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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
