RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

The Lions have been looking for a viable complement to Calvin Johnson for a while. Tate might be their best candidate yet. Playing with Russell Wilson in Seattle the last two years, Tate never cleared 100 targets, but he was highly efficient with the chances he got, posting YPT marks of 10.3 and 9.2, respectively. At 5-10, 202, he is stout, strong and compact, and he has good speed (4.42 40) and playmaking ability (seven catches for 40-plus the last two seasons.) Lining up opposite Johnson, Tate will see single coverage on nearly every snap in what should remain a pass-heavy offense under new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, and there’s no established No. 3 WR or dominant tight end with whom to contend. The Lions will still throw heavily to both of their backs, and Johnson will require a big slice of the pie, but Tate should have a bigger workload than he did in Seattle.

2013

Tate earned his keep last year as the team's downfield playmaker – he averaged 10.3 YPT, second in the NFL among the league's 71 60-target WR. Moreover, five of his 45 catches (on 67 targets) were for 40 or more yards, the same number Calvin Johnson had on 204 targets and 122 catches. At 5-10, 202, Tate isn't big, but he's strong and compact and has good speed when he hits his top gear. It's unclear, however, what his role will be now that Percy Harvin – a faster, more explosive and more athletic version – is the team's lead dog. Sidney Rice is also still around, so it's hard to see Tate exceeding last year's workload.

2011

Tate enters training camp as the number three receiver on the depth chart, which sounds pretty good until you see that Sidney Rice and Mike Williams are ahead of him. Tate struggled mightily in his rookie year, finishing with only 21 catches for 277 yards and one touchdown. He may be able to find some more space this season thanks to Rice and Williams, but it's hard to see a big fantasy season from Tate.

2010

A second-round draft pick, Tate has received a lot of preseason hype after a standout career at Notre Dame. Seattle's lackluster WR unit gives Tate an opportunity to climb the depth chart, but keep in mind the track record of rookie receivers in the NFL. And while Tate is a gifted after-the-catch runner, he's not a burner or downfield threat, something the Seahawks need. He's small at 5-10, and scouts question his upper-body strength, which could make getting off the line difficult against bumb-and-run coverage. Tate has upside, but there will be better lottery tickets in most fantasy drafts.
