'Chunk' plays hurting Colts defense

The Indianapolis Colts are allowing a league-high 40 completions of 20+ yards, or 'chunk' plays as they are referred to. That number averages out to 5.7 per game. They gave up 55 'chunk' plays in 16 games last season—3.4 per game.

Fantasy Impact: 

Facing the Colts this week are the Cincinnati Bengals and WR A.J. Green. The Bengals star wide receiver is averaging 15.5 yards per catch this season (35 receptions, 545 yards) and has caught at least one pass of 16+ yards in each game. He's also recorded 7 receptions of 20+ yards on the year. There's a chance Green will haul in a long pass or two this week, as he faces the defense allowing the most 'chunk' receptions. We have Green ranked as our No. 2 WR this week in what is a fantastic matchup, according to our aFPA metric.
