Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 17 vs KC (1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Green flexed out to the left slot and caught a quick curl route for 6 yards in the 3rd quarter, his only target of the day. Green finished the season with 14 catches as Denver continues to not place much emphasis on tight ends in the passing game.
2017 Week 15 vs IND (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Green started but was not very involved in the passing game. He was targeted once on a short out route at the end of the first half.
2017 Week 13 vs MIA (1 / 1 / 36 / 0 rec)
Green saw plenty of snaps but was not very involved in the passing game. He secured his only target on a play action pass, lining up with his hand in the dirt and taking off on a deep cross route for a catch-and-run of 36 yards in the 1st.
2017 Week 12 vs OAK (3 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
Green was the target on Lynch's 2nd quarter interception. He blocked a moment and then released into the flat as Lynch faked a handoff and rolled out left on a bootleg from the 1 yard line. Lynch's pass was ill-advised as Green was well covered, and a defender slapped it away, where it deflected off another defender before landing in the arms of a third laying on his back in the end zone. Green was overthrown by Siemian early in the 4th quarter on an out route, but the two connected on the next play for a big gain up the right seam, Green's only catch of the day.
2017 Week 11 vs CIN (4 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)
Green failed to capitalize on the absence of tight ends Derby and Heuerman, with recently promoted Austin Traylor doing the majority of the pass-catching from the tight end position. Green let an easy catch bounce off his chest in the 2nd quarter. Oweiler hit him on a short curl route from the left inline position in the 3rd quarter for a gain of 8, then a crossing route later in the 4th for another short gain.
2017 Week 9 vs PHI (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Green was active but uninvolved in the passing game. He was not targeted.
2017 Week 8 vs KC (2 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
Green hauled in a shallow out early in the 2nd quarter and turned it up the sideline for a big gain. He flat-out dropped an easy catch for a big gain later in the 2nd, his only other target of the day.
2017 Week 7 vs LAC (2 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Green moved around the formation some, flexing out into the slot and even out wide on a few snaps, but he only drew 2 targets, collecting a short curl route in the 3rd quarter. Green got open down the right sideline on an out-and-up route shortly after, but he bobbled the pass and nearly had it intercepted after it clanged off his hands.
2017 Week 6 vs NYG (1 / 1 / 24 / 0 rec)
Green hauled in his only target of the day, a seam route late in the 2nd quarter from the inline position. Derby seems to be the preferred pass-catching target, flexing out into the slot more often while Green and Heuerman do more of the in-line blocking.
2017 Week 4 vs OAK (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Green was active, but a complete non-factor in the passing game as AJ Derby drew all the tight end targets.
2017 Week 3 vs BUF (3 / 3 / 18 / 0 rec)
Green caught a tight end screen on the first offensive play of the game, but the play was negated by a penalty. He secured another short gain on an out route at the end of the 2nd quarter. Siemian threw an absolute dime to Green in the 3rd quarter on a crossing route for a gain of 14.
2017 Week 2 vs DAL (3 / 2 / 11 / 1 rec)
Siemian looked for Green in the end zone in the 2nd quarter, but a defender batted the pass away. Green got wide open for a short touchdown pass in the 3rd quarter. With the ball on Dallas' 2 yard line, Denver lined up in a run formation with 2 tight ends and a fullback. Siemian faked a handoff and made an easy toss to Green, who had run into the flat on the right side of the field. Green finished the day with just 2 catches for 11 yards and the touchdown on 3 targets.
2017 Week 1 vs LAC (1 / 1 / 44 / 0 rec)
Green made the most of his lone target of the night, hauling it in for a 44 yard gain down the right seam in the 4th quarter. Green turned around while sprinting full speed in the other direction and deftly plucked the football over the defender's head. Green has great athleticism, he just never seems to be a featured part of Denver's passing attack.
