  Giants | Golden Tate limited Wednesday    Wed Dec 11, 01:10 PM

New York Giants TE Golden Tate (foot) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: The Giants have a great opportunity to put up points against the Dolphins on Sunday. That makes Tate at least a flex play in PPR leagues, no matter if the quarterback for the Giants is Daniel Jones or Eli Manning.

New York Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) is likely to return in Week 14.

Footballguys view: We'll watch Tate's practice status during the week. He's a WR2 or flex option in PPR leagues in Week 14. Tate will be a 'relief valve' receiver for Eli Manning (Daniel Jones is in a walking boot) on Monday night against the Eagles.

  Giants | Golden Tate out Week 13    Fri Nov 29, 12:24 PM

New York Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) on Friday, Nov. 29, was ruled out of the team's Week 13 game against the Green Bay Packers with a concussion.

Footballguys view: Sterling Shepard was an excellent PPR play when Tate was out earlier this year and should be in lineups this week. Darius Slayton also gets a bump on this news, but Daniel Jones job gets a little more difficult without Tate.

  Giants | Golden Tate sits out    Thu Nov 28, 12:45 PM

New York Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) is out of practice again Thursday, Nov. 28.

Footballguys view: Tate is almost certainly out this weekend. Sterling Shepard becomes a great PPR play and there's a better chance for Darius Slayton to hit with some extra targets to go around.

  Giants | Golden Tate visits the end zone    Sun Nov 24, 07:23 PM

New York Giants WR Golden Tate finished with three grabs for 33 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears, a team he knows well from his days with the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Tate's touchdown was on a fourth down desperation heave and his value might be diminishing with Sterling Shepard's return, although an improvement in passing matchups starting with Green Bay this week followed by Philadelphia, Miami, and Washington could keep everyone fed in the Giants passing game.

  Giants | Golden Tate catches two touchdowns    Sun Nov 10, 05:50 PM

New York Giants WR Golden Tate caught four passes for 95 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 10. He was targeted eight times during the game.

Footballguys view: Tate had a 61-yard score and continues to be a key target earning his free agent contract. He's a solid WR3/Flex with upside and a good schedule in the fantasy playoffs.

  Giants | Golden Tate finishes with 80 yards    Sun Oct 20, 04:59 PM

New York Giants WR Golden Tate ended up with six receptions for 80 yards on 11 targets in Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Tate was the best thing going in a somewhat ineffective passing game, mainly because of the pressure on Daniel Jones. Sterling Shepard could return next week to take some edge off of Golden Tate against his old Lions team.

  Giants | Golden Tate tops 100 yards    Thu Oct 10, 11:54 PM

New York Giants WR Golden Tate caught six of his nine targets for 102 yards, including a 64-yard touchdown, in a 35-14 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 6.

Footballguys view: Tate made a juggling catch of a well thrown ball by Daniel Jones into tight coverage and pulled away from the defense for the score. He bounced back after having a dud of a debut and should be a solid WR3/Flex play at worst against the Cardinals next week. He shouldn't be on the waiver wire in typical leagues.

New York Giants WR Golden Tate caught three passes for 13 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 5. He was targeted six times during the game.

  Giants | Golden Tate activated    Tue Oct 1, 03:24 PM

New York Giants WR Golden Tate was activated from the suspended list Tuesday, Oct. 1.

Footballguys view: Tate will make his Giants debut Sunday against the Vikings. He's a solid veteran who can provide some boost to the offense because of his run-after-the-catch ability. It will be interesting to see how he's used as a slot receiver...mainly because that's a spot where Sterling Shepard regularly lines up. Tate has deep flex appeal in his season debut.

  Giants | Golden Tate on suspended list    Sat Aug 31, 04:58 PM

New York Giants WR Golden Tate was placed on the Reserve/Suspended list Saturday, Aug. 31.

  Giants | Golden Tate's appeal denied    Tue Aug 13, 04:21 PM

New York Giants WR Golden Tate's appeal of his four-game suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing substance abuse policy was denied Tuesday, Aug. 13.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Tate reported himself to the league after taking a banned fertility drug. He'll miss the first month of the regular season, so the Giants will use more Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram when they go through the air during that time.

  Giants | Golden Tate to appeal suspension    Sat Jul 27, 11:13 AM

New York Giants WR Golden Tate is appealing a four-game suspension for violating the National Football League's performance-enhancing substance policy because he believes he has a legitimate case, according to multiple league sources.

Footballguys view: The appeal is supposed to be heard in early August. This means the Giants will know whether or not Tate is going to be with them the first four games of the 2019 regular season. Stay tuned.

  Giants | Golden Tate to be used as return man?    Sat Jul 6, 08:31 AM

New York Giants WR Golden Tate could be used as a kick and punt returner this season.

