A.J. Green, Marvin Jones both find the end zone for fantasy owners

The Bengals receivers both scored Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receivers Marvin Jones and A.J. Green led the team to victory Sunday. Both receivers caught touchdown passes in the team's 42-28 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Green had six catches for 72 yards in Sunday's game. He scored on a 9-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Andy Dalton early in the fourth quarter. Jones, meanwhile, had his first score since his four-touchdown game in Week 8, catching three balls for 60 yards. His 29-yard touchdown in the first quarter kicked off the game's scoring.

Fantasy impact: This game was basically who these players are -- Green can generally be counted on (Week 11's seven-yard performance excluded) for 70-plus yards and/or a touchdown, maintaining his top-five status among fantasy receivers. Meanwhile, Jones is a hit-or-miss receiver. He topped 10 fantasy points for the fourth time this season, but he had only seven combined fantasy points in a four-game stretch from Week 9 to 13.

Green is obviously an every-week starter down the stretch. Jones, meanwhile, can be used, as the Bengals play some struggling defenses down the stretch, but anyone relying on him for much could well be disappointed.
