BenJarvus Green-Ellis was held to 58 yards on 17 carries, but scored a two-yard touchdown and caught two passes for a net loss of three yards in the Bengals' Week 9 loss to the Broncos.
Green-Ellis' inability to threaten defenses on the ground is holding back the Bengals' offense, but OC Jay Gruden keeps giving him the rock. Green-Ellis maintains fantasy value based only on the fact that he generally gets volume and offers week-to-week goal-line touchdown potential. On the season, Green-Ellis is averaging 3.44 yards per carry and is on pace for 978 rushing yards, six TDs, and 20 receptions. Try to trade him if you can this week.
