Summary

Tight End Rank: #16All Players: #198
Just when you thought Gates was done, he has another big season. Gates was third overall in fantasy scoring for tight ends. He had one of the better seasons of his career, finishing with 12 touchdowns and just over 800-receiving yards. Gates had nine games with 50-plus yards and scored touchdowns seven of 16 games. He also played a full season and has missed just a game the last three seasons, shedding his injury-prone label some. Gates is 35 years old, though, and you really have to wonder how much he has left in the tank. He has two straight seasons with 800-plus yards. Gates seems to have lost some of his speed but still does a great job of running routes and catching passes. He isn't the big-play threat of past years but can move the chains and do well in the red zone.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Gates is a bit of a risk at this stage of his career. He looked great last year, but he has a lot of wear and tear on his body and is getting up there in years. Consider him a low-end No. 1 tight end and expect a few more erratic games from Gates. He can get around 55 receptions for 700 yards and six or so touchdowns.
