Obviously, this changes many lineup plans as fantasy football players looked towards tight end Ladarius Green and wide receiver Stevie Johnson to receive a bigger workload with Gates’ absence.

The defense for the Baltimore Ravens has allowed an average of 300.7 receiving yards per game to opposing teams, as well as 12 touchdown receptions on the year. This is a very friendly matchup for Gates even if he isn’t 100% for this game.
