Chargers TE Antonio Gates comes up big Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates came up big Thursday night against the Broncos.

The Chargers offense wasn't all that impressive early, but Gates still managed to make some plays. He only had 3 yards in the first quarter, but got going in the second. On the team's second drive of the quarter, Gates drew a defensive pass interference penalty and picked up 37 yards on two catches. He really started to come on during the second half. On Gates' first reception of the third quarter, he managed a 4 yard touchdown. On the next drive, Gates hauled in a 10 yard score from Philip Rivers. He finished with five receptions for 54 yards and two scores. 

Gates will take on the Dolphins Week 9.

Antonio Gates catches touchdown in Chargers' Week 7 loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates caught three of his four targets for a team-high 67 yards and scored a touchdown in his team's 23-20 loss to the Chiefs in Week 7.

Gates was in the right place at the right time on the score, catching a deflection in the end zone on a 27-yard play in the second quarter to give his team a halftime lead. He's managed to score four times in the last three games, and though he wasn't targeted much Sunday, he posted his highest yardage total since Week 2. Gates has racked up 27 catches for 363 yards and seven touchdowns. The Chargers will head to Denver for a Thursday night battle in Week 8.

Chargers TE Antonio Gates scores TD No. 6
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates only had three grabs, but made one of them count for six in a Week 6 victory over the Raiders on Sunday.

Gates came down with a 1-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. He caught a 10-yard pass from Philip Rivers on the opening drive of the game and 16-yard reception in the fourth quarter. He was targeted eight times and finished with three catches for 27 yards in a 31-28 victory. He has 302 receiving yards and six touchdowns through six games.

Gates will look to bounce back in Week 7 at home against Kansas City.

Fantasy Analysis | 1412621855
Antonio Gates likely to remain boom or bust
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Recently recovered from a hamstring injury and notoriously brittle at age 34, Chargers tight end Antonio Gates played only 54 percent of the team's snaps in a blowout win Week 5 against the Jets despite scoring two early touchdowns.

The limited work was just the latest shift for the veteran tight end, who played 94 percent of the team's snaps in Week 4 after playing 64 percent in Week 3, 50 percent in Week 2 and 85 percent in Week 1.

His two biggest performances were also the two games when he played the least (he scored three touchdowns against the Seahawks in Week 2), which only adds to the mystery. Who is Antonio Gates, how much does he play, and how likely is quarterback Philip Rivers to find him in the red zone?

Frankly, after the way the last few years have gone, any way the Chargers can keep Gates on the field should be a-OK with Fantasy owners. Fewer reps some weeks is a worthy tradeoff for an opportunity at multi-score games. It may make Gates frustrating to predict, but the highs are high enough to stick with him through the lows.

Chargers' Antonio Gates hauls in two scores Week 5
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates hauled in two scores Week 5 against the Jets.

Gates only had four catches, but made the most of the outing. He gained 60 yards, and found the end zone twice. In the first quarter, Gates caught an 8 yard score from Philip Rivers. A few drives later, he struck again, this time pulling in a 12 yard touchdown. Gates would catch a 12 yard pass late in the third quarter, but that was it. 

Gates will take on the Raiders Week 6.
