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.

Antonio Gates ties Tony Gonzalez for most TD catches by a tight end

Antonio Gates caught five of eight targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 against the Chiefs. It was Gates' 111th touchdown reception, tying him with Tony Gonzalez for the most touchdown receptions by a tight end in NFL history.

Fantasy Impact

Gates is an all-time great, but he had a poor season, totaling just 548 receiving yards. Gates did manage to score seven touchdowns, however, showing that he is still an elite red zone threat. With Hunter Henry emerging, it's unclear how big of a role Gates would play in 2017 if he does return. Either way, he's not on the fantasy radar at this point.
