Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 20 vs NE (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Green was on the field for 32 percent of the Broncos offensive snaps, mostly as a blocker. He was targeted just one time and did not make the catch.
2015 Week 8 vs GB (3 / 3 / 61 / 0 rec)
Ordinarily a blocking specialist averaging about 6 routes a game, Virgil Green saw his passing-game usage nearly doubled against the Green Bay Packers. "Nearly doubled" still left Green running just 12 routes, or just more than 1/3rd of Denver's passing plays, but Green made them count, catching three passes and finishing second on the team with 61 receiving yards. It remains to be seen whether his increased usage was the beginning of a meaningful trend, or merely a one-game aberration based on favorable matchups.
2015 Week 3 vs DET (1 / 1 / 26 / 0 rec)
With Denver backing away from its run-heavy gameplans and shifting back to a shotgun-heavy approach, blocking specialist Virgil Green played on less than a quarter of Denver's 65 offensive snaps. He made the most of his lone target, breaking two tackles on a screen pass and rumbling 26 yards to set Denver up with first-and-goal from the two. Despite athleticism that jumps off the screen at times, though, Virgil Green will have difficulty achieving any fantasy value as long as he can't even get on the field.
2015 Week 2 vs KC (3 / 2 / 12 / 1 rec)
Despite scoring a touchdown, Virgil Green was barely a factor in Denver's offensive game plan. He only saw two other targets on the day, one time serving as an outlet on 2nd-and-short, and one time being overthrown on a crossing route in the red zone. Green functions primarily as a blocker for Denver, and will continue to receive targets inconsistently at best going forward.
