A little bit of research would tell you he is a safe stash on your bench because he will be back.

He’ll be a top receiver when he returns. He just got traded in my local for McCoy and Chark

So now he's on track to play week 10 and the Bengals have benched Dalton. This has not gone well for those of us that drafted him late and been waiting.

It may open things up for the Mixon owners

I know in my league (12 team) the FA wire is pretty dismal. If you have the room, I would keep him. Or if you need players, maybe dangle him out for trade bait. Some are more optimistic about his return and his effectiveness in that putrid offense.

Going to be a lot of owners burned the last few years. Josh Gordon owners basically every year.  Melvin Gordon. AJ Green. Antonio Brown. Kareem Hunt. People thought they were getting a steal for a low price. 

 

Now just when AJ comes back and might be good, he has a rookie QB throwing to him.  Who knows maybe he'll be better than Dalton but I wouldn't count on it

never draft injured players

The initial call was "a few weeks". Meaning game 1 and 2. Then it became a month then that became week 10...supposedly

 

That said one of the reasons I didn't draft Kupp this year was because he supposedly might be a little slow coming off of ACL surgery. Instead he came out with his hair on fire from game one

that is true!

I have been burned enough that I never believe "a few weeks", ever. I traded AJ Green in my dynasty Aug. 1 (just checked) because these things are almost always understated.

I drafted Green in round 7. I wouldn't have necessarily picked anyone better as I squandered my 4th, 5th, and 6th round picks this year on Robert Woods, Mike Williams and Tarik Cohen.

In our league we have designated IR spots... someone drafted Green and dropped him week 3. I picked him and just stashed him on my IR. I am hoping someone goes all-in and sends me a trade for him next week.

You make a good point.  AJ where he was selected in your draft may not be bad. He was 8th round in mine. And my 6,7,8 picks were Robby Anderson, Fuller, DJ Moore.  Fuller won me one week, then has been worthless.  DJ Moore steady if unspectacular, and Anderson a bust mainly so far.  AJ Green may be as valuable as any of them.

And then we’ll hear about how your brother’s girlfriends sisters cousin was scheming against your cousins sisters best friend and they colluded and you didn’t get a chance to get value so you’re thinking about quitting all together

Looks like AJ's ankle may not heal until he gets a new contract??  ;). I am semi-joking.....

i mentioned it else where so I'm not semi-joking... he self-IRed himself. I'd be surprised if he plays another game for CIN

Yes, we have you on record on this one, you might be correct.... the opposing view would be I would think he'd want to demonstrate he can still play.  Although, understandably he'd want to be at 100%.  I don't know if he will get the guaranteed contract he wants unless he can demonstrate he's ok, which makes me think he'd want to play if he can, but who knows

He only needs to show 1 great game.

 

Probably waiting for a good match up since Dalton is not playing anymore.  Or maybe they put Dalton back in if the new QB sucks really bad.

i guess my point is, less about what I said, and more about how players are starting to escalate manipulating the system to their advantage, finally. Antonio hiring a social media firm to help force his way out of OAK is going to change things.

I think AJ Green was on the active roster enough to accrue a season and

Now he's not expected to play. He looked SO good in the 8th round expected to return in a few weeks. lol  I hate to drop him and watch him go off next week on someone else's team. Fantasy misery!
