Golden Tate: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Tate, who was held to three receptions for 17 yards in Seattle's Super Bowl victory against the Broncos, said he would take less money as a free agent to stay with the Seahawks, the Seattle Times reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

An unrestricted free agent, Tate made $630,000 this season. While Tate said he would sign for "a little less" to stay in Seattle, he also said, "I've still got to take care of myself and my family." With a healthy Percy Harvin and Jermaine Kearse seemingly ready to break out, the Seahawks can afford to let Tate walk, especially considering the salary-cap challenges that lay ahead. In his fourth NFL season, Tate posted careers highs for catches (64) and yards (898) and scored five touchdowns. But while supremely athletic, Tate is more role player than game-breaker. Including the playoffs, Tate had two 100-yard games this season and just five games with more than 65 yards receiving.
Tate caught four passes on six targets for 31 yards against the 49ers on Sunday.

Tate is coming off back-to-back two-catch efforts, but he should be a go Sunday in a game that the Seahawks will play with securing the NFC West title and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs in mind.

Tate (hip) practiced in full Thursday.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Tate's absence from drills Wednesday was clearly a precautionary measure in order to avoid unnecessary setbacks. The wideout is averaging 5.5 targets in the last six games, but he may find rough sledding Sunday against a 49ers defense that's yielded two WR scores during that same stretch.
Tate (hip) didn't practice Wednesday, John Boyle of the Everett Herald reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Tate is joining fellow wideout Percy Harvin with a hip concern, which is of unknown severity. During the past six games, Tate has averaged one 20-plus yard reception per game, while totaling 23 receptions (on 33 targets) for 376 yards and three touchdowns. Due to his reliability, owners should monitor his activity level closely as Sunday's game at San Francisco approaches.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

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.
