Green's injuries are becoming a pain in the butt for his fantasy backers, but we still can see that he has plenty of ability when healthy.Bryant is in the wrong offense to put up huge numbers, but will continue to see good touchdown opportunities and should be efficient when he does get targets with so much attention going toward Ezekiel Elliott.
Sablich Brothers
5th Down Fantasy
Played nine games with hamstring tear, stats project to 117/1,714/7 over 16 games; six catches for over 40 yards tied for league lead (despite missing seven games); a healthy Eifert takes away red zone targets; overall very high floor if healthy.15.9 YPC highest of his career in 2016; played banged up but stats prorate to 67/1,067/11 over 16 games; topped 70 yards in seven of final eight games with eight TDs; currently a clean bill of health.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Green struggled with injuries and missed six games this year, but he still posted 66 receptions for 964 yards and 4 touchdowns this year. He should be a WR1 in 2017 if he can stay healthy. Bryant has some early season struggles playing with rookie QB Dak Prescott, but his numbers in proved in the second half of the season and he will benefit from Prescott entering his second season. He also could see an uptick in targets without RB Ezekiel Elliott there for the first six games.

QB List
A.J. Green missed the last six games of the year last year with a hamstring injury but was well on his way to a career-best year. The Bengals added some more offensive weapons in the draft with running back Joe Mixon and wide receiver Joe Ross, and given that Green had only missed four games in his career before last season, there's no reason to expect he won't be excellent again this year.People were understandably worried about about Dez coming into last year because we all had no idea what we'd get out of quarterback Dak Prescott. Well, Prescott had a fantastic year and has proven himself to be a very capable quarterback. Now, a lot of the attention of the Cowboys offense will go towards running back Ezekiel Elliott, and certainly health is always a concern for Dez, but he should still put up good enough numbers, especially touchdown numbers, to warrant WR1 consideration.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Green missed 6 games to injury last season, but was on pace for his 1500+ receiving yards before he went down, which would have been his top season yet. If he does indeed look 100%, there is no shame in taking him as high as #6 overall.The last time Dez was healthy, he finished as the WR4, but that was before Zeke came into town. Now that they have one of the best running games in football and go against the toughest SOS for WRs, Bryant should take a big step back even if he stays on the field.
Brandon Funston
Fantasy Analyst
Was on pace for a career-best 1,700+ receiving yards before a hammy injury derailed his season in Week 11 - Cincy loaded up on weapons in the draft (RB Mixon, WR J. Ross), and if TE Eifert can stay healthy, Green should really benefit from these added diversionsStill an elite talent that is probably younger (28) than you give him credit for - he's an elite red zone threat (3rd most TDs among WRs through 1st 100 games of a career) who looked nicely synched w/ rookie QB Prescott by season's end
Kevin Roberts

Green probably would have been fantasy's top WR had he stayed healthy last year. He feels like a steal stillPeople seem to forget how dominant and explosive Dez Bryant can be. He's being disrespected in fantasy drafts right now.

In the 10 games Green played in 2016, he averaged 18.6 points per game in PPR formats. Auction Value $36 After returning from a foot injury last season, Dez caught 40 passes for eight touchdowns over an eight-week span. Auction Value $29
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Most consistent WR in the NFL, if Cincy wasn't knocked out early AJ would have been back for the last few games.The connection between he and Dak took some time to develop, but the pre-season should solidify that. New information!!! According to PFF (Barrett), Dez will see the top corner-backs in the league in 10 games this year. Dez apparently feeds off of weak CB's and suffers against the top ones.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Green was dominating in 2016 before going down with a season-ending injury in Week 11. Throughout the first 10 weeks of the season, Green was the No. 4 fantasy receiver and on pace for over 1,700 yards and seven touchdowns. In the years he played all 16 games, his finishes are WR4, WR4, and WR7. Stay healthy, A.J.He'd be much higher on this list if he didn't have to go up against the Giants twice (held him to two catches for 18 yards on 14 targets last year), Josh Norman twice, Broncos, Cardinals, Falcons, and Seahawks. The Cowboys don't have a legit No. 2 receiver to take attention away from Bryant, but despite that, he still slides in as my No. 10 receiver.
