Week 8: vs San Diego Chargers

All TE vs SD

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Denver lost to San Diego in San Diego two weeks ago 13-21 - Trevor Siemian heaved the football an astonishing 50 times in that game, with 30/50 for 230 yards passing, but only one TD and zero interceptions thrown (he had two sacks taken for -10 yards). Bennie Fowler (seven targets for 3/22/1) hauled in the lone TD pass, while Emmanuel Sanders led the team in receiving with six targets for 4/40/0 receiving - all told, Siemian hit nine different targets that day. Since then, Siemian engineered a win over Houston with a modest 14/25 for 157 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions or sacks taken. Emmanuel Sanders was once again the leading receiver on the team (eight targets for 4/86/0 receiving), followed by Demaryius Thomas (10 for 6/40/1). Nobody else on the team had over 13 yards receiving last week as the Broncos emphasized the run (35 rushes vs. 25 passing attempts). The Chargers' defense handled Atlanta's high octane offense last weekend, and managed to slow down Matt Ryan a tad, allowing 22/34 for 256 net yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, with three sacks generated for -17 yards. To date, San Diego is 24th in the NFL averaging 276.3 net passing yards allowed per game, with 11 passing scores given out vs. eight interceptions and 17 sacks generated (fourth- and ninth-ranked in the NFL, respectively). From Week Five to Week Seven of the 2016 season (over the last three weeks), San Diego has averaged 19.1 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (12-least in the NFL); and 24.4 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (14th-most); with 4.5 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (ninth-least). This is a neutral matchup for Siemian and company.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 6 vs SD (4 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)

Green started at tight end for a the first time since injuring his calf a few weeks ago and had a quiet return with just 3 catches for 21 yards on 4 targets He drew his first target in the 3rd quarter while Siemian was scrambling away from Joey Bosa and several other defenders in his own end zone. He caught a short pass for minimal gain on a curl route in the 3rd quarter, and another short gain on a crossing route in the 4th. Green picked up a 1st down with reception on an out route during the Broncos' final drive of the game, and then another gain of 9 on an out route after the Broncos recovered an onside kick with seconds left in the game.

2016 Week 2 vs IND (3 / 3 / 46 / 0 rec)

After his first reception, Green used a nasty stiff-arm to spring himself free on an out route in the 2nd quarter, picking up 16 yards and a 1st down on 3rd and 8. Green picked up another big 3rd down conversion in the 3rd quarter down the left numbers. Green's third catch of the day was a big gain down the middle of the field late in the 4th quarter. Green lined up inline like a blocker and took off down the hash at the snap. Green caught all 3 of his targets, but didn't receive the volume that fantasy owners might have been hoping for with Demaryius Thomas supposedly hobbled by a hip injury coming into the game. Green injured his calf late in the game and was seen leaving the stadium in a walking boot. His status for next week is still unknown.

2016 Week 1 vs CAR (5 / 4 / 28 / 0 rec)

Green dominated tight end snaps and was featured in every offensive formation, working in-line occasionally flexing out to the slot. He caught his first target of the night on the sidelines as quarterback Siemian scrambled away from pressure. The play converted 3rd and 10. Green caught a curl route for a short gain in the third quarter, failing to convert a 3rd and long. Green caught a tight end screen for a short gain later in the third quarter, and made a great leaping catch in traffic on the next play to pick up the first down. Green took a hard hit on the catch and was replaced by John Phillips for a couple of plays while he recovered on the sidelines. He did re-enter the game and appeared fine after that.
