Summary

Antonio Gates will be 36 this season, but he has yet to fade from fantasy relevance. Despite missing five games (four due to suspension, one due to injury) and playing through a sprained knee for most of the rest of the 2015 season, he finished as the 11th best fantasy tight end -- the twelfth season in a row that he has been a worthwhile fantasy starter in twelve-team leagues. There's no guarantee that that streak will continue, however. The Chargers drafted TE Hunter Henry early in the second round this offseason, and there's some speculation that Henry's superiority as a blocker may earn him more snaps than Gates as early as this season. Gates will assuredly be on the field on passing downs, however, and he is always a threat around the goal line. Consider him a borderline fantasy TE1-TE2 heading into the season. (May 19)
