles threat on the roster. Do not fear Giovani Bernard.

He had the 2nd most total snaps on offense with 22 (36% of offensive snaps). Meaning when he was on the field, they were going to him half the time.

Giovani Bernard led the team with 29 snaps (48%), maybe because they were down for the entire game and he's their 3rd down back. Gio had the best running play for 23 yards and the longest catch as well with a 39-yard catch and run. Gio looked the best of the lot in Week 1, but was that situational?

Jeremy Hill looked like shit. Only on the field for 10 plays (16%) and didn't do much with his lake of opportunities. Looks like Hill is nothing more than a power game runner that has to score a red zone TD to do anything for your team.

Joe Mixon

Cincinnati Bengals

Hill 1, Gio 2, Mixon 3, For Now


With the first preseason game on Friday, the Bengals released their 1st depth chart of 2017. In a surprise to some they have Hill as the RB1, Bernard as the RB2, and Mixon among the RB3’s.

Fantasy Goo:It won’t be long before Hill and Mixon get flipped on this list. I think every team has upside-down depth charts for trade bait at this point in the preseason. Hill and Bernard are still worth drafting in round 12 or later, they could hold on to their roles for the first half of the season, but Mixon will take over before long.

Bengals To Use Running Back Tandem On field Together In 2016


The Bengals have suffered a ton of losses on the offensive side of the ball this offseason. WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamad Sanu both left via free agency and ProBowl TE Tyler Eifert may not be ready for the season opener because of injuries. To make up for these losses, Cincinnati Bengals editor Geoff Hobson reports that the Bengals may use more two-back sets involving both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. (CincinnatiBengals.com )

Fantasy Goo: This would be great for the fantasy value of both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill, who are both way too talented to split carries the way that they did last season. Bernard in particular, provides plenty of value in PPR leagues because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. If Eifert misses a significant period of time, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bernard was the second leading receiver in yards and receptions on the Bengals. The loss of Eifert also helps Hill’s value as well. Last year on the goal-line, QB Andy Dalton basically stared down TE Tyler Eifert on route to a league leading 13 TDs. If Eifert is out, those goal-line throws may turn into handoffs for Hill.

Jeremy Hill Star vs Dud


For all of the talk that 2015 was a down year for Hill, he still wound up being one of the best fantasy backs in terms of scoring... Just not on a consistent basis. But this is also a good example of how a good fantasy player doesn't always translate into an actual good player.

Fantasy Goo: A sophomore slump or sophomore jinx or sophomore jitters refers to an instance in which a second, or sophomore, effort fails to live up to the standards of the first effort. In 2014, Hill had 1,339 combined yards vs 873 in 2015. Oddly, Hill improved his touchdown numbers from a very nice 9 rookie touchdowns to an even better 12 touchdowns in 2015. I loved Jeremy Hills tape from Tennessee and believe the Bengals are still all-in on Hill for this upcoming season. Fantasy football is about touchdowns for most leagues and Hill could easily put up 10 in 2016. Jeremy Hill should get his 225 touches as well with no real goal line or between the tackles threat on the roster. Do not fear Giovani Bernard.

Gio gets 3-year Extension


The extension puts Bernard under contract through the 2019 season.

"It's great to be able to extend our commitment with Gio," coach Marvin Lewis said in a statement. "It's all a part of what I keep saying -- draft the right players, develop them and retain them. We're excited about the great things Gio will continue to add to our offense."

Fantasy Goo: The Bengals backfield will once again be a timeshare in 2016, with Gio doing dual work as the receiving threat. Jeremy Hill will once again frustrate his owners when Gio steps in if he struggles. Bernard had a 4.7 YPC average last season.

Bengals ink Bernard to 3-year, $15.5M extension


The Cincinnati Bengals singed running back Giovani Bernard to a three-year, $15.5 million contract extension, locking him down through 2019.

