Bengals' Giovani Bernard: Scores first rushing touchdown of season Sunday
Bernard carried 17 times for 80 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's game against the Browns. He also caught one of two targets for an additional seven yards in the 31-17 win.
Bernard received more carries than Jeremy Hill for the third consecutive game, although he uncharacteristically failed to make an impact through the air. The rushing touchdown was his first of 2016 and he notched season-highs in carries and yardage as well. If Bernard continues to see this sort of volume on the ground, he could hold significant fantasy value, as his pass-catching involvement should resurface sooner rather than later. Hill and Bernard will continue to hinder each other's upside at times, but both backs could feast in Week 8 against a feeble Redskins run defense.
