Week 7 Rankings

With Sterling Shepard seemingly out of the picture for a bit, Tate should continue to eat up targets, as he did versus the Patriots last week. His nine targets ranked as the second-most by a Giants receiver this year, while his 102 yards were the most by a Giants receiver. The Cardinals playmaker returning on defense (Patrick Peterson) doesn't cover slot receivers. That means Tate will see a lot of Tramaine Brock, a journeyman in the league who's struggled while defending the slot. He's seen 12 targets and allowed six catches for 115 yards and a touchdown on them. He hasn't been targeted a lot, which has kept some numbers down in the matchups against him, but that won't be the case with Tate, as he's the No. 1 option in the passing game and should be locked into eight-plus targets. Tate should be in lineups as a high-floor WR3 for this matchup.
