Bengals fill RB need with Giovani Bernard


Bengals fill RB need with Giovani Bernard

With the 37th overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft, did the Cincinnati Bengals select the next Ray Rice? Time will tell. For right now, the Bengals just plan to use North Carolina RB Giovani Bernard @G_Bernard25 as their change-of-pace back and go from there. Bernard was the first running back taken in this draft.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Bengals draft a Bernard to replace another Bernard (Scott). It was assuredly time for a change. The plodding BenJarvus Green-Ellis @TheLawFirmBJGE is still projected to lead this backfield in carries next season, but it might be close as the Bengals have said that they want to get more burst out of their running game this year. Bernard brings exceptional receiving skills and quickness to Cincinnati. He will be the team's third-down RB right away and is worth monitoring in all leagues, especially PPRs. Look for Bernard to be the Bengals' starting running back by 2014.
