BenJarvus Green-Ellis off to hot start for fantasy owners against Steelers

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

BenJarvus Green-Ellis is finding plenty of room to run early on in Week 7. We break down the fantasy implications.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis is already racking up yards on the ground against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night. He has eight carries on 44 yards so far through one quarter of play.

Cedric Peerman did manage to vulture a touchdown from The Law Firm in the red zone, but Green-Ellis remains in control of the workload.

Fantasy Impact: Aside from the slight annoyance of Peerman's presence near the goal line, this is a promising start from Green-Ellis. The Steelers are yielding under 100 yards per game on the ground in 2012, but Green-Ellis is well on his way to breaking that mark.

With the momentum the ground game has right now, the Bengals need to continue feeding Green-Ellis. He's struggled in recent weeks, so they need to keep pushing the run game with the way things are playing out.
