Chargers TE Antonio Gates says he's not 100-percent

Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

Though he played twice in five days, Antonio Gates acknowledged Monday he still feels a hamstring injury he sustained in Game 2.

“I’m not 100 percent,” said the eight-time Pro Bowler, “but it’s good enough for what I am trying to get done as a team.”

Gates, 36, said the injury suffered versus Jacksonville, in pursuit of an end-zone pass Sept. 18, was the first hamstring injury of his career.

Fantasy Impact:

With Gates in a reduced role, rookie Hunter Henry has produced several big plays, including a 59-yard reception at Oakland and a scheme-abetted, 5-yard scoring catch opposite an above-average cornerback, Chris Harris Jr. Hunter remains the guy to play at TE, at least as long as Gates isn't 100-percent.

Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 5. Hunter Henry obviously takes a hit if Gates returns to the fold, though Henry could still play starter’s snaps if the team elects to ease Gates in. The late kickoff creates a tricky situation for Henry owners, so hopefully we get more clarity by Sunday morning.

Fantasy Impact:

Hunter Henry will get the start at TE for the Bolts. Henry played pretty well last week getting the bulk of the work at the position but did have a fumble which ended any Charger hopes of a comeback. He's a usable option as a low-end TE1, but the Saints are fourth in allowing fantasy points to TEs.

Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 4. Hunter Henry was pretty good last week, collecting five catches for 76 yards. The Saints have been tough against tight ends this year (#4 in TE aFPA), but that’s probably just statistical noise considering how bad the New Orleans defense has been this season.

Fantasy Impact:

Antonio Gates' status was in serious doubt leading up to this game so with him out, Hunter Henry will assume a big workload at TE in what is a pretty good matchup against the Colts that could feature a lot of points.
