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. 


Chargers get minor contributions in Week 14 win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) The Chargers received minor contributions from several role players during Sunday's win over the Giants in Week 14.

In the running game, Le'Ron McClain saw only one carry for a gain of 1 yard. Running back Ronnie Brown chipped in with one catch for 13 yards. Tight Ladarius Green, who scored in back-to-back games, was held without a grab despite registering one target in a 37-14 victory.

Ladarius Green scores in back-to-back games


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Chargers tight end Ladarius Green found the end zone in his second consecutive game during Sunday’s contest against the Bengals in Week 13.

Philip Rivers hooked up with Green up the middle for a 30-yard score in the second quarter. He was targeted six times and finished the game with two receptions for 45 yards and a touchdown in a 17-10 defeat.

Green has five catches for 125 yards and two touchdowns over his last two games. He'll look to stay productive heading into Week 14 at home against the Giants.

Ladarius Green scores on a big play Week 12


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Chargers tight end Ladarius Green ripped off a big play Week 12 against the Chiefs.

Green received five targets, which ranked third on the team. He caught three balls, one of which went for a 60 yard touchdown. Green also had a 35 yard reception erased on a penalty. Green finished the game with 80 yards. He'll take on the Bengals Week 13.


Ladarius Green has career day against Dolphins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Good news came out of bad news in Miami for Chargers second-year wide receiver Ladarius Green. His team fell to the Dolphins, but two achievements made it an historic day for him.

Green established career-highs with four catches and 81 yards. He snagged a 32-yarder on his team's first-quarter touchdown drive and continued to produce. He added a 35-yarder later in the game.

He will attempt to take his momentum and run with it next Sunday in Kansas City.


Chargers backups do little in pass game


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Chargers wide receiver Vincent Brown and tight end Ladarius Green failed to make a big impact Week 10 against the Broncos.

Brown caught three balls for 35 yards. He was targeted four times. Green caught just one pass, picking up 25 yards. 

They'll face off against the Dolphins Week 11.


Vincent Brown, Ladarius Green make small contribution


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) The San Diego Chargers received minor receiving help from tight end Ladarius Green and wide receiver Vincent Brown on Sunday during an overtime loss at Washington Week 9. 

Brown and Green each caught one pass in the game from quarterback Philip Rivers. Brown was targeted six times but caught one ball for 17 yards. Green finished with one catch for 10 yards on the one target. Neither player scored. 

Brown has one touchdown this season and has fallen way behind Keenan Allen on the depth chart. Green is just the backup tight end to Antonio Gates. San Diego hosts Denver Week 10. 


Ladarius Green goes for 40 yards


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Chargers tight end Ladarius Green hauled in two receptions for 40 yards on Sunday during a win at Jacksonville. Green was targeted three times in the Week 7 game. 

Green, who had a long reception of 27 yards and did not score in the game, now has five catches on the year for 113 yards. The Chargers are on bye Week 8 and return Week 9 at Washington. 


Chargers get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2013) Several Chargers made small contributions in the Week 6 win over the Colts. Tight end Ladarius Green caught a 25-yard pass and receiver Eddie Royal had a 4-yard run.

Fullback Le'Ron McClain ran twice for 3 yards and caught a pass for minus-1 yard. Ronnie Brown carried twice for 3 yards.


Role players stat for Chargers Week 3


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2013) The Chargers received some minor offensive contributions during a 20-17 loss Week 3 at Tennessee.

Fullback Le'Ron McClain managed one carry for 7 yards, but also had one catch for minus-6 yards. Tight end Ladarius Green had two catches for 48 yards. 

Unfortunately, not all contributions were positive. Rookie wide receiver Keenan Allen made his first career start with Malcom Floyd sidelined by a neck injury, but he managed just one catch for minus-4 yards.

San Diego's next opponent will be the Cowboys in Week 4.


Ladarius Green making a home in the end zone


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2013) Chargers tight end Ladarius Green found the end zone for the second week in a row Thursday against the Bears, as he continues to show his abilities in the preseason. 

The 6'6" passcatcher out of Louisiana-Lafayette was the team's top option Thursday. He hauled in all five passes thrown his way for 78 yards, including a 12-yard touchdown from Charlie Whitehurst. 

Green caught just four passes in four games as a rookie in 2012, after being a fourth-round pick in the draft. He admitted a season spent on the sidelines has helped his progression.

"I'm learning from [Antonio] Gates," Green told U-T San Diego. "I've learned from Randy [McMichael] and Dante [Rosario], and now I'm learning from John Phillips as well. All these guys are helping me to just calm down. Everything seems a little bit slower now."

Green is third on the depth chart at tight end, but his play in the preseason could improve his stock. 


Chargers seeing improvement from Ladarius Green


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/12/2013) Chargers second-year tight end Ladarius Green, a 6-foot-6, 240 pounder, has been opening eyes with his work in training camp. He even caught the Bolts' only touchdown pass in their first preseason game. 

Green could be in line for more playing time this season. 

"He's done a nice job of just getting into the flow of the game," head coach Mike McCoy said per ESPN. "He's a young football player with a good future in front of him and it's just a matter of buying in and learning the system ... He has improved his blocking and is a threat in the passing game. He's getting better every day."


Green puts on more weight


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2012) Chargers rookie tight end put on three more pounds of muscle since minicamp, the North County Times reports. Green is bulking up so he can be a factor as a run blocker.