Footballguys view: We'll see if the Giants choose to use the veteran receiver this way. He should get plenty of work in the Giants small ball offense, so stretching him thin on special teams wouldn't make a lot of sense.

  Giants | Sterling Shepard the go-to target?    Sat Jun 8, 10:14 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard averaged 7.7 targets in four games without Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. last year compared to 6.1 targets in 12 games with Beckham, and Jordan Raanan of ESPNNewYork.com believes Shepard will the the No. 1 option in the passing attack ahead of WR Golden Tate in 2019.

Footballguys view: It's hard to say who will be the most reliable fantasy option out of Shepard, Tate, and Evan Engram, and could change from game to game. We'll be monitoring the development of Daniel Jones closely, because the #6 pick could be taking over the quarterback job from Eli Manning this year, and maybe sooner than later.

  Giants | Golden Tate signed by Giants    Thu Mar 14, 04:48 PM

Free-agent WR Golden Tate (Eagles) signed a four-year, $37.5 million deal with the New York Giants Thursday, March 14, according to a source. The deal includes $23 million fully guaranteed.

Footballguys view: The Giants traded away Odell Beckham Jr. to the Browns so they needed another wide receiver to fill the void. That's Tate, who just didn't fit in with the Eagles last year. Tate should provide Eli Manning with a reliable underneath target.

  Patriots | Golden Tate wants to join Patriots    Wed Feb 27, 03:49 PM

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent WR Golden Tate said he would love to be signed by the New England Patriots in free agency. Turning 31 years old this offseason, Tate is focused on winning.

Footballguys view: Lots of players want to join a champion, but the numbers have to be right. It has already been reported, though, that New England may not want to sign Tate if his asking price is too high.

  Patriots | Golden Tate unlikely to join NE    Sun Feb 24, 04:21 PM

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent WR Golden Tate would be a great fit for the New England Patriots, but the Patriots probably will not sign Tate since he likely will ask for more money than the team is willing to offer, in the opinion of NESN.com's Doug Kyed.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are going to have a revamped WR corps in 2019. That may not include a guy like Tate, even though his run-after-the-catch ability would be a nice fit for what the Pats do on offense.

  Packers | Green Bay in the market for slot help?    Thu Feb 14, 09:41 PM

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent WR Golden Tate and Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Jamison Crowder are options to fill the need the Green Bay Packers have at slot receiver, according to Bill Barnwell of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Perhaps they could be interested in a slot guy, but they did select three WRs in the 2018 NFL draft. The Packers are going to be interesting to watch with new head coach Matt LaFleur running the show.

  Saints | New Orleans to sign slot receiver?    Sat Feb 9, 02:10 AM

The New Orleans Saints could try to sign a free-agent wide receiver to play the slot next season, in the opinion of ESPN's Mike Triplett, who names Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb, Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley, Philadelphia Eagles WR Golden Tate and Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries as possible targets in free agency.

Footballguys view: The Saints will be looking for more talent at the wide receiver position. That could come through free agency with one of the players mentioned above. Michael Thomas is a stud, and Tre'Quan Smith has intriguing upside...and oh yeah, Ted Ginn can still be a deep threat. That's a nice trio but we're expecting the Saints to add more competition to the WR corps.

  Bills | Buffalo could target veteran pass catchers    Fri Feb 8, 01:24 AM

The Buffalo Bills may be interested in signing someone like Philadelphia Eagles WR Golden Tate, Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley or Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook in free agency, in the opinion of Forbes' Curtis Rush.

Footballguys view: The Bills have a young group of receivers, led by Zay Jones and Robert Foster. Perhaps adding some veteran depth to that room would help. They could also use a veteran tight end, perhaps like Cook, since Charles Clay isn't getting any younger.

  Eagles | Golden Tate could be re-signed    Mon Jan 21, 02:00 AM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Golden Tate could be brought back if the team moves on from WR Nelson Agholor, in the opinion of Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski, though he believes Tate signing elsewhere to be the more likely outcome.

Footballguys view: Tate is set to be an unrestricted free agent in 2019, and he should more than a few teams interested. In a season split between two teams (Lions/Eagles), Tate failed to reach 1,000 receiving yards for the first time since 2015. He's still capable of making plays because of his run-after-the-catch ability. Some are speculating he could find his way back to Detroit.

  Eagles | Philly GM defends Golden Tate trade    Tue Jan 15, 12:24 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Golden Tate's trade-deadline acquisition from the Detroit Lions 'no question' worked out the way the Eagles hoped it would, general manager Howie Roseman said Tuesday, Jan. 15.

Footballguys view: Tate did make some plays with the Eagles here and there but he just didn't seem to fit in as good as he could have. Now he enters free agency in 2019 and it's unlikely the Eagles bring him back. They took a chance and it didn't work out...even though Roseman spun it differently on Tuesday.
