From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 24): Gates had more fantasy points in Week 8 than he did in the last three games combined. Ladarius Green made a few plays against St. Louis, and it is certainly possible that the grind of the season is taking its toll on the future hall of famer. It isn't like we have many great choices at tight end, but Gates might not be one of them for the fantasy playoffs.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 11 vs OAK (3 / 3 / 32 / 0 rec)

Gates was quiet for about 90% of the game, but he rose to the occasion when the moment caleld for it. Facing a 3rd and 3 late in the game and the Chargers trying to run out the clock, Rivers targeted a double-covered Gates down the field. First he had the wherewithall to deflect the ball away from the first defender. Then after deflecting it up in the air, he managed to maintain his concentration enough to get his hands back on the ball and wrestle it away from the other defender as well. It was an enormous catch to convert the first down and keep the chains moving, enabling the Chargers to run the clock way down.

2014 Week 12 vs STL (2 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)

Gates was almost non-existent in this game, as the Chargers rarely looked in his direction. Even when they got near the goal line, his specialty, he didn't receive any looks. His first reception didn't come until around the 1:30 mark left in the first half going for for four yards, and his only other reception went for ten. It was a bit curious that he wasn't more involved considering the gameplan called for a heavy dose of the short passing game, but Gates never really appeared to be open either and Rivers had no need to force the action.
