Bengals | A.J. Green blows up in Week 1

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (finger) posted nine receptions for 162 yards and two touchdowns (2, 45) in the Week 1 loss against the Chicago Bears. The yardage total was the most by a Bengals receiver in a season opener, and it was the 10th time in franchise history that a receiver posted at least 100 yards. Head coach Marvin Lewis said after the game that Green suffered a finger injury at one point, but he is fine. Green had fingers taped during the game.

Fantasy Tip: It was a great performance for fantasy owners. Green will look to carry the momentum into Week 2 on Monday Night Football when the Pittsburgh Steelers come to town.
