When the NFL Top 100 Players of 2014 airs next week, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver is expected to be on the list. Down to just 10 players left, Green is expected to hear his name called somewhere between 10-1.

In 2012, Green was voted in as the 16th-best player in the NFL by his peers. His nine-game streak in 2012 with at least one TD reception set a Bengals record for longest streak in a single season helped solidify his status as one of the league's best receivers.

So, what should we expect for him in this year's rankings? This past season, Green's 88 receptions for 1,426 yards and 11 TDs were overall similar to his '12 numbers of 97 catches for 1,350 yards and 11 scores.

If you go based off Pro Football Focus' advanced statistics, he actually should fall this year. In '12, Green had a 17.4 grade, but that dipped to 8.4 in 2013.
