2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jul-08-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

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

Apr-24-15 Bengals WR Marvin Jones back to full strength at offseason workouts

According to Marvin Jones, he has no more limitations due to his ankle surgery. A foot and ankle injuries cost him his entire 2014 season after a breakout 2013 campaign. In 2013, he caught 51 passes for 712 yards and 10 TDs. He will look to improve off that and put last season behind him.

Fantasy Analysis:

Jones can be a nice sleeper pick in 2015. A.J. Green will draw so much attention opposite him that it should allow him to run free. Any receiver that can catch double-digit touchdowns has fantasy value. He is definitely worth a late round flier. If he stays healthy I expect him to produce and outperform his 2013 numbers.
