Benjarvus Green-Ellis

Looks pretty good in limited action thus far. Didn't know who he was until tonight, but looks like a tough runner in a terribly banged up backfield.

The thought crossed my mind as well...until I realized his action came during what amounted to a preseason game. Denver can't stop anyone, and he wasn't nearly as productive as Morris was. Does look tough, though, and with Maroney on IR...I still think it is a long shot, though, for him to be a better fantasy option than others on the waiver wire. Knowing Belicheat, the guy may be inactive for the rest of the season...who knows.

For my dynasty leagues he caught my attention, Maroney could continually be injured so maybe he carves out a role in the future, Pats don't care about draft stock and Sammy Morris and Faulk are no spring chickens...He might be someone you have to wait on for awhile, but I think he provides long term value...Honestly for this year it all depends on Morris' injury, but again he's a RB, so he's certainly worth a look see just in case.

Hard to judge against the 25th ranked run defense. Depends on how banged up Morris and Jordan are too.

BGE was a very good back on college. I remember watching him at Ole Miss and thinking he was a very tough runner who could succeed in the NFL. If Morris is injured for an extended period of time BGE could have some good value.

I agree. I think he might be good for a week or so but once Jordan and Morris come back this situation becomes muddled again.

Yeh, I get the feeling the rest of this season will be RBBC - not much fantasy value here. Interesting prospect for next year though if Maroney has worn out his welcome in Beantown.
