Shonn Greene continues to show little production in the preseason. We break down the fantasy implications.

Shonn Greene rushed for 47 yards on 13 carries during Sunday night's preseason game between the New York Jets and the Carolina Panthers on Sunday night. Greene now has 29 carries for 94 yards this preseason, giving him an average of just 3.24 yards per touch.

Analysis: Greene finally broke the 1,000-yard mark last year. Fantasy owners continue to believe in him, but Greene has not shown much so far in 2012. He is a tough runner, but he isn't finding much room to run in the Jets offense at this point. It is only preseason, but there's reason to be concerned. Bilal Powell is currently listed as the third-down back for the Jets, cutting into Greene's workload. Greene is the goal line back, though, so his value remains the same. You probably don't want him as your RB2, but you could do worse.
