A.J. Green puts up 151 yards and touchdown for fantasy owners in loss

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

In a game vs. the Baltimore Ravens where the passing game sputtered, Green still produced. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green was one of the few bright spots in a game that was dominated by the defensive side of the football.

Though quarterback Andy Dalton has been aided by a deep receiving corps, it was his No. 1 that he learned to turn to often after a tumultuous afternoon. Green finished the day with eight catches for 151 yards and a touchdown. His highlight of the afternoon came as time expired in regulation, after reeling-in a game-tying Hail Mary catch that was initially tipped in the air. That catch put Green over the 100-yard mark for the fifth consecutive game, marking the first time any player has done that in Bengals franchise history.

Fantasy Spin: This is why Green's fantasy owners love him. In a day where little goes right offensively, he can still put up monster numbers to keep his owner's fantasy matchups intact. Next week, versus Joe Haden and a Browns team that held him to just seven catches and 51 yards in Week 3, Green will have his work cut out for him. But with that said, Green is a must-start in fantasy leagues of all formats and can be comfortably placed in WR1 slots.
