  • Lions' Golden Tate: Limited to 32 yards
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tate grabbed three of four targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 27-24 win over Chicago. It was an uncharacteristically quiet outing for Tate, who had entered the game with at least six catches and 85 yards in four consecutive games. Tate's niche as an underneath target might limit his yardage, but he has been consistent with at least five catches in seven of 10 games this season. In fact, the last time he was held under five catches prior to Sunday's game was in Week 4 against next week's opponent, the Minnesota Vikings. Tate was held to three catches for 29 yards in that contest.

  • Lions' Golden Tate: Tops 100-yard mark
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tate caught seven of nine targets for 113 yards in Monday night's 30-17 win over the Packers. Tate led Detroit in receiving yards, consistently causing the Packers problems from his slot position. Along with having caught seven passes in three straight games, Tate has also topped 85 yards in each game over that span. Such success puts Tate in a great spot ahead of Sunday's visit from the hapless Browns.

  • Lions' Golden Tate: Wearing no-contact jersey
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tate was seen wearing a red no-contact jersey at Thursday's practice, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports. Tate whittled down what was expected to be a multi-week absence into just one with the help of a Week 7 bye. While he was third in offensive snaps (62 percent) behind Marvin Jones (96 percent) and TJ Jones (73 percent) on Sunday against the Steelers, Tate still led the Lions with seven receptions en route to 86 yards on eight targets. If Tate is indeed absent Thursday, it could be for routine maintenance, but the injury report will confirm if an ailment is to blame.

  • Lions' Golden Tate: Snags seven passes
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tate accrued seven receptions on eight targets for 86 yards during Sunday's 20-15 loss to the Steelers. Playing through any residual soreness in his sprained right shoulder, Tate was having himself a nice outing prior to fumbling after a big reception in the fourth quarter. This is only his third time topping 60 receiving yards this season, though, and the fourth time in seven games he wasn't targeted in the red zone. He remains a solid play in PPR formats but, like has been the case his entire career, he loses some luster in standard leagues.

  • Lions' Golden Tate: On track for Sunday night
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tate (shoulder) seems to be on track to play in Sunday's game against the Steelers, Kyle Meinke of reports. Tate was a limited practice participant Wednesday and Thursday and is once again practicing in some capacity Friday. He said Thursday that his shoulder hasn't been much of a hinderance at practice, but he stopped shy of declaring himself ready to play in a game. With Kenny Golladay (hamstring) seemingly headed for another absence, the Lions could be more inclined to take an aggressive approach with Tate. The team will release its final injury report by Friday evening.
