Gates snagged all seven of his targets and put up three scores in what was a vintage performance for the aging tight end. While he will most likely not get that kind of dominance for the rest of the season, he has proven that he will be a top five option. In Buffalo, Rivers will continue to spotlight him and find him in the red zone. He gets a score and 65 yards.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
It is hard to argue with what Gates is doing this year, he is on the TE1 radar as long as he continues to play at this high level.

Buffalo has allowed 16 catches to tight ends in the first 2 weeks and Gates is just cookin' right now.
 
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
Gates' play, and his pass targets, have rendered Ladarius Green moot and keep him very much on your radar early this year.
