A.J. Green Injury Update Points to Potential Return in Coming Weeks
By Max Staley
If you drafted A.J. Green this summer, you've likely been pretty frustrated with his murky injury status. While it initially seemed like Green's foot ailment would only cost him a few games, he's now missed seven straight starts to open the year.
However, there is finally some hope on the horizon. Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor stated that Green is progressing well, and even hinted that he could be returning following the team's Week 9 bye.
While this is undoubtedly encouraging, a Week 10 return certainly wasn't what most owners were hoping for, as Green had an average draft position (ADP) of WR24 this summer.
Still, once Green is back to full health, it's fair to expect him to produce at a high level. Green played eight healthy games in 2018 (he missed most of Week 13 with an injury) and the star wideout was on a 16-game pace for 1,374 receiving yards and 12 TDs during that stretch.
While he may not reach that level of production this season, Green is certainly worth stashing, as he could really help your fantasy team down the stretch.
Once Green is back to full health, he's best viewed as a solid WR2 with low-end WR1 upside on a week-to-week basis.
