A.J. Green Fantasy Football Outlook (2021)

Is he done? That's the question most believe has already been answered, though the Cardinals beg to differ. Giving him $8 million is not peanuts by any means and they have talked about how big of a role he'll have with the team, including Kyler Murray who said, "A lot of people are sleeping on him." The Bengals wide receivers all underperformed expectations last year, though Green was the ringleader, finishing with 63.8 fewer fantasy points than his opportunity suggested. We saw Hopkins make a difference in year one of the Cardinals system, so it's not like they discriminate against new bodies. Green is currently free in fantasy drafts, and knowing this team targeted wide receivers 65.5 percent of the time in 2020 (sixth in NFL), it makes sense to grab him with your final pick. If he gets six-plus targets in Week 1, he's going to be a popular waiver wire addition.
