Steelers | No hope for Ladarius Green?

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 18:05:26 -0700

The Pittsburgh Steelers do not appear to have much faith in TE Ladarius Green producing for them, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette.

Fantasy Tip: Green has been a perennial tease in fantasy, blessed with a wealth of talent and no durability. Despite heading only the second season of four-year, $20 million contract, he may be on the way out of Pittsburgh if the Steelers find a tight end they like in the draft to pair with Jesse James.

Steelers | Ladarius Green plans to be at workouts

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 15:36:33 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) said he expects to participate in the offseason workouts and is excited to return.

Fantasy Tip: Green was limited to six games in 2016 because of injuries and finished with 304 yards and one touchdown. He should have a solid role in the passing game next season if he stays healthy and can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 tight end in most leagues.

Steelers | Pittsburgh expects Ladarius Green back

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 19:39:30 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is expected to be ready for the start of spring practice, according to general manager Kevin Colbert.

Fantasy Tip: Green's concussion history is concerning, but he showed flashes of his potential when healthy in 2016. Feel free to gamble on his TE1 upside, but make sure you have a solid alternative in place.

Steelers | Ladarius Green yet to be cleared

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 17:48:50 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green is not currently in the NFL's concussion protocol, but he's yet to be cleared from a concussion that he sustained in the team's Week 15 game opposite the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: This is definitely concerning, as health continues to be a roadblock for the 26-year-old tight end. Green has flashed notable potential before of being a legitimate TE1, but until he proves he can stay healthy, owners should look elsewhere in that department. He was limited to just six games this past season.

Steelers | Ladarius Green likely to stay put?

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 20:38:59 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green is likely to remain on the roster, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, who believes there is "no reason for them not to bring him back." He added: "His health will determine what happens from there."

Fantasy Tip: Of course, that last item is huge, as health has always been the main bugaboo about Green's career. The 26-year-old has a history of concussions and was limited to just six games this past season, and while he's shown glimpses of being a legitimate, dependable TE1, it doesn't mean much if he can't get off the sidelines. Green will have to prove he can stay on the field before being relied upon in fantasy leagues in '17.

Steelers | PIT can save cap space if Ladarius Green cut

Sun, 12 Feb 2017 15:13:11 -0800

The Pittsburgh Steelers could save $5 million in salary cap space if they released TE Ladarius Green (concussion) with a post-June 1 designation.

Fantasy Tip: Green has suffered multiple concussions over the last few years and has also dealt with other injuries. The Steelers have Jesse James and Xavier Grimble on the roster, so Green could become available in free agency. None of the Steelers tight ends should be considered a No. 1 fantasy tight end at this point.

Steelers | Ladarius Green's future with Steelers in question

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 13:11:36 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green has "physical conditions" the Steelers need to evaluate this offseason, according to owner Art Rooney. Rooney was non-committal on Green's future in Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Tip: Green's main concern regarding his future is the multiple concussions he's sustained. His offensive skill is undeniable, but he may be too much of a liability in real life and in fantasy football.

Steelers | Ladarius Green may not stick around

Sun, 29 Jan 2017 10:36:03 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green could be released before the start of the 2017 season, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette.

Fantasy Tip: To be clear, Bouchette said it was "possible" Green won't return. The fifth-year pro, who signed a four-year, $20 million contract last March, has long been one of the most talented players at his position in the league, but his concussion and overall durability issues are concerning to say the least. Jesse James stepped up his play down the stretch this year and would presumably take over the lead role in his absence, but he is little more than a TE2 option most weeks.

Steelers | Ladarius Green not retiring

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 13:34:02 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) would like to return to the Steelers next season. He is not considering retirement despite suffering multiple concussions with multiple teams. "Frustrating season, but everybody has one," Green said. "I hope it's the only one I have. I'm going to go train as soon as I get home, and hopefully next season works out a lot better."

Fantasy Tip: Green showed promise when he did play in his first season with Pittsburgh, which was only in six games. He caught 18 passes for 304 yards and a touchdown in those contests, including a 110-yard performance in early December. He'll need to prove he can stay healthy and play consistently before he's even thought about as a TE1.

Steelers | Ladarius Green not part of game plan

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 12:47:31 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is not part of the team's game plan for the AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots. Green could be active for the game but would not receive playing time.

