Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Making a late appearance on the injury report Saturday, Green is in search of a third consecutive 100-yard performance, which would mark the second-longest streak of his career (five games in 2013). With Tyler Eifert (concussion) out of commission for the second time in three contests, expect Green to be on the receiving end of numerous passes from AJ McCarron once again.
Green (back) was added to the injury report Saturday as probable for Sunday's game against San Francisco, ESPN NFL Nation's Coley Harvey reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Green's availability for Sunday's game is evidently in little or no question, and given that fact he remains a strong on-paper play against the 49ers, especially with Tyler Eifert's absence leaving up more red-zone targets for grabs.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

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.