Fantasy Goo: Giovani Bernard had a nice season for a backup running back in 2016 with 1,202 and 2 touchdowns. Jeremy Hill owners will want to handcuff Giovani Bernard sometime late in the draft after round 10 or so based on how fast running backs are going in your own draft. Jeremy Hill came out smoking his rookie season but, last year he did not seem to be mentally prepared for the lion’s share of the running duties. Jeremy Hill produced touchdowns but was not dependable especially considering his high draft spot. Gio is one of those guys nobody else will care much about unless they have Jeremy Hill. Gio is a very nice PPR play for a late rounder.

Giovani Bernard rushed eight times for 36 yards and caught 5-of-8 targets for 43 yards


He out-snapped backfield mate Jeremy Hill 50-22, according to PFF's Nate Jahnke, and out-gained Hill 79-20 on just three more touches.

Its obvious that Hill isnt much more than a short yardage goal back, and Bernard is doing all the other work, he is especially a hot commodity in PPR leagues, and should be treated as a number 2 or flex play.

If you have Jeremy Hill continue to put him in your lineup. He wont be the PPR player that Gio is, but is still valuable around the goal line, and will grab one or two receptions for your team.

Possibly Out Longer


Its been rumored that Jeremy Hill has been moving up the board in Cincinnati, and has already cut Bernard's playing time in half when he returns.

Bernard's validity as a starter on your fantasy team is now up for debate, at the very worst he makes a good flex option, but see if you can get some high value for him.

Out-According to Paul Dehner


It would of been surprising to see him in the lineup after this short week. He will get more than 2 1/2 weeks of rest now, and should be ready for the following week.

Jeremy Hill can more than handle himself as the feature back and Bernard appeared to be wearing down a bit before his injury. If Gio is inactive, Hill will be a no-brainer RB1.

Gio showing he can handle the goal line


Jeremy Hill may weigh 20 more pounds than Gio, but the rookie has yet to prove it on the big stage. Bernard ran for five touchdowns last season, and with a more run focused offense that number should rise in 2014.

The good news for those who are fans of Gio, like me, is that he will get work in the redzone, and on the goal line. While he is not a true workhorse back, he is also not a back that is pulled inside the five-yard line. He is a determined runner, and should be able to build on his rookie season where he had 1,209 yards from scrimmage with 56 receptions.

Gio is not going to be a 25 touch player this year according to Jay Gruden


Gio is a fantastic back, who has the potential to turn any play into a big gainer. I do also feel what Gruden says is correct. Bernard is not going to be as effective if he is taking the punishment of 20+ carries.

We have seen what happened when the Bills decided to make C.J. Spiller a 20 carry player, and the Bengals should learn from that. Gio is a special talent, and he should be on the field more, but he does need to stay fresh.

This week Bernard is facing the Ravens who are only giving up 11.9 points a game to running backs, which is the best in the league. It would be wise to temper your expectations for him this week, but he can always break one.

We hope you have this guy on your team, because we were all over this before the season started. Gio is by far the most talented back for the Bengals, and has shown the ability to do it all.

We have told you for awhile now that Giovani is going to be the real fantasy player for the Bengals, and this game was a prelude of things to come. Bernard was able to show off all the aspects of his game with running and receiving touchdowns. The bigger touchdown may have been the touchdown run against a tough run defense and he showed his determination pushing the ball over the goal line. The Law Firm is in trouble and will eventually give way to the rookie.

Giovani Bernard has been climbing in my tiers since the start of training camp. This game performance is just another feather in this cap and reason to understand that Bernard is going to have much more value this season than The Law Firm.

Bernard is showing all the flash and ability that made him a coveted player by the Bengals, and with his addition, as well as Tyler Eifert, the Bengals should have a lot more pop in their offense this season.

This is a decent showing for Bernard in his first NFL action. He was not able to break a big run, but being able to score in a goal line formation is encouraging. Bernard was able to be more effective in the passing game with his 3 catches, and that is where he should make a bigger impact in his rookie season.

Bernard is still trying to take the starting job from Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis and now has 3 more games to make a bigger impression.

Bernard was drafted to be the Bengals back of the future, and his pass catching skills were a big reason why they wanted him. Bernard had 92 receptions for 852 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2 years at North Carolina. Bernard was already going to be the change of pace from The Law Firm, but now it seems that he is going to see a lot of involvement in the passing game and could have at least 40 catches this season, making him a viable option in PPR leagues.

