A.J. Green already in midseason form in preseason opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green was only targeted twice, but that was all he needed to finish as the team's leading receiver during Thursday's preseason opener against the Chiefs.

Andy Dalton hooked up with Green for a 9-yard gain on the first play from scrimmage. Four plays later, Green hauled in a 53-yard bomb, which set up a field goal on the opening drive. He finished with two catches for 62 yards.

A.J. Green: I've yet to hit my peak


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) Bengals receiver A.J. Green has gained 1,000 receiving yards in each of his first three years and scored 29 touchdowns over that span. But he doesn't feel like he's played his best yet, reports ESPN.

"If you're a great athlete, I feel like you'll think you always left something [on the table]," Green said. "I feel like I still haven't reached my peak yet." 

Green had 98 catches for 1,426 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2013. If he has yet to reach his peak then the rest of the league could be in trouble this year.

Green expects new offensive coordinator Hue Jackson to push him to new heights this season.

"He's never satisfied with where I am," Green said of Jackson. "That's one thing about him. No matter what I do or what I've accomplished these first three years, there's always more I can do. I remember when the [NFL Network's] Top 100 came out and I was the No. 2 receiver, he said, 'OK, let's go be No. 1.'"


A.J. Green staying loyal to Andy Dalton


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Bengals receiver A.J. Green told NFL Network he's hoping quarterback Andy Dalton receives a contract extension. "We came in together and that is the great thing for me and him," Green said. "I know he's my guy. I don't want any other quarterback throwing me the ball. I think he feels the same way about me."

Green said he's built chemistry with Dalton in their three years together.

"He feels confident that whether I'm double covered, triple covered, it don't matter I'm going to come down with the ball," Green said. "And I feel like we've grown over these last three years and I feel like this year is going to be another key year for us."


Ankle tweak sidelines A.J. Green


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/27/2014) Bengals receiver A.J. Green is not participating in Bengals practice Tuesday because of an ankle tweak. "Nothing major," says the official team website. 

A.J. Green bulks up to 214 pounds


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2014) Bengals receiver A.J. Green has added six pounds to 214, mostly in the upper body, reports the team's website. The three-time Pro Bowler said he wants to get more physical so he can better beat coverage at the line of scrimmage.

The 6-4 Green set career highs with 98 catches for 1,426 yards last season and matched his career best with 11 touchdowns.


Bengals pick up option on A.J. Green


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/21/2014) The Bengals have exercised a fifth-year option on receiver A.J. Green, reports ESPN.

Green, who returned to Cincinnati over the weekend for Monday's start of voluntary offseason workouts, was asked earlier Monday about how he would feel if the Bengals ended up offering him a fifth-year option as opposed to working out a longer term contract extension this offseason.

"It's what's in the new CBA. There's nothing I can do about it," he said. "That [affects] everybody."

He added that he has been staying away from the talks involving his representatives and the Bengals.

"I don't pay attention to that stuff. I'm still under contract," Green said. "Like I say, my body of work speaks for itself. Whenever the time's right, it's right. That's one thing I don't get involved with. I just go out there and play the game and whatever happens, happens."

Green ranks second all-time in receiving yards for a player through his first three seasons. He's caught 260 passes for 3,833 yards. Of those, a career-high 1,426 came last year.


Bengals, A.J. Green not talking extension - yet


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/18/2014) The Bengals are expected to exercise the fifth-year option on receiver A.J. Green's contract by May 3, reports Pro Football Talk. But the sides have yet to discuss a long-term contract extension, according to the report.

The Bengals hold the rights to Green through the 2015 season. And in 2016, if a long-term deal hasn't been signed yet, the Bengals can use the franchise tag on Green for that season.

The report says Green can force the issue by trying to boycott offseason workouts or hold out from training camp. But Bengals coach Marvin Lewis is confident Green will be there.


