Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green had a monster first half Sunday against the Detroit Lions with four catches for 135 yards and one score. Grabbing all four of his targets, Green's helped Cincinnati out to a 14-10 lead at halftime.
Most of Green's production came on an 82-yard bomb down the sideline. Green broke a tackle and was able to stroll into the end zone for the longest score of his career.
Green's production also translated to a nice first half for Andy Dalton with his 172 yards and two scores, good for a 140.5 passer rating.
Fantasy impact: Too big. Too fast. Too strong. Thedon't have anyone who can cover Green and he's been running a lot of routes down the field. The star receiver has been more of a boom-or-bust option in fantasy, but there was little doubt that he was going to have a big day in the dome.
Next week, he'll get the Jets, who have been solid throughout the year in keeping top receivers in check. Obviously, there's no doubt he belongs in your lineup every week.
