Lions | Golden Tate expected to miss a few weeks

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 10:14:22 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) is scheduled to undergo an MRI soon, but the expectation is he will miss "some time," according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Tate and his fantasy owners catch a bit of a break with Detroit on bye in Week 7, but the source believes he will miss a few weeks, leaving the Lions without their top receiver. His expected absence could free up targets in the slot for Eric Ebron or help the team get Theo Riddick more involved in the passing game once again. Detroit could also be getting Kenny Golladay from a hamstring injury, although he is not going to replace Tate's snaps in the slot.

Lions | Golden Tate suffers shoulder injury

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 17:56:37 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury late in the third quarter of the Week 6 game against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Tate had a nice game, so hopefully this injury isn't something to keep him out long. The good news is that he has two weeks to rest with the bye Week 7.

Lions | Golden Tate posts 96 yards, TD

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 16:54:22 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate racked up seven receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in the Week 6 game against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Tate had his largest yardage total since he opened the season with 107 yards on 10 grabs in Week 1 against the Cardinals. He has been a bit erratic so far this season, but he has WR3 potential when the matchup is favorable. Unfortunately the Lions have a bye in Week 7.

Lions | Golden Tate has torched the Saints

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 21:06:57 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate faces the New Orleans Saints in Week 6, and he has averaged eight catches for 115 yards and a touchdown in his last three meetings with the Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Tate leads the team in targets, receptions and yards, and he should be a strong WR2 in a friendly matchup against the Saints.

Lions | Four grabs for Golden Tate

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 15:25:22 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate managed five catches for 48 yards on eight targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Tate has 29 grabs on 40 targets through five games which is good for fantasy owners, but he hasn't had a 100-yard game since Week 1 while visiting the end zone just once back in Week 3. Both of those streaks could end in Week 6 when he faces a favorable matchup down in New Orleans.

Lions | Golden Tate totals four touches

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 15:02:47 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate posted three receptions for 29 yards on five targets in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings and he added one run for just two yards.

Fantasy Tip: There will be better days for Tate. He has been limited to 14 receptions for just 112 yards over the past three games after exploding for 107 receiving yards in Week 1. He still has 24 grabs over his four games and remains a decent PPR fantasy option heading into Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

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.
