Chargers' Antonio Gates: Amasses 10 targets in win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gates caught five of his 10 targets for 38 yards in Sunday's win over the Falcons.

Gates was relegated to a de facto check-down machine as the Chargers fell behind early in the second quarter. As a result, the tight end picked up a whopping 10 targets, tied for the most on the team Sunday, but Gates was unable to do much with them as the Falcons' defense clamped down. While Gates saw just 38 snaps compared to Hunter Henry's 47, the 36-year-old still has the attention of Philip Rivers, and that alone provides some fantasy value, but likely not enough for owners to use Gates on a consistent basis.

Chargers' Antonio Gates: Not listed on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gates (hamstring) was not listed on the Chargers' injury report Wednesday.

Despite suggesting that he was playing at less than 100 percent the veteran tight end was full go in practice Wednesday, likely confirming his availability for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Even though Gates registered just 31 snaps during the Chargers' Thursday night victory over the Broncos, compared to Hunter Henry's 45, the 36-year-old did see six targets and will likely continue to command attention from QB Philip Rivers, particularly in the red zone. While he might not be the most fantasy-friendly TE on the Chargers roster, Gates still has some fantasy value, particularly in deeper leagues.

Chargers' Antonio Gates: Still bothered by hammy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gates is still bothered by the hamstring injury that sidelined him for Weeks 3 and 4, ESPN.com reports.

Gates didn't take part in Monday's practice even though no aggravation was reported in the aftermath of Thursday's win over Denver. He said he's been playing at less than 100 percent strength, which raises questions about his effectiveness, if not his availability, heading into Sunday's game against Atlanta. Gates sounded like he expects to play, though he'll likely serve in a part-time role once again.

Chargers' Antonio Gates: Watching Monday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gates did not practice Monday, the San Diego Union-Tribune's Michael Gehlken reports.

Gates didn't surface from last Thursday's win over the Broncos with any reported injury, so it's entirely possible he was granted a veteran's day off at a rare Monday practice. The release of San Diego's first injury report of the week Wednesday should clarify his situation.

Chargers' Antonio Gates: Catches two passes in win over Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gates caught just two of his six targets for 16 yards in Thursday's win over the Broncos.

Gates appeared to be out of sync with quarterback Philip Rivers as the duo seemed to miscommunicate on two separate red zone plays during the third quarter. While Gates still saw the second most targets on the team Thursday, the veteran tight end may be losing his grapple on the starting job, as rookie tight end Hunter Henry has picked up at least 70 receiving yards in each of the last four games. However considering the lack of consistent, healthy weapons on offense, Gates still figures to see enough action near the red zone to justify fantasy consideration most weeks.
