Chargers | Antonio Gates back in the end zone

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (undisclosed) managed just four grabs for 31 yards in the Week 16 game against the Carolina Panthers, but he was able to post his first touchdown since Week 10. He left the game briefly due to an undisclosed injury, but missed just one play. The touchdown was his 81st career score, tying him with Hall of Fame WR Lance Alworth for the all-time franchise lead.

Fantasy Tip: Gates has 57 or fewer yards in each of his past eight games dating back to his season-high 81 yards in Week 6. He can no longer be considered an absolute must-start in fantasy leagues, although he remains a Top 15 option at his position heading into Week 16.
