Green continues to see a ridiculous amount of targets in this offense and he's now producing enough to be viewed as a solid FLEX play with upside every single week.

Green has rebounded the last two weeks, ranking 20th among fantasy wide receivers. Boyd and Higgins have more upside, but Green is a WR3 in a plus matchup.

If we started the season in Week 6, we'd be looking at Green like the player he's always been. He's racked up 24 targets and turned them into 15 receptions for 178 yards over the last two weeks. He's still not found the endzone this season on 58 targets, which is the highest target total without a touchdown. The closest players are Julian Edelman and Jarvis Landry who've both seen 39 targets. With Burrow playing the way he is, it's only a matter of time. Is this the week where Green finds his first touchdown? The Titans have allowed nine touchdowns to wide receivers, which is the sixth-most in the league. It also doesn't hurt that Green's primary matchup this week will be with Malcolm Butler, who's seen a league-high 48 targets in coverage. He's allowed just one touchdown in his coverage, but he's allowed 376 yards in his coverage, which is the eighth-most in football, so teams do believe he's the one to target. Knowing the Titans have faced an average of 25.2 targets per game to wide receivers alone, Green should have no issues getting up there in the targets again. It's fair to say he's back on the WR3 radar this week, and the arrow is pointing up.
