Ladarius Green, TE, Chargers
2014 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)Last updated on Jul-14-2014 by Jeb Gorham
Ladarius Green could be a fantasy TE stud by Week 8. He is more athletic and has more potential than just about any other tight end in the NFL; however, until he realizes that potential, he is a risky option (especially if drafted to be your team's starting TE). Predictions that he breakout after his promising moments in 2013 are very popular right now. This season, Green should be Philip Rivers' second-favorite target. If this pans out, Green has huge upside. If you wait to draft a TE and the top tier is gone, Green is not a bad pick-up and with the right amount of playing time, he can eclipse his ADP (TE13, 102.48) and produce like a legitimate TE1.The problem is he may need to wait another season. Antonio Gates is still the starter after all.
Editor's note: Green is the definition of a boom-or-bust sleeper. We have nothing to go on except empty promises and coach speak. Until Green is firmly the starter with more snaps and targets than Gates, fantasy owners will simply have to wait and wonder what he might be.

|11.11||FFToolbox - Scott - Shane Hallam called this pick the STEAL OF THE DRAFT. Yeah, I had a hard time picking between he and Ertz on the last pick. Surprised he was still here. Gates is in the twilight of his career and it's time for Green to emerge.|
