|And the offseason all-star award goes to Sammie Coates! It seems that on a weekly basis a coach, beat writer, or teammate is talking up the second-year receiver from Auburn. Is the hype warranted for a player who showed up out of shape last season, and languished on the bench all year and only totaled 1 catch in the regular season? This is an important question fantasy owners have to ask themselves going into the 2016 season. On most offenses a player like Coates doesn’t warrant much thought or discussion. But on a high powered offense like Pittsburgh who just lost a big piece of the passing game for the season, Coates’ role needs to be examined. While Coates has little pro tape, and a short unassuming college resume, he offers a ridiculous combination of size (6’1, 212) and speed (4.4). The offseason reports of his dedication and preparation have been stellar, but there was a ton of hype surrounding teammate Markus Wheaton two off-seasons ago and he failed to live up to it. I really like Coates as a late round flyer with upside.
| Ladarius Green close to return|
Practiced on Wednesday

|Tight end Ladarius Green, who missed the final two games of the regular season with a concussion, is one step closer to being cleared to return for the playoffs after going through a full practice with the rest of his Steelers teammates Wednesday. (Pittsburgh Post Gazette)|
FFToday'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.
