Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis called in sick to work on Wednesday, but should be able to return before needing a doctors note. Green-Ellis did not practice because of an illness, and his status will have to be monitored but this should be early enough in the week to note effect his start against the Giants on Sunday.
Law Firm has 487 yards rushing in eight games this season.
Fantasy Take: Things aren't as bright for Green-Ellis in Cincinnati as they were in New England, averaging only 3.4 yards per carry and scoring just three touchdowns. However, it's difficult to find many backs that don't have to share the ball these days and there is no competition with the Bengals.
The Giants are 19th against the run and 28th in yards per carry allowed. Green-Ellis rates as a low-end RB2.
