Tampa Bay Buccaneers RBs Leonard Fournette and Giovani Bernard were re-signed this offseason, but general manager Jason Licht noted Tuesday, April 19, that their presence on the roster will not preclude the team from drafting a running back.
Huddle Up: With the exception of perhaps drafting Iowa State's Breece Hall, whatever running back Tampa Bay adds in the draft probably won't have a sizable impact on Fournette this year and probably speaks more to the team's disappointment in Ke'Shawn Vaughn. With that said, Fournette's salary jumps up from $2 million this year to $6.5 million next year, potentially making the three-year deal he signed less than a month ago more of a one-year pact.

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Giovani Bernard (Buccaneers) signed a one-year contract worth $1.12 million - including a $152,500 signing bonus - to return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday, April 1.

Free-agent RB Giovani Bernard (Buccaneers) reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract to return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday, April 1. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.
Huddle Up: Bernard signed with the Buccaneers last season to be the new James White in theory, but a combination of injuries and Leonard Fournette playing well minimized the impact he was supposed to have. Perhaps the departure of Ronald Jones adds a few carries to Bernard's plate this season, but Fournette should be considered the bell-cow until further notice. Bernard should be considered no more than an RB5 for fantasy purposes.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Giovani Bernard (hip, knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 21, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game.
Huddle Up: Bernard posted 83 total yards in the Wild Card playoff game and should still see a decent amount of touches even if Leonard Fournette is available for the game. He could be a flex option in some leagues because of his involvement in both the running and passing game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Giovani Bernard (knee, hip) was activated from the Reserve/Injured-Designated to Return list Saturday, Jan. 15, and is expected to play vs. the Philadelphia Eagles in Wild Card Weekend, according to a source..
Huddle Up: Bernard has fantasy appeal as a check-down outlet for Tom Brady in PPR leagues, especially with winds into the the 20-plus-mph range. There's concern about him coming off injury and just how many snaps he'll see after suffering a pair of lower-body injuries. Gio is best reserved for DFS showdown-style contests.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Giovani Bernard rushed four times for 21 yards in Week 5 against the Miami Dolphins and he added two receptions for 14 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Bernard missed last week's game at New England due to a knee injury. He is only worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues, especially PPR. The Buccaneers meet the Eagles in Week 6 on Thursday night in Philadelphia.
