Bengals RB Benjarvus Green-Ellis slowed by sore foot

The Bengals top two running backs, BenJarvus Green-Ellis @TheLawFirmBJGE (sore foot) and Bernard Scott (hand), are both expected to miss the team's second preseason game with injury.

Fantasy Analysis:

Scott's injury has lingered for a bit, while the Law Firm's situation appears new, but also not terribly serious as he is expected to practice later this week. The top two running backs on Cincinnati's depth chart could ultimately (maybe) end up in a time-share situation, but Green-Ellis is the popular pick to receive more carries and also be the red-zone back. If either back is to miss significant time the other back would see a big jump in value, especially Scott. With second-year weapons in quarterback Andy Dalton and wide receiver A.J. Green looking to improve, this could be a good offense and the running backs should be on rosters in all leagues. As for Green-Ellis specifically, he's a favorite RB2 sleeper for some , but this could ultimately be a dicey situation for fantasy owners.
