Chargers' Antonio Gates catches 70th touchdown from Rivers
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

While Chargers tight end Antonio Gates was able to reach the end zone, it was not enough to defeat the Broncos Sunday.

Gates was able to hook up with quarterback Philip Rivers for their 70th touchdown reception, but the Chargers lost 22-10. The 70th touchdown pass between the pair came on a 5-yard pass in third quarter. It was the first time Gates was able to reach the end zone since Oct. 23 against the Broncos.

The Chargers next play Saturday at Kansas City.

Malcom Floyd leads quiet Chargers receiving night vs. Patriots
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd caught three of his six targets for a team-high 54 yards and one touchdown in his team's 23-14 loss to the Patriots in Week 14.

Floyd made an excellent play on a slightly overthrown ball after beating his man early in the second quarter, hauling in a 15-yard touchdown to put the Chargers ahead for the first time Sunday. They would maintain that lead until the fourth quarter, where they surrendered 10 points and took the loss.

Running back Donald Brown and tight end Antonio Gates shared the team lead in receptions, with both players hauling in five passes. Brown gained 49 yards on six targets while Gates managed just 34 yards on eight targets. Eddie Royal caught just two of his five targets for 30 yards, while nominal No. 1 receiver Keenan Allen was held to three yards on two receptions.

The Chargers will certainly be looking for a better effort by the passing game in the team's Week 15 matchup with the Broncos.

Antonio Gates shows signs of improvement
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates broke out of his slump in Week 13, with his best performance in four weeks in a 34-33 win over the Ravens.

Gates, who had been targeted just 10 times in the team's previous three games, had eight passes thrown his way Saturday. He hauled in seven of those passes for 83 yards, his best yardage total since Week 2 and second best of the season.

Gates has continued to defy aging, but production has come with more fits and starts this season than in the past. The Chargers spread the ball around too much for Gates to put up huge numbers on a weekly basis, but he is still involved enough to be worth a look most weeks, given how weak the tight end spot is for most Fantasy owners.

Chargers TE Antonio Gates gets back on track Week 13
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates, who was held to two grabs his last time out, bounced back with a productive performance in Sunday's 34-33 victory over the Ravens.

Gates came down with a 23-yard reception in the second quarter for his longest gain of the day. He registered three receptions of 15-plus yards. Gates was targeted eight times and finished with seven catches for 83 yards. He has 47 catches for 574 yards and nine touchdowns on the season.

San Diego will host New England in Week 14.

Philip Rivers, Antonio Gates missing each other
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

For the first eight weeks of the season, Philip Rivers looked like a must-start Fantasy quarterback, even putting together a stretch of seven straight games with multiple touchdown passes. Tight end Antonio Gates was on the receiving end of nine of them.

But in four weeks since then, nothing has gone right for them. Though he got his yardage back up to a respectable level, Rivers had his third straight game with no more than one touchdown pass Week 12 against St. Louis, most likely confining him to the bench in standard 12-team leagues for at least another week. And Gates probably belongs there with him.

As critical as Gates was to Rivers' success in the early going, perhaps it's no surprise he's struggling now. He was targeted only twice in Week 12, catching both balls for 14 yards, and is averaging 2.7 catches for 24.7 yards during Rivers' three-game drought. And of course, he has no touchdowns.

It's not exactly a chicken-and-egg scenario. Whether or not health is a factor, as has been rumored, Rivers' struggles have most likely led to Gates' and not the other way around. But because their fates are so closely tied, you'll need to see Rivers get back on track before you can fully trust Gates again. Tight end being a much shallower position, though, Gates isn't the clear sit Rivers is.
