|A few months ago I wouldn’t have imagined spending time covering James. But with Ladarius Green recovering from surgery, James is going to have a chance to show the Steelers what he brings to the table. The 6’7 behemoth from Penn State is a gifted athlete and would be an intriguing look should Green’s recovery not go as planned. I wouldn’t expect a high reception volume, but he might have some value in touchdown heavy leagues if he were to earn starter’s playing time.

|For the Steelers, LB James Harrison (shoulder, triceps) should be good to go, while TE Ladarius Green (concussion, illness) shouldn't be. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Green was able to practice twice this week but just like the last four weeks he will sit on Sunday. Jesse James will serve as the Steelers tight end against the Patriots.

TE still in concussion prototcol

|Told no last minute surprise. Steelers' playmaking TE will be out. (Aditi Kinkhabwala on Twitter)|
FFToday'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.

Missed practice Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jan 6, 1:00 pm
|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)|
FFToday'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.
