Gates looked done to me last season, but he can still catch a touchdown pass when the ball is forced to him. I'm hoping he takes a back seat to Hunter Henry this year, but even if he doesn't, he's just not good enough anymore.Cook has a wide range of outcomes in this offense. Seth Roberts had 21 red-zone targets for the Raiders last season, which is insane, and Cook could easily see a chunk of those.
Kevin Roberts

I'm not sure how reduced his role will be, but he can still play and the Bolts love him so a split TE role in L.A. can't be ruled out.

Gates will see fewer snaps and targets this season but his red zone presence will be felt. Auction Value $3 Cook is with a new team; the results will likely be the same. More underachieving.

FantasyPros
If there is one thing we know about this offense, it is that Gates will continue to see the ball in the red zone. Last season, his 18 targets within the 20 were among the top 12 in football despite him seeing less than 100 overall. Until he retires, he will have fantasy relevancy.  
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
I'll be the first to admit that we all might have the 37-year-old Gates too low on our lists, but everything is going against him here. They not only drafted his replacement Hunter Henry last year, but he proved to be ready to take over the main role. Gates is likely coming back to secure the all-time record for touchdowns among tight ends, as he needs just one more to break the record.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Gates will have some fantasy appeal as a red zone tight end, but TE Hunter Henry is going to be the starter and see the bulk of the work at tight end. Cook is now with the Oakland Raiders, he has a chance to have TE2 value with upside if he sees enough targets.