Bengals to exercise 2015 option on A.J. Green


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) Bengals owner Mike Brown said receiver A.J. Green will be on the team at least two more seasons, as the club will exercise its 2015 option for $10.176 million. It's a no-brainer move that prevents Green from hitting free agency until March 2016.

A.J. Green wants extension, but says he's in no rush


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Bengals receiver A.J. Green, who's entering the final year of his rookie deal, said he'd like an extension before the end of next season but added, "I'm in no financial debt, so no rush," reports ESPN.com.

Green set career highs in catches (98) and receiving yards (1,426) this season while hauling in 11 touchdown passes. In three career playoff games, he has 13 catches on 32 targets for 161 scoreless yards. He had a huge drop late in Sunday's playoff loss to the Chargers.

Green told the website he aims to be more of a leader next year.

"I have to be more vocal and demand things," Green said. "It's going to be hard but I feel like I've done enough here to say some things. I still have to be more vocal. Not selfish, but talk to people."


A.J. Green limited against Chargers


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green was limited against the Chargers.

Green was targeted nine times, but only caught three passes. He finished the game with 34 yards. It was an off day for Green. Not only was he limited defensively, but he also dropped a deep pass late in the fourth quarter with the team trailing by 10. The ball may have been slightly underthrown, but hit Green right in the hands. 


A.J. Green ready to go


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Bengals WR A.J. Green is active for Wild Card weekend.

Green came into the week listed as probable due to a knee injury. He was upgraded to full practice Friday.


Unlucky seven on injury list for Bengals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2014) Seven Bengals have been listed as probable for the playoff game Sunday against San Diego, including premier wide receiver A.J. Green (knee).

The other offensive probables are linemen Andre Smith, Andrew Whitworth and Anthony Collins with ankle injuries.

The defensive probables are defensive backs Chris Crocker (knee) and Dre Kirkpatrick (illness) and linebacker Vincent Rey (ankle).


Bengals boast just one first-team All Pro


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2014) Wide receiver A.J. Green is the lone first-team All-Pro for the playoff-qualifying Bengals. Linebacker Vontaze Burfict made it to the second team of The Associated Press selections.

A.J. Green full practice participant on Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/2/2014) Bengals premier wideout A.J. Green (ankle) practiced in full Thursday. When asked if he was 100 percent, he replied, "Is anyone 100 percent right now?" per NFL.com.

Green should be good to go for the Sunday playoff battle against San Diego.


A.J. Green returns to practice on Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/2/2014) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green was back on the practice field Thursday after missing the Wednesday session with a mild ankle ailment. His team is preparing for its playoff opener Sunday against San Diego.

A.J. Green absence Wednesday likely precautionary


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/1/2014) Bengals premier wide receiver A.J. Green was held out of Wednesday practice, likely just to rest. There have been no reports of injuries and he is expected to play in the Sunday first-round playoff game against San Diego.

A.J. Green scores in Week 17


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/29/2013) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green caught four passes (on 11 targets) for 61 yards in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Ravens. He scored his 11th touchdown of the season in the first quarter, on a 53-yard touhdown pass from Andy Dalton. 

Green finishes the season with five touchdowns over his final five games. His 1,416 receiving yards are a new career high, and this was his second season with 11 touchdown receptions. 

Green has played in at least 15 games in each of his three NFL seasons. He has finished with at least 1,057 yards in each.

A.J. Green is a Week 17 must-start


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/27/2013) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green has four touchdowns over his last four games. He has 70 or more receiving yards in four straight and has eclipsed the 100-yard mark in six games this season. 

In Week 10, Green caught eight passes (on 15 targets) for 151 yards and a touchdown against the Ravens, his Week 17 opponent. It was Green's third game of the season with 150 or more receiving yards.

The Ravens haven't allowed a wide receiver to score in the last two weeks, but they gave up four touchdowns to wideouts in the two previous games. And Bengals coach Marvin Lewis has said that he will not rest his starters in a game that could vault the Bengals into the second spot in the playoffs. 

