Green is still a stud and a flat out steal. You just need to wait a bit to draft him due to him being nicked up and missing 2-3 weeks. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Most don't realize that A.J. Green is still an elite wide receiver. The reason he's not going anywhere near the elite receivers this year is due to his injury-plagued history. This decade, there are only four wide receivers who have posted WR2 or better numbers in a higher percentage of games than Green. Those players are Odell Beckham Jr., Julio Jones, Antonio Brown, and Michael Thomas. The difference? You can't get those guys in the third-round. If he stays healthy, he can help you win a fantasy championship. The issue is that he's already suffered an injury and is now expected to miss 1-3 weeks to start the season. It's torn ligaments in his ankle, which can definitely affect performance when he's on the field. He's no longer a safe pick.His teammate D.J. Moore is the favorite among the fantasy community, but Samuel actually performed better than him last year. Despite playing in just 12 games, Samuel hit WR2-type numbers in four games, while Moore hit that mark just three times while playing all 16 games. He may not have the consistent floor that Moore does, but he can help fill a few bye weeks if needed
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Draft him with expectations that he won't be available for you in September (ankle) 
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Injuries. Injuries. Injuries. The only reason why AJ Green can be had around the 5th round. He offers league-winning potential here but also can be a pick that brings you nothing in return depending on his health. No one has ever lost their draft in the fifth round. If Green returns week 4 and plays like he has in his career, people will have wished they drafted him earlier. 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Green is out for 1 to 3 weeks after an ankle injury so his stock has dropped. When he returns, though, can someone explain why everyone suddenly stopped believing Green to be a second-tier fantasy receiver. Every time he has played 16 games, Green has finished among the top 10 fantasy receivers. Sure, there have been two injuries in the last three seasons, but he was still dominant up until those. If you pro-rate his 2018 numbers out to a full season, we were looking at a pace of 90 receptions, 1,374 yards and 12 scores. Friends, that would have placed him sixth among wide receivers in fantasy scoring, just between Julio Jones and Michael Thomas.Samuel is one of several electric athletes in this Carolina offense. He can take any play to the house but also comes with rough weeks every now and then were fantasy owners are given just 2 receptions for a handful of yards. If you are willing to look past those, he makes for a strong flex play.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The big concern with Green is becoming durability. He only started 10 games in 2016 and 9 games in 2018. Now he has an ankle injury and he will miss regular season games. Green is shaping up as a boom / bust WR3. 
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
I just can't draft Green this season. He's injured every part of his body, and is now coming off toe surgery. He hasn't been worth has draft stock since 2015, and there's just no reason to believe he will be this season. Mixon and Boyd are going to have major roles in the offense, so Green can have a good season, but he's not going to return to his 2012-2015 form. Now at age 31, the risk just isn't worth it for Green, even at his mid third round ADP. There are plenty of studs still available in that range, many of whom have just as much upside, but without the risk.People are scared of Newton's shoulder, but there's absolutely no reason to be concerned. Players come back from these injuries all the time, and he's already back to throwing and he's going to be 100% for training camp. Samuel suffered a few injuries to end is rookie season, and to begin his sophomore season, but when he returned he looked amazing. He has an 88th percentile SPARQ-x score, a 62nd percentile breakout age, and a 100th percentile speed score. The former second round pick commanded 8 targets per game over the final 5 weeks, was 14th in fantasy points per route run, 16th in fantasy points per target and showed that he was able to run 10 different route combinations last season. This is a guy that had a very limited route tree in his first season, but stepped it up big time last year. He's one of the youngest possible third year WR's and the Panthers didn't add any legitimate WR threats in the draft or FA after losing Funchess.
