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.Here's your risk/reward player in the Round 4-5 range, as Watkins presents solid WR3 marks with Tyreek Hill in the lineup, but presents top-12 upside if Hill were to be suspended and/or miss time. Watkins also comes with health risks, as his foot injury acted up again in 2018, meaning this is a chronic injury that can resurface at any point. You know the risk, but you also know the potential reward. If drafting him, surround him with a few safer players on your roster
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Draft him with expectations that he won't be available for you in September (ankle) 
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Every year he is drafted in the middle rounds and there is a select crowd super excited about drafting him. Every time, whether it be inconsistency or injury, it winds up a bad pick. Not drafing him at ADP.
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.Watkins hasn't received for 600 or more yards in any of the last three seasons. Granted, he has plenty of skill and perhaps the best quarterback in football but with both Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce ahead of him, Watkins is nothing more than a WR3.
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. 
Sean Koerner
The Action Network
 tyreek hill news hurt him. could be 4th option behind Kelce, Hill, and even Damien Williams
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.Watkins value depends entirely on Hill's suspension. I do expect Hill to be suspended for at least some length of time, but It's impossible to know how long it will be. If he were to miss the season, then Watkins becomes a huge value at his current ADP. If he only misses 4 games to start the season, then he's probably being over drafted.
