Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Signs three-year extension on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bernard signed a three-year, $15.5 million extension with the Bengals on Wednesday.

Bernard will now be a Bengal through 2019 as he heads into the prime of his career. The 24-year-old rushed for 730 yards and two touchdowns to go along with 49 receptions for 472 yards last season, as he split time with Jeremy Hill.

Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Heads into contract year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giovani Bernard (concussion) is among the Cincinnati Bengals ' running backs heading into a contract year.

The same applies to Rex Burkhead and Cedric Peerman, while Jeremy Hill is the only Cincinnati back signed for 2017. With that in mind, it wouldn't surprise us if the team added some running back depth in next week's draft. In any case, Bernard -- who has had plenty of time to bounce back from the concussion he suffered during the NFL playoffs -- is in line to reprise his role working in tandem with Hill, a time-share that favors Hill on early downs and Bernard in passing situations.

Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Exits Wild Card loss with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bernard (concussion) exited the Bengals' Wild Card playoff loss to the Steelers with a concussion, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

Bernard took a helmet-to-helmet hit from Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier that went unflagged, and which separated the Bengals tailback from the ball after he'd initially notched the reception. The 24-year-old is in the NFL concussion protocol as a result of the blow, and gained 28 yards on six carries before exiting the contest. He also secured two of his four targets for four yards.

Bengals' Giovani Bernard: 48 yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giovani Bernard rushed six times for 36 yards and caught one of three targets for 12 receiving yards during Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Jeremy Hill led the Cincinnati Bengals ' backfield once again, rushing 16 times for 96 yards and a touchdown and adding 19 yards through the air. Bernard may grab a goal-line carry here or there, but Hill remains the upside back of the two for fantasy purposes.

Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Collects 43 yards against Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giovani Bernard caught four passes off of five targets for 29 yards and added 14 rushing yards on eight carries in Monday's loss to the Broncos.

In AJ McCarron's two starts, both Bernard and Jeremy Hill have seen an uptick in touches, however Hill's has been more pronounced. Through the first 13 weeks of the season, Bernard averaged 12.8 touches per game, but is up to 15 per game with McCarron under center. Hill has seen his weekly touches spike from 13.8 to 20. More importantly, Hill has found the end zone twice during that brief span while Bernard is sporting a nine-game scoreless streak. With the Cincinnati Bengals in a must-win situation and McCarron dinged up, expect Cincinnati to continue to lean toward Hill's bruising style.
