Bengals | A.J. Green a limited participant

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 16:16:11 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Oct. 29. Green said he feels good, and he'll try to do more Thursday, Oct. 30. It looks more promising that he'll play in Week 9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and if he does, he's unlikely to limit his number of snaps. Green did position-specific drills Wednesday and ran some routes, and he didn't favor his right big toe. However, he has been told to expect to play through some level of pain for the rest of the season. Green said trainers may tape up his foot a bit, but he isn't planning on wearing different shoes or wearing inserts for cushioning.

Fantasy Tip: Green's FantasyScore price ($7,500; 15.0% of cap) hasn't dropped a whole lot, but he's definitely worth considering for your lineup if he plays against the Jaguars.

Bengals | A.J. Green practicing

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 10:34:23 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Green appears to be on track to play in Week 9, but owners will need to see if he is able to practice the next few days before deciding on their lineup. Green probably would be a risky option on FantasyScore at $6,900 since he may not be 100 percent during the game.

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 09:14:36 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Green has missed the last several games with his toe injury, and his status for Week 9 is uncertain. Green costs $7,500 on FantasyScore this week, but owners will need to watch his practice participation during the week to see if he has a chance to play.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) has about a 70 percent chance to play in Week 9. He is expected to receive a special shoe this week.

Fantasy Tip: Green would figure to be a good start against the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, the long layoff could leave him rusty. Check his price tag early in the week.

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 06:19:26 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is out for the Week 8 game Sunday, Oct. 26. He hopes to return next week.

Bengals | A.J. Green unlikely to play

Sat, 25 Oct 2014 08:56:43 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is not expected to play in Week 8, because he has ligament damage under his toe. The team wants to be careful with him since the injury has lingered.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should avoid using Green until he is able to return to the field. Mohammed Sanu likely will continue being the team's top receiver and could be a No. 3 wide receiver or flex option for owners on FantasyScore at $5,700.

Bengals | A.J. Green listed as doubtful

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 11:08:43 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) did not practice again Friday, Oct. 24, and he's listed as doubtful for Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Green is highly unlikely to play, meaning you shouldn't risk starting him in your FantasyScore lineups. Mohamed Sanu ($5,700) will continue to see more targets in the passing game with Green out.

Bengals | A.J. Green not practicing

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 08:35:03 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is not practicing Friday, Oct. 24. It's the third straight day he has missed practice, making it unlikely that he'll be able to play in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to make other plans as Green keeps trying to heal. This is good news for Mohamed Sanu, who again is a relevant starter, including for FantasyScore players with his $5,700 salary (11.4% of cap).

Bengals | A.J. Green missing from practice

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 13:46:13 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) sat out of practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Green's status is very iffy heading into Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens. He's not a smart buy for $7,500 (15.0% of cap) at FantasyScore. Mohamed Sanu ($5,700) remains a much wiser purchase for your lineups.

Bengals | A.J. Green absent at practice

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 13:32:33 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) wasn't feeling good enough to return to practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. Head coach Marvin Lewis said Green won't play in Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens unless he's "significantly healed," but left the door open for Green to play. "It's hard for me to put a guy out there Sunday that I don't think can last a full game," Lewis said. "If we have A.J. for part of the game doing certain things, that would be great. I think we could operate offensively … I guess we'll cross that bridge when the time comes."

Fantasy Tip: Green could be severely limited if he does suit up against the Ravens, making him a very risky play for $7,500 (15.0% of cap) at FantasyScore. Although Mohamed Sanu ($5,700) came down to earth a bit last week, he's the best option in Cincy's passing game with Green beat up.

Bengals | A.J. Green's status up in the air

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 09:09:45 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) said his return from a toe injury is "still up in the air" heading into Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens. However, Green said he's making nice progress, and his toe feels much better. Green hasn't played since Week 5 against the New England Patriots. "It's probably not going to be 100 percent," Green said. "I hope it's just manageable and I can get through the season and be fine and still play at a high level."

Fantasy Tip: Green will likely be questionable this week and could be a game-time decision. How much he'll be able to play if he does suit up will be a big question. His FantasyScore price will likely be fairly high, so it's a big risk if you go with him.

