  • Posted: 10/7/2018 7:07pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate caught five of his seven targets for 42 yards in a 31-23 win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Tate saw his lowest totals in catches, targets and receiving yards, and Detroit's early lead was probably the main reason. He should be back on the WR1/WR2 border when the Lions return to action in Week 7.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 2:45pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate caught eight passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Tate was questionable for the game but was a big factor in the passing game despite his injury. He can be a solid No. 2 receiver for owners next week against the Green Bay Packers.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 8:07am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (hip) will be able to play in the Week 4 game, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Tate has been the main option in the Lions passing game for the first three weeks of the season. He has been targeted 36 times and has posted 257 yards and one touchdown. Tate should be considered a No. 2 fantasy receiver in all leagues this week.

  • Posted: 9/28/2018 1:10pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (hip) was added to the injury report for Week 4 against the Dallas Cowboys due to a hip ailment and he is listed as questionable.

    Huddle Up: It's a bit of a surprise and late addition to the injury report, so fantasy owners should have alternate plans just in case Tate cannot go. If Tate cannot play it would mean additional targets for Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 11:26pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate turned 13 targets into seven receptions for 109 yards in Week 2 versus the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Tate has accumulated 14 catches on 28 targets through two games, which is great for his fantasy owners. The bad part is a 50 percent catch rate is not great for a player who spends so much time in the slot. Nevertheless, he should remain busy this season as Detroit figures to see plenty of negative game scripts. He'll be a solid WR2 play again in Week 3 versus the New England Patriots.

  • Posted: 9/10/2018 9:18pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate posted seven receptions for 79 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 game against the New York Jets while posting a game-high 15 targets.

    Huddle Up: Tate was very busy, and the Lions probably passed a little more than they would have liked since the game started getting out of hand in the second half and they had to abandon the run. It's a great start for Tate, who remains a solid low-end WR2 or must-start WR3 in all PPR formats. The Lions travel to meet the 49ers in Week 2.

  • Posted: 7/29/2018 6:20am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate said he never seriously considered holding out even though the five-year, $31 million contract he signed prior to the 2014 season has been a relative bargain for the team. Tate is in the final year of his current deal but would prefer not to be actively involved in negotiations on a possible contract extension now that training camp has started.

    Huddle Up: The soon-to-be 30-year-old Tate has caught 90 passes or more in each of the last four seasons, eclipsing the 1,000 yard mark in three of those campaigns. He should be viewed as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3, with added value in PPR fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 3/29/2018 7:39pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate could have talks of a long-term contract extension begin over the summer, according to general manager Bob Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Tate is averaging more than 1,000 yards per season in four years in Detroit, catching at least 90 passes in every season. At worst, he's a strong WR3 in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 1/28/2018 8:41pm ET

    Texas A&M WR Christian Kirk reminds Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com of Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate because of his elusiveness after the catch, and Jeremiah believes Kirk can make a similar impact.

    Huddle Up: Kirk's size and speed makes him a potential weapon in the slot, and while his landing spot will determine how quickly he can make a fantasy impact, Kirk should be one of the first few receivers off the board in rookie drafts.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 4:29pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate posted three receptions for 14 yards in Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Tate had a few pretty strong stat lines for fantasy owners throughout the season, but he managed just six grabs for 47 yards on 11 targets in Week 15 and Week 16 when he was needed most.

  • Posted: 12/16/2017 8:45pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate caught three passes on five targets for 33 yards in a 20-10 win over the Chicago Bears Saturday, Dec. 16.

    Huddle Up: It was a quiet evening from Tate, but while he has been a little more inconsistent than in recent years, he is still on pace for almost 100 catches. Keep starting him, especially in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 7:10pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate finished with eight receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown on his nine targets in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Tate has eight receptions in back-to-back games, and he has managed at least three receptions in each of his 13 games this season. He also returned to the end zone for the first time in four games. Tate has been a steady low-end WR2 or must-start WR3 in most fantasy leagues this season.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 7:39pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate caught eight passes on 10 targets for 69 yards in a 44-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: It was Tate's most receptions since the season opener, but he remains on pace for 90-plus catches. His safe floor makes him a WR2 candidate in PPR format against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 5:19pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate caught four passes for seven yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12. He also rushed for 13 yards on two carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Tate was not able to get on track against the Vikings and has been held to 39 receiving yards in the last two games. He continues to be one of the top targets in the passing game for the Lions and can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 2:36pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate racked up three receptions for 32 yards in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Tate tied a season-low with just three receptions. He also had three catches in Week 4 against the Vikings, the team's next opponent in Week 12 on Thanksgiving.

