An era will be coming to an end in San Diego next season. While tight end Antonio Gates announced he is returning for the 2017 season, ESPN reports that rookie Hunter Henry is expected to take over the No.1 role.

The 22-year-old tight end already has over 400 receiving yards to go along with seven touchdowns this season and with another offseason of growth and being in the offense, could emerge as a fantasy go-to next season at a thin position.
