2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
With the release of former 1st round pick Mike Williams prior to training camp, the Seahawks opened up a spot in their starting lineup and it seems clear that Seattle would love for Tate to fill that position. Unfortunately, this seems more the case of a team handing over a starting position than a player earning it. In fact, Williams’ release is a curious and risky move given lead receiver Sidney Rice’s injury history and leaves the team open to the possibility of starting Tate and 2nd year former undrafted free agent Doug Baldwin at some point in 2012… ouch. Tate, the team’s 2nd round choice in the 2010 draft, improved upon his poor rookie season with 33 receptions for 375 yards and a pair of touchdowns but there seems little evidence that he is ready to be a consistent performer. In 27 career games, he has topped 50 receiving yards just twice, a pretty low number for a player considered to be a game-breaker coming out of Notre Dame. Tate isn’t worth owning in redraft leagues and is a marginal dynasty prospect.

News From The Past 90 Days
Lions HC Caldwell talks up WR T.J. Jones     -- Fri Jun 24 1:00 pm --

Third-year receiver getting pre-camp hype
“TJ really has got to take another step forward,” head coach Jim Caldwell said. “He’s a guy that does a lot of things well. “He can return for you. He’s got return ability. But then also, he’s got a little scat back ability. He can catch screens for you. He can take off and go when he gets a seam. We really expect him to come forward and be a little bit more of a prominent threat.” (DetroitLions.com)

FF Today's Take: T.J. Jones is currently sitting fourth on the wide receiver depth chart behind Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and Jeremy Kerley. Even with the Lions needing to replace production from Calvin Johnson, Jones in all likelihood would need an injury to a receiver higher on the depth chart in order to become fantasy relevant. He's a late-round dart throw / free agent type in redraft leagues.
