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.

Antonio Gates picks up 18 yards in Week 4

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Antonio Gates picked up just 18 yards in Week 4, catching three passes.

Fantasy Impact

Despite it only being 18 yards, this was a season high for Gates. With Hunter Henry showing he's a much better option at this point, it shouldn't be too long before Gates cedes even more snaps to the younger tight end. The era of Gates as a fantasy impact-maker seem to be long over.

Antonio Gates catches just two passes in Week 3

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Antonio Gates caught just 2-of-5 targets in Week 3. He gained 30 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Gates did not have much of an impact in this game, and unfortunately he'll likely have more games like this one. He's a touchdown-dependent fantasy option and should only be started as a last-minute replacement.

Antonio Gates catches only two balls, but one is a touchdown

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Antonio Gates caught two of his four targets in Sunday's Week 2 loss for 11 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

It would have been another wasted fantasy day for the veteran tight end, but the touchdown at least made it a decent output. Gates looks even more done than he did last season, and he'll be hard to trust in fantasy lineups going forward.
