Chargers' Antonio Gates: Did not play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gates (rest) did not play in Friday's preseason game against the Cardinals.

As expected, the 36-year-old sat out Friday's contest in an effort to keep the veteran fresh heading into the season. Gates could see some playing time in the Chargers' third preseason contest against the Vikings on Sunday.

Chargers' Antonio Gates: Sits out first preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gates (rest) did not play in Saturday's preseason contest against the Titans despite being listed as active.

The 36-year-old likely won't play much during the preseason, as the Chargers will attempt to keep the veteran tight end fresh heading into the start of the regular season. Gates has been an active participant in training camp, helping mentor rookie TE and second-round pick Hunter Henry while still displaying an innate chemistry with QB Philip Rivers. While Henry will likely cut into his snap count as the regular season progresses, Gates still figures to be a starting caliber tight end in standard fantasy league formats.

Chargers' Antonio Gates: Staying put
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The San Diego Chargers have agreed to terms on a two-year extension to keep Antonio Gates with the team, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Gates, who turns 36 in June, will thus return for a 14th season with the Chargers, after catching 56 passes for 630 yards and five TDs in 11 games in 2015. Meanwhile, it's unclear if fellow tight end Ladarius Green will return to the team, but in any case, when healthy, Gates remains an integral part of the team's passing offense and on the fantasy radar.

Chargers' Antonio Gates: Likely to be team's offseason priority
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

San Diego Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said he wants Antonio Gates to stick around in San Diego and eventually retire with the team, ESPN.com reports.

Gates and Ladarius Green are both set to become unrestricted free agents, and while the latter seems likely to find a new home, it's pretty clear that the Chargers want to re-sign their future Hall of Famer. When healthy, Gates was easily the more productive player last season, posting a 56-630-5 receiving line in 11 games. There is some chance the team brings both tight ends back, as Gates has often handled limited snap counts when banged up the past few seasons.

Chargers' Antonio Gates: Totals 34 yards receiving, TD in Week 17 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gates secured three of five targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Broncos.

The 13-year veteran closed out the season on a positive note, recording his first touchdown reception since Week 12 versus the Jaguars. After a fast start to a season that began in Week 5 due to his four-game suspension for violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, Gates dealt with hip and knee injuries that appeared to slow down his 35-year-old body for a stretch of time. He rebounded nicely with 76-and-88-yard receiving efforts in Weeks 14 and 15, respectively, before finishing out the campaign in relatively quiet fashion. Over the final two contests, Gates secured five of seven targets for 45 yards, along with his aforementioned Week 17 touchdown. Despite the late-season downturn, the former Pro Bowler appeared to show enough at various points in 2015 to indicate that he can still serve as either a borderline-No.1 tight end, or the savvy veteran component of a two-tight end system. Whether his playing opportunity will come with the Chargers in 2016 is currently very much in the air, as Gates heads into the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.
