Chargers | Antonio Gates breaks record

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 05:45:02 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates became the franchise's all-time leader in receiving yards, passing WR Lance Alworth, at 9,585 yards Thursday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Gates has been sensational at age 34. His two TDs in Week 8 tied him with Julius Thomas for the league lead with nine. The Chargers travel to Miami in Week 9 before their Week 10 bye. Check Gates' price tag on FantasyScore and look to add him to your lineup.

Chargers | Jets won't ignore Antonio Gates

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 09:14:25 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates torched the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2 when they underestimated him, and New York Jets LB David Harris said they won't make that same mistake. "He is a guy that, you have to somebody underneath, and over the top, at all times," Harris said. Gates had three total touchdowns on seven catches and 96 yards against Seattle.

Fantasy Tip: Since Gates' big Week 2 performance, he's had just four catches for 38 yards in the last two weeks. The Jets have been friendly to tight ends this year, though, so even if they game plan for Gates, he could pay off at FantasyScore for a price of $5,800 (11.6% of cap).

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 11:53:18 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is active for the team's Week 4 game.

Chargers | Ladarius Green's role expanding?

Sat, 27 Sep 2014 18:00:07 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green (hamstring) has been targeted seven times this season, and five of those targets came in Week 3. Meanwhile, TE Antonio Gates saw just one target in Week 3 after being targeted a combined 17 times in the team's first two games.

Fantasy Tip: After Gates lit up the Seahawks for three scores in Week 2, the Bills responded by paying extra attention to the veteran in Week 3. If opposing defenses continue to focus on Gates, Green could continue to be the main beneficiary. A hamstring injury could force Green to miss San Diego's Week 4 matchup against Jacksonville, but when healthy, he could provide more production than Gates for a cheaper price at FantasyScore.

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) practiced in full Wednesday, Sept. 24.

Chargers | Antonio Gates held to one grab

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 18:39:54 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) was able to play in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills, but he was limited to just one reception for eight yards.

Fantasy Tip: Gates was a huge disappointment for fantasy owners after his huge start in the first two games. Don't fret despite the off game. He should rebound nicely against the leaky Jacksonville Jaguars pass defense in Week 4.

Chargers | Antonio Gates probable

Sat, 20 Sep 2014 15:17:48 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is probable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Gates ($6,600; 13.2% of your cap) is a decent play on FantasyScore this week. There is a lot of rain in the forecast in Buffalo Sunday, Sept. 21. This bodes well for Gates because the offense will likely run the ball a lot and use short-to-intermediate passing routes. Gates could be targeted heavily in the poor weather.

Chargers | Antonio Gates a limited participant

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 14:34:51 -0700

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good sign for Gates after not practicing Wednesday. He should be able to suit up in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills. It'll be tough to top his Week 2 production, but Gates ($6,600) still makes for a solid FantasyScore option as one of Philip Rivers' favorite targets.
