 DET has been one of the most pass-happy offenses over the past few seasons, and Tate has been the biggest beneficiary - a running back in WR clothing, he's once again a safe bet for 90+ catches, 1,000+ yards and 5-6 scores
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After seeing 107 targets in 2017, Jones' incredible touchdown rate propped him all the way up to the WR5 in standard leagues. He caught a touchdown once every 11.9 targets, which is almost double the average rate for wide receivers, which stands at one every 22.8 targets. After scoring just four touchdowns the prior season in the same offense, you have to wonder just how sustainable his touchdown total is. On top of that, the Lions continue to hype up Kenny Golladay, who is another big-bodied wide receiver to take away some of those looks. Jones is a solid fantasy asset, but don't pay for last year's numbers. He averaged just 5.3 targets per game with Golladay in the lineup, but 9.8 targets per game when he was held out. He's going to have some big games, but he'll likely have to share the stage with Golladay at times. I get it, Tate isn't a sexy pick that'll win you your fantasy league, but he's now finished as a top-34 receiver in each of the last six seasons, including a WR19 finish last year while Marvin Jones had a miraculous season. With the exit of Eric Ebron, some targets may open up over the middle of the field, while Jones now has to fight for perimeter targets with Kenny Golladay. Tate's role in the offense is safe, as he's now seen at least 120 targets in each of the last four seasons. Fun fact: Tate totaled WR3 or better numbers in 61.5 percent of games in 2017, while Adam Thielen was at just 56.3 percent, yet Thielen is going multiple rounds earlier.
Staff Rankings
QB List
Typically known for his acrobatic catches, the Detroit Lions receiver had a fantastic season last year, ending shockingly as the #5 receiver in standard points leagues. That startlingly high level of production was buoyed by a very high nine total touchdowns, however there's reason to think Jones could post similar scoring rates this year. Jones was the go-to receiver in the red zone last year, earning 43% of the Lions red zone targets, good for 6th in the NFL, and on the other end of the field, Jones functioned primarily as the Lions deep threat receiver, granting him chunk yardage. While I don't expect the exact same prolific catch rates and TD production that catapulted him into the elite receiver tier given a couple key additions to the Lions' runnin back corps, don't be surprised if Jones ends the season among names like Thielen, Green, and Adams squarely within the top 10.When looking at Golden Tate's statistics outside of PPR, you likely wouldn't see the upside of the #17 receiver: he had lots of receptions (92), but he barely eclipsed 1,000 yards and only netted five touchdowns all season. So what gives? Those receptions ARE valuable folks, even when they don't directly lead to scoring. With a top 15 target share last season, the league's best catch rate, and a league-leading 636 yards after the catch last season, Tate turned his high production into high volume scoring. Now, you could doubt Tate's ability to sustain such prolific rates of yardage following his catches, but the Lions go out of their way to set up these plays for Tate, giving him plenty of chances to reproduce these stats. All in all, Golden Tate has all the makings of a receiver with a remarkably high floor, and the potential to produce top 15 WR numbers given a little bit of touchdown luck.
Chet Gresham

Jones isn't a PPR stud, but he sure was great on deep passes last season and finished as the fifth-best fantasy receiver in non-PPR and 11th in PPR. He'll have his inconsistencies as a home run hitter, but I think he's found a strong-armed quarterback to keep him in he fantasy points.Tate will remain a solid player in a strong passing offense. Since joining the Lions, he's caught 90 or more passes in all four seasons in Detroit and should be set up for similar numbers in 2018.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
A stunning WR5, Jones submitted an NFL-high 18 yards per reception with the second-best DVAR behind Antonio Brown. He led the league in yards on contested catches (467) and posted a play of more than 20 yards in all but two contests. For all of these superlatives, he's also unlikely to sustain elite production with 3.8 catches per game. This could be a case, however, of a clear regression candidate turning into a value if he keeps falling beyond the fifth round. Tate did what he always does, tallying his fourth straight 90-catch campaign. He's averaging 1,056 yards per season since joining the Lions, but his TD tally has always stagnated from the four-to-six range. The 30-year-old is far more appealing in PPR formats, where he has already banked three top-20 WR seasons with Matthew Stafford.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Jones has some competition for targets in DET and he's usually fairly TD dependent. I'm not enthralled with him this yearTate remains a solid WR2 with upside in any given week but the pending rise of Golladay has me a bit sheepish
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Jones wasn't great to close the season and he is definitely due for some touchdown-rate regression, but he was the #4 fantasy receiver last year in the league, so even though he will take a big step backward, he should still be considered a clear-cut WR2.Looking for a sure thing in the fourth round? Tate has 90+ receptions each of the past four seasons and over 4,000 yards in that same period. He hasn't missed a game in five years and is a safe bet to return solid WR2 numbers once again.

Jones showed us all a glimpse of his upside with StaffordTate will continue to ball with Stafford under center
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Jones was actually the 8th ranked fantasy wide receiver with 61 receptions for 1,101 yards and 9 touchdowns. He has a lot of talent and should at least be a WR2 in 2018, but the Lions will probably run the ball more in 2018.Tate averaged 8.3 fantasy points per game and is a solid WR3 option. The Lions will probably not pass the ball as much with new head coach Matt Patricia.
