  • Gates caught one of his two targets for 18 yards in the 20-6 win over the Raiders on Sunday. The veteran tight end has rarely been needed in the past two weeks as the Chargers have maintained a comfortable margin throughout both games. That might not be the case next week as the Chargers face off against their bitter division rival, the Broncos, next week.

  • Gates secured two of his three targets for 11 yards in Sunday's nail-biting 20-19 win over the Titans. At this point, any notion of the veteran tight end returning to his former fantasy glory has to be cast aside, as Gates has seen over 16 percent of the target share just twice this season. He remains a fantastic option to move the chains when called upon, but the lack of targets and snaps (13 to Virgil Green's 32 on Sunday) would suggest Gates is not a rosterable fantasy asset at this stage of his career.

  • Gates caught just one of his two targets during the 38-14 win over the Browns on Sunday. Neither Gates nor Virgil Green had to do much in this one, as the Chargers easily jumped out to a massive first-half lead. The veteran tight end has caught more than two passes just once through the first six weeks of the season and remains a very low-end fantasy option, at best.

  • Chargers' Antonio Gates: Catches two passes
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gates caught both of his targets for 19 yards in the 26-10 win Sunday over the Raiders. Gates was used minimally during the game as the Chargers held a comfortable lead throughout. The veteran tight end has played over 30 snaps just once through five weeks, and remains a longshot in terms of a fantasy option.

  • Chargers' Antonio Gates: Snares touchdown in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gates caught two of his five targets for 27 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 29-27 win over the 49ers. Gates corralled his first touchdown of the season late in the first quarter, gathering in a five-yard red-zone pass to put the Chargers up seven points in the opening frame. Other than the touchdown, however, the ageless veteran put together another typically mundane performance, ripping off a 22-yard catch-and-run for his only other play of the game. Virgil Green's grasp of the starting spot was as firm as ever Sunday, as the former Broncos tight end participated in 74 percent of the team's offensive snaps compared to just 34 percent for Gates. Unless that ratio drastically changes, neither tight end will make for a particularly consistent fantasy producer.
