A.J. Green caught 2-of-10 targets for 17 yards in Week 17 against Baltimore.

It ends a disappointing season from Green, who had just three games over 100 yards. Green slumped in the second half, failing to score any touchdowns over the final month. Despite facing constant double teams, Green still managed to go over 1,000 yards for the sixth time in seven years. Look for Cincinnati to upgrade their supporting cast behind Green this offseason.

A.J. Green caught 6-of-10 targets for 81 yards in the Bengals' Week 16 win over the Lions.

Green was blanketed by CB Darius Slay early and wasn't able to get much going until the second half. He could have had a bigger day but was called for offensive pass interference and had a few passes underthrown. Green also made a few key receptions to help lock up the game for the Bengals in the 4th quarter. He has a tough matchup against the Ravens in Week 16.

A.J. Green managed two catches for 30 yards on four targets in the Bengals' Week 15 loss to the Vikings.

Green had a rough outing, drawing a double-team often. CB Xavier Rhodes matched up with him otherwise. With the Bengals offense sputtering the last two weeks Green's receiving output has suffered. He has an easier matchup against the Lions in Week 16.

A.J. Green managed five catches for 64 yards on 12 targets in the Bengals' Week 14 loss to the Bears.

He also lost a fumble on a sideline catch in the second half. The Bears simply won their battles against Green, whose every target was contested in a game where the Bengals couldn't get any of their pass catchers free. Green will have another tough draw in Week 15 against Xavier Rhodes' Vikings in Minnesota.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 02:24:00 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.

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.
Sun, Oct 22, 2017 08:18:00 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.
