Los Angeles Chargers TE Virgil Green proving valuable in front of Antonio Gates - Ernie Padaon
All the attention from opposing defenders are going to Keenan Allen or Mike Williams. Then they are going to cover over the top against Travis Benjamin and they are going to watch the crossing routes with Tyrell Williams. They have to cover underneath with Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler. There are too many options for defenders to cover and the last place they will be looking is Virgil Green.
