Week 3: at Los Angeles Rams

All TE vs LAR

FBG says: Bad matchup. Phillip Rivers and the Chargers passing game are off to another solid start in 2018. The Chargers should get Travis Benjamin back this week after he missed last week, and that provides a nice increase to the Chargers who utilize Benjamin more of a decoy than as a receiving target as if you don't respect his speed they will throw the ball to the deep threat. Keenan Allen continues to be the focus of this offense, but after that the Chargers have shown that they will target whoever is open as Rivers does a tremendous job spreading the ball around whether it is to the pair of running backs in Austin Ekeler (8 receptions) and Melvin Gordon (15 receptions) or to the secondary receivers in Mike Williams and Tyrell Williams. One thing to watch is that Virgil Green got 74% of the snaps last week where Antonio Gates had just 19% of the snaps. This is something intriguing as Green has always had talent and now has 5 receptions in his first two games this year. Simply put, this is a secondary that you want to avoid. While they have not faced the best offenses in football so far this season, the secondary led by Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib leaves very little options for quarterbacks on where to throw the ball. Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib have only allowed 37 total yards when they have been targeted which through two weeks is simply amazing. This is a unit that combined with one of the better slot corners in football in Nickell Robey-Coleman is one that you just want to avoid targeting against as it has a chance to be one of the best in a very long time.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs BUF (3 / 3 / 55 / 0 rec)

Even with Antonio Gates in the fold, it was Green who has been the primary pass-catching tight end for the Chargers through two games. He was hit perfectly in stride for an early 25-yard reception. They teamed up to beat the blitz, and Green broke a tackle about ten yards into the catch before rumbling upfield for 15 more after the catch. He made another wide open grab later in the first half, fighting his way downfield and pushing past would-be tacklers on his way to another nice gain. In the second half, he added another nice grab where he withstood a big hit from the defender before eventually fumbling the ball. Fortunately for Green, his elbow was touching the sideline while he fumbled, so it was ruled a dead ball at that spot, otherwise it would have gone for a turnover. Green was involved in another near-turnover earlier in the second half. Rivers had a pass tipped at the line and shoot straight up in the air. With several defenders around it, Green boxed them out and got his hands on it. He wasn't able to hold on and complete the reception, but he at least prevented anyone else from picking it off.

2018 Week 1 vs KC (2 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)

Green caught a sharp bullet pass over the middle for a first down early on, but once Antonio Gates came in the game Green's involvement was minimal. He caught just one more ass all game (Gates himself caught just two for the game), but it doesn't appear as if Green will have a very prominent role going forward.
