Chargers signed TE Virgil Green, formerly of the Broncos.
Green has been a popular fantasy sleeper at various points in his career, but he never topped 25 catches, 250 yards, or one touchdown in seven seasons with the Broncos. With Hunter Henry firmly atop the Chargers' depth chart, Green's breakout is unlikely to come this season. Mar 14 - 4:08 PM

Virgil Green secured two-of-four targets for 13 yards Sunday in the Broncos’ Week 11 loss to the Bengals.

Playing in place of AJ Derby (who was waived/injured on Saturday) and Jeff Heuerman (knee), Green offered nothing as a pass-catcher, though he did open up lanes for C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker in the running game. He was actually out-snapped by Austin Traylor, who was promoted off the practice squad earlier in the week. Green won’t be a streaming option against the Raiders in Week 12.

Virgil Green caught his only target for 44 yards against the Chargers in Week 1.

He served as more of a blocker and his only target came on a deep ball. Green is likely going to lose targets to A.J. Derby and isn't on the fantasy radar in most leagues.

Virgil Green caught 3-of-4 targets for 17 yards and a touchdown Week 17 against the Raiders.

Green was left wide open on a play-action pass near the goal line, and Trevor Siemian found him in the back corner of the end zone for his first touchdown of the season and just the third of his career. Always hyped as a potential breakout player in the offseason, Green once again failed to live up to the billing, catching just 22 passes for 237 yards in 12 games and losing receiving work to mid-season addition A.J. Derby. The 28-year-old is a good real-life player who excels as a blocker, but it is unlikely he ever develops into a reliable fantasy asset.

Broncos TE Virgil Green is week to week with a concussion.

Green went down early in Denver's Week 15 loss to the Patriots. He has seven days to get cleared for Denver's Christmas day showdown with the Chiefs.

Virgil Green went catch-less on one target in Week 13.

He's been passed by AJ Derby as the Broncos' pass-catching tight end.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 05:29:00 PM

Virgil Green caught 2-of-6 targets for 24 yards in the Broncos' Week 10 win.

Ominously for Green, A.J. Derby posted an identical line on half the targets. Green will remain miles from relevance when the Broncos return from their bye in Week 12.
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 05:46:00 PM

Virgil Green caught 2-of-4 targets 37 yards in Week 9 against the Raiders.

Green has been more involved the last few weeks, but still isn't making an impact. He's not more than a touchdown-dependent streamer against the Saints in Week 10.
Mon, Nov 7, 2016 01:09:00 AM

Virgil Green caught 4-of-6 targets for 55 yards in the Broncos' Week 8 win over the Chargers.

Held catch-less in Week 7, Green rebounded to make an impact against the Chargers' pass-coverage-deficient linebacker corps. Although Green is a useful player in Denver's offense, he typically spends his time on the line of scrimmage blocking for the running backs. He would be a weak streamer investment in Week 9 against the Raiders.

Virgil Green wasn't targeted in the Broncos' Week 7 win over the Texans.

Green played roughly half the snaps, but did most of his work as a blocker. He's yet to see more than four targets in a game this season and isn't on the streaming radar at tight end ahead of a Week 8 date with the Chargers.
Tue, Oct 25, 2016 12:24:00 AM

Virgil Green caught 3-of-4 targets for 21 yards in the Broncos' Week 6 loss to the Chargers.

Trevor Siemian was checking down all evening, but looked his tight end's way just four times after he missed the past three games. Green is more of a TE3 than TE2 in an offense that has trouble supporting fantasy options beyond Emmanuel Sanders, Demaryius Thomas and the running game.

Virgil Green (calf) has been removed from the injury report and will play Week 6 against the Chargers.

The Chargers are allowing the 10th-most fantasy points to tight ends this season, but Green is a weak streamer who missed the previous three games.
Wed, Oct 12, 2016 03:16:00 PM

Virgil Green (calf) is expected to play Thursday night against the Chargers.

Green somewhat surprisingly sat out Sunday's game against the Falcons, but he should be ready to go this week after getting in a full practice Monday. It is an ugly week for tight-end streamers, but Green is tough to trust coming off a multi-week injury. Green had seven catches for 74 yards in the first two weeks.
Tue, Oct 11, 2016 09:17:00 AM

Virgil Green (calf) is inactive for Week 5 against the Falcons.

It is a surprise after Green got in three limited practices this week. Jeff Heuerman and John Phillips should once again share snaps in Green's place, but neither is a reliable fantasy option. Will Tye is a great replacement option. He plays against the Packers on Sunday Night Football.
Sun, Oct 9, 2016 02:38:00 PM

Virgil Green (calf) is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Falcons.

We're assuming Green will play based on his return to practice this week; beat writers have stated Green looked fine going through drills. Still, it's not a guarantee. Green is shaping up as a boom-bust Week 5 tight end streamer.
