A.J. Green, WR (ARI)

Fair production in the desert

Green recorded 54 catches (on 92 targets) for 848 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games during the 2021 season.

In 2020, Green logged a complete, injury-free campaign for the first time since 2017 en route to a 47-523-2 line on 104 targets. He parlayed the bounceback into a one-year, $6 million contract with the Cardinals last March, and following the 2021 NFL Draft the team's receiving corps included DeAndre Hopkins, Green, Christian Kirk and rookie second-rounder Rondale Moore. The additions seemingly gave coach Kliff Kingsbury and quarterback Kyler Murray the firepower they lacked in their first two years together, and Arizona was clicking on all cylinders until Hopkins hurt his hamstring Week 8. From that point forward, Hopkins missed eight of the final 10 contests (including playoffs), Murray also sat out three games due to injury, and Green and company struggled with consistency the rest of the way. Green again will be an unrestricted free agent on March 16, so it remains to be seen where the 11-year pro laces them up next season.
