'Tough call' for BenJarvus Green-Ellis to make final roster

Bengals - [Full Article]

OC Hue Jackson likes Rex Burkhead a lot and I think he’s one of the many reasons why it’s such a tough call for BenJarvus Green-Ellis to be on the Opening Day roster. Burkhead, the 2013 sixth-round pick from Nebraska, was active for only one game as a rookie but he showed them last preseason and in practice that he’s faster and more athletic than you think.

Fantasy Impact: 

If Green-Ellis is cut, Jeremy Hill's stock should rise due to certainty of situation. Giovani Bernard will see a bigger role in 2014, but BJGE finished as the #31 RB last year, so Hill should be a RB3/flex type if The Law Firm is out of the way.
