BenJarvus Green Ellis

BenJarvus Green Ellis

Week Nine Analysis:
It's Halloween. Will BenJarvus Green-Ellis give you a full sized candy bar, or a that tube of toothpaste the dentist down the street always gives? BenJarvus Green-Ellis is averaging just 3.2 yards per carry, 44 yards per game, and he hasn't scored in three straight, so he'll do his part to ensure that you have a horrifying Halloween night. However, Miami has handed out seven touchdowns to opposing backs in their last four games alone, and New England backs just devoured them to the tune of 147 rushing yards. He's an ordinary runner, but this is an extraordinarily beatable matchup.

Week Three Analysis:
Look, it's not the Lawfirm's fault that he's not as gifted as Giovani Bernard, or that he's still getting too much work for a misguided organization. He's a lunch-bucket runner on a team whose philosophy is still stuck in the 80's, and it's reflected by his 36 carries to Bernard's 12. However, that slow-it-down, shorten-the-game philosophy actually makes sense if you're trying to keep Aaron Rodgers' high-octane offense on the sidelines. Green Bay is a neutral matchup in terms of yardage, but they've allowed nine rushing scores to opposing backs in their last eight games, so Lawfirm has a solid chance to help fantasy rosters this week.
