Arizona Cardinals WR A.J. Green (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 15.
Huddle Up: Green was targeted six times in the regular season opener but finished with only two receptions and 25 yards. He will receive a handful of targets each game, but fantasy players will be able to find better options most weeks.

Arizona Cardinals WR A.J. Green ended up with two receptions for 25 yards on six targets in his team debut in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: The long-time Cincinnati Bengals pass catcher is trying to build a rapport with Kyler Murray, and he has to contend with DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, Rondale Moore and Chase Edmonds for targets. Green's fantasy value is limited to the deepest leagues at this point. The Cards host the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2.

Arizona Cardinals WR A.J. Green (undisclosed) will participate in individual drills during practice Sunday, Aug. 15, according to head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Huddle Up: Green is working his way back on the field and should be ready to play Week 1. He is expected to be a top-three receiver for the Cardinals and likely will see a handful of targets each game. He could be a late round option in some fantasy drafts.

Arizona Cardinals WR A.J. Green still 'has a lot in the tank' and is 'still in his prime,' according to teammate DeAndre Hopkins.
'I probably haven't played with anyone of his caliber. ... I know you guys are probably going to take that and run with it. ... The reason I say that, A.J. still has a lot in the tank. The other two (likely) Hall of Famers I played with (Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Johnson), I'd say, were at the end of their career. They taught me a lot, but I feel like A.J. is still in his prime,' Hopkins said.
Huddle Up: High praise from Hopkins, and it's unlikely the result of deferring to an accomplished veteran. He's had a few practices to see what he needs to see in order to make this kind of statement. There is a distinct chance Green genuinely was ready to get out of Cincinnati around 2019, and it is possible that playing alongside Hopkins - who will undoubtedly take the attention away from Green - will be just what the doctor ordered to revive his career. Green is very much worth a late dart throw late in drafts.

Arizona Cardinals WR A.J. Green is expected to have a big year by QB Kyler Murray. Murray, who has worked out with Green this offseason, is impressed with him. 'I expect A.J. to have a big year,' Murray said. 'I know a lot of people are sleeping on him. I know a lot of things have been said about him maybe not being able to do it anymore. ... I'm glad he's on the team.'
Huddle Up: Green is 33 and has been riddled with injuries throughout his career. He could be a solid WR3 upside grab in PPR leagues, but don't reach for him.

Arizona Cardinals WR A.J. Green 'is a guy ... that could play the 'Z' position for us, has great character ... and I still think he has some stuff left in the tank,' general manager Steve Keim said Tuesday, March 23.
Huddle Up: Green was riddled with injuries in 2018 and 2019 before showing virtually zero chemistry with Joe Burrow and failing to create much separation in 2020. That didn't stop the Cardinals from giving him a one-year deal with a $6 million base salary. If Green can turn back the clock for even one year in 2021, Arizona could be home to the most dynamic offense in the league. The odds are against Green staying healthy, however, meaning he should be considered a late-round flier at best in most leagues.
