Chargers TE Ladarius Green gets back on track Week 6


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Chargers tight end Ladarius Green, who had just one catch his last time out, got back on track with a productive performance in a Week 6 victory over the Raiders in Oakland.

Green caught a short pass and turned it up the field for a gain of 27 yards on the opening drive of the game. He had receptions for 15, 12 and 6 yards in the third quarter and was held without a grab in the final quarter. He was thrown to six times and finished with five catches for 60 yards in a 31-28 victory.

The Chargers will host the Chiefs in Week 7.


Chargers backup wideouts do little Week 5


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Chargers backup pass catchers did little Week 5 against the Jets.

Seyi Ajirotutu hauled in one catch for 11 yards. Ladarius Green also had one catch, picking up eight yards during the contest.

Both players will look for more Week 6 against the Raiders. 


Chargers probables good to go


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Chargers probable are good to go Week 5 against the Jets.

Donald Butler, Malcom Floyd, Ladarius Green, Jarret Johnson, Cordarro Law and Jason Verrett are all active for the game. All six entered considered probable, so their availability shouldn't come as a surprise. 


Chargers release final Week 5 injury report


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) The Chargers listed three players as questionable to play in Week 5 on Friday's final injury report, including linebacker Dwight Freeney (knee), defensive tackle Corey Liuget (concussion) and tight end David Johnson (shoudler).

Freeney didn't practice Thursday but was able to work in limited fashion on Wednesday and Friday. Johnson and Liuget returned to a full practice Friday.

The Chargers listed five players as probable to face the Jets in Week 5, including tight end Ladarius Green (hamstring), cornerback Jason Verrett (hamstring) and linebackers Donald Butler (shoulder), Jarret Johnson (shoulder) and Cordarro Law (ankle).

The following players have been ruled out for Week 5 action: running back Ryan Mathews (knee), offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger (back), cornerback Shareece Wright (knee) and linebackers Manti Te'o (foot), Jeremiah Attaochu (hamstring) and Reggie Walker (ankle).


Ladarius Green limited in practice


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Chargers tight end Ladarius Green was limited in practice Wednesday. 

Green did not play Week 4 against the Jaguars. He's dealing with a hamstring injury. Green was limited in practice last Thursday, and did not practice last Friday due to the issue. 


Taking a look at the tight end waiver wire


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) With key players like Vernon Davis (back), Niles Paul (concussion), Jordan Reed (hamstring) and Tyler Eifert (elbow) dealing with injuries, finding help on the waiver wire might be the key to success at the tight end position. Here are some of Jamey Eisenberg's thoughts on the best pickups for this week.

Larry Donnell of the Giants and Travis Kelce are likely to be the most-added tight ends when waivers run Wednesday morning, and Jamey admits to being "torn" on which he prefers. Dwayne Allen of the Colts, Garrett Graham of the Texans and Reed round out the top-five, while Austin Sefarian-Jenkins, Clay Harbor and Jace Amaro are sleeper adds for deep leagues.

Charles Clay of the Dolphins and Ladarius Green of the Chargers are considered drop-worthy, if you need a roster spot. 


What to do if Vernon Davis doesn't play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis obviously makes for a risky play in Week 4 against the Eagles, as he is a game-time decision with an ankle injury.

Davis will try to test out his ankle before the game, so we should know his status around 90 minutes before their 4:25 pm EST kickoff. If you have a Davis replacement ready to slide into the lineup, make sure it is someone set to play at 4:00 pm EST or later.

Some options to consider might be Ladarius Green of the Chargers (50 percent owned), Travis Kelce (69 percent) or Anthony Fasano (3 percent) of the Chiefs, Josh Hill of the Saints (0 percent), or Davis' backup Derek Carrier (3 percent). 


Antonio Gates the only tight end labeled probable for Week 4


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/26/2014) The Chargers have three tight ends on the injury report leading to their Week 4 showdown against Jacksonville. Antonio Gates, who is dealing with a hamstring issue, seems to be the only healthy one of the bunch, having practiced in full all three days. He was officially listed as probable for Sunday.

Meanwhile, Ladarius Green, who was a limited participant in Thursday's session despite nursing a hamstring issue, missed Friday's practice. He is listed as questionable and could end up being a game time decision. David Johnson has not been able to practice this week because of a shoulder injury. He is listed as questionable for Sunday.


