2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Like most receivers, Green’s efficiency has gone down as his opportunities have gone up. As long as he’s getting 178 targets (3rd), that’s a tradeoff with which most are willing to live. Despite pedes...

Green (toe) is not listed on the Bengals' Week 10 injury report.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Green remained limited in practice all of last week and was only on the field for 40 of the Bengals' 69 offensive snaps Sunday against Jacksonville, but apparently he's progressed to the point where he isn't inhibited to any significant degree by the toe issue. Thus, even with the short week, Green's status for the Bengals' Week 10 matchup against Cleveland isn't in any danger. While Green figures to be covered primarily by Pro Bowl corner Joe Haden, most owners will want him active come Thursday.

Green (toe) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Green, who will give it a go Sunday, after practicing in a limited fashion all week, previously suggested that if he did play this weekend, he expected to handle his normal allotment of snaps. That of course precludes any in-game setbacks and could also hinge on Sunday's game remaining competitive, given that the Bengals' next contest contest occurs Thursday against the Browns.
Green (toe) will play Sunday against the Jaguars, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Green has missed the last two games due to the injury, but he was listed as questionable for Sunday's game, after being able to practice in a limited capacity all week. It's an excellent week to return, as the Jaguars are allowing 267.4 passing yards per game this season, the sixth-most in the NFL.
Green (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, according to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

While Green's questionable listing is an acknowledgment that he isn't a lock to play, things do appear to be trending in that direction after the wideout turned in a full week of limited practice participation. "A.J. has looked fine," coach Marvin Lewis said Friday. "He wants to play. He's telling everybody he wants to play. If everything stays the way it is, he'll play." We'll track Green's status as Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff approaches, but at this stage, it appears that it would take a pre-game setback to keep him out of action this weekend.
Green (toe) suited up for Friday's practice, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' website reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

It's not clear exactly how much work Green was able to get in Friday, but the important thing to note is he was able to take the field for the third day in a row. The Bengals will provide an update on Green's status at some point Friday, but for fantasy owners and Bengals fans should be optimistic about his chances of returning to action this week.
Green (toe) practiced again Thursday, the Bengals' official site reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Believe it or not, Green had a down year – at least on a per play basis. While Green led the league with seven catches of 40-plus, he had only 16 catches of 20-plus (T-15th) on 164 targets (T-5th), and he averaged a pedestrian 8.2 yards per target, 16th among the league's 39 100-target wideouts. Green was primarily a volume guy and a goal-line threat, with 23 red-zone looks (T-2nd), 14 from inside the 10 (1st).  Nonetheless, Green finished as the No. 4 overall receiver in standard leagues last year (No. 3 in PPR), and there's reason to think his efficiency will improve. Green averaged 9.2 YPT during his rookie season and had more big plays (19 to 16) despite 49 fewer targets. At 24, the 6-4, 210-pound burner hasn't lost a step, and quarterback Andy Dalton could get better in Year 3. Even at the current pace, the volume and red-zone looks ensure a high floor.

2012

A rare 1,000-yard receiver as a rookie, Green is just getting started in the NFL. At 6-4, 210, with excellent speed, outstanding ball skills and superior athleticism, Green is already a mismatch for opposing defensive backs. He averaged 9.2 yards per target as a rookie, while catching balls from a rookie quarterback. Despite missing a game with a knee injury, and playing through a shoulder sprain, Green had seven catches of 40-plus yards (tied for 3rd). Green also showed outstanding hands, dropping only three passes in 115 targets. Green also saw 16 red-zone targets, nine of which were from inside the 10 (tied for 6th). Given his size and leaping ability, it’s reasonable to expect more scores in 2012. Green could stand to bulk up a bit, especially as the NFL season took its toll on him last year, but with Green entering his second year along with quarterback Andy Dalton, things should only get better.

2011

The No. 4 overall pick out of Georgia, the 6-4, 210-pound Green projects as a potential superstar with excellent speed, uncanny quickness for a player his size and superior athleticism. Green has good hands and fantastic ball skills, going up over smaller defenders and catching the ball at its peak. He'll need to put on more muscle, and his immediate situation – an unsettled quarterback position in Cincinnati and other budding young receivers in Jordan Shipley, Jerome Simpson and Andre Caldwell – is far from ideal. But Green's not a project – he's NFL-ready right now, and his skills merit a late-round flier, irrespective of his environment.
