Tate hasn't done much of anything since coming to Philly, and while that may change eventually, it isn't the kind of thing you should gamble on in Week 17. 
Andrew Gould

Tate's snap rates over the last three games: 38.5, 34.4, and 35.4 percent. He has caught eight of 11 targets for 63 yards in those contests, mustering 13 yards in a Week 16 game where Nick Foles registered a franchise-record 471 passing yards. The midseason acquisition looks like a sunk cost in Philadelphia's offense, so don't trust him despite enjoying his best game with the team (7 catches for 85 yards and a TD) against Washington.After locking down the NFC's top seed, the Saints will start Teddy Bridgewater. If that's the case, Brees will break his own NFL record in completion percentage (74.4) despite tallying his fewest passing yards (3,992) since going to the Big Easy in 2006. Don't reach too high for his age-40 season in 2019 drafts.
