Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 11: Golden Tate is safe option

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Golden Tate has been performing well as the Seahawks' new No. 1 receiver. Will the return of Percy Harvin cut into his fantasy numbers?

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate has been clicking in recent weeks. Elevated to the No. 1 position after Sidney Rice tore his ACL, Tate has been enjoying his best production of the season. In the past four games, he averaged 4.5 catches for nearly 77 yards, with three touchdowns in that span.

Tate had his best game yet against the Atlanta Falcons last week, racking up 106 yards and a touchdown on an insane one-handed grab. He has 41 catches, 574 yards and four scores on the season, adding 384 yards on punt returns.

Fantasy impact: Percy Harvin is set to come back this week, making some people wonder if he will siphon off some of Tate's numbers. We wouldn't worry about it happening right away -- the Seahawks are expected to keep Harvin on a snap count against the Minnesota Vikings.

Tate is safe to roll out as a WR3 for at least one more week. He's the best weapon Russell Wilson has in the passing game right now and has even more value in fantasy leagues that count return yards.
