Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (biceps) said he's dealing with a bruised right biceps, but he expects to play in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. X-rays on his arm during the game Monday, Dec. 22, came back negative. "If I can go, I'm going. No matter what it is," Green said. "We're playing for something big. We're playing for home-field advantage."
Fantasy Tip: Green looked to be in significant pain while gutting through the game Monday night. If he's on the field against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the finale, it'll be hard not to look his way at FantasyScore for $5,555. The Steelers have been a great matchup for wide receivers this year, especially in recent weeks.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners will want to pay close attention to the practice reports this week, including the official injury report Friday. If Green cannot play for some reason, Mohamed Sanu and Jermaine Gresham would benefit the most.

Fantasy Tip: Hill went over 1,000 yards, becoming the first Broncos rookie to hit the mark since Corey Dillon in 1997. Hill's 85-yard touchdown scamper in the first half likely made the difference in plenty of seasonal fantasy league championships.

Fantasy Tip: Bernard's touchdown was his first since Oct. 26 against the Baltimore Ravens. He is clearly behind Jeremy Hill on the depth chart, but he can still be effective. FantasyScore owners should consider Bernard as a low-end RB2 or flex play heading into Week 17.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (arm) suffered an arm injury early in the first quarter of the Week 16 game against the Denver Broncos Monday, Dec. 22. He ended up with no receptions on four targets.

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (arm) was able to check back into the Week 16 game against the Denver Broncos in the second quarter after having precautionary X-rays in the locker room.
Fantasy Tip: Green is still searching for his first reception of the game in the waning moments of the first half. So far, it has been a ground-based attack with plenty of targets for Jermaine Gresham when the Bengals do pass.

Fantasy Tip: Hill was able to make his way off under his own power, although he appeared hobbled. He is already over 100 yards rushing in the first half thanks to an 85-yard touchdown run. He has helped many fantasy owners to their championship trophy right now, even if he doesn't play another down.
