Description: The Ravens signed running back Bernard Scott.
Insight: Scott shouldn't see much time behind Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce, fantasy owners shouldn't be interested in him barring an injury two the guys in front of him on the depth chart.

Description: Cincinnati halfback Bernard Scott has been placed on injured reserve with what is believed to be a torn ACL.
Insight: It's unfortunate for Scott but good for BenJarvus Green-Ellis owners. Scott looked like the better running back in rushing for 40 yards on five carries Sunday to Green-Ellis' 9 for 14 and may have presented a threat to Green-Ellis' starting job if he could have stayed healthy.

Description: Cincinnati halfback Bernard Scott will not be available for Week 3 against Washington. Scott is still recovering from an injured hand.
Insight: With Scott out, BenJarvus Green-Ellis will have virtually no competition for carries in the Bengals' backfield.

Description: Cincinnati halfback Bernard Scott will not be available for Week 2's contest against the Browns. Scott is still recovering from an injured hand.
Insight: With Scott out, BenJarvus Green-Ellis will have virtually no competition for carries in the Bengals' backfield. Based on his performance in Week 1 (18 carries, 91 yards, TD), the Law Firm should be a low-end RB1/top-tier RB2 in most fantasy leagues.
 
9/11/2012 1:58:00 PM
Description: According to Bengals beat writer Joe Reedy, running back Bernard Scott could be ready to return in Week 2.
Insight: Starter BenJarvus Green-Ellis played well in the opener and shouldn't be bothered by the return of Scott. He'll more than likely get the Brian Leonard workload which isn't enough to be fantasy-worthy.
 
9/5/2012 2:52:00 PM
Description: According to Bengals beat writer Joe Reedy, running back Bernard Scott won't play in Week 1 while he is working his way back into game shape. He missed most of camp with a hand injury.
Insight: Add value to BenJarvus Green-Ellis who will have to carry all of the workload in Scott's absence. If the "Law Firm" gets the same work Cedric Benson saw when he was the Bangals primary running back, he could set personal highs in attempts, rushing yards and touchdowns.

Description: Cincinnati Bengals running back Bernard Scott (hand) is questionable for the Bengals first preseason game.
Insight: Barring this turning into a long-term problem, it shouldn't effect his status as the No. 2 back behind BenJarvis Green-Ellis. In three seasons Scott has yet to run for more than 112 attempts in a year while Green-Ellis has averaged 205 carries the past two years in New England. We believe Scott will get more opportunities in 2012, we don't believe it will be an even split. The "Law Firm" will still dominate the Bengals rushing statistics.

Description: According to Zac Jackson of Fox Sports Ohio, the Cincinnati Bengals running game is likely to be "by committee."
Insight: In three seasons Scott has yet to run for more than 112 attempts in a year, while BenJarvis Green-Ellis has averaged 205 carries the past two years in New England. While we believe Scott will get more opportunities in 2012, we don't believe it will be an even split. The "Law Firm" will still dominate the Bengals rushing statistics.

Description: Bengals RB Bernard Scott's "attention to detail" has been called into question by the coaching staff in the past. SOURCE: BENGALS.COM
Insight: Scott only has sixteen receptions in two years and had been unable to pass Brian Leonard as the third-down back. Scott won't take over as the starting tailback if Cedric Benson isn't re-signed, but he could be more involved in the team's new West Coast offense. However, we don't recommend him as a fantasy option.

Description: There are continued doubts that Bengals RB Bernard Scott can become a featured back and touch the ball 20 times per game. SOURCE: CINCINNATI ENQUIRER
Insight: This, of course, all depends on what the team decides to do with Cedric Benson, who is entering free agency. Scott, at times, has shown flashes here and there, but we aren't sure he can last an entire season with his size (5'10/196). Plus, he's no stranger to injuries. If Benson doesn't come back, the team could look on the free agent market and try and grab a between-the-tackles runner. The Enquirer suggests Michael Bush, but we don't see Mike Brown coughing up the money it would take to bring him in.

Description: After missing June practices due to an ankle injury, Bengals RB Bernard Scott is healthy again. SOURCE: BENGALS.COM
Insight: Scott says he has been cutting and running for a month now. Scott should get a bigger role this year, but not enough to make him anything more than Cedric Benson's handcuff.
