Several benefit from Keenan Allen's absence

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/14) With wide receiver Keenan Allen sidelined by a broken collarbone Week 16 at San Francisco, wide receiver Eddie Royal saw the biggest increase in targets for the Chargers. He led the team with 12, catching 10 passes for 94 yards. But wide receiver Malcom Floyd and tight end Antonio Gates saw an increase as well. Floyd's 10 were a season high. He caught four of them for 50 yards and a score. Gates' nine were tied for his second most this season. he caught two touchdown passes for the first time since Week 8.

For the most part, Gates has gone as quarterback Philip Rivers has gone this season, so maybe his resurgence was more a product of Rivers throwing for 356 yards and four scores than Allen's absence. Likewise, Floyd has been Rivers' downfield threat all season and has had games with similar numbers, even if the targets were less, so if you're going to add a player in Fantasy (not that you could add Gates, of course), it should probably be Royal.

Of course, the four touchdown passes were out of character for Rivers, at least going by recent weeks, so against one of the league's best pass defenses Week 17 at Kansas City, he's unlikely to repeat those numbers. And in that case, Royal's would likely suffer as well. It's not like Allen was consistently delivering for Fantasy owners, so maybe outside of deeper leagues, it's best to pass on Royal altogether.

Chargers TE Antonio Gates scores twice in Week 16 win

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/21/14) Chargers tight end Antonio Gates caught seven of his nine targets for 92 yards with two touchdowns in his team's 38-35 overtime win over the 49ers in Week 16.

Gates had a quiet first half but helped lead the charge to come back from a three-touchdown deficit. His first score was on a one-yard catch on third-and-goal that he juggled a bit, but he was able to hang on while taking a hit at the goal line. His second score was on a wide-open 21-yard reception in the fourth quarter to bring his team to within one touchdown.

It was the fourth multiscore game of the season for Gates, who is now up to 65 receptions, 754 yards and 12 touchdowns on the season. He'll match up with the Chiefs in Week 17.

Chargers' Antonio Gates catches 70th touchdown from Rivers

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/14/14) While Chargers tight end Antonio Gates was able to reach the end zone, it was not enough to defeat the Broncos Sunday.

Gates was able to hook up with quarterback Philip Rivers for their 70th touchdown reception, but the Chargers lost 22-10. The 70th touchdown pass between the pair came on a 5-yard pass in third quarter. It was the first time Gates was able to reach the end zone since Oct. 23 against the Broncos.

The Chargers next play Saturday at Kansas City.

Malcom Floyd leads quiet Chargers receiving night vs. Patriots

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/8/14) Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd caught three of his six targets for a team-high 54 yards and one touchdown in his team's 23-14 loss to the Patriots in Week 14.

Floyd made an excellent play on a slightly overthrown ball after beating his man early in the second quarter, hauling in a 15-yard touchdown to put the Chargers ahead for the first time Sunday. They would maintain that lead until the fourth quarter, where they surrendered 10 points and took the loss.

Running back Donald Brown and tight end Antonio Gates shared the team lead in receptions, with both players hauling in five passes. Brown gained 49 yards on six targets while Gates managed just 34 yards on eight targets. Eddie Royal caught just two of his five targets for 30 yards, while nominal No. 1 receiver Keenan Allen was held to three yards on two receptions.

The Chargers will certainly be looking for a better effort by the passing game in the team's Week 15 matchup with the Broncos.

Antonio Gates shows signs of improvement

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/30/14) Chargers tight end Antonio Gates broke out of his slump in Week 13, with his best performance in four weeks in a 34-33 win over the Ravens.

Gates, who had been targeted just 10 times in the team's previous three games, had eight passes thrown his way Saturday. He hauled in seven of those passes for 83 yards, his best yardage total since Week 2 and second best of the season.

Gates has continued to defy aging, but production has come with more fits and starts this season than in the past. The Chargers spread the ball around too much for Gates to put up huge numbers on a weekly basis, but he is still involved enough to be worth a look most weeks, given how weak the tight end spot is for most Fantasy owners.
