Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green caught seven passes for 52 yards and no touchdowns in the Week 4 loss to the Cleveland Browns. It's a shame to watch Green's talent go to waste in a Bengals offense that doesn't take advantage of his ability to stretch the field. Granted, Green was covered by the Browns excellent cornerback Joe Haden, but Green hasn't flourished since his big game in Week 1. He is still at top receiver, but you have to question whether he can consistently produce WR1 numbers with Andy Dalton as his quarterback.
Fantasy impact: Green's big Week 1 game may go down as his best as the past three games have produced lackluster stats for fantasy owners. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has limitations and Green unfortunately will suffer because of it. It's a shame too since Green could put up big time numbers with a quarterback who could throw it down the field. He is still a must-start, but fantasy owners will just have to accept Andy Dalton's limitations as part of the Green package. The Bengals will face the undefeated New England Patriots in Week 5.
