BenJarvus Green-Ellis is expected to suit up for the Cincinnati Bengals against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday despite being held out of practice Thursday due to illness. The running back was able to practice fully Friday, and was listed as probable on the team's Week 17 injury report.
The Bengals have clinched a wild card spot in the AFC, and as a result may limit playing time for starters to keep them fresh for the playoffs. The team has not indicated whether or not Green-Ellis will be limited.
Fantasy Impact: Green-Ellis will not be physically limited by anything this week, but fantasy owners should worry about his potential workload. He has rushed for over 100 yards in four of his last six games. Despite a dismal performance in Week 16, it is clear that Green-Ellis is one of the most important pieces of the Bengals' offense. Keep him in your starting lineup this week at your own risk.
