Giovani Bernard, Cincinnati Bengals at Atlanta Falcons

It’s a little early in the week to give Bernard the full thumbs up, but with a new thigh injury, owners should know to pencil him into the lineup. The Falcons are a bit shaky on defense right now with the mounting injuries but Bernard got plenty of work as the full-time fill-in for Joe Mixon who is going to miss his second-straight week with a knee injury. It’s a great matchup and Bernard is expected to be a three-down back in an offense that is scoring points. – Ernie Estrella
