2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Dec-13-2015 by Shawn Childs


Week 14 DFS Update (12/13): Green is now the 8th-highest scoring WR after two straight solid games (6/61/2 and 5/128/1). Even with bump in success, he only has 14 targets over the last two games. Over his last five weeks, Green has no game with more than six catches. On the year he has two games with over 100 yards receiving and another with more than 200 yards, plus seven TDs. He only has four games with double-digit targets. In Week 8 Green had a season high in catches (11) against the Steelers for 118 yards and a TD. Pittsburgh allows the 3rd-most Fantasy points to WRs, with four of their last seven opponents scoring over 50 Fantasy points. As good as this matchup looks, the Steelers have only allowed 14 passing TDs on the year (eight in two of their last four games - none in the other two games). Great play if this game gets wide open and the Bengals need to chase on the scoreboard.

Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): Green has six catches or less in six of his last seven games, leading to much shorter production than expected. He has only two games with over 100 yards receiving and four games with double-digit targets. His opportunity (9.1 targets per game) remains well below the top WRs in the game in 2015 even though he has similar talent. Green scored a pair of TDs in Week 12, pushing his season total to six. In Week 9 he had five catches for 53 yards on six targets vs. the Browns. Cleveland was crushed by WRs in two of their last four games (17/299/2 and 18/355/3). Possible follow through game, but the Bengals may win this game on the ground.

Green was a real frustrating ride in 2014. He crushed it in Week 1 when he caught six of his nine targets for 131 yards and a TD. A turf toe injury led to him playing just a few snaps in Week 2. He appeared to be healthy in Week 3 when he amassed 102 yards on six catches. Then, despite a solid 5-81-1 line in Week 4, A.J. aggravated his toe injury and missed the next three games. He returned largely as a decoy in Weeks 9 and 10, catching six passes for a total of 67 yards. Green then turned back into the player we know he can be for the next four games (33 catches for 529 yards and three TDs on 47 targets). That stretch included two 100-yard games and one 200-yard performance. A biceps injury knocked him out of Week 16 after four targets and no catches, and he suffered a concussion in Week 17. Green still finished with his fourth straight 1,000-yard season in 13 games. Green has 35 TDs in 60 career starts. His resume makes it pretty clear that A.J. is an elite No. 1 WR who can catch 100-plus passes in any year for 1,500 yards and double-digit touchdowns.

1.12 Team Ritchie - I was hoping to get two W's with my back to back picks and like my son tells me, AJ Green is a sure thing. When you load on on the wideouts ealy, the risk is at B and I think I have a few in my pocket for late rounds (Comments Added Thu Aug 13 8:16:11 a.m
