2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Ever since he joined the team back in 2003, Antonio Gates has been one of the most productive fantasy tight ends in all of football. In fact, Gates was one of the first players at the position who started to give credence to the idea that a tight end could be a first round fantasy selection. Of course, those days are long in the past for Gates, but at age 36, he is still very much an option for fantasy owners. Gates missed the first four games of the 2015 season due to a drug suspension, but still finished as the No. 11 fantasy tight end on the season as he caught 56 passes for 630 yards and five touchdowns. His 8.5 fantasy points per game were good enough for seventh at the position.

Tight end is very top-heavy this season, but even in his old age, Gates presents substantially less downside than most of the other tight ends being selected around him. He’s barely being drafted as a starter in most leagues and could even be selected as a backup in some formats. At that price tag, it’d be hard to miss with Gates. Even if the wheels finally do come off, it shouldn’t cost fantasy owners much with him being selected so late in drafts.

News From The Past 90 Days
Hunter Henry trending upward
HC: "I think he can do it all"
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 22, 5:45 pm

San Diego Chargers
Mike McCoy: Hunter Henry "had another great one-handed grab in practice today." Has impressed as blocker, but "I think Hunter can do it all." (Michael Gehlken on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: And yet, the rookie has one catch for 20 yards on two targets despite playing 69 offensive snaps through two weeks. Henry may become a popular streamer selection if Antonio Gates is ruled out or limited in any way against the Colts, but he is a longshot to realize much fantasy value in Week 3 as he'll still have to fight Travis Benjamin, Tyrell Williams, Melvin Gordon and possibly even Dexter McCluster for targets.


Injury Keenan Allen out for season
Suffered torn ACL, minor cartilage damage in Week 1 loss
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 12, 6:10 pm

San Diego Chargers
Chargers coach Mike McCoy confirmed that receiver Keenan Allen suffered an ACL tear in his right knee and is done for the year after the team received results from an MRI on Monday. The Chargers will place Allen on injured reserve, and use his vacant roster spot to activate rookie defensive end Joey Bosa from the exempt list. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Allen also suffered some minor cartilage damage in addition to the ACL tear. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Less than one year after suffering a lacerated kidney, Allen is getting hit with another major injury. While Antonio Gates and Danny Woodhead should be locked into their respective TE1 and high-end RB2 designations in PPR leagues with the likely bump in volume they are about to receive, San Diego will also expand Travis Benjamin's role. The Chargers also love Tyrell Williams, and he could be the one that ends up replacing Allen as a starter. Williams is worth a speculative add in all leagues.
