It was business as usual for Green, who, despite the modest totals, still led the Bengals in catches and targets in a pass-heavy game plan. Green was also targeted at the goal line, but he could not cash-in while in tight coverage. Quarterback Andy Dalton threw toward Green's direction on 14 of his 45 attempts, but could not pad his yardage totals despite that.
Fantasy Spin: It was a more normalized performance for Green after posting 116 yards and six yards in his last two games versus the Steelers. Ike Taylor and company have proven to be a difficult matchup for Green, and fantasy owners will be happier to see Green have greener pastures versus the Packers next week. He is a lock to lead the team in targets, and is one of the better receivers in the league at doing something with them when they come his way. As a result, Green remains a high-upside WR1, and should be penned in that slot without a second guess.
