Becoming the clear-cut No. 1 receiver on any team has major benefits, but when your quarterback owns two of the top ten seasons all-time for passing yards, you get a special kind of boost. We get it, Stafford has looked like a shell of his former self, but you can't argue the upside here, and in the middle of drafts, you'd better be thinking hard about adding that upside to your roster.

Golden Tate tallied his first receptions of the preseason on Thursday night, finishing with 41 yards through the air.

Fantasy Impact: Tate is solidified as one of Detroit's top two receivers and will see plenty of targets this season. Through two preseason games Stafford has looked solid, which bodes well for Tate and the Lions offense, who will need to rely heavily on the passing game if they are going to be successful this season.

Has put up some monster numbers in the past with MegaTron sidelined - including back-to-back 150-yard efforts in '14 - so loss of Johnson could mean bigger things for Tate, with his first 100-catch campaign being a realistic possibility
