Green (concussion) is officially listed as out for Sunday's playoff game against the Colts, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Without Andy Dalton's favorite target in the lineup, the likes of fellow wideouts Mohamed Sanu and Brandon Tate, as well as tight end Jermaine Gresham, if he's able to suit up, will be in line for added targets Sunday.
Green (concussion) is officially listed as doubtful for Sunday's playoff game against the Colts, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Green, who was held out of practice Friday, remains under the NFL's concussion protocol, and while his outlook for Sunday's game could potentially brighten over the next day or two, the doubtful designation suggests that's not a likely scenario. If Green misses Sunday's game, the likes of fellow wideouts Mohamed Sanu and Brandon Tate, as well as tight end Jermaine Gresham, health permitting, would be in line for added targets Sunday.
Green (concussion) is not practicing Friday, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After logging a partial practice Thursday, Green was seen in street clothes at Friday morning's session. He was scheduled to meet with a neurologist prior to the practice, and a final designation will come Friday afternoon. In light of his non-participation Friday, Green will likely be listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts. He's still in the NFL's concussion protocol, which means there's at least one more hurdle that he needs to clear.
As of Friday morning, Green is still under the NFL's concussion protocol, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Green (concussion) returned to practice Thursday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

While that's a step in the right direction, Green is still in the NFL's concussion protocol, so the wideout still has some hurdles to clear before being cleared to play as Sunday's 1:05 ET kickoff against the Colts approaches. With that in mind, Green is slated to be seen by a neurologist Friday morning, at which time the Bengals hope that the wideout will be cleared for a full practice later that day.
Green (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

2014

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 pedestrian per-play averages –14.6 YPC (15th among the league’s 37 100-target WR) and 8.0 YPT (18th) – Green was one of two receivers to have 90 catches, 1,400 yards and double-digit touchdowns (Demaryius Thomas was the other). At 6-4, 207 and with excellent speed and ball skills, Green is a threat to get deep and also a weapon in the red zone. Green’s eight catches of 40 yards or more were second only to Josh Gordon’s nine, and he was a prolific target near the goal line with 11 looks inside the 10 (tied for 5th). The biggest risk for Green this season is a reduction in targets – after all, the Bengals are strong defensively, and Giovani Bernard, Marvin Jones and Tyler Eifert are developing into complementary threats. But that was the case last year, too, and Cincinnati still aired the ball out 587 times (12th). Moreover, should Green’s targets diminish, presumably his efficiency would increase.

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.
