Green signed a two-year deal with Toronto on Monday, David William Naylor of TSN reports.

Coming off an outstanding 2017 season that culminated in a Grey Cup victory, Green is set to return to the Argonauts. Green will look to pick up where he left off, as he caught 104 receptions for 1,462 yards and 10 touchdowns over 18 games in 2017.

November 27, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green tallied three receptions for 56 yards in Sunday's 27-24 Grey Cup win over the Stampeders.

Green's receiving yardage total checked in second behind DeVier Posey on the evening for the Argonauts, and one of his catches was a key 10-yard grab on what would be Toronto's game-winning drive. A Grey Cup championship was a fitting way to cap off what was an auspicious season for Green, one that saw him post high-water marks in receptions (104) and receiving yardage (1,462) while also notching double-digit touchdowns for the third time in his storied career. Looking ahead to 2018, the 32-year-old should remain an important piece of the prolific Toronto passing attack.

November 4, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green posted five receptions for 83 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 40-13 win over the Lions.

Green's 34-yard catch in the first quarter allowed him to reach 100 receptions for the first time in his career. The veteran wideout's 10-yard touchdown grab later in the period also gave him double-digit scores for the third time, and he heads into the postseason having tallied between 76 and 159 receiving yards in three of his last four contests. Given his role as the clear-cut No. 1 receiver in a prolific passing offense, Green should profile as a top-tier fantasy option in the playoffs.

October 15, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green caught 13 passes for 159 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 30-27 loss to Edmonton.

He also caught a two-point conversion. Green now leads the CFL in receptions with 95 while sitting third in receiving yards (1337) and second in receiving TDs (nine), as the 32-year-old former Alouette enjoys an unlikely career year in coach Marc Trestman's offense.

October 8, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green posted five receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-24 loss to the Roughriders.

The veteran wideout's clutch 19-yard scoring reception with 4:01 remaining brought the Argonauts within a point of forging a 24-24 tie and served as his third touchdown in the last four games. Green's receiving yardage total was also his best since Week 11 against the Tiger-Cats, and his eight scores on the season serve as his highest total in that category since the 2013 season. He'll look to continue helping the Argonauts make their playoff push versus the Eskimos in Week 17.

September 24, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green posted three receptions for 43 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 33-19 win over the Alouettes.

The veteran wideout brought in a 16-year scoring dart from Ricky Ray shortly before halftime, his second touchdown in as many games. Green has only five catches over the last two contests, but it's important that note that RB James Wilder, Jr.'s outstanding performances in those games have taken a considerable emphasis off the passing game. Green will look to up his production against the vulnerable Tiger-Cats secondary in Week 15.

September 16, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green totaled two receptions for eight yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 34-26 win over the Eskimos.

Green posted a season-low yardage total, but he made up for it by hauling in a short touchdown throw from backup quarterback Cody Fajardo on play action in the first quarter. He also drew a crucial pass interference penalty on the prior play, setting up the Argos at the Eskimos' two-yard line. Despite the subpar production overall, Green remains a pivotal component of the high-powered Toronto passing attack. He'll look to up his production against the Alouettes in Week 14.

September 5, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green caught nine passes for 103 yards in Monday's 24-22 loss to the Tiger-Cats.

It's the second time in three games that Green has hauled in nine passes and topped 100 receiving yards. He's already broken the 1000-yard mark for the season with seven games to go, and the 32-year-old should easily be able to break his previous career high of 1,197, set in 2013 with Montreal.

August 27, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green caught four passes for 49 yards in Saturday's 23-7 loss to the Stampeders.

The Argos' offense couldn't get anything going in this one, failing to score a point and generating just 238 total yards. Despite the limited opportunities, Green still caught at least four passes for the ninth time in 10 games. The slotback is now second in the CFL in receptions (60) and receiving yards (899), and he should put up much better numbers next week against a Ti-Cats defense he torched for seven catches and 124 yards back in Week 1.

August 19, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green posted nine receptions for 145 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 38-6 win over the Als.

The veteran pass catcher put a hurting on his former squad, hauling in touchdown receptions of 16 and 29 yards for the Argos' first two scores. Green crossed the 100-yard mark for only the second time on the season, while making multiple visits to the end zone for the first time in 2017. Even when talented teammates Armanti Edwards and Jeff Fuller are at full strength, Green seems to be quarterback Ricky Ray's top target on the majority of weeks. He'll look to play another major role in next week's potential shootout against the Stamps.

August 11, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green caught four passes for a team-high 32 yards in Friday's 21-9 loss to the Alouettes.

Without Ricky Ray (shoulder) under center, the Argos passing attack was almost non-existent in this one, and Green stumbled to his worst single-game yardage total of the season. Ray could be back in time for Week 9's rematch with the Als in Toronto, but if he remains on the shelf, Green could have a hard time producing useful fantasy numbers.

July 29, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green totaled 68 yards and scored a touchdown on six receptions in Saturday's 38-27 loss to the Riders.

The veteran wideout got back into the end zone after not having scored over the past two games, and he's now recorded 28 receptions over the last four contests overall. Green's second-quarter 14-yard scoring grab, which snapped a 10-10 tie, came as he went up high for the ball while surrounded by two defenders. While the eventual return of DeVier Posey (undisclosed) from the injured list will eat into some of his targets, the rapport he's already established with quarterback Ricky Ray is likely to render him an integral part of the offense throughout the campaign. He'll look to put together another productive performance versus the Stamps in Week 7.

July 25, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green caught seven passes for 66 yards in Monday's 27-24 win over the Redblacks.

