Cincinnati Bengals running back Bernard Scott was held out practice this week with an ankle injury. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Cincinnati Bengals running back Bernard Scott (ankle) was held out of practice on Wednesday due to injury. Scott is the supposed No. 2 back behind newly acquired BenJarvus Green-Ellis, who looks like he could be in for more work with Scott's absence.

Fantasy Analysis: With most teams going with a two-back system, it seems that you can often find a No. 2 running back capable of production. Either because they can get enough touches on game day or because they have red zone value. At this point, it does not seem like Scott has any sort of fantasy value in the immediate future. There is a chance he works his way into the offense by mid-season, but for now, he is not worth being in your lineup.
