|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.
|Golden Tate aiming to exploit single coverage |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(8/26/14) New Lions receiver Golden Tate said his production "can be way better" in Detroit than it was in Seattle, reports ESPN.com.
"I was coming from, you gotta think I was in the toughest division with the 49ers, Rams and Cardinals, defensively, with a run-heavy offense and now I'm going to a pass-happy offense where I'm on the same team as the best player in the league, one of the best players in the league who is going to draw a lot of attention, a lot of double coverage, which is going to leave me with a lot of single coverage by a lot of No. 2 and No. 3 cornerbacks," Tate said, referring to Calvin Johnson.
"So mentally I think I should be able to excel and do very well here."
Tate stressed, however, that his main concern is winning and he won't care what his numbers are if the team goes deep in the playoffs.

|Golden Tate was one of the free agents who improved his Fantasy value this offseason when he went from Seattle to Detroit. Not only did his bank account get bigger with a five-year, $31 million contract, but he gets an upgrade in quarterback from Russell Wilson to Matthew Stafford and is now in a pass-happy offense. Tate has posted modest stats the past two years, including 64 catches for 898 yards and five touchdowns in 2013, but this season he could go for 1,000 yards and at least seven touchdowns. Playing opposite Calvin Johnson should lead to plenty of single coverage, and Stafford won't be inclined to hand off like Wilson did. We like Tate as a No. 2 Fantasy receiver in all leagues, and he's worth drafting in Round 5. He has the chance for a breakout season, and we hope he will take advantage of this opportunity.
