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 4 vs Kansas City
A.J. Green is healthy and looked unstoppable last week. He had a career-high 227 receiving yards and scored two touchdowns. He was targeted 13 times, which should be the norm for him (although he only 12 the first two weeks combined).
We know other defenses will be game planning against Green, but that has been the case most of his career. He has to love his matchup this week against KC. The Chiefs are dead last in aFPA to wide receivers which raises Green's value. Start him in all leagues as a top 5 fantasy wide receiver. He is due for another big game as long as the targets remain high.
