News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): To be fair, the Chargers only possessed the ball for 21 minutes against the Chiefs, but coming off of a 4-60 effort, we hoped he was going to be a more consistent part of the offense. Green's value hasn't crawled up being worth rostering outside of dynasty leagues yet this year.

General News (Tue Oct 21): hasn't seen his role expand this year after head coach Mike McCoy expected him to earn a much bigger role in the offense in the offseason. Green wasn't thrown to at all in Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs after being featured extensively against them last year.

Week 8: at Denver Broncos

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. This is a crucial AFC West showdown between two of the hottest offenses in the NFL - it should be an exciting, fast-paced game under the Thursday Night lights in Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium tomorrow. Philip Rivers had a tepid game against the Chiefs last week, with 17/31 for 205 yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown (while taking two sacks for -23 yards). His tight ends handled both TDs, with five targets for 3/61/1 going to Antonio Gates and one target for 1/1/1 landing in John Phillips' arms. Keenan Allen (10 targets for 6/58/0) and Malcom Floyd (seven for 3/50/0) led the Chargers' wide receiving corps last week. The Broncos' pass D is ranked 18th in the NFL averaging 242.5 net yards allowed per game, with nine passing scores given up vs. five interceptions (17th in the NFL) and 21 sacks (tied for third in the league) generated so far this year. San Diego has allowed just 11 sacks (tied for eighth in the NFL), but Rivers will see significant pass pressure from the hard-charging Broncos at home in deafening Mile High Stadium this Thursday night. Last week, Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert attempted 27/46 for 248 net yards, two TDs and one interception at Mile High, while being sacked six times for -53 yards. Geno Smith was sacked four times for -17 yards two weeks back (23/43 for 173 net yards, two TDs and one interception thrown). This is a divisional game at partisan Mile High Stadium - it is a neutral matchup for the visiting Chargers who will be in a fast-paced duel between Rivers and Peyton Manning.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs NYJ (1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

Officially, Green caught just one ball in the game. That one reception was very impressive, as he caught a short pass in the flat and then literally dragged the defender on his back for another five yards. But he had earlier caught what looked to be a very impressive touchdown over the middle. He leapt over the top of the defense and simply snatched the ball out of the air away from three defenders. Unfortunately for Green, the play was negated by an offensive holding penalty.

2014 Week 6 vs OAK (5 / 4 / 60 / 0 rec)

Nearly half of Green's receiving yardage came on his first catch of the game, a crossing route that gained 27 yards. Most of his damage was done over the middle rather than on deep routes, but his ability to pick up yardage after the catch means he can turn even the smallest pickup into a big gain.
