Denver Post - [Full Article]

Broncos TE Virgil Green caught three passes during the Broncos’ first possession, a 10-play, 76-yard touchdown drive. He caught passes on the left side, the right side and over the middle.

Even with only one series of playing time, Green had his best game as a receiver since November. Against the Green Bay Packers in Denver last season, Green caught three passes for 61 yards. Not coincidentally, that was Peyton Manning’s best passing game of the season. He completed 21-of-29 passes for 340 yards. The Broncos won easily.

Tight ends do matter.

“I know the offense,” Green said. “I knew it last year, but after playing in the system for a full year, I understand how to get open and what to look for. It does feel a little different in that aspect. I really know what’s going on everywhere. I know what all the receivers are doing. I know what the O-line is doing. I know everything that’s going on.”

Fantasy Impact:

Consider Green a sleeper TE2. He has terrific athletic ability and finally has an opportunity to start in his 5th season.
