A.J. Green reminded fantasy owners that he's a true WR1 in all formats. Green caught six passes for 155 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's Bengals win over the Lions. His biggest play of the afternoon was an 82 yard touchdown early in the first quarter. Green owners could have seen even bigger numbers, but Andy Dalton had several under-thrown passes that Green couldn't adjust to.
Fantasy impact: After Week 1, Green went through a stretch of underwhelming fantasy performances. However, it appears as though he's back in the elite WR1 discussion. Despite the occasional struggles from his quarterback, Green is benefiting from Dalton's ability to spread the ball around much more efficiently. Fellow receiver Marvin Jones was able to reach the end zone for a second week in a row, and rookie tight end Tyler Eifert managed his first career touchdown. Green should continue to post big numbers as long as Dalton continues to feed other weapons around him. Green faces the Jets on Sunday and continues to be a top WR1.
