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...

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Green set a career-high with 12 receptions just two weeks ago, and he now has a touchdown in two straight games, and three in his last four. He is unquestionably the top wideout in Cincinnati and is a top-tier fantasy option in any given game. However, it will likely be a tougher time in Week 15 at Cleveland, especially if cornerback Joe Haden matches up against him all game. Green had three catches on 10 targets for 23 yards against the Browns back in Week 10.
Green (thigh) is active for Sunday's game against the rival Steelers.

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.
