Steelers | Ladarius Green could see 30 to 40 snaps

Sat, 10 Dec 2016 15:32:16 -0800

Steelers TE Ladarius Green played 35 snaps in Week 13 after totaling 34 in his first three weeks back. According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, Green can expect 30 to 40 snaps going forward because of the Steelers' usage of run-heavy sets.

Fantasy Tip: Green was one of the more pleasant surprises of Week 13, finishing with six catches on 11 targets for 110 yards and a touchdown. There's plenty of reason to believe he's capable of posting similar numbers going forward, as he is a great downfield threat for a tight end and has Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown to keep defenders occupied. With 30 to 40 snaps weekly, Green should be considered a TE1.

Steelers | Ladarius Green misses practice

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 17:16:07 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (non-injury) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: It may have just been a day of rest for Green, and there has been no indication that his status for Week 14 is in jeopardy. Coming off a 110-yard performance, he is a TE1 against the Bills.

Steelers | Ladarius Green shines in win

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 23:01:33 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green posted six receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the New York Giants. "I'm not close to where I thought I would be, but I'm getting closer," Green said Sunday, Dec. 4. "I'm building a little more confidence every game."

Fantasy Tip: Green was targeted 11 times, and it was a combination of Green getting better in the offense, healthier and the Giants not paying much mind to opposing tight ends. He is worth adding in all fantasy leagues in Week 14, especially if you continue to search for a replacement for someone like Rob Gronkowski.

Steelers | Ladarius Green making solid progress

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 09:49:35 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green should expect increased reps moving forward and has the coaching staff "excited" about potential contributions, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: Green has yet to play more than 14 snaps in any of the three games since his return, but it sounds as if that is about to change. He is rare downfield threat for a player at his position for a team that is beat up at receiver, and he flashed his big-play ability Thanksgiving night by gashing the Indianapolis Colts for 67 yards on two catches. While his biggest impact will probably be felt in 2017, he has at least entered the TE2 conversation.

Steelers | Ladarius Green on the upswing?

Sat, 26 Nov 2016 10:57:51 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green played only 14-of-54 snaps in Week 12 against the Indianapolis Colts after getting 20 total snaps in his first two weeks back from injury, but head coach Mike Tomlin sounded as if he's ready to see his level of participation increase. "There's one thing to be healthy. There's another to be football-ready. He's been healthy for a number of weeks, and we're seeing him display some football readiness, so hopefully that continues," Tomlin said.

Fantasy Tip: It's important to remember Green didn't log his first practice - offseason or regular season - with the team until Oct. 25, so the fact he is contributing at all a month later is rather amazing. He still shouldn't be expected to be a difference-maker during the fantasy playoffs, but he is definitely making a case for himself to head into 2017 on the right note.

Steelers | Ladarius Green to be full go in Week 12

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 23:08:17 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green will not be under any snap restrictions in Week 12, according to offensive coordinator Todd Haley, who said Green would be a "full go" against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Green's goose egg against the Browns this past Sunday was a major disappointment, but Haley says the training wheels are coming off, and the Colts have some health concerns in their secondary. If you're looking for a high-upside play, Green has some appeal.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (knee) played 12 snaps in his debut in Week 10, and he said he is going to be involved in the game plan more going forward.

Steelers | Ladarius Green limited

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 13:29:21 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Green received limited snaps in Week 10 since it was his first game of the season but should receive more work this week. He may receive more targets in the passing game because of the injuries the team had at wide receiver. He will have a favorable matchup in Week 11 and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.
