Summary

Green had a career-high last year with 12 catches. He's a better receiver than his numbers indicate, and this may finally be the year that Green gets used the right way. He came out of Nevada in the 2011 NFL draft known as a great receiver and a work-in-progress as a blocker. Green has worked hard to become one of the best blocking TEs in the game today. With Owen Daniels released earlier this year, the Broncos could be turning to Green more than ever in 2016. We'll see if Green can beat out Jeff Heuerman for the starting TE spot in 2016. Green is currently recovering from finger surgery and will miss most of OTAs according to head coach Gary Kubiak. (May 25)

Broncos | Virgil Green had surgery (Tue May 24, 03:40 PM) - Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green (finger) had surgery on his finger and will miss most of organized team activities, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Our View: An interesting tidbit revealed today after practice. Green has been an underused receiver to this point in his pro career. A seventh-round pick in 2011, Green had a career-high 12 catches in 2015. This surgery is going to give second-year TE Jeff Heuerman a chance to emerge in the TE-friendly Kubiak system.

Broncos | Virgil Green wants to prove himself (Mon May 16, 02:47 PM) - Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green said he wants to prove in training camp that he can be an every-down tight end. It was reported earlier that Green could have a bigger role in 2016.

Our View: Green is a better receiver than his career-high 12 receptions in 2016 shows. He was a reliable receiver for Colin Kaepernick in college at Nevada, but the Broncos have turned him into a strong blocking TE instead. Now, Green may be the lead TE for the Broncos in 2016 with only second-year TE Jeff Heuerman as his main competition. From a fantasy lens, we could see Green as a low-end TE2 if his production matches what Owen Daniels was able to get last year.

Broncos | Bigger role for Virgil Green? (Mon May 16, 02:08 PM) - Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green could see more opportunities in 2016 after a career-high 12 catches last season, according to Mike Klis of 9news.com.

Our View: Good! The Broncos finally need to use Green as a receiver after utilizing him for years as a blocker. Green is an underrated receiver who could be featured in the Gary Kubiak TE-friendly offense.
