Latest News
Golden Tate's value tied to Calvin Johnson
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6:19 pm ET) As Chris Towers so deftly noted Sunday, Golden Tate's breakthrough performance in which he caught eight passes for 116 yards Week 4 at the Jets may have had something to do with Calvin Johnson playing only 57 percent of the Lions' snaps because of a sprained ankle. So presumably, Tate owners would like to know how Johnson is doing now.

Well, he missed practice Wednesday but recently told The Detroit News his ankle is "definitely better" than it was last week. He missed practice both Wednesday and Thursday leading up to that game.

I'm thinking the Lions would rather give Johnson a chance to get healthy than run him out there as a decoy every week, so if he's active again Week 5 against Buffalo, I wouldn't be particularly optimistic about Tate's chances.

Then again, the floor is pretty low for Tate. In four games, he has yet to go for less than 51 yards. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank him in the 20-30 range at wide receiver, which would make him an advisable starter in 12-team leagues. That sounds about right.

Golden Tate cracks the century mark in win over Jets
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/28/14) With Calvin Johnson not at 100 percent, Lions wide receiver Golden Tate shouldered the load, registering his first 100-yard game with his new team in Week 4 against the Jets at MetLife Stadium.

Tate caught two passes on the opening drive of the game, including a 35-yard pass down the middle for his longest gain of the day. Johnson was often used as a decoy, which benefited Tate, who received a season-high 10 targets. He caught eight passes for 116 yards, averaging 14.5 yards per grab in a 24-17 defeat.

Tate has 317 receiving yards through his first four games, though he's yet to score a touchdown over that span.

The Lions will host the Bills in Week 5.

Assessing Golden Tate's value after Week 4
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/28/14) Lions wide receiver Golden Tate did a nice Calvin Johnson impersonation Sunday, with Megatron limited mostly to work as a decoy in a 24-17 win over the Jets.

Tate led the team in receptions and yards in Week 4, as Johnson took a backseat with an ankle injury. Johnson's limitations probably skewed Tate's numbers, however, as he is not likely to see 10 targets moving forward. The Lions throw it so much to Johnson, when healthy, that Tate's role will continue to be limited, as good as he can be. 

You probably won't find an owner willing to beat down your door for Tate, especially since he has yet to find the end zone. Still, if you have Tate as your third or fourth best receiver, you might want to think about shopping him this week, even someone in your league is desperate for receiving help.

Of course, Johnson's injury was such an issue Sunday, there is no telling if it will continue to limit him moving forward. If Johnson cannot be Megatron, Tate's value should go through the roof. 

Golden Tate brings in five passes Week 3
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/14) Lions wide receiver Golden Tate picked up five catches Week 3 against the Packers.

Tate gained 51 yards during the contest. He was targeted seven times, which ranked third on the club. The Packers did a decent job holding the Lions offense in check, which explains why no receiver on Detroit was able to put up big numbers.

Tate will look for more Week 4 against the Jets. 

Time to start Golden Tate in Week 3
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/14) I'm excited about this game because there should be a lot of Fantasy points between all the main receivers on both teams, including Golden Tate.

He would clearly be fourth if you're ranking them with Calvin Johnson, Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, but Tate makes for a top-15 Fantasy option in this matchup.

The Packers have given up two touchdowns to opposing receivers with Ricardo Lockette in Week 1 and Eric Decker last week, and they should have allowed a third touchdown to Jeremy Kerley on the Jets non-timeout call.

Tate is second on the Lions in targets behind Johnson (24) with 14 and once upon a time he had a big catch against the Packers when he played with the Seahawks in the Fail Mary game in 2012.

That was actually his second touchdown in the game and we'd love a repeat performance this week.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.
