Chargers | LAC contacts Antonio Gates

Wed, 13 Jun 2018 19:50:52 -0700

Free-agent TE Antonio Gates (Chargers) has recently been contacted by the Los Angeles Chargers, according to general manager Tom Telesco.

Fantasy Tip: Gates probably is one of several tight ends the Chargers are considering at this point, but Gates would play right away if he re-signs with the Chargers. He has not been a great fantasy option over the last few seasons and would only be a No. 2 fantasy tight end if he returns to Los Angeles.

Chargers | QB in favor of Antonio Gates re-signing

Wed, 30 May 2018 20:20:03 -0700

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers said he would be in favor of free-agent TE Antonio Gates (Chargers) re-signing with the Chargers this offseason. Rivers said he talked with Gates last week.

Fantasy Tip: Gates was not expected to return to the Chargers, but he is now an option for the team because of Hunter Henry's injury. Gates probably would have a decent role in the passing game but would only be a No. 2 fantasy tight end in most leagues.

Chargers | LAC considering Antonio Gates

Sat, 26 May 2018 09:18:24 -0700

Updating a previous report, free-agent TE Antonio Gates (Chargers) is a player the Los Angeles Chargers have discussed re-signing this offseason because of TE Hunter Henry's (knee) injury.

Fantasy Tip: Gates knows the offense and is probably the most likely candidate to be signed by the Chargers this offseason. He has slowed down over the last several seasons but would have a solid role in the offense if he rejoins the Chargers. He could be a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Chargers | LA to bring back Antonio Gates?

Tue, 22 May 2018 23:43:10 -0700

The Los Angeles Chargers are likely to consider re-signing free-agent TE Antonio Gates, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Gates had previously been told he would not be brought back, but TE Hunter Henry (knee) suffered what's believed to be a season-ending knee injury Tuesday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Gates, who is currently unsigned, has spent all 15 of his seasons with the Chargers, so he knows the offense and has the trust of Philip Rivers. If Gates is brought back and looks poised to be the primary pass catcher at the tight end position he could have some TE2 value and maybe even a little upside.

NFL | Antonio Gates wants to play in 2018

Fri, 27 Apr 2018 20:27:20 -0700

Free-agent TE Antonio Gates (Chargers) said Friday, April 27, that he wants to continue playing, even though the Los Angeles Chargers informed him in the offseason that they do not intend to sign him.

Fantasy Tip: It would be weird seeing Gates wearing another uniform, but if he plays in 2018 that's exactly what you'll see. It's possible he could get a sniff from the Dallas Cowboys, as Jason Witten retired and they had their pocket picked by the Philadelphia Eagles for Dallas Goedert in Round 2 of the draft. Stay tuned.

Chargers | Antonio Gates unlikely to re-sign

Fri, 27 Apr 2018 14:06:40 -0700

Free-agent TE Antonio Gates (Chargers) wants to continue his playing career but has been told that the Los Angeles Chargers do not plan to re-sign him, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Chargers will be going with Hunter Henry as their starting tight end, and he will continue to be a solid contributor in the passing game. He should be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 fantasy tight end. Gates probably will be able to find a one-year deal with a team but will not be a strong fantasy option.

Chargers | No talks with Antonio Gates and Chargers

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 05:24:05 -0700

Free-agent TE Antonio Gates (Chargers) hasn't had any recent contact with the Los Angeles Chargers, according to general manager Tom Telesco. The chances are slim that he re-signs with the team.

Fantasy Tip: Gates is about to turn 38 and doesn't have much sizzle left on the fantasy burner. Perhaps he could be a TE2 in the right spot.

Chargers | Antonio Gates' reps to meet with Chargers

Thu, 01 Mar 2018 09:43:36 -0800

Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent TE Antonio Gates' agents will meet with the Chargers this week at the NFL combine, according to general manager Tom Telesco. Telesco said he believes Gates, who will turn 38 years old this summer, can still play in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: The Chargers really don't have a need for Gates. He will be 38 years old when the season starts and they already have one of the best, young tight ends in the league in Hunter Henry. They could use him in two tight end sets and near the goal line, but from a fantasy perspective Gates is ostensibly washed up.

Chargers | Antonio Gates' future up in the air

Thu, 04 Jan 2018 18:39:39 -0800

Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates' future with the team is currently undecided, general manager Tom Telesco said Thursday, Jan. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Gates took a backseat to Hunter Henry for much of this season, and if he ends up returning to the Chargers in 2018, he'll be a touchdown-dependent TE2.

Chargers | Antonio Gates wants to play in 2018

Sun, 31 Dec 2017 19:26:26 -0800

Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates will be a free agent after the season, but he said he still has "the juice" and would like to play in 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Gates closed the year with a couple of solid outings, but if he does play somewhere in 2018, he will be a touchdown-dependent TE2.
