Sortable TE Projections
Notes: Green played 33% of snaps on the season, but played 40%+ in the final six games, indicating that the team likes what he brings to the table. He's still playing behind Antonio Gates, so it's surprising to see him going ahead of Gates in early fantasy drafts. He does have upside, but it's hard to see him posting TE1 numbers without an injury to Gates.

Ladarius Green will 'explode,' has 'true Pro Bowl potential'

NFL.com's Gil Brandt on Chargers TE Ladarius Green: "The 24-year-old is very, very athletic, a long-striding guy who seems to gain about 5 yards with every step he takes (see: his yards-per-catch mark of 22.1 in 2013). Considering his upward trajectory and Philip Rivers' history of success with the more famous of San Diego's dynamic tight ends -- Antonio Gates -- I expect Green to explode in 2014. He has true Pro Bowl potential."
Green has a ton of upside, but owners drafting him as their TE1 may be in for a rude awakening if he doesn't get much playing time. Green only played 33% of the snaps in 2013, and only broke the 50% mark twice all season (though both happened in the final five games). Green's breakout potential relies on his playing time.
