Re-introduce yourself to the Bengals’ latest X-Factor because they’ve got a lot of them on offense.
Since 2013, here are Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton’s numbers when wide receiver Marvin Jones is paired opposite Pro Bowler A.J Green:
A 62.6 completion percentage at 7.6 yards per attempts for 41 TDs and 21 picks and a passer rating of 93.2. That’s compared to career numbers of 61.8 percent, 7.1 yards per attempts and an 86.7 rating.
And in games they combine for a TD since 2013, like they did in Sunday’s 28-24 victory in Baltimore, the Bengals are 8-1.
Jones is fast, tough, has great hands and defenses have to treat him almost as delicately as Green. On Sunday’s first drive he made a nice leaping catch on third-and-six when Dalton let him come back for it on the left sideline for a 32-yard play. And his one-handed catch on the last drive down the right sideline when he fried cornerback Kyle Arrington for 31 yards is now a part of Bengals lore.

Week 11 at Arizona
A.J. Green had his second consecutive ho-hum game with only five catches for 67 yards and zero touchdowns. For most receivers, that might be okay, but Green owners expect much more and have been disappointed for the most part in 2015. Green has only been targeted 10-plus times in three games this season. Add in the fact he has had only two 100-plus receiving yard games and four touchdowns, and it's safe to say he has underachieved considering the expectations.
Green will face Arizona this week, who is 19th in aFPA to wide receivers. Although the game is on the road, Green should put up at least the numbers he has the past two weeks and hopefully more. Start him as a top-5 fantasy wide receiver for Week 11. The potential to have big games is still there on a weekly basis.
