The four-game suspension of Antonio Gates is sure to change a few 2015 Fantasy Football tight end rankings over the weekend.

Gates was suspended for violating the league’s PED policy, and he stated that he never knowingly ingested any banned substance. The 35-year old receiver still offered Fantasy value in 2014 with his 821 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns, so many are wondering if backup tight end Ladarius Green can emerge from the shadows.
Green was projected to have a breakout season in 2014 but only hauled in 19 receptions for 226 yards. With Gates out of the picture for full four games, however, could this be the opportunity he needed to earn a larger role?
The Chargers face the Detroit Lions, Cincinnati Bengals, Minnesota Vikings and Cleveland Browns during the absence of Gates.
