Huddle Up: Fantasy owners wouldn't mind seeing Gio get 300 touches this season, a reasonable workload that shouldn't overly tax the smaller-in-stature Bernard. The key will be if Jeremy Hill (or Rex Burkhead, or BenJarvus Green-Ellis) plays well enough to earn a chunk of carries that will keep Gio fresh without compromising the Bengals' offensive success.

Huddle Up: Bernard was targeted 71 times and did have 56 receptions as a rookie, which ranked 8th among all NFL RBs last season. Count on him being one of the top backs off the board in most PPR leagues this summer.

Huddle Up: Bernard had 226 touches to Green-Ellis' 224 last season, but look for the margin to swing more in favor of the second-year RB if both players are back in Cincy next season.

Huddle Up: A great game to start off the fantasy playoffs, but BenJarvus Green-Ellis was the one getting into the end zone. Bernard should have PPR value, but the Law Firm is going to be in the way.

Huddle Up: Bernard injured his ribs late in his standout Week 9 Thursday night performance against the Dolphins, and has needed the extra days to recover. With limited touches, his owners are going to have to hope 1 or 2 of them are signature big plays from the rookie.

Huddle Up: Bernard was having have a huge game before leaving late with a rib injury. We'll know more about his status during the week but hopefully Bernard will be able to play against Baltimore next Sunday.

Huddle Up: At least the rookie delivered with 104 total yards and 2 TDs before departing the game in the fourth quarter. He'll also have an extra few days of rest with the Bengals not playing again until a week from Sunday.

Huddle Up: With his team down 17-3, Bernard got the Bengals back in the game with a pair of second-half rushing touchdowns and finished with 104 total yards on only 13 touches. There was no immediate word on how serious the injury is, but at at least the rookie will have a few extra days to recover with 10 days until Cincy's Week 10 contest.

Huddle Up: Bernard was added to the team's injury report Thursday, but that sounds it was more a scare than anything for the rookie who figures to be in line for a bigger role in the Cincy game plan coming off his 2-TD game in Week 2.

Huddle Up: You knew this was coming. BJGE has more touches than Bernard through two games (38 to 14) but his 2.8 YPC average is not what the team needs. What they need are young legs that are averaging 5.0 YPC and bring a bigger threat in the passing game.

Huddle Up: Those fantasy GMs who decided to roll with Bernard in their starting lineups despite his 3-point fantasy dud in Week 1 enjoyed a nice reversal of fortune Monday night. Bernard still only had 9 touches in the game -- 8 rushes for 38 yards and his 27-yard scoring catch -- but he's no doubt earned more work after his impressive showing.
