2015 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs


The Bengals really struggled to run the ball early in the year with Bernard carrying the load. Over his first three games, Gio had 55 carries, 185 yards and three TDs, but he gained only 3.4 yards per carry. In six of his first eight games and in eight of his 13 total games last year, Bernard averaged less than 3.5 yards per carry. For the season, Giovani averaged 4.0 yards per carry while Hill averaged 5.1. Gio is a fine pass catcher who racked up more than 140 receiving yards through the season's first two games. He has run for fewer than 700 yards in each of his first two seasons while averaging 4.1 yards per tote. His lack of success as a runner may lead to him losing touches and becoming more of a change-of-pace back with high upside in the passing game. His bar should be set at 200-225 touches for a maximum of 1,100 yards. He has 70-catch upside with a handful of TDs.

Play against the best Fantasy Football players in the world!

2.03 Draft Sharks - Tough call here between Bernard and Murray. Went Gio because I trust him more to stay healthy and think he has bigger reception upside.
