Green failed to reel in his only target during Sunday's 45-10 win over Arizona.
Green came into Sunday on a relative streak given his block-first reputation, catching two passes in three consecutive games. Sunday marked Green's third catchless outing of the season. Despite being known for his athleticism as a receiver in college, Green was always more effective in the run-blocking and pass-protection sectors in Denver, and that hasn't changed much in L.A. Sunday brings a visit to Pittsburgh's top-10 pass defense.
Green caught two of his four targets for 27 yards Sunday during the 23-22 loss to the Broncos.
Antonio Gates was surprisingly dominant Sunday, tallying five receptions, 80 yards and a touchdown across just 27 snaps. That should just reinforce the notion that Green is merely second fiddle in terms of a receiving threat from the tight end position, as the veteran appeared in 68 percent of the team's snaps, but saw the fourth fewest targets of any Chargers pass catcher.
Green caught two of his three targets for 30 yards in the 20-6 win over the Raiders on Sunday.
Green has been utilized a bit more frequently as of late, recording a catch of 10 or more yards in back-to-back weeks. Of course, 58 receiving yards during that stretch isn't anything to write home about, but it's encouraging to see the veteran receive at least some semblance of targets after recording just two targets from Weeks 5-8. A return to Denver, where he played the first seven years of his career, likely doesn't make Green an attractive fantasy option next week.
Green caught two of his three targets for 28 yards in the 25-17 win over the Seahawks.
Sunday was actually one of Green's better games, as the veteran tight end had been held without a catch in each of the previous two games. Green and Antonio Gates have rarely been factors despite the Chargers' high-scoring offense and remain low-end fantasy options even in deep leagues.
Green failed to catch his only target in the 20-19 win over the Titans in London.
Green was hampered by an injury to his ribs earlier last week, but the veteran tight end appeared to leave Sunday's contest without further damage. That's about the only good news for fantasy owners who utilized Green, as the 30-year-old failed to record a catch for the second straight game. Even if he's fully healthy, Green is rarely utilized on offense and has seen more than one target in just three games this season.
