Pittsburgh Steelers CB Ike Taylor is likely to draw the task of trying to stop or limit WR Calvin Johnson in Week 11. He has played well against some of the league's premier receivers, and limited Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green to a season-low 41 yards in their matchup in Week 2. Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall was also limited to just 52 yards, his second-lowest yardage total of the year, in Week 3 while working against Taylor.
Fantasy Tip: Regardless of what Taylor has done in previous games against other receivers, you never, ever sit Johnson in fantasy leagues unless he is hurt or one a bye. Period.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green finished the Week 10 game against the Baltimore Ravens with eight receptions for 151 yards and a touchdown. With no time remaining in regulation, Bengals QB Andy Dalton heaved up a desperation prayer that was answered by Green. Ravens SS James Ihedigbo inexplicably batted the ball up into the air and right to Green, who was standing alone in the back of the end zone for the 51-yard touchdown. It marked Green's fifth consecutive 100-yard game, a franchise record.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners everywhere need to send a thank you note to Ihedigbo, as if he did not touch the ball or simply bats it down, the game ends and fantasy owners get far fewer points.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Andrew Hawkins, who was just activated from the Injured Reserve list, could become a third wide receiver option behind WRs A.J. Green and Marvin Jones in the team's Week 9 game Thursday, Oct. 31, against the Miami Dolphins with WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) questionable for the game. Hawkins was third on the team last year in receptions (51) and receiving yards (533).
Fantasy Tip: Hawkins is a player to keep an eye on in deep point-per-reception universes. The Bengals may bring him along slowly, but they'll surely utilize him when he's ready.

New York Jets CB Antonio Cromartie will likely have the task of covering Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green in Week 8. "Put his hands on him and pray," said Jets defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman. Green has 619 yards, 43 catches and five touchdowns through seven weeks. Last week against the New England Patriots, Cromartie allowed only one catch for 25 yards, but that came after three weeks where opposing quarterbacks had a rating over 100 against him.
Fri, 27 Sep 2013 10:07:16 -0700
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green will face off against Cleveland Browns CB Joe Haden this weekend, and Haden is welcoming the challenge. "I'm not just gonna run along with him and try to let him jump over me. It's gonna be a really, good, intense matchup. It's not a scared thing at all. It's gonna be a battle. You gotta know sometimes they might get theirs, but you gotta be able to get yours a lot more." Green has hauled in 18 passes for 344 yards and four touchdowns while averaging 19.1 yards per catch in four career games against Cleveland.
Fantasy Tip: Haden is one of the better cover corners in the league, but he hasn't shut down Green before, giving up large gains in their matchups at times. Green, as always, is a must-start.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (finger) tweaked a finger on his left hand in Week 1 and had it taped in the second quarter of the team's loss.
Fantasy Tip: Green had a monster day, and his finger injury didn't slow him at all. You shouldn't be concerned.
Sun, 08 Sep 2013 17:36:04 -0700
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (finger) posted nine receptions for 162 yards and two touchdowns (2, 45) in the Week 1 loss against the Chicago Bears. The yardage total was the most by a Bengals receiver in a season opener, and it was the 10th time in franchise history that a receiver posted at least 100 yards. Head coach Marvin Lewis said after the game that Green suffered a finger injury at one point, but he is fine. Green had fingers taped during the game.
Fantasy Tip: It was a great performance for fantasy owners. Green will look to carry the momentum into Week 2 on Monday Night Football when the Pittsburgh Steelers come to town.
Sun, 08 Sep 2013 13:26:56 -0700
Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green had nine catches for 162 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1.
Wed, 21 Aug 2013 13:01:29 -0700
Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said WR A.J. Green (knee) will be ready to play in the team's third preseason game.
Wed, 21 Aug 2013 10:00:45 -0700
The Cincinnati Bengals are easing WR A.J. Green (knee) into practice this week, and he declared his knee 100 percent. He might see his first preseason action Saturday, Aug. 24, against the Dallas Cowboys.
