There were better potential landing spots, but this is still great news for his fantasy stock. He'll compete to be the third option in the passing game behind Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant. In 13 career games where he's seen at least five targets, he has averaged 3.5 catches for 52 yards and 0.38 TD, which are solid TE1 numbers in both standard and PPR formats. He's not guaranteed at least five targets per game, but the now-retired Heath Miller saw at least five passes come his way in 17 of his last 32 regular season games and his skills were diminishing. Green has the speed to threaten the seam and will see single coverage with Brown and Bryant drawing most of the attention of the defense.
