2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
It's a very rare thing to have to scroll so far down the rankings to find A.J. Green's name. One of the most solidly consistent fantasy receivers of the last decade, Green enters his age 30 season at a serious crossroads. He missed seven games due to injury last year, and has had three fairly lackluster seasons in a row now. Entering the final year of his contract, Green is going to need a big year to cash in.

Coming off toe surgery, things sound great for Green this offseason. He looks to be full go for training camp later this month, and seems excited about the energy that a new head coach has brought to the offense. If he's truly over the toe injury that has lingered for years, and if Coach Taylor can indeed breathe some life into the playbook, look for Green to find his rightful place back in the top 10 at his position.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury A.J. Green meets with foot specialist
Foot/ankle drama continues
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 16, 11:20 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Bengals’ WR A.J. Green visited today with noted foot specialist, Dr. Robert Anderson, per source. If Green is in Green Bay today with a foot doctor, hard to imagine he’ll return this season. He’s scheduled to be a free agent this off-season. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)

FFToday's Take: Much like James Andrews and ACL tears, players who visit Dr. Anderson tend to do so expecting the worst regarding foot injuries. Green was unlikely to return this season after missing the first 15 weeks and this visit pretty much slams the door on it unless the visit was a recheck of some sort. Green's priority at this point is to be healthy by the time free agency begins in March.


Injury Auden Tate dealing with neck, head injuries
Diagnosed with cervical strain and concussion
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 18, 6:10 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Bengals coach Zac Taylor said WR Auden Tate is in concussion protocol. He has a cervical strain. (ESPN - Ben Baby)

FFToday's Take: Tate was taken off the field on a stretcher in Week 11, although he later tweeted he was "good." Assuming A.J. Green remains out this week and Tate can't play, Cincinnati would be presumably start Tyler Boyd and Alex Erickson in Week 12 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. It's not an ideal situation, especially with Ryan Finley not looking the part of an NFL quarterback.


Injury A.J. Green out indefinitely?
Setback with left ankle injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 7, 11:50 pm

Oakland Raiders
A.J. Green said he will likely not make his season debut Sunday against Baltimore after his left ankle did not respond well to workouts earlier this week. Following Monday's off-week practice, Green said he experienced swelling that derailed his plans of participating in Wednesday's practice. The ninth-year receiver said he doesn't know how long he will need to stay off the ankle as he continues the rehab process. The ninth-year receiver said he's still optimistic that he can play at some point in 2019 but wouldn't feel comfortable returning to the field without being able to go through a full practice. (ESPN - Ben Baby)

FFToday's Take: There's really no way to know if/when Green will make his 2019 debut. It's entirely possible either he or the team opts for an IR stint. For what it's worth, Green said the swelling wasn't as severe as it was a couple of weeks ago. If that is the case, there's at least a small chance he tries to practice next week. If he does make it back soon, it's going to be hard for owners to consider him anything more than an WR2 with rookie Ryan Finley as his quarterback.


Injury A.J. Green doesn't think he's going to play Sunday
Ankle, contract issue
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 7, 1:28 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
A.J. Green says ankle is swollen. Asked if he is going to play Sunday: “Probably not.” (Paul Dehner Jr. on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: So much for the Green debut in Week 10. It's tough to gauge how much this is related to his ankle or his contract, but it's probably a little of both. With Andy Dalton on the bench, the Bengals will roll out Ryan Finley at quarterback and Tyler Boyd, Auden Tate and Alex Erickson at receiver against the Ravens.


Injury A.J. Green misses practice Wednesday
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 6, 2:35 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Zac Taylor says A.J. Green didn’t feel great coming out of walkthrough so they held him out of practice. Taylor found out when he went out to practice. Now calling A.J. day to day. (Paul Dehner Jr. on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This after Taylor said Green would be play on Sunday. If Green got a new contract this week, he'd probably feel healthy enough to play. This soap opera will continue and hopefully we'll have a better idea of Green's status on Friday.


Ryan Finley to start at QB after Bengals' bye
Andy Dalton benched after nine seasons at helm in Cincy
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 29, 2:01 pm

Cincinnati Bengals
Tom Pelissero on Twitter: "Sources: The #Bengals are making a QB change after the bye. Andy Dalton goes to the bench. Rookie Ryan Finley expected to start. More right now on @nflnetwork" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The decision to bench Andy Dalton after almost nine seasons at the helm was probably a tough one, but it's not a terrible decision for the organization. Finley was the No. 104 overall pick and was mostly a game manager type in the preseason. He's unlikely to emerge as a long-term solution in Cincinnati, but he will have A.J. Green for Week 10 against the Ravens. He's off the fantasy radar and has similar upside to Brandon Allen in Denver.
