Broncos | Virgil Green expected to see more targets

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 11:47:04 -0700

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green is expected to receive more playing time this season and receive more targets than he has had in the past.

Fantasy Tip: Green has not had more than nine receptions in any season since he joined the NFL but should have a bigger role this season. Green probably should not be selected in drafts this season but could be a waiver wire option during the season.

Broncos | Denver tight ends to form platoon?

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 12:35:57 -0700

Denver Broncos TEs Owen Daniels and Virgil Green could both see enough snaps this season to be considered starters, according to Andrew Mason of denverbroncos.com.

Fantasy Tip: Green has been known throughout his career as more of a blocking tight end, while Daniels is viewed as more of a passing threat. Daniels has proven to be the better receiver. He holds more fantasy value in this offense and should be taken as a TE2.

Broncos | Virgil Green worked with star QB

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 19:53:56 -0700

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green worked out with QB Peyton Manning during his sessions at Duke University this offseason. It is another indication he could be ready to see starter-type snaps in the regular season, even with the addition of TE Owen Daniels.

Fantasy Tip: Green has generally been a blocker for most of his reps, but he is likely to factor more into the offense this season. Think Jacob Tamme's role from the past, and that will give you a sense of Green's fantasy appeal. Unless Daniels suffers a long-term injury, Green is still best left to the waiver wire in most leagues, although his role is increasing.

Broncos | Candidates to be re-signed

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 15:20:17 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent LB Nate Irving, C Will Montgomery and TEs Virgil Green and Jacob Tamme are priorities to be re-signed this offseason. However, Irving figures to test the free-agent market with LBs Danny Trevathan and Brandon Marshall set as inside linebackers. Green could take on a much bigger role if TE Julius Thomas leaves via free agency.

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.
