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.

12 carries for 36 yards (3.0ypc) would actually be an upgrade on his preseason production.

There is not a ton of upside here so if you have a solid player on the bench then it is advised you go with them in Week 1.

*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.

Gates is old but he's not dead. No Daryl Washington leaves the door open for a sneaky week 1.

T-Rich could have life still but against a tough Broncos run D on the road? I'm not betting on a huge day.
