The Bengals have 16 inactive players tonight, including BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Jermaine Gresham. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Cincinnati Bengals will have 16 players inactive for Thursday night's preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. The biggest names include RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis, TE Jermaine Gresham, RB Bernard Scott, DE Carlos Dunlap, DE Robert Geathers, LB Rey Maualuga, CB Dre Kirkpatrick, CB Adam Jones and CB Jason Allen.

Analysis: BJGE has been bothered by a sore foot for most of camp, and missing his second straight preseason game is mostly a precaution. With both him and Scott out, Brian Leonard will be getting the start at RB Gresham had a minor knee sprain in his last game, and it's not expected to knock him out of the regular season. With the big TE target out, this game is a chance for someone in the receiver logjam to step up and claim the No. 2 WR spot. The Bengals' secondary depth is still paper thin, nothing new there.
