Recent Player News

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 6:14pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates caught two passes for 11 yards and a touchdown in a 19-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 2, setting the NFL record for most touchdown receptions by a tight end with 112.

    Huddle Up: Gates has just four catches for 28 yards in the first two games. He could continue to be a presence in red zone, but he doesn't see enough targets to make a consistent impact. He can be left on the waiver wire.

  • Posted: 7/11/2017 7:22pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TEs Antonio Gates (18) and Hunter Henry (16) ranked second and in a tie for third, respectively, in the league among tight ends in red zone targets. Both Gates and Henry were tied for second among all tight ends with seven targets inside the 10.

    Huddle Up: While owners should not look for a repeat of these high-target numbers from either player given how many quality options the Chargers have at receiver now, Philip Rivers has long enjoyed throwing to his tight ends. However, Henry is in danger of being over-drafted this summer given his likely unsustainable touchdown rate of 4.5 (eight scores on 36 catches). Owners should view him more as a high-upside TE2 who will miss out on some red zone production because of Gates.

  • Posted: 5/30/2017 9:16am ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry is expected to move into the role of team's main tight end, while veteran TE Antonio Gates will transition into more of a third-down, red zone role, according to ESPN's Eric D Williams.

    Huddle Up: The Chargers basically said as much back in December, so this should not come as a surprise. Although this changing of the guard should mean Henry ascends quickly into high-end TE1 territory, the Chargers may have too many weapons for their own good to allow that to happen. As a result, Henry may only be in line for a slight increase over last year's 36 receptions, 478 yards and eight touchdowns, leaving him on the lower end of the TE1 pool.

  • Posted: 12/31/2016 3:29pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Hunter Henry will be the team's featured tight end next season regardless of whether or not Antonio Gates returns for a 15th season.

    Huddle Up: Jaded owners of Henry could be asking why this passing of the torch didn't take place on or before Week 16, when the rookie wasn't even targeted in a loss to the Cleveland Browns. With that said, Henry is able to create separation and clearly looked like the better player the few times both were healthy. Expect the 2016 second-round pick to be a solid midrange TE1 in 2017.

  • Posted: 12/28/2016 10:42pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates indicated Wednesday, Dec. 28, that he might play one more season in 2017. 'This is not the way I expected to be done. I'm definitely leaning toward coming back,' Gates said.

    Huddle Up: Gates current has his lowest yardage total (493) since his rookie season of 2003 while finding the end zone six times. He has at least four touchdowns in each of his past 13 season, and would be a low-end TE1 in deeper fantasy leagues in 2017.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 2:13pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates posted game highs with eight receptions and 94 yards on 13 targets in the Week 16 game against the Cleveland Browns. He also scored a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Gates' catch total and yardage total, as well as his targets, were all season highs. It's uncertain how much longer he will play, but this is an outstanding performance for fantasy owners who trusted him with the favorable matchup.

  • Posted: 12/11/2016 2:58pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates caught five passes for 61 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Gates has been targeted at least nine times in five of his last seven games but has at least 50 yards in only three of those games. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end against the Raiders next week.

  • Posted: 11/27/2016 9:20pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates did not have any catches and he was not even targeted in the Week 12 game against the Houston Texans, snapping his 77-game streak with at least one reception.

    Huddle Up: It was an ugly goose egg for fantasy owners relying upon Gates as a low-end TE1. There was no report of any injury, but if an update comes out we'll have it for you. He'll look to rebound in Week 14.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 7:29pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates posted four receptions for 63 yards with a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Miami Dolphins. He was targeted nine times.

    Huddle Up: Gates was on the injury report with a knee this week, but when it was game time he showed no ill effects of the injury. People keep trying to write Gates off and all he does is produce. However, he won't be producing anything in Week 11 with the team on a bye.

  • Posted: 11/11/2016 3:55pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (knee) practiced in full again Friday, Nov. 11, and he is expected to start in the Week 10 game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Gates is looking to visit the end zone for a third straight week when Miami comes calling. He remains a decent low-end TE1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Posted: 11/10/2016 1:43pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

    Huddle Up: Gates has officially taken back his place as the starting tight end for the Chargers. While he looks sluggish and over the hill at times, he should still be started as a TE1 this week.

  • Posted: 11/6/2016 10:45pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates posted five receptions for a game-high 75 yards and a touchdown on nine targets in the Week 9 game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Gates continues to produce, and he was especially strong in this one with Hunter Henry on the mend. Gates remains a low-end TE1 heading into Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 8:39pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates posted four grabs for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the Denver Broncos. He was targeted nine times.

    Huddle Up: People keep trying to write off Gates and all he does is produce. Sure, he isn't a top-flight fantasy option these days, but he remains a useful low-end TE1 in most formats.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 10:53pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates posted a season-high five receptions for 38 yards on 10 targets in the Week 7 game against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Gates has been bothered by a hamstring injury, and he hasn't posted more than 38 yards receiving in any of his five outings. Avoid him in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues until he starts to produce more consistent results.

