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

*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.

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.
