News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 28): Green got open downfield for big gains twice against the Colts and made it look easy. Against the Giants this week with extra rest coming off of Thanksgiving, Green has upside streamer TE1 written all over him.
General News (Tue Nov 29): should expect increased reps moving forward and has the coaching staff "excited" about potential contributions, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.
Week 13: vs New York Giants
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Ben Roethlisberger enjoyed the indoors accomodations at Lucas Oil Stadium last weekend, and threw 14/20 for 221 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions during a 28-7 win. He put on a clinic with Antonio Brown (how to score passing TDs) with six targets for 5/91/3 flowing to the Steelers' super-star. Ladarius Green was second on the team with three targets for 2/67/0, and he's expected to do more during December - Green should expect increased reps moving forward and has the coaching staff 'excited' about potential contributions, according to head coach Mike Tomlin on Monday November 28. We'll see if Green can stay healthy... Eli Rogers was third on the team last week with two targets for 2/36/0 receiving. Roethlisberger and Brown are on a roll entering Week 13. The Giants' pass defense averages 264.7 net passing yards allowed per game (24th in the NFL) with 10 passing scores given out balanced by 10 interceptions (tied for eighth in the NFL) and 25 sacks (tied for 13th) generated. From Week Nine to Week 12 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 14 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), New York has averaged 16.6 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (fourth-least in the NFL); and 18.7 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (fifth-least); with 10.5 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (fifth-most). Last week, Josh McCown threw 25/44 for 285 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions vs. the Giants, but he took seven sacks for -37 yards in so doing. This looks like a good matchup for the home-team Steelers, who tend to exploit home-field advantage to it's fullest inside Heinz Field.

Latest NewsSteelers | Ladarius Green making solid progress (Tue Nov 29, 12:49 PM) - 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. Our View: Go ahead and grab Green off the waiver wire if he's available. We're also excited about his potential...always have been, especially in this offense. As the fantasy playoffs near, Green is the type of player who could help you win and move on in the tournament.
link to story Steelers | Ladarius Green on the upswing? (Sat Nov 26, 01:57 PM) - 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. Our View: Green is in an amazing offense, and his physical talent has always been elite. However, he's never really played up to that potential in the pros. We'll stash him in deeper leagues hoping for a breakout, but we're not banking on it to happen.
link to story Steelers | Ladarius Green to be full go in Week 12 (Wed Nov 23, 02:08 AM) - 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. Our View: We've got Green as a 'what the heck' flex this week against the Colts on Thanksgiving. The Steelers offense should be able to put up big numbers against a banged up (and really not that talented) Colts defense. It will be interesting to see who emerges in the passing game behind superstar WR Antonio Brown.
