Screw it, I'm doing a 180, I am now fully on board with the idea that he is 100% and just doesn't want to play there anymore. I guess I wasn't being pessimistic enough.

Agreed, another owner just dropped Sanu to cover a bye week 

 

hello Mr Sanu

I want to believe that Green wouldn't spite the team by refusing to play until he has a long term contract. It won't help him get a long term contract, and it doesn't make sense for another team elsewhere to shell out one for a WR who sat a whole season due to "injury". But I also don't blame him at all if that is the case.

Hell, maybe I'll keep him on my roster in solidarity. But while I'm not going full-blown conspiracy nut, I think his motivation to get back is much, much lower until he knows where he stands.

 I outright dropped him in a .25 PPR league yesterday.  In a corresponding move I picked up Devante Parker.

 I have an "IR spot" (Yahoo), but him constantly being "questionable/doubtful" then "OUT" has been a headache. (Anything other than OUT triggers owners to have to make roster moves)

Regardless, its a headache many can't deal with during bye week scenarios.  He may well come back in a few weeks, but it's just not something most of us can wait on anymore. Plus there is always the risk of him being shut down again if he gets so much as a hangnail.

 

 I would imagine in dynasty or keeper leagues he is a must hold, but I don't see many re-draft scenarios where you can hang onto him.

Been thinking about doing the same because it’s been a pain having to keep doing that

Not sure whether to drop or hold in a keeper league with playoff position secured. Would probably drop in redraft. 

At this point, there isn't anyone on the wire I am more interested in, so I'm holding until I can snag someone for the playoffs. I grabbed Green as a lottey ticket, and built my team around not needing him, so if he doesn't come back not much would change besides missing out on WW lotto tickets while holding.

Hilariously, the only target I might choose over keeping him is AJ Brown, who I think could be startable despite a tough schedule coming up.

It's not an issue if you put in your waiver claims before Tuesday. As long as your claims happen when a player is listed as OUT, your claims will process and that player will remain in the IR spot.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Bengals will "reassess" A.J. Green (ankle) this week.

Green had been hoping to return in Week 10 but was ruled out after seeing renewed swelling in his surgically-repaired ankle. Despite the setback, Green was spotted rehabbing at Paul Brown Stadium Sunday morning. Despite an 0-8 record and seemingly nothing to play for, the Bengals have not considered a "shutdown" for their injury-prone veteran, who is still aiming to return at some point this year. In the meantime, Tyler Boyd, Auden Tate and Alex Erickson will continue to operate as Cincy's top receiving trio.

Due to byes, flipping a coin between AJ Green or Christian Kirk (vs TB). Currently leaning Kirk but a long time to ponder it.

I like Kirk this week.   

 

Glad AJ was declared out early so I could slot in Kirk. That worked out OK.

So what's the deal here?  Have held him this long, so what's another week, right?  But am confused by the day-to-day status.  That sounds like the team is trying to put pressure on him, but what leverage do they have given that they are 0-8?  It's not like the public is gonna turn on Green because he's costing the team a playoff spot?  Alternatively, could it really be day-to-day at this point?  Are there no beat reporters in Cinci that can tell us what's REALLY going on?

I drafted him in the 6th in a one man keeper on the rd you drafted, only players after 3rd

Have to. Imagine he walks in the off-season and lands with a real Qb. Or he stays and Cincy drafts Tua or Burrow.

I've got him as a 11th round keeper for next 2 years so I'll hold him. Redraft and he'd have been out of here 2 weeks ago.

Dropped him for Guice who was sitting on the wire. The dude balls when he is healthy but its now clear that this offense is not a sustainable well of fantasy points, and if he even sees the field it will just be a trap for the doe-eyed hopefuls of this world such as myself. I'd rather not.

As if this situation couldn't get any worse... just read the other day that John Ross could/should be back from IR in a couple weeks. 

Fighting Ross Boyd and possibly Tate for targets from a rookie QB in a lost season.  Yippie.

