Lions | Goldent Tate confident in blocking ability

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 15:30:55 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: As much as Tate takes pride in his blocking, he's also a quality fantasy wide receiver. He recently said he expects to catch more passes this year, which is definitely achievable in Detroit's potent offense. Consider Tate a high-end WR3 to low-end WR2 in standard leagues this year.

Lions | Golden Tate expects more receptions

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 13:45:01 -0700

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."

Fantasy Tip: Tate should have a solid role in the passing game this season, but the team likely will spread the ball around because of the weapons they have on offense. Owners should consider Tate as a No. 3 wide receiver with the chance to become a No. 2 fantasy wide receiver.

Seahawks | Offer to Golden Tate was laughable

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 16:05:42 -0700

Former Seattle Seahawks WR Golden Tate said the offer from the team to attempt to re-sign him was "laughable," and he ended up inking a five-year, $31 million deal with the Detroit Lions. "I didn't mean a 40 percent discount," Tate said. "I'm going to earn in one year at Detroit what Seattle was going to pay me for two years. Seattle offered numbers that were laughable. I thought, 'I've given you everything and this is what you give me?'"