Fantasy Tip: Green has not been cleared to play and likely will sit out another game. Jesse James is coming off a solid performance in the last game and should receive a decent amount of targets against the Patriots. James could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Steelers | Ladarius Green not expected to play

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 07:29:13 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion, illness) is not expected to play in the AFC Championship game versus the New England Patriots Sunday, Jan. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Green was a limited participant in practice Friday, Jan. 20, but remains in the league's concussion protocol and hasn't suited up for a game since Week 15. He should be avoided in all fantasy playoff pools even if he is miraculously cleared to play Sunday.

Steelers | Ladarius Green listed as questionable

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 14:17:41 -0800

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 20, and is listed as questionable for the AFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: Green still has not been cleared to play but his status could change leading up to the game. He probably will not be able to play, but owners can check the inactive list for his status. Owners in all leagues should look for other options and can avoid Green.

Steelers | Ladarius Green back at practice

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 10:15:20 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) still remains in the league's concussion protocol, but he was able to practice Friday, Jan. 20, although he did not do so with the first team. He is expected to make the trip to New England but not expected to play in the AFC Championship Game against the Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Green hasn't played since Week 15 and is obviously struggling to clear the last hurdle or two of the protocol, so it would be a shock if he is able to contribute in any fashion on Sunday. Jesse James is in line to draw another start and is a middling option at best versus the Patriots.

Steelers | Ladarius Green downgraded

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 13:28:20 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion, illness) did not practice Thursday, Jan. 19, after being limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 18.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Green is headed to another absence this week. Jesse James is a capable starter, but he doesn't have the offensive potential that Green does. Look for Pittsburgh to lean heavily on Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell once again.

Steelers | Ladarius Green limited Wednesday

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 13:14:17 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Green will be cleared to play in the AFC Championship game. Green will be a risky fantasy option for owners this week but will have some value if he is active for the game. He could be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in leagues.

Steelers | Ladarius Green not expected to suit up

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 20:53:04 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is not expected to play in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 22, against the New England Patriots, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette.

Fantasy Tip: Green is still in the NFL's concussion protocol, so this declaration seems more likely to occur than not at this point, especially given the former Charger's history with concussions. With Green probably remaining on the sidelines, Jesse James will slide back into the starting tight end spot and offer solid value for DFS lineups this weekend.

Steelers | Ladarius Green struggling to get back

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 09:37:54 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: Green has been sidelined since Week 15, although Tomlin said he had a chance to play in the Divisional Round before ultimately being ruled out. Although Jesse James had a fine game last week, the Steelers could really use all hands on deck in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots after failing to score a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs. Owners should consider him highly questionable at best.

Steelers | Ladarius Green misses practice

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 13:12:18 -0800

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 13, and is listed as doubtful for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Green has not been cleared to play yet and likely will miss another game because of his concussions, so owners in all leagues should avoid him. Jesse James likely will start at tight end for the Steelers but should also be avoided.

Steelers | Ladarius Green tabbed doubtful

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 11:21:53 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is listed as doubtful for the team's Divisional Round playoff game Sunday, Jan. 15, against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Green hasn't played since Week 15, and considering he hasn't even practiced this week, it seems highly unlikely that he'll be able to suit up on Sunday. With Green headed towards his fourth straight absence, Jesse James should once again get the majority of snaps at tight end, and actually could end up being one of the best values at his position this weekend for DFS.

Steelers | Ladarius Green remains sidelined

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 12:37:37 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday, Jan. 12.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Green will miss another game, so owners should avoid him in all fantasy leagues. Jesse James probably will receive a few targets during the game but is not a strong fantasy option and can be avoided.

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 12:58:23 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Green is still in the concussion protocol and will not be able to play if he does not receive clearance from the doctors. Owners can keep an eye on the situation, but he probably should be avoided in fantasy leagues even if he is active for the game.

Steelers | Ladarius Green remains in protocol

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 10:41:21 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) participated in two full practices last week before sitting out the last one of the week after the team did not get the results they wanted from him following a post-practice test, keeping him in the league's concussion protocol.

Fantasy Tip: Green may follow a similar routine this week, but he is far from a sure thing to suit up this weekend as he has not played since Week 15 and a troubling history with concussions. The Steelers' offense has been humming recently without him, but a healthy Green would further tax defenses and make Antonio Brown as well as Le'Veon Bell even harder to defend. Even if he clears protocol this week, he'll spend most of the game in Eric Berry's coverage, making him a poor option in fantasy.

Steelers | Ladarius Green declared out

Sun, 08 Jan 2017 07:47:25 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) will not play in the Wild Card game against the Miami Dolphins Sunday, Jan. 8, after being unable to clear concussion protocol.

