Bernard shared carries with BenJarvus Green-Ellis and was held under 60 yards on the ground. He was held to 14 carries for 57 yards (4.1 yards per carry) on the ground and one catch for a gain of 9 yards in a 17-10 victory.
Bernard has not rushed for more than 60 yards since Week 9 against the Dolphins. He will look to get back on track at home against the Colts in Week 14.
On the year the Chargers have allowed just seven touchdowns to running backs, but they've all come within the last four weeks. They've also given up at least 100 total yards to running backs in each of those games -- 130 yards in three of the four -- so they're becoming susceptible to the run.
Bernard is in a position to have a big game because of his versatility while Green-Ellis isn't a bad Fantasy play because of San Diego's recent run defense woes. I like Bernard as a Top 15 Fantasy option while Green-Ellis could fill in if you're thin on talent this week.
