2014 Outlook
Entering his third, and most likely final season with the Bengals, BenJarvus Green-Ellis remains a fantasy mystery. When no one believed he was for real, he followed up his breakout 2010 season with a decent 2011 and 2012 seasons with 11 touchdowns and 1,000 yards rushing, respectively. But the writing was on the wall in 2013, as Green-Ellis, never known for dynamic running ability, mucked his way to a career-low 3.4 yards per carry average. Heralded for his reliable ball control and goal line prowess, Green-Ellis began ceding carries to the younger, more explosive Giovani Bernard around midseason. The Bengals made an even bigger statement when they drafted running back Jeremy Hill in the second round. Should Green-Ellis be able to salvage a roster spot with the Bengals, he could be lurking in the weeds waiting for an opportunity. Bernard and Hill are still very young players on a playoff contender, though. So, don't underestimate Green-Ellis' value as a reliable runner inside the red zone should he be called upon. Should Bernard or Hill suffer a long-term injury, a sly fantasy owner might still be able to squeeze a last little bit of value out of the “Law Firm.”

Comment: Rumors are swilling that the Law Firm could get released this pre-season. Stay tuned…

News From The Past 90 Days
Law Firm gets the boot
Bengals release running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Aug 29, 3:16 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
The moment running back Jeremy Hill was selected in the second round of this year's draft, the writing appeared to be on the wall for veteran BenJarvus Green-Ellis. That was confirmed Friday when the team opted to release him. (Cincinnati Enquirer)

FFToday's Take: We figured this was coming and the Bengals made it official today. BJGE, 29, was set to make $3 million this year. Cedric Peerman and Rex Burkhead will make the final roster as backups to Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. Green-Ellis may catch on with another team but he's not likely to be a fantasy factor in 2014.


Jeremy Hill's 26 touches a learning experience
Bengals missing many RBs in final preseason game
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Aug 29, 8:00 am

Cincinnati Bengals
The second-round pick from LSU touched the ball 26 times for 160 yards -- including 20 for 123 in the first half alone. Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said he utilized Jeremy Hill so much just so he could get a feel for what a heavy workload could be like in the regular season. (Cincinnati.com)

FFToday's Take: It's unusual for a player expected to contribute on a regular basis to get so much work in the final preseason game. However, the Bengals were also thin at the running back position with BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Cedric Peerman and Rex Burkhead out with injury last night. Hill is locked in as Bernard's backup and should see 8-10 touches per week.
