Bengals | BenJarvus Green-Ellis possibly on his way out?

Tue, 27 May 2014 11:22:22 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis may have an uphill battle to make the team this year, according to Bengals.com editor Geoff Hobson. The Bengals will probably only keep four running backs, including Cedric Peerman, who has proven to be very valuable on special teams. After drafting Jeremy Hill, a roster battle may take place between Green-Ellis and Rex Burkhead, who offensive coordinator Hue Jackson likes a lot. Green-Ellis turns 29 in July.

Bengals | Picking up the pace offensively

Thu, 22 May 2014 14:38:38 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson wants to implement an up-tempo offense and intends to be heavily committed to the running game to set up the pass. Bengals OT Andrew Whitworth said the team is planning to get as many snaps in as they can.

Fantasy Tip: A more conservative offensive approach will improve the value of Cincy's running backs, with Giovani Bernard standing to have the best fantasy season. BenJarvus Green-Ellis shouldn't be written off just yet, since rookie Jeremy Hill having a fantasy-worthy role isn't a lock. Andy Dalton should become more efficient, but that isn't necessarily a good thing for fantasy value. Ultimately, WR A.J. Green remains the only weapon with consistent appeal.

Bengals | Giovani Bernard expects complicated playbook

Thu, 06 Feb 2014 09:12:59 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard said he expects a wild playbook from new offensive coordinator Hue Jackson in 2014. "For me and Benny, I think we've done a good job thus far. I think we can continue to keep doing a good job," Bernard said. "We just got to go into it with an open mind, and he's (Jackson) going to create this craziest playbook ever, but it's going to be fun. I'm excited for it." Jackson is expected to move the Bengals to a more ground-and-pound offensive approach including Bernard and RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

Bengals | Two running backs on verge of milestones

Sun, 15 Dec 2013 01:45:05 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RBs Benjarvus Green-Ellis and Giovani Bernard are the first Bengals duo to run for over 600 yards each since 1988, when Ickey Woods and James Brooks helped power Cincinnati to its second Super Bowl. Only once since 1992 have the Bengals had two backs with 160 carries or more in a season, but Green-Ellis and Bernard are on pace to join Kenny Watson and Rudi Johnson as the second duo to accomplish it. In 2007, Watson had 178 carries to Johnson's 170.
