Summary

Tate has been a model of consistency in Detroit. He has four straight seasons with at least 90 receptions. In 2017, he caught 92 passes for 1,003 yards despite the continued emergence of Marvin Jones. With second-year receiver Kenny Golladay expected to takeover in what should be an almost every-down role on the outside across from Jones, Tate is likely to take nearly all of his snaps lined up in the slot. He is a good bet to again catch in the neighborhood of 90 passes and put up 1,000 receiving yards. Tate is a safe, if unexciting, WR2 for fantasy purposes in PPR leagues. In standard scoring, his lack of touchdowns (averaging 4.75 per season in four years with the Lions) and solid but unspectacular yardage totals limit his upside further. Tate turns 30-years old during training camp and is entering the last year of his deal. (May 26)
