I think people see that #2 next to his name from last season and forget that Gates got basically all of his points in four games last year.
- 4 games: 23 receptions, 302 yards, and 9 touchdowns. Average: 5.75/75.5/2.25
- Other 12: 46 receptions, 519 yards, and 3 touchdowns. Average: 3.83/43.25/.25
With the bye Gates is not going to be playable for 5 weeks of a 13 week fantasy season. That just isn't worth the draft spot when you didn't get much most weeks (He scored 3 points or less 6 times last year).
I think Gates may firmly entrench himself in the "More Name than Game" category this season.
