With Gates out, Ladarius Green plays big for Bolts
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Chargers were without the services of tight end Antonio Gates on Thursday night against the Cowboys, giving Ladarius Green an opportunity to show off what he could do. Green came through with flying colors, catching two of four completions by Philip Rivers for 26 total yards.

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.

Ladarius Green continues to develop, but ...
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Chargers third-year tight end Ladarius Green has "taken another step in his development" this offseason and it's shown on the practice fields, ESPN reported. Green already displayed some game-breaking ability last season with the Bolts, racking up nine plays of 20-plus yards over 17 catches. 

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.

Coaches believe Ladarius Green can be 'an impact player'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chargers coaches believe tight end Ladarius Green "has the size, speed, reach and athleticism to be an impact player, especially if he gets the right matchups," reports Bleacher Report's Dan Pompei. Green "showed some flashes" in minicamp, and the team will involve the third-year pro more this season, the report said.

Green (6-6, 240) caught 17 passes for 376 yards and three touchdowns playing behind Antonio Gates last year.

While Gates is away, Ladarius Green gets first-team reps
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

With Chargers All Pro tight end Antonio Gates tending to a personal matter and missing minicamp this week, third-year tight end Ladarius Green is getting reps with the first-team offense. According to the Union-Tribune of San Diego, it's working out well for Green, who scored a 15-yard touchdown during two-minute drills on Tuesday

McCoy regrets not using Ladarius Green more in 2013
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Chargers coach Mike McCoy said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings that he wished he used tight end Ladarius Green more in 2013.

Green finished his second year with 17 catches for 376 yards and three touchdowns, but the majority of that production came during the final seven games of the year.

"What happened with him last year he made the most of his opportunities," McCoy said. "Early in the year, they were limited. As time went along, and as an offense, you always evolve to what your players do best. Being together for the first time, there were some things we were still learning about our team. It takes time. And Ladarius made the most of his opportunities. When he was in at the right time, he was continuing to make plays. You wish you would have done that a little earlier."

McCoy said he plans to use Green in tandem with Antonio Gates again in 2014.
