Tate is the Seahawks leading wide receiver and biggest play-maker until Percy Harvin returns to action, and the Seahawks need to keep him involved. With the season-ending injury to Sidney Rice, the Seahawks need their wide receivers to step up and make plays and Tate did catch everything thrown his way. On the year, Tate has 36 receptions for 468 yards and three touchdowns.
Fantasy impact: The Seahawks are struggling with consistency on offense, but Tate's poor fantasy performance was disappointing considering the numbers he put up against the St. Louis Rams the week before. Tate is still a decent fantasy option and should rebound in Week 9 when the Seahawks face the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons have the 21st-ranked passing defense.
