Lions | Golden Tate displaying rare consistency

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 17:22:53 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate has played only 59.2 percent of his team's snaps in the four games since suffering a Week 6 shoulder injury that was expected to keep him out multiple weeks. Over that same time, Tate has posted at least 85 receiving yards in every contest - the only player in the NFL to put together such a streak that long in the last two years.

Fantasy Tip: He's also caught at least six passes in each of those games, making him a veritable PPR goldmine over the last month. Tate is a handful for many of the league's best corners, but spends much of his time in the slot, increasing his potential to catch Matthew Stafford's eye on a regular basis. Tate's relative lack of touchdowns keeps him from entering the high-end WR1 conversation, but he offers one of the safest floors among receivers in fantasy year after year.

Lions | Golden Tate just misses century mark

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 13:55:58 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate racked up six receptions for 97 yards and a touchdown in Week 10 against the Cleveland Browns and he was targeted seven times.

Fantasy Tip: Tate has really turned it up lately, posting six or more receptions in each of his past four outings with at least 86 yards. The former Notre Dame receiver is a legitimate low-end WR1 in PPR fantasy leagues right now, and a useful WR2 or flex option in standard play heading into Week 11.

Lions | Golden Tate logs season high in yardage

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 20:51:58 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate caught seven of nine targets for 113 yards in the team's Week 9 win Monday, Nov. 6, versus the Green Bay Packers. It was a season high for Tate in receiving yardage.

Fantasy Tip: This was also the second time Tate has reached the 100-yard plateau this season, and first since the opening week, when he had 10 catches for 107 yards against Arizona. Owners would surely like more touchdowns, as the former Seahawk has just two on the campaign, but overall, Tate is a fine WR2 option to trot out on a weekly basis due to his excessive number of targets. Hopefully he's able to pad his touchdown total through the second half of the year.

Lions | Golden Tate delivers with seven grabs

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 20:53:24 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate hauled in seven receptions for 86 yards on eight targets in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also lost a fumble.

Fantasy Tip: Tate was gimpy in practice after an ankle injury last week in New Orleans, but he quickly shook that off and had a nice game for fantasy owners. He did not seem to have any restrictions or a snap count in this one, and he can be trusted heading into Week 9 against the Green Bay Packers.

Lions | Golden Tate active for SNF

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 16:15:39 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) is active for the Week 8 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Tate was listed as questionable due to an AC joint sprain, but he made it through all three practice sessions this week as well as satisfying the coaching staff with the pregame workouts. We'll keep an eye on him to see if he plays a decreased amount of snaps or he can play without limitations.

Lions | Golden Tate hoping to play

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 06:06:05 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) is preparing to play in Week 8's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Tate was listed as questionable on the injury report due to an AC joint sprain but was able to take part in all three practice sessions during the week. The Lions have a Sunday night game this week and Tate could see a limited number of snaps, making him a very risky fantasy option. If he is active, he should be viewed as a WR3.

Lions | Questionable tag for Golden Tate

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 13:14:25 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 27, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Tate appears to have a decent chance to play but owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he will be in uniform. He is a risky option since the Lions play on Sunday Night Football, so owners will need other options available if they want to use Tate. He will be facing one of the best passing defenses in the NFL but can still be a No. 3 receiver in most leagues if he is active.

Lions | Golden Tate practicing Friday

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 08:40:28 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) is practicing Friday, Oct. 27.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown if he was a full participant, but his week-long participation bodes well for him playing this week. He would be a WR3 option against the New Orleans Saints due to possible limitations.

Lions | Golden Tate remains limited

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 13:20:19 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Tate may be a game-time decision this week, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He is a solid fantasy option when he is healthy, but owners will need other options available in case he is ruled out for the game.
