Chargers | Antonio Gates has no targets

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 21:20:47 -0800

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates did not have any catches and he was not even targeted in the Week 12 game against the Houston Texans, snapping his 77-game streak with at least one reception.

Fantasy Tip: It was an ugly goose egg for fantasy owners relying upon Gates as a low-end TE1. There was no report of any injury, but if an update comes out we'll have it for you. He'll look to rebound in Week 14.

Chargers | Antonio Gates finds end zone

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 19:29:03 -0800

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates posted four receptions for 63 yards with a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Miami Dolphins. He was targeted nine times.

Fantasy Tip: Gates was on the injury report with a knee this week, but when it was game time he showed no ill effects of the injury. People keep trying to write Gates off and all he does is produce. However, he won't be producing anything in Week 11 with the team on a bye.

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (knee) practiced in full again Friday, Nov. 11, and he is expected to start in the Week 10 game against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Gates is looking to visit the end zone for a third straight week when Miami comes calling. He remains a decent low-end TE1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 13:43:38 -0800

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Gates has officially taken back his place as the starting tight end for the Chargers. While he looks sluggish and over the hill at times, he should still be started as a TE1 this week.

Chargers | Antonio Gates limited

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 14:36:27 -0800

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Gates was more involved in a high-scoring win last week, but Hunter Henry wasn't playing. Even so, something must be said of the two touchdowns Gates has scored in consecutive games. He's not his old self, but he's still capable of producing TE1 numbers.

Fantasy Tip: Gates continues to produce, and he was especially strong in this one with Hunter Henry on the mend. Gates remains a low-end TE1 heading into Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.

Chargers | Five catches for Antonio Gates

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 22:53:35 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates posted a season-high five receptions for 38 yards on 10 targets in the Week 7 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Gates has been bothered by a hamstring injury, and he hasn't posted more than 38 yards receiving in any of his five outings. Avoid him in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues until he starts to produce more consistent results.

Chargers | Antonio Gates not 100 percent

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 21:55:17 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) said Monday, Oct. 17, that he is not 100 percent healthy. "It's very difficult when you're constantly playing on it," Gates said. "This is new for me, to be dealing with a hamstring. So I'm learning a lot about it."

Fantasy Tip: With Gates laboring, rookie Hunter Henry has seen a bigger role in the San Diego offense and he is flourishing. Gates is only worth using in deeper fantasy leagues, while Henry is worth using in all leagues of 12 or more teams while running hot.

Chargers | Antonio Gates playing in Week 5

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 12:37:54 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 5 game.

Fantasy Tip: Gates has missed the last few games because of the injury and could see limited snaps in Week 5. He will be a risky option for most fantasy owners and could stay on the bench if owners have better options to use.
