Fantasy football start/sit, Week 11: How to handle Bengals WR A.J. Green vs. Broncos

The Broncos bolster an elite secondary, and A.J. Green has struggled to produce this season.

The Cincinnati Bengals finally got A.J. Green the ball in Week 10, though his 115 yards and one score were not enough to overcome the Tennessee Titans.

That was Green’s first game with 100-plus yards in a month and just the third time he’s hit that mark in nine games this season. He has failed to top 80 yards receiving in six of nine games this season. Take away a 70-yard touchdown against the Titans last week, and Green has failed to break 50 yards receiving in four straight games.

It’s safe to say he’s one of the biggest fantasy busts of 2017, and things won’t be getting any easier against the Denver Broncos in Week 11. Don’t expect much of anything from him and this Bengals offense in Denver against an elite secondary featuring Aqib Talib and Chris Harris.

Fantasy Impact: Green will face a Broncos defense allowing the third-fewest fantasy points to receivers this season. Sadly, this is an easy call to bench Green in Week 11.