Ladarius Green limited Thursday due to hamstring injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2014) Chargers tight Ladarius Green was added to the practice report Thursday, as limited due to a hamstring injury. The Chargers host the Jaguars Week 4.

Ladarius Green's role grows in Week 3


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) After a mostly-quiet first two weeks to the season, Chargers tight end Ladarius Green started to show his skills in a 22-10 win over the Bills in Week 3.

Green, who had just two receptions in the first two games, hauled in four passes this time around. He was targeted six times and ended up with 64 yards on the game, good for second on the team.

Green has six receptions for 88 yards on eight targets through two games, with the Chargers set to take on the Jaguars in Week 4.  


Antonio Gates played twice as much as Ladarius Green


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Chargers tight end Antonio Gates played 54 snaps in Monday's loss at Arizona, compared to 26 snaps for promising backup Ladarius Green, per Pro Football Focus. Gates ran 37 pass routes while Green ran just 10. Green was used as a blocker on 16 of his 26 snaps.

Gates caught six passes on 10 targets for 81 yards. Green hauled in both his targets for 24 yards.


Ladarius Green plays second fiddle


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Chargers tight end Ladarius Green did not begin fulfilling his breakout potential Week 1 against the Cardinals. He was targeted just twice, catching both passes for 24 yards.

Green, 24, remains way behind starter Antonio Gates in terms of opportunities. Gates drew a game-high 10 targets and paced San Diego with six catches for 81 yards.

Green faces the Seahawks in Week 2.


Antonio Gates a big obstacle for Ladarius Green


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Ladarius Green, who caught three touchdowns in the final six games last year, is the Chargers' tight end of the future. But Antonio Gates is still the starter. Judging by their usage in August, coaches remain more comfortable with Gates in single-tight end sets.

In the 28 preseason snaps played by quarterback Philip Rivers, Gates played 26 and Green 13. In the dress rehearsal game, Gates caught all three of his targets for 28 yards and a touchdown. Green caught one of three targets for 5 yards.

Gates is 34, but he's healthy and in terrific shape. Until he breaks down, Green is not going to be playable in standard leagues.

The Chargers open the season Monday night in Arizona. It's a wonderful matchup, as the Cardinals allowed a league-high 13.3 Fantasy points per game to tight ends last year. Consider Gates a borderline TE1 for Week 1.


With Gates out, Ladarius Green plays big for Bolts


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/8/2014) The Chargers were without the services of tight end Antonio Gates on Thursday night against the Cowboys, giving Ladarius Green an opportunity to show off what he could do. Green came through with flying colors, catching two of four completions by Philip Rivers for 26 total yards.

His first catch came on a short dump-off pass over the middle of the field where Green dwarfed Cowboys defenders. His second catch was an impressive leap near the sideline for 20 yards when Rivers found him on a broken play. Green will look for more numbers at the Seahawks on Aug. 15. 


Ladarius Green continues to develop, but ...


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/7/2014) Chargers third-year tight end Ladarius Green has "taken another step in his development" this offseason and it's shown on the practice fields, ESPN reported. Green already displayed some game-breaking ability last season with the Bolts, racking up nine plays of 20-plus yards over 17 catches. 

The report did note that while Green is an exciting player, Antonio Gates still figures to be the most targeted tight end on the roster. Gates is still a red-zone threat and can still beat single coverage in the middle of the field. 


Coaches believe Ladarius Green can be 'an impact player'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Chargers coaches believe tight end Ladarius Green "has the size, speed, reach and athleticism to be an impact player, especially if he gets the right matchups," reports Bleacher Report's Dan Pompei. Green "showed some flashes" in minicamp, and the team will involve the third-year pro more this season, the report said.

Green (6-6, 240) caught 17 passes for 376 yards and three touchdowns playing behind Antonio Gates last year.


While Gates is away, Ladarius Green gets first-team reps


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/18/2014) With Chargers All Pro tight end Antonio Gates tending to a personal matter and missing minicamp this week, third-year tight end Ladarius Green is getting reps with the first-team offense. According to the Union-Tribune of San Diego, it's working out well for Green, who scored a 15-yard touchdown during two-minute drills on Tuesday 

McCoy regrets not using Ladarius Green more in 2013


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) Chargers coach Mike McCoy said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings that he wished he used tight end Ladarius Green more in 2013.

