As if two days of professional football wasn't enough, the NFL decided to graciously add games to Thursdays starting tonight. Unfortunately not all cable operators carry the NFL Network, so we fantasy nuts will constantly have to hit "refresh" on our NFL.com browsers to stay updated.
With that being said, the Chargers and the Raiders square off tonight where TE Antonio Gates looks to keep his scoring streak alive. Should Gates stay healthy and QB Philip Rivers is indeed healthy as he says he is, Gates will be a top-3 TE going forward.
Tight Ends to Buy Before the Trade Deadline: Jermichel Finley, Jake Ballard, Brandon Pettigrew, Jason Witten
Tight Ends to Sell: Vernon Davis, Tony Gonzalez, Dallas Clark, Kellen Winslow
