BenJarvus Green-Ellis misses practice Thursday, fantasy status in doubt

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

BenJarvus Green-Ellis sat out Thursday's practice with an illness. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cincinnati Bengals RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis (illness) was held out of practice on Thursday. It's one of the few times this season he's been on the injury report, and he's not expected to miss the regular season finale against the Baltimore Ravens.

Green--Ellis has 1,094 yards and six touchdowns on the year, with 3.9 YPC.

Fantasy Impact: Green-Ellis has been one of the most reliable fantasy backs down the stretch with 100+ yards in four out of five games, but he turned into a pumpkin in Week 16, putting up just 14 yards on 15 carries in the win over Pittsburgh.

With news that the Bengals plan to play their starters this week, look for a bounce-back performance from the Law Firm.
