Giovani Bernard, More Updated Fantasy Outlook After Joe Mixon's Injury

Following their 34-23 win over the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday, the Cincinnati Bengals received bad news about starting running back Joe Mixon.

Per NFL Network's Tom Pelissero and Mike Garafolo, the Bengals "fear" Mixon is going to need arthroscopic surgery on his knee.

Backup Giovani Bernard is in line for a bigger workload and a more prominent role in the fantasy football realm.

Bernard has primarily been a third-down, pass-catching back throughout his NFL career, but if Mixon misses a significant amount of time, he will garner plenty of early-down work as well.
