Description: Bengals running back Giovani Bernard was fantasy relevant in garbage time in Week 15.
Insight: Bernard had 79 yards on 15 carries and gained 24 more yards on three catches, but nearly all of that came in the second half with Cincinnati ahead by more than 20. Owners shouldn't count on Bernard repeating that performance versus the tough Broncos next week.

Description: Bengals running back Giovani Bernard is expected to split the workload 50-50 with Jeremy Hill, according Paul Dehner of the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Insight: If one back gets hot we expect the Bengals toride that hand. In the meantime, both halfbacks should be considered an RB2.

Description: Bengals running back Giovani Bernard (hip) is officially active Sunday against Houston.
Insight: Jeremy Hill is still expected to see the majority of the carries, but Bernard will be mixed in as well. We advise owners to be very cautious with Bernard during his first game back.
 
11/21/2014 2:32:00 PM
Description: Bengals running back Giovani Bernard (hip) was again a full participant in practice and should be ready to go Sunday.
Insight: We think it's likely Jeremy Hill get the majority of the rushing attempts and Bernard is the receiving back, but could still see 10-14 touches.
 
11/20/2014 3:10:00 PM
Description: Bengals running back Giovani Bernard (hip) was a full participant in Thursday's practice and should be ready to go Sunday.
Insight: It is unclear how the distribution of the workload will go considering how well backup Jeremy Hill played in Bernard's absence. We think it's likely Hill get the majority of the rushing attempts and Bernanrd is the receiving back.

Description: Bengals running back Giovani Bernard (hip) returned to practice on Wednesday.

11/12/2014 1:27:00 PM
Description: NFL Network's Albert Breer reports the Bengals are "not expecting" Giovani Bernard to play against the Saints this Sunday.
Insight: Breer reported last week that Bernard may be out through Week 11 and even longer. It sounds like it will be Jeremy Hill's backfield for the immediate future. Fantasy owners with Bernard might have to look elsewhere for running back help, not just in Week 11, but for the entire fantasy playoff push.

Description: As expected, Bengals running back Giovani Bernard is inactive for Thursday night's game against the Browns.
Insight: That isn't new, but the now Bernard might not even return in Week 11 after the extra rest. Jeremy Hill gets another opportunity to prove he deserves more playing time even when Bernard returns.
 
11/6/2014 9:05:00 AM
Description: Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis has said that running back Giovani Bernard will not play Thursday against Cleveland.
Insight: The short prep week for a Thursday night game killed his chances to return. Rookie Jeremy Hill rushed for 154 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Bernard's absence last Sunday and fantasy owners should expect the rookie to be a workhorse again in Week 10.
 
11/4/2014 11:05:00 AM
Description: Bengals running back Giovani Bernard is doubtful for Thursday's game against Cleveland.
Insight: The short prep week for a Thursday night game isn't helping. Rookie Jeremy Hill rushed for 154 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Bernard's absence and fantasy owners should expect the rookie to be a workhorse again in Week 10.
 
11/3/2014 11:21:00 AM
Description: Bengals running back Giovani Bernard certainly won't lose his starting gig, but Jeremy Hill's performance may have earned him a bigger share of the pie.
Insight: Rookie Jeremy Hill rushed for 154 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Bernard's absence. The Bengals play Thursday and Bernard is still listed as questionable.
 
10/30/2014 2:26:00 PM
Description: Bengals running back Giovani Bernard missed a second practice due to a hip injury and its looking like he won't play Sunday unless things change very quickly.
Insight: If Bernard can't play, rookie Jeremy Hill becomes a solid RB2 and possibly an RB1 against a weak Jacksonville defense.
 
10/26/2014 6:58:00 PM
Description: Bengals running back Giovani Bernard scored a touchdown before leaving the game with a hip innjury.
Insight: The score saved his fanatsy-day, as he had only 45 yards on 16 carries, along with two catches for two yards. As long as he is able to suit up for Week 9, Bernard will maintain his borderline RB1 status.
 
10/26/2014 11:48:00 AM
Description: Bengals running back Giovani Bernard (ribs) is active for Week 8.
Insight: The injury was never considered serious, so keep Bernard as your RB1 option for Week 8 against Baltimore.
