The Bengals reported to Paul Brown Stadium Thursday and as five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green began his sixth training camp without offseason workout partner Calvin Johnson in the league, he says he’s one of a group of about five vying to replace Johnson as the NFL’s best wide receiver.

“I’m in there,” said Green, who also counts Julio Jones, Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr., and DeAndre Hopkins in that mix.

Green says he’s not surprised Johnson retired after just nine seasons in the league at age 30. After all, he told Green a couple of offseasons ago that he only had about two or three years left in him.

And there are other concerns. Green and wife Miranda are expecting their first child Sept. 30, a son named Easton Ace Green.

Fantasy Impact:

Green, who turns 28 Sunday, said he’d like to play anywhere between 11-15 seasons if he’s still performing at a top level, the story said.

Scouting Report

2016 Fantasy Outlook
136 catches. 1,834 yards. 10 touchdowns. Those were Brown's numbers one season after everyone thought he had peaked in 2014 with a line of 129-1,698-13. His two-year reception total of 265 is the most in NFL history. His 3,532 yards in the past two years are the second-most in a similar span in league history. At 28, you'd expect Brown to slow down, but he played four full games and parts of two others without Ben Roethlisberger last season. Had he played a full season with Roethlisberger, several of the league's single-season receiving records would have fallen. Brown is productive and durable - when he's not being hit in the head by Vontaze Burfict. He's the top wide receiver in all formats and the top player in many drafts.
