Summary

Tight End Rank: #23All Players: #136
Gates returned to his productive ways last season, having his best season since '09. He looked much better than recent years, probably because the Chargers new offense did a good job of utilizing him. He did score just four touchdowns, which was disappointing, but Gates had 77 receptions and nearly 900 yards. He had multiple receptions every game and at least four catches 12 of 16 games. Gates is 34 years old and has a history of injury but remains the top tight end in this offense. He could get a few less targets at tight end with an emerging Ladarius Green. Gates remains a tough cover at tight end, though. He has plus speed for the position, great hands and seems to always put himself in position to make the catch.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Gates had a great year last season but don't be surprised if his numbers suffer some this year. Consider him a low-end No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy tight end. His best days are behind him. We could see a season with around 65 receptions for 700 yards and six touchdowns.

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates is set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2016. He will carry an estimated salary-cap charge of $8.262 million in 2015 and leave the Chargers on the hook for $2.362 million in dead money, should they choose to release Gates. Cutting him will save the team $5.9 million against their 2015 cap. Gates will be 35 years old entering the 2015 season, and the Chargers reportedly want to increase TE Ladarius Green's role in 2014.
