Recent Player News

  • Posted: 1/4/2018 6:39pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates' future with the team is currently undecided, general manager Tom Telesco said Thursday, Jan. 4.

    Huddle Up: Gates took a backseat to Hunter Henry for much of this season, and if he ends up returning to the Chargers in 2018, he'll be a touchdown-dependent TE2.

  • Posted: 12/31/2017 7:26pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates will be a free agent after the season, but he said he still has 'the juice' and would like to play in 2018.

    Huddle Up: Gates closed the year with a couple of solid outings, but if he does play somewhere in 2018, he will be a touchdown-dependent TE2.

  • Posted: 12/29/2017 7:20pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates (illness) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 29, and he was removed from the Week 17 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Gates finished with six catches for 81 yards and a touchdown in Week 16, and with Hunter Henry out for the year, Gates is a TE1 candidate again in the finale.

  • Posted: 12/28/2017 4:49pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates (illness) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: Gates is a late addition to the injury report, since he was fine on Wednesday, but since it's only an illness, he should be out there on Sunday for the season finale. This also could very well be his final NFL game, as there are rumors of retirement for the 15-year veteran, so although he's one of the more volatile options at his position in fantasy, he's worth a roll of the dice, especially while he's hauled in a score in consecutive ballgames.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 2:23pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates caught six passes for 81 yards and one touchdown against the New York Jets in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Gates is back in the starting lineup because of Hunter Henry's injury and was very productive in the passing game. He has a chance to be a No. 1 fantasy tight end in deeper leagues next week against the Oakland Raiders.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 8:23pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates posted just one grab for four yards on his only target in Week 7 against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Gates is clearly well behind Hunter Henry now and he is playing out the final days of his illustrious career. It's sad to see a former fantasy stud put out to pasture, but he is best left to the waiver wire in most formats these days.

  • Posted: 10/20/2017 9:32pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry has seen 15 targets over the last two games compared to four targets for TE Antonio Gates. Gates was targeted 17 times and Henry 10 times over the first four games.

    Huddle Up: Now that Gates has the touchdown record for tight ends, it looks like the Chargers are featuring Henry. He looks like a TE1 going forward.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 6:30pm ET

    Los Angeles Chargers TE Antonio Gates posted two receptions for 30 yards on five targets in the Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Gates didn't do much, but at least he wasn't blanked like Hunter Henry. The veteran Gates shouldn't be relied upon as a regular fantasy contributor at this point of his career, but it appears Henry isn't quite ready to take the torch just yet.

  • 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.
