Make no mistake about it: 2017 was a rough year for the Cincinnati Bengals.
Despite entering the season looking to recover from a disappointing 2016 campaign, the team struggled to an 0-3 start and never really regained any traction, finishing under .500 for the second straight year. In spite of firing coordinator Ken Zampese after Week 2, the offense remained in the tank, finishing 24th by our opponent-adjusted metrics.
It was a year to forget in the Queen City, and Bengals fans and fantasy players alike felt the disappointment.
However, some of that frustration has lingered in to 2018. So much so, that it's starting to affect the average draft position (ADP) of A.J. Green. While it's true that Green's 2017 season was far from his best, he still racked up 75 catches for 1,078 yards and 8 touchdowns and finished as the WR10 in fantasy.
In the process, he earned his seventh straight Pro Bowl nod and further solidified a potential Hall of Fame resume.
And yet, the fantasy community seems less than impressed. At this very moment, Green has a late-second round ADP in early fantasy drafts, and you can roster him for the cost of the 22nd overall selection. This is a prime example of market inefficiency.
