2019 Fantasy Outlook
While the Chargers haven't ruled out yet another late training-camp signing of Antonio Gates, it's likely Culkin will have his spot on the 53-man roster guaranteed. He'll likely continue to reprise his role as special team's specialist and depth option behind Hunter Henry and Virgil Green, with only the former representing a realistic fantasy option at the position.

Culkin (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Culkin has already been ruled out for the season, so this is simply a formality. The 25-year-old tight end will look to recover in time for the 2020 season. Virgil Green (groin), Lance Kendricks and Stephen Anderson are the will carry the load until Hunter Henry (knee) is ready to return.
