Kansas City Chiefs v San Diego Chargers

2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Antonio Gates had a slow first half of the season for his standards as he struggled to find the end zone. As the season grew deeper, Gates showed fantasy owners why he’s still the most reliable fantasy tight end as he posted a great finish.

Gates had his biggest yardage season on his career with 1,157 yards and his second highest yard per catch average (14.6) of his career. These numbers just go to show you that Gates is still the best fantasy tight end you can select on draft day.

2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: Gates may or may not reach over 1,000 yards this season, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he tops double digit touchdowns. With LaDainian Tomlinson gone, the Chargers will probably rely on Gates for touchdowns more in the red zone.

Expect another fine season from one the games all time greatest receiving tight ends.
