Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Drafting Golden Tate is never very exciting or sexy but when you're in a pinch over your flex spot, he's one of the better options you can have. He should be 2nd-year QB, Daniel Jones' safety blanket which is why he is, as usual, considerably more valuable in PPR formats over standard. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Golden Tate had his season majorly affected by injury since 2010 but still proved very effective while on the gridiron. He regularly managed double-digit half-PPR points and when you're drafting a guy in the 12th round, that's outstanding output. He's a real sleeper going into this season and could prove very valuable if the Giants offence has enough passing volume.Justin Jefferson has regularly been under-estimated compared to the big three of Ruggs, Lamb and Jeudy and that's simply not an accurate representation of his ability. Now falling into a brilliant opportunity in the wide-open Minnesota back-field, Jefferson will get the perfect chance to prove himself and I believe he's the rookie you want in 2020. He's expected to play mostly out of the slot but showed in 2018 that he's very capable of bouncing outside so he should play on most downs. Adam Thielen's stats prove that the slot snaps are most valuable in Minnesota so Jefferson should be the hot ticket in town. Excitingly, he's available well into the double-digit rounds and is the perfect late-round dart throw, especially in PPR.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Closing in on the age of 32, Tate is nearing the end of his NFL career. Sure, he's a smaller receiver, and they do tend to hold up better than the big-bodied receivers, but Tate has taken a beating over the middle of the field while racking up yards after the catch. Now competing with Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley for targets, he's a very low upside fantasy receiver. If he remains healthy, he'll likely finish as a top-40 fantasy receiver, but he's not going to be someone who thrusts you to a fantasy championship.The landing spot in Minnesota is a good thing for Jefferson, as Stefon Diggs is gone and Adam Thielen is going to be 30 years old (with back problems) at the start of the season. But for now, Jefferson is just a middling WR4 due to the low volume available in the Vikings offense.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Tate still has plenty left in the tank, but this offense may be too crowded for him to be a consistently weekly fantasy option. With Sterling Shepard, Tate, Darius Slayton, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley all vying for targets, it's unlikely that one player significantly outproduces the rest. This season, Tate's nothing more than a WR4 unless things open up in this passing game.Justin Jefferson landed in a beautiful spot for fantasy football, as he steps in alongside Adam Thielen and will assume the Stefon Diggs role. Thielen and Jefferson are the only true players there that should command targets and we know that Thielen has started to deal with some injuries the past couple of years. Jefferson should easily see over 100 targets in year one and may bring even more upside if something were to happen to Adam Thielen.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Tate missed four games last year after his suspension but he had a very solid year when he was on the field. He finished the season ranked 31st among wide receiver in fantasy points per game (half-PPR formats) and continued to excel in producing yards after the catch. Tate will be 32 years old when the season starts and will continue to compete for targets with Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley. But in full PPR formats at least, he should be a viable flex option most weeks. In standard or half-PPR leagues, however, draft him only as a bench player. 
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Was heavily targeted with Jones under center. Will be a boring flex if no one is brought in.2019 Slot % Diggs - 14.7 Thielen - 29.3 Bisi - 34 Beebe - 52.5 (barely played) Justin Jefferson is going to be a WR2 right out of the gate. His biggest obstacle? Not Adam Thielen, but passing volume. No one had over 100 targets and Cook was 2nd on the team with 63. Injuries played a part in this but the Vikings went from 606 ATT in 2018, fired Defilippo, 466 ATT in 2019. The slot roll was basically a committee in 2019, Jefferson should consolidate that in 2020
