For the first time in his career, AJ Green registered a catchless game.
Green entered Sunday’s game between the Bengals and Falcons with a right toe injury and was not able to play through it. He tried to block on a running play but aggravated the injury and pointed to the sidelines to indicate he needed to come out.
Shortly thereafter, the Bengals announced Green would be out for the rest of the game, which is a huge blow to them and fantasy teams. Green’s injury was later reported to be turf toe, which is an injury that often sticks with a player for multiple weeks.
Without Green, the fantasy receivers who will see more action are Mohamed Sanu, Jeremy Hill, Brandon Tate and Dane Sanzenbacher. The Bengals like to dump off to Gio Bernard and utilize their tight ends, so we’re not expecting huge numbers for their receivers not named AJ Green.
