Despite mixed returns over the past 2 years, ARI was the worst team against TEs last year, and their LBs are still awful in coverage. Get Gates in your lineup.
  
Tom Schriner

Big Ben loves finding Heath Miller on key passing downs and in the red zone. Expect a top ten day in week one for Miller.
*Falling Star* - Gates is now considered 50/50 after hurting himself during Saturday's pratctice. If he does play, Gates may have a chance at a red zone score as he takes on the worst defense against opposing tight ends a season ago.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Miller is a nice sleeper for week 1 with Browns focused on run game and Antonio Brown. Clearly a red-zone threat.
Gates is old but he's not dead. No Daryl Washington leaves the door open for a sneaky week 1.
