Time to start Golden Tate in Week 3
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3:27 pm ET) 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.

Golden Tate has five catches
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/14) Lions receiver Golden Tate had a quiet game Sunday in Week 2 at Carolina. He finished with just five catches for 57 yards on eight targets.

Tate will look to make more plays in Week 3 against the Packers at home.

Golden Tate nearly cracks century mark in debut
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/9/14) Outside of Calvin Johnson, Golden Tate was the only other targeted receiver for the Lions in a Week 1 win over the Giants.

Tate nearly surpassed the century mark, but didn't catch his first pass until the second quarter. He came down with a short 4-yard reception with 11:10 remaining in the first half. He made a leaping 44-yard grab in the third quarter for his longest gain of the night. He caught all six of his targets for 93 yards, averaging 15.5 yards per grab in a 35-14 victory.

Tate will look to build off that performance in Week 2 against Carolina. While with the Seahawks, he caught four of his six targets for 51 yards in Week 1 against the Panthers last season.
Golden Tate facing a familiar matchup in Week 1
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/5/14) Lions receiver Golden Tate may have a familiar matchup come Week 1 against the Giants.

Although Tate was practically a non-factor when Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie last covered him in the Super Bowl, the new wideout will probably play out of the slot for Detroit, which would mean he would be shadowed by former Seattle teammate Walter Thurmond.

Wide receivers against the Giants averaged 16.00 Fantasy points per game in standard CBSSports.com leagues, which was fourth-best in the league, only behind Tennessee, Seattle and Carolina. When Tate faced the Giants in December of last season, he was limited to only 25 on two catches and six targets.

Tate is expected to give Calvin Johnson some breathing room and eventually become Stafford's No. 2 option in the passing game. He should be viewed as a borderline No. 2 wide receiver and a decent flex for Week 1.
Lions sit out several starters for preseason finale
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/28/14) The following starters will not suit up for the Lions Thursday night against the Bills: Quarterback Matthew Stafford, receivers Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, running back Reggie Bush, center Dominic Raiola, guard Rob Sims and tight end Brandon Pettigrew, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, cornerback Rashean Mathis, defensive end Jason Jones, safeties James Ihedigbo and Don Carey and linebacker Kyle Van Noy.
