I thought Gates would start to decline in 2014, instead he was the second ranked fantasy tight end with 69 receptions for 821 yards and 12 receiving touchdowns. I am not going to make the same mistake in 2015, he should maintain TE1 value this year.

Coming off a top 2 finish thanks to his continued red zone prowess.

Typically has a couple of good outings a year; good luck figuring out when.

He likely won't put up the numbers he did in 2014, but Gates is still a very solid TE1

- Huseyin Aksu, Fantasy Couch

 
Gates will go undervalued in drafts again but the savvy owner will scoop him up at the right time. He'll be a top-ten TE as long as he and Philip Rivers are both healthy.

Proved last year he's not dead yet but he could easily drop off in 2015. Always a risk but if you can get him late he's still a solid TE1
