Tate brought in eight of nine passes for 85 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Buccaneers.
Tate now has back-to-back eight-catch outings following a two-week lull during which he posted a modest seven catches for 39 yards. The 29-year-old PPR superstar's five-yard touchdown in the second quarter was his first since Week 10 and allowed him to equal last season's total with three games still remaining. He'll look to continue his quest for a second straight 1,000-yard season against the Bears in Week 15.
Tate caught eight of 10 targets for 69 yards during Sunday's 14-9 loss to the Ravens.
Tate led the team in both targets and receptions, but he struggled to produce much aside from his long catch of 24 yards. He totaled just seven catches for 39 yards over his previous two games, so even this modest showing is an improvement on his recent production. Tate remains one of the team's top offensive options and will have a chance to thrive next week against a struggling Buccaneers defense.
Tate secured four of eight targets for seven yards while rushing twice for 13 yards during Thursday's 30-23 loss to the Vikings. He also returned one punt for 13 yards.
Tate owners probably aren't too thankful for this Thanksgiving Day performance, as the shifty pass-catcher was unable to gain much separation against a Vikings secondary that entered the league allowing just 6.5 yards per pass attempt, the fifth-lowest figure in the league. Even when Tate got open, his quarterback missed him, as Matthew Stafford ultimately finished the day with one of the lowest completion percentages of his career. On a positive note, Tate showed well on his lone punt-return attempt, which he received due to the absence of Jamal Agnew (knee). With that said, Tate still isn't instilling much trust in fantasy owners as the fantasy playoffs near, considering the Notre Dame product has managed just 39 receiving yards on 12 targets across his past two games. He'll look to buck that trend in Week 13 against a Baltimore secondary that's allowed just 6.4 yards per attempt in 2017 -- an even stingier mark than Minnesota's.
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.
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.
