Summary

Antonio Gates joined the league as an undrafted free agent in 2003. He came off the bench as a rookie, but in his 11 years as a starter, he's been a top-three fantasy tight end seven times, including last season when he finished #2 in non-PPR leagues. Gates was never a great blocker, and he's gotten worse in recent years, so he's come off the field more often on early downs. But that hasn't hurt his receiving production: if anything, it's kept him fresher over the course of the season. The main concern heading into 2015 is that Gates has been suspended for the first four games, which will give Ladarius Green a chance to show his stuff and possibly claim a permanent role as a starter. Gates will still have a role from Week Five on since he is still one of the top five receivers on the team; but the role could be significantly smaller than it was last season. (July 2)
