The Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard (ribs) practiced on a limited basis on Friday and is listed as questionable for the team's Week 10 match up against the Baltimore Ravens. Bernard was limited in practice all week and owners need to continue to monitor the situation before inserting him into their lineups.
Fantasy Impact: Bernard is expected to play but his situation isn't exactly promising for fantasy owners this week. Bernard hasn't seen double-digit carries since Week 6. While Bernard did find the end zone twice last week against the Miami Dolphins, it marked the fourth game this season where he hit pay dirt. Clearly not 100 percent healthy, owners should expect a full-blown time share with him and BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
Owners also need the factor in Baltimore elite run defense which has given up the fewest fantasy points to running backs all year. The first running back taken in the 2013 NFL draft, Bernard has not disappointed thus far. However, with all of the factors at play, Bernard will be a low-end RB2/Flex play in Week 10. Owners need to check back in on Sunday to make sure that he will suit up.
