Fantasy Outlook 2010

What makes Tate so great?  YAC baby - Yards After Catch.  Coach Pete Carroll loves Golden Tate, as indicated by picking him up in the second-round.  Tate is a big play threat and can turn a simple swing pass into a 70-yard touchdown in the blink of an eye.  He will likely line up opposite T.J. Houshmandzadeh as the No. 2 receiver by Week 3 or 4, and though veteran Deion Branch has the inside track on Tate at this point, Branch hasn’t played a full season since 2005 and has been a big bust for Seattle.  Carroll has indicated that he wants to get Tate the ball and will probably have him returning kicks from the get-go.

~ Seattle’s QB situation is in flux, as veteran Matt Hasselbeck is on his way out and fourth-year Charlie Whitehurst, who hasn’t thrown a regular season pass in his career, is knocking on the doorstep

~ Housh and Branch are low quality No. 1 and No. 2 receivers respectively, and both have been subpar since coming to Seattle, so Tate will get a chance to show what he can do in the open field

Watch out for that band!

There are many things that are golden in life: the Golden Gate Bridge, the Golden Girls, the city of Golden, Colorado.  Then there’s Golden Tate.  Tate isn’t as tall as the bridge, hot as the girls, or as cold as the town (where the Coors Brewing Co. factory is - he’s definitely not as cold as the Rockies), but that’s not to suggest he’s a lesser being.  The second-round pick electrified crowds during his three years at Notre Dame and often played larger than his stature.

Even though his hobbit size of 5’10” is a lot shorter than many big-time wide receivers, Tate has a knack of going up and getting a ball when he commits to it.  His speed (he ran a 4.42 40 at the Combine) allows him to get open with just the slightest hesitation on the cornerback’s part.  What’s impressive is that he set school records for receptions and receiving yards in a season last year with 93 receptions for 1,496 yards and 15 touchdowns.  His big play ability in the open field makes him dangerous against any team… and marching band.

Making headlines before the season starts

This is not fantasy related in any way, but we just had to put this in. Tate has already made headlines as a Seahawk before even stepping onto the field for two reasons.  Firstly, he robbed a doughnut store in the basement of his condo complex at 3 a.m. in June because he was drunk and needed some delicious maple bars.  He got off with a warning from the police, and received even less from his coach who deadpanned this, "No, I'm not disappointed at a guy being at a doughnut shop at 3 in the morning when they got maple bars like Top Pot has."  For the record, Carroll did end up reprimanding him.  

For those conspiracy theorists out there, Top Pot Donuts sells donuts at Seahawks' games. 


Secondly, Tate loves singing to some Taylor Swift (nothing wrong with that).  Something tells us that he's not going to be the next American Idol though.

If you happen to have either T.J. Houshmandzadeh or Deion Branch on your team, you'll definitely want to handcuff Golden to them as he might even end up Seattle's leading fantasy receiver by the end of the season

Injury Report


Golden is golden. No worries here

Golden Tate (calf) was upgraded to "full" in Tuesday's practice.


Pyro's take: Golden Tate will be ready to ride when the Detroit Lions face-off against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football.

Golden Tate caught 8-of-11 targets for 73 yards


Pyro's take: As usual the PPR monster for the Detroit Lions was active in the passing game, just not the touchdown portion. His receptions matched a season high. Keep him in mind as the Lions face the Eagles next week.

Tate has Tasty Matchup in Week 11


Pyro's take: Detroit is riding high after going into Lambeau and taking the Pack down a peg. In Week 11, Detroit is the underdog against Oakland. This should keep Stafford active. Vegas is predicting they score a little over 3 TDs. Plus, the biggest factor is Oakland's secondary. Tate should draw DJ HAyden. According to PFF, he is the 2nd worst rated CB in the league. He has surrendered 5 TDs to opposing WRs.

Keeps the Momentum Going

Golden after the catch...

Pyro's take: In the third preseason game of 2015, Tate made 3 catches for 91 yards including a spectacular 62 yard TD toss from Stafford.

