News: 3 days agoGreen gathered in three of six passes for 44 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 34-33 victory against the Vikings.
Spin: In his first two games with the Cardinals, Green is tied for second on the team in terms of targets (12) with DeAndre Hopkins, which is one behind rookie Rondale Moore (13). But among the six Cards with at least eight targets, Green is the only one with a catch rate below 50 percent (41.7 percent, to be precise). At the very least, though, his five grabs have gone for an average of 13.8 yards, and he recorded his first score in an Arizona uniform from nine yards out in the third quarter Sunday. Green and Kyler Murray will attempt to work out the kinks further in a Week 3 contest at Jacksonville.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Green signed with Arizona after spending his first 10 NFL seasons in Cincinnati. Green is coming off what was easily the worst season of his career, ranking 27th in routes and 26th in targets among WRs, but outside the top 60 in receptions, yardage and TDs. His 44% catch rate, 4.9 YPT and 1.8 RAC all ranked dead last, though 25% of balls thrown his way were off target (seventh highest). Perhaps Green will bounce back opposite heavily targeted DeAndre Hopkins, but it's hard to get too excited, considering he's now 33 years old, last season's performance and his shaky durability (missed at least six games in three of the past five seasons). Despite the concerns, Green's resume and starting gig in a good offense are enough to make him worth a late flier.
