|'Very personal situation' keeps Antonio Gates from minicamp |
|by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(6/18/14) Chargers coach Mike McCoy said Tuesday that veteran tight end Antonio Gates wouldn't be at minicamp this week as he tends to a "very personal situation" in his hometown of Detroit. The Union-Tribune of San Diego reports that Gates hasn't been with the team at any practice open to the media this offseason.
"You tell him you love him, support him and you're with him," quarterback Philip Rivers said. " ... When the time is right and everything is taken care of, he'll be back. We look forward to getting him back."
Ladarius Green took the first-team reps in his place.

(1/12/14) Chargers tight end Antonio Gates caught two passes for 10 yards in the playoff loss at Denver. He was targeted four times.
Fellow tight end Ladarius Green caught two of his three targets for 7 yards, dropping a perfect throw that would have converted a key third down.
Gates, 33, is scheduled to return in 2014 at a $5 million base salary, while Green is slated to earn $570,000.
|Chargers offensive studs fizzle against Bengals |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(1/5/14) The Chargers didn't need their normal output from their offensive stars to pull off a victory against the Bengals.
Eddie Royal was the most successful of the bunch, catching one pass for 33 yards. Keenan Allen managed to catch two balls, but only gained 21 yards. Antonio Gates was well-covered by the Bengals, and caught just one pass for 5 yards. The Chargers did not rely on the passing game, which meant none of their pass catchers had big games. Each player will look to rebound next week against Denver.
|Antonio Gates seeking bounce-back against Bengals |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(1/3/14) Chargers tight end Antonio Gates is hoping for vindication Sunday when his team plays at Cincinnati in a first-round playoff battle. His performance in Week 13 against the visiting Bengals left much to be desired.
Gates fumbled once and had another pass stripped from him for an interception in the 17-10 defeat. He managed just five catches for 41 yards.
"You've got to learn from it," he told the team website. "I've gone back and looked at the film since we're playing them, and they made some phenomenal plays. But that's not who I am and not what we stand for offensively. We hang our hats on protecting the football and that's something that I've always been a part of since I've been here."
Gates is coming off his most productive regular season since 2009, though his touchdowns were down. He caught 77 passes for 872 yards and four scores.
|Both Chargers tight ends find end zone |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(12/29/13) Chargers tight ends Antonio Gates and Ladarius Green each scored a touchdown in the Week 17 win over the Chiefs. Green caught a 22-yard touchdown in the first quarter, his only reception, while Gates hauled in a 4-yard score in the second.
Gates caught four of five targets for 31 yards while making his 60th touchdown reception from Philip Rivers. That's the most by any quarterback-tight end combo in NFL history. Gates ends the season with 77 catches for 872 yards and four touchdowns, but the 33-year-old seemed to fade down the stretch.
Green is a rising 23-year-old talent who made 17 grabs for 376 yards and three touchdowns.
|Antonio Gates appears to be at the end of his line as a starting Fantasy tight end. He had a down year in 2013 with 77 catches for 872 yards and four touchdowns, which was his lowest total since his rookie season in 2003. At 34, his best days are behind him, and the Chargers will likely increase the playing time for Ladarius Green, which should further cut into Gates' production. Now, if Gates can get back to scoring at least seven touchdowns, which he did from 2004-12, with his catches and yards from last season then he would regain some value in most Fantasy leagues. But after watching him play last year, and seeing the upside with Green, it's hard to count on Gates as a must-start option. At best, plan on drafting Gates with a late-round pick in the majority of leagues, but he's best suited to be a bye-week or injury replacement. If Gates starts off the season playing well then add him off waivers, and we hope he can prove us wrong and return as a No. 1 option in all leagues.
