With Rob Gronkowski out, Tom Brady will have to look to someone besides Danny Amendola in the passing game. And in their Week 3 preseason game Brady targeted Thompkins 12 times with him catching 8 of those for over 100 yards.

Good matchup and he's looked great. Could be very solid to start the year.Texans not the best matchup and Gates isn't what he used to be, so he's just outside the top 10.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Thompkins has been one of the rookie stars of the preseason and I think he keeps that going against the Bills this week.I am not a big fan of Gates this year, but he has the match up playing against a Texans D that was just 29th against fantasy tight ends last year.

 Tough match up for the Chargers but the Texans did give up a league leading 11 TD's to the TE in 2012  
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
Thompkins, at the age of 18, was arrested 7 times in a 3 year span. Former Liberty City – Miami, Florida native has all the talent in the world, but if this former Cincinatti Wideout can control himself in the NFL he’ll be something special. Dobson and Thompkins are both battling a receiving spot and Thompkins is leading the role for the “X” spot in New England.Last season was a disappointing year for Gates, but he managed to reel in 7 TDs. With the loss of their number one WR – Denario Alexander, Gates will once again remain the most consistent option in San Diego. At 33 years old, Gates used this off-season to shed some pounds and add muscle. I would expect 800 yards and 7-8 TDs from Gates this season in San Dieeeaaaggoo …

 The Chargers failed to improve their horrible offensiveline. Which likely means Gates will be blocking more often than you want. Still Antonio should be able to take advantage of the middle with Vincent Brown and DNX "Ride or Die" pulling safties 40 Yards down the field.
