Chargers | Antonio Gates listed as doubtful

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 13:07:17 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Gates will miss at least one more week because of his injury. Hunter Henry will receive most of the playing time at tight end and should be an attractive starting option in deeper leagues since he should receive targets during the game.

Chargers | Antonio Gates remains out of practice

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 11:36:57 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is expected to miss his second straight game in Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Gates was given a three-week timeline after his diagnosis and it looks like that will be the case. Hunter Henry played every offensive snap in Week 3 and fared well. The rookie gets another soft matchup this week and is a high-upside play at home against one of the worst defenses in the league.

Chargers | Antonio Gates not on the field

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 12:15:05 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is not participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Gates probably will miss at least one more game because his injury, but owners should continue to monitor the situation. Hunter Henry would start again if Gates is ruled out and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues after a solid 76-yard performance in Week 3.

Chargers | Antonio Gates does not practice

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 14:06:48 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Gates wasn't close to playing in Week 3, so it might be a long shot for him to suit up against the New Orleans Saints Sunday, Oct. 2. In the majority of leagues, you'll likely want to maximizing the upside of your bench and move on from the veteran because owning two tight ends is often at the peril of your running back and wide receiver depth. Hunter Henry played every snap last week and had five catches for 76 yards. He's worth a look in deep settings.

Chargers | Antonio Gates likely to miss Week 4

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 10:50:27 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) "wasn't close" to playing in Week 3 versus the Indianapolis Colts and is likely to miss Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints, according to Michael Gehlken of The San Diego Union-Tribune.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter Henry played all 59 snaps versus the Colts and fared well outside of a late fourth-quarter fumble that squashed any chance of a rally, finishing with five catches for 76 yards. It appears the rookie could be in for another busy day at the office in a plus-matchup at home versus New Orleans next week.

Chargers | Antonio Gates not playing

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 13:15:30 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) has been declared inactive for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter Henry will start at tight end and should have a solid role in the passing game in Week 3. He could be a decent option in daily fantasy leagues and can be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Chargers | Asante Cleveland promoted

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 11:21:58 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Asante Cleveland was signed off the practice squad Saturday, Sept. 24, further signaling that Antonio Gates (hamstring) will likely not play in Week 3 versus the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter Henry will get the start barring a miraculous recovery by Gates and should receive the bulk of the snaps in a plus-matchup, but the rookie is still going to be hard to trust as a streaming option until we see just how comfortable Philip Rivers is with him.

Chargers | Antonio Gates doubtful for Week 3

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 11:59:19 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) has yet to practice this week and has been all but ruled out for Week 3 versus the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: ESPN reported earlier Friday that Gates has been told he will need two to three weeks to recover, so owners should prepare for a multi-week absence from the veteran tight end. Rookie Hunter Henry will draw his first start as a result, but he's a weak streaming option even in a favorable matchup this week.

Chargers | Antonio Gates not on the field

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 11:23:31 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is not participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Gates' availability for Week 3 is uncertain at this point, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation over the next few days. He would have a decent matchup if he plays, but owners may want to use other options in their lineup.
