Green is eyeing Julio Jones' 2016 campaign as a framework for what he expects for himself this season, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports. "That's the goal. Win the Super Bowl," Green said. "Look at the year Julio had. He was coming off an1,800-yard season and he had what last year? (1,409). That's because they put all the weapons around him. He still made the same plays he made when he had the 1,800 yards, but when they double-teamed him they had (Sanu) and (Tyler) Gabriel."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Green had an under-the-radar huge year in 2015. His 9.8 YPT was third among the league's 32 100-target WR and first among anyone with more than 105 targets. He tied for seventh in catches of 20-plus yards (19) despite being 15th in targets. His 10 scores tied for eighth, even though he was 11th in red-zone looks (19) and tied for 14th in targets inside the 10 with eight. In short, Green was an elite WR whose totals were limited only by his modest usage. That could change in 2016. The Bengals parted with 152 targets between Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu. In their place is 29-year-old Brandon LaFell and rookie second-rounder Tyler Boyd. And tight end Tyler Eifert (16 RZ targets) enters the season with uncertainty after ankle surgery. So, there's some chance Green sees an uptick in looks, especially if the Bengals' defense (17.4 PPG allowed, 2nd) takes a small step back. Green's production fell off significantly during the season's final three weeks when AJ McCarron took over for injured starter Andy Dalton, who is healthy again at press time. At 6-4, 207, with 4.48 speed and excellent quickness for his size, Green is still one of the league's premier big-play threats, and his healthy floor is among the league's highest. His ceiling hinges on whether he sees the target volume commensurate with his talent.

2015

A toe injury cost Green three midseason games, an arm injury cost him most of another in Week 16 and a concussion during the fourth quarter in Week 17 sidelined him for the team's wild-card loss against the Colts. Despite the physical toll, and quarterback Andy Dalton's significant regression, Green's per-play and per-game production remained robust as ever. He averaged 9.0 YPT, good for 12th among the league's 41 100-target wideouts, and 15.1 YPC (9th). And prorating over a full season, his 69 catches for 1,041 yards and six scores in essentially 12 games comes to 92 catches for 1,388 yards and eight touchdowns. At 6-4, 207, with 4.48 speed, excellent quickness for his size and good ball skills, Green has been one of the league's top big-play receivers since he was drafted fourth overall in 2011. The concerns here are the nagging injuries — though he's reportedly 100 percent healthy — and Dalton's spotty play under center. Dalton should, however, get a boost not only from a healthy Green but also the return of Marvin Jones, who missed all last season, and tight end Tyler Eifert, who saw only eight snaps in Week 1. At 26, Green is still in his prime and should more or less be slotted where he was a year ago.

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.