Golden Tate has been a steady producer for the Detroit Lions this year, giving them a second option at the wide receiver spot, something they havent had in a long time. Last week he caught five of seven targets for 51 yards. This makes the third straight game he has five receptions or more.

Pyro's take: Tate hasnt scored yet, but that should come soon enough. He is a high-end number three on your fantasy squad, and could make an excellent play at the flex in PPR leagues. The Lions face-off against the Jets this Sunday.

Megatron happy to have Tate

“I think you realize that he’s a very important piece to our offense,” head coach Jim Caldwell said of Tate. “He adds a lot just in terms of his ability to catch the ball, run with it, block, he’s a high-energy guy. His leadership is extremely important as well.”

Tate is the best No. 2 receiver the Lions have teamed with Johnson and that’s an important piece to have if the Lions are going to be a better all-around offense.

“Playing away from one of the best receivers in the league and one of the best to ever play the game is going to be fun,” Tate said. “He’s going to open it up for me and I’m going to do my best to hold my part and open it up for him.

“I think we can be dangerous if we just play fundamental-sound football."

Johnson has been begging for another receiver to step up and take advantage of one-on-one matchups the last few years. He thinks he finally might have that missing piece in Tate and tight end Eric Ebron.

"Golden's going to get a lot of one-on-one coverage," Johnson said. "With all the weapons we have, those one-on-ones will go full circle and I might get some more myself.

Pyro's take: Tate is an interesting fantasy player this season. Last season in his fourth season in Seattle he had career highs with 64 catches for 898 yards. He also added five touchdowns. That was playing for a team that only threw for 3,236 yards. Now Tate joins the Lions as their second best target in the passing game, which threw for 4,482 yards. Golden has a golden opportunity in Detroit, and should be able to reach his first 1,000-yard season. He should still be considered a WR3 as you enter your drafts.

Tate to join Lion's passing attack

The team announced Wednesday that it has agreed to a five-year deal with wide receiver Golden Tate. Terms were not disclosed, but Tate told ESPN's Josina Anderson the deal is for $31 million with $13.25 million guaranteed.

Tate was a second-round draft choice by the Seahawks out of Notre Dame in 2010 and put together his best season last year with 64 receptions for 898 yards and 5 touchdowns.

Pyro's take: Tate should provide a great second option for Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions. The Lions second wide receiver position was one of the most attractive fantasy positions around the league and Tate is a great fit. He can play in the outside and in the slot and has been a reliable receiver in a run oriented offense. Tate is best after the catch where he can showcase his speed (4.42) and ability to work in space which is something the Lions needed. Moving to a more pass happy attack should really bolster Tate's fantasy value.

Tate with the Lions has 80 catch 1,200 yard potential with around 8 touchdowns.

Tate could be enticed to become a Jet

Free agency can offer an exciting influx of talent for any team with cap space, but Jets fans badly want one position filled more than any other: wide receiver. Pass catchers will be the focal point of the Jets’ offseason, and rightfully so, as they have quite possibly the worst receiving corps in the entire league.

Fortunately for the Jets, GM John Idzik should have just shy of $50 million to play with, according to overthecap.com.

There’s reunion potential for Idzik and Tate here, as the two were together in Seattle. Tate said he’d love to remain with the Seahawks, but money can change things. Tate has improved in each of his four seasons and is coming off his best year yet, leading the Seahawks in receiving yards with 898 on 64 catches and five touchdowns.

Pyro's take: There is no doubt that the Jets need help at receiver, and with over $50 million in cap space they will have a good chance at enticing Tate away from Seattle.

Tate only made $880,000 in 2013, and he has already stated that he wants a deal better than what Riley Cooper got, which was a 5-year deal worth about $4.5 million per year. The Seahawks only have $18 million in cap space, so if Tate wants that big of a deal he may need to go elsewhere.

If Tate ends up in New York it will not be a boon to his fantasy potential, as the Jets are still a woeful offense that still have questions about their quarterback.
