Bengals | A.J. Green limps off

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 18:38:47 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (knee) limped off the field with a right knee injury against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Aug. 28, but the team is reporting the injury is not serious.

Fantasy Tip: The initial news is encouraging, and as long as the knee issue is indeed minor, Green is a reliable WR1 in all formats.

Bengals | A.J. Green could miss early-season game

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 16:29:49 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green said there is "no way" he is missing the birth of his first child, and he would miss a regular season game if it comes to that. His first child is due in about a month.

Fantasy Tip: That's a perfectly understandable reason to sit out a game, and at least he's giving his owners fair warning a month in advance. That projects to about Week 3, so owners who still have to draft should take that into account, as well as Cincinnati's bye week in Week 9. Nonetheless, Green is still a valid WR1 option and should continue to be treated as such.

Bengals | A.J. Green feeling loose

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 11:56:12 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green said his mind is at ease entering the 2016 season. "I don't have to worry about contracts or anything like that," Green said. "I just go in there free, [with a] clear head, just go out there, work and have fun."

Fantasy Tip: How Green's mindset translates on the field remains to be seen, but an eased mind doesn't hurt. He's by far the Bengals' top receiving option, which means he'll probably still see plenty of double teams. He may have to work a little harder, but he should still be viewed as a late first-round pick or early-second round pick.

Bengals | Depth at receiver for Bengals

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 11:37:24 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WRs Mario Alford, Jake Kumerow and Brandon Tate were named by director of player personnel Duke Tobin as receivers who can contribute behind WRs A.J. Green, Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd.

Fantasy Tip: Tate might be the better bet of the three to have fantasy value with his experience and return ability, but none of them should be regarded as vital additions to fantasy rosters.

Bengals | Brandon LaFell picking up offense

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 19:01:18 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell has picked up the offense quickly, QB Andy Dalton said, and LaFell said he is ready to take advantage if defenses double team WR A.J. Green.

Fantasy Tip: LaFell has a chance to open the year as Cincinnati's No. 2 receiver, and he is worth grabbing in the later rounds of drafts in case he runs with the role.

Bengals | A.J. Green helping Tyler Boyd

Sun, 29 May 2016 20:11:46 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tyler Boyd said watching WR A.J. Green demonstrate techniques makes them easier to learn than just having someone tell him how to do them.

Fantasy Tip: Boyd is going to be given a chance to have a big role in Cincinnati's offense, and he is a great option to target in the later rounds of drafts.

Bengals | A.J. Green ready to carry offense

Fri, 27 May 2016 20:35:39 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green said he knows that the offense is only going to go as far as he and QB Andy Dalton can take it in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Green has been one of the steadiest receivers since breaking into the league, and losing Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu in free agency should lead to even more looks for Green. He is a sure-fire WR1.

Bengals | A.J. Green has dominated Pittsburgh

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 19:35:45 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green faces the Pittsburgh Steelers in the wild-card round of the playoffs Saturday, Jan. 9, and he combined for 17 catches for 250 yards and two touchdowns in two meetings with the Steelers during the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Green ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) has torched the Steelers porous secondary twice already, and he has shown solid chemistry with AJ McCarron ($5,800, 11.6% of cap). Teaming Green and McCarron at FantasyScore could pay dividends.

Bengals | A.J. Green finds the end zone

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 16:39:10 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green caught four passes for 34 yards and a touchdown in a 24-16 win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Green's yardage totals have been modest since AJ McCarron took over for Andy Dalton, but he has caught three scores from McCarron in the last four games. Green still deserves plenty of consideration at FantasyScore heading into the postseason.

Bengals | A.J. Green finds end zone

Mon, 28 Dec 2015 22:17:56 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green caught five passes for 57 yards and one touchdown in the Week 16 game against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: Green has seen his receiving yards dip a bit over the last two weeks but still has five touchdowns in his last five games. Green will have a favorable matchup against the Baltimore Ravens and could be a solid starting option in most leagues.
