Summary

Golden Tate signed a 4-year, $37.5 million deal with the Giants, including $23.5 million in guarantees. It's a surprising decision for a team that parted ways with Odell Beckham in favor of a rebuilding effort, but the price tag is reasonable for one of the league's better possession receivers. Tate turns 31 years old in August and has likely already had his peak seasons, but should contribute particularly in an offense where Eli Manning has become reluctant to throw downfield. Tate's 67.6% career catch rate is among the best of his generation, and he's also among the most productive pass catchers after the catch. Expect Tate to play primarily outside, as Sterling Shepard usually handles the slot in New York. While his days of 90-catch, 1,000-yard seasons are probably over, he can still help the Giants and fantasy managers as a No. 2 or No. 3 option, particularly in points-per-reception (PPR) formats.
