Fantasy impact: Green had a huge Week 1, catching nine passes for 162 yards and two touchdowns against the Chicago Bears. Since then, though, he has been held to 22 catches and 199 yards total in the weeks since, with only a Week 3 touchdown salvaging his value. Green has gone for between 41 and 61 yards in each game since Week 1.
It's been a very disappointing four weeks for fantasy owners who took Green among the top three or so receivers in fantasy this season, expecting more games like Week 1 and fewer like the games since. He's hurt by a poor quarterback, but still, Green should improve going forward. The Bengals' next two weeks feature games against Buffalo (which has been without much of its passing defense in recent weeks) and Detroit, so there's reason to think Green's improvement is imminent.
