Antonio Gates!!! What happened?????

Postby season2 » Fri Dec 05, 2008 12:19 am

My playoffs start week 15, and I can't rely on Gates right now............ I'll probably play him week 15, and might bench him week 16 vs Tampa Bay.............I'm thinking i'm gonna have to pick up either Zach Miller, or Shockey(Great week 16 matchup @ Det) Let me know if i'm nuts.....

How do you think I feel.

Playoff started tonight and I was 10-3, best team in the league coming in. I had LT AND Gates.

I cant believe Chargers scored 34 points and my players score 15 with a big fat zero coming from Gates.

Oh yea, I had Vincent Jackson on the bench because he has been terrible the past month.

THIS SUCKS.

For the first time in 86 games (including playoffs) in which Gates has played this happened. That's right, Gates had a streak of 86 consecutive games w/ at least 1 catch snapped last night.

For the record, LT had a streak of 63 games (including playoffs) w/ at least 1 catch snapped last night as well.

The Chargers are the most frustrating team in FF by far this season IMO - I hate them.

I'm not saying to bench Gates, but don't play Shockey. He's trash this year. I had him on my team until about 3 weeks ago and got tired of his numerous 35 yards and a fumble stats.

There is always a risk going for the top guy in each position. If he flops you lose a ton of value. This happened at nearly every position this year.

Gates has been a flop the past four weeks. Expectations should have been lowered, and you should have been expecting more of the same.
