When in doubt, always give it to wide receiver A.J. Green. When you pick a six-time Pro Bowler, how can you go wrong? Especially in this training camp. Want to hear something scary? Talk to enough people at Paul Brown Stadium and they’ll tell you his seventh camp is the best one he’s ever had.

“I would agree with that,” said quarterback Andy Dalton after Wednesday’s practice, the last full-scale workout before Saturday’s game.

Fantasy Impact:

The story said Green has put a lot of work into the little details of his game. It should encourage those looking to target Green in fantasy drafts. We rank Green fourth among WRs on our list.

Bengals WR A.J. Green wants a year like Julio Jones had

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Bengals WR A.J. Green said he’d like to see himself playing a role similar to the one WR Julio Jones was able to play in Atlanta.

“Look at the year Julio had,” Green said, via the team’s website. “He was coming off an 1,800-yard season and he had what last year? (1,409). That’s because they put all the weapons around him. He still made the same plays he made when he had the 1,800 yards, but when they double-teamed him they had [Mohamed Sanu] and [Taylor] Gabriel. They’ve got to respect those guys. They went to the Super Bowl and Julio had [1,409] yards. It’s all about what you want. That’s the ultimate goal … to win the championship.”

Related players: John Ross, Josh Malone, Tyler Eifert

Fantasy Impact:

Jones had some help. But the Bengals drafted two receivers this year to help Green — John Ross and Josh Malone — to go with last year’s rookies Tyler Boyd and Cody Core, the story said. Brandon LaFell is also back at wideout while the hope in Cincinnati is that they’ll get more from tight end Tyler Eifert after he missed all of last season.

Bengals place WR A.J. Green on IR

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis ruled All-Pro wide receiver A.J. Green out for Sunday's regular season finale against Baltimore earlier in the week, but on Saturday the team offered no room for speculation when it finally placed Green on injured reserve.

On Friday, Lewis said Green was around the facility, happy, smiling -- and the receiver issued a short statement addressing any rumor that he was unhappy with the club for not allowing him to play as "not true."

"He's a rare person, yes," Lewis said. "He's a very rare, rare person. As I told him, we're going to need to call on his rare abilities as we move forward, for him to bring everybody to his level all the time, being what he is, how he does things."

Fantasy Impact:

The move officially ends Green's season, though he has not played since the second snap of the game against Buffalo on Nov. 20. He was elected to the Pro Bowl despite playing in nine full games. He caught 66 passes for 964 yards and four touchdowns.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 17. Brandon LaFell has been the main beneficiary with Green sidelined.

Jeremy Hill IN, A.J. Green OUT for Bengals

Clint Boling G
Vontaze Burfict OLB
Jeff Driskel QB
Tyler Eifert TE
A.J. Green WR
Tyler Kroft TE
KeiVarae Russell CB

Fantasy Impact:

RB Jeremy Hill is active and set to carry a heavy workload, as usual. A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert are both out though, making things difficult for the Bengals offense as a whole.

Friday, December 23, 2016, 5:51pm

Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 16. Green plans to return so barring a setback, we expect he’ll be out there against the Texans. The Bengals only have pride to play for at this point. It’s a tough matchup and it’s difficult to trust Green after such a long layoff, but he’s one of the best receivers in the league for a reason. Here’s what ESPN’s Bob Holtzman had to say: “He still hasn't had a full practice, but I'm told he did more this week than last week, that he lobbied to play tomorrow night, and that he will play. Tough spot though after more than a month off to return versus one of the NFL's best pass defenses.”

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert ruled out for Week 16

Bengals ruled out Tyler Eifert for Saturday vs Houston.

Tyler Kroft was also ruled out.

Related players: C.J. Uzomah, A.J. Green, Jeremy Hill, Brandon LaFell

Fantasy Impact:

Uzomah should play a ton of snaps, but the Texans have been a tough matchup for opposing tight ends this season (#7 in TE aFPA). Green and Brandon LaFell get a bump in likely red zone usage. Jeremy Hill might see an extra goal line carry as well.

Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (knee) took full practice reps again Friday. LaFell’s startability depends on whether or not A.J. Green plays. Green is listed as doubtful, so LaFell could be used in a pinch.
