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...

A.J. Green: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

The Bengals have exercised their fifth-year contract option on Green, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Not that there was any doubt that they would do so, but Green is now under contract with the Bengals through 2015. The 25-year-old is coming off a stellar 2013 campaign in which he caught 98 passes for 1,426 yards and 11 TDs, guaranteeing his place as one of the top fantasy options at his position heading into the coming season.
Green (knee) is active for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Chargers, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Following an uncapped practice Friday, there was little worry regarding Green's availability. He should have little trouble finding success, against a San Diego defense that's permitted the third-most yards and receptions (222 catches for 3,050 yards) to opposing wide receivers in 2013.
Green (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Green (knee) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Green's presence was an encouraging sign for his availability Sunday against the Chargers, which should receive confirmation by the end of the week. Owners should be thrilled about his prospects against a San Diego defense that gave up the third most receptions (222) and receiving yards (3,050) to opposing wideouts this season.
Green (knee) returned to practice Thursday, Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Green sat out Wednesday to rest a sore knee, but he was able to get back on the field a day later. Even if Green was only able to get in a limited workout Thursday, it seems unlikely that the injury will prevent him from playing in the Bengals' playoff opener Sunday.
Green was absent from Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury, Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Green likely opted for treatment rather than deal with the threat of a setback in drills, especially since he's expected to play Sunday against the Chargers, according to Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site. With 11.1 targets per game to his name this season, Green's status will be watched closely as the week progresses.

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.
