There is no 2015 profile for this player yet. Here is his 2014 profile:

2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

A.J. Green is a superstar, plain and simple. He can do it all: great hands, route-running and athleticism. Green can go across the middle, beat defenses deep, take a screen to the house or pull down a TD in a crowd. After his breakout rookie year, Green has followed up with back-to-back monster seasons averaging 97.5 receptions, 11 TDs and just under 1,400 yards. He is a Top 5 fantasy receiver and may very well be the second-best receiver in the NFL after Calvin Johnson. In 2013, Marvin Jones emerged as a second option at wideout. This had very little effect on Green's fantasy numbers and will most likely help in the long run as defenses are forced to monitor Jones and the Bengals' talented backfield. It is always good for a star receiver to have a player opposite him to take some pressure off. Green will be drafted and started in all formats and likely in the first round because of his 7.03 ADP. Expect over 90 catches and double-digit touchdowns in 2014.

Editor's note: With top RBs becoming more scarce and top WRs becoming more prevalent, receivers like Green are climbing into the first round because of their unquestioned certainty to produce huge stats. Last year was an especially difficult year for backs and this in turn has made receivers a popular safety net in the early rounds. Green is about as safe as they come in this game.

Latest Update

Jun-02-15 Bengals WR Marvin Jones participating in 11-on-11 drills

After tweaking his hamstring earlier this offseason, Marvin Jones is finally participating in 11-on-11 drills. I say "finally" because he also missed all of last season with foot and ankle injuries. He reportedly looked pretty good. It's more notable that the foot and ankle look good more so than the hamstring. He is projected to start outside opposite star wide receiver A.J. Green.

Fantasy Analysis:

Jones was projected to have a big 2014 season to follow up his breakout campaign in 2013. His absence clearly hurt Andy Dalton, especially with Green dealing with injury woes of his own. Losing a double-digit touchdown guy hampered the Bengals' offense. Jones should be considered a sleeper this season. He's high-risk and high-reward thanks to injury concerns. Nonetheless, he has a ton of value as the 69th WR off the board based on his ADP.
