Green caught four of nine targets for 50 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 20-17 win over the Broncos.
Green had a rather quiet game going into the fourth quarter, but an 18-yard touchdown reception salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective. While he's only surpassed 50 receiving yards in one of his last five games, three trips to the end zone during that span have benefited his fantasy owners. Green will look to further distance himself from recent quiet outings next week against the Browns.

Green racked up 115 yards and a touchdown on five catches while being targeted seven times in Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Titans.
Green's 70-yard touchdown put his team up 20-17 with 5:03 to play, but the hosts responded with a beautiful scoring drive capped by a seven-yard DeMarco Murray receiving touchdown with 36 seconds to play. While the star wide receiver had actually been held below 50 yards in every game since Week 5, his big-play ability and high target volume make Green an every-week staple in fantasy lineups.

According to a league official, Green won't receive a suspension for his altercation with the Jaguars' Jalen Ramsey during the Bengals' 23-7 loss Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
After the two players trash talked one another throughout the first half of the contest, Green's frustration boiled over late in the second quarter, when he was ejected from the contest after grabbing Ramsey's neck, tossing him to the ground and throwing several punches. Per Tom Pelissero of NFL.com, both players could be facing fines for their antics, but neither will be subject to any supplemental discipline from the league office. With that in mind, Green's fantasy owners can rest easy knowing that he'll be available for the Bengals' Week 10 matchup with the Titans, likely eager to make amends after his early departure resulted in him turning in one catch for six yards in Week 9.

Green was ejected from Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars in the second quarter, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
In an outburst completely uncharacteristic of Green's career to date, the star wideout completely lost his cool and took it out on the top Jacksonville defensive back. Green and cornerback Jalen Ramsey has been engaged in heated trash talking all game, but it finally boiled over when Green grabbed the back of Ramsey's neck, took him to the ground and threw several punches. Green will certainly be fined for the incident, and it wouldn't be too surprising if the league office considered a suspension. He'll finish the day with just one catch for six yards, resulting in the lowest fantasy point total for him on the season. In the meantime, the Bengals will be left with Brandon LaFell and tight end Tyler Kroft as the top pass-catching options, though running back Joe Mixon -- who has two catches at halftime -- should be a factor as well.

Green caught three of eight passes for 27 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-23 win over Indianapolis.
Green tied the game up late in the second quarter with a nifty double move to break over the middle for an eight-yard score. The stud receiver has been held to just three catches in each of the last two weeks, but new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor has been sure to target him in the red area since taking over and Green has caught a touchdown in four of his last five games. To put into perspective how Green's value is rising, that's as many scores as he had in 12 games under former offensive coordinator Ken Zampese.

Green caught three of six targets for 41 yards during Sunday's 29-14 loss to the Steelers.
The entire Bengals offense was hampered by an inefficient offensive line that prevented QB Andy Dalton from consistently finding time to connect with his receivers downfield. When the Steelers became even more aggressive with their pass rush in the second half, things only got worse for Cincinnati. Green was no exception to these offensive woes. In fact, the Georgia product was held catchless for the entire second half despite his team playing in catch-up mode almost the entire time. However, this was a tough matchup all things considered, so fantasy owners shouldn't hesitate inserting Green into their lineups in Week 8 when the receiver is gifted a matchup with a Colts secondary that allowed 8.5 yards per attempt through Week 7, which is second-worst in the league.

Green reeled in seven of 13 targets for 189 yards and a score in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Bills.
Green's biggest contribution came early in Sunday's game when he went deep up the right sideline for a 77-yard touchdown. The Bengals look like a new team under new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor and arguably no one has benefited more than Green. Green has topped 100 yards twice in the three games since Cincinnati's switch and has scored in each game. He'll face a tough challenge in keeping the moment going against Jalen Ramsey, A.J. Bouye, and the Jaguars after next week's bye.

Green caught five of seven targets for 63 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-7 win over the Browns.
Green tied for the team lead in targets, but he struggled to open up big plays, aside from a 25-yard catch and run. He salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective with a short touchdown, marking the second straight game he's reached the end zone. Green has been a steady performer despite the dysfunction around him on the Cincinnati offense this year, and he should continue as such next week against the Bills.

Green caught 10 of 13 passes for 111 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-24 victory over the Bengals.
Coming off a season in which Green saw double-digit targets in six of nine completed games, things haven't changed as he remains the apple of QB Andy Dalton's eye. He's now been funneled a gaudy 31 looks through three games and is on pace to approach the career-high 178 targets he accrued in 2013 -- when he finished the season with 1,426 receiving yards and 11 spikes. His only concern going forward is the general state of the Bengals offense that just underwent a change at offensive coordinator.

Green brought in five of eight targets for 67 yards in Thursday's 13-9 loss to the Texans.
Green was unsurprisingly Andy Dalton's top target on the night, and is in the opener, he managed to produce a serviceable stat line despite the Bengals' general offensive ineptitude. The multi-time Pro Bowler seems to be the one member of the Cincinnati aerial attack hitting on all cylinders early, already having logged 10 receptions (on 18 targets) for 141 yards through the first two weeks. Andy Dalton is bound to break out of his early-season slump, and as his top target, Green will undoubtedly be a beneficiary when he does. He'll look to play a pivotal role in a Week 3 road showdown against the Packers.
