Broncos TE Virgil Green looking to break out

DenverBroncos.com - [Full Article]

Sixth-year tight end Virgil Green, who caught 12 passes for 173 yards in 2015, is making a strong case that 2016 may be his breakout season for the Broncos. Saturday night’s opening drive was a prime example of Green’s potential in the Broncos’ passing game.

On consecutive plays on that first drive, Green caught short passes from Siemian and stretched the catches into double-digit gains. He pushed the Broncos forward 28 yards with those two catches as Denver went from its own 25-yard line to the Niners’ 47-yard line.

“It was a play-action the first play,” Green said. “Wide-open [and] Trevor [Siemian] threw me a nice ball. Caught it, tried to do what I could after the catch. Then, the screen, they rushed a guy, dropped a lot of guys. There was one guy sitting on the sideline. [I] ran past him.”

Fantasy Impact:

Jeff Heuerman missed Saturday’s game with a hamstring injury and is having “a hard time staying healthy,” Head Coach Gary Kubiak said. Green has been consistently available since recovering from a finger injury that kept him out of OTAs in the spring, the story all said. We've had other reports about the team re-introducing the TE into the offense, so things could be shaping up for a Green breakout. He's an interesting TE2 draft option who has the chance to climb out charts. But keep in mind his QB situation remains a big question mark and could cap his fantasy potential.
