Player Outlook

Antonio Gates stayed with the Chargers this season after signing a two-year contract extension, and he should once again be considered a No. 1 Fantasy option in the majority of leagues. He'll be 36 in June, but Gates still continues to produce at a high level. He was suspended for the first four games in 2015 and also sat out Week 7 against Oakland with a knee injury, but he still finished with 56 catches for 630 yards and five touchdowns on 84 targets. If you project that over 16 games, Gates would have had 81 catches for 916 yards and seven touchdowns, which makes him a Top 10 tight end in all formats. We hope he can hit those stats again, and he could benefit with Ladarius Green (Steelers) gone, even though Hunter Henry was added in the draft. Gates should be considered a No. 1 Fantasy tight end worth drafting with a late-round pick in all leagues.

Player News
  • Chargers' Antonio Gates: Inactive Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gates (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts. With Gates out, Hunter Henry is the top candidate to see the Chargers' primary Week 3 pass-catching duties at tight end, making him an option for those scrambling to replace the likes of Gates or Delanie Walker.

  • Chargers' Antonio Gates: Listed as doubtful
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gates (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Colts. With Gates likely to be inactive Sunday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune believes that Hunter Henry is the top candidate "to pick up the load in the passing game along with his usual run-block dealings," with Sean McGrath also on hand and Asante Cleveland potentially a practice-squad promotion.

  • Gates (hamstring) is not present at Friday's warmup practice, the San Diego Union-Tribune's Tom Krasovic reports. Absent from practice for a third straight day, Gates is in serious danger of missing Sunday's game against the Colts. An absence would leave second-round rookie Hunter Henry as the top tight end, further depleting a San Diego receiving corps that has already lost Keenan Allen (knee) and Danny Woodhead (knee) for the season. Another update will be available later Friday afternoon when the Chargers release their final injury report.

  • Gates (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. We'll revisit Gates' status Thursday, but if he ends up being limited at all Sunday against the Colts, Hunter Henry could be in line for added snaps in Week 3.

  • Gates caught three of five targets for 15 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-14 win over the Jaguars. The touchdown catch was the 105th of Gates' storied career. He isn't what he used to be, but still provides quarterback Philip Rivers with a big-bodied red zone option. The 36-year-old tight end has seen his receptions and yardage totals drop in each of the last two seasons, but could see an increase in targets with Danny Woodhead (knee) joining Keenan Allen (knee) on San Diego's injury report.
