A.J. Green Fantasy Football News 2019

The Bengals have officially named Zac Taylor their HC. The marriage has been set for about a month, but the announcement had to wait until the Rams' season was over. Taylor spent the past 2 years working under Sean McVay, but it's unclear exactly how big a hand he had in the scheme or game-planning. Taylor has just 5 games of experience as an NFL OC, all with Miami back in 2015. The Fins averaged 17 points in those 5 contests. Taylor was the University of Cincinnati's OC in 2016, "leading" the Bearcats to a 106th-place finish in total offense.

The Bengals have fired HC Marvin Lewis. He's been the boss in Cincinnati for 16 seasons, compiling a 131-122-3 record. Lewis' squad made the playoffs 7 times but never got a postseason victory. Cincinnati went 19-28-1 over the past 3 seasons. We're already hearing Hue Jackson mentioned as a potential replacement for Lewis. Poor Bengals fans.

Bengals WR A.J. Green is set to undergo season-ending surgery to repair torn ligaments in his toe, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Green is expected to be sidelined for 3-4 months, so he should be back by springtime. He'll end up missing 7 games this season, bringing him to 13 total over the past 3 seasons. Durability is a concern moving forward for the 30-year-old. Tyler Boyd and John Ross will close out the 2018 campaign as Cincinnati's top 2 WRs.

Bengals WR A.J. Green suffered a non-contact right foot injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Broncos. He had to be carted to the locker room, so don't expect him to return. This is likely an aggravation of the injury that cost him the past 3 games.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play against the Broncos on Sunday after missing the past 3 games. The injury and QB Jeff Driskel add risk to Green’s Week 13 outlook. But he’s worth using in most fantasy lineups as a WR2 with upside.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) was on the field for Wednesday's walkthrough and told reporters that he'll return for this weekend's game against the Broncos. Green was sitting 7th among WRs in PPR points before going down in Week 8. QB Jeff Driskel adds some unknown, but Green will be worth getting into Week 13 fantasy lineups as at least a WR2 with upside.

As expected, Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is out for Sunday's game against the Ravens. He was working off to the side of Friday's practice, so a Week 12 return looks possible. Tyler Boyd and John Ross will again serve as Cincinnati's top 2 WRs vs. a stingy Baltimore defense. Consider Boyd a low-end WR2 and Ross just a fantasy flier.

Update: The Bengals listed Green as doubtful. He won't play, but it's another sign that he could return next week.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) remained sidelined on Thursday. The team has yet to rule him out, but he's a long shot to play against the Ravens this weekend. That'll again leave Tyler Boyd and John Ross as Cincinnati's top 2 WRs.

Bengals HC Marvin Lewis said Wednesday that he's "hopeful" WR A.J. Green returns for this weekend's game against the Ravens. It's a surprise after previous reports had Week 12 as Green's earliest possible return. We still wouldn't count on having Green this week, but it at least sounds like he's making good progress.

Bengals WR A.J. Green will avoid surgery on his injured toe, according to multiple reports. He's expected to miss at least 2 games, however, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. WR Tyler Boyd has already drawn 22.3% of Cincinnati targets on the season and will be an even stronger weekly volume bet for as long as Green's out -- especially this week against the favored Saints and their weak secondary. Green's absence also adds target upside to the Cincinnati backfield and TE C.J. Uzomah. WR John Ross returned to practice Monday after missing Week 8 with a groin injury. We'll see if he's ready to play against New Orleans. Alex Erickson and Cody Core sit next on the WR depth chart. Cincinnati also promoted rookie WR Auden Tate from the practice squad Monday.

Bengals WR A.J. Green is expected to miss “some games" with his toe injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Green's appointment with foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson is this coming week, so we'll hopefully get a more concrete diagnosis then. Green is "trying to avoid surgery," Schefter adds. Stay tuned for updates.

Bengals WR A.J. Green is scheduled to visit foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson about his toe injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "Clarity is coming soon, with everything — day-to-day, week-to-week, surgery — on the table for Green," Rapoport adds. We'll update Green's status as soon as we learn more.

Bengals insider Paul Dehner spotted WR A.J. Green with a walking boot on his right foot on Tuesday. Green reportedly injured the foot on the last play of last weekend's win over the Bucs. Walking boots are often used as a precautionary measure, but Green's status will certainly be worth tracking closely when the Bengals return from their Week 9 bye.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (pelvis) is not listed on the final Week 4 injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday after being limited Wednesday. Green is safe to get into fantasy lineups in what should be a shootout in Atlanta.
