BenJarvus Green-Ellis injury update: Fantasy timeshare coming with Gio Bernard

Andy Lyons

BenJarvus Green-Ellis is a little banged up, but shouldn't have any limitations. We break down the fantasy implications.

Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis (ankle) is listed as probable to face the Browns on Sunday. He was limited in Wednesday's practice, but didn't miss any portion on Thursday and Friday.

He has two rushing TDs on the season, but he's been bad so far. The Law Firm has a paltry 2.8 yards per carry and only 129 yards on the season.

The Bengals are throwing the ball around quite a bit with their new-look offense. Tyler Eifert has helped open up the middle of the field and A.J. Green is probably the best receiver in the AFC. Worse yet for BJGE, rookie back Giovani Bernard has been tremendous and the team has been trying to get him touches in space.

The Browns have a solid run defense with a solid front seven, so this could be a bad game for Green-Ellis.

Fantasy impact: There's really no way owners can count on Green-Ellis. He doesn't get enough snaps and has no big-play ability. Bernard is more of a flex this week.
