Summary

The Chargers have said this offseason that they want to get Ladarius Green more involved in the offense. They've been saying that for several years without following through, but this time they'll have to. Antonio Gates is suspended for the first four games, so Green will start those games in his place. If he plays well enough, he may never relinquish the starting role. Green has excellent speed and big-play ability for a tight end. The fact that he is a much better blocker than Antonio Gates has kept him from getting into the pattern on a regular basis, but he will get his chance this season. (July 2)

Latest News

Chargers | SD counting on more from Ladarius Green (Mon Aug 24, 07:41 PM) - San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green will be asked to do more in 2015, especially with TE Antonio Gates suspended for the first four games of the season. Green impressed in the team's preseason game over the weekend, moving the chains on third down and even looking like Gates during one play in which he used his size against a backup safety. He also had a key block later in the game to spring RB Branden Oliver for an 11-yard gain. Green will receive more snaps this year if he can continue to improve on his blocking, something that was a weakness last season.

Our View: Fantasy owners have been waiting for Green to emerge, and now is the time. It's not only the four-game suspension for Gates. The Chargers were hinting at a smaller role for Gates before word came in about his suspension. Green has to prove himself this year, or the team could move on in 2016.
