Giovani Bernard to do more with his hands?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/23/14) The Bengals have plans to use Giovani Bernard as a receiver in addition to his work as a running back, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported. Bernard ability to make plays in the open field have the coaching staff thinking creatively on how to use him. 

"We want to do more with him because he can do that," running backs coach Kyle Caskey said. "It's not just put him in the slot. We want him everywhere on the field. Make people guess where's he at. You have to make a decision to either play the run or play the pass. What do you do when he's on the field? He's a lot like Reggie Bush where you have to be aware at all times."

Bernard thinks it makes sense. 

"Think about it; if you're in the backfield you have to run five yards or six and a half or seven to get to the line of scrimmage and then you've got to push up five more yards, you've got to get through all of the crowd and you've got to check all of the protections," he said. "So it's almost a lot easier when you're on the slot where all you have to do is just run five yards to get to your spot."

Bernard had 56 catches last year but many of them came on plays where he lined up in the backfield. Per ProFootballFocus.com, Bernard lined up as a receiver just 42 times and sparingly catches from those spots. He totaled just over 1,200 yards and eight touchdowns last year.  

Giovani Bernard sees change in offense coming
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/14) Bengals running back Giovani Bernard sees a change in the offense this season under new coordinator Hue Jackson, reports ESPN.

"It's a lot more tempo, tempo, tempo," Bernard said, adding, "We're just going to smash your face in -- basically."

This offensive coordinator wants to use the run to set up the pass. Some three months before the start of the season, this offense has an identity.

"The mentality of the offense has changed," Bernard said.

Bengals draft RB Jeremy Hill
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/14) With the No. 55 pick in the NFL Draft, the Bengals selected running back Jeremy Hill from LSU.

The Bengals already have Giovani Bernard and BenJarvus Green-Ellis on the roster, but the addition of Hill could mean Green-Ellis is gone.

Hill, who is a big back at 6-foot-1, 233 pounds, had 1,940 rushing yards and 26 rushing touchdowns on 317 carries along with 254 receiving yards on 26 catches for the Tigers. 

If the Bengals release Green-Ellis, Hill would form a formidable duo with Bernard in Cincinnati's backfield.

Lewis hoping for Rice-like second season from Giovani Bernard
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/14) Marvin Lewis was the one to pull in the reins on using Giovani Bernard more than the team did in 2013, but it sounds like he won't do the same in 2014. Lewis told CBSSports.com from the NFL Owners Meeting in Orlando that he wanted to save Bernard for a 20-game season while also mentioning that rookies typically overwork themselves in preparation for the draft. 

But now Lewis is hoping for Bernard to take a deep breath, reflect on his rookie year, and then "mature and grow" into a prominent role in the Bengals' run game. 

"I witnessed in Ray Rice since his rookie year in Baltimore and then from ['08 to '09] and the difference in him. We're hoping that Gio can take those same steps," Lewis said. 

Giovani Bernard to 'border on 300 touches'?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/5/14) Not only did a story on the Bengals official team website list Giovani Bernard as the team's starting running back (and BenJarvus Green-Ellis as a backup), but the story also suggested that Bernard is in line for 300 touches in 2014.

Bernard already had two more touches than Green-Ellis in 2013 but this is a hint that the team will make the transition toward the second-year superstar. 

"After a spectacular NFL Rookie of the Year finalist season, Bernard is only going to get more work and no doubt is going to border on 300 touches," site editor Geoff Hobson wrote. 

Bernard had 170 carries and 56 catches last year.
