Arizona Cardinals wide receiver A.J. Green is coming off his worst performance of the 2021 season. With quarterback Kyler Murray sitting out again, Green only managed one catch for four yards in the Week 10 loss to the Carolina Panthers. Green has had flashes of his old self this season, but with the possible return of DeAndre Hopkins and the emergence of Christian Kirk and Rondale Moore, his days of being a reliable fantasy starter are behind him. Green and the Cardinals face the Seattle Seahawks and their 14th ranked pass defense in Week 11. If Murray returns and Hopkins is unable to go, Green could put up WR3 numbers in the high-scoring Cardinals offense. If Hopkins returns however, Green may find himself as the fourth receiving option behind Hopkins, Kirk and tight end Zach Ertz.
The Arizona Cardinals activated wide receiver A.J. Green from the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday. Green will be available to play this weekend against the Carolina Panthers after he was forced to sit out of the Week 9 win over the San Francisco 49ers. And with DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) potentially looking at a second straight absence, Green could have a bigger role alongside Christian Kirk and rookie Rondale Moore this weekend. The 33-year-old has been pretty solid in his first year in Arizona, catching 29 of his 43 targets for 456 yards and three touchdowns with quarterback Kyler Murray spreading the ball around nicely. If Hopkins misses another game, Green will have some nice WR3/flex appeal this weekend.
The Arizona Cardinals placed wide receiver A.J. Green on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday after he tested positive for the virus. It's unknown if Green is vaccinated, but he's now in danger of missing the team's Week 9 divisional showdown with the San Francisco 49ers. Top wideout DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) could also be questionable to play after aggravating his hamstring injury in last Thursday's loss to the Green Bay Packers, so Arizona could be down to Christian Kirk and rookie Rondale Moore as their top two receivers this weekend. Tight end Zach Ertz would also have a much bigger role in the passing game if both Green and Hopkins were out. Green has caught 29 of his 43 targets for 456 yards and three touchdowns in eight games in his first season in Arizona.
Arizona Cardinals wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) and A.J. Green were not seen on the practice field on Wednesday in the portion open to the media. Hopkins played through his hamstring ailment in last Thursday's loss to the Green Bay Packers, but he aggravated the injury and played only 15 snaps. The 29-year-old could be very questionable for a Week 9 tilt with the division-rival San Francisco 49ers. It's possible that Green is just receiving a veteran's day of rest early in the week. If Nuk is unable to play this weekend, it would give Green, Christian Kirk and rookie Rondale Moore extra targets in the passing game. Something else to watch: Quarterback Kyler Murray's (ankle) status after he tweaked his ankle late in the Week 8 loss.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver A.J. Green had three grabs for 66 yards in the win over the Houston Texans on Sunday. The veteran was entering this one coming off a 79-yard, one-touchdown effort against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6. Yet, while this wasn't the worst outing from a statistical standpoint, fantasy managers were hoping to capitalize on the favorable matchup in Week 7. Nonetheless, Kyler Murray has shown love to all of his wideouts this season, so it's logical to believe Green will find the end zone some more throughout the year. He's been healthy, which is even more promising news, and he should continue to be considered for any fantasy lineup ahead of Thursday Night Football against the Green Bay Packers.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver A.J. Green led the team in receiving yards in a Week 6 win over the Cleveland Browns. He caught 5-of-6 targets for 79 yards and a touchdown. The 33-year-old continues to surprise everyone by putting together an impressive bounce-back season. Green owns 17% of the team's target shares and averages 11.7 air yards per target. The Cardinals have a team implied total of 32.5, and Vegas expects Arizona to light up the scoreboard in Week 7. Green is a low-end WR3 and a solid flex play on Sunday in a plus matchup against the Texans.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver A.J. Green finished with a team-high five catches for 79 yards during the win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. More impressively, the former Bengal picked up another score, his third of the year. Kyler Murray had four touchdown throws in Week 6 and connected with five different options at least three times. Murray will likely continue spreading the ball around moving forward, so Green should continue to benefit. Fantasy managers, mainly those in 12 or 14-team leagues, should consider him as a flex option, at the very minimum, ahead of the Week 7 showdown against the Houston Texans.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver A.J. Green finished with only one catch for 13 yards during the win over San Francisco. The 33-year-old had been riding a wave of efficiency throughout his first four games in the desert, racking up at least six targets in each game during that span, which was much more than most would have projected. He also had two touchdowns heading into Week 5, so fantasy managers were undoubtedly disappointed with the outcome on Sunday. Nonetheless, it was inevitable that this would happen at some point. However, Green likely has a few more quality performances up his sleeve. He should continue to be viewed at least as a flex option in deeper formats until the type of production we saw against the 49ers becomes the norm moving forward.