Antonio Gates Playing Today and The Impact It Will Have on The Game

ESPN's John Clayton is reporting that San Diego Tight End Antonio Gates WILL play today against the Indianapolis Colts. Gates was listed as doubtful because of a dislocated left big toe. There is no word as to how long or for how many plays he will be able to be out there for, but expect Gates to be able to act the part of a decoy on most plays.

He is by far Philip Rivers favorite target, especially to go to when in trouble. If Gates gets knocked out of the game expect Rivers to really struggle to move the ball down field.

If you are in a NFL fantasy playoff league and don't have someone else to put out there you might as well throw Gates out there. There aren't exactly too many other options.
