Chargers TE Antonio Gates seeking to scale back workload

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/15) Old Man River, otherwise known as Antonio Gates, has barely missed a beat well beyond the years in which most players have settled into their retirements. But Gates, who will turn 36 in June, is finally looking to lessen his workload next season.

Gates played 787 snaps in 2014, which ranked 17th at his position and proved far more than many younger tight ends. He was also more productive than nearly all of them with 69 catches for 821 yards and 12 touchdowns, the second-highest total of his career. But while promoting a boxing match in Detroit, he told Monday Morning Quarterback that he would like to scale it back in 2015.

"With injuries and whatnot, I played a little bit more than they expected me to play last season," he said. "I was playing the whole game. How I feel next year, it depends on how much volume they have me doing. I'd like to come in on third-and-7s, red zones, those situations. That's what my contribution is at anyway."

His plan would give young, athletic Ladarius Green a chance to emerge as the primary tight end for the Chargers. Green took a step back last year with just 19 receptions for 226 yards and no scores after racking up 376 yards and three touchdowns in 2013.

Antonio Gates expects to be back with Chargers in 2015

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/29/14) Although he will be 35 years old next season, tight end Antonio Gates expects to be back with the Chargers next year for his 13th season in the NFL. Gates is slated to make $5.9 million in 2015, which is the final year of a six-year, $40 million deal he signed in 2010.

"Yeah, I feel good," Gates said, per ESPN. "Obviously, when you finish a season, you’re going to have some soreness, with the wear and tear of an NFL season. But for the most part, I feel like I’m a Charger for life. That’s my gut feeling. I try to do everything to display that on the football field. 

"But I still understand that things happen. And you can control only what you control -- your attitude, your passion and how you go about your business. Those are the staples of who I am. I try to lead by example, and that’s what I’ll do this offseason."

Gates has played a full season two years in a row. He totaled 12 touchdowns in 2014, as well as totaling more than 800 receiving yards for a second straight season.

Chargers TE Gates snags four in Week 17 loss

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/28/14) A bad afternoon for the Chargers was a mediocre one for veteran tight end Antonio Gates.

Gates tried to put up some decent numbers in the loss to Kansas City that knocked his team out of the playoffs. He caught four passes for 67 yards. He was targeted six times.

Gates also became the 44th player in NFL history to amass 10,000 receiving yards in his career.

He ends the season with 69 receptions for 820 yards.

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.
