A.J. Green rewards fantasy owners with 115 yards in Week 8

John Grieshop

A.J. Green caught three passes for 115 yards against the Jets on Sunday. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

He didn't find the end zone for the first time since Week 5, but A.J. Green managed to haul in three catches for an impressive 115 yards during Cincinnati's 49-9 victory over the Jets. He was targeted seven times, but a handful of his looks were deep passes that couldn't connect or were uncharacteristically dropped by Green. His afternoon was overshadowed by fellow wide receiver Marvin Jones, who caught eight passes for 122 yards and four touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: Considering Green took a back seat to Marvin Jones on Sunday afternoon, it was a good day for fantasy owners. The success of Green's teammate should be good news for fantasy owners in the long run as defenses will need to keep Jones in their peripheral vision moving forward. Green was close to having a bigger afternoon if it weren't for a few well-placed balls from Dalton that he couldn't quite haul in. Green will move forward as the fantasy stud that he is.
