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
FFLockerRoom
*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
Gates is old but he's not dead. No Daryl Washington leaves the door open for a sneaky week 1.
No Welker opens the door to 2 TE sets and/or Tamme in the slot a bit. Not sold on it, but there is potential for a role.
