2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Like most of the Bengals offense, Green struggled with consistency in 2017. A big chunk of his production came in a few games, while he failed to be a difference maker in the others. His 9.7 standard points per game was the lowest of his career and he enters his age 30 season hoping for a return to glory.

It's a testament to how great he has been in his career that we're talking about a guy who struggled, yet finished in the top 10 at his position. He led the NFL in percentage of his team's air yards, his 8 scores were the most he's had since 2015, and the 143 targets were all a sign that he's still far and away the top dog in this passing game. It would be better for Cincinnati's efficiency if they could get at least one more viable passing game threat, but regardless, Green should lead this team in every receiving category by a country mile. Despite the down year, Green is still one of the better bets in fantasy to finish at the top 5 at his position, and someone I'd be happy to have as my WR1.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury A.J. Green done for the year
Needs toe surgery, will be sidelined 3-4 months
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 3, 8:00 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Bengals' WR A.J. Green is expected to undergo season-ending surgery on the torn ligaments in his toe that will sideline him 3-4 months, but he is expected to have a full recovery and be ready for OTAs, per source. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: Green returned from a toe injury in Week 13 and lasted just over a quarter. The good news is he should be 100 percent for offseason workouts, but the bad news is that 2018 will mark the second time in three seasons he has played 10 or fewer games. Entering his age-31 season in 2019, it might be time for owners to start preparing for the end of his fantasy WR1 days. Tyler Boyd and John Ross will finish the season as starters in 2018.


Injury A.J. Green says he'll play Sunday
Missed three weeks with toe injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 28, 11:00 am

Cincinnati Bengals
All is semi-right with Bengaldom now that A.J. Green (toe) says he’ll play Sunday (1 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 12) against the Broncos at Paul Brown Stadium. After losing all three games with him out, as well as quarterback Andy Dalton (thumb) for the year, Green says there’s no way he’d miss games even though they’ve dipped from 5-3 to 5-6 since he last touched the ball. “I’m playing. I don’t care if we’re 0-15,” Green said before Wednesday’s practice … (Bengals.com)

FFToday's Take: The Bengals haven't been the same since Green injured his foot in Week 8. With Jeff Driskel at quarterback the Bengals offense will need all the help they can get. Green projects as a WR2 in a matchup with the Broncos in Week 13.


Injury A.J. Green listed as questionable
Will be re-evaluated on Saturday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 23, 3:00 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Green categorized as questionable despite not practicing all week. Marv says AJ could practice tomorrow and play Sunday. (Geoff Hobson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: A.J. Green (foot) missed practice all week but is listed as questionable. It seems like a longshot of for him to play but we could get surprise on Saturday. The Bengals offense needs their best player on the field.


Injury A.J. Green misses practice Wednesday
Toe injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 21, 11:55 am

Cincinnati Bengals
No Josh Malone, A.J. Green, Nick Vigil or Dre Kirkpatrick at today's #Bengals practice. (Paul Dehner Jr. on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Green injured his toe in Week 8 and is expected to practice in some capacity later this week. His status for Sunday is unclear but would be a big boost for the Bengals offense if he can get on the field against the Browns.


Injury John Ross back at practice, Gio Bernard limited
Ross expected to play
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 7, 5:00 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
WR John Ross, RB Giovani Bernard both practiced for the second straight time this week. Ross looks destined to play, Bernard not as concrete, but being out there is a very good sign. (Paul Dehner Jr. on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Bengals will be without their top wideout A.J. Green this week meaning other receivers will need to fill the void. Ross will likely get the start along side Tyler Boyd. Bernard has missed the last five weeks with a knee injury. He'll play a complementary role if he's able to return in Week 10.


Injury A.J. Green in walking boot Tuesday
Veteran WR has a Week 9 bye but injury timetable not yet defined
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 30, 1:25 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Paul Dehner Jr. on Twitter: "A.J. Green just came through the locker room with his right foot in a boot. He hurt it on last play Sunday. Obv, could be precautionary." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This certainly will be an injury to monitor coming out of the Week 9 bye, as Green is a huge part of the Bengals offense and his absence could affect the entire unit, from Andy Dalton and Tyler Boyd to Joe Mixon's effectiveness with defenses shadowing Green. Stay tuned.
