Lions | Golden Tate overcame slow start

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 21:22:51 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate averaged 3.4 catches, 6.1 targets and 26.8 yards per game over the first five games of 2016, but he posted per-game averages of 6.7 catches, 9.5 targets and 85.7 yards over the final 11 games.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the slow start, Tate reached 90 receptions for the third straight year and topped 1,000 yards. He should be a dependable WR2 in PPR formats in 2017.

Lions | Six catches for Golden Tate

Mon, 26 Dec 2016 21:50:59 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate posted six receptions for 58 yards on his six targets in the Week 16 game against the Dallas Cowboys Monday, Dec. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Tate's production has been erratic lately, posting 100-yard games in two of the past four while sandwiched around a pair of mediocre performances. He does have six or more grabs in four straight and eight of the past 10 to help those in PPR fantasy formats.

Lions | Golden Tate has 100-yard game

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 14:05:17 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate caught eight of his 13 targeted passes for 122 yards in a 17-6 loss to the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: One of his passes was a 67-yard strike from Matthew Stafford, and that was more a victim of the Giants giving up big plays than anything else. If Tate can do this against a defense like New York, however, then he's worth starting as a WR1.

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 20:50:43 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate picked up six receptions for 58 yards on a game-high 11 targets in the Week 14 game against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Tate has totaled 19 catches for 280 yards and a touchdown over the past three games. He has re-emerged as a useful WR3 in most fantasy formats after a touch stretch in early November.

Lions | Golden Tate has explosive game

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 14:42:18 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate finished with eight catches and 145 yards, including a 66-yard touchdown scamper, in a 28-13 win over the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Tate took advantage of a porous Saints pass defense on his long touchdown, but the bigger story is how well Tate did overall. Take away that long TD and he still had 79 receiving yards. Tate is a strong WR1 on a Lions squad with plenty of pass-catching options.

Lions | Golden Tate quiet in victory

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 17:54:06 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate posted three receptions for 27 yards in the Week 11 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was targeted four times.

Fantasy Tip: Tate crushed his fantasy owners with three grabs, his fewest since Week 5. He entered with 32 receptions over the past four outings with at least 79 yards in three of the four games. Tate will look to rebound in Week 12 against the Vikings on Thanksgiving. He posted 11 grabs for 79 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 in the first meeting in Minnesota.

Lions | Golden Tate runs away a winner

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 14:58:45 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate finished with 11 catches, 79 yards, and a 28-yard touchdown catch from QB Matthew Stafford in overtime. The Lions beat the Minnesota Vikings, 22-16.

Fantasy Tip: Tate's strong outing elevated his status among fantasy owners. Tate shouldn't be your WR1 but a WR2/WR3 is not out of the question. He and Stafford have developed a nice rapport.

Lions | Golden Tate targeted 12 times in win

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 17:42:48 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate had six receptions for 93 yards in the Week 7 game against the Washington Redskins. He was targeted 12 times.

Fantasy Tip: Tate started out very slowly, and likely was dropped by a high percentage of fantasy owners. However, he has 14 catches for 258 yards and a score over his past two games, and he has been targeted 22 times. Matthew Stafford has re-discovered Tate, and he has re-emerged as a trustworthy fantasy option in most formats heading into Week 8 in Houston.

Lions | Golden Tate finally looks golden

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 20:36:20 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate posted eight receptions for a game-high 165 yards and a touchdown in the Week 6 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was targeted 10 times.

Fantasy Tip: Tate had been a huge disappointment to date, posting just 17 receptions for 134 yards in his first five games, so a lot of fantasy owners likely had benched or dropped him, missing out on this gem. If he is available off the waiver wire he is worth a look in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 7 against Washington.

Lions | Golden Tate may see time in backfield

Sat, 15 Oct 2016 12:26:35 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate may lineup at running back at times during the team's Week 6 game in order to be a receiver out of the backfield.

Fantasy Tip: Tate saw time at running back in the last game and likely will be used there again because of Theo Riddick's injury. Tate has been pretty quiet so far this season but should still be at least a flex option for owners.
