Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Giovani Bernard joins a backfield that led the NFL with 15 drops from the running back position in 2020.
Huddle Up: While Bernard probably won't see a ton of carries, he could carve out a role as the primary third-down back. Tom Brady has made the likes of James White and Rex Burkhead into viable fantasy options, so Bernard's production will be worth keeping an eye on in the early weeks.

Free-agent RB Giovani Bernard (Bengals) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Monday, April 12, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Bernard likely will be used primarily as a receiver out of the backfield and will see a handful of targets each game. He could have some value in point-per-reception leagues but can be avoided in most leagues.

Posted: 3/25/2021 6:18 pm GMT
Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard has been inquired about in calls from 'multiple teams,' per a source Thursday, March 25. And unless he receives a restructured contract, Bernard could soon be dealt.
Huddle Up: Due mainly to an injury to lead back Joe Mixon, Bernard hit five-year career highs last season in touches (171), total yards (771) and TDs (6). He's also caught at least 30 passes in each of his eight NFL seasons and could be a RB4 find in the right landing spot.
