Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 17 vs PHI (8 / 5 / 68 / 1 rec)
Golden Tate had an excellent touchdown grab later in the game, which saved his production from being completely dismal. Tate managed somehow to secure a deep ball in the corner of the endzone with one hand/arm in bounds for the score. Tate took some vicious hits over the middle as Jones left his receiver out to dry but he did well to hold on despite the immediate contact from the Eagles. Tate generally has extremely strong hands, holding onto balls despite taking massive hits and isn't afraid of getting popped over the middle. It's one of his great attributes as a player and it was on full display on Sunday against the Eagles.
2019 Week 16 vs WAS (11 / 6 / 96 / 0 rec)
Golden Tate had an uncharacteristic drop on the sideline early in this game but shook this off to be the Giants leading receiver. Tate is a tough football player and didn't go down easy. He fought hard after the catch and routinely made the extra effort to secure the first down. He then got wide open on a deep post route and secured the pass for a big first down. Tate made a terrific catch along the sideline, timing his break perfectly and doing well to keep his feet in bounds on a broken play. Tate almost hauled in the Hail Mary attempt from Jones as time was expiring late in the game, though he would likely been tackled in the field of play before scoring. He has shown he still has plenty left in the tank throughout his season with the Giants. Tate always shows he has the speed to get downfield and the toughness to fight for catches in traffic over the middle, a really dependable receiver who can be a threat all over the field.
2019 Week 15 vs MIA (4 / 1 / 51 / 1 rec)
Golden Tate managed only one grab on Sunday but he made it count as it went for a touchdown. Tate was targeted on a seam route up the field, he tipped it to himself and secured the ball. The Miami defensive back took a terrible angle to make the tackle and this allowed Tate to escape untouched into the endzone for the score. Manning tried to find Tate deep along the sideline later but the pass was out of bounds. Tate didn't get many more looks from Manning as Shepard was the main man on this day.
2019 Week 14 vs PHI (5 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Golden Tate managed only catch but was targeted a lot more. His chemistry looked off with Manning as several balls were late or off target. Tate was targeted in the redzone on a play over the middle but a late ball meant it was batted down before Tate could make a play on it. Manning almost hit him in stride out of his own endzone but the pass was just slightly overthrown and out of reach. A broken scramble play from his quarterback resulted in a lofty ball to the sideline but Tate couldn't keep his feet in bounds. The Giants offense can't support two receivers in most weeks and this week it was Slayton's week to put up numbers. Tate is a risky play going forward.
2019 Week 12 vs CHI (7 / 3 / 33 / 1 rec)
Golden Tate didn't have many catches but came up big in the fourth quarter. Jones threw a high ball on 4th and long towards the endzone and placed it just deep enough which allowed Tate to go up to get it as he was the deepest man on the play. Tate dropped one ball over the middle and otherwise had short catches in this game. The Giants passing attack failed to push the ball downfield and the rushing attack was not able to set up the passing. Tate still has the speed to beat defenses deep as we saw in this game and several others. The Giants and Jones know he can score still, they are just inconsistent as a unit to back up the veteran player.
2019 Week 10 vs NYJ (8 / 4 / 95 / 2 rec)
Golden Tate had only four catches on Sunday but he made them count. Tate scored twice but could have had a third. Tate got his hands on a quick screen pass and got excellent blocking initially which allowed him to speed into the endzone down the sideline untouched for a big touchdown. Later in the game Tate was wide open deep down the field in the endzone but Jones overthrew him. Tate did score again over the middle as he lost the defender and turned up-field for his second score. Tate looked very explosive and like he still has the speed to burn defenders in one on one races. Jones trusts Tate as he will throw the ball up and Tate has a nice role in this offense, especially when Engram/Shepard are out. This level of production won't be replicated every week but he's worth a flex pick if you are stuck.
2019 Week 9 vs DAL (6 / 6 / 42 / 0 rec, 1 / 16 / 0 rush)
Saquon Barkley could not get going for the Giants on Monday night. The Cowboys did an excellent job of bottling him up at the line of scrimmage. The Giants couldn't keep the defense off of Barkley for long enough and the ground game was never established. Occasionally Barkley was able to bounce a run outside for a small gain or shake a defender off but these plays were few and far between. On one occasion, Barkley almost broke free into the secondary but ran into his own offensive lineman in error. He did fight hard at the line of scrimmage and converted a few short situations where he was afforded some space. Barkley broke free once against the Cowboys in the second half. He got a short pass and the initial defense was blocked well enough which allowed an explosive run down the sideline as Barkley turned on the jets. The Giants struggled in the redzone however, both on the ground and in the air. Barkley got several touches and carries near the goal line but the Giants could never get a strong enough push to create a gap for him. Credit must be given to the Cowboys on the night as they won the battle up front.
2019 Week 8 vs DET (10 / 8 / 85 / 0 rec)
Golden Tate had the most receiving yards and was a frequent target for Jones in this game. He was used in the short - intermediate game, as is his strength, to decent success against his former team. Tate made the first tackle attempt miss on a catch over the middle and escaped for a big first down. He showed good chemistry with Jones, connecting on scramble attempts on the outside. Tate made a nice grab on a back shoulder pass and was wide open on a flea flicker play but this catch was negated due to a hold. Tate's defender was flagged for pass interference late in the game on a clear foul and this helped set up the Giants for a score. Tate routinely made tough catches in traffic over the middle and he excels at this. His concentration and hands are top tier, though he doesn't have the talent anymore to burn defenses deep. Tate still has an important role in this offense and has decent value as a #3 receiver in PPR leagues.
2019 Week 7 vs ARI (11 / 6 / 80 / 0 rec)
Golden Tate was the leading receiver for the Giants as he showed great chemistry with Jones on Sunday. The pair hooked up over the middle, often in very tight coverage, throughout the game and picked up crucial first downs to extend many of the Giants drives. Tate was a reliable pair of hands in the wet weather and a tough player when fighting for the ball over the middle. He worked with Jones well when he was facing pressure and Jones often looked his way as the first intended target in his progressions. Tate will rarely break a play for a big touchdown or outrun a defense down the sideline but his reliability for first downs cannot be under valued as picked apart zone coverage at times, including plays on 4th down in clutch situations. There were very few redzone opportunities for the Giants due to turnovers and the lack of a touchdown hurt his production. He should be seen as a decent WR3 in ppr leagues but Jones is a bit too unpredictable right now in his career.
2019 Week 6 vs NE (9 / 6 / 102 / 1 rec)
Golden Tate was the leading receiver for the Giants but got most of his production on one play. Tate was able to tip the ball to himself on a well thrown pass from Jones over the shoulder. The defender subsequently fell down in pursuit while Tate was able to outrun the safety for the score. Tate was open again deep but the ball was inaccurate. He worked the short game well with Jones and was key in picking up first downs with slants / curls when needed. Jones was having a rough game however and threw a lot of interceptions. This really limited the value of Tate as a result. He showed good concentration hauling in a ball over the middle in traffic. Tate was fouled down the field late in the game as a clear pass interference call was not made despite a coaches challenge. Tate had limited touches apart from this due to the Giants struggles and learning curve of Daniel Jones.
2019 Week 5 vs MIN (6 / 3 / 13 / 0 rec)
Golden Tate really wasn't a factor in his debut for the Giants and Jones rarely looked his way. A lot of his targets came in the fourth quarter as the game was well decided. Tate got short passes and forced an illegal contact penalty in the redzone but was invisible for the majority of this game. Tate will need to work on his chemistry with Jones and time will tell if the duo can perform on the field.
