Antonio Gates: Slated to Sit Friday

Rotowire.com
Update: Gates won't play in Friday's preseason game against the Vikings, the North County Times reports.

Recommendation: There's nothing ominous going on here. Gates is reportedly as injury-free as he has ever been and the Chargers are in no mood to jeopardize that this close to Week 1. While Gates is clearly behind Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski on draft/auction boards, he remains an elite fantasy TE option when he is healthy, which is currently is, from all accounts.
