Shark Bites

Bengals HC Zac Taylor said Monday that there's still no timetable for WR A.J. Green's return from his ankle injury. Taylor added that Green won't practice this week. That'd seemingly make Week 6 the best-case scenario for Green's 2019 debut. If you've stashed him on your bench for this long, though, you should continue to stash him.

The Cardinals signed WR A.J. Green. No word yet on the terms, but it's likely a cheap, 1-year deal. After playing in just 9 games across 2018 and 2019, Green played all 16 last season -- but set career lows with an ugly 45.2% catch rate and 11.1 yards per catch. He ranked 79th in yards per route run and 66th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade among 84 WRs with 50+ targets. Green turns 33 in July and might just be out of gas. He figures to be no better than 3rd in line for targets in Arizona behind WRs DeAndre Hopkins and Christian Kirk. We'll see if WR Andy Isabella is ready to take on a bigger role in 2021.

Update: It's a 1-year deal worth "up to" $8.5 million with $6 million guaranteed, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) isn’t listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He put in a full practice on Friday, so he should be available for his usual role. That doesn’t make Green a recommended fantasy play, though. He hasn’t topped 51 yards all season.

Bengals WR A.J. Green suffered a hamstring injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Ravens. He was deemed doubtful to return, so don't expect to see him back out there. Green had already been getting out-played by rookie WR Tee Higgins over the past couple of weeks.

Bengals HC Zac Taylor suggested that WR A.J. Green's snaps could be limited in Sunday's opener against the Chargers. "Fifty-five is a lot of snaps. You always monitor that," Taylor said. "We're fortunate because we're deep at receiver and we feel like there are a lot of guys that can step in there and be a primary receiver." Green missed about a week of camp this summer with a hamstring injury after an ankle injury cost him the entire 2019 campaign. We'll see exactly how big a role he's ready for on Sunday, but we'd try to not use him in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Bengals WR A.J. Green is expected to return to practice on Wednesday after missing the last week with a hamstring injury. "We’re early in training camp and we have some other guys at that position we need to look at," HC Zac Taylor said. "I think it was smart of us to hold him out for a couple of days." We'll see if Green can stay on the field between now and Week 1. His ADP is sitting in the late 6th round of best-ball drafts over the last week.