Cincinnati Bengals

Jeremy Hill Star vs Dud


For all of the talk that 2015 was a down year for Hill, he still wound up being one of the best fantasy backs in terms of scoring... Just not on a consistent basis. But this is also a good example of how a good fantasy player doesn't always translate into an actual good player.

Fantasy Goo: A sophomore slump or sophomore jinx or sophomore jitters refers to an instance in which a second, or sophomore, effort fails to live up to the standards of the first effort. In 2014, Hill had 1,339 combined yards vs 873 in 2015. Oddly, Hill improved his touchdown numbers from a very nice 9 rookie touchdowns to an even better 12 touchdowns in 2015. I loved Jeremy Hills tape from Tennessee and believe the Bengals are still all-in on Hill for this upcoming season.

Gio gets 3-year Extension


The extension puts Bernard under contract through the 2019 season.

"It's great to be able to extend our commitment with Gio," coach Marvin Lewis said in a statement. "It's all a part of what I keep saying -- draft the right players, develop them and retain them. We're excited about the great things Gio will continue to add to our offense."

Fantasy Goo: The Bengals backfield will once again be a timeshare in 2016, with Gio doing dual work as the receiving threat. Jeremy Hill will once again frustrate his owners when Gio steps in if he struggles. Bernard had a 4.7 YPC average last season.

Bengals ink Bernard to 3-year, $15.5M extension


The Cincinnati Bengals singed running back Giovani Bernard to a three-year, $15.5 million contract extension, locking him down through 2019.

Fantasy Goo: Giovani Bernard had a nice season for a backup running back in 2016 with 1,202 and 2 touchdowns. Jeremy Hill owners will want to handcuff Giovani Bernard sometime late in the draft after round 10 or so based on how fast running backs are going in your own draft. Jeremy Hill came out smoking his rookie season but, last year he did not seem to be mentally prepared for the lion’s share of the running duties. Jeremy Hill produced touchdowns but was not dependable especially considering his high draft spot. Gio is one of those guys nobody else will care much about unless they have Jeremy Hill. Gio is a very nice PPR play for a late rounder.

Jeremy Hill may weigh 20 more pounds than Gio, but the rookie has yet to prove it on the big stage. Bernard ran for five touchdowns last season, and with a more run focused offense that number should rise in 2014.

The good news for those who are fans of Gio, like me, is that he will get work in the redzone, and on the goal line. While he is not a true workhorse back, he is also not a back that is pulled inside the five-yard line. He is a determined runner, and should be able to build on his rookie season where he had 1,209 yards from scrimmage with 56 receptions.

Gio is not going to be a 25 touch player this year according to Jay Gruden


Gio is a fantastic back, who has the potential to turn any play into a big gainer. I do also feel what Gruden says is correct. Bernard is not going to be as effective if he is taking the punishment of 20+ carries.

We have seen what happened when the Bills decided to make C.J. Spiller a 20 carry player, and the Bengals should learn from that. Gio is a special talent, and he should be on the field more, but he does need to stay fresh.

This week Bernard is facing the Ravens who are only giving up 11.9 points a game to running backs, which is the best in the league. It would be wise to temper your expectations for him this week, but he can always break one.

Giovani Bernard has been climbing in my tiers since the start of training camp. This game performance is just another feather in this cap and reason to understand that Bernard is going to have much more value this season than The Law Firm.

Bernard is showing all the flash and ability that made him a coveted player by the Bengals, and with his addition, as well as Tyler Eifert, the Bengals should have a lot more pop in their offense this season.

This is a decent showing for Bernard in his first NFL action. He was not able to break a big run, but being able to score in a goal line formation is encouraging. Bernard was able to be more effective in the passing game with his 3 catches, and that is where he should make a bigger impact in his rookie season.

Bernard is still trying to take the starting job from Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis and now has 3 more games to make a bigger impression.