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver A.J. Green continues to exceed his fantasy value. After it was believed that Green's best days were behind him, his production during his first year in the desert suggests otherwise. The 33-year-old currently leads the Cards in receiving yards, and he has also been targeted by Kyler Murray six times in each game this season. He's also found the end zone twice and should remain classified as a legit threat to do some damage on the fantasy end in Week 5 against the 49ers, mainly with Murray continuing to get all of his wideouts involved from week to week. While his appeal is more attractive in deeper formats, he should stay on the radar for lineups in every fantasy league imaginable based on his statistical output so far during the 2021 campaign.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver A.J. Green led his team in receiving during the win over the Rams on Sunday, finishing with five catches for 67 yards and a touchdown. After it was believed that the veteran's best days were behind him, he now has 13 catches for 223 yards over the last three weeks, as well as two touchdowns during that same span. While nobody would blame managers for keeping him Green of their starting lineups based on his history, he also could be considered a realistic fantasy option in all formats. As a result, fantasy managers should consider Green a borderline flex option in all leagues until he starts showing signs of regression.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver A.J. Green led all wideouts during the Week 3 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The longtime Bengal had a terrific showing, finishing by catching five of his six targets for 112 yards. Although the veteran is relegated on the depth chart behind DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, and even Rondale Moore, Kyler Murray's ability to get the ball downfield should enable everyone to remain involved on a week-to-week basis. Nonetheless, while Green's best days are undoubtedly behind him, it's apparent he still has plenty of impactful performances left in the tank. As a result, he should remain on the fantasy radar as a legit flex option with upside in deeper formats moving ahead.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver A.J. Green is no longer in the prime of his career and isn't the top dog at receiver on his new team. However, he has seen six targets in each of his first two games with Arizona. In Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings, Green had three catches for 44 yards and one touchdown. In Week 3, he will face a Jacksonville Jaguars defense that gave up 216 yards to Broncos wide receivers last week. Green should be considered a borderline flex option in deeper leagues because of his decent target share. QuarterbackKyler Murray seems to trust Green, but the lack of receptions does not make him an appealing option in tougher matchups.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver A.J. Green scored the first touchdown of his career as a non-Cincinnati Bengal during the win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. The 33-year-old caught three passes from Kyler Murray, with one of them being a nine-yard grab for a score in the third quarter. While it's apparent that Green's best days are behind him, his 12 targets over the last two weeks would suggest that there is room for him on fantasy rosters in deeper formats. Murray is playing at an MVP level during the 2021 campaign, and because he has been so generous with spreading the ball around, it appears Green has more fantasy value than some realize moving ahead.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver A.J. Green was quiet in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans. Green had two receptions on six targets for 25 yards. Green saw a fair amount of targets, as he was the only other receiver with more targets thanDeAndre Hopkins. However, Green was not able to take advantage of the volume of targets he saw in Week 1. It is unclear if Green will see that same type of volume going forward. In Week 2, the Cardinals will host the Vikings, a team that just gave up 191 yards to receiversTee Higgins, Ja'Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd. It remains to be seen how the targets will be spread out. Green will look to bounce back in Week 2.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver A.J. Green draws a favorable matchup for Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans. Green, initially the WR2 on the depth chart, has fallen to the No. 3 spot behind rookie Rondale Moore.It seems like a toss-up as to who will end up becoming the No. 2 behind DeAndre Hopkins, but we'll have a better idea as the season unfolds. Head coach Kingsbury and Hopkins praised Green during training camp, going as far as saying that he looks like his old self when he was in his prime. If Green comes anywhere close to the way he looked in his prime, he could end up being Murray's second-favorite target. Although running backChase Edmonds will see a good amount of targets in Week 1 as well, Green needs to make the most of his targets to reclaim the WR2 position. Until he proves his health and sees a big enough workload, he'll be hard to trust in starting lineups.
Arizona Cardinals veteran wide receiver A.J. Green will miss some practice time due to an undisclosed "minor issue," according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury. Kingsbury said injury news would be kept private until Week 1, because he does not have to report on ailments during training camp. He expects Green back "sooner than later," but it appears that Green will miss the rest of the week. Rookie Rondale Moore and Andy Isabella will likely see more opportunities with the first team while Green is out. When Green returns, he will see a lot of time as the WR2 alongsideDeAndre Hopkinsand Christian Kirk. If Green remains healthy during the regular season, he could have big games here and there in this explosive offense, but don't expect him to carry your fantasy squad.