Bengals | A.J. Green says he will play

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 19:08:02 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) said he will play Sunday, Oct. 26, against the Baltimore Ravens, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Fantasy Tip: Although Green's comments alone aren't enough to guarantee that he will suit up, they are encouraging. Still, check back throughout the week for updates on his status before using him at FantasyScore.

Bengals | A.J. Green making progress

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 12:17:18 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) has made significant progress in his rehab from his toe injury, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Lewis is not sure if Green will be able to play in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor Green's practice participation to get a better idea of his status for the game. Green would be a risky option if he is able to play, and owners on FantasyScore may want to consider using their money on other receivers.

Bengals | A.J. Green could play in Week 8

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 09:23:16 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) received a positive prognosis during his meeting with a foot specialist this week and has a chance to play in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor his situation during practice next week to see if he has a chance to play in Week 8. Green could be limited if he is active next week but could still be a good starting option in FantasyScore depending on the price.

Bengals | No timetable for A.J. Green

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 11:27:18 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) has no timetable for his return to action, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Green will miss his second straight start in Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts. He has been around the team all week but hasn't participated in any practices. Green has 17 catches for 314 yards and two touchdowns this year.

Fantasy Tip: You can forget about using Green this weekend at FantasyScore, and he will probably be a very risky option next week, too. Continue to keep tabs on Green's progress, but it looks like this injury could impact him well into the second half of the season.

Bengals | A.J. Green not practicing

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 10:00:25 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is not practicing Friday, Oct. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Green is not expected to play this weekend against the Indianapolis Colts. Don't use him in any of your fantasy football lineups. Mohamed Sanu ($5,900; 11.8% of cap) should continue to be Andy Dalton's favorite target in the meantime, with the likes of Brandon Tate, James Wright and Dane Sanzenbacher picking up the scraps.

Fantasy Tip: It is looking more and more likely that Green will not play in the team's Week 7 game. Green would cost $7,700 in FantasyScore this week, but even if he does play, he may be too risky to start.

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 08:04:09 -0700

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) will not play in Week 7 due to his toe injury.

Fantasy Tip: Mohamed Sanu should have another opportunity to shine against the Indianapolis Colts next week. He's worth consideration as a WR3 on FantasyScore at the right price. Giovani Bernard should also have increased work in the game and is a decent RB1 option.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) will not play in the Week 6 game against the Carolina Panthers, a source said Friday, Oct. 10. Green was wearing a walking boot on his right foot during a morning walkthrough Friday. Officially, he is listed as questionable.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid Green in FantasyScore leagues this weekend. Mohamed Sanu is a nice value at $4200 (or 8.4 percent of the cap) if Green is indeed officially inactive.

Bengals | A.J. Green won't play Sunday

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 08:59:35 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) will not play in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers, according to sources. Green had his right foot in a walking boot Friday, Oct. 10, during the team's walkthrough. Head coach Marvin Lewis said Green's injury was "a little more than" turf toe Thursday, Oct. 9. Green initially injured his toe in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: With Green and Marvin Jones out, expect plenty of targets for Mohamed Sanu ($4,200; 8.4% of cap). At that price, it's hard to leave Sanu out of your FantasyScore lineups against the Panthers. Don't forget about James Wright ($3,000), either.

Bengals | A.J. Green likely out for Week 6

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 08:22:30 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is expected to miss Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Time to go to contingency plans. As noted before, Mohamed Sanu will rise swiftly in our rankings update tonight and is a daily fantasy darling (a cheap $4,200 salary in FantasyScore). Giovani Bernard should see more targets, as well.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) arrived in a walking boot and is not working out in practice Friday, Oct. 10.

Bengals | A.J. Green not on the field

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 11:18:25 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Green is not expected to play in Week 6, so owners should keep him on the bench until he has recovered from his injury. Mohamed Sanu could be a fine lower cost option for owners on FantasyScore at $4,200 since he probably will be the Bengals' top receiver.

