Cincinnati Bengals' star wide receiver A.J. Green caught four passes for 46 yards and his third touchdown of the season in the team's 34-30 win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 3. The third-year star out of Georgia is now averaging just under 74 yards receiving per game this season.
Fantasy impact: There is no doubt who the number-one receiver in the Bengals' passing game is these days. With that in mind, the team did add running back Giovani Bernard and tight end Tyler Eifert via the draft in the off-season. That means quarterback Andy Dalton has other options at his disposal that weren't available in years past. Though some might argue that this would detract from Green's value in the sense, the fact is a player with his gifts and abilities can only benefit from having the field opened up by a more threatening cast around him. Fantasy owners who are used to seeing Green go for 100 yards receiving regularly might be slightly disappointed by his numbers in Week 3, but overall Green should be able to continue justify his status as an early-round pick in fantasy drafts as the season goes on.