The 32-year-old is now second in the CFL in receiving yards with 518, behind only Ottawa's Greg Ellingson, and tied for third in catches with 31. Green has shown no ill effects from last season's knee injury and is well on his way to shattering his previous career highs of 87 receptions and 1,197 yards if he can stay healthy.

July 13, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green caught five passes for 85 yards in Thursday's 33-25 loss to the Blue Bombers.

He's exploded out of the gate for the Argos, catching 24 passes for 452 yards through four games as Ricky Ray's top target. The 32-year-old missed most of last year due to a knee injury and subsequent ACL surgery, but he topped 1,000 receiving yards for Montreal in four of five seasons prior to that and seems well on his way to doing it again in his first campaign with Toronto.

July 8, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green totaled 210 yards and a touchdown on 10 receptions in Saturday's 26-25 win over the Redblacks.

In an offense which increasingly appears as if it will give all of its wideouts a chance to shine, it was Green's turn Saturday, as he tortured the Redblacks secondary throughout the night and produced a nifty 55-yard catch-and-run that erased a 12-7 third-quarter deficit. Green had also generated a remarkable Week 1 effort (seven receptions, 124 yards) before a quiet Week 2, so it could be difficult to pinpoint who will be the primary beneficiary in the Argos' prolific air attack week-to-week. However, Green certainly seems to have a strong rapport with quarterback Ricky Ray, and the fact that he previously played in Trestman's system while both were in Montreal seems to be helping his cause. He'll look to keep up his hot start in a Week 4 matchup against the Blue Bombers.

June 25, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green (knee) compiled 124 yards on seven receptions in Sunday's 32-15 win over Hamilton.

The Argos brought Green along slowly over the last few months following his devastating knee injury last June, one that subsequently required ACL reconstruction surgery in August. However, the veteran slotback and four-time 1,000-yard receiver looked no worse for wear Sunday, checking in only behind teammate DeVier Posey in receiving yards on the afternoon. If Sunday's opener is any indication, it appears that the offensive system of new head coach Marc Trestman -- who Green played under in Montreal from 2008-12 -- may be fertile ground for fantasy production, with the 31-year-old likely to be one of the ongoing beneficiaries. He'll look to put together an impressive encore when he and the Argos tangle with the Lions next Friday night.

June 25, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green (knee) is listed as a starting slotback for Sunday's season opener against the Tiger-Cats.

Green has made it all the way back from a knee injury that ended his 2016 season, and he will take the field Sunday in his first game with the Argonauts. He figures to be one of the top options at the slotback spot for quarterback Ricky Ray.

June 12, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green (knee) has been eased into training camp, according to the CFL's official website, and it remains to be seen if he will be ready for Week 1.

Green's 2016 campaign was cut short by an extensive knee injury, so the Argonauts have plenty reason to take it easy with him during the exhibition season. The good news is he was able to take part in Toronto's first practice of camp, but he did not play in the team's first preseason contest, leaving his availability for Week 1 in question.

April 20, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green (knee) was traded from the Alouettes to the Argonauts on Thursday in exchange for a 2017 sixth-round draft selection along with a conditional pick in the 2018 CFL Draft.

Green will now team up with a former division foe, projected to provide a veteran presence in Toronto after his 2016 campaign was shortened due to a season-ending knee injury. He has spent the past 10 years with the Alouettes, notching 444 receptions for 6,626 yards and 42 scores in 116 career games. Green's offseason workload in the near future will be limited as he continues to recover, but he'll likely compete for the top slotback spot for the Argonauts upon his return to full activity.

April 10, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green (knee) has attended but not participated in practices this week, Didier Ormejuste of RDS Sports reports.

Green tore his ACL last season and underwent surgery to repair his knee in August. He appears to be in danger of missing the start of the season, though he's expected to return at some point in the year.

August 11, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green tore every major ligament in his knee during a game in June which required reconstructive surgery. He underwent the procedure Thursday, performed by Dr. James Andrews, and expects a full recovery. While the 31-year-old slotback might not be ready for the start of the 2017, he expects to return sometime during the season.

July 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green suffered a torn ACL, PCL, MCL, and meniscus in his right knee and will miss the remainder of the season.

Green injured his knee on Thursday in the first half versus Ottawa and had an MRI on Friday. An ACL tear takes a while to recover from, and it could be even longer for Green, being that he tore every major ligament in his knee. With Green out for the year, look for B.J. Cunningham and Kenny Stafford to see an increased role in the offense.

June 30, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green won't return to Thursday's game against the Redblacks after injuring his leg, Didier Ormejuste of RDS sports reports.

Green injured his leg in the first half of Thursday's game against Ottawa. It's unclear at this time how serious the injury is, and he should be considered day-to-day until more information is available.

June 25, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green (knee) caught five passes for 72 yards and a touchdown in Friday's win over the Blue Bombers.

His preseason knee injury didn't seem to be an issue and while Green took a back seat to the returning Duron Carter when it came to catches and yards, he did catch Kevin Glenn's only TD pass of the game. Green and Carter seem set to be one of the best WR tandems in the league this season, and there should be enough targets available for both of them to stay very productive.

June 24, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green (knee) will be in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Blue Bombers.

Green injured his knee in Montreal's final preseason game, but he is good to go for the team's regular season opener Friday night. Green will be looking to repeat or improve upon last year's showing, when he led the Alouettes with 71 receptions and 1,036 receiving yards.

June 21, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Green, who suffered a knee injury Friday against Toronto, was held out of practice Tuesday, the Montreal Gazette reports.

Green is expected to play Friday against Winnipeg, but check his status.
