Gathers suffered a concussion in the 2017 preseason.

Week 12: vs Los Angeles Chargers

All TE vs LAC

FBG says: Bad matchup. Each week we continue to discuss the "Sophmore Slump" of Dak Prescott and early on in the season even mentioned that his touchdowns were the saving grace of his season, those touchdowns have now ceased to exist. In three of his last four games, Prescott has failed to throw a touchdown and has failed to go over 176 yards. The problem for the Cowboys is that outside of Dez Bryant, the offense has now playmakers now that Ezekiel Elliott is suspended. The Cowboys are in a really tough spot this week going up against one of the best secondaries in football in the Chargers. The Chargers who are eight in terms of passing yardage allowed at just 209.8 yards are also 7th in terms of the fewest touchdowns allowed this season which is a very difficult combination. Casey Hayward who might be the best cornerback in football this season should be following Dez Bryant everywhere he goes this week, and the other two cornerbacks Trevor Williams and rookie Desmond King have both been playing at a high level this season. The Chargers also rate as the second best in terms of fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends which should cause problems for Jason Witten who is looking like he is on his last legs of his NFL career after a great start to the season.
