Tate caught one of three targets for seven yards in Sunday's 29-23 loss to the Cowboys. Taking Tate away seemed to be part of Dallas' game plan, as there was a Cowboy draped over him almost every single time he ran a route. However, he also saw 16 fewer snaps than in any of his previous three contests and saw just one target prior to the fourth quarter. Nelson Agholor, who initially enjoyed just a slight edge in playing time in the first weeks after Tate was acquired, has now out-snapped the 30-year-old by 29 in each of the last two games. Fantasy owners will have to hope Tate sees the field more Week 15 on the road against the Rams.
Tate caught all seven of his targets for 85 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 28-13 win over the Redskins. He also hauled in a successful two-point conversion. Tate got off to a hot start, going for a 19-yard gain and gathering a six-yard touchdown on Philadelphia's first offensive drive. He later ripped off a 32-yard reception, his longest play since joining the Eagles, and secured a two-point conversion to begin the fourth quarter. In doing so, Tate not only caught everything thrown his way, but enjoyed his best game with his new team. That gives him encouraging momentum ahead of Week 14's meeting with the Cowboys.
Tate caught four of his eight targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 25-22 win over the Giants. Tate co-led the team in targets with Zach Ertz and has now seen at least a share of said team lead in back-to-back games. The Notre Dame product has yet to surpass 48 yards or find the end zone in three weeks with his new team. However, he will have an excellent opportunity to end both streaks in Week 13 against a Washington defense ranked 25th against wide receivers.
Tate caught five of eight targets for 48 yards and lost eight yards on a run during Sunday's 48-7 loss to the Saints. In just his second game for the Eagles, Tate led the squad in targets, catches, and yards -- albeit in the team's worst offensive showing of the season. The Eagles expended a third-round pick for Tate and clearly intend to get their value's worth by trying to get him involved. Expect that to continue. Philly looks bad but is only two games out of the division and has three games left against Dallas and suddenly quarterback-deficient Washington. Next Sunday brings a middle-of-the-pack Giants pass defense.
Coach Doug Pederson said Tate will take on a larger role Sunday in New Orleans, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Tate played just 18 of 62 snaps (29 percent) in his first game with the Eagles in Week 10, catching two of four targets for 19 yards in a 27-20 loss to the Cowboys. He should be ready for more playing time Week 11, potentially getting snaps inside against struggling slot cornerback P.J. Williams. A larger role for Tate likely would come at the expense of Jordan Matthews.
