FF Today's Take:Once Ladarius Green missed practice on Friday we knew it was unlikely he'd suit up against Miami on Sunday. In his absence Jesse James and Xavier Grimble will handle the tight end duties.
Ladarius Green remains in concussion protocol-- Fri Jan 6 1:00 pm --
Missed practice Friday
Ladarius Green did not practice Friday, and Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said after practice Green is questionable for the AFC wild-card game Sunday afternoon against the Dolphins. "He's in the protocol," Tomlin said. "Part of the protocol is practice. He practiced yesterday. We didn't get the type of results we wanted. He remains in the protocol. His status for the game is questionable."(Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)
FF Today's Take:After early week optimism, it appears that Green will miss the wildcard game against the Dolphins. He missed the final two regular season games as well. In his absence, Jesse James and Xavier Grimble will handle the tight end duties but neither is a recommended fantasy option.

Practiced on Wednesday

FF Today's Take:The Steelers tight end needs to be cleared by an independent doctor but all signs point to him being back on the field this Sunday against the Dolphins. he'll be a top fantasy tight end option behind Jimmy Graham. WR Sammie Coates was also at practice Wednesday and should play as well.

Steelers TE could see first action of 2016 against the Cowboys
FF Today's Take:Green isn't a must-own by any stretch, but he's the kind of talent who could shake up the TE ranks and provide a spark during the final third of the season and the fantasy playoffs. He'll be behind Jesse James with a chance to supplant him as the go-to passing TE.
