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 wideout, 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.
Green caught five of 10 targets for 74 yards in Sunday's loss to Baltimore. Green had a few nice plays on Sunday, including a late 27-yard catch-and-scamper downfield, but it was hard for Cincinnati's offense to get into a rhythm while turning the ball over five times. Green should have an easier go of things once the the unit starts humming, considering defenses should be kept honest by the Bengals' influx of young offensive talent. However, Sunday showed that time might be a ways away, unfortunately.
Green nabbed four of six targets for 43 yards in Sunday's preseason loss to Washington. Green came out hot on Sunday, hauling in all four of his catches during Cincinnati's opening drive, including a 14-yarder that set up Jeremy Hill's touchdown run. He was targeted again until the end of the half as the Bengals' offense sputtered after the opening drive. After missing six games with a torn hamstring last season, Green has looked solid this preseason, collecting nine passes for 103 yards through three games.
Green caught three of six targets for 39 yards during Saturday's preseason loss to Kansas City. Quarterback Andy Dalton looked Green's way early and often, and the receiver would have had a better stat line if Dalton didn't overthrow him on a short crossing route on the opening drive. Green was also flagged for offensive pass interference to negate a 16-yard reception. With those two mishaps in mind, it was an impressive showing from the star wideout. He was only involved in the first three series of the game, after all.
