The only time Green has been targeted since suffering a toe injury in an October 2018 game against the Bucs was a 7-yard reception in Week 13 that year, when he reaggravated the injury and later had to undergo surgery. He then tore ligaments in his ankle last July and ended up missing all of 2019. He enters 2020 with as many question marks as any top-40 fantasy receiver.Watkins missed six of K.C.'s final seven regular-season games in 2018 before returning to rack up 10 catches for 176 yards over a pair of playoff games. He began '19 with nine catches for 198 yards and three TDs in the season opener, then averaged fewer than 37 yards with no scores over his final 13 regular-season games before totaling 288 yards over three post-season wins.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
A.J. Green has massive question marks around him entering the 2020 season. After sitting out all of last season and half of 2018, it's closing in on two years since we last saw him play. When he's been on the field in the past though, he's been sensational. Now joined by Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins, John Ross, Auden Tate and Joe Mixon there's plenty of target competition but if Joe Burrow can get the Bengals rolling, Green can return to his truly elite upside. He's a massive gamble but when you're only playing a 6th round cost, it's worth the gamble.Here's some unexpected Sammy Watkins trivia: He received more targets than Tyreek Hill in 2019, he has the same cap hit as Hill and he's only one year older! I'm not saying Watkins and Hill are even in the same universe fantasy-wise but it is unreasonable to totally dismiss Watkins. We've seen how busy he can get when Hill (or potentially Kelce) is out and he's still had some big games with everybody fit. I want pieces of this Chiefs offense and Watkins is likely to get first crack at the WR2 role. That's worth drafting.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
I get it, he hasn't been healthy the last two years. However, when he's been on the field, Green has been a legitimate superstar. Since 2000, here's the list of wide receivers who've posted WR2 or better type numbers at a higher percentage than Green: Michael Thomas, Julio Jones, Antonio Brown, and Odell Beckham. That's the end of the list. He's played his entire career with Andy Dalton. Now moving to Joe Burrow, the quality of the targets should improve. You could argue that Green didn't have a chance to work with Burrow this offseason, but that's the case with all of Burrow's new group of pass catchers. There is legitimate top-10 upside with Green, which is extremely hard to find where he's being drafted. There's risk, but with where he's being drafted, it's worth it.Does anyone else believe that Watkins may have played through injury in 2019? He hadn't tallied anything less than 8.3 yards per target over the previous four years, and that's despite some subpar quarterback talent in Buffalo and Los Angeles. Knowing that Watkins is the No. 2 option at wide receiver in a Patrick Mahomes-led offense and that he's going outside the top-50 wide receivers is bananas. Sure, he was bad in 2019, but he looked like the player we thought he'd be once they got to the playoffs, as he compiled 14 receptions for 288 yards and a touchdown on 18 targets in their three playoff games. The Chiefs also had an opportunity to move on from Watkins this offseason, but they decided to keep him on the roster. He may not be an every-week option from the get-go, but knowing you have a player tied to Patrick Mahomes who saw six-plus targets in 10-of-17 games last year should carry some weight. Snagging him as a WR4/5 with upside makes too much sense, as we can't let one inefficient year erase what he's been throughout his career. There's an avenue to him finishing as a WR3 without injury in front of him.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Can we really trust A.J. Green to stay healthy? Who knows. But at his current ADP, he's tough to pass on. If you're a risk-averse player, Green is not for you, but if you don't mind the risk, Green could end up being a mid-round league winner.Only the real risk-takers go after a guy like Watkins. We all know the upside is there, especially in the Chiefs offense but whether it's due to injury or simply poor performance, he can never string together a strong season. He is a boom or bust flex play at best until he proves he can stay healthy and play at a high level consistently.

Green doesn't have the upside that he had in previous seasons with all the new additions to this offense, but he should still provide fantasy value in 2020. He's someone who I'm comfortable deploying as a WR3 on my roster with the potential that he delivers some huge performances here or there.Watkins has the talent to be a top-24 WR for fantasy football and he's in the right offense for that to happen. For some reason though, Watkins just has not been able to be consistent and he's burned fantasy owners year after year. Watkins is nothing more than a WR4 this season at best.

Could return to his immediate target hog ways. Plus, Burrow seems like an obvious and immediate upgrade... but Green has played with Dalton his whole career. Burrow might not lock onto him quite like the Red Rocket. Mixed in with some major injury concerns, Green is a risky investment.

 Targets a game: 2019 - 7 2018 - 6.6 If we can stop trying to call him a bust based on his early career trajectory, and just accept him as a flex play in a dangerous offense we will live a much happier life. His health has been problematic, so I get that. He is not a WR1 or 2, so live with it, and don't draft him as anything more.
