A.J. Green caught 8-of-8 targets for 169 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' Week 7 win over the Browns.
Green made the most of his targets. His biggest play was a 48-yard touchdown grab on a Hail Mary play at the end of the first half. There were four Browns defensive players draped on Green on the play, but he tipped the ball to himself and was able to corral it as he went to the ground. The Bengals threw for less than 100 yards after halftime as they ended up winning by two touchdowns. Green gets a draw with the Redskins in Week 8. Redskins shadow CB Josh Norman was injured in Week 7, so we'll see if he's available to match Green. Oct 23 - 4:02 PM

A.J. Green caught 6-of-10 targets for 88 yards Week 6 against the Patriots.

Green was fine even if not spectacular against the Patriots. He made a couple of big catches down the left sideline to extend drives, and he could have had a touchdown on a better throw from Andy Dalton on a fade in the second quarter. He was also tackled at the two in the first half. Green did not do much after the Patriots took over in the third quarter, however, and has now been held below 90 yards and without a touchdown in 4-of-6 games. He has exploded for 353 yards and two scores in his other two outings, however, and he could be looking at another eruption against the Browns next week.

A.J. Green (calf) practiced in full again on Friday.

Green will be in the starting lineup against the Patriots.

A.J. Green (calf) returned to practice Thursday, getting in a "full" session.

As expected, Wednesday looks like it was just a maintenance day. Green will be good to go against the Patriots Sunday.

A.J. Green (calf) did not practice Wednesday.

Green was present at practice, but didn't do anything besides hang out in sweatpants. It sounded like more of a maintenance day than anything. Check back on Thursday, but expect Green to play Week 6 against the Patriots.
Oct 12 - 3:54 PM

A.J. Green caught 4-of-7 passes for 50 yards in the Bengals' Week 5 loss to the Cowboys.

Despite mediocre defensive personnel, the Cowboys have effectively limited opposing top receivers all season long and Sunday's matchup was no different for Green, who faced tight coverage from Mo Claiborne and Brandon Carr and couldn't connect downfield with Andy Dalton. Green could really use Tyler Eifert's presence to create some space on the field. The Bengals head into Foxboro for Week 6.
Oct 9 - 7:26 PM

A.J. Green caught 10-of-12 targets for 173 yards and a touchdown in Cincinnati's Week 4 win over the Dolphins.

Going to work against no-names Xavien Howard and Tony Lippett, Green already had eight catches for 123 yards and his score by halftime. He didn't need to do more after the break of a non-competitive game. 3/77/1 of Green's production came on one first quarter drive. He beat perfect coverage from Howard for a 51-yard catch down the right sideline before clownsuiting Lippett on a screen for his score. The 10-catch effort was already Green's second of 2016. He's now averaging eight grabs per game. He should feast again against the Cowboys in Week 5.
Sep 29 - 11:28 PM

A.J. Green caught 8-of-11 targets for 77 yards in the Bengals' Week 3 loss to the Broncos.

Green's lowlight was a third-down drop late in the game that would have given the Bengals a fighting chance, before Demaryius Thomas' game-sealing 55-yard touchdown bomb. Still, PPR owners should be happy Green was able to emerge from this game with 15.7 fantasy points against the Broncos' elite defense. The Bengals' schedule loosens up considerably going forward as they take on the Dolphins on Thursday Night Football in Week 4.
Sep 25 - 4:29 PM

A.J. Green hauled in 2-of-8 targets for 38 yards Week 2 against the Steelers.

Both of his catches came in the first half, and he was only targeted twice after the break despite Andy Dalton throwing 27 times in the second half. Green did draw a long defensive pass interference in the third quarter, but he was a non-factor otherwise. With the Broncos next up on the schedule, the road will not get any easier for Green next week.
Sep 18 - 5:07 PM

A.J. Green secured 12-of-13 targets for 180 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' Week 1 win over the Jets.

We believe he racked up every single catch against Darrelle Revis, who shadowed Green all game including when he motioned into the slot. Green was essentially the Bengals' entire offense in this one, piling up receptions on bubble screens in addition to toasting Revis for a 54-yard touchdown deep down the middle. So long as he stays healthy, Green is headed for a career year on a team that needs him more than ever. He has an even more favorable matchup in Week 2 at Pittsburgh.

A.J. Green said he "banged knees" with Jaguars CB Davon House in Sunday night's preseason game.

"I'm fine now," he added. The injury originally looked like an ankle tweak, but it sounds like Green escaped with a knee bruise. The Bengals are counting on Green as much as ever this season after losing Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu to free agency, and Tyler Eifert (ankle) until Week 4 at the soonest.
Aug 28 - 10:01 PM

A.J. Green limped off the field in the first quarter of the Bengals' third preseason game with a knee injury, but the team says the issue is not serious.

Green appeared to suffer the injury when he planted his right leg along the sideline. He did run a route after the injury, but he limped to the sidelines after the play. The training staff reportedly did not find any issues when testing the stability of the knee, and Green walked it off on the sideline. Even though he appears to have escaped without a serious injury, Green's night is done.
Aug 28 - 8:40 PM

A.J. Green's first child is due in "about a month."

Green said Thursday that he "will miss a game if it comes to that," and there's "no way" he would miss the birth of his first born. This is a respectable stance from Green, but also one that could have fantasy implications. It sounds like the child's due date is near the Bengals' Week 3 game against Denver.
Aug 25 - 6:31 PM

ESPN Bengals reporter Coley Harvey wrote A.J. Green and Andy Dalton were "more in sync this spring than they have been during any offseason workout of their career."

Two of the Bengals' most valuable players performing well in non-contact work isn't much of a story, but it's worth noting because Dalton and Green may have to do more individual heavy lifting this year. Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu are gone, and Tyler Eifert (ankle) is not considered likely to be ready for Week 1. If Green stays healthy, he should reset his career high in targets.
Jul 20 - 9:58 PM

A.J. Green said the Bengals offense will go as far as he and Andy Dalton take it.

"We don’t need no coaches or anybody to push us," Green continued. "We know what we have to do to get this offense to go. We know the offense run through us." Especially with Tyler Eifert (ankle) questionable for the start of the season, Green will be the unquestioned focal point of the passing game. He has a reasonable chance to set a new career-high in targets.
