Chargers | Tight ends to be issue for Chargers?

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 11:46:30 -0800

San Diego Chargers TEs Antonio Gates, Ladarius Green, David B. Johnson and John Phillips will all become free agents if they are not re-signed by March 9. Gates is expected to return, however.

Fantasy Tip: Re-signing Gates will be a big plus for the Chargers, and he'll remain in TE1 territory if/when he is re-signed. The depth behind him will be a problem if San Diego can't re-sign at least one of Green, Johnson or Phillips.

Chargers | Antonio Gates likely to return

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 22:36:53 -0800

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates is likely to return in 2016. Gates, who will turn 36 in June, has given no indications he's ready to retire.

Fantasy Tip: Gates had a 46-630-4 season while missing four games to suspension and one to injury. He's still a midrange TE1 option in fantasy.

Chargers | Antonio Gates finds end zone

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 22:19:06 -0800

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates posted three receptions for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Week 17 game against the Denver Broncos. He was targeted five times.

Fantasy Tip: It was a trying season for Gates, who started out with a four-game suspension and then deal with a few nagging injuries. He wrapped up his year with 56 catches, 630 yards and five scores, so he can still be very productive for fantasy owners.

Chargers | Antonio Gates totals 88 yards

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 20:23:51 -0800

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates posted six receptions for 88 yards in the Week 15 game against the Miami Dolphins. He was targeted nine times.

Fantasy Tip: Gates is finishing up strong, posting six receptions in each of his past three games and he has a total of 164 yards over the past two outings. Since he hasn't found the end zone since Nov. 29, he is considered a low-end TE1 in most fantasy formats, but he remains Top 10 at his position.

Chargers | Antonio Gates may extend career

Mon, 14 Dec 2015 10:38:29 -0800

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates said he will take some time this offseason to decide on his playing future but indicated that he is leaning toward playing in 2016. "I don't want to go out this kind of way," Gates said. "I don't want to go out as a loser. Winning is the way, ideally, you want to go out. … I want to make one more run at it, and then if it doesn't work, be like, 'OK.' That's just my feeling right now."

Fantasy Tip: Gates has missed some games this season but is still one of the better tight ends in the NFL. He has caught at least six passes in three of the last five games and has four touchdowns on the season. He will have a tough Week 15 matchup against the Miami Dolphins but could still be a starting option for owners.

Chargers | Antonio Gates leads team in receiving

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 21:07:20 -0800

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates posted six receptions for a team-high 76 yards in the Week 14 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Gates is one of the few NFL-caliber receiver options left for Philip Rivers. He remains a decent low-end TE in fantasy play, and might be the only San Diego player worth using at this point.

Chargers | Antonio Gates draws tough matchup

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 21:23:31 -0800

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates faces the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 14, and Gates finished with one catch for six yards against the Chiefs in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Kansas City has been tough on tight ends in general, and the Chiefs should be able to focus on shutting down Gates ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) once again with the Chargers missing multiple starters in the receiving corps. Spend your money elsewhere at FantasyScore.

Chargers | Antonio Gates scores twice

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 18:00:20 -0800

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates finished with four catches for 53 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-25 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Gates has topped 50 yards in five of his six games this year, and while injuries remain a concern, he is one of the better tight end options at FantasyScore when he does suit up.

Chargers | Probable status for three Chargers

Fri, 27 Nov 2015 13:53:24 -0800

San Diego Chargers TEs Antonio Gates (hip) and Ladarius Green (ankle) and WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder) are listed as probable for Week 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear how involved Floyd ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) will be in his first game back from a torn labrum, so it might be safe to steer clear of him this week. Gates ($6,800, 13.6%) and Green ($2,900, 5.8%) have a good matchup, but Green's value is minimal with Gates playing.

Chargers | Antonio Gates has full practice

Thu, 26 Nov 2015 13:38:00 -0800

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hip) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Barring a setback, Gates ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) should be active for the Week 12 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He grabbed 18 catches and found the end zone twice through his first two games of the season, but since, Gates has just 11 receptions for 131 yards without a score through three games. Even with a plus-matchup, Gates is pricey at FantasyScore, but he checks out as a mid- to low-end starting tight end in seasonal formats.
