Summary

Tate has never been a guy who lights it up. He helped the Seahawks make the playoffs last season, but Tate disappeared when Seattle needed him the most. Down the stretch, Tate posted five consecutive games with fewer than 10 fantasy points. In Detroit Tate won't be the top receiver but he could benefit from defenses giving full attention to Calvin Johnson in a pass happy offense. He has low-end WR2 upside, but could also end up being too inconsistent to keep in your lineup every week. (June 6)

Latest News

Lions | Golden Tate placed on PUP list (Wed Jul 23, 05:25 PM) - Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (undisclosed) will start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform List, according to a league source.

Our View: Tate landed on his shoulder wrong earlier this offseason. He should be ready to go soon, but consider him day-to-day at this point. Tate could be a nice fantasy player this year as the team's WR2 opposite Calvin Johnson.

Lions | Goldent Tate confident in blocking ability (Thu Jul 17, 06:30 PM) - Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate knows he can block. Tate said blocking is just as important as catching the ball and even went as far as to say it's not that challenging.

Our View: Fantasy owners need to scoop up Tate at his current ADP. Tate is going off the board at WR32 (7.04) in 12-team PPR leagues. He could outperform that draft position as the primary target behind superstar Calvin Johnson.

Lions | Golden Tate expects more receptions (Mon Jul 14, 04:45 PM) - Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate said he expects to catch more passes in 2014 than he did last season because opponents will be focusing on trying to cover WR Calvin Johnson. 'I think if I can stay healthy ... it's going to be fun,' Tate said. 'I have a chance to catch a ton more balls. I'm going to see a lot of single coverage. I'm probably going to see a lot of No. 2 and No. 3 cornerbacks because everyone's going to be on No. 81.'

Our View: An important note for fantasy owners here. Like Emmanuel Sanders (Broncos), Tate is a bit underrated in fantasy circles right now. The new Joe Lombardi offense should be able to produce big numbers through the air. This is good news for Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson and Tate. His current ADP is WR32 (7.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.
