Green hauled in 10 of 12 targets for 173 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 22-7 win over the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

The Pro Bowler got his night started off right with a highlight-worthy leaping grab of a 51-yard heave from Andy Dalton and added a 43-yard grab in the third quarter that set up a Mike Nugent field goal. He also powered his way through a Tony Lippett tackle attempt for a seven-yard touchdown in the first period and put together his second 100-yard performance over the season's first four games. After two rather ordinary performances versus the Steelers and Broncos, Green's production Thursday was a reminder of his immense value in any fantasy format, and is team-high 12 targets a testament to his role as the focal point of the Bengals attack.

Green nabbed eight of 11 targets for 77 yards in Sunday's loss to Denver.

EDGE Analysis

Green rebounded well after Week 2's tough two-catch game against Pittsburgh. The statuesque receiver failed to haul in a pass longer than 20 yards, but had a solid game underneath against Denver's vaunted secondary. His lone slip up was a costly drop on what would have been a third-down conversion with the Bengals driving and down by five points. His next test will be against a Miami secondary that has allowed a 90-yard receiver in all three games.

Green (personal) was present for Thursday's practice, Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Green did not participate in Wednesday's session following the birth of his child, but he was back at practice just one day later. Green said in the past he would be willing to sit out a game if it fell on the same day as the birth, but given the timing that it actually happened, it seems likely he will be good to go for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Green did not attend practice Wednesday, as he and wife await the birth of their son.

EDGE Analysis

We'll monitor Green's practice participation as Sunday's game against the Broncos approaches. The wideout relayed last month that he would miss a game, if necessary, to present for the birth of his first child.

Green finished with two receptions for 38 yards in the Bengals' 24-16 loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Despite tying for second on his team with eight targets, Green finished just sixth in receptions, remarkably less than both of the Bengals' running backs. Pittsburgh appeared to make stopping Green a priority, though, but the Steelers' secondary typically isn't of the typical caliber required to shut down the All-Pro wideout. Green may have trouble getting back on track until Week 4 though, as next week poses a difficult matchup against the Broncos' "No Fly Zone" secondary.

Green caught 12 of his 13 targets for 180 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's season-opening win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

The highlight of the sixth-year receiver's afternoon was burning cornerback Darrelle Revis for a 54-yard score in the second quarter. Green was clearly glad to have regular starting quarterback Andy Dalton back, and remains a top-notch fantasy option coming off an 86-catch, 1,297-yard season in which he found pay dirt 10 times. His nearly unmatched combination of health and production has allowed him to top 1,000 receiving yards in each of his first five campaigns, and he's well on pace to top that total again one week into 2016.

Green (knee) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Green has made a full recovery from the bruised knee he suffered in the third week of the preseason. He'll likely see a lot of Darrelle Revis during Sunday's game against the Jets, but with TE Tyler Eifert (ankle) not expected to play, the tough matchup probably won't dissuade Andy Dalton from targeting his go-to receiver. Green should be in for a busy year.

Jones (knee) said he is not at all worried about the injury that caused him to leave Sunday's preseason game against the Jaguars, according to NBC's broadcast of the game.

EDGE Analysis

Green merely banged knees with a defensive back, and he actually stayed in the game for one more play. Though limping at first and clearly in some pain, Green never went back to the locker room for evaluation and was shown walking around on the sidelines. It was already reported that he would have stayed in the contest if it had been a regular-season game. Green finished the brief appearance with one catch for five yards on two targets.

Green left Sunday's preseason game against the Jaguars with an apparent lower body injury, but the Bengals said he would have stayed in if it had been a regular-season contest, Paul Dehner of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Green came up limping after making a five-yard reception, but he stayed on the field and ran his route on the next snap. He then limped off the field at the end of the series, presumably done for the night. Although it appears a major injury was avoided, the Bengals should know more after the conclusion of Sunday's game.

Green said that he is prepared to miss a game should his first child be born on a game day, Nunzio Ingrassia of Fox Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Green's wife is due to give birth to their first child on Friday, September 30th, the day after Cincinnati's Week 4 matchup with the Dolphins. While it's not likely he ends up missing a game, it's something for owners should keep in the back of their mind, as Green is one of the best receivers in the NFL and a missed game would impact season long and weekly fantasy players alike.
