A.J. Green caught 7-of-16 targets for 77 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals' 23-20, Week 13 loss to the Steelers on Monday night.

Green caught all seven of his passes -- scoring both touchdowns -- in the first half and looked well on his way to a massive night. He was whipping CB Coty Sensabaugh in coverage the entire first 30 minutes, getting wide open on his first score then scoring far too easily on his second. The Steelers had to bench Sensabaugh after the break and replaced him with rookie Cameron Sutton. Green suffered a number of drops in the second half as it was raining, and the entire Cincinnati offense went in the tank. Green should have had a third touchdown of roughly 60 yards in the third quarter, but it was called back on a weak holding penalty by Giovani Bernard. Green will be a WR1 next week at home against the Bears.

A.J. Green (illness) has been removed from the injury report.

Green was held out of Friday's practice but his status was never in doubt. He's our No. 7-ranked receiver for Week 13.
Dec 2 - 5:42 PM

A.J. Green caught 5-of-8 targets for 66 yards in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Browns.

Green led the Bengals in targets, but since the Bengals had their best rushing game of the season while holding a lead all afternoon, wasn't needed to carry the offense. As much as the day seemed quiet for standards, it was on par with the bulk of his performances for the season. Green has now had five or fewer receptions in nine of 11 games this season and gone over 75-yards receiving in four games. Despite that lack of volume and high-yardage totals, Green still has six touchdowns on the season and will be a lower-end WR1 option next week when the Bengals host the Steelers.
Nov 26 - 4:43 PM

A.J. Green nabbed four-of-nine targets for 50 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 11 win over the Broncos.

Green was silenced by Aqib Talib in the first half, catching his first pass with just over a minute left in the second quarter. The Bengals changed gears after halftime, managing to isolate Green against Bradley Roby. That proved to be a much better matchup for Green, who dusted Roby for an 18-yard touchdown to put Cincinnati up ten with under nine minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Green has now scored in six-of-eight games since Bill Lazor’s promotion to offensive coordinator. Even with a tough matchup looming against Jason McCourty, fantasy owners shouldn’t hesitate to fire up Green as a WR1 next week versus Cleveland.
Nov 19 - 9:16 PM

A.J. Green nabbed five-of-seven targets for 115 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 10 loss to the Colts.

Green racked up the majority of his fantasy points on a slant where he beat the corner and made the safety miss, running easily into the end zone for 70 yards. Green is consistently Dalton's best option but was out targeted by Brandon LaFell ten-to-seven. Green has a difficult matchup next week against the Broncos.
Nov 12 - 5:40 PM

A.J. Green will not be suspended following his ejection from Sunday's loss to the Jaguars.

Green missed the entire second half on Sunday, but it's still surprising after Green sent two punches and two choke slams Ramsey's way. Green accepted responsibility for his actions, saying he would accept whatever punishment was handed down. He's escaped with a fine. He has a solid Week 10 matchup in the Titans.
Nov 6 - 4:20 PM

A.J. Green was ejected from Sunday's Week 9 game with Jacksonville.

Green got into a fight with Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey at the end of the first half -- pushing him to the ground and throwing two punches. Both players were ejected and Green could be looking at a suspension. Green was held to one catch for six yards before exiting. Brandon LaFell and Tyler Kroft will pick up his targets.
Nov 5 - 2:24 PM

A.J. Green nabbed three-of-eight targets for 27 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 8 win over the Colts.

This was as good a matchup as Green has had all year but he and Andy Dalton never got on the same page. Pierre Desir was surprisingly effective in shadow coverage while Green shot himself in the foot with a surprising drop in the fourth quarter. He would have been a complete bust on Sunday if not for an eight-yard touchdown late in the first half. Things had been going swimmingly for Green since Bill Lazor’s promotion to offensive coordinator, but he’s now had two quiet games in a row and gets an absolutely brutal matchup against Jalen Ramsey and the Jaguars in Week 9.
Oct 29 - 5:40 PM

A.J. Green caught 3-of-6 passes for 41 yards in the Bengals' Week 7 loss to the Steelers.

Despite typically performing well against the Steelers', Green had a quiet game. QB Andy Dalton was under pressure early and often, struggling in general. One of Dalton's interceptions came on a bad pass that Green laid out for and tipped up. Green will have better games down the road.
Oct 22 - 8:18 PM

A.J. Green caught 7-of-13 passes for 189 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' Week 5 win over Buffalo.

Green burned CB Tre’Davious White on a first-quarter 77-yard TD. He was featured heavily, accounting for over half of Andy Dalton's yards. Green had some negative plays despite the huge stats. He couldn’t come down with catchable throws on both of Dalton’s interceptions, and had a second half fumble. Green went down with what looked like a knee injury late, but stayed in the game. He'll have the Bengals' Week 6 bye to get healthy.
Oct 8 - 4:27 PM

A.J. Green caught 5-of-7 targets for 63 yards and touchdown in the Bengals' Week 4 win at Cleveland.

Green caught a 7-yard touchdown for the Bengals' first score of the day in which he beat Jabrill Peppers on a corner route. Green could've had a much bigger day if the game wasn't so lopsided. After catching 10 passes for 141 yards through the first two weeks, Green has come back with 15 receptions for 168 yards and two scores over the past two weeks. Green will remain a set and forget option Week 5 at home versus the Bills.
Oct 1 - 4:21 PM

A.J. Green caught 10-of-13 targets for 111 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' 27-24, Week 3, overtime loss to the Packers.

The squeaky wheel got the grease in predictable fashion. Green's words after the Week 2 loss to the Texans at home played a large part in the firing of OC Ken Zampese. New play-caller Bill Lazor made it a point to scheme the ball to Green with quick passes. Green's 10-yard touchdown got the scoring started in the first quarter. It was a perfect dart from Andy Dalton. Green started slow but should be in for a big rest of the season. He gets the Browns on the road in Week 4.
Sep 24 - 7:50 PM

Speaking after Thursday night's Week 2 loss to the Texans, A.J. Green intimated he needs the ball more.

"We are playing like sh-- right now. We got to find a way to get our playmakers the ball. That's it. It's a superstar-driven league," Green, one of the league's true superstars, said. "I feel like – no disrespect to nobody else – that ball should be mine somewhere somehow. ... I want the ball." Green has seen a combined 18 targets through two games, which is good volume, but considering how poorly this offense has played, he needs it even more. Expect the Bengals to regroup and grease the squeaky wheel come Week 3 against Green Bay.
Sep 15 - 8:32 AM

A.J. Green caught 5-of-8 targets for 67 yards in the Bengals' Week 2 loss to the Texans.

Green's night would have been a total loss had he not managed to pull down a 50-yard bomb between three Texans defensive backs. Andy Dalton simply heaved the ball down the field, and All-Pro Green managed to track it. With Dalton going completely off the rails, Green now has just 10 catches for 141 yards through two games. The Packers aren't an overly-imposing Week 3 matchup, but Green should maybe be considered a lower-end WR1 until/if the Bengals figure out how to get the car out of neutral.
