Green was Colin Kaepernick's primary receiver at Nevada and his combine results were among the best we've seen from tight ends in recent memory. Green earned his stripes in Denver as a blocker behind Julius Thomas. Owen Daniels has a history of injuries and Gary Kubiak's offense loves two-tight end sets. Green is a nice late-round desperation pick if you miss on tight ends during the first 12 rounds of a draft or a priority waiver acquisition if he's on your waiver wire.

Summary

Green was known more for his blocking during his stint in Denver under a rookie contract, but they re-signed him this year with a very TE friendly offensive head coach - Gary Kubiak - taking the reins. Old Kubiak hand Owen Daniels is also in town and the #1 fantasy tight end, but Green has some great athletic ability to harness if the Broncos call on him as a receiver. He could be relevant by the end of the season and Green should be on your waiver wire watch list. (May 22)

Latest News

Broncos | Virgil Green to be eased in (Thu Jul 30, 08:14 PM) - Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green (hamstring) will be eased in slowly during training camp, as a precaution for the hamstring issues that slowed him down during minicamp.

Our View: Green is one of the best blocking tight ends in the league. The Broncos have a ton of question marks on the offensive line, so having Green up front to help block would be a great benefit.

Broncos | Virgil Green expected to see more targets (Wed Jul 22, 02:47 PM) - Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green is expected to receive more playing time this season and receive more targets than he has had in the past.

Our View: Green should post career-best numbers this year, but that's an easy prediction since Green only has 23 catches in his four-year career. He's an underrated receiver, but Green is a fantastic blocker. With so many question marks on the offensive line, Green may stay in to block more than those calling him a "sleeper fantasy tight end" would think.
