|Dec. 31, 2017 7:37 PM PT8:37 PM MT9:37 PM CT10:37 PM ET3:37 GMT11:37 8:37 PM MST10:37 PM EST9:37 PM CT7:37 UAE (+1)22:37 ETNaN:� - Giovani Bernard ran for 52 yards on 10 carries Sunday in the Cincinnati Bengals' 31-27 win over the Baltimore Ravens. He added six receptions for 18 yards.
Analysis: Bernard did very little in the first 11 games of the season before coming on strong down the stretch. He rushed for 337 yards in the final five games while adding 24 catches for 170 yards. He could be a much bigger part of the offense next season if Marvin Lewis is fired.
|Dec. 27, 2017 12:02 PM PT1:02 PM MT2:02 PM CT3:02 PM ET20:02 GMT4:02 1:02 PM MST3:02 PM EST2:02 PM CT0:02 UAE (+1)15:02 ETNaN:� - Bernard was limited in practice throughout the week due to an ankle injury, but will play on Sunday.
Analysis: Bernard had a big game last week with the rest of Cincinnati's backfield banged up. Joe Mixon is still hurting with his own ankle issue, so Bernard could be in line for extended action again.
|Dec. 24, 2017 7:43 PM PT8:43 PM MT9:43 PM CT10:43 PM ET3:43 GMT11:43 8:43 PM MST10:43 PM EST9:43 PM CT7:43 UAE (+1)22:43 ETNaN:� - Giovani Bernard ran for 116 yards and one touchdown on 23 carries Sunday in the Cincinnati Bengals' 26-17 win over the Detroit Lions. He added seven receptions for 52 yards.
Analysis: Bernard was the featured player of Cincinnati's offense after teammate Joe Mixon exited in the first quarter with an ankle injury, and responded with easily his best outing of the season. The versatile back rates as a strong play should Mixon remain out for next week's finale against the Browns. He's averaging 109.3 yards from scrimmage with 18 catches and two touchdowns over his last four games.

He added three receptions for 13 yards.
Analysis: Bernard could slide back into a backup role if Joe Mixon is able to return from a concussion next week.
|Dec. 14, 2017 11:02 AM PT12:02 PM MT1:02 PM CT2:02 PM ET19:02 GMT3:02 12:02 PM MST2:02 PM EST1:02 PM CT23:02 UAE14:02 ETNaN:� - Bernard will play Sunday for the Bengals and start for the second straight week.
Analysis: Bernard could settle back into a backup role when Joe Mixon returns from a concussion, but for now he has some value as the starter in Cincinnati.
|Dec. 10, 2017 2:44 PM PT3:44 PM MT4:44 PM CT5:44 PM ET22:44 GMT6:44 3:44 PM MST5:44 PM EST4:44 PM CT2:44 UAE (+1)17:44 ETNaN:� - Giovani Bernard ran for 62 yards on 11 carries Sunday in the Cincinnati Bengals' 33-7 loss to the Chicago Bears. He added six receptions for 68 yards.
Analysis: Bernard could settle back into a backup role as Joe Mixon is recovering from a concussion and could return in Week 15.

|Nov. 26, 2017 1:22 PM PT2:22 PM MT3:22 PM CT4:22 PM ET21:22 GMT5:22 2:22 PM MST4:22 PM EST3:22 PM CT1:22 UAE (+1)16:22 ETNaN:� - Giovani Bernard ran for 12 yards on three carries Sunday in the Cincinnati Bengals' 30-16 win over the Cleveland Browns. He added one reception for 15 yards.|
|Nov. 19, 2017 6:10 PM PT7:10 PM MT8:10 PM CT9:10 PM ET2:10 GMT10:10 7:10 PM MST9:10 PM EST8:10 PM CT6:10 UAE (+1)21:10 ETNaN:� - Giovani Bernard ran for -4 yards on three carries Sunday in the Cincinnati Bengals' 20-17 win over the Denver Broncos. He added one reception for eight yards.
Analysis: Bernard has now been held under 10 yards from scrimmage in four of the Bengals' five games since their Week 6 bye, making him essentially useless from a fantasy perspective unless an injury strikes Joe Mixon.
|Nov. 12, 2017 1:54 PM PT2:54 PM MT3:54 PM CT4:54 PM ET21:54 GMT5:54 2:54 PM MST4:54 PM EST3:54 PM CT1:54 UAE (+1)16:54 ETNaN:� - Giovani Bernard ran for 10 yards on two carries Sunday in the Cincinnati Bengals' 24-20 loss to the Tennessee Titans. He added five receptions for 38 yards.|