Arizona Cardinals veteran free agent wide receiver addition A.J. Green is reportedly enjoying a resurgence early in training camp. Per Peter Schrager of NFL Network and Fox Sports, Green "looks incredible out there at Cardinals practice." This news is especially surprising considering that Green looked completely washed up with the Bengals in 2020. Green's pathetic 5.0 yards per target mark ranked 107th among all wideouts last season. It's possible that Green was mailing it in last season, however, as he made it known that he wanted out of Cincinnati. Green figures to be competing with Rondale Moore and Christian Kirk for secondary targets in the offense, so building early chemistry with Kyler Murray is key. If Green continues generating positive buzz later into camp he could make for an intriguing late-round dart throw, but there are higher upside options worth drafting over him right now.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray expects new wide receiver A.J. Green to have a big year in 2021. "I expect A.J. to have a big year," Murray said. "I know a lot of people are sleeping on him. I know a lot of things have been said about him maybe not being able to do it anymore. I'm glad he's on the team." Injuries slowed him in 2018, he missed all of 2019 and he had just 47 catches for 523 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games last year. Many are wondering whether the 33-year-old has much left in him, but Murray isn't doubting Green. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury has also been impressed with Green this offseason. Despite Green's impressive resume, fantasy managers shouldn't be expecting him to suddenly return to being an every-week starter across from All-Pro DeAndre Hopkins.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver A.J. Green left the Bengals this offseason, signing a one-year, $8 million contract with the Cardinals. In the high-powered Cardinals offense, a prime A.J. Green could have had a huge season, but he's coming off a year where he turned 104 targets into just 47 catches for 523 yards, with the worst yards per reception mark of his NFL career, as well as his lowest catch rate. With DeAndre Hopkins and Christian Kirk already in Arizona, Green is looking at being the team's No. 3 receiver. Factoring in Green's injury history, there's a low fantasy floor here, with a ceiling that isn't as high as the name "A.J. Green" suggests.
The Arizona Cardinals are working on a deal to sign former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green, according to a source. The deal has been in the works since Tuesday night and is expected to come in around one year for $8 million. Green has dropped off significantly in the last few seasons due to various injuries, but he was one of the most prolific players in franchise history for the Bengals over his 11 seasons with the team. Entering his age-33 season, Brown finished 2020 ranked second in franchise history in receiving yards (9,430), second in touchdowns (65) and second in total receptions (649). He holds the team record for most consecutive 100-yard receiving games (five). Since 2016, though, he has missed 29 games due to injuries, including all of 2019. He had single-season lows of 47 catches for 523 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games in 2020. With Larry Fitzgerald potentially retiring, Brown could replace the future Hall of Famer alongside DeAndre Hopkins and Christian Kirk in three-receiver sets in Arizona.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green failed to catch any of his six targets during the loss to Baltimore on Sunday. The oft-injured wideout has dealt with numerous ailments over the last few years and will be coming off his worst season as a professional. The 32-year-old, who was retained during the offseason utilizing the franchise tag for approximately $18 million, may have played his final game in Cincinnati. Although his output wasn't the best in 2020, he may have a few more productive seasons ahead, especially if he ends up on a different team and can remain healthy, making him an adequate late-round stash in fantasy drafts for the 2021 campaign.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green finished with six catches for 62 yards and a score during the loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 14. The veteran was targeted seven times on the day, three more than he had over the previous two weeks, and his trip to the end zone was his second of the season. With Brandon Allen declaring that Green needed to be more involved offensively, he may continue to get some added attention moving ahead. Fantasy managers in all formats, including DFS, should keep him in mind.
Cincinnati Bengals running back A.J. Green has struggled as of late, being held without a catch in his previous two outings. However, with quarterback Brandon Allen suggesting that the veteran needed to be more involved on the offensive end moving ahead, his stock may be higher now than it has been in recent memory. Couple that with the fact that Tee Higgins (hamstring) may not be in uniform, Green could be a sneaky option in both DFS and season-long formats in Week 14 against the Cowboys.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green is a very risky play this week. After a couple of solid games in October, Green has regressed. The WR has seen 17 targets in the past three games but has only managed four receptions for 41 yards total in those three games. In two of the past three games, the veteran has no yards receiving at all. With a backup QB now starting along with the fact that Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins have risen above him on the depth chart, Green is better left on the bench this week.
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green was able to haul in his first touchdown of the year last week versus Washington, but his production against the Giants on Sunday was the drastic opposite. Green figured to see his numbers take a downturn in wake of the injury to Joe Burrow (knee), which has paved the way for Brandon Allen to take over at QB, but the seven-time Pro Bowler went without a catch on three targets versus New York in Week 12. Green's performances in 2020 have fluctuated wildly even when Burrow was available, with his DFS price having cratered ahead of Sunday's contest. At this stage, Green is no longer a season-long commodity even in the deepest of season-long formats due to the lack of consistency under center.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
