Green had a season-high six receptions on 11 targets for 110 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-14 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Mike Tomlin recently talked about Green having an increased role and that came to fruition Sunday, as the speedy TE easily had his best game as a Steeler. He'll look to keep it going next week at Buffalo.

Head coach Mike Tomlin said Monday that he expects Green to have an increased role in the offense going forward, Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter reports.

EDGE Analysis

In three forays to date, Green has received between eight and 14 offensive snaps, yet he's still recorded five receptions (on nine targets) for 97 yards. If he starts to chip away at Jesse James' much larger allotment of snaps, Green could begin to enter the fantasy conversation in a number of formats. Helping Green's cause this weekend is a matchup against the Giants, who have allowed 16.1 YPC and one touchdown to tight ends over the last four games.

Green caught two passes for 67 yards during Thursday's 28-7 win at Indianapolis.

EDGE Analysis

Green was targeted three times by Ben Roethlisberger, while Jesse James' only target came from Landry Jones on Pittsburgh's final play from scrimmage. Next up for the Steelers are the Giants and, if there is a weakness in their defense, it is that through 10 games they've allow opposing tight ends an average of 14.1 fantasy points per game (19.6 in PPR formats).

Green failed to catch either of his two targets in Pittsburgh's 24-9 win over Cleveland on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

In just his second game since coming off the PUP list, Green showed some signs of rust, dropping a ball in the end zone. Fantasy owners may want to take a wait-and-see approach before inserting Green in their lineup.

Green (knee) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Though Green reportedly experienced some swelling in his knee following his season debut last weekend, he's good to go this week after back-to-back full practice sessions. Green, who logged just 12 out of a possible 74 snaps on offense this past Sunday against the Cowboys, is a candidate to see added work in Steelers' Week 11 passing game, in his second game back this season.

Green (knee) practiced fully Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Though Chris Bradford of the Beaver County Times notes that Green had some swelling in his knee following his season debut, the tight end's return to a full practice Thursday puts him on track to play this weekend against the Browns. Assuming no addition issues with his knee before then, Green is a candidate to see added work in Week 11 after logging just 12 out of a possible 74 snaps on offense this past Sunday against the Cowboys.

Green (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Green, who was activated from the PUP list this past Saturday, was previously dealing with an ankle injury. He's now listed with a knee issue, but the fact that he was able to turn in a limited session Wednesday suggests that the tight end's Week 11 status is not in peril. We'll let you know if that assessment changes.

Green caught three of four targets for 30 yards in Pittsburgh's 35-30 loss to Dallas on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

After spending the first half of the season on the PUP list (ankle), Green made his Pittsburgh debut, and hauled in his first receptions of 2016. He'll look to build off this game in Week 11 against a Cleveland defense that has allowed opposing tight ends to score nine touchdowns in their past seven games.

Green (ankle) is expected to be worked into the Steelers' tight end mix in his anticipated season debut Sunday against the Cowboys, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Green is ready for game action, he acknowledges that he's not all the way back to 100 percent and with that in mind, coach Mike Tomlin notes that the tight end's snaps will be monitored out of the gate. While the Steelers could look to work Green in on passing downs Sunday, and possibly in red zone situations, until the tight end gets a full and productive game in, he'll be a speculative fantasy option.

Green (ankle) was activated from the PUP list on Saturday, Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Green practiced with the first-team for the first time this past week and appears ready to go for his debut on Sunday against the Cowboys. It's unclear how much time he'll see in his first game back but he figures to be the No. 1 option at tight end as long as he remains healthy.
