The A.J. Green Show

The only Bengals Wide Receiver Fantasy Owners should even consider drafting until the very end of their Draft is A.J. Green.  This season A.J. Green has very little help and mostly limited players to compete with for catches.  Pair that with a healthy Andy Dalton returning off of a great year and you have a potentially incredible stat season for Green.

No matter what kind of league you are in and what you value on your team, drafting A.J. Green has no downside in 2016.

Even last year with Marvin Jones, Mohamed Sanu, and

Tyler Eifert

to compete with, A.J. Green was still a solid WR1 for any Fantasy Team.  This year, even with double teams galore, the only true weapon the Bengals have on the outside is Green.

Round 1 is the only round Fantasy Football owners will be able to draft A.J. Green.  There is always the slight possibility that someone outsmarts themselves and drafts someone like Deandre Hopkins or John Brown in the 1st round.  If this happens, Fantasy Football owners should do their happy dance and draft Green as soon as possible.  No matter what kind of league you are in and what you value on your team, drafting Green has no downside in 2016.
