Fantasy football sit/start advice, Week 10: A.J. Green

A.J. Green is healthy and ready to go against the Browns in Week 10. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green does not appear to be limited with his toe injury any longer. Green injured his toe after a Week 5 game against the New England Patriots, and then missed three games in which the Bengals went 1-1-1. Green returned to action against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9 and had a solid outing.

Green caught three of the six passes that went his way for 44 yards and a touchdown against the Jaguars. On the season, he has 20 receptions for 358 yards and three touchdowns. He's clearly behind Mohamed Sanu on the stat sheet but then again, Sanu didn't miss three games. Sanu has 39 receptions for 628 yards and four touchdowns on the year.

Fantasy Impact: Green has historically played decent but not great against the Browns, thanks to cornerback Joe Haden covering him for much of those games. That said, he's a week removed his injury and seems ready to have a big game. Fantasy owners can't sit Green when he's healthy, and all indications are that he's healthy. He's a must-start this week against Cleveland's middle-of-the-pack pass defense.
