Green caught all eight of his targets for 169 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-17 win over the Browns.
Green averaged a robust 21.1 yards per catch thanks in part to a 48-yard Hail Mary touchdown he hauled in just before halftime. He now has three games with at least 169 yards and a touchdown this season, which ranks first among NFL wideouts. Green has endured a couple of lean weeks this season, but he has generally been a steady producer and carriers immense upside from game to game. This will remain the case against the Redskins in Week 8.
Green reeled in six of 10 passes for 88 yards in Sunday's loss to New England.
Green was on the receiving end of two gorgeous 20+ yard passes from Andy Dalton, but was held under 10 fantasy points for the fourth time in the season's first six games. It's been feast or famine for Green thus far this season, with two games of at least 170 yards and a touchdown and two more with 50 or fewer yards. While that might frustrate fantasy owners, it's worth keeping in mind that Green tends to heat up once the thermometer dips. Nearly two-thirds of his touchdown receptions, 17 of 27, from 2013 through 2015 were snagged after Nov. 1 - including seven of 10 last season.
Green is thus good to go for Sunday's game against the Patriots and remains a candidate to be heavily targeted in Week 6. That said, it wouldn't surprise us to see New England coach Bill Belichick and his staff game-plan for the contest with an eye toward containing Green this weekend.

It's not initially clear how much work Green was able to get in Thursday, but it's a good sign that he was back on the field after sitting out Wednesday's session to give his sore cast a rest.
Green (calf) did not practice Wednesday.
We'll revisit Green's status Thursday, but the report hints that the star wideout's issue doesn't appear to be serious "since he followed the receivers and offense and wasn't on the rehab field early in practice" Wednesday.
