Wholesale nike Giovani Bernard jersey
Giovani Bernard is on the mend after a season-ending ACL tear.
The Cincinnati Bengals running back is expected to get limited work during organized team activities this week, ESPN’s Katherine Terrell reported Monday.
Bernard is just six months removed from an ACL tear. While getting in “limited” work might not constitute doing much, it’s a step in the right direction, which puts the 25-year-old on a path to avoid starting the season on the physically unable to perform list.
The dual-threat back played in 10 games last season before suffering the knee injury. Bernard earned 337 rushing yards on 91 totes with 39 receptions for 336 receiving yards and three total touchdowns in 2016.
With second-round pick Joe Mixon expected to earn a large share of the work, Bernard and Jeremy Hill will split duties in a crowded backfield. If Bernard is fully healthy entering the season, Hill is likely to see his role significantly reduced or could become a cut casualty after two disappointing seasons.

Sometimes, fantasy point totals can deceive.
Case in point. Lamar Miller finished 16th in PPR points among running backs this past season. That seems pretty good, right? Well, he was a top-10 fantasy runner in just 18.8 percent and a top-20 runner in just 31.3 percent of his 16 games. What’s more, Miller scored fewer than 11 points in 56 percent of his games. That’s a far bigger statistical factoid than his overall finish at the position. Anyone who had Miller on their fantasy teams knows that he was actually a disappointment in fantasy football. So, who were the best players when it came to putting up solid totals on a regular basis, and who was more name than numbers?
Here’s a look at the running backs who finished in the top 20 most often last season (minimum seven games), along with some interesting notes on players to watch in 2018.
Between Elliott, Alfred Morris and Rod Smith, the Cowboys had a combined 12 top-20 running backs in PPR formats. … Cook, who missed all but four contests due to an injured knee, had two top-10 performances in his three full games. Between Cook, Murray and Jerick McKinnon, the Vikings had a combined 13 top-20 finishes among running backs. With McKinnon scheduled to become a free agent, Cook figures to be a top-20 overall pick in 2018. … Montgomery and Williams combined to produce nine top-20 ranks at the position, and Aaron Jones had two such performances of his own. With three productive backs on the roster, Green Bay’s backfield could be a real fantasy headache next season. … Kenyan Drake had five top-20 finishes, but all of them came in his final nine games (55.5 percent). He’ll be on the RB2 radar next season if the Dolphins don’t make a major backfield addition this offseason. … Despite the fact that DeMarco Murray started 15 of Tennessee’s 16 games, he still had one fewer top-20 performance than Derrick Henry. The Alabama product will have major breakout potential in 2018. … Adrian Peterson ranked 47th or worst in each of his four games with the Saints. He had three top-12 performances in six games after being traded to the Arizona Cardinals. He’ll likely be released this offseason, however. … Joe Mixon had just three top-20 finishes in his first 14 games as a member of the Bengals. By comparison, Giovani Bernard had three such stat lines in his final four games (without Mixon) of 2018. … Jay Ajayi had just two top-20 finishes in seven games as a member of the Dolphins. He had just one such performance in seven games with the Eagles.
