Lions | Golden Tate continues to produce

Sun, 21 Dec 2014 14:37:01 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate posted 62 receiving yards on five catches in the Week 16 game against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Tate continues to add to this career high, as he now sits at 1,224 receiving yards on the season. He and Calvin Johnson are the first pair of Detroit receivers to have 1,000 yards in the same season since 2006. Tate is a solid WR2 or flex play in Week 17 against the Green Bay Packers. He had five receptions for 51 yards in the first matchup with the Pack in Week 3.

Lions | Golden Tate praised by opponent

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 16:33:39 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate is another number one receiver in addition to Calvin Johnson, according to Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Johnthan Banks. Buccaneers defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier said Tate opens up the Lions' passing game and gives Johnson and the rest of the offense more help.

Fantasy Tip: Tate is once again another solid option on FantasyScore this week at $6,700. Tampa Bay is tied for the second most receiving touchdowns allowed to the position this year (16).

Lions | Golden Tate hits 1,000 yards

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 15:44:24 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate had four receptions for 97 yards in Week 12 against the New England Patriots. He went over 1,000 yards receiving for the first time in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Tate has emerged as a must-start option in FantasyScore score with or without Calvin Johnson lining up on the opposite side.

Lions | Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate probable

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:12:05 -0800

Detroit Lions WRs Calvin Johnson (ankle, elbow) and Golden Tate (hip) are both listed as probable for Week 12 against the New England Patriots. Johnson and Tate were both limited in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and Tate was a surprise addition to the injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($7,900) is never a bad option for your FantasyScore rosters, but the New England Patriots secondary isn't shabby, especially of late. Tate ($6,700) may have the tougher go of it Sunday if he's covered by Darrelle Revis all day.

Lions | Golden Tate slated for Revis Island

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 07:37:51 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate is expected to be covered by New England Patriots CB Darrelle Revis, while CB Brandon Browner figures to cover WR Calvin Johnson in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Tate ($6,700; 13.4% of your cap) was only targeted twice last week with Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson looming. The matchup and Megatron's return likely hurt him, and he doesn't have a great outlook this week on FantasyScore either. Johnson ($7,900; 15.8%) was targeted 12 times, but he only had a 5-59 line. His prospects are a bit higher, but one must weigh the price and the potential output.

Lions | Golden Tate not targeted much

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 10:54:40 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate was only targeted two times during the team's Week 11 game, but head coach Jim Caldwell said that was not the plan during the game. "The plays that we call are maybe the same plays where he would have gotten the ball previously. You look at the progressions. There may be a guy in front of him and (the quarterback) may have to go somewhere else. Those are thing that happen more so than we're saying, 'You know what, we're not designing any plays to go to Golden'. That wasn't the case," Caldwell said. Tate finished the game with two catches for 41 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Tate has had a terrific season so far, but there are times when a receiver is not being thrown to during games for some reason. Tate should be still be a starting option this week but will be facing a tough New England Patriots defense.

Lions | Golden Tate could draw Peterson matchup

Sun, 16 Nov 2014 05:59:34 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate could be blanketed by Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson Sunday, Nov. 16. ESPN analyst Merrill Hoge thinks that Peterson is better suited to cover Tate, while CB Antonio Cromartie covers WR Calvin Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Tate ($7,000; 14.0% of your cap) has loomed large all season, but this matchup could be difficult. Johnson ($7,900; 15.8%) might make for the better buy on FantasyScore today if this situation holds true.

Lions | Calvin Johnson expects to return after bye

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 09:32:39 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) said he "definitely expects to play" against the Miami Dolphins after the team's bye week. Johnson has missed the last three games due to a high right ankle sprain. WR Golden Tate has 24 catches for 349 yards and two touchdowns in Johnson's absence.

Fantasy Tip: As soon as Johnson returns to action, he should be returned to fantasy lineups. Tate won't completely disappear, but his value is likely at it's peak for this season.

Lions | Another big game for Golden Tate?

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 19:09:48 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate will be facing the league's 29th ranked pass defense in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: A source said Calvin Johnson (ankle) is likely to sit again, so Tate would be the No. 1 wideout against a leaky Atlanta pass defense. A trip to the end zone and triple-digit yardage total is a good possibility. At $6,900 (or 13.8 percent of the cap), Tate is a sound investment.
