Antonio Gates with four catches in season finale

Antonio Gates caught four of six targets for 46 yards on Sunday against the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

Gates stepped up when Hunter Henry went down for the season, showing that he can still make an impact when given the workload. Gates has stated that he does not intend to retire, but it's unclear if there will be a role for him with Los Angeles next year.

Antonio Gates scores a touchdown against the Jets

Antonio Gates caught six of eight targets for 81 yards and a touchdown on Sunday against the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

This was the second consecutive game with a touchdown for Gates, as he has filled in nicely with Hunter Henry out for the season. He's an elite red zone threat, and should be considered a starting option next weekend against the Raiders.

Antonio Gates shows up with a Week 15 touchdown

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Antonio Gates came up with a 10-yard touchdown catch in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

Gates was targeted three times, but only caught the one. He made it count though, making his grab in the end zone. Gates will wrap up his final NFL season over the next two weeks, but he won't be a fantasy option.

Antonio Gates barely there in Week 6

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Antonio Gates was only targeted once in Sunday's victory over the Oakland Raiders. He came up with the catch for a 16 yard gain.

Fantasy Impact

Gates was almost invisible in this one, seeing just one ball come his way. With Hunter Henry playing well, it's hard to see Gates returning to any kind of fantasy relevance this season. He shouldn't be owned outside of the deepest formats.

Antonio Gates disappoints again in Week 5

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Antonio Gates had another disappointing performance on Sunday, catching just two passes for 23 yards.

Fantasy Impact

It was an excellent matchup for Gates, and he was unable to take advantage of it. Meanwhile, Hunter Henry had a solid game and may be gaining on Gates for more and more snaps each game. Gates will be in the Hall of Fame the second he is eligible, but that does not mean he should be in fantasy lineups in 2017.
