Green doubtful for Week 11 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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) has been cleared to participate in individual drills during minicamp. He injured a toe on his right foot twice last season and had surgery to repair torn ligaments in early December. His 7 missed games in 2018 bring him to 13 over the past 3 years and 16 over the past 5. But Green ranked 16th among WRs in PPR points per game last season after finishing 13th and 4th the previous 2 years. There's injury risk here, but Green boasts plenty of upside at his late-3rd-round ADP.

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.
