Tom Brady and Bruce Arians both personally recruited Bernard, one of the NFL’s best receiving backs, after his release from Cincinnati. Another weapon for Brady and the Super Bowl champs.
The Buccaneers have been looking for a pass catching running back this offseason and they landed one in Gio. While he’s not elite, Bernard is a reliable pass catcher out of the backfield, averaging over 40 catches per season in his career and 350+ yards receiving. He should have the inside track to Tom Brady’s pass catching back which is a role that can produce fantasy value.
