Green set career highs in receptions (98) and yards (1,426) this past season, and matched his previous career high in touchdowns (11). Green continues to improve with QB Andy Dalton year after year, look for Green and Dalton to improve on a productive 2013.
Signed a 5-year, $36.5 million dollar contract with in $15 guaranteed cash with the New York Jets. Decker, 27, set career highs in catches (87) and receiving yards (1,288 yards) with Denver last season, scoring 11 touchdowns. Decker is a physical, largely sure-handed wideout who moves the chains and can beat defensive backs deep. Unfortunately, he's downgrading quarterbacks in spectacular fashion going from Peyton Manning to Geno Smith, and will be the focus of defensive attention in New York after serving as Manning's No. 3 or 4 option. Those numbers that will be very difficult to duplicate with the Jets.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
An outstanding pick for 2014 and should be on your list to use with your pick in the first round.
Let's hope Michael Vick looks Decker's way often. There are a number of question marks around Decker, but he is a solid choice.
  
Addison Witt
Fantasy Team Advice
New offensive coordinator, Hue Jackson, will implement more of a run-heavy offensive scheme with the Bengals' three-headed monster at RB (Bernard, Hill, Green-Ellis). However, there is no reason to expect a dip in Green's numbers. He is as consistent as it comes, averaging 1,278 yards and 9.7 touchdowns through his first three years in the league.
 
  
Raju Byfield

Optimus Prime is QB proof
Will not post as gaudy numbers as he did with Peyton but Decker has talent and should push for WR2 numbers
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Green finished the 2013 season with 98 receptions for 1,426 yards and 11 receiving touchdowns. He should be a dominant fantasy receiver for the next decade and is entering a contract year.
It will be interesting to see if Decker can have consistent fantasy numbers in the New York Jets chaotic passing game, but he will be the top option and could have some WR3 success.
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
No. 2 fantasy WR in W1, displaying a few of his patented acrobatic moves along the way.
 
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
No-brainer top 4 fantasy WR heading into 2014.
Peyton Manning to Smith-Vick is an astronomical downgrade at the QB position.
  
Smitty
Fantasy Football Starters
Green has all kinds of value this year, as he is falling roughly 5-6 picks below Calvin, and he could score just as much. Green is a fantastic bookend type pick in 2014!
 
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
A.J. has been a rock, but scheme change might lead to a minor downtick
QB downgrade won't crush his value; a bargain at his current ADP.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
He's right up there with Megatron and Dalton has tunnel vision on him for days. Not much not to like here.
Very talented with good speed and ball skills. Only problem is he's in a new system and has no quarterback.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Green is a beast and will continue to be a top receiver for a long while. I do think his upside is capped a little by Hue Jackson's run game and the Bengals tough defense.
Decker will miss Peyton Manning, but he's no slouch on his own. He'll be the #1 receiver for the Jets and a great red zone target with his size and ability. Don't sleep on Decker.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Green has been a model of consistency over the past 2 seasons, yielding 11 TDs in each season with 1350 Receiving Yards in 2012 and 1426 Receiving Yards in 2013. Over his three-year career, Green has never dipped below the 1,000 Yard Mark. Previous OC Jay Gruden allowed Andy Dalton to toss 586 passes last season (The Red Rifle averaged 543 Passing Attempts over the past 3 Seasons). New OC Hue Jackson is dedicated to the ground game and the philosophy will be adapted in 2014. Expect a minor regression from A.J. Green as the Cincinasty Bengals will look to jam Bernard and Jeremy Hill down teams throats come opening game.
Deckers QB play literally went from Worst to Best and back to Worst with Orton/Tebow to Peyton Manning to Geno Smith. This season is Deckerís first look at being a WR1 in his career as he enters the AFC East where he will square up against Patriots Darrelle Revis twice, Bills Stephon Gilmore twice and Dolphins Brent Grimes twice. Tough luck! Decker somehow managed to put up 8 TDs with the Orton/Tebow QB duo and is coming off 3 straight years with 1000+ yards. Deckerís 2014 outlook is solely in the hands of Geno Smiths production, but heís a great value pick if Geno Smith can take a step forward. Meanwhile, Decker and his hot wife will continue to post weird Pregnant Selfies (See LegionReport.com).
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
11 receiving TDs, 2 years in a row. Green added almost 10 pounds to his frame in the off season, which will allow him to be a more viable red zone threat this season.
