Antonio Gates is another option you can wait for despite his pedigree due to the Ladarius Green hype train.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
I get that Green is a stud in the making, but Gates' ADP is disgusting. His value is insane right now.
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
There are a couple things that pop out to us when analyzing Antonio Gates for 2014 … Number 1: Head Coach – Mike McCoy transitioned the offense from a quick-hitting passing attack to a more heavy run offense, as Rivers threw for 30+ Passing Attempts only once in the final six games of the season. Number 2: Ladarius Green – See below 2 inches. Green played on 59.7% of the Chargers’ offensive snaps over the final 7 games of last year, but stayed in to block 60.5% of the time. The Chargers continuously report that Green is taking more steps in his developmental process and will be a larger part of the offense in 2014. Number 3: Over the final 8 Games in 2013, Gates averaged 3.6 Receptions Per Game. As the season wore on, Gates’ production dwindled to dismal levels than that of where he was to begin the season. Ultimately: Due to the run heavy offense, consistent injury history, position competition within San Diego, age and dwindling production – we view Gates as a solid back-up TE for fantasy managers in 2014.
 
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
He will continue to lose work do Green, but he can be a bye week filler.
 
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
I get the excitement about Ladarius Green, but at least at this early stage of the offseason I'm not ready to ignore a productive season from the slow-footed, sure-handed Gates.
 
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Just one double-digit fantasy game from weeks 12-17 last year. The mighty have fallen.
 
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Perhaps two TEs can post good stats in SD offense, but his time is running out.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The days of Gates being a monster tight end in fantasy appear to be over. He is a Hall of Fame player, but he is past his prime and I think this is the year that Ladarius Green emerges as the top tight end in San Diego. Over the last eight games of last season (including playoffs), Gates managed a meager 3 receptions for 27.8 yards per game with only one touchdown.
 
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
The old man still produces by getting 872 yards and four scores a year ago. There is always questions regarding his ability to stay healthy and now there is a breakout star in the making in Ladarius Green behind him on the depth chart. His numbers should diminish a bit, but he is still worthy of a roster spot.