Fantasy Tip: Green was a full participant in two practice sessions during the week but will be sidelined for the second consecutive game after failing to receive clearance from an independent neurologist. TEs Xavier Grimble and Jesse James are expected to split time at the position and have a favorable matchup versus the Dolphins, making them worthy of consideration for DFS lineups.

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is listed as questionable for the Wild Card playoff game against the Miami Dolphins. Green did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Green may have suffered a setback at some point, but owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Green will be cleared to play. Owners may want to look for other options to use since Green is a risky option and may not play.

Steelers | Ladarius Green misses practice Friday

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 10:02:43 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) sat out practice Friday, Jan. 6, after participating in full each of the previous two days and remains in the league's concussion protocol.

Fantasy Tip: It means Green has yet to receive clearance from an independent neurologist and is highly unlikely to play Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. The downgrade is a shame for fantasy owners as Miami has been abysmal against tight ends. If Green sits, DFS owners should strongly consider investing in a few shares of Xavier Grimble and bump up their previous projections a bit on Eli Rogers.

Steelers | Ladarius Green fully practices

Thu, 05 Jan 2017 13:12:37 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Jan. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Green adds yet another weapon to an already potent offense. He was involved when he did play in 2016, despite a limited workload. That involvement is a good sign for his 2017 prospects in what will hopefully be his first full season with the Steelers. He should be considered a borderline TE1 for 2017 drafts if he's fully healthy.

Steelers | Full practice for Ladarius Green

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 12:58:40 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Green missed the final two regular season games but appears to have a decent chance to play against the Miami Dolphins. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if he has any setbacks during the week. He will be a risky option for owners this week but could be a low-end No. 1 tight end if he is active.

Steelers | Ladarius Green might be ready to play

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 12:31:19 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is still in the NFL's concussion protocol, but head coach Mike Tomlin said he looks good and that he could play against the Miami Dolphins this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Green gives the Steelers another valuable weapon in the passing game, something Jesse James can't provide. He's a risky fantasy draft pick even if he's healthy in the offseason, but he does have TE1 potential in a potent offense.

Steelers | Ladarius Green still in protocol

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 10:08:42 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol, but head coach Mike Tomlin told reporters Green "looks good" in practice and is among a handful of injured Steelers who could play in the AFC Wild-Card game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, Jan. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Green has a concerning concussion history and will probably remain a high-risk fantasy property for the remainder of his career as a result, but he is a difference-maker when he actually sees the field and provides the Steelers with a much-needed third weapon to take some of the burden off Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell. If he is cleared for this weekend, he automatically becomes one of the top plays at his position in DFS and playoff leagues.

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 13:48:26 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 30, and has been ruled out for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Jesse James should receive most of the playing time at tight end with Green out another week. He is coming off a 49-yard performance in Week 16, but owners in most leagues should be able to find better options and can avoid James.

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 18:53:02 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

Steelers | Ladarius Green still in protocol

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 10:13:15 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is still in the league's concussion protocol and not expected to play in Week 17 versus the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: With the Steelers planning to rest so many of their key players, it would make virtually no sense to rush Green back. Jesse James and Xavier Grimble should see the majority of snaps at tight end this weekend, although neither player is an enticing fantasy option with Landry Jones expected to lead the offense.

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 06:26:57 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is not expected to play in Week 16's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Green is listed as doubtful on the injury report and did not practice at all during the week. Jesse James should get the bulk of the work at tight end versus the Ravens but he is not a great fantasy option.

Steelers | Ladarius Green's Week 16 status up in air

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 14:42:20 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green's (concussion) status for the team's Week 16 game Sunday, Dec. 25, versus the Baltimore Ravens is up in the air. He's still under concussion protocol and will be meeting Dr. Mickey Collins of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center for evaluation.

Fantasy Tip: It seems Green is closer to the doubtful side for Sunday's huge tilt with the Ravens, as he may not escape concussion protocol in time to suit up. It's a tough break for the former San Diego Charger, as he's finally settled in with his new team after missing the first nine games of the campaign. In fact, he's recorded more than 65 yards in three of his last four games, while drawing a desirable 34 targets over that span. If he has to sit, Jesse James would be a fine streaming option.

Steelers | Ladarius Green held in check

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 13:53:09 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green caught two passes for 25 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Green was coming off a very good game in Week 13 but was held to two catches against the Bills. He will continue to see a solid amount of targets moving forward and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

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 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.
