BenJarvus Green-Ellis only averaged 3.8 yards per carry against the Steelers. We break down the fantasy implications.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis finished the first quarter with eight carries for 44 yards, looking like he was in for a big night. Unfortunately he ended the game with just 18 touches for 69 yards.
The Law Firm also saw Cedric Peerman vulture a goal line carry for a touchdown. Green-Ellis hasn't scored since Week 3.
Fantasy Impact: If he's not getting goal line carries, what good is Green-Ellis going to do your team? He's failed to punch the ball into the end zone on several occasions where he's received multiple carries, so the Bengals might be losing faith in his red zone potential.
Cincinnati is off next week, so you'll need to look for a replacement if Green-Ellis is one of your regular starters. His value does not look promising at this point.
