News: 6 days agoBernard did not log a rush attempt, secured his only target for three yards and returned one kickoff for 18 yards in the Buccaneers' 30-10 win over the Giants on Monday night.

Spin: Bernard logged a return opportunity for the second straight game and played six special-teams snaps overall alongside eight plays from scrimmage. The veteran back has at least one reception in every game this season but has now failed to log a rush attempt in three of the past five contests, leaving him as only a longshot fantasy option in very deep formats.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: Bernard signed with Buccaneers after eight seasons with the Bengals. Bernard ranked 26th among RBs with 171 touches last season and, while that may not seem like much, he totaled 174 during the 2018-19 seasons. Bernard's production was all over the map, however, as he reached 20 fantasy points in four games after Joe Mixon's Week 6 season-ending injury, but was in single digits the other six weeks. Bernard is still a capable receiver (81% catch rate, 6.1 YPT in 2020), but has struggled badly as a rusher recently (his 3.4 YPC is fourth worst and his 1.5 YAC eighth worst among 57 RBs with 200-plus carries since 2018). The 29-year-old will see the passing down work, but Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones II will handle most of the carries in Tampa Bay. Bernard is worth a late pick in PPR.
