Giovani Bernard Fills In Well Against Cleveland

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard racked up 37 yards off 13 carries during the heartbreaking loss to the Cleveland Browns. He also added five catches for 59 yards and a touchdown. The veteran filled in admirably for Joe Mixon (foot), who is considered week-to-week after being injured during the Week 6 encounter with the Colts. At this point, the 28-year-old has likely found a home on fantasy rosters. However, if he is still floating around the waiver wire, managers should pick him up before it's too late, especially if Mixon cannot suit up against the Titans in Week 8. Although Bernard isn't the most efficient runner, he should continue to benefit from the team's pass-heavy offense.

Giovani Bernard Steps In As No. 1 Against Browns

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard will serve as the No. 1 option out of the backfield on Sunday against Cleveland. With Joe Mixon (foot) out of the equation, the 28-year-old has a chance to make a dent on the fantasy front against a Browns Defense that has struggled against the run over the past few weeks. While Bernard isn't the most impactful rusher on the planet, he does possess a James White-Esque skillset that makes him a lethal threat as a pass-catcher. With rookie signal-caller Joe Burrow racking up four 300-yard passing outings this season, the former Tar Heel could be one of the most effective waiver wire pickups for Week 7 in addition to being a DFS value play with enormous potential.

Giovani Bernard Runs It In For Six

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard racked up 15 yards and a touchdown off of eight carries during the loss to the Colts on Sunday. He also hauled in all three of his targets for 13 yards. Although the veteran hasn't been a reliable source of fantasy production during the 2020 campaign, he was able to make some noise after Joe Mixon suffered an ankle injury in the first half. If Mixon ends up carrying a questionable tag heading into the matchup with Cleveland, expect Bernard to garner plenty of attention from fantasy community throughout the week.
