Summary

17 snaps of a Week 13 game in 2018 are the only thing standing between Green and 24 consecutive missed games. Prior to missing all of 2019, Green had missed multiple games in 2018 before returning, subsequently getting hurt again, and then being shut down. Green's talent is deserving of a high-end contract, but the team doesn't want to give it to him until he can prove that he'll be able to play for the majority of the deal. As a bridge solution, Cincinnati placed the franchise tag on Green this season. They hope he can return to his former self and provide Joe Burrow with not only a high-end talent but also a veteran presence the team lacked last season. (July 30)

Bengals | A.J. Green focused on health (Mon Aug 10, 10:42 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green has dedicated much of his offseason training to injury avoidance, including working with a former acquaintance, Reza Hesam, who co-founded Adapt Physical Therapy, which focuses on injury prevention in addition to working on performance.

Our View: Green is playing on the one-year franchise tag for the Bengals. He wants to stay with the team and wants to continue with them for another four years. In order to do that, Green needs to stay healthy and play at a high level. That's his usual level so long as he's at or near full strength.

Bengals | A.J. Green impressing (Mon Aug 10, 11:41 AM) - Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green impressed teammates with his athleticism last week. 'We're just running routes and haven't gone full speed against the defense,' said tight end C.J. Uzomah, who had to laugh at sophomore tight end Drew Sample's reaction when they ran routes. 'Drew only saw him last year for, what, that first practice? He said, 'I forgot how explosive he is.' I told him, 'You haven't seen the half of it yet.''

Our View: We're keeping our fingers crossed that Green can look like his old self. Green is playing on the one-year franchise tag but wants to stay with the Bengals with one more contract. Playing like he used to would be a boost for the offense, and Green should become a favorite target of rookie QB Joe Burrow.

Bengals | A.J. Green working to avoid injuries (Sat Aug 8, 11:06 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green said his training regiment is designed to help him avoid the injuries he has dealt with the last couple of seasons. 'We did more stuff in testing those ankles, strengthen those ankles, strengthen these toes, learning how to land better,' Green said. 'Just little things like that I didn't do in previous years.'

Our View: Green has missed some or all of the season due to leg/foot injuries three of the last four years, but he has still been an elite fantasy option when he is on the field. His ADP isn't that different than it was at this time last year, when we already knew that he was injured and going to miss some regular season time.
