Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 5 vs OAK (2 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)

Gates had just two grabs in the game, one of which went for 16 yards to convert a key third down and long play. He also drew a penalty late in the game when he was seen mixing it up with an Oakland defender at the end of a play.

2018 Week 3 vs LAR (5 / 3 / 45 / 0 rec)

The big tight end had his best game of the season, and was the clear go-to guy at the tight end spot ahead of Virgil Green. He got open near the sideline on a long first half reception that went for 27 yards. He withstood a big hit from the defender and shook it off as if it was a minor nuisance, before rumbling downfield after the catch to turn a decent gain into a big pickup. He showed excellent hands in the second half by snagging a low throw from Rivers over the middle, shielding the defender with his body and then working up the field for a 14-yard gain. And again he showed nice hands on a third down pass play from Rivers where he was hit in stride. He was targeted in the end zone, but the pass was thrown too high over his head to make a play on it. Gates won't return to his glory days anytime soon, but he showed in this game that he can still be a factor at times.

2018 Week 2 vs BUF (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Gates was used sparingly, and only had one chance at an impact play. He was targeted on a third down pass play near the goal line, but Philip Rivers sailed the pass too far over his head for an incompletion, and the coverage was solid anyway. Gates had earlier lined up split out wide on a goal line situation, but Rivers opted to pass to Melvin Gordon instead, who converted for the touchdown.

2018 Week 1 vs KC (3 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)

Gates didn't see the field until the middle of the first quarter. His first catch wasn't even an official reception, as he snagged a two point conversion in the second half to pull the Chargers closer. His first official catch didn't come until there were about eight minutes left in the game, and the second one came right after it. His involvement was minimal after not taking part in any preseason action, but he should see more work in the coming weeks.
