Ladarius Green Fantasy Football News 2017

The Steelers have released TE Ladarius Green. That they made the move now suggests that Green just wasn't making the progress the Steelers were hoping for. He missed all but 6 games last year with concussion and ankle issues. His 4 career concussions are obviously the bigger concern and have Green's career on the ropes. We'll continue to keep an eye on a guy who has difference-making potential when healthy. Jesse James, meanwhile, looks like Pittsburgh's starting TE moving forward. He's worth a look as a lower-end TE2 in best-ball drafts.

Steelers TE Ladarius Green is participating in the team's offseason workouts this week, per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Green missed 10 games last year with ankle and concussion issues. He's suffered 4 concussions as a pro, clouding his football future. Pittsburgh is at least hoping he's able to return for the 2017 season. We'll see how Green fares throughout the rest of the spring and summer. He's a high-upside fantasy option when healthy.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette believes there's a chance the Steelers cut ties with TE Ladarius Green this offseason. Green just inked a 4-year, $20 million deal with Pittsburgh last March. But he missed the majority of the offseason and appeared in just 6 games with ankle and concussion issues. The concussions -- Green has sustained 4 as a pro -- are a major concern. We'll keep an eye on the situation this offseason. Green looked dangerous when he was on the field in 2016 and still boasts big fantasy upside if healthy.

Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship against the Patriots. He returned to a limited practice on Friday after sitting out Thursday. Frankly, though, we'd be shocked if Green was cleared to play in New England.

Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) did not practice on Thursday. It's the 2nd straight time he was sidelined the day after putting in a limited workout. Green can't shake this concussion problem. He won't play against the Patriots on Sunday, and there's certainly concern for his long-term outlook.

Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. It's his 1st practice of any kind in 13 days. Green will need to make it through the week without a setback. And even then, he's not a lock to receive clearance for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Stay tuned.

Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He didn't practice all week and won't play. Jesse James will serve as Pittsburgh's lead TE but isn't a recommended fantasy option vs. Kansas City's 5th-ranked TE defense.

Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) didn't practice on Wednesday. He seemingly suffered a setback last Friday and doesn't look particularly likely to be cleared in time for this weekend's game against the Chiefs. We'll continue to monitor his progress.

The Steelers listed TE Ladarius Green (concussion) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. He didn't practice on Friday, though, and HC Mike Tomlin confirmed afterward that he hasn't passed through the concussion protocol. Jesse James will serve as Pittsburgh's lead TE but is a TD-reliant fantasy play. The biggest boost goes to WR Eli Rogers, who averaged 5.4 targets per game without Green vs. 4.0 with him.

Steelers TE Ladarius Green did not practice on Friday and remains in the concussion protocol, HC Mike Tomlin said. That sure sounds like a setback after Green was a full participant on both Wednesday and Thursday. He now looks like a long shot to play against the Dolphins on Sunday. That leaves Jesse James as Pittsburgh's lead TE and should also mean a target boost for WR Eli Rogers.

Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, according to ESPN's Aditi Kinkhabwala. He remains on track to be cleared for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Green will be a big boost for the Steelers passing game -- and a high-upside fantasy option.

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that TE Ladarius Green remains in the concussion protocol but "looks good." Green returned to limited practices last week and is clearly making progress. But we can't yet consider him a lock to play against the Dolphins on Sunday considering his concussion history. We'll continue to keep a close eye on him.

Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is out for this weekend’s game against the Browns. He returned to practice this week, giving him a shot to be back for the playoffs. Jesse James will serve as Pittsburgh’s lead TE vs. Cleveland’s league-worst TE defense. But he’ll be catching passes from QB Landry Jones.

Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. We doubt the Steelers risk throwing him out there for this weekend's meaningless finale against the Browns, but it looks like Green has a good shot to be ready for the Wild Card Round.

Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. He didn’t practice all week, so he presumably still has multiple stages of the protocol to pass through. Fantasy owners obviously can’t be banking on Green. Jesse James figures to draw the start on Christmas but is a weak fantasy play against a tough Ravens TE defense.

Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) didn't practice on Wednesday. The concussion he suffered this past weekend was the 4th of his pro career. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him for Week 16.

Steelers TE Ladarius Green sustained a concussion late in Sunday's win over the Bengals. It's the 4th known concussion of his pro career. And remember that he dealt with headaches throughout the offseason -- presumably related to the concussions. We'll need to track his status through the protocol this week. Pittsburgh has a huge game against the Bengals on Christmas.

Steelers TE Ladarius Green followed up his monster game against the Giants with a dud in Buffalo. Just 2 catches for 25 yards on 6 targets. Roethlisberger’s first INT — inside the Bills’ 20-yard line — was intended for Green in the red zone. In the 4th quarter, Ben flung an incompletion to Green in the back of the end zone. This was a game in which Roethlisberger struggled, and the Steelers fed the ball to RB Le'Veon Bell an astounding 38 times. Green presents a large, explosive target who will get his chances against the Bengals, Ravens and Browns to close out the season.
