Green was undone by a series of poor circumstances -- Eddie Royal returned from a toe injury, and the Chargers had the game well in hand against the Giants, leading to a run-heavy strategy. While owners are abandoning Green in bunches, he still has some value in deeper leagues. Green has two touchdowns in his last three, and two games with 80 or more yards in his last four.
This isn't a call to start Green and expect 80 yards, but to at least consider who is getting picked up in his stead. The Broncos, Green's Thursday night opponent, gave up touchdowns in three consecutive games before Week 14, and that streak may have gone to four had Delanie Walker been healthy.
Green is a low-end, risky option in most formats. And while he can be dropped in shallower leagues, he's shown enough skill to be used in deeper (18-etam) formats against Denver.
In the running game,
Philip Rivers hooked up with Green up the middle for a 30-yard score in the second quarter. He was targeted six times and finished the game with two receptions for 45 yards and a touchdown in a 17-10 defeat.
Green has five catches for 125 yards and two touchdowns over his last two games. He'll look to stay productive heading into Week 14 at home against the Giants.
