Broncos | Virgil Green continues to play

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 14:21:23 -0800

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green continued to lead the team's tight ends in snaps with 50 in Week 15 against the San Diego Chargers, even with TE Julius Thomas (ankle) back on the field. Thomas played just 29 snaps in his first game back from injury. OT Chris Clark also lined up as an extra tight end for seven snaps in the team's first two possessions. TE Dominique Jones played four snaps at tight end.

Fantasy Tip: Green's excellent run-blocking ability has led to his increased playing time, as well as Thomas' injury. Thomas ($6,500) should start to see more snaps as he gets closer to 100 percent health, though. Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals may not be the time to put full trust back in Thomas, though, as the Bengals have held tight ends to an average of just 3.48 fantasy points in the last four weeks.

Broncos | Virgil Green key to running game

Tue, 02 Dec 2014 09:58:17 -0800

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green has helped the team rush for 201 and 214 yards, respectively, in the last two games with TE Julius Thomas (ankle) out with an injury. Green has also been absent for all three of the team's losses this season because of injury. "A lot of people are saying I'm the magic potion, but it's all of us," Green said. "We decided to come to a resolve to do what we have to do to win games. If that means running the ball, then we have to do that. If it means passing, we'll do that. We're just trying to do what we can to win games." Thomas can be an effective backside blocker, but Green is better at the point of attack and at setting the edge. Thomas is expected to be eased back into his role when he returns from injury, but there is room for both of these tight ends in the offense moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: The running game has become paramount in Denver's offense now, making Green much more important. He's not an option for FantasyScore lineups, however. Thomas is clearly the better pass catcher and offensive weapon, but be careful of spending the $7,200 on him if he returns to face the Buffalo Bills this weekend, especially if the Broncos plan to ease Thomas back in in a rotation with Green.