  • Posted: 10/17/2016 9:55pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) said Monday, Oct. 17, that he is not 100 percent healthy. 'It's very difficult when you're constantly playing on it,' Gates said. 'This is new for me, to be dealing with a hamstring. So I'm learning a lot about it.'

    Huddle Up: With Gates laboring, rookie Hunter Henry has seen a bigger role in the San Diego offense and he is flourishing. Gates is only worth using in deeper fantasy leagues, while Henry is worth using in all leagues of 12 or more teams while running hot.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 12:37pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is officially active for the team's Week 5 game.

    Huddle Up: Gates has missed the last few games because of the injury and could see limited snaps in Week 5. He will be a risky option for most fantasy owners and could stay on the bench if owners have better options to use.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 6:17am ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is expected to be active for Week 5's game against the Oakland Raiders, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Gates was a full participant in practice Friday, Oct. 7, and had been a limited participant in the two sessions held earlier in the week. However, it is uncertain how many snaps he will see in Sunday's game, especially given how well TE Hunter Henry performed in his absence. Avoid using Gates in daily fantasy contests this week, as well as seasonal formats where safer options are available.

  • Posted: 10/7/2016 5:47pm ET

    Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 7, and is listed as questionable for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Gates may be a game-time decision, so owners will need to check the inactive list. Gates will be a risky option for owners because he has missed the last two weeks and hamstring injuries can linger. Owners should consider benching Gates if they have better options.

  • Posted: 10/7/2016 3:02pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is leaning toward 'giving it a go' in Week 5 versus the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: While this is good news in terms of his possible return to full-time snaps next week, owners should expect him to be very limited this week. Hunter Henry is the better fantasy play this week, although Gates' probably return does remove some of the luster from this plus-matchup. With San Diego playing Denver on Thursday next week, expect to see more Gates in that game, assuming he doesn't have a setback Sunday.

  • Posted: 10/6/2016 3:45pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 6.

    Huddle Up: Gates may be a true game-time decision for Week 5. If he can't play or is limited at all then Hunter Henry will continue to be more of a factor in the passing game. If Gates is ruled out then Henry becomes a low-end TE1.

  • Posted: 10/5/2016 7:02pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Gates has been sidelined with a hamstring injury and should be reserved in all fantasy leagues until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks. Rookie Hunter Henry would make another start if Gates still cannot go in Week 5.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 12:54pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 4 game.

    Huddle Up: Hunter Henry will start at tight end in place of Gates and should be an attractive option for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 9/30/2016 1:07pm ET

    Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: It appears that Gates will miss at least one more week because of his injury. Hunter Henry will receive most of the playing time at tight end and should be an attractive starting option in deeper leagues since he should receive targets during the game.

  • Posted: 9/30/2016 11:36am ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is expected to miss his second straight game in Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Gates was given a three-week timeline after his diagnosis and it looks like that will be the case. Hunter Henry played every offensive snap in Week 3 and fared well. The rookie gets another soft matchup this week and is a high-upside play at home against one of the worst defenses in the league.

  • Posted: 9/29/2016 12:15pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is not participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Gates probably will miss at least one more game because his injury, but owners should continue to monitor the situation. Hunter Henry would start again if Gates is ruled out and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues after a solid 76-yard performance in Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 10:50am ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) 'wasn't close' to playing in Week 3 versus the Indianapolis Colts and is likely to miss Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints, according to Michael Gehlken of The San Diego Union-Tribune.

    Huddle Up: Hunter Henry played all 59 snaps versus the Colts and fared well outside of a late fourth-quarter fumble that squashed any chance of a rally, finishing with five catches for 76 yards. It appears the rookie could be in for another busy day at the office in a plus-matchup at home versus New Orleans next week.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 1:15pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) has been declared inactive for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Hunter Henry will start at tight end and should have a solid role in the passing game in Week 3. He could be a decent option in daily fantasy leagues and can be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 9/23/2016 11:59am ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) has yet to practice this week and has been all but ruled out for Week 3 versus the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: ESPN reported earlier Friday that Gates has been told he will need two to three weeks to recover, so owners should prepare for a multi-week absence from the veteran tight end. Rookie Hunter Henry will draw his first start as a result, but he's a weak streaming option even in a favorable matchup this week.

  • Posted: 9/22/2016 11:23am ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is not participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

    Huddle Up: Gates' availability for Week 3 is uncertain at this point, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation over the next few days. He would have a decent matchup if he plays, but owners may want to use other options in their lineup.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 10:39pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) is uncertain for Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts, as he is battling a hamstring injury. If Gates is limited or inactive, TE Hunter Henry would likely see more involvement in the offense with TE Sean McGrath in a backup role.

    Huddle Up: Gates is a strong fantasy play if he is declared healthy to play, as the Colts secondary is dinged up and susceptible to big play through the air.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 5:18pm ET

    San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Gates is in danger of missing Week 3. He has caught six passes for only 35 yards in the first two games but should be a focal point of the passing game with Keenan Allen and Danny Woodhead out for the season. He should still be a solid starting option in most fantasy leagues.
