If you drafted Giovani Bernard in your fantasy football league, then chances are you can’t stop smiling. While many had questions about Bernard, the back-up running back has manged to pour in 34 fantasy points in just three weeks of action. The most impressive thing about Bernard’s excellence is that less than half of his points have came due to rushing yards (10.)
Bernard has made a name for himself with two touchdowns and nearly 50 yards receiving. This versatile running back has the ability to do it all, which bodes well for his fantasy football stock from this point on. In fact, Bernard has all of the skills to be the Cincinnati Bengals‘ starting running back as soon as Week 8.
Meanwhile, Cincinnati is extremely high on its football team as the Bengals managed to sneak out a home victory over NFC powerhouse Green Bay Packers on Sunday. While it wasn’t pretty, this game is one that the Bengals would have lost last season. Andy Dalton is hardly an All-Pro, but he rallied behind the Bengals’ advantageous defense and proved many doubters wrong in the process.
It’s been a longtime coming for Bengals fans, but 2013 has a unique feel to it and Cincy’s winning ways are not to be overlooked.
