BenJarvus Green-Ellis RB CIN Nov 04 '126 Comments

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.

At last! The law firm scored! +6 in Fantasy! Now they need to give him the ball on more scores.

i spent a 2nd round draft pick on this dud - was so high on him ffs, cant wait to cut him

I can't cut him either. He's the only every down back I have. Been trying to work with Indy backs and Ryan Mathews has been hit or miss, mostly miss. I grabbed MJD hoping he will return for the playoffs, but I hear you.
