Gates caught six passes on 10 targets for 81 yards. Green hauled in both his targets for 24 yards.
Green, 24, remains way behind starter Antonio Gates in terms of opportunities. Gates drew a game-high 10 targets and paced San Diego with six catches for 81 yards.
Green faces the Seahawks in Week 2.
In the 28 preseason snaps played by quarterback Philip Rivers, Gates played 26 and Green 13. In the dress rehearsal game, Gates caught all three of his targets for 28 yards and a touchdown. Green caught one of three targets for 5 yards.
Gates is 34, but he's healthy and in terrific shape. Until he breaks down, Green is not going to be playable in standard leagues.
The Chargers open the season Monday night in Arizona. It's a wonderful matchup, as the Cardinals allowed a league-high 13.3 Fantasy points per game to tight ends last year. Consider Gates a borderline TE1 for Week 1.
His first catch came on a short dump-off pass over the middle of the field where Green dwarfed Cowboys defenders. His second catch was an impressive leap near the sideline for 20 yards when Rivers found him on a broken play. Green will look for more numbers at the Seahawks on Aug. 15.
The report did note that while Green is an exciting player, Antonio Gates still figures to be the most targeted tight end on the roster. Gates is still a red-zone threat and can still beat single coverage in the middle of the field.
