Broncos | Virgil Green could see time in the backfield

Tue, 15 Jul 2014 19:56:52 -0700

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green could be used in a fullback role at times this season, according to Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com. Legwold said Denver has been tinkering with the idea because the team lacks a true fullback while five of the seven running backs coming to camp weigh less than 215 pounds.

Broncos | Joel Dreessen not expected to play

Tue, 03 Sep 2013 11:13:57 -0700

Denver Broncos TE Joel Dreessen (knee) is not expected to play in the team's Week 1 game Thursday, Sept. 5, so TEs Julius Thomas, Jacob Tamme and Virgil Green will play. Thomas is expected to start and see the majority of snaps in single tight end sets, two-back sets or three-wide sets.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is a sneaky waiver-wire addition to fortify the depth of your tight end core before Week 1. Thomas' value will likely be tied to the health of Dreessen all season, but he has more upside in an offense that will be explosive. He should be seen as a TE2 with the talent to perform as a low-end TE1 many weeks.

Broncos | Two TEs out for preseason opener

Wed, 07 Aug 2013 08:54:25 -0700

Denver Broncos TEs Joel Dreessen (knee) and Jacob Tamme (quadriceps) are both out for the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 8, against the San Francisco 49ers. Dreessen just had his knee scoped, and is expected to miss most of the preseason. TE Virgil Green, Jake O'Connell and recently added TE DeAngelo Peterson will see plenty of playing time.

Broncos | Julius Thomas, Virgil Green have opportunities

Tue, 06 Aug 2013 15:08:24 -0700

Updating a previous item, Denver Broncos TEs Julius Thomas and Virgil Green are getting increased repetitions with the first-team offense in training camp this week with TEs Joel Dreessen (knee) and Jacob Tamme (quadriceps) injured. Thomas was drafted in the fourth round in 2011, compared to the seventh round for Green. Thomas has been playing as a receiving tight end while Green has been playing more at the line of scrimmage. Thomas' blocking has improved since he was drafted, and he started with the No. 1 offense last weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas or Green could start the season seeing significant time alongside Tamme if Dreessen isn't ready for Week 1. However, because of Tamme's receiving experience, neither will likely see enough targets to become fantasy relevant until beyond 2013.

Broncos | Not using tight ends often

Wed, 21 Dec 2011 12:53:40 -0800

The Denver Broncos are rarely using TEs Dante Rosario, Daniel Fells and Virgil Green in the offense, preferring to keep them in as blocking weapons most of the time. "We have been asked to block more, and that's just doing our part in making sure the offense runs smoothly," Rosario said. "There's going to be games where tight ends are thrown to quite a few times, and there's going to be games like this last game (vs. the Patriots) where we don't get thrown to at all."
