Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 4: A.J. Green could erupt vs. Dolphins

After back-to-back duds by A.J. Green, expect him to bounce back in a big way Thursday night at the expense of Miami.

The Cincinnati Bengals are in the midst of a two-game losing streak in part because of A.J. Green enduring a mini-slump.

Green has gotten 19 targets over the past two games, but has only converted them into 10 grabs for 115 yards and no scores. That also included a brutal drop during Sunday's loss to the Denver Broncos, which would have extended a fourth-quarter drive with the Bengals trailing by just one score.

Despite his recent woes, Green remains a must-start in fantasy leagues. His upside in this offense remains far too high to ever keep on your bench, and he is always liable to explode for 100-plus yards and multiple scores. He also gets to face a Miami Dolphins defense this week that has allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to wide receivers in 2016.

Fantasy Impact: Yahoo! has Green as the second-ranked wide receiver for Week 4. That just confirms Green's must-start status this week and going forward, so do not think about benching him anytime soon.