Bengals | Cincy won't change offensive game plan

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 10:20:58 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) may not play in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers, but offensive coordinator Hue Jackson refuses to change the game plan drastically if their receiving star doesn't play. "That's why I never put together a game plan based on one guy," said Jackson. "We're not going to crash our game plan. As a coordinator you just have to adapt. You never know what might happen." WR Mohamed Sanu is tied for the team lead with Green with 17 catches, and WR Dane Sanzenbacher can also be used.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is not expected to play in Week 6 after meeting with a foot doctor Thursday, Oct. 9, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: While things could change in the next few days, owners should look to find a replacement for Green in their lineups. Mohamed Sanu likely will be the team's No. 1 receiver for the game and could be a sleeper option for owners on FantasyScore at $4,200.

Bengals | A.J. Green to miss multiple games?

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 20:54:30 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) could potentially miss multiple games after aggravating his big toe injury in practice Wednesday, Oct. 8. Green had an MRI Wednesday, and he will meet with a foot specialist Thursday, Oct. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Green's status for Week 6 is very much in doubt. FantasyScore owners will want to steer far clear of Green and his $7700 salary cap figure, which accounts for 15.4 percent of the cap.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) was able to walk after apparently aggravating his toe injury Wednesday, Oct. 8, but was walking with a limp. Green threw his helmet and shoe after suffering the injury and was carted off the field.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see if Green will be able to practice this week in order to get a better idea of his status for Week 6. Green may not be the best option to use on FantasyScore at $7,700 if the injury lingers throughout the week.

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 10:33:28 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) left practice early Wednesday, Oct. 8, after apparently aggravating his toe injury during warmups.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to wait for an update on his availability for Week 6. Green costs $7,700 on FantasyScore this week but now may be a risky play depending on the severity of his injury.

Bengals | A.J. Green back on injury report

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 13:05:38 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, Oct. 3, and he's probable for Week 5 against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Green's toe caused him to sit out of a game earlier this year, so this is worth watching, but it's not expected to keep him out Sunday night. There's a good chance that Green will be faced off against Darrelle Revis. That shouldn't stop you from playing him, but he's expensive at FantasyScore ($7,700; 15.4% of cap).

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is active against the Tennessee Titans Sunday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Green ($7,900; 15.8% of your cap) is a must-start in all non-salary cap leagues. However, his price tag is quite steep on FantasyScore if he is limited at all.

Fantasy Tip: Green has a $7,900 (15.8% of your cap) price tag in Week 3 on FantasyScore. While it is ludicrous to shy away from Green on any given week, he carries a lot of risk when considering cost efficiency and injury limitations.

Bengals | A.J. Green returns to practice

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 13:04:05 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) was back at practice Thursday, Sept. 18, and he hasn't ruled out the possibility of playing in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans. "If it's feeling good, then I'm going to go," Green said. "If it's not, then we'll go from there." Green lined up out wide and ran at a good pace during practice. He felt the injury all of last week during practice, and he wasn't able to get full extension when he ran in Week 2. Head coach Marvin Lewis expects Green to play against the Titans. If he doesn't play, WR Mohamed Sanu will replace him as the No. 1 receiver.

Fantasy Tip: Green will likely wind up being questionable and could be a game-time decision Sunday morning. It's a risk to put him in your FantasyScore starting lineups. Sanu, at $4,900, is a smart buy, even if Green suits up.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) is likely to play in Week 3, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Fantasy Tip: Green ($7,900; 15.8% of your cap) is a big gamble to take this week on FantasyScore. However, he usually performs well enough to justify the hefty price tag.

Fantasy Tip: Green will try to get ready for the game this week, but the team could consider holding him out since they have a Week 4 bye, which would give him two weeks of rest. Owners will need to monitor his practice participation this week. Green costs $7,900 on FantasyScore and is a risk since his status for Week 3 is uncertain at this point.

Fantasy Tip: This is good news for Green and his owners. Owners should monitor his practice participation during the week to see if he is able to play Week 3. Green may not be the best option on FantasyScore this upcoming week because of his uncertain status.

Updating earlier reports, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (foot) has a strained ligament in his foot, as opposed to the original diagnosis of turf toe. It's unclear whether it's an aggravation of the injury that caused him to miss practice Thursday, Sept. 11, or if it's a new injury.

Fantasy Tip: Green's status for Week 3 is unclear. As previously stated, Mohamed Sanu's value rises to a good WR3 option for the upcoming week, even if Green plays.

Fantasy Tip: The team has a bye in Week 4, so the team could play it safe and hold him out next week. Keep tabs on his status throughout the week.
