Tanking Antonio Gates
Wonders never cease in the NFL. Fantasy gurus have taken note of an odd request coming out of San Diego. It might be time to consider trading up at tight end. Yes Antonio Gates has been good to us but now he is asking for less playing time in the upcoming season. This is also the last year of his contract which has this move reeking of his golden years. At 35, he is probably thinking of hanging up his cleats so Gates is clearly a low fantasy draft pick in your drafts next year.
Journeyman to Juggernaut
Ray Rice caused problems for Baltimore with his departure. They had to resort to signing journeyman Justin Forsett. He got over 1,200 yards rushing. Impressive but rumors are circulating that Melvin Gordon from Wisconsin is firmly in their sites. Even with Forsett getting a three year deal, the DUI of backup Pierce gives them a definite need at a once devalued position. The number that has them thinking beyond Forsett is thirty. That is how old he will be and that is past your prime in running back terms. If he goes to #26 in the draft, the Ravens will have that one two punch that will make life easy for Flacco next year.
