Lions | Golden Tate expects more receptions
Mon, 14 Jul 2014 13:45:01 -0700
Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate said he expects to catch more passes in 2014 than he did last season because opponents will be focusing on trying to cover WR Calvin Johnson. "I think if I can stay healthy ... it's going to be fun," Tate said. "I have a chance to catch a ton more balls. I'm going to see a lot of single coverage. I'm probably going to see a lot of No. 2 and No. 3 cornerbacks because everyone's going to be on No. 81."
Tate should have a solid role in the passing game this season, but the team likely will spread the ball around because of the weapons they have on offense. Owners should consider Tate as a No. 3 wide receiver with the chance to become a No. 2 fantasy wide receiver.
