  • Tate caught six of seven targets for 97 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-24 win over the Browns. Tate's 40-yard touchdown with 4:28 to play completed the scoring while putting the contest firmly out of reach. He's been phenomenal over his past four appearances, hauling in 27 receptions for 392 yards and two touchdowns while notching at least 86 yards in every game during that stretch. Start Tate with confidence next week in Chicago.

  • Lions' Golden Tate: Tops 100-yard mark

    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: No listing Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tate didn't appear on the Lions' injury report Thursday. In the portion of practice open to the media, Tate was seen in a non-contact jersey, which wouldn't have been surprising after playing through an AC joint sprain Sunday. Avoiding the injury report altogether, he clearly was able to handle every rep by the end of Thursday's session. He'll thus prepare for Monday's road matchup against a Packers defense that has yielded 8.6 YPT and six touchdowns to wideouts this season.

  • 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.
