A.J. Green held back by sputtering offense in Week 2

WR A.J. Green caught five passes on eight targets for 67 yards in Week 2 vs. Houston.

Fantasy Impact

Green is a top-five WR in the league, but he is being held back from performing like it in fantasy because of the offensive ineptitude of the Bengals. Teams are double- and triple-teaming him because they don't think anyone else can beat them right now. If you spent a first round pick on Green, you can either hold him and hope things turn around, or sell. However, you are likely going to sell low, unless you can convince someone to buy off name value alone. Green will look to rebound next week against the Packers.

A.J. Green grabs five receptions in Week 1

A.J. Green had five receptions for 74 yards in the Bengals' Week 1 loss to the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

Green is still the top guy for the Bengals and one of the top receivers in the NFL. Even in a terrible game for the Bengals he showed his talent for his fantasy owners, by turning in a solid, albeit unspectacular, effort.

A.J. Green totals 43 yards in third preseason game

A.J. Green caught 4-of-6 targets for 43 yards in the Bengals' third preseason game.

Fantasy Impact

Green has been as steady as any WR over the last several seasons. He's reportedly fully healthy following his injury-shortened 2016 campaign. He's currently projected as a high-end WR1 and being selected in the first round by our expert consensus.

A.J. Green 'cleared' for football activities

Cincinnati Bengals beat writer Geoff Hobson reports wide receiver A.J. Green (hamstring) is 'cleared' for football activities.

Fantasy Impact

Now that Green has been medically cleared for football activities from a torn hamstring suffered in Week 11 of the 2016 season, he will be ready for spring workouts as expected. Barring a setback, Green will be a full-go for the start of the 2017 campaign. With Brandon LaFell set to hit the open free agent market, the Bengals could address the wide receiver position this offseason to add a compliment to Green.

A.J. Green placed on IR

The Cincinnati Bengals placed wide receiver A.J. Green (hamstring) on the injured-reserve list Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Green, who was already ruled out for Sunday's season finale against Baltimore, was placed on IR Saturday. He will finish an injury-plagued 2016 campaign with 66 receptions for 964 yards receiving and four touchdowns including four 100-yard receiving games. Green will enter next season once again as the top wideout on the Bengals.
