Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking full reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 18. He’s still in the concussion protocol, so it doesn’t look like Green will make his return this week. Eli Rogers has been one of the beneficiaries of Green’s absence; he has averaged 4.1 catches for 49 yards and 0.22 TD (on 5.8 targets) in the nine games in which Green was either sidelined or played less than 20% of the snaps. In the other four games, Rogers has averaged 2.8 catches for 37 yards and 0.25 TD (on 3.5 T/G). Jesse James has averaged a modest 2.9 catches for 25 yards and 0.25 (on 4.3 T/G) with Green out or very limited. The Dolphins have been poor against both receivers (#28 in WR aFPA) and tight ends (#32 in TE aFPA).

Scouting Report

AFC Championship at New England
Rogers saw a healthy seven targets last week, but had just five catches for 27 yards. He also just missed on a touchdown catch in the game that would have given him a solid day. Rogers was benched earlier this season in the previous meeting against the Patriots for being late (who said Mike Tomlin doesn't have any discipline?). Rogers could be worth a flier in PPR leagues this week as a flex play or low-end No. 3 receiver.
