Closing in on the age of 32, Tate is nearing the end of his NFL career. Sure, he's a smaller receiver, and they do tend to hold up better than the big-bodied receivers, but Tate has taken a beating over the middle of the field while racking up yards after the catch. Now competing with Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley for targets, he's a very low upside fantasy receiver. If he remains healthy, he'll likely finish as a top-40 fantasy receiver, but he's not going to be someone who thrusts you to a fantasy championship.

Tate still has plenty left in the tank, but this offense may be too crowded for him to be a consistently weekly fantasy option. With Sterling Shepard, Tate, Darius Slayton, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley all vying for targets, it's unlikely that one player significantly outproduces the rest. This season, Tate's nothing more than a WR4 unless things open up in this passing game.

Golden Tate had his season majorly affected by injury since 2010 but still proved very effective while on the gridiron. He regularly managed double-digit half-PPR points and when you're drafting a guy in the 12th round, that's outstanding output. He's a real sleeper going into this season and could prove very valuable if the Giants offence has enough passing volume.

Tate missed four games last year after his suspension but he had a very solid year when he was on the field. He finished the season ranked 31st among wide receiver in fantasy points per game (half-PPR formats) and continued to excel in producing yards after the catch. Tate will be 32 years old when the season starts and will continue to compete for targets with Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley. But in full PPR formats at least, he should be a viable flex option most weeks. In standard or half-PPR leagues, however, draft him only as a bench player.

Was heavily targeted with Jones under center. Will be a boring flex if no one is brought in.
