Bengals' Giovani Bernard looking to make most of opportunities

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard said that he knows his role and is going to make the most of the opportunities presented to him.

What It Means:

In Week 1, Bernard was more productive than fellow backs Joe Mixon and Jeremy Hill. On eight touches and 29 snaps, he contributed 79 yards, which was 31 more than both Mixon and Hill combined. The game script certainly played out in his favor, but Bernard and the Bengals are in for another tough matchup with the Houston Texans.

At $5,700, numberFire projects Bernard for 7.3 rushes, 28.4 rushing yards and 0.22 rushing touchdowns in the Bengals' home opener. They also expect him to tally 1.9 catches, 17.5 receiving yards and 0.07 receiving touchdowns for a total of 7.2 FanDuel points.