Bernard was drafted to be the Bengals back of the future, and his pass catching skills were a big reason why they wanted him. Bernard had 92 receptions for 852 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2 years at North Carolina. Bernard was already going to be the change of pace from The Law Firm, but now it seems that he is going to see a lot of involvement in the passing game and could have at least 40 catches this season, making him a viable option in PPR leagues.

Running back by community for Bengals?


Joe Mixon actually led the Bengals with 8 rushing attempts and 3 passing targets in week 1. Problem is on those 8 carries he gained 9 yards for 1.1 per tote. He had the 2nd most total snaps on offense with 22 (36% of offensive snaps). Meaning when he was on the field, they were going to him half the time.

Giovani Bernard led the team with 29 snaps (48%), maybe because they were down for the entire game and he's their 3rd down back. Gio had the best running play for 23 yards and the longest catch as well with a 39-yard catch and run. Gio looked the best of the lot in Week 1, but was that situational?

Jeremy Hill looked like shit. Only on the field for 10 plays (16%) and didn't do much with his lake of opportunities. Looks like Hill is nothing more than a power game runner that has to score a red zone TD to do anything for your team.

With the first preseason game on Friday, the Bengals released their 1st depth chart of 2017. In a surprise to some they have Hill as the RB1, Bernard as the RB2, and Mixon among the RB3’s.

Fantasy Goo:It won’t be long before Hill and Mixon get flipped on this list. I think every team has upside-down depth charts for trade bait at this point in the preseason. Hill and Bernard are still worth drafting in round 12 or later, they could hold on to their roles for the first half of the season, but Mixon will take over before long.

Bengals To Use Running Back Tandem On field Together In 2016


The Bengals have suffered a ton of losses on the offensive side of the ball this offseason. WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamad Sanu both left via free agency and ProBowl TE Tyler Eifert may not be ready for the season opener because of injuries. To make up for these losses, Cincinnati Bengals editor Geoff Hobson reports that the Bengals may use more two-back sets involving both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. (CincinnatiBengals.com )

Fantasy Goo: This would be great for the fantasy value of both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill, who are both way too talented to split carries the way that they did last season. Bernard in particular, provides plenty of value in PPR leagues because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. If Eifert misses a significant period of time, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bernard was the second leading receiver in yards and receptions on the Bengals. The loss of Eifert also helps Hill’s value as well. Last year on the goal-line, QB Andy Dalton basically stared down TE Tyler Eifert on route to a league leading 13 TDs. If Eifert is out, those goal-line throws may turn into handoffs for Hill.

Bernard is showing all the flash and ability that made him a coveted player by the Bengals, and with his addition, as well as Tyler Eifert, the Bengals should have a lot more pop in their offense this season.

Bernard was drafted to be the Bengals back of the future, and his pass catching skills were a big reason why they wanted him.

Bernard was already going to be the change of pace from The Law Firm, but now it seems that he is going to see a lot of involvement in the passing game and could have at least 40 catches this season, making him a viable option in PPR leagues.

Jeremy Hill

Cincinnati Bengals

Running back by community for Bengals?


Joe Mixon actually led the Bengals with 8 rushing attempts and 3 passing targets in week 1. Problem is on those 8 carries he gained 9 yards for 1.1 per tote. He had the 2nd most total snaps on offense with 22 (36% of offensive snaps). Meaning when he was on the field, they were going to him half the time.

Giovani Bernard led the team with 29 snaps (48%), maybe because they were down for the entire game and he's their 3rd down back. Gio had the best running play for 23 yards and the longest catch as well with a 39-yard catch and run. Gio looked the best of the lot in Week 1, but was that situational?

Jeremy Hill looked like shit. Only on the field for 10 plays (16%) and didn't do much with his lake of opportunities. Looks like Hill is nothing more than a power game runner that has to score a red zone TD to do anything for your team.

Hill and Bernard are still worth drafting in round 12 or later, they could hold on to their roles for the first half of the season, but Mixon will take over before long.