Green is one of the top receivers in Fantasy. He should be started in most formats. 


Vikings offer little resistance for A.J. Green


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) With top cornerback Xavier Rhodes still sidelined by an ankle injury, the Vikings were at the mercy of the Bengals passing game and specifically wide receiver A.J. Green Week 16 in Cincinnati.

Green, who hadn't scored multiple touchdowns in game since Week 1 at Chicago, showed off his athleticism on a couple of scoring plays, making an over-the-shoulder grab on a 29-yard bomb in the first quarter and then hauling in a 2-yarder after juggling it with one hand while a defender pulled him to the ground in the fourth. In all, he caught seven of the 12 passes thrown his way for 97 yards, his most in five games.

And he could have had even better numbers with a little more luck. Twice he got his hands on a long pass from Andy Dalton in the end zone only to have it knocked away at the last second. The Bengals might have thrown the ball even more to him if they weren't up multiple scores for virtually the entire three quarters.

Green will look to keep it going Week 17 against the Ravens, a team he beat for 151 yards and a touchdown back in Week 10.


All signs point to a big game for A.J. Green


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/18/2013) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green hasn't gone for 100 yards in a game since he did in five straight in Weeks 6-10. But apart from that two-catch, 7-yard performance that ended the streak Week 11 against the Browns, he has remained a top contributor, averaging 6.7 catches for 82.7 yards with two touchdowns in his last three games.

If that's the downside for him in an average week, he could be in for monster numbers Week 16 against Minnesota. The Vikings rank 30th against the pass this season, allowing 290.6 yards per game, and have given up the third-most Fantasy points to wide receivers. And though breakout cornerback Xavier Rhodes has helped them keep the opposition's top wide receiver in check at times this year, he appears likely to miss a second straight game with a concussion.

Those 10 catches for 195 yards and a touchdown that the Eagles' DeSean Jackson put up against the Vikings last week could be exactly what's in store for Green.

Not that it changes whether or not you'd start him, of course.


A.J. Green fails to maximize 18 targets


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) Bengals receiver A.J. Green was targeted a game-high 18 times Week 15 at Pittsburgh. He finished with nine catches for 93 yards, somewhat disappointing numbers for such an elite talent.

Green failed to score after finding the end zone in three of his previous four games. This was his fourth straight game under 100 yards after five consecutive 100-yard efforts. His longest reception went 19 yards.

Green has a chance for a huge game Week 16 vs. the Vikings.


Time for A.J. Green to turn tide vs. Ike Taylor


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) Bengals receiver A.J. Green has faced off against Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor four times. While Green has scored three touchdowns, he's caught just 14 passes for 172 yards in those games. Twice Green was held to one grab.

In Week 2 vs. Pittsburgh, Green was targeted 15 times. He managed six catches for 41 yards. Since then, however, Taylor's play has fallen off dramatically. Pro Football Focus rates him the fifth worst cornerback in the league. Quarterbacks own a 118.8 passer rating throwing at Taylor, who's given up an NFL-high 893 passing yards with six touchdowns. Receivers average 15.9 yards per catch against Taylor, tied for 15th highest.

The 33-year-old Taylor dealt with a concussion a few weeks ago but has not missed a game. He's committed six penalties and has zero interceptions.

Green ranks fifth with 78 catches, sixth with 1,175 receiving yards. He's scored in three of his past four games. Look for Green, a weekly top-10 play, to go off against the rapidly fading Taylor.


A.J. Green scores in Week 14 victory


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green caught six passes for 72 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-28 victory over the Colts. Green was targeted eight times. 

It was the second straight game with a touchdown for Green, who also has two consecutive outings with 70 or more receiving yards. He now has has 1,175 receiving yards on the season, with eight touchdowns. 

The Bengals face the Steelers in Week 15. Green caught six passes for 41 yards when the teams played in Week 2.
