Green-Ellis totaled only 25 yards on 14 carries, for a 1.8-yard average. He did get the majority of the touches, though, with rookie Giovani Bernard carrying the ball only four times.
Fantasy impact: The touchdown -- a five-yard run in the third quarter -- salvaged any sort of value out of Green-Ellis' fantasy day, since he would have scored only two points without it. Bernard added only one reception on two targets to his four rushes, so his preseason hype should probably be tempered until we see the Bengals look to him a little more often.
Green-Ellis is owned in 83 percent of Yahoo! leagues, but almost has to score a touchdown to have much relevance for fantasy owners. He's fairly tough to trust going forward.
