Summary

Ladarius Green has been on fantasy owners radar since coming into the league as a fourth-round pick of the San Diego Chargers in 2012. Green was supposed to be the next great Chargers TE as he was being groomed behind their superstar Antonio Gates. While the Chargers wanted him to flourish as a receiver in their offense, Green mostly disappointed during his time with the Chargers--even as Gates fought through injuries. Green had a career-high 63 targets, 37 receptions, 429 yards and four touchdowns in 2015. It wasn't enough for the Chargers to keep him in free agency, and he's found a new home with the Steelers. With Heath Miller retired, the Steelers are looking for a new lead TE for their explosive offense and Green will get the first crack to be that guy. If he finally plays up to his potential, Green has the ability and is in the system to be at least a high-upside TE2 for fantasy owners in 2016. (May 18)

Steelers | Ladarius Green idle from ankle surgery (Wed May 25, 02:32 PM) - 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.

Our View: Green has always had the talent, but he's a player who has never truly played up to his potential. This ankle surgery is not a great start now that he's with a new team. The team should accelerate his learning curve if he's ready for training camp. With Green out, second-year pro Jesse James will get an opportunity to showcase his skill set.

Steelers | Pittsburgh may use two TEs in red zone (Mon May 23, 09:24 PM) - 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.

Our View: That would make a lot of sense..especially since WR Martavis Bryant is suspended for the year. Green has a fine skill set, but he's never really played up to his full potential. The Steelers would like him to do that this year, but they also have the huge prospect (second-year TE Jesse James) to develop as well. James is raw at the position, but he's tall, has a large wingspan and can play 'above the rim' in the NFL.
