Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 15: Ladarius Green too risky to use

Donald Miralle

Ladarius Green has been a hot topic in fantasy circles. Should you start him in fantasy leagues on the short week?

San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has quite a few options to throw to, and it's led to some nice numbers on the season. Tight end Ladarius Green was picking up a lot of steam heading into Week 14, but he failed to catch a single ball against the New York Giants.

To make matters worse, he ran just five routes in the game and did not get a target. After four solid weeks in a row, Green took a back seat to Eddie Royal in the slot. Plus, the Giants were up big in this game, so they didn't have to pass much. In fact, Rivers' 28 attempts were his lowest total since Week 3.

Fantasy impact: There are just too many things wrong with Ladarius this week. The Chargers expecting to have all of their offensive weapons ready and going on a short week never helps any player's case as a start. He's a risky, low-end TE2 guy to use in deeper formats this week, even though the game could be a shootout.
