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 - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Cleveland
The good news is A.J. Green is back on the field. He was targeted nine times which means more than the five receptions he had against the Chargers for 51 yards. Green was the favorite target of rookie quarterback Joe Burrow and Burrow's performance was just okay. If you took a chance on Green in your draft, even though the numbers weren't great, the potential could be there for him to regain his standing as a top receiver in the league.

Green will face the Browns who are 12th in aFPA to wide receivers. Cleveland was burned by Lamar Jackson's legs more than his arm last week, so we are still looking at an average defense at best. Green hasn't faced the Browns since 2017, but he did have some of his biggest games against them during his career.

The Bengals offense will probably remain conservative for the near future with Burrow, but Green should be a major part of the passing game and his number 1 target. But until we see Burrow break out a little bit, be cautious with expectations for Green. He only rates a low-end WR3 or flex for Week 2. Probably some better options for you for now.
