  • Lions' Golden Tate: Scores in heartbreaker
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tate caught seven of 11 passes for 58 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-26 loss to Atlanta. Tate was having a quiet afternoon until he hooked up with Matthew Stafford for an 11-yard score late in the third quarter. Things really picked up in the end when Tate was targeted thrice on the game's final drive, which ended with Tate missing the game-winning score by inches. Tate's ability to make tough catches underneath makes him a perfect fit for the quick-strike passing attack Detroit has gone to in recent seasons, but it also requires a high volume of targets for Tate to be particularly effective. That setup can be frustrating when looks are few and far between like in Week 2 against the Giants, but expect Tate to be Stafford's favorite target more often than not. Through just three games, Tate already has eight more targets than any other Lions receiver.

  • Lions' Golden Tate: Quiet on MNF
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tate caught four of four targets for 25 yards during Monday's 24-10 victory over the Giants. Missing from Tate's stat line is the fact quarterback Matthew Stafford attempted just 21 passes en route to the second-lowest passing total of the gunslinger's career -- which obviously didn't bode well for the success of a volume-dependent receiver like Tate. Considering he saw 8.4 targets per game last season, not to mention 10 looks in the season opener, look for Tate to play a much bigger offensive role in weeks to come.

  • Lions' Golden Tate: Returns to full practice
    By RotoWire Staff

    Tate (finger) was a full participant in Friday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Tate had his left ring finger in a splint following his 10-catch Week 1 performance, but he didn't break the bone and still managed a limited practice Thursday. His return to full participation Friday sets him up for his usual high-volume role Monday against the Giants.

  • Tate (finger) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Tate indicated prior to the session that the left ring finger injury he suffered in the season opener Sunday against the Cardinals wasn't any sort of fracture, and his return to practice in limited fashion seemingly supports his comments. The wideout may experience a little more pain when he catches passes due to the finger issue, but it doesn't look to be anything that with jeopardize his status for the Lions' Week 2 matchup with the Giants.

  • Tate said Thursday that his left ring finger isn't broken and that he expects to play Monday against the Giants, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. Following his big game (10 catches, 107 yards) in the Week 1 win over the Cardinals, Tate was spotted with a splint in his left ring finger after the contest, fueling speculation he may have fractured the digit. Tate's clarification of his injury should come as some relief to fantasy owners, but there's still a chance the Lions could end up limiting his involvement in practice this week if the splint remains necessary. The team should provide an update on his status at the conclusion of Thursday's session.
