News: 5 days agoGreen gathered in five of nine targets for 50 yards during Monday's 38-10 loss to the 49ers.
Spin: Green's usage has been yanked around this season, but he experienced a season-high in targets on his second-biggest snap share (77 percent) in Week 11. Still, six of his nine targets came from reserve quarterback Trace McSorley once the game was out of hand in the fourth quarter, as he otherwise recorded two catches for 10 yards working with Monday's starter Colt McCoy. There's a chance for Green to remain in the rotation in the short term with Rondale Moore now dealing with a groin injury and Marquise Brown (foot) not yet activated from injured reserve. In the end, though, DeAndre Hopkins (12 targets) and Greg Dortch (10 targets) were the main beneficiaries in this contest, so Green is on the outside looking in within the Cardinals offense.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Green re-signed with Arizona after a relatively successful 2021 campaign with the team. Green played 80% of the snaps during 16 active games and his 54-848-3 receiving line allowed a 41st-place finish in fantasy. He was primarily utilized as an intermediate/deep threat and his 15.7 YPR was 10th highest among wideouts. Green has ranked no lower than 13th at the position in end zone targets each of his last four seasons. He will play a lesser role this season after the acquisition of Marquise Brown, though he'll see a boost in work during DeAndre Hopkins' six-game suspension to open the season. Green's upside is limited at age 34, but he figures to hang on the flex radar while Hopkins is out.
