2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
After seven mostly fantasy-irrelevant seasons in Denver, Virgil Green stayed in the AFC West but headed to Los Angeles this off season to join the Chargers. Green presumably was brought in to replace the roster spot vacated by future Hall of Famer Antonio Gates, but he was never really a threat to take significant playing time from Hunter Henry. Then, Henry suffered the first major season-ending injury of 2018, leaving a gigantic void for the Chargers at a position that they had previously been considered one of the league's best at.

Green was one of the league's best athletes at the tight end position when he was drafted and he still possesses some explosiveness, but in a world of Travis Kelces, Rob Gronkowskis, David Njokus and George Kittles, a 30-year-old Green just doesn't jump off the page anymore. Not to mention, he's done nothing to inspire confidence in him even when he's had the opportunity to distance himself as the top pass catching option at tight end in Denver after Julius Thomas left a few seasons ago.

Yes, Philip Rivers has historically targeted his tight ends quite a lot, but he was also throwing to one of the best ever in Gates. Green could catch 40 passes for 300 yards and two touchdowns this season and those would all be career highs for him. Needless to say, Green should go undrafted in everything other than deep tight end premium leagues where pretty much every starting tight end should be owned.

Keep an eye on this situation as there's still a possibility that the Chargers could bring back Gates for another season. If that happens, Green goes from essentially irrelevant to completely irrelevant and Gates could have some value as a streaming option given the weak talent at the position throughout the league.

Chargers bring back Antonio Gates
One-year deal
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 2, 12:45 pm

Antonio Gates and the Los Angeles Chargers have agreed to a one-year deal that brings back the tight end for a 16th season. The Chargers announced the move Sunday. They have yet to announce a corresponding move to make room for Gates on the 53-man roster. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: This move has been rumored ever since Hunter Henry went down with an ACL injury during OTAs in May. It's likely the two sides had a handshake deal, allowing Gates to miss all of training camp. Virgil Green and Sean Culkin are the other tight ends on the roster. Gates (38) will have some fantasy value as a TE2.


Gates and Chargers in active negotiations
TE has spent entire career with Chargers
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jul 25, 9:30 am

A reunion between the Los Angeles Chargers and tight end Antonio Gates appears to be inching toward becoming a reality. Gates’ agent, Tom Condon, told Alex Marvez of Sirius XM NFL Radio Tuesday night that he is in active negotiations with Chargers Executive VP of Football Administration Ed McGuire regarding Gates. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: The Chargers are in need of a tight end after losing Hunter Henry to a torn ACL in May. It seems likely this marriage will happen after Los Angeles was ready to walk away from the veteran this off-season. Virgil Green and Braedon Bowman sit atop of the tight end depth chart for now.
