Quick fantasy outlook: Antonio Gates was an undrafted free agent rookie in 2003. The next year, he was the #1 fantasy TE in football -- the first of three #1 finishes, and seven top-five finishes, in a row. He is now on the downside of his career, however. His top-five streak ended in 2011 with a #7 finish, and he slid further in 2012 to #12. Gates is still a strong threat in the red zone, but he's not as agile as he was earlier in his career, and he dropped more balls in the last couple years than he had in the past. Gates still has a lock on the starting tight end position in San Diego, but at this point in his career, it's hard to expect a great deal of improvement over last season. He's a borderline TE1-TE2.
