A.J. Green injury update: Limited practice, is fantasy star in trouble?

Could the Bengals star receiver be in doubt this week? We break down the fantasy implications.

Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green as a limited participant in Wednesday practice which probably raised some eyes for fantasy owners but likely won't mean much in the long run. Green isn't just the likely best player in Cincinnati, but has started to elevate his game up there with any other receiver in the league and so it's probable that the team is giving him as much rest as he needs. The Bengals play the Browns in Week 6, the 26th ranked passing defense, but they only just got Joe Haden back from suspension.

Fantasy Take: It's a little concerning for any receiver to face off against Haden, especially if his knee still hurt, but Green has scored in four straight games. You can never bench Green, he deserves the same respect as Calvin Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald.
