A.J. Green Week 6 Outlook - Bengals at Colts

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Oct 15th 2020, 9:55am EDT

His 0.76 PPR points per target rank as the lowest in the NFL among receivers with at least 10 targets. It's not all that close, either, as the closest player is Chris Hogan at 0.99 PPR points per target. It should come as no surprise, but Green has seen the most targets (34) without a single touchdown this year. He's now seen 10 targets that have traveled over 20 yards in the air, which ranks eighth in the NFL. The bad news is that Green hasn't caught any of them. Before you go on a Green rant and why he's no good anymore, Burrow has completed just 1-of-24 passes that've gone 20-plus yards down the field. Green's definitely a part of the problem, but he's not the only problem. The matchup with the Colts has not been a good one for receivers despite their lack of above average cornerback talent. They've allowed just 7.77 yards per target to wide receivers, which ranks as the fifth-lowest mark in the league. If Green plays (he left last week's game with a hamstring injury), he'd see Xavier Rhodes in coverage the most, a cornerback who's trying to make his way back from one of the worst cornerback seasons in recent memory. Through five games with his new team, he's allowed just 9-of-21 passing for 157 yards and a touchdown. The Colts have already allowed nine wide receivers to hit double-digit PPR days, though just three of them have scored more than 12.8 PPR points. Green is just not playing well right now, so even if you believe he'll eventually bounce back, you can't play him until we at least see some sort of flash, and this matchup has been far from a smash spot so far.
