Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Tate logged only two limited practices this week, but the fact that he's listed as probable gives reason to think his workload was limited to keep him fresh for Sunday, and not necessarily due to injury limitations. The Lions are poised to lean on Tate a fair amount with Calvin Johnson (ankle) questionable and the duo of Joique Bell (concussion) and Joseph Fauria (ankle) already ruled out.
Head coach Jim Caldwell expects Tate (hamstring) to play in Sunday's game against the Bils, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The extent of Tate's injury is uncertain, but Caldwell's optimism should provide the same to fantasy owners. Expect an update on his status when the Lions release their injury report following Friday's practice.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
