2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
With Cedric Benson having worn out his welcome in Cincinnati despite having produced three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, the Bengals signed former Patriot Green-Ellis to take over as the teamís starting running back. Green-Ellis and Benson are remarkably similar players in both the running and passing games but Green-Ellis has much better ball protection skills, having never fumbled during his four years in New England. In essence, much of Green-Ellisí appeal is that he doesnít make mistakes since he isnít a big play threat and his ability as a receiver leaves much to be desired. He derived much of his fantasy production in New England from his ability to find the end zone (24 touchdowns over the last two seasons) and churn out yards in the fourth quarter. Letís just say those opportunities wonít be as bountiful now that heís in Cincinnati. The Bengals have said they want to go with more of a committee approach so The Law Firm is unlikely to approach the 21.7 touches per game that Benson averaged over the last three seasons. However, if the Bengals liked Bernard Scott, they would have handed him the starting job and not signed BJGE. Add it all up and Green-Ellis rates as a lower tier RB3 who isnít risky but also lacks upside.

Giovani Bernard taking first-team snaps
Second-round pick Jeremy Hill lined up as the second team running back behind Giovani Bernard. BenJarvus Green-Ellis, the starter the last two years, had no comment. (

FF Today's Take: Many believe Green-Ellis is a lock to remain a Bengal in the final season of his contract, but that may not be the case. Bernard is the clear starter and Hill will be his powerful complement for the foreseeable future. Cincinnati loves what Cedric Peerman brings on special teams, meaning Law Firm may be in a battle with 2013 sixth-rounder Rex Burkhead (another young player the team likes) at a position where most teams carry no more than four players.
