Draft note
by John Paulsen
When we last saw Green, he was on pace for 82 catches for 1234 yards and 10.7 touchdowns through nine games in 2018 before going on injured reserve with a toe injury. He then missed the entire 2019 season with a mysterious ankle injury. He’s now 31 years old (soon to be 32), reportedly wants out of Cincinnati and has been unable to come to terms on a new contract with the Bengals. He’s likely to play 2020 under the franchise tag ($17.9 million) and doesn’t have much leverage if he tries to hold out. We’re assuming that he plays in Cincy, so he’ll be dealing with a new, rookie quarterback and playing for a new coach. There’s a lot of risk associated with Green, but his sixth-round ADP is as late as he’s been going off the board in years.

CIN WR A.J. Green - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Even as A.J. Green has entered his 30s, he has continued to put up impressive numbers when he is on the field. He has eclipsed the 1,000 receiving yard mark six out of eight seasons with the exceptions being the two seasons where he suffered injuries. Even last year when he only played nine games, he averaged 15.1 yards per catch and was on pace for another 1,000-yard season. He remains the Bengals No. 1 target and the connection with QB Andy Dalton continues to work for the Cincy offense.

Fantasy Downside
Health is the biggest factor for Green. He missed 7 games in 2018 and 6 games in 2016. And his 2019 training camp started off with an ankle injury. It’s hard to predict what Green will do as his numbers haven’t been as good as they were earlier in his career. Is he finally on the downside of his career as the No. 1 receiver with the emergence of Tyler Boyd?

2019 Bottom Line
Green’s ADP of 33 is about right with risks involved but the potential to be even higher than a WR2 which is what he is considered entering the season. If he stays healthy, we expect him to eclipse the 1,000-yard mark again and score around the 8 touchdown mark. Green might not be a top 10 fantasy receiver but he is close. UPDATE: Green is out 6 to 8 weeks with ligament damage in his ankle. This brings down his stock slightly, depending on if he misses any regular season games.
