Golden Tate puts up decent fantasy numbers in loss

Al Messerschmidt

Golden Tate caught seven passes for 64 yards in Week 8. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks WR Golden Tate had a nice rebound game in Week 8. Against the Detroit Lions, Tate hauled in seven catches for 64 yards. More importantly, he caught all seven targets, a big boost after his crucial drops against the 49ers in Week 7.

Tate also caught a crucial 4th-and-2 to set up the team's game-leading TD later. They would later blow the lead and lose 28-24.

Fantasy Impact: It was a nice bounce-back after being blanked on the stat sheet last year, but Tate is still way too inconsistent to be counted on as a fantasy option.

Tate lives and dies with Seattle's passing offense, and there's no telling what week he will live. He's little more than a roster stash in most fantasy leagues.
