Offensive issues stall Giovani Bernard in Week 7
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Bengals running back Giovani Bernard put together his worst game of the season in Week 7, but Fantasy owners probably shouldn't be too concerned about it.

Bernard ran the ball just seven times in the game for 17 yards, both of which are his lowest totals of the season. Of course, he wasn't really the problem, as the Bengals had just 135 yards of total offense in the game. It would have been hard for any running back to find success with that kind of pitiful showing by the team as a whole.

Bernard played a big part in everything the Bengals do, so it isn't much of a surprise that he couldn't find room to operate Sunday. He touched the ball a season-low nine times, and should be looking at a much larger role moving forward. Despite his subpar showing, Bernard should be active in all formats for Week 8 against the Ravens -- he already racked up 110 all-purpose yards against them in Week 1.

Giovani Bernard, Jeremy Hill combine for 32 yards in defeat
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The duo of Bengals running backs Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill was far from dynamic in Week 7 against the host Colts.

Bernard finished with just 17 yards on seven attempts - all in the first three quarters. Hill managed a mere 15 yard on four tries and was held without a yard on two rushes before intermission. Bernard did catch two passes - but went backward one yard for his effort.

The pair will try to turn it up several notches when the Bengals host Baltimore next Sunday.

Giovani Bernard remains dependent on big play
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Bengals running back Giovani Bernard ran for a career high 137 yards Week 6 against Carolina. The problem, if you could call it that, is that 89 of them came on a single play.

It's not really a problem, of course, because it's what Bernard does. He's not one of those running backs who's going to pick up 4 or 5 yards every time he touches the ball. He's going to do very little until he does something great.

In three of his best four games Fantasy-wise this season, he had a play of more than 30 yards. In the other, he had only 54 total yards, but he scored two touchdowns. Remove that 89-yard run from his Week 6 line, and he has just 48 yards on 17 carries and 20 yards on four catches. But of course, you can't remove it because it's what he does.

Let games like this one encourage you the next time Bernard has a game like he had Week 5 at New England, accumulating 72 total yards with no touchdowns. His next big play is just around the corner.

Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushes for career-high 137 yards
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Bengals running back Giovani Bernard survived an injury scare Week 6 vs. Carolina to rush for a career-high 137 yards on 18 carries during a 37-all tie. Bernard, who was targeted five times, added four catches for 20 yards.

Most of Bernard's rushing yards came on an 89-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. It was his fourth rushing touchdown this season.

Bernard had to leave the game early in the fourth quarter due to a shoulder injury, but he returned to the game late in the fourth quarter and was able to play through overtime. The Bengals are back in action Week 7 at Indianapolis.
