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
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 this late in the draft you'd better be thinking hard about adding that upside to your roster.
Tate should see a big boost in numbers with Calvin Johnson retiring. With Johnson out or limited over the last two seasons, Tate has averaged double-digit targets and over 100 yards receiving. He's a proven commodity who deserves priority in your drafts this season even with the signing of Marvin Jones, who I also like.
