2011 Fantasy Football Scouting Report: Antonio Gates, TE, San Diego Chargers

2010 Stats
  50 rec. / 782 yds.
   10 TDs
2011 Projected
72 rec. / 1,000 yds.
    9 TDs

Gates missed six games last season due to foot and toe injuries, but still managed to catch ten touchdowns. Before his injury, Gates was on pace for an exceptional season, perhaps his best ever. Gates still finished with 50 catches for 782 yards and the 10 touchdowns. Gates should be 100 percent when the season begins and getting wide receiver Vincent Jackson back for a full season will help take some of the pressure off Gates. Gates turns 31 in June and his age and injuries might be starting to catch-up with him. But despite his recent ailments, Gates is still the top tight end in the NFL.
