 4 game suspension - Tate has averaged 8.1 targets, 5.6 receptions, and 63.5 receiving yards per game since 2014. The thought of having a WR on your fantasy roster tethered to QB Eli Manning is not appealing. The target volume as the Giants slot receiver is. fantasydata.com
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 The Giants represented a decent spot for Tate, given the dearth of receiving options for the team. But his four-game suspension realy hurts his value for obvious reasons. Because he can still play in the preseason, he should have enough time to develop chemistry with Eli Manning (to the extent there is such a thing anymore). But he should be considered only a borderline WR4 on draft day at this point.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Now 32 years old and coming off his worst season in years. Should still be targeted a bunch but has a very low ceiling.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Samuel is one of several electric athletes in this Carolina offense. He can take any play to the house but also comes with rough weeks every now and then were fantasy owners are given just 2 receptions for a handful of yards. If you are willing to look past those, he makes for a strong flex play.Going into last year, Tate had 90+ receptions in four straight seasons. He was actually on track to do it again to go with 1,200+ yards up until the trade, at which point he became an afterthought in an offense where he wasn't familiar with the playbook Don't be surprised when he returns to the norm from the moment he returns from his suspension since Beckham vacated so many targets.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
His teammate D.J. Moore is the favorite among the fantasy community, but Samuel actually performed better than him last year. Despite playing in just 12 games, Samuel hit WR2-type numbers in four games, while Moore hit that mark just three times while playing all 16 games. He may not have the consistent floor that Moore does, but he can help fill a few bye weeks if neededAs we saw with Tate in Philadelphia last year, it's tough to go to a brand-new team and produce the way fantasy owners have come to expect. He's now on his third team in months, though it helps the Giants lack big-name receivers, so he's likely going to see plenty of targets. Yes, those targets will be coming from Eli Manning, but don't forget that Manning has been able to support Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard as somewhat consistent fantasy options. He's a low-upside WR3/4 option. There's also a four-game suspension looming for him, which would slide him down draft boards even more, though he's appealing the suspension and believes he can avoid any missed games. It's a situation you need to pay attention to before selecting him.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
People are scared of Newton's shoulder, but there's absolutely no reason to be concerned. Players come back from these injuries all the time, and he's already back to throwing and he's going to be 100% for training camp. Samuel suffered a few injuries to end is rookie season, and to begin his sophomore season, but when he returned he looked amazing. He has an 88th percentile SPARQ-x score, a 62nd percentile breakout age, and a 100th percentile speed score. The former second round pick commanded 8 targets per game over the final 5 weeks, was 14th in fantasy points per route run, 16th in fantasy points per target and showed that he was able to run 10 different route combinations last season. This is a guy that had a very limited route tree in his first season, but stepped it up big time last year. He's one of the youngest possible third year WR's and the Panthers didn't add any legitimate WR threats in the draft or FA after losing Funchess.I love Golden Tate as a player. He's one of the best slot receivers in the game, and I was shocked that 1) The Lions traded him, and 2) The Eagles didn't use him more. Tate now moves to the Giants disgrace of an offense. Unfortunately, Tate just won't have the opportunity to be a reliable fantasy asset this season. He'll have good weeks, but he's behind Shepard/Engram/Barkley for targets in the receiving game. I'm not drafting the 4th option in an Eli Manning lead offense.