This is correct, but you also can't make any trade offers if he goes to Q while he's in your IR slot, you have to move him out just to make the offer which hamstrings you

Edit - I'm sure about this in ESPN leagues as I have him there.  Yahoo may allow it, don't know

I'm not sure. I'm on Yahoo and can make offers and it doesn't mention anything. Usually when you attempt to do anything, you'll get the error about him not being out.

Also, he's just been ruled OUT (not officially of course).

A.J. Green (ankle) is out for Week 11 against the Raiders.

Bengals coach Zac Taylor said the swelling in Green's left ankle has gone down, but admitted he's still not ready to resume practicing. Cincinnati has so far been reluctant to shut Green down, though his return does not appear imminent. The Bengals promoted WR Damion Willis from their practice squad Friday, suggesting Alex Erickson (back) could also be in danger of missing Sunday's game in Oakland.

What a waste of a roster spot all year.

Guess this is the true definition of high risk-high reward.

I'm not ready to throw in the towel and cut Green in redraft just yet. Perhaps if he's not on the field by week 13.

Of course there's been a huge sunk cost. But too much potential value to be putting on the waiver wire this time of year unless immediately replacing it with equal/better option.

I hate how ESPN does their designations. It took them all the way until today to mark him out even though he hasn’t played.

This is where I am.  Only thing more painful than the sunk cost would be dropping him, having someone else pick him up and him contributing to another team in the playoff weeks.

They have to wait until Cincinnati officially lists him as out. Same with Yahoo.

I picked him up as a lotto ticket in my dynasty league.  Looks like I have to hope for something next year.

If it was Dalton at QB I would hold out a little longer but with Finley even a healthy AJ would only be a WR3. Wk 15 is vs. NE defense. I'm out.

My thought which has already been expressed here is why would he play with this team thereby hurting his free agency prospects.

There is some value to the thought of being able to show other teams that you are fully recovered, but it probably won't matter that much.  He will have suitors for his services regardless.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 12.

It seems incredibly unlikely that Green plays a single snap in 2019. Tyler Boyd is the only receiver in this offense that deserves even a little bit of fantasy consideration. This is mostly because he's due for positive TD regression, as his 94 targets are tied with D.J. Moore for the most in the league among all players with one or fewer receiving touchdowns. Still, Boyd isn't anything more than an upside WR4 in a not-great matchup as long as the league's single-worst QB is operating under center.

He's lost so much good faith with the fantasy community. Previous to this, you never saw an ill word towards this guy. Now, he's just about universally detested.

I hope your are right because I will be ecstatic if AJ is available in the 5th round of next year's fantasy draft (even if he is still on the Bungles).

Held onto him for 8 weeks in redraft - cut before week 9 - quite sure he doesn't play in 2019

Will be targeting him in 2020 redraft

CIN's run game has been atrocious.  Only MIA has a lower YPC, and only ATL has run less.  They have been playing from behind all season, and their 70/30 pass/run ratio is only matched by ATL.  I doubt their run game will turn it around, and they will continue to throw from behind.  CIN's season is toast, and they are gonna let Finley throw as much as he wants.  Sure, he may completely suck, but the WR targets will continue.  And, if Finley can't handle the job, they will revert to Dalton to finish the season.

:goodposting:

I'm wondering if this might be a deciding factor for AJG to make a return to the field...at the very least it should boost Boyd's value back to its early season level.

I think if Andy plays AJ plays.

Will be fun if they get the one win and shut it down.

Finley vs NE in a couple weeks would be an ugly scene.

All this said, I really would like to see Dolegala get a game or two.  He is way more intriguing than Finley ever was.

Dalton and his WR corps could produce well vs NYJ this week.  The Jets run D has been outstanding.  They lead the NFL in fewest yards and also YPC.  For the purpose of this thread, the question is, will AJ suit up?  I did read the Rotoworld blurb suggesting AJ may play if Dalton does, but I will believe it when I see it.

Yep.   Will believe it when I see it at this point.   He is probably settling in for the holidays with the family.