Analysis: Bernard is expected to get the issue fixed up and return later in the game.
|Oct. 22, 2017 4:32 PM PT5:32 PM MT6:32 PM CT7:32 PM ET23:32 GMT7:32 4:32 PM MST6:32 PM EST6:32 PM CT3:32 UAE (+1)19:32 ETNaN:� - Giovani Bernard ran for eight yards on three carries Sunday in the Cincinnati Bengals' 29-14 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He added one reception for -1 yards.
Analysis: Though he still holds the title of Cincinnati's third-down back, Bernard hasn't had more than six touches in any of the last four games. He's off the fantasy radar for now.
|Oct. 8, 2017 1:39 PM PT2:39 PM MT3:39 PM CT4:39 PM ET20:39 GMT4:39 1:39 PM MST3:39 PM EST3:39 PM CT0:39 UAE (+1)16:39 ETNaN:� - Giovani Bernard ran for two yards on two carries Sunday in the Cincinnati Bengals' 20-16 win over the Buffalo Bills. He added two receptions for 30 yards.|

He added three receptions for 67 yards and one touchdown.
Analysis: As unusual, Bernard is at his best when catching the ball. That's his only real fantasy value in muddled backfield situation.
|Sep. 28, 2017 10:43 AM PT11:43 AM MT12:43 PM CT1:43 PM ET17:43 GMT1:43 10:43 AM MST12:43 PM EST12:43 PM CT21:43 UAE13:43 ETNaN:� - Bernard has been limited in practice this week because of a thigh injury but is not on the final injury report for Week 4.
Analysis: Bernard being on the practice field seems to be a good indication he'll play Sunday, but he is no longer a good fantasy option with Joe Mixon emerging as a dual threat.
|Sep. 24, 2017 5:36 PM PT6:36 PM MT7:36 PM CT8:36 PM ET0:36 GMT8:36 5:36 PM MST7:36 PM EST7:36 PM CT4:36 UAE (+1)20:36 ETNaN:� - Giovani Bernard ran for 27 yards on three carries Sunday in the Cincinnati Bengals' 27-24 loss to the Green Bay Packers. He added two receptions for 12 yards and one touchdown.|
|Sep. 14, 2017 8:37 PM PT9:37 PM MT10:37 PM CT11:37 PM ET3:37 GMT11:37 8:37 PM MST10:37 PM EST10:37 PM CT7:37 UAE (+1)23:37 ETNaN:� - Giovani Bernard ran for 10 yards on five carries Thursday in the Cincinnati Bengals' 13-9 loss to the Houston Texans. He added two receptions for 16 yards.|
|Sep. 10, 2017 1:18 PM PT2:18 PM MT3:18 PM CT4:18 PM ET20:18 GMT4:18 1:18 PM MST3:18 PM EST3:18 PM CT0:18 UAE (+1)16:18 ETNaN:� - Giovani Bernard ran for 40 yards on seven carries Sunday in the Cincinnati Bengals' 20-0 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. He added one reception for 39 yards.
Analysis: Some might have been surprised that Bernard was as big a part of the offense as he was following the drafting of speedy Joe Mixon, but it appears those two along with Jeremy Hill will be sharing the touches for now. Bernard did look good, though, in his comeback from an ACL injury.
|Aug. 12, 2017 10:31 AM PT11:31 AM MT12:31 PM CT1:31 PM ET17:31 GMT1:31 10:31 AM MST12:31 PM EST12:31 PM CT21:31 UAE13:31 ETNaN:� - Bernard was held out of the Bengals' preseason opener Friday.
Analysis: The Bengals are just being cautious with Bernard, who has fully practiced in camp while recovering from ACL surgery midway through last season. However, that injury and the arrival of Joe Mixon put into question whether Bernard has much fantasy value anymore.
