Chargers | Antonio Gates probable

Sat, 20 Sep 2014 15:17:48 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is probable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Gates ($6,600; 13.2% of your cap) is a decent play on FantasyScore this week. There is a lot of rain in the forecast in Buffalo Sunday, Sept. 21. This bodes well for Gates because the offense will likely run the ball a lot and use short-to-intermediate passing routes. Gates could be targeted heavily in the poor weather.

Chargers | Antonio Gates a limited participant

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 14:34:51 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good sign for Gates after not practicing Wednesday. He should be able to suit up in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills. It'll be tough to top his Week 2 production, but Gates ($6,600) still makes for a solid FantasyScore option as one of Philip Rivers' favorite targets.

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is not participating in position drills Thursday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Gates was able to play with the injury last week and has a chance to play Week 2 despite missing some practice time. Gates will be facing the Seattle Seahawks defense if he plays, which could hurt his value. Owners could consider using another tight end if they have a better matchup.

Chargers | Antonio Gates held back in practice

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 14:37:37 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Gates was questionable heading into Week 1 but wound up playing and leading the team with six catches (10 targets) for 81 yards in a loss to the Arizona Cardinals. He could be questionable again this week against the Seattle Seahawks. Because of the matchup, you may want to avoid him entirely at FantasyScore ($4,100; 8.2% of cap) despite the decent cost.

Chargers | Antonio Gates not on field

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 12:04:26 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Gates was able to play Week 1, so he may be receiving an additional day of rest before returning to practice. Gates will be facing a solid Seattle Seahawks defense, which could limit his value. He costs $4,100 at FantasyScore, but owners should consider spending a little more money for a better option at the position.

Chargers | Antonio Gates leads team

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 22:57:10 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates had a game-high six receptions with a team-high 81 yards in the Week 1 game against the Arizona Cardinals, while fellow TE Ladarius Green managed just two grabs for 24 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Gates was considered a game-time decision leading up to the game, and people have tried writing him off, but he is still clearly productive. FantasyScore owners should still pay him mind in Week 2, and he could be had at a pretty nice price compared to the other top players at the position.
