Where does Antonio Gates rank after his 2-TD debut?
So believe it or not Rob Gronkowski wasn’t the No. 1 scoring fantasy tight end last week. I know, that sounds crazy. Does that mean that guys like Gary Barnidge and Tyler Eifert are going to be ranked ahead of Gronk this week? Um, no. Not with New England going into “deflategate” central in Indianapolis on Sunday. You just know Belichick is going to want to crush the Colts.
So if Gronk is No. 1 (again), then who is No. 2? And what about Antonio Gates, the trustworthy, reliable Chargers TE who finally made his season debut on "Monday Night Football" and promptly caught his 100th and 10st career touchdown passes? Where does Philip Rivers' favorite target check in for Week 6?
See for yourself below.
