Golden Tate proving himself each week
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Lions wide receiver Golden Tate is no Calvin Johnson, to be sure, but you wouldn't be able to tell just based on his stat line over the last four games. Tate put together another monstrous performance in Week 7 against the Saints.

Tate hauled in a career-high 10 passes Sunday, giving him 32 receptions for 448 yards over the last four games. Those are positively Megatron-esque numbers, and he has added two touchdowns in that span. Tate has been the team's top option in each game with Johnson sidelined, and should continue to be so until Johnson is at full health.

Tate has at least five receptions in each game this season, so it isn't like he has only been useful with Johnson limited. At this point, he has to be active in all Fantasy formats, and should be considered a must-start option against a dreadful Falcons defense in Week 8.

Golden Tate rips Saints for 10 catches, 154 receiving yards
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Lions receiver Golden Tate set career highs with 10 catches for 154 yards in the Week 7 comeback win over the Saints. Tate drew a game-high 13 targets as he helped Detroit overcome the absence of top wideout Calvin Johnson.

Tate turned what looked like a short reception into a 73-yard touchdown with 3:38 remaining in the game. He broke one tackle and outraced the Saints' secondary to the end zone. Tate now has three 100-yard receiving efforts in his last four games.

He'll play the Falcons in London in Week 8.

Bounce back game seems likely for Golden Tate
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

If Calvin Johnson's ankle injury keeps him out yet again in Week 7, Fantasy owners should feel confident in relying on Golden Tate. Yes, even in light of his subpar performance in Week 6.

Tate dropped a few passes and ended up with just 44 yards against the Vikings last week, but should have more success against the Saints this Sunday. New Orleans' defense has proven vulnerable against wide receivers this season, allowing 30-plus Fantasy points in three of five games. Eight different receivers have finished with 9-plus Fantasy points against the Lions, so Tate could find room to succeed even if Johnson takes the field.

Tate has been targeted 32 times in the last three games as the team's No. 1 option in the receiving game, including 12 times in his subpar Week 6 performance. Don't be afraid to lean on him in what might turn into a shootout.

Lions WR Golden Tate trying to move past so-so Week 6 outing
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With star receiver Calvin Johnson sidelined with an ankle injury, Lions wide receiver Golden Tate finished with seven catches for 44 yards in a 17-3 win Week 6 at Minnesota. Though, Tate expressed some disgust with his performance.

"I just didn't play my best ball," Tate said, per MLive.com. "I still found my ways to get open, but my hands, I just left them in Detroit, I think."

Pro Football Focus credited Tate with two drops in Week 6. Tate indicated he should have had 3-4 more catches Sunday.

Johnson could be sidelined again Week 7 against the Saints. Tate vows to be prepared either way.

"As far as my preparation, I don't do anything different," he said. "I try to prepare like I'm the No. 1 guy, no matter whether I'm the No. 1 or the No. 5. That's just how I am now. There's a feeling that I need to step up a little more than I have in the past."

Lions' Golden Tate struggles to fill in Week 6
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Lions wideout Golden Tate had a tough time filling in for Calvin Johnson Week 6.

Tate did lead the club with seven catches, but gained just 44 yards. Tate was targeted heavily, earning 12 looks from quarterback Matthew Stafford. Stafford was under pressure most of the game, and was forced to check down more often than normal. That probably led to Tate averaging just 6.3 yards per catch.

Tate will take on the Saints Week 7.