Bengals To Use Running Back Tandem On field Together In 2016


The Bengals have suffered a ton of losses on the offensive side of the ball this offseason. WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamad Sanu both left via free agency and ProBowl TE Tyler Eifert may not be ready for the season opener because of injuries. To make up for these losses, Cincinnati Bengals editor Geoff Hobson reports that the Bengals may use more two-back sets involving both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. (CincinnatiBengals.com )

Fantasy Goo: This would be great for the fantasy value of both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill, who are both way too talented to split carries the way that they did last season. Bernard in particular, provides plenty of value in PPR leagues because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. If Eifert misses a significant period of time, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bernard was the second leading receiver in yards and receptions on the Bengals. The loss of Eifert also helps Hill’s value as well. Last year on the goal-line, QB Andy Dalton basically stared down TE Tyler Eifert on route to a league leading 13 TDs. If Eifert is out, those goal-line throws may turn into handoffs for Hill.

Jeremy Hill Star vs Dud


For all of the talk that 2015 was a down year for Hill, he still wound up being one of the best fantasy backs in terms of scoring... Just not on a consistent basis. But this is also a good example of how a good fantasy player doesn't always translate into an actual good player.

Fantasy Goo: A sophomore slump or sophomore jinx or sophomore jitters refers to an instance in which a second, or sophomore, effort fails to live up to the standards of the first effort. In 2014, Hill had 1,339 combined yards vs 873 in 2015. Oddly, Hill improved his touchdown numbers from a very nice 9 rookie touchdowns to an even better 12 touchdowns in 2015. I loved Jeremy Hills tape from Tennessee and believe the Bengals are still all-in on Hill for this upcoming season. Fantasy football is about touchdowns for most leagues and Hill could easily put up 10 in 2016. Jeremy Hill should get his 225 touches as well with no real goal line or between the tackles threat on the roster. Do not fear Giovani Bernard.

The extension puts Bernard under contract through the 2019 season.

Fantasy Goo: The Bengals backfield will once again be a timeshare in 2016, with Gio doing dual work as the receiving threat. Jeremy Hill will once again frustrate his owners when Gio steps in if he struggles. Bernard had a 4.7 YPC average last season.

Bengals ink Bernard to 3-year, $15.5M extension


The Cincinnati Bengals singed running back Giovani Bernard to a three-year, $15.5 million contract extension, locking him down through 2019.

Fantasy Goo: Giovani Bernard had a nice season for a backup running back in 2016 with 1,202 and 2 touchdowns. Jeremy Hill owners will want to handcuff Giovani Bernard sometime late in the draft after round 10 or so based on how fast running backs are going in your own draft. Jeremy Hill came out smoking his rookie season but, last year he did not seem to be mentally prepared for the lion’s share of the running duties. Jeremy Hill produced touchdowns but was not dependable especially considering his high draft spot. Gio is one of those guys nobody else will care much about unless they have Jeremy Hill. Gio is a very nice PPR play for a late rounder.

He out-snapped backfield mate Jeremy Hill 50-22, according to PFF's Nate Jahnke, and out-gained Hill 79-20 on just three more touches.

Its obvious that Hill isnt much more than a short yardage goal back, and Bernard is doing all the other work, he is especially a hot commodity in PPR leagues, and should be treated as a number 2 or flex play.

Possibly Out Longer


Its been rumored that Jeremy Hill has been moving up the board in Cincinnati, and has already cut Bernard's playing time in half when he returns.

Bernard's validity as a starter on your fantasy team is now up for debate, at the very worst he makes a good flex option, but see if you can get some high value for him.

Out-According to Paul Dehner


It would of been surprising to see him in the lineup after this short week. He will get more than 2 1/2 weeks of rest now, and should be ready for the following week.

Jeremy Hill can more than handle himself as the feature back and Bernard appeared to be wearing down a bit before his injury. If Gio is inactive, Hill will be a no-brainer RB1.

Gio showing he can handle the goal line


Jeremy Hill may weigh 20 more pounds than Gio, but the rookie has yet to prove it on the big stage. Bernard ran for five touchdowns last season, and with a more run focused offense that number should rise in 2014.

The good news for those who are fans of Gio, like me, is that he will get work in the redzone, and on the goal line. While he is not a true workhorse back, he is also not a back that is pulled inside the five-yard line. He is a determined runner, and should be able to build on his rookie season where he had 1,209 yards from scrimmage with 56 receptions.

