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.
Amendola will continue to have a prominent role for the Patriots, which gives him the potential for some good performances, but when Rob Gronkowski (ACL) is healthy and Edelman is playing well, Amendola will lag behind in production, especially when you factor in Shane Vereen and the young receivers in Aaron Dobson, Brandon LaFell and Kenbrell Thompkins. Amendola is a late-round flier in standard leagues and a No. 4 receiver in PPR formats.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
Stafford throws the ball a ton, Tate is a solid PPR selection.
 
  
Chet Gresham

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.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Overrated talent who doesn't belong being a #2 WR. Should post WR3 numbers in Detroit.
Could blow up in year two but health is such an issue.
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Tate should push for 1,000+ yards and 6-8 TD's
Flex option but could very well be the top Patriots receiver if he stays healthy
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Has a chance to shine. Expect him to thrive playing opposite Megatron.
A PPR specialist who breaks far too easily.

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!

Golden Tate should have WR3 value as the second receiver in what has the potential to be an explosive offense.
