WR - NYG
Week 3 Outlook
Giants wide receiver Golden Tate caught all five of his targets for 47 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chicago Bears.
Tate missed Week 1 due to a hamstring injury but did not appear to be limited on Sunday. It is unclear what the New York offense is going to look like going forward without running back Saquon Barkley, but it could mean more targets for Tate, especially since he often runs routes close to the line of scrimmage.
WR Golden Tate (hamstring) is officially active for Sunday's Week 2 matchup against the Bears.
Tate missed Week 1 due to a hamstring injury, but was "on track" to play Week 2 against the Bears. He is officially active and will slot as the Giants WR2 opposite Sterling Shepard. Tate is currently 79th among all wideouts in latest expert consensus rankings.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Giants WR Golden Tate (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 2.
Rapoport further suggests that if Tate plays, he will be at "full-strength" for a tough but exploitable matchup against the Bears. In his last two games against Chicago dating back to 2019, Tate has scored. Tate is in the WR3 conversation for Week 2 who can creep into the WR2 tier if he scores in his third consecutive meeting against Chicago.
Giants wide receiver Golden Tate is on track to play in the team's Week 2 matchup against the Chicago Bears after missing the team's Week 1 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers with a hamstring injury, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.
After catching 49 of his 85 targets for 676 yards and six touchdowns over 11 games in 2019, it's difficult to know what to expect from Tate in 2020. Not only is there a new coaching staff and offensive coordinator in New York, but Tate is competing with Darius Slayton, Sterling Shepard, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley for targets in the passing game. He'll have the most value in PPR leagues due to his tendency to run routes close to the line of scrimmage, but he is a risky play in Week 2.
WR Golden Tate "was much more active in practice this Friday than last Saturday," per Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post.
Tate missed Week 1 against the Steelers due to a hamstring injury. He is "progressing nicely" and will most likely be questionable against the Bears. Tate is currently 73rd among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus rankings for Week 2.
