Antonio Gates had four catches for 43 yards as the San Diego Chargers defeated the Oakland Raiders on Monday Night Football. Gates saw eight targets on the night from quarterback Philip Rivers, the most of any Chargers pass catcher.
Analysis: Gates could have had a bigger night, but he was unable to haul in a fastball from Rivers in the end zone and couldn't make a difficult grab on a deep ball late in the game. Fantasy owners may be disappointed by the relatively quiet night, but it's clear Gates will continue to be prominent part of the Chargers' offense this season. Injuries are still a concern, however. Gates briefly left the game with a rib injury, but was able to return on the next series.
