RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis reached agreement on a three-year deal with the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact: 

For a time, it looked like Michael Bush was the best bet to land in Cincinnati, but instead the Bengals turn to the effective yet unexciting BenJarvus Green-Ellis. After a solid 1008 yards (4.4 YPC) in 2010, Green-Ellis only managed 667 yards (3.7 YPC) in 2011. Fantasy-wise, his main value was as a TD threat -- he found the endzone 24 times in two years. The Bengals are not the Patriots, so the Law Firm will have a tough time matching those TD numbers in 2012. However, he should get more consistent carries unless he falls into a timeshare with Bernard Scott.
