Fantasy Analysis

Gates will be 34 years old when the season starts and the writing is on the wall as Ladarius Green will surpass Gates as the top tight end in San Diego in 2014. Not only is Gates no longer an elite tight end, he's no longer a TE1. He'll make a great backup but will have the most value as a handcuff to Green. There is still some value here as Gates will not go easily into the night so draft him as a backup and feel confident using him as a bye-week replacement or an emergency starter.

Receiving: 70 Receptions, 950 Yards, 9 TD.

So how does everyone feel about the 2011 Chargers? playoff team? possible contender for Super Bowl? Or not even make the playoffs? IMO they'll make the playoffs as long as the special teams doesnt stink it up like last season. Have a chance to go ...
Hey San Diegans.... Is LaBoy starting for the Chargers at OLB this season? Sure would be helpful information for my IDP fantasy league. Many thanks from a person born in Redondo Beach now living in Charleston, SC...
In hindsight, and with the perspective of a concerned father, Antonio Cromartie's meltdown Sunday in Denver is less surprising. If no more acceptable. "I take fault for it," Cromartie said. "I played like straight trash." Two ...
