2016 Fantasy Football Tight Ends: Number 9 – Ladarius Green
2015 Stats: 37 REC 429 YDS 4 TDS
Ladarius Green was one of the Steelers’ best offseason signings, giving the team their best tight end threat since Heath Miller. Green will be a big part of the Pittsburgh offense with Le’Veon Bell suspended for the first four games and Martavis Bryant likely suspended the whole season.
The 26-year old tight end had a solid 2015 season in San Diego, filling in for Antonio Gates while he dealt with injuries. It will be exciting to see what he can do as a number one tight end.
The presence of Antonio Bryant will shift a lot of the opposing defenses’ focus elsewhere, so look for Green to have a huge year in Pittsburgh. If you’re still in need of a tight end late in your fantasy draft, Ladarius Green would be a great pick up.
While Green is a nice option to have, don’t go after him until the mid to later rounds.
