Bates Shows Promise Despite Lack Of Endzone Action In Week 2 Victory

John Bates, the 25-year-old tight end for the Washington Commanders, put up a solid performance in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos, despite not finding the endzone.

Fantasy Impact

Bates was targeted five times, hauling in three receptions for 46 yards. His longest reception, a 35-yarder late in the second quarter, showcased his ability to stretch the field. While he didn't manage to score, his contribution was instrumental in the Commanders' narrow 35-33 victory. Bates's performance places him at TE20 for the week and TE32 for the season, showing a steady presence in the Commanders' passing game. Looking ahead to Week 3, Bates and the Commanders will face off against the Buffalo Bills, where he'll look to continue his upward trajectory, especially if Logan Thomas (concussion) misses time.
