Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green put on a stellar performance on Thursday night in the win over the Baltimore Ravens. Green caught five passes from quarterback Andy Dalton for a total of 69 yards and three scores, which all came in the first half. Throughout the first two games of the season, the fourth overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft has 11 catches for 161 yards and four touchdowns, ranking him among the top fantasy options at this point in all scoring formats. Keep rolling with him in your fantasy lineup as he should continue to get plenty of looks from Dalton and will likely continue to capitalize on being the first option in Bill Lazor's offensive schemes.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green should be considered a must-start option on Thursday night when his team hosts the Baltimore Ravens. Green was as efficient as they come from a fantasy perspective in Week 1, catching six passes for 92 yards and a touchdown in the win over the Colts. He is the favorite target of quarterback Andy Dalton and the abundance of passes thrown his way raises his PPR appeal. However, his ability to accumulate big yards and find the end zone consistently also gives him value in standard formats as well. As a result, Green should be deployed in the starting lineups in all fantasy leagues this week, regardless of scoring rules.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green is set to open a new season in Week 1 at Indianapolis on Sunday. He is looking for better results early in the season, as well as away from home. In 2017 he posted just 32 receptions, 433 yards and four scores while averaging 13.5 yards per catch on the road. In addition, while he had 20 grabs across three games in the month of September in 2017, he averaged a season-low 12.6 yards per catch and just one touchdowns in the month. He faced the Colts on Oct. 29, last season and was limited to 27 yards, but he was able to find the end zone. Green remains fantasy elite in standard play and legit DFS option until further notice.
