Huddle Up: Green has dealt with injuries over the last few seasons and may need to sign an incentive-laden deal with his next team. He is a solid fantasy option when he is healthy, but owners probably should avoid him because of his injury history.

Huddle Up: That experiment didn't go very well for the Steelers. Jesse James now has a firm grasp on the starting tight end job in Pittsburgh. He'll cede some playing time to David Johnson, but James is officially a deep sleeper at his position.

Huddle Up: Green spent a lot more time off the field than he did on it last season, and he hasn't played a full season since 2013. He's a skillful pass-catcher, but the risk is too high to draft him as a TE1.

Huddle Up: Green has been a perennial tease in fantasy, blessed with a wealth of talent and no durability. Despite heading only the second season of four-year, $20 million contract, he may be on the way out of Pittsburgh if the Steelers find a tight end they like in the draft to pair with Jesse James.

Huddle Up: Green was limited to six games in 2016 because of injuries and finished with 304 yards and one touchdown. He should have a solid role in the passing game next season if he stays healthy and can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 tight end in most leagues.

Huddle Up: Green's concussion history is concerning, but he showed flashes of his potential when healthy in 2016. Feel free to gamble on his TE1 upside, but make sure you have a solid alternative in place.

Huddle Up: This is definitely concerning, as health continues to be a roadblock for the 26-year-old tight end. Green has flashed notable potential before of being a legitimate TE1, but until he proves he can stay healthy, owners should look elsewhere in that department. He was limited to just six games this past season.

Huddle Up: Of course, that last item is huge, as health has always been the main bugaboo about Green's career. The 26-year-old has a history of concussions and was limited to just six games this past season, and while he's shown glimpses of being a legitimate, dependable TE1, it doesn't mean much if he can't get off the sidelines. Green will have to prove he can stay on the field before being relied upon in fantasy leagues in '17.

Huddle Up: Green's main concern regarding his future is the multiple concussions he's sustained. His offensive skill is undeniable, but he may be too much of a liability in real life and in fantasy football.

Huddle Up: To be clear, Bouchette said it was 'possible' Green won't return. The fifth-year pro, who signed a four-year, $20 million contract last March, has long been one of the most talented players at his position in the league, but his concussion and overall durability issues are concerning to say the least. Jesse James stepped up his play down the stretch this year and would presumably take over the lead role in his absence, but he is little more than a TE2 option most weeks.

Huddle Up: Green has not been cleared to play and likely will sit out another game. Jesse James is coming off a solid performance in the last game and should receive a decent amount of targets against the Patriots. James could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Huddle Up: Green was a limited participant in practice Friday, Jan. 20, but remains in the league's concussion protocol and hasn't suited up for a game since Week 15. He should be avoided in all fantasy playoff pools even if he is miraculously cleared to play Sunday.
Posted: 1/20/2017 2:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Green still has not been cleared to play but his status could change leading up to the game. He probably will not be able to play, but owners can check the inactive list for his status. Owners in all leagues should look for other options and can avoid Green.
Posted: 1/20/2017 10:15am ET
Huddle Up: Green hasn't played since Week 15 and is obviously struggling to clear the last hurdle or two of the protocol, so it would be a shock if he is able to contribute in any fashion on Sunday. Jesse James is in line to draw another start and is a middling option at best versus the Patriots.
Posted: 1/18/2017 1:14pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Green will be cleared to play in the AFC Championship game. Green will be a risky fantasy option for owners this week but will have some value if he is active for the game. He could be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in leagues.
Posted: 1/17/2017 8:53pm ET
Huddle Up: Green is still in the NFL's concussion protocol, so this declaration seems more likely to occur than not at this point, especially given the former Charger's history with concussions. With Green probably remaining on the sidelines, Jesse James will slide back into the starting tight end spot and offer solid value for DFS lineups this weekend.
Posted: 1/17/2017 9:37am ET
Huddle Up: Green has been sidelined since Week 15, although Tomlin said he had a chance to play in the Divisional Round before ultimately being ruled out. Although Jesse James had a fine game last week, the Steelers could really use all hands on deck in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots after failing to score a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs. Owners should consider him highly questionable at best.
