Only Peyton Manning has more passing yards and touchdowns than Trent Green over the last three seasons.
With mediocre wide receivers like Johnny Morton and Eddie Kennison, it’s not surprising that Trent Green often gets overlooked as an upper-echelon fantasy quarterback. However, that shouldn’t discourage you from drafting Green, who’s been putting up some of the NFL’s most consistent passing numbers. Don’t forget that Kansas City boasts the league’s top tight end and one of the best pass-catching running backs around. Last season, Green led the league with five 300-yard games, including a 400-yard effort in Week 6 against the Packers. And if you think he puts up big yardage but doesn’t get in the endzone enough, consider that he tossed at least one TD in 15 out of 17 games last year (including postseason). That’s consistency. Consider delaying your QB selection in favor of RBs and WRs. Then grab Green in the fifth or sixth round.