  • Posted: 11/14/2017 5:22pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) has played only 59.2 percent of his team's snaps since suffering a Week 6 shoulder injury that was expected to keep him out multiple weeks. Over that same time, Tate has posted at least 85 receiving yards in every game - the only player in the NFL to put together such a streak that long in the last two years.

    Huddle Up: He's also caught at least six passes in each of those games, making him a veritable PPR goldmine over the last month. Tate is a handful for many of the league's best corners, but spends much of his time in the slot, increasing his potential to catch Matthew Stafford's eye on a regular basis. Tate's relative lack of touchdowns keeps him from entering the high-end WR1 conversation, but he offers one of the safest floors among receivers in fantasy year after year.

  • Posted: 11/6/2017 8:51pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate caught seven of nine targets for 113 yards in the team's Week 9 win Monday, Nov. 6, versus the Green Bay Packers. It was a season high for Tate in receiving yardage.

    Huddle Up: This was also the second time Tate has reached the 100-yard plateau this season, and first since the opening week, when he had 10 catches for 107 yards against Arizona. Owners would surely like more touchdowns, as the former Seahawk has just two on the campaign, but overall, Tate is a fine WR2 option to trot out on a weekly basis due to his excessive number of targets. Hopefully he's able to pad his touchdown total through the second half of the year.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 8:53pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate hauled in seven receptions for 86 yards on eight targets in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also lost a fumble.

    Huddle Up: Tate was gimpy in practice after an ankle injury last week in New Orleans, but he quickly shook that off and had a nice game for fantasy owners. He did not seem to have any restrictions or a snap count in this one, and he can be trusted heading into Week 9 against the Green Bay Packers.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 4:15pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) is active for the Week 8 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Tate was listed as questionable due to an AC joint sprain, but he made it through all three practice sessions this week as well as satisfying the coaching staff with the pregame workouts. We'll keep an eye on him to see if he plays a decreased amount of snaps or he can play without limitations.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 6:06am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) is preparing to play in Week 8's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Tate was listed as questionable on the injury report due to an AC joint sprain but was able to take part in all three practice sessions during the week. The Lions have a Sunday night game this week and Tate could see a limited number of snaps, making him a very risky fantasy option. If he is active, he should be viewed as a WR3.

  • Posted: 10/27/2017 1:14pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 27, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Tate appears to have a decent chance to play but owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he will be in uniform. He is a risky option since the Lions play on Sunday Night Football, so owners will need other options available if they want to use Tate. He will be facing one of the best passing defenses in the NFL but can still be a No. 3 receiver in most leagues if he is active.

  • Posted: 10/27/2017 8:40am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) is practicing Friday, Oct. 27.

    Huddle Up: It's unknown if he was a full participant, but his week-long participation bodes well for him playing this week. He would be a WR3 option against the New Orleans Saints due to possible limitations.

  • Posted: 10/26/2017 1:20pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 26.

    Huddle Up: Tate may be a game-time decision this week, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He is a solid fantasy option when he is healthy, but owners will need other options available in case he is ruled out for the game.

  • Posted: 10/26/2017 9:40am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) said he's rehabbing his shoulder hard, but he doesn't know if he'll be ready for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: We'll know more Friday, but it's hard to lean on him this week as he could be limited against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

  • Posted: 10/25/2017 3:14pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 25.

    Huddle Up: Tate reportedly had his arm in a sling and was expected to miss 'a few weeks', so it's a good sign he was able to do anything. Even though he was able to practice, wait until Friday when the official injury report comes out before deciding on him if you normally rely upon him in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/25/2017 11:46am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 25.

    Huddle Up: Reports over the weekend stated Tate's arm was in a sling and previous reports suggested Tate would miss 'a few weeks' with a sprained AC joint, so any kind of practice qualifies as amazing progress. Skepticism is advised here, and the fact Detroit plays on Sunday night means owners should not count on him this weekend. However, until more information becomes available, it appears Tate's absence may not be as long as initially thought.
