Antonio Gates said his comments indicating he would like a reduced role in 2015 were misunderstood.
"I ain't asking to play less," Gates said. "Every time I'm in a game, I feel like I have the opportunity to make a play. Why would I want to be on the sideline? That defeats the purpose." Gates told Sports Illustrated he played more than the Chargers expected him to in 2014, but he still saw over 200 fewer snaps than in 2013 and was far less involved as a blocker. That usage allowed Gates to stay fresh late in the season and will likely be the blueprint moving forward. Gates' days playing 900 snaps a season are likely over, but he will still be involved enough in the passing game to be a strong fantasy asset. Apr 18 - 11:59 AM