Green finished his second year with 17 catches for 376 yards and three touchdowns, but the majority of that production came during the final seven games of the year.

"What happened with him last year he made the most of his opportunities," McCoy said. "Early in the year, they were limited. As time went along, and as an offense, you always evolve to what your players do best. Being together for the first time, there were some things we were still learning about our team. It takes time. And Ladarius made the most of his opportunities. When he was in at the right time, he was continuing to make plays. You wish you would have done that a little earlier."

McCoy said he plans to use Green in tandem with Antonio Gates again in 2014.


GM: Ladarius Green 'definitely has a role moving forward'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/16/2014) Chargers general manager Tom Telesco wasn't shy about his excitement for tight end Ladarius Green. Speaking at a press conference Wednesday, Telesco was asked about both Green and Antonio Gates and how they fit in with the offense going forward and Telesco focused mainly on Green. 

"They are both two big parts of our offense," Telesco said. "Ladarius does give us some of that big play ability. With that long stride, it's deceiving how fast he really is. He can run away from defensive backs and has made some big plays for us this year. ... He definitely has a role moving forward and obviously, we know what Antonio brings to us. We need both those guys."

Green finished with 17 catches for 376 yards and three touchdowns. Fifteen of his 17 catches were good for either a first down or a touchdown. 


Chargers tight ends barely a factor


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2014) Chargers tight end Antonio Gates caught two passes for 10 yards in the playoff loss at Denver. He was targeted four times.

Fellow tight end Ladarius Green caught two of his three targets for 7 yards, dropping a perfect throw that would have converted a key third down.

Gates, 33, is scheduled to return in 2014 at a $5 million base salary, while Green is slated to earn $570,000.


Ladarius Green leads the way


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Chargers tight end Ladarius Green led the team in receiving against the Bengals.

Green had just three catches for 34 yards. He also caught a 4 yard touchdown in the third quarter. The Chargers did not rely on the passing game much, so all of their receivers were limited. Green will take on the Broncos next week.


Both Chargers tight ends find end zone


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Chargers tight ends Antonio Gates and Ladarius Green each scored a touchdown in the Week 17 win over the Chiefs. Green caught a 22-yard touchdown in the first quarter, his only reception, while Gates hauled in a 4-yard score in the second.

Gates caught four of five targets for 31 yards while making his 60th touchdown reception from Philip Rivers. That's the most by any quarterback-tight end combo in NFL history. Gates ends the season with 77 catches for 872 yards and four touchdowns, but the 33-year-old seemed to fade down the stretch.

Green is a rising 23-year-old talent who made 17 grabs for 376 yards and three touchdowns.


Chargers get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The Chargers got an array of offensive contributions in their win over the Raiders. Receiver Vincent Brown caught two of five targets for 38 yards, and tight end John Phillips caught a 5-yard pass before leaving with a knee injury.

Tight end Ladarius Green was targeted once without a catch.


Ladarius Green makes no impact Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) Chargers tight end Ladarius Green's run of solid play came to an end Thursday against the Broncos, as he was shutout in a 27-20 win.

The Chargers didn't pass the ball much Thursday, which left Green without many chances to contribute. He was targeted just once early in the fourth quarter, on a pass that fell incomplete.

Green had combined for nine receptions for 206 yards and two touchdowns in his previous three games, so Thursday's game certainly represented a step back for the second-year pro. He will try to bounce back in Week 16 against the Raiders. 


Ladarius Green still has some deep league Fantasy value


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/10/2013) Chargers tight end Ladarius Green did not record a reception in Week 14, after a string of three games with eight or more Fantasy points (in standard leagues). 

Green was undone by a series of poor circumstances -- Eddie Royal returned from a toe injury, and the Chargers had the game well in hand against the Giants, leading to a run-heavy strategy. While owners are abandoning Green in bunches, he still has some value in deeper leagues. Green has two touchdowns in his last three, and two games with 80 or more yards in his last four. 

This isn't a call to start Green and expect 80 yards, but to at least consider who is getting picked up in his stead. The Broncos, Green's Thursday night opponent, gave up touchdowns in three consecutive games before Week 14, and that streak may have gone to four had Delanie Walker been healthy. 

Green is a low-end, risky option in most formats. And while he can be dropped in shallower leagues, he's shown enough skill to be used in deeper (18-etam) formats against Denver.
