Golden Tate in concussion protocol

Pro Football Talk's Josh Alper is reporting that Giants WR Golden Tate is in the league's concussion protocol.

Fantasy Impact

This should not impact Tate's season as he is already out for the first four weeks due to a suspension for PED's. He will have some value in PPR formats upon his return to the lineup.

Golden Tate loses his appeal of four-game suspension

New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate's appeal of his four-game suspension for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances was denied, the team announced on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

This result was expected, even though Tate claims that he never failed a drug test and actually reported his taking of an illegal substance by accident to the league. The league has a zero-tolerance policy for performance-enhancing substances, and Tate will now miss the first four weeks of the regular season. He will be eligible to return before the team's Week 5 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.

Golden Tate reportedly appealing four-game suspension for PED violation

Giants wide receiver Golden Tate is reportedly appealing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s Performance Enhancing Substance policy, according to a report from NFL insider Adam Schefter. Schefter adds that Tate believes he has a legitimate case.

Fantasy Impact

Giants wide receivers have been dropping like flies at the start of training cample. Corey Coleman is done for the year with a torn ACL, Sterling Shepard is dealing with a thumb injury that has him week-to-week, and now they could potentially be without Tate for the first month of the season. The NFL has typically taken a strong stance against PED use and has put the onus on the players to be aware of what they are putting into their bodies, making appeals tricky and often unsuccessful. If Tate truly does have a strong case, his suspension could potentially be reduced or rescinded, but fantasy owners should prepare to be without him for four weeks.

Golden Tate headed to Giants on four-year contract

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the Giants are signing Golden Tate to a four-year, $37.5 million contract.

Fantasy Impact

Schefter adds the deal includes $23 million guaranteed. Tate had been linked to the Patriots recently but it's unlikely New England would've offered this big of a commitment. The 30-year-old will slide in alongside Sterling Shepard, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley as pass catchers in a post-Odell Beckham world for the Giants. It also looks like New York is sticking with Eli Manning at quarterback, which will likely cap the entire offense's fantasy upside.

Golden Tate: Patriots are interested

NFL Network reports the Patriots are interested in free agent slot receiver Golden Tate.

Fantasy Impact

The 30-year-old makes a lot of sense for a New England team that is thing at receiver right now. Tate failed to mesh with the Eagles after getting sent to Philly at the trade deadline, but he remains a highly productive player.
