Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate has been removed from the team's injury report heading into Monday night's game against the New York Giants. What It Means: Tate had been dealing with a minor finger injury he suffered in Week 1, but it looks like he'll be a full-go for Week 2. After all, Tate suffered the injury early in the Lions' first game and still managed 10 catches and 107 yards. Our models have Tate at 5.9 catches, 65.6 yards and 0.31 touchdowns on 9.1 targets this week. His projected 11.6 FanDuel points rank 15th as his $7,400 cost is 12th among all...

Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate said that his injured finger "feels good" and that he doesn't think it's necessary for him to wear any protective gear for Monday's game against the New York Giants. What It Means: Tate didn't suffer any broken bones and is no longer wearing a splint on his injured left ring finger. After hauling in 10 passes for 107 yards last week, the wideout said he was in "a little pain" but that the finger was a non-issue during the performance. With Detroit carrying an implied total of 20.0 points into this week's Monday night showdown, Tate is...

Golden Tate (finger) limited in Lions' practice on thursday

Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate (finger) was "limited" in Thursday's practice. What It Means: Tate injured his finger in Week 1 but has insisted he is 'fine' and will be ready to go versus the New York Giants on Monday night. The fact he is even practicing at all would seem to confirm this. Tate had one of his finest games of the season versus the Giants last year when he caught 8 passes for 122 yards. numberFire's algorithms see Tate as a top-25 wideout in Week 2 with 5.9 catches, 65.6 yards, and 0.3 touchdowns for 11.3 FanDuel points Source:...

Lions' Golden Tate says his finger 'feels great'

Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate says his left ring finger "feels great," following an injury that forced him to wear a splint after the game. What It Means: Tate added that the finger was still a little sore, but it didn't stop him from catching 10-of-12 targets for 107 yards in the Lions' win. The team isn't back in action in Week 2 until Monday night against the New York Giants, so we should know more about Tate's Week 2 status by Thursday or Friday. After posting 15.7 FanDuel points in Week 1, our models project Tate for 65.6 yards on 5.9 catches and 0.31...

Kenny Golladay (ankle) still limited at Lions' practice

Detroit Lions rookie wide receiver Kenny Golladay (ankle) remained limited at Thursday's practice. What It Means: The third-round pick should be fine for Sunday's opener against the Arizona Cardinals. He's someone to hold onto re-draft leagues after an impressive summer, but it may take a few weeks for him to carve out fantasy relevance in the Lions' offense with Golden Tate and Marvin Jones both healthy to start the year. Against the Cardinals in Week 1, numberFire's models project Golladay for 2.6 receptions, 33.6 yards, and 0.15 touchdowns with an expected 5.4 FanDuel points...

Lions' Golden Tate likely to be shadowed by Patrick Peterson in Week 1

Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate will likely be matched up with Arizona Cardinals star cornerback Patrick Peterson in Sunday's season debut. What It Means: Given Peterson's experience and athleticism, it's almost a sure thing that he'll line up opposite the crafty Tate on the majority of snaps in this week's head-to-head meeting. That should leave Marvin Jones to go at number-two corner Justin Bethel, but the Lions shouldn't expect much from Tate if the Cardinals gameplan to shut him down and force others to step up. Our models expect Tate to be peppered with 9.2 targets...

Lions' Golden Tate could crack 90 receptions for fourth-straight season

Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate has an opportunity to record his fourth-straight 90-plus reception season in 2017. What It Means: Tate has at least 90 catches in each of his three years with the Lions, averaging 93.3 per year in that span, and once again serving as Detroit's top wideout, he's well positioned to hit that mark again. numberFire's models project Tate to turn 143.5 targets into 93.6 receptions, 1067.2 yards and 5.5 touchdowns, making him our 21st-ranked fantasy wideout.

Lions WR Golden Tate could be headed for more time in the slot

He's been good for Detroit. Real good. But it's possible he's headed for a role change this year anyway due to the rise of Kenny Golladay.
