Antonio Gates is UNDERRATED

Postby macdona1 » Sat Oct 13, 2007 10:24 pm

I would just like to state that I believe that Gates does not get enough love, not only is he the best TE by far he is one of the best RECEIVERS in the entire league. As of right now his stats of 40 rec 489 yards and 3 TD is second only to Moss. He is basically tied with ocho cinco except for the fact that he has 40 rec. If he continues on this pace, considering his TE eligibility is he a second round pick next year???

I play in a PPR league that gives 1.5 points for TE receptions. Gates is number 4 overall in points.

Pretty much everyone acknowledges that Gates is the #1 TE in football right now, real NFL and fantasy.


So how is that underrated?? :-?
The cake is a lie.

Gates underrated?
Since when?

He's a mid third rounder and will be just that at the end of this season. He's playing quite a bit above what was expected of him, once LT gets back to being LT Gates Fantasy pts per game will drop a bit. But he will still be the best fantasy tight end.

I took a risk on him this year as my 2nd WR and it has paid off. ;-D

Gates is also good because he puts up points from the TE slot... so it leaves up more room for sleeper receivers.

I win the TE spot nearly every week. But... In the draft, I was thinking of taking Brady instead and passed figuring Brady would still be there until the round flipped and I could grab him. Big mistake. The guy with the first pick took him and now has LT and Brady. Oh well, at least I have the best TE in the biz. Gates is by far the best TE and does well in comparisons with most WRs. He didn't have a great day today but he'll be golden again after the bye.
Go Bears!
