WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green (ankle) will miss several weeks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Green is dealing with a lateral ankle sprain, but the X-Rays came back negative, which is a great sign considering how badly the ankle turned on his touchdown catch yesterday. Donald Parham should see more snaps behind Hunter Henry until the veteran returns.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green (groin) is out for the rest of today's game.

Green didn't have any receptions before leaving. The Chargers are thin at tight end, so hopefully this doesn't keep Green out for much longer than today.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green scores in playoff loss to he Patriots.

Green caught one pass for one yard and a touchdown, scoring on a corner route where he snuck free off a play-action fake. Green is mostly used as a blocker, so he's not on the fantasy radar entering the offseason. He's a better real-life contributor than fantasy asset.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green catches one pass in the Chargers' playoff victory.

Green gained eight yards on his lone Wild Card Round reception, but he lost a fumble on the play. Thankfully, it didn't cost him and his team, so Green should certainly ensure he takes care of the ball in next weekend's Divisional Round against New England.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green catches two passes against Ravens.

Green gained 12 yards on his two receptions in the Chargers' Week 16 loss. Green is not a highly-recommended fantasy option to conclude the regular season next week against the Broncos.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green catches two passes for nine yards in Week 15 win.

Green was targeted three times, but he mostly worked as a blocker with Antonio Gates (4/54) going for his second highest yardage total of the season. The veteran isn't a recommended fantasy option.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green held without a catch in Week 12 win.

Green will make some plays for the Chargers, but he's not a recommended fantasy option on an offense that runs through the backs and receivers.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green caught two passes for 27 yards in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

Green had a big first down late in the game for one of grabs, but Los Angeles wasn't able to hold on in a 23-22 defeat. The veteran isn't a recommended fantasy option heading into next week's game against the Cardinals.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green caught two passes for 30 yards in Sunday's win over the Raiders.

Green was involved as a receiver for the second week in a row, but he hasn't cleared 30 yards since Week 2. The 30-year-old isn't a recommended fantasy option.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green catches two passes against the Seahawks.

Green gained 28 yards on his two receptions in the Chargers' Week 9 win. Green is more of a real-life asset than he is a fantasy option right now.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green doesn't catch a pass in Week 7.

Green was targeted on a throw to the end zone, but it was basically a throwaway from Philip Rivers. Green is an excellent and willing blocker for the Chargers, but he is a much more valuable member for the Chargers real life than he is in fantasy.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green scores in Week 5 victory.

Green caught a 13-yard score in the second half of a 26-10 win for his only reception of the game. The veteran wouldn't be worth considering most weeks behind Antonio Gates, but Green is someone to keep in mind for a home-run matchup against the Browns next Sunday.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green catches both targets in Week 4.

Green gained nine yards on his two receptions against San Francisco. Green continues to split work with Antonio Gates and is not a recommended fantasy option.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green caught one pass in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

It went for six yards. Green isn't a fantasy option behind Antonio Gates, especially next week against the 49ers.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green caught three passes for 55 yards in Sunday's win over the Bills.

Green was the only tight end to catch a pass in the game, which ended up 31-20 but wasn't as close as the score indicates. Look for Antonio Gates to be more involved as soon as Week 3 against the Rams, leaving Green with limited fantasy value in a great matchup.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green catches two passes in team debut.

They went for 21 yards. The veteran tight end will probably be less involved as a receiver once Antonio Gates works his way back into a full compliment of snaps. Green isn't a fantasy option.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green and Philip Rivers are "finding their groove."

Rivers said the connection with his starting tight end "is growing," and Green says he thinks it's "going great." Green was used primarily as a blocker in his seven seasons with the Broncos, catching 71 passes for 807 yards and four touchdowns (one in each of the last four seasons), but he's presumably going to have a much larger role as a receiver with the Chargers. There's been talk of Antonio Gates potentially returning to the team, but the future Hall of Famer remains unsigned. With Hunter Henry (knee) out for the year, Green has TE1 upside if he's the clear top tight end for Rivers.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

The Chargers are signing Virgil Green, according to Ian Rapoport.

Green spent the first seven seasons of his career in Denver, and he will now join the rival Chargers. He will slide in behind Hunter Henry as a very good blocking tight end, and this could mean the end of Antonio Gates' time with the franchise. Don't expect Green to have much fantasy value in Los Angeles, but he's a solid real-life addition.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green caught one pass for six yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Green started all 16 games for the first time in his seven-year career, but he finished with just a 14/191/1 receiving line. The 29-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he returns to Denver. He probably won't have fantasy value in 2018.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green catches 36-yard pass in Week 13 loss.

It was his only reception of the game. Green isn't a fantasy option for the 3-9 Broncos.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green catches one pass against Oakland.

Green gained 16 yards on his lone reception. Maybe if his role was bigger Green would be a viable fantasy option, but he's not getting enough targets to be rostered right now.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green caught two passes for 13 yards in Sunday's loss to Cincinnati.

The veteran tight end isn't a fantasy option with just 11 receptions on the season. Denver travels to Oakland next week.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green catches one pass in Week 8.

Green took his lone reception against the Chiefs for 16 yards. Though he is a good player, Green doesn't get enough work to be on the fantasy radar.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green catches one pass in loss to the Giants.

It went for 24 yards. Green isn't a fantasy option as he splits playing time with two other capable tight ends.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green caught three passes for 18 yards in Sunday's loss to Buffalo.

Green had a 44-yard reception in Week 1 and a touchdown in Week 2, but he's not a fantasy option. The Broncos host the rival Raiders in Week 4.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green scores in Broncos' win.

Green caught two passes for 11 yards and a touchdown as Denver dominated the Cowboys. The touchdown from two yards out. Green can remain on the waiver wire in fantasy leagues.

Virgil Green catches first touchdown of the season in win.

Green caught three passes for 17 yards and a touchdown as the Broncos topped the Raiders. He finishes the season with 22 catches for 237 yards and one touchdown. A.J. Derby should open 2017 as the starting tight end for Denver; Green isn't a fantasy option.

Virgil Green | Chargers TE

Virgil Green caught two passes for 24 yards in Denver's win over the Saints.

Green will likely continue to lose work to recently-acquired A.J. Derby, who caught 2 passes for 22 yards. Either way, he can stay on the waiver wire as the Broncos head into their Week 11 bye.
