Fantasy Impact: Tate continues to show nice chemistry with quarterback Matthew Stafford. Finally out from under Seattle's run-based attack, Tate is looking at breakout season in Detroit. His current ADP places him around the end of the seventh round, making him a potential steal and a solid WR 2 option in most leagues.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy Football fans far and wide can breathe a small sigh of relief with the news that Tate will begin practice today. The Lions started camp later than most teams but with a whole new offense to learn and a new quarterback to develop chemistry with the sooner Tate came back the better. Not even August yet, Tate should have plenty of time to build a rapport with Matthew Stafford and should be a good value pick in fantasy drafts next month.

Fantasy Impact: This is the first we are hearing of any injuries involving Tate. With camp just beginning and the regular season still over a month away there is little concern here, but this is definitely a situation worth monitoring. Teams are typically cautious in camp so we'd expect Tate back sooner rather than later and he still looks like an enticing WR3 option, particularly in PPR formats.

Has a chance to shine. Expect him to thrive playing opposite Megatron.

Brings much-needed, sure-handed WR2 talent to Detroit.
The Fake Football | Aug 26th
Tate is in a much better situation in Detroit than he was in Seattle, at least for fantasy upside. Lombardi brings a west coast style that should get Tate the ball often and allow him to make yards after the catch, which he excels at.

Overrated talent who doesn't belong being a #2 WR. Should post WR3 numbers in Detroit.

Stafford throws the ball a ton, Tate is a solid PPR selection.

Golden Tate should have WR3 value as the second receiver in what has the potential to be an explosive offense.
FFLockerRoom | Aug 25th
Coming off a career year where he caught 64 receptions for 898 yards and 5 scores, Tate's numbers have been suppressed by the Seahawks' run-heavy offense, but that won't be an issue in Detroit. With his run-after-catch skills we can expect to see Tate move all around in the Lions offense.
Legion Report | Aug 25th
2013 was rock-solid for Tate, but we expect his success to exceed above and beyond that what he has produced to this point. Tate has never gone for 1,000 Receiving Yards in a season, but playing opposite of Calvin Johnson certainly has its benefits. Look for new OC Joe Lombardi to use Tate as New Orleans did Lance Moore, however the athleticism of Tate triumphs anything Moore brought to the table. Tate should see his overall numbers increase across the board along with Targets as his gun-slinging QB has no hesitance of letting it fly downfield early and often. Look for solid numbers all season from Golden Taint!

Tate should push for 1,000+ yards and 6-8 TD's

Moving from Seattle to high-octane Detroit can only be good news for Golden Tate. Our Jamey Eisenberg says the Lions receiver is about to become a Fantasy star.
Legion Report | Aug 8th
Grab McCoy/Charles for sure! WR’s are fairly deep this year, whereas RB’s are not deep at all. Two Stud running backs in Lacy and McCoy/Charles is very hard to pass up. There’s WRs like Golden Tate/Markus Wheaton […]

Jones as well as defensive end Ziggy Ansah, per Josh Katzenstein of The Detroit News.
