Lions | Golden Tate posts four receptions

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 20:50:02 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate posted four catches for 25 yards in Week 2 against the New York Giants on Monday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Tate had four of the six catches by Detroit wide receivers, but no one really had a huge night with an offense that was run heavy. He'll look for better results in Week 3 against the visiting Falcons.

Lions | Golden Tate on track to play

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 11:25:11 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (finger) fully participated in practice Saturday, Sept. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Tate recorded 10 catches and 107 yards in Week 1 and will continue to be a focal point in the passing game. He will be facing a tougher defense this week but should still be at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver in all leagues.

Lions | Golden Tate a full-go Friday

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 14:32:44 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (finger) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Tate is expected to play without a hitch Monday night. The matchup is difficult, so he's a low-end WR2, in best-case scenario this week.

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (finger) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Tate doesn't appear to be in serious jeopardy of missing out on Week 2, but his status should be tracked heading into the weekend nonetheless. Assuming he's good to go, he's a solid WR2 play.

Lions | Golden Tate racks up 107 yards

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 16:34:29 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate posted game highs with 10 receptions and 107 yards in Week 1 against the Cardinals. He was targeted 12 times.

Fantasy Tip: Tate is Matthew Stafford's top target and he certainly looked the part in the opener. Despite the fact he drew Patrick Peterson in cover, he showed well. He'll look to build on this effort into Week 2 at N.Y. Giants. Tate remains a WR2 in most fantasy leagues.

Lions | Golden Tate to draw Patrick Peterson

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 20:42:19 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate will likely be shadowed by Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson in Week 1, according to Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Tip: Tate is the top option in the Detroit passing attack and a WR2 candidate most weeks, but a matchup with one of the best corners in the game downgrades him into WR3 territory in Week 1.

Lions | Golden Tate a popular target

Fri, 25 Aug 2017 18:59:46 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate caught all five passes thrown his way for 62 yards against the New England Patriots in the preseason Friday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Tate looked every bit the part of Matthew Stafford's go-to target, and he should be one of the safest WR2 options, especially in PPR formats.

Lions | Golden Tate could shift to slot

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 06:30:37 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate could play more in the slot with WR Kenny Golladay potentially ready for a starting spot outside.

Fantasy Tip: Tate is built more like a slot receiver, and he doesn't get enough credit for what he has done the last three seasons somewhat out of position on the outside. He'll remain their top receiving option, and the move could only be a positive. He's a strong WR2 in fantasy.

Lions | Golden Tate supports Matthew Stafford

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 18:30:46 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford needs a contract extension as soon as possible, according to WR Golden Tate. "They gotta get that done," Tate said "He deserves it. He does everything right. You don't have to worry about him getting in trouble. He balls-out. He's tough as nails. He's what you want in a quarterback."

Fantasy Tip: Tate has enjoyed plenty of success catching passes from Stafford, so it is no surprise that he is a believer. Stafford enters the season as a dependable QB1, and Tate is a quality WR2.
