A.J. Green caught 4-of-12 targets for 79 yards in Sunday night's Week 11 loss to the Cardinals.
Green was shadowed by Patrick Peterson most of the night, but beat Jerraud Powers on a 42-yard catch that set up the Bengals’ first touchdown. He’s managed only 146 yards on 19 targets over the last two games. Green played through an injury late, but should be fine. He’ll have another difficult matchup against the Rams in Week 12.

A.J. Green caught 5-of-7 targets for 67 yards in the Bengals' Week 10 loss to the Texans on Monday night.

Green went nearly three full quarters without a catch in this one after reeling in three early passes and then not catching another ball until there was 2:56 left in the fourth quarter. His fifth and final grab of the night proved costly, as Green caught a 4th-and-6 pass at the Texans' 23-yard line with 40 seconds left in the game and the Bengals trailing by four. At the end of the play, a Texans' defensive back came in and forced a fumble as Green was going to ground, ending the game. Green has now been held under 100 yards without a touchdown in five of the Bengals' last six games. He's still a locked-in WR1, but it'd be nice to see him have an A.J. Green-type game soon. He'll square off with Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals in Week 11 on the road.
Nov 17 - 12:16 AM

A.J. Green absorbed four of six targets for 53 yards in the Bengals' Week 9 win over the Browns.

The Bengals went ground-heavy against Cleveland’s league-worst run defense. That made Green a relative non-factor. The six targets he saw were his fewest since Week 2 against the Chargers. At the season’s halfway point, Green is on pace for a career-high 100 catches. He’ll be a WR1 against Houston in Week 10.
Nov 5 - 11:49 PM

A.J. Green caught 11-of-17 targets for 118 yards and a touchdown in Cincinnati's Week 8 win over the Steelers.

Green was a bright spot in an otherwise ugly game. His touchdown came on a nice slant from the Steelers' nine-yard line. The 11 catches were a season high, though it was Green's second 10-grab performance of 2015. He has a juicy Thursday night matchup in the Browns' collapsing defense.
Nov 1 - 5:27 PM

A.J. Green said the Bengals offense will continue to take what the defense gives.

"We just stay true to our offense, man," Green said. "We run our offense. We don’t change for a lot of people. We have so many weapons. So if the first option is not open, the second or third or fourth option could be open." The philosophy has led to an explosive offense and 6-0 start, but it has also limited Green to just one top-12 weekly finish as teams double cover and use safety help on the talented receiver. The success of Marvin Jones, Tyler Eifert and others should eventually open up space for Green, but he could have a few more "down" games than usual this season. Even so, he is a clear WR1 and will be a great play against the Steelers following the bye week.
Oct 20 - 9:36 AM

A.J. Green caught 4-of-7 targets for 36 yards in the Bengals' Week 6 win over the Bills.

Green was locked up in impressive rookie LCB Ronald Darby's coverage pretty much all day. No. 2 receiver Marvin Jones handled RCB Stephon Gilmore much better and posted a 9-95-1 line on 12 targets. Green and the Bengals head into their bye before squaring off with a leaky Steelers defense in Week 8.
Oct 18 - 7:15 PM

A.J. Green corralled six catches for 78 yards on eight targets in the Bengals' Week 5 win over the Seahawks.

He got off to a blistering start and actually had a 72-yard touchdown called back on a holding penalty by Andrew Whitworth. Green was thoroughly dismantling Cary Williams before the Seahawks wisely switched Williams out in favor of Richard Sherman. After that, Sherman followed Green wherever he went and eventually Andy Dalton stopped looking his way. The Bengals even tried moving Green into the slot but Sherman continued to dominate. Green was held in check this week but he should have an easier time against Buffalo in Week 6.
Oct 11 - 5:08 PM

A.J. Green secured 7-of-10 targets for 82 yards in the Bengals' Week 4 win over the Chiefs.

Green made his lone big play of the game on an early 36-yard bomb down the left sideline, ending the first quarter with five catches for 73 yards on five targets. Unfortunately, the Bengals slow played the game the rest of the way nursing a big lead, while Kansas City settled for a whopping seven field goals. Green will remain an every-week WR1 entering a Week 5 date with Richard Sherman's Seahawks.
Oct 4 - 4:34 PM

A.J. Green nabbed 10-of-13 targets for 227 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals' Week 3 win over the Ravens.

What a performance. Green actually got off to a sluggish start with a bad drop in the first quarter that could have been intercepted. But after that, he was money. Green’s 80-yard touchdown scamper against an outclassed Jimmy Smith in the fourth quarter was one for the ages. He exploded for 154 yards and two scores after halftime. Week 3 was a statement game for Green. Look for him to go nuts again next week versus Kansas City.
Sep 27 - 5:09 PM

A.J. Green (knee) is active for Week 3 against the Ravens.

Green sat out Wednesday's practice because of a knee injury but returned a day later. He's been a mild disappointment with just eight catches to this point but remains a WR1 until further notice.
Sep 27 - 12:30 PM

A.J. Green (knee) is probable for Week 3.

Green is a must-start WR1 for Sunday's matchup with Baltimore.
Sep 25 - 6:40 PM

A.J. Green (knee) returned to practice on Thursday.

He got in a full session. There was never any real concern about Green missing Week 3. He will be a must-start WR1 against the Ravens.
Sep 24 - 11:28 AM

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

Green played in all but five snaps of Sunday's win. There's been no indication his knee injury is serious. Green's status will be updated on Thursday.
Sep 23 - 4:25 PM

A.J. Green caught 3-of-4 targets for 45 yards and a touchdown Week 2 against the Chargers.

Green climbed over Brandon Flowers in the back of the end zone and executed a perfect toe tap for the Bengals' first touchdown of the game. He was uncharacteristically quiet the rest of the game, however, and now has just 108 receiving yards through two games. Despite the early struggles, he will be a must-start next week against the Ravens.
Sep 20 - 5:11 PM

A.J. Green secured 5-of-8 targets for 63 yards in the Bengals' Week 1 win over the Raiders.

A hot play in DFS circles this week, Green looked good on the field, particularly on a 30-yard reception up the seam lined up at slot receiver. He "missed" as a fantasy start by dropping a touchdown pass on a play where Green had Raiders top CB Travis Carrie clearly beaten. Expect more production out of the Bengals' 1A wideout when the team hosts San Diego in Week 2.
