2016 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Aug-04-2016 by Shawn Childs


The best back in Cincinnati in 2015 was Bernard. He averaged 1.1 yards per carry more than Hill, which was career high (4.7). Even with more success running the ball, Gio scored only two rushing TDs. He remained active in the passing game (49/472). Overall, Bernard had 203 touches for 1202 yards and two TDs. His final stats added up to 181 Fantasy points in PPR leagues, which ranked 16th in 2015. Over his three seasons in the NFL, Giovani averaged 213 touches per game with 17 combined TDs. His Fantasy value remains flat due to more competition for snaps over the last two seasons. In 2015, Cinci's RBs had 396 rushes for 1632 yards and 15 rushing TDs plus 74 catches for 645 yards and two TDs on 99 targets. From a Fantasy perspective, Gio has settled more into the steady mode with a solid floor due to his passing catching ability. He has an excellent shot at 1300+ yards with 50+ catches and a handful of TDs with better play by the Bengals' offensive line.