Gio is not going to be a 25 touch player this year according to Jay Gruden


Gio is a fantastic back, who has the potential to turn any play into a big gainer. I do also feel what Gruden says is correct. Bernard is not going to be as effective if he is taking the punishment of 20+ carries.

We have seen what happened when the Bills decided to make C.J. Spiller a 20 carry player, and the Bengals should learn from that. Gio is a special talent, and he should be on the field more, but he does need to stay fresh.

This week Bernard is facing the Ravens who are only giving up 11.9 points a game to running backs, which is the best in the league. It would be wise to temper your expectations for him this week, but he can always break one.

Player with the most yards and yet to score a touchdown? It is not Alshon Jeffery, it's actually Le'Veon Bell #TDregression

Bengals To Use Running Back Tandem On field Together In 2016


The Bengals have suffered a ton of losses on the offensive side of the ball this offseason. WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamad Sanu both left via free agency and ProBowl TE Tyler Eifert may not be ready for the season opener because of injuries. To make up for these losses, Cincinnati Bengals editor Geoff Hobson reports that the Bengals may use more two-back sets involving both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. (CincinnatiBengals.com )

Fantasy Goo: This would be great for the fantasy value of both Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill, who are both way too talented to split carries the way that they did last season. Bernard in particular, provides plenty of value in PPR leagues because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. If Eifert misses a significant period of time, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bernard was the second leading receiver in yards and receptions on the Bengals. The loss of Eifert also helps Hill’s value as well. Last year on the goal-line, QB Andy Dalton basically stared down TE Tyler Eifert on route to a league leading 13 TDs. If Eifert is out, those goal-line throws may turn into handoffs for Hill.

Jeremy Hill Star vs Dud


For all of the talk that 2015 was a down year for Hill, he still wound up being one of the best fantasy backs in terms of scoring... Just not on a consistent basis. But this is also a good example of how a good fantasy player doesn't always translate into an actual good player.

Fantasy Goo: A sophomore slump or sophomore jinx or sophomore jitters refers to an instance in which a second, or sophomore, effort fails to live up to the standards of the first effort. In 2014, Hill had 1,339 combined yards vs 873 in 2015. Oddly, Hill improved his touchdown numbers from a very nice 9 rookie touchdowns to an even better 12 touchdowns in 2015. I loved Jeremy Hills tape from Tennessee and believe the Bengals are still all-in on Hill for this upcoming season. Fantasy football is about touchdowns for most leagues and Hill could easily put up 10 in 2016. Jeremy Hill should get his 225 touches as well with no real goal line or between the tackles threat on the roster. Do not fear Giovani Bernard.

Gio gets 3-year Extension


The extension puts Bernard under contract through the 2019 season.

"It's great to be able to extend our commitment with Gio," coach Marvin Lewis said in a statement. "It's all a part of what I keep saying -- draft the right players, develop them and retain them. We're excited about the great things Gio will continue to add to our offense."

Fantasy Goo: The Bengals backfield will once again be a timeshare in 2016, with Gio doing dual work as the receiving threat. Jeremy Hill will once again frustrate his owners when Gio steps in if he struggles. Bernard had a 4.7 YPC average last season.

Bengals ink Bernard to 3-year, $15.5M extension


The Cincinnati Bengals singed running back Giovani Bernard to a three-year, $15.5 million contract extension, locking him down through 2019.

Fantasy Goo: Giovani Bernard had a nice season for a backup running back in 2016 with 1,202 and 2 touchdowns. Jeremy Hill owners will want to handcuff Giovani Bernard sometime late in the draft after round 10 or so based on how fast running backs are going in your own draft. Jeremy Hill came out smoking his rookie season but, last year he did not seem to be mentally prepared for the lion’s share of the running duties. Jeremy Hill produced touchdowns but was not dependable especially considering his high draft spot. Gio is one of those guys nobody else will care much about unless they have Jeremy Hill. Gio is a very nice PPR play for a late rounder.

