Steelers | Ladarius Green placed on PUP list

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 14:06:12 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (ankle) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Thursday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Green is recovering from offseason surgery, so it is not known when he will be able to practice again. He should be an important part of the passing game this season and probably will be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 tight end if he is healthy.

Steelers | Ladarius Green idle from ankle surgery

Wed, 25 May 2016 11:32:07 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (ankle) is out of organized team activities as he recovers from offseason ankle surgery. He doesn't have a firm timetable, but he's hopeful to be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't affect his draft stock unless it bleeds far into camp. Green has a ton of upside in this offense, and he's an upper-middle option at the position.

Steelers | Pittsburgh may use two TEs in red zone

Mon, 23 May 2016 18:24:37 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TEs Ladarius Green and Jesse James may both be on the field at the same time in the red zone because of their height.

Fantasy Tip: Green should receive most of the playing time at tight end in 2016 because of his catching ability and should be a low-end No. 1 or No. 2 tight end in most fantasy leagues. James likely will be used as a blocker but can be a threat close to the end zone since he is one of the tallest receivers on the team. He can still be avoided in most leagues.

Steelers | Ladarius Green to stretch the field

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 09:10:48 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green will give the team a vertical threat at the position that retired TE Heath Miller didn't give them. "He'll bring us a dimension at tight end that we really haven't had," general manager Kevin Colbert said. "Heath was a great receiver, a great blocker. He wasn't really a stretch the field guy. Ladarius gives you that added dimension of speed, he'll have to work on his blocking to get caught up to where we need him to be. But the speed and vertical threat at tight end is really something we haven't had."

Fantasy Tip: Green will be a low-end TE1 with a lot of upside in drafts.

Steelers | Xavier Grimble could step up

Sun, 13 Mar 2016 17:03:44 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Xavier Grimble impressed the coaching staff in practice last year with his ability to catch passes down the seam, and he will be in the mix for the No. 2 tight end spot behind TE Ladarius Green, according to general manager Kevin Colbert.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Grimble is able to claim the No. 2 tight end spot, he won't be worth owning in fantasy leagues unless something happens to Green.

Steelers | Ladarius Green had surgery

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 13:19:08 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (ankle) underwent ankle surgery at an undisclosed date, but he believes he'll be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Green is one of the more intriguing tight ends this year with a move to the potent Pittsburgh offense. Green is a great downfield weapon whose value was stunted behind Antonio Gates in San Diego. Now that he's the main man for the Steelers, he's a borderline TE1.

Steelers | Ladarius Green deal for four years

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 20:12:34 -0800

Updating a previous report, free-agent TE Ladarius Green (Chargers) agreed to terms with the Pittsburgh Steelers Wednesday, March 9. The deal is for four years and has $4.75 million in guaranteed money, with a max value of $20 million. The cap hit for the 2016 is just $2.44 million.

Fantasy Tip: Green has been in the shadow of Antonio Gates in San Diego, but showed glimpses of brilliance last season when Gates was suspended, and then injured. Green gets a chance to show what he can do on a much bigger stage, in a much better offense. He could emerge as a Top 10 option at his position for fantasy owners in 2016.

Steelers | Ladarius Green heading to Pittsburgh

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 14:08:58 -0800

Free-agent TE Ladarius Green (Chargers) will join the Pittsburgh Steelers pending a physical, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Steelers find their replacement for Heath Miller and add another dynamic playmaker to an already explosive offense. Green is an injury risk - having suffered multiple concussions among other injuries - but is a freakishly talented tight end with an ability to stretch the field. With Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant to draw coverage away from him, Green could easily flirt with low-end TE1 value.

Steelers | Ladarius Green likely to PIT

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 09:38:43 -0800

San Diego Chargers impending free-agent TE Ladarius Green is expected to sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The move would be big for both sides as Green looks to become a No. 1 tight end, and the Steelers lost Heath Miller to retirement. Green has a loaded offense around him that could allow him to reach the potential as a receiving tight end that he has teased fantasy owners with. Green could be a low-end TE1 consideration in drafts.

Jets | Ladarius Green of interest to Jets?

Sun, 06 Mar 2016 11:08:39 -0800

San Diego Chargers impending free-agent TE Ladarius Green could draw interest from the New York Jets in free agency, according to Brian Costello of The New York Post.

Fantasy Tip: New York's tight ends have definitely underachieved in recent years, and the likes of Jace Amaro and Jeff Cumberland don't exactly strike fear into the hearts of opponents. Green would likely provide the most fantasy value if he were to be signed by the Jets, but this is obviously just speculation right now.
