2014 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, Williamsí release is a curious and risky move given lead receiver Sidney Riceís 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 2012Ö ouch. Tate, the teamís 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 isnít worth owning in redraft leagues and is a marginal dynasty prospect.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Bell, Tate among Lions missing minicamp     -- Thu Jun 12 5:35 pm --

Expected back in time for training camp
Minicamp is over and that gives six weeks of either rest or rehab for some of the Lionsí walking wounded. DE Ziggy Ansah, RB Joique Bell and WR Golden Tate didnít take part in any of the three minicamp practices this week, but each is expected back for the start of training camp. The Lions arenít certain thatíll be the case for CB Chris Houston, but are hopeful. (DetroitLions.com)

FF Today's Take: Bell missed the mandatory minicamp with a knee injury while Tate was nursing a shoulder. The team doesn't seem concerned about either injury, so Bell should remain squarely on the low-end RB2 bubble while Tate should have no issue playing at a WR3 level this season.
Doug Baldwin expected to start opposite Harvin     -- Thu Jun 5 5:00 pm --

Expected to fill void left behind by Golden Tate
Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell, asked who will replace WR Golden Tate, said Doug Baldwin will move to the ďXĒ or split end position this year, while also still playing some inside. Percy Harvin will play primarily the "Z", or flanker, spot. He also said of Sidney Rice that they ďreally like what heís looking likeĒ and that he will also play outside. (Seattle Times)

FF Today's Take: Tate caught 64 passes for 898 yards and five scores last year, which is roughly the ceiling for just about any receiver in the run-heavy Seahawks' offense. Baldwin has recorded at least 50 receptions in two of his three seasons despite being the third option in the passing game at times, so he clearly has a rapport with QB Russell Wilson. He should be considered a decent, but low-upside WR4 in fantasy.
Lions going up-tempo in 2014     -- Thu May 22 8:30 am --

OC Joe Lombardi bringing over pieces of Saints playbook
First-year Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, an offensive assistant with the Saints for seven seasons, said after he was hired that his playbook is a combination of ideas he brought from New Orleans, leftovers from the Lionsí last offense, and things Caldwell and others have added from previous stops. One tenet of the system, and something the Lions have stressed repeatedly in their off-season practices, is playing at a fast pace in order to control the tempo of the game. (Detroit Free Press)

FF Today's Take: The Lions have the skill position players to shatter previous offensive team records if they can quicken the pace the way Chip Kelley did with the Eagles a year ago. Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush, Joique Bell and Golden Tate can all be fantasy stars in Lombardi's new offense.
