A.J. Green returns to form, rewards fantasy owners with 103 yards and a touchdown

Tom Szczerbowski

A.J. Green managed 103 yards and a touchdown against the Bills in Week 6. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

Fantasy owners found some relief as A.J. Green injected some life into their lineups by posting up more than 100 receiving yards for the first time since Week 1. Green hauled in six catches for 103 yards and touchdown, leading all Bengals receivers on Sunday. His resurgence was largely due to quarterback Andy Dalton's improved efficiency under center.

Fantasy impact: It was a performance that was long overdue for the stud wide receiver. Green has been held back by Cincinnati's inconsistent offense for most of the season, but Dalton and the Bengals running game were able to work their way down the field consistently all afternoon. Fellow wide receiver Marvin Jones helped take some pressure off of Green by creating 71 yards off of just three catches. These are the performances expect out of Green. Expect strong numbers against the Lions in Week 7, who just allowed 126 yards to Browns receiver Josh Gordon on Sunday.
