Chargers' Virgil Green: Catches first touchdown as member of Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green caught his only target for a 13-yard touchdown in Sunday's 26-10 win over the Raiders.

Green did leave the game in the second quarter due to a rib injury, but the veteran tight end was able to make his return to the field, capitalizing on a screen pass near the goal-line to score his first touchdown as a Charger. As usual, Green (72 percent) outsnapped Antonio Gates (36 percent), but that didn't amount to much for either player, as the tight ends combined to receive just three targets.

Chargers' Virgil Green: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Raiders due to a ribs injury.

Green exited Sunday's game during the second quarter. If the second-string tight end is unable to return to the field, expect an update on his health after the conclusion of the Week 5 contest.

Chargers' Virgil Green: Catches two passes in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green caught both of his targets for nine yards in Sunday's 29-27 win over the 49ers.

Once again it was Antonio Gates who saw the majority of the receiving role at the expense of Green as the veteran tight end snagged a first-quarter red zone touchdown. Green continues to see the field (74 percent offensive snaps on Sunday), but that hasn't translated to any sort of statistical success thanks to the plethora of weapons available in Los Angeles.

Chargers' Virgil Green: Hardly utilized Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green caught his only target for six yards in Sunday's 35-23 loss to the Rams.

It's clear at this point that Green's role on offense is blocker first, safety-net second. Despite playing in 63 percent of the team's offensive snaps, Green could only muster a single target as the Chargers struggled to grapple with the Rams' litany of defensive stalwarts. While Antonio Gates saw fewer snaps (22) than Green, he parlayed his limited time on the field into three catches for 45 yards, further cementing the latter's status as the primary blocker.

Chargers' Virgil Green: Nearly sets career high in receiving yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green caught all three of his targets for 55 yards in the 31-20 victory over the Bills on Sunday.

Green has caught 55 or more yards just two other times in his career, so it's safe to say the blocking tight end has been able to flex his receiving muscles a little more in Los Angeles. While the eighth-year veteran has a modest 76 receiving yards through two games this year, he's already approaching his career high in receiving yards (237), which he set in 2016. More importantly, Green drastically out-snapped Antonio Gates, 42 to 11, suggesting the Broncos transplant seems to be fitting in nicely with the Chargers. That being said, the sheer amount of potential weapons on offense for quarterback Philip Rivers to target makes Green an unreliable fantasy option in most leagues.
