2015 Week 4 vs CLE (6 / 4 / 53 / 1 rec)
Green missed last week's game with a concussion, but was a surprise active this time around. As usual, Green looked very Antonio Gates-like in all of his routes and actions. He even found the end zone once again by going high over the defender whose hands were in his face. Green skied in the air and showed terrific hands in coming down with the floater for the touchdown, and he chose a nice time to have a big performance with Gates set to return from his suspension next week. It wasn't all good for Green, as there was some miscommuncation between he and Rivers on a first half pass. Green took off for the end zone when Rivers expected him to break out towards the sideline, and Green heard about it from his quarterback afterwards. But clearly that didn't shake Rivers' confidence in the young tight end, first with the touchdown pass and later with a 17-yard crossing route on the eventual game-winning field goal drive.
2015 Week 2 vs CIN (6 / 5 / 47 / 0 rec)
Green continues to look like a young Antonio Gates clone, as the team has retained the same offense and seemingly the same route maps for Green to run as they used for Gates. The youngster showed nice hands in snagging a floater over the top of the defense, and used a Gates-like pivot move to get open soon after. He finished the first half with four receptions, and was on his way to a seemingly huge game. But in the second half, Cincinnati put the clamps on and added a second defender to cover him, and he was effectively removed from the game by that. Unfortunately for San Diego, nobody else was really able to take advantage of the extra attention being paid to Green, so it remains to be seen if this is a blueprint that others will be able to follow to stifle San Diego's passing game moving forward.
2015 Week 1 vs DET (6 / 5 / 74 / 1 rec)
As of a few days ago, Green was looking very questionable to even play this game. He suffered a concussion last week, and didn't look like he'd be ready to roll. But he improved enough to suit up, and it was quite a performance. For a guy who needs to take advantage of the Antonio Gates suspension for the first four weeks, this was certainly a performance that qualifies as a breakout. He looked very Gates-esque in hauling in receptions on crossing routes over the middle of the field. There are just so many weapons on the Chargers that it's difficult to keep track of Green at all times. He showed good speed, and a lot of strength in brushing off tacklers like it was nothing. Late in the contest, he snagged a pass over the middle and waltzed into the end zone for his first score of the season. With Gates returning in Week 5, it will be interesting to see how the team divvies up the tight end workload if Green continues to look this good.
Latest NewsChargers | Ladarius Green expected to have role (Mon Oct 5, 05:54 PM) - San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green has played well early in the season and should continue to have a role in the offense even though TE Antonio Gates is receiving from his suspension, according to QB Philip Rivers. Our View: That was also the word before the news about Gates' suspension was announced. Gates had said earlier this year that his role would be smaller in 2015. We'll see if Green can maintain his fantasy value even with Gates back. After four weeks, Green has scored the 10th-most fantasy points of tight ends in PPR leagues.
link to story Chargers | Ladarius Green will play (Sun Oct 4, 02:41 PM) - San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) is officially active for the Week 4 game against the Cleveland Browns. Our View: Green has only missed one game despite two concussions already this year. Whatever fantasy value he has left will shrink when Antonio Gates returns next week.
link to story Chargers | Ladarius Green questionable (Fri Oct 2, 04:20 PM) - San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 2, but is listed as questionable for Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns. Our View: There's no word yet whether he has been cleared after his second concussion this year, but this is a good sign.
link to story Chargers | Ladarius Green limited Thursday (Thu Oct 1, 04:51 PM) - San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 1. Our View: Keep an eye on John Phillips as a low-end TE2 if Green is out. Green himself had a great first week and then the wheels came off. We'd have him as a decent TE2 if he played this week.
link to story Chargers | Ladarius Green a limited participant (Wed Sep 30, 04:55 PM) - San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 30. Our View: We're a week away from the return of Antonio Gates from suspension. If Green can't play or is limited, John Phillips could get a few more targets.
