Golden Tate finds end zone for fantasy owners

Michael Hickey

The Seahawks wide receiver put in a consistent effort in Week 5 against the Colts. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate caught five balls 61 yards and a touchdown in a Week 5 loss at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts.

Tate was able to stretch out during the game and use his athleticism to haul in a few highlight-reel catches. One of those receptions was called back for a penalty. Though a 61-yard performance as a receiver is nothing to write home about, Tate was targeted a team-high 11 times by quarterback Russell Wilson.

Fantasy impact: Its safe to say at this point that team and teammate Doug Baldwin are Wilson's favorite receivers, as Sidney Rice has simply not materialized as a go to guy in Seattle. That said, it will be interesting to see how the dynamics of the teams receiving game changes when Pro Bowler Percy Harvin gets back from injury.

Fortunately for Tate fantasy owners at this moment, it doesn't seem that the Seahawks are looking to rush Harvin back into the lineup. The bad news part of the equation is that the Seahawks take on the Tennessee Titans in Week 6. Heading into Week 5, the Titans ranked in the top 10 in terms of fewest fantasy points allowed to wide receivers.
