Bengals Beat: 'No' chance BenJarvus Green-Ellis beats out Jeremy Hill

Paul Dehner, Twitter - [Full Article]

Bengals beat writer Paul Dehner said that BenJarvus Green-Ellis has "no" chance to beat out Jeremy Hill and that he expects 10-15 carries per game for Hill.

Dehner provided additional thoughts on the Bengals' RB situation: Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill are slotted as the starters. Cedric Peerman is valuable on special teams and I'd have a hard time seeing them say goodbye to Rex Burkhead. The Law Firm could still stick around depending on how the fullback situation plays out or if an injury occurs to any of the other four. He's definitely on the bubble, though.

Fantasy Impact: 

We currently project 9.3 carries per game for Hill, making him an interesting RB3/RB4 type available in the middle rounds. His stock took a bit of a hit when he was listed behind BJGE on the team's initial depth chart, but prospective fantasy owners shouldn't worry too much about that.
