Cincinnati Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis had a weak game on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

The efforts of Cincinnati Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis were stifled by the Miami Dolphins in Week 5. On Sunday, BJGE carried the ball nine times but only amassed 14 yards. He was a complete non-factor in Sunday's loss to Miami.

Fantasy Analysis: Green-Ellis, like a number of offensive players for the Bengals, are as inconsistent as it gets. As far as Cincinnati players go, the only must-start on the roster is wide receiver A.J. Green. Green-Ellis hasn't had a terrific start to the 2012 season, but owners may be inclined to continue starting him. When it comes to "The Law Firm," I'd advise you to stray away from the name and what you invested, but rather play the match-ups.
