Description: Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis missed two days of practice, but returned to the field on Friday.
Insight: Green-Ellis has put up three touchdowns in the past two weeks, but has yet to crack the 100-yard mark this season.
 
11/14/2013 1:46:00 PM
Description: Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis has been playing through a broken thumb since Week 2, according to the team's site.
Insight: Green-Ellis has been losing ground to the more talented Giovani Bernard, but he'll still do the heavy lifting for this team. Bernard isn't built for 25 carries a game. Its a nice combination of power and speed.
 
10/6/2013 6:04:00 PM
Description: Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis had 67 rushing yards and a touchdown on 19 carries (3.5 ypc) Sunday against New England.
Insight: Green-Ellis has been losing ground to the more talented Giovani Bernard, but he may have made some of that up Sunday. Bernard had 13 carries for 62 yards (4.8 ypc) but lost a fumble. The Law Firm has just 209 yards on 71 carries (2.9 ypc) this season but he does have three scores.
 
9/27/2013 2:05:00 PM
Description: Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis was a full participant in the last two practices and is expected to play Sunday.
Insight: Green-Ellis is on track to play, but given his production to date, 2.8 ypc, he's not as good an option as rookie Giovani Bernard (5.0 ypc).
 
9/25/2013 4:23:00 PM
Description: Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis was limited in Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury.
Insight: Green-Ellis is on track to play, but given his production to date, 2.8 ypc, he's not as good an option as rookie Giovani Bernard.
 
9/8/2013 4:59:00 PM
Description: Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis outcarried rookie Giovani Bernard 14-4 in the season opener but only outgained him by three yards.
Insight: This is why Green-Ellis will eventually be giving up his job to Bernard. The Law Firm averaged 1.8 yards per carry and finished with 25 yards, though he did salvage his day with a touchdown. Bernard had 22 rushing yards and caught one pass for eight yards.
 
7/25/2013 9:43:00 PM
Description: Bengals OC Jay Gruden hinted that the team could end up going with a 50-50 split at running back between BenJarvus Green-Ellis and rookie Giovani Bernard.
Insight: Green-Ellis produced his second career 1,000-yard season in 2012, his first with the Bengals, but he rushed for just 3.9 ypc and scored six touchdowns. Bernard, a second-rounder in the 2013 NFL Draft, is a more elusive back who is a much better receiver than Green-Ellis.
 
1/5/2013 9:20:00 PM
Description: Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis racked up 63 yards on 11 carries Saturday in a loss to Houston.
Insight: Green-Ellis missed last week's regular season finale against Baltimore after tweaking his hamstring in warmups. The injury didn't seem to affect the Law Firm's play on Saturday as Green-Ellis averaged a very respectable 5.7 yards per carry.
 
1/4/2013 3:02:00 PM
Description: Cincinnati halfback BenJarvus Green-Ellis (hamstring) was a limited participant for both Wednesday and Thursday's practices, but a full participant on Friday and should be ready to go in Saturday's AFC Wild Card Playoff against Houston.
Insight: Green-Ellis put together an excellent second half of the season, rushing for 557 yards over his final six games. The Texans ranked seventh against the run yielding just 97.5 ypg. so the going is likely to be tough.
 
1/3/2013 2:48:00 PM
Description: Cincinnati halfback BenJarvus Green-Ellis, who tweaked his hamstring during warmups for Week 17, was a limited participant for both Wednesday and Thursday's practices, but should be ready to go in Saturday's AFC Wild Card Playoff against Houston.
Insight: Green-Ellis put together an excellent second half of the season, rushing for 557 yards over his final six games. The Texans ranked seventh against the run yielding just 97.5 ypg. so the going is likely to be tough.
 
1/2/2013 3:55:00 PM
Description: Cincinnati halfback BenJarvus Green-Ellis tweaked his hamstring during warmups and didn't play last Sunday against the Ravens, but practiced on Wednesday and should be ready to go in Saturday's AFC Wild Card Playoff against Houston.
Insight: Green-Ellis put together an excellent second half of the season, rushing for 557 yards over his final six games. The Texans ranked seventh against the run yielding just 97.5 ypg. so the going is likel to be tough.
 
12/30/2012 1:18:00 PM
Description: Cincinnati halfback BenJarvus Green-Ellis tweaked his hamstring during warmups and won't play Sunday against the Ravens.
Insight: If the Bengals hadn't already clinched a playoff berth, Green-Ellis would probably be out there. But with Cincy's fate as the AFC's sixth seed already sealed, the Bengals can afford to rest him this week. Backup Brian Leonard should see most of the carries Sunday against Baltimore.
 
12/23/2012 5:43:00 PM
Description: Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran into a wall Sunday against the Steelers. He didn't even pick up one yard per carry, settling for 14 yards on 15 rushes in the game.
Insight: Green-Ellis has carved up inferior opponents -- Kansas City, Oakland, San Diego, Dallas, Philadelphia -- for 543 yards and three touchdowns over his last five games but a strong run defense shut him down Sunday.
 
Hot12/9/2012 5:12:00 PM
Description: Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 89 yards on 12 carries Sunday against Dallas and has 437 over his last four games.
Insight: Green-Ellis only had 537 rushing yards in his first nine games. Fantasy owners have every reason to keep rolling with the Cincinnati running back.
 
Hot12/2/2012 8:04:00 PM
Description: Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis powered his way to 118 rushing yards Sunday against the Chargers.
Insight: Green-Ellis has rushed for over 100 yards in three straight games. He's on pace to finish the year with 1,176 yards rushing, which would be over 100 yards higher than his previous career-high set in 2010 as a member of the New England Patriots.
 
11/25/2012 5:21:00 PM
Description: Cincinnati halfback BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 129 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries Sunday, his second consecutive 100-yard game.
Insight: Oakland has been kind to opposing rushers this season (remember Doug Martin?), and Green-Ellis was the latest back to take advantage of that generosity. He'll have a much tougher matchup in Week 13 against San Diego.
 
11/18/2012 7:20:00 PM
Description: Cincinnati halfback BenJarvus Green-Ellis enjoyed his first 100-yard rushing game of the season Sunday in a win over Kansas City.
Insight: He also scored a touchdown, his fourth of the season. He certainly hasn't been as prolific for the Bengals as he was during his tenure in New England but you could definitely do a lot worse than Green-Ellis for a flex/RB2.
 
11/11/2012 11:37:00 AM
Description: Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis returned from illness to practice Friday and is active for Sunday's game against the New York Giants.
Insight: The Giants are yielding 132.7 ypg on the ground making "The Law Firm" a solid fantasy option in Week 10.

11/4/2012 6:03:00 PM
Description: After a four-game touchdown drought Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis finally returned to the end zone on Sunday.
Insight: Don't get too excited. Green-Ellis only had 56 yards on 17 carries. He still hasn't rushed for 100 yards in a game this season and is probably a flex option at best.