Giovani Bernard rushed eight times for 36 yards and caught 5-of-8 targets for 43 yards


He out-snapped backfield mate Jeremy Hill 50-22, according to PFF's Nate Jahnke, and out-gained Hill 79-20 on just three more touches.

Its obvious that Hill isnt much more than a short yardage goal back, and Bernard is doing all the other work, he is especially a hot commodity in PPR leagues, and should be treated as a number 2 or flex play.

Not Expected


If you have Jeremy Hill continue to put him in your lineup. He wont be the PPR player that Gio is, but is still valuable around the goal line, and will grab one or two receptions for your team.

Possibly Out Longer


Its been rumored that Jeremy Hill has been moving up the board in Cincinnati, and has already cut Bernard's playing time in half when he returns.

Bernard's validity as a starter on your fantasy team is now up for debate, at the very worst he makes a good flex option, but see if you can get some high value for him.

Out-According to Paul Dehner


It would of been surprising to see him in the lineup after this short week. He will get more than 2 1/2 weeks of rest now, and should be ready for the following week.

Jeremy Hill can more than handle himself as the feature back and Bernard appeared to be wearing down a bit before his injury. If Gio is inactive, Hill will be a no-brainer RB1.

Gio showing he can handle the goal line


Jeremy Hill may weigh 20 more pounds than Gio, but the rookie has yet to prove it on the big stage. Bernard ran for five touchdowns last season, and with a more run focused offense that number should rise in 2014.

The good news for those who are fans of Gio, like me, is that he will get work in the redzone, and on the goal line. While he is not a true workhorse back, he is also not a back that is pulled inside the five-yard line. He is a determined runner, and should be able to build on his rookie season where he had 1,209 yards from scrimmage with 56 receptions.

Gio is not going to be a 25 touch player this year according to Jay Gruden


Gio is a fantastic back, who has the potential to turn any play into a big gainer. I do also feel what Gruden says is correct. Bernard is not going to be as effective if he is taking the punishment of 20+ carries.

We have seen what happened when the Bills decided to make C.J. Spiller a 20 carry player, and the Bengals should learn from that. Gio is a special talent, and he should be on the field more, but he does need to stay fresh.

This week Bernard is facing the Ravens who are only giving up 11.9 points a game to running backs, which is the best in the league. It would be wise to temper your expectations for him this week, but he can always break one.

Gio impressing everyone


We hope you have this guy on your team, because we were all over this before the season started. Gio is by far the most talented back for the Bengals, and has shown the ability to do it all. Bernard will continue to see his role in the offense grow, and has become a solid RB2 with upside in fantasy football.

Giovani Bernard impressive again


We have told you for awhile now that Giovani is going to be the real fantasy player for the Bengals, and this game was a prelude of things to come. Bernard was able to show off all the aspects of his game with running and receiving touchdowns. The bigger touchdown may have been the touchdown run against a tough run defense and he showed his determination pushing the ball over the goal line. The Law Firm is in trouble and will eventually give way to the rookie.

Giovani Bernard continues to impress


Giovani Bernard has been climbing in my tiers since the start of training camp. This game performance is just another feather in this cap and reason to understand that Bernard is going to have much more value this season than The Law Firm.

Bernard is showing all the flash and ability that made him a coveted player by the Bengals, and with his addition, as well as Tyler Eifert, the Bengals should have a lot more pop in their offense this season.

Giovani Bernard scores a touchdown and makes 3 catches


This is a decent showing for Bernard in his first NFL action. He was not able to break a big run, but being able to score in a goal line formation is encouraging. Bernard was able to be more effective in the passing game with his 3 catches, and that is where he should make a bigger impact in his rookie season.

Bernard is still trying to take the starting job from Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis and now has 3 more games to make a bigger impression.

Giovani Bernard will make a PPR impact


Bernard was drafted to be the Bengals back of the future, and his pass catching skills were a big reason why they wanted him. Bernard had 92 receptions for 852 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2 years at North Carolina. Bernard was already going to be the change of pace from The Law Firm, but now it seems that he is going to see a lot of involvement in the passing game and could have at least 40 catches this season, making him a viable option in PPR leagues.
