2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Only 25 years old and still getting better, A.J. Green gives fantasy owners everything they want in an elite No. 1 wide receiver. Green finished in the top six in targets, receptions, yards and touchdowns. Redraft, Dynasty, PPR or Standard, Green stacks up in any fantasy format. He has increased his totals during each of his three years in the league and has the benefit of being on a team with a young offensive nucleus, which should mean solid production for years to come. Clearly a top-five fantasy wide receiver, there are a few things than could prevent him from reaching the top of the charts. Despite being 6'4'', Green is slightly built at only 204 lbs., as most players in his height class are 220+ lbs. This lack of bulk might explain his poor catch percentage inside the red zone the past two seasons – 20 catches on 42 targets or 48 percent. Another interesting stat is his red zone touchdown numbers. In 2012, Green scored eight or his 10 total touchdowns inside the 20. Last year he only scored half that number and watched teammate Marvin Jones score nine. These numbers can easily be contributed to increased defensive attention, but this actually could be an area where Green can improve. Offseason training reports seem to indicate that Green has worked to bulk up. An increased dependability near the goal line is a reason why he will maintain his elite status despite the Bengals planned dedication to the run game. Expect a slight dip in receptions and yards, but Green will remain a consistent threat who scores at least 10 times each season, doesn't miss games, has a good head on his shoulders and looks like a WR1 as much as anyone in the league.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury A.J. Green expected to play
No setbacks in practice
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 2, 8:12 am

Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green, who has missed the past three games with a toe injury, will play Sunday against the Jaguars, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Green has missed the last three games with a toe injury and was limited in practice all week but suffered no setbacks and is ready to go for Week 9. He's a WR1 whenever he's in the lineup.


Green likely in, Bernard possibly out in Week 9
WR healing from toe injury; Bernard dealing with hip injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 30, 4:50 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals look like they have a good chance of getting WR A.J. Green back in the lineup for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars as Green participated in practice again on Thursday. However, RB Giovani Bernard missed a second straight day of practice on Thursday because of the hip injury he suffered against Baltimore last weekend. Geoff Hobson of the team’s website reported Bernard’s absence and added that “you have to figure he’s going to be out” when the Bengals take the field against the Jaguars. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: If Bernard is out, Jeremy Hill would be in line for low-end RB1/high-end RB2 production, even against an improving Jaguars' defense. Cedric Peerman and Rex Burkhead would be other backfield options. Green's return would be a boost to the fantasy stock of QB Andy Dalton, while Mohamed Sanu's consistency figures to suffer with the Bengals' top playmaker back in the lineup.


Injury A.J. Green back at practice
Toe injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 29, 1:00 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Wide receiver A.J. Green practiced on Wednesday for the first time since re-aggravating a right big toe injury exactly three weeks ago, and said prior to practice starting that he is hoping to play on Sunday against Jacksonville. (Cincinnati Enquirer)

FFToday's Take: Green will need to make it through practice this week without any setbacks in order to play. "If I'm playing, I'm playing all snaps," said Green. More updates to come throughout the week.


Injury A.J. Green misses practice Friday
Bengals receiver doesn't practice all week
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 24, 11:30 am

Cincinnati Bengals
A.J. Green not practicing again today. Have to think that will rule him out for Sunday. Will get official injury report around 2. (Paul Dehner Jr. via Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Bad news for Green owners as it appears likely that he will sit this week. If he does, Mohamed Sanu remains on the WR2 radar against the Bengals.


Injury A.J. Green misses practice Wednesday
Toe injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 22, 12:30 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
A.J. Green said Tuesday that his injured toe feels better, but it wasn’t feeling well enough for him to practice with the team on Wednesday. Geoff Hobson of the team’s website reports that Green worked on a rehab field while his teammates went through their first practice ahead of Sunday’s crucial matchup with the Ravens in Cincinnati. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: The Bengals would welcome back their top receiver as soon as possible. They struggled to move the ball last week against the Colts managing only 135 total yards. Green will have to get in at least limited practices this week in order to play. He'll likely be a gametime decision.


Injury HC: "A.J. Green has made tremendous progress"
Toe injury has sidelined WR last two games
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 20, 6:20 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Marvin Lewis says he believes A.J. Green has made tremendous progress. He looks forward to seeing how he progresses this week. (Coley Harvey on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It is not a safe bet for Green to return for Week 8, so owners should be prepared to be without his services again. However, it is possible the Bengals - coming off a shutout loss to the Colts on Sunday - may feel a bit of urgency to get Green back on the field in order to play against Baltimore. At best, he is probably shaping up to be a game-time decision.


Injury A.J. Green has "a little bit more than turf toe"
WR almost certainly out Week 6, if not beyond
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 9, 5:25 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
A.J. Green’s Pro Bowl toe is now in the hands of a blue-ribbon panel of doctors and while Bengaldom holds its collective breath. Wednesday’s MRI is going to send him to another consultation with one of the nation’s leading foot specialists when he meets with Cincinnati doctor James Amis on Thursday. It’s believed the MRI again showed no tears or breaks, but he’s obviously still having discomfort in the ligament under the sesamoid bone in the ball of the foot underneath the big toe. (Bengals.com)

FFToday's Take: HC Marvin Lewis told former NFL player Ross Tucker on his podcast that Green has "a little bit more than (turf toe)". Turf toe is a difficult enough condition to play through, so an injury more serious than that could be damning for Green's 2014 prospects. In the short term, Mohamed Sanu should be the clear top option among Bengals' receivers, especially since Marvin Jones is not close to returning. Dane Sanzenbacher is also worth considering in PPR leagues as well.


Injury A.J. Green leaves practice on cart
Aggravated his toe injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 8, 2:05 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
A.J. Green appeared to aggravate the toe injury that kept him out against the Falcons. During the stretching period of practice open to the media, Green appeared injured and visibly upset. He threw off his helmet and shoe in disgust and was eventually taken off on a cart. He was able to walk, but with a limp. (Cincinnati Enquirer)

FFToday's Take: We'll have to wait for further information but it appears Green aggravated his toe injury. Marvin Jones (ankle) also missed practice today and doesn't appear close to playing. Mohamed Sanu and Dane Sanzenbacher would likely be the starting receivers if both Green and Jones are out.


Injury A.J. Green expects to play Sunday
No soreness in foot
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 19, 10:25 am

Cincinnati Bengals
A.J. Green told the Bengals' official team website he "feels good" and plans to play Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. Green strained a ligament in his foot last weekend, forcing him out most of the contest. He missed practice Wednesday and caught a few passes Thursday, but was limited in practice. Friday morning the receiver said he has "no soreness" and if he feels similarly Sunday, he'll play. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: The Bengals have a bye in Week 4 and could easily hold him out giving him extra rest for Week 5 but it appears Green will be on the field this week against Tennessee. Owners should temper their expectations given the risk of aggravating the injury, plus the Bengals are likely to incorporate a run-heavy gameplan.
