2012 is going to be remembered as A.J. Green's coming-out year, and fantasy owners are reaping the benefits of Green's hard work and success.
Green came out of the gate running and has been sprinting ever since. His weekly point totals are 7, 11, 25, 17, 12 and 25. He has six touchdowns; those are absolutely insane numbers. He's been even better in PPR leagues with his 43 receptions.
Green was drafted around the 33rd pick on average in standard leagues, which is late third round in 12-team leagues.
Excluding quarterbacks, Green has been the second-best fantasy player after Arian Foster in standard leagues with 97 points. Foster was expected to be No. 1; Green at No. 2 is a nice surprise, to say the least.
