Bengals | Quiet game for A.J. Green

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 20:55:08 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green finished with three catches for 41 yards in a 29-14 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: It was the first time all year that Green has been held below 60 yards, but he still led the team in receiving. The entire Cincinnati offense should perform better against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 8, and Green should go back to putting up WR1 numbers.

Bengals | A.J. Green beat the jam in Week 5

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 18:41:56 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green earned the highest passer rating for all receivers when pressed at the line of scrimmage in Week 5 at 153.3, per NFL Next Gen Stats.

Fantasy Tip: To put that number into some perspective, 158.3 is considered a perfect passer rating in the NFL. The Miami Dolphins' Jarvis Landry came in second at 129.2. It's more proof Green is about as good as it gets at receiver and disproves the notion the angular 29-year-old isn't strong enough to beat physical coverage. He's obviously an every-week starter in fantasy.

Bengals | A.J. Green has big stat line in win

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 18:21:11 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green racked up seven receptions for 189 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: The highlight of the afternoon was a 77-yard touchdown reception, vindication after he lost a fumble and helped contribute on two other turnovers. He showed why he remains an elite fantasy receiver, playing well despite rainy conditions for most of the game. You'll need to make alternate plans in Week 6, as the team is on a bye.

Bengals | A.J. Green scores touchdown in Week 4

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 13:35:57 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green caught five passes for 63 yards and one touchdown against the Cleveland Browns in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Green has caught at least five passes in every game this season and has caught a touchdown pass in each of the last two games. He can be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy receiver next week against the Buffalo Bills.

Bengals | A.J. Green has 10 grabs, 111 yards

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 19:30:47 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green finished with 10 catches on 13 yards for 111 yards and a touchdown in a 27-24 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Green's status as the top option in the passing game is unquestioned, but it was still good to see the Cincinnati offense look competent for the first time all season. Green remains a WR1 in all formats.

Bengals | A.J. Green has quiet night

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 21:50:59 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green tallied 67 yards on five receptions (13.4 yards per reception) against the Houston Texans in Week 2. He was targeted eight times in the loss.

Fantasy Tip: Green's final line isn't terrible, but 50 of those 67 yards came on one catch, leaving just 17 for the other four (4.3 YPC). He'll get his next chance to break out against a revamped yet unproven Green Bay Packers secondary in Week 3. He's too talented to keep out of your lineup, and you certainly wouldn't want to sell low on him now. Stay the course.

Bengals | A.J. Green targeted 10 times in loss

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 18:21:11 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green posted five receptions for 74 yards on a game-high 10 targets in Week 1 against the Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: A couple of times Andy Dalton got in trouble trying to force it into his favorite receiver and the results weren't terribly favorable. The Cincinnati offense was terrible, getting shut out in the loss, but Green still wasn't a total disaster from a fantasy perspective.

Bengals | A.J. Green targeted heavily before injury

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 09:21:48 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green saw a 32.3-percent target share in Weeks 1 through 10 before he was lost for the season with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: Much of Green's heavy involvement had to do with the prolonged absence of Tyler Eifert as well as the struggles of the running game and the departure of Marvin Jones as well as Mohamed Sanu. Owners should expect the target share to fall back down closer to the 25-percent range - more typical for elite receivers - following the return of Eifert as well as the additions of John Ross and Joe Mixon. He remains firmly in the WR1 conversation, however.

Bengals | A.J. Green focused on winning

Sat, 01 Jul 2017 19:07:07 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green said he wouldn't mind seeing fewer targets this season if it means the other receivers are contributing and the team is winning.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Green does see a few less targets, his role as Andy Dalton's go-to receiver isn't changing any time soon. He is a safe bet to deliver WR1 production again in 2017.

Bengals | Cody Core ready for more

Fri, 30 Jun 2017 20:43:36 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Cody Core is seeing the benefits from the playing time he received last year when WR A.J. Green was injured, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. "It gives him the confidence to come out and work in the offseason and know that he can achieve higher goals," Lewis said.
