The hate on AJ Green has gone too far

Recommended Posts

In 8 games last year with terrible coaching, his starting QB out for some of it... he averaged 85 yrds a game and scored 6 TD's

Just before he got his contract extension he gets hurt. Even if it takes till week 4, he is going to ball out in the new system.

I read all the time, he is a DND for me, I wouldn't  take him in the 10th round.

I got him in the 6th, and super excited

Yeah, if he misses 2-3 games and stays healthy the rest of the year, he's becoming kind of stealish at his falling ADP... but staying healthy the rest of the year is a big if.

for sure, fingers crossed. He is a beast through, and didn't slow down at all last year... in that crappy system.

Passed on Green early 6th, only to have him fall to me early 8th. Had to draft him at that point. Probably out til at least week 2, and not startable until week 4 or 5.?.  If he can regain form, great. At worst he won't be any different than the crappy 8th round WRs I could've drafted.

Hope it works out for you.

I, personally, would rather have Lockett or Mike Williams in that range

Lockett has never been available in rd 6, not one time in any mock. Williams occasionally is there. AJ Green much more likely, which is the point. My league has an IR spot so I'll give him a look, but I'd rather go QB with Baker over him anyway.

It was late 6th.. those guys were gone. I went 3 RB's in the 1st 4 rounds, so I had to swing for the fences. If he can stay healthy he will regain #1 status, he is totally motivated... millions on the line.

It could work.....just super dicey imho.

Best of luck.

Only problem I have with A Green is his lack of ability to stay on the field. 

On the little board many our tryimg to use his value as trade bait. 

When he’s the field he’s darn good, but I don’t see how anyond can take him and trust he will stay healthy.

Injured and old. It’s not a good combo. That said, at some point of course you roll the dice

it was a minor surgery and he is about the same age as Julio Jones and Antonio Brown... are they too old as well ?

This is my concern with Green  as well.

Missed just 1 game in first 3 years including 2 top5 seasons of 1300+/11

Since then has played 16 games just 2 of 5 season; missing 3 games in 2014, 6 in 2016, 7 in 2018, then likely 2-4 at least for 2019.

Could pay off big if he lives up to billing when he does play,  but  he'd likely be off board before I'd consider taking him.

Diffently agree he’s worth a flyer.

I traded for jimmy grahm and john brown for him. Both were just reserve depth anyway so I can sit on green till he rebounds. Plus I got both jimmy and brown really late.

In this scenario, the 6th round, he's a great roster addition.  From what I've read on here, people were saying don't touch him before the 4th.  I didn't see many DND posts with his name being mentioned.  Passing on him in the 6th would be foolish.  I'll still go with what I've been saying from the start;  If you can draft him after the 4th, do so.  Not sooner though.  And, when he returns, you can likely trade him for serious value as people always remember guys like Green for their heyday.  I expect him to have some value the week prior to returning.

Is there any word as to when Green might get back? I haven't seen anything giving any kind of an estimate or whatever.

it was said on sirius "fantasy radio channel" (or whatever it is called) that AJ Green was out of his boot and walking and/or jogging on a treadmill TODAY....

I would expect him to be back in Week 4.  There's an outside shot at Week 3, but I probably wouldn't trust him until Week 4.

Very true, Axe.   

I took A.J in the 6th round in a 12-teamer and feeling really good about it.
