2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
After a monster 2014 that saw him catch 99 passes for more than 1,300 yards, Tate’s numbers took a tumble last year thanks to the inept Lions offense early in the season, and the return to health of Calvin Johnson. Two seasons ago Tate put on a clinic in the games he filled in as the No.1 when Johnson missed time. He gave us a glimpse of the elite after the catch ability he possesses, and should thrive in what I think will be a passing game based on quick timing throws. Tate flourishes in space, and gives quarterback Matt Stafford a reliable target, even if he seemed to be a little too close to the line of scrimmage at times last year. In fact, despite catching 90 passes, Tate only racked up 813 yards, good for only 9.0 yards per catch, over 4 yards-per-catch less than his first year with the Lions. Tate’s 90 receptions were good for 9th in the NFL, but his yardage total was only good for 33rd. Because of the struggles of the O-line, Tate was sent out on an overabundance of bubble screens and short slants, and he just couldn’t break big gains. With a reworked scheme, and fresh bodies up front, Tate should be free to work father downfield, and a serious uptick in yardage is in order. If he can find the end zone a little more frequently, Tate should return solid WR2 value for much of the season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Not looking good for Marvin Jones
Expected to sit with thigh injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 4, 8:15 am

Detroit Lions
Lions WR Marvin Jones (thigh) is a long-shot to play vs. Saints, source said. Promoting WR TJ Jones from the practice squad spoke to that (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: WR T.J. Jones has been called up from the practice squad giving an indication that Marvin will be on the Inactive list today. If he sits, expect Golden Tate, Eric Ebron, Theo Riddick and Anquan Boldin to receive the most targets from Matthew Stafford against the Saints.


Injury Trio of Lions expected to play Week 8
Riddick, Washington and Ebron all nursing lower-body injuries
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 27, 6:45 pm

Detroit Lions
Theo Riddick (ankle), Eric Ebron (ankle, knee), Dwayne Washington (ankle) all expected to play Sunday vs the Texans. (James Palmer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Riddick's return should put Golden Tate's resurgence to the test, as the former was stealing many of the short passes that are the latter's bread-and-butter. Ebron is a high-upside TE2 but should be ignored this week against a defense that has shut down tight ends all season long. Washington should take over the early-down role Zach Zenner has occupied of late, and he could be a serviceable flex considering Houston's recent woes stopping the run.


Injury Zach Zenner, Justin Forsett to share workload
Dwayne Washington not expectedt to play
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 16, 7:15 am

Detroit Lions
Lions' RB Dwayne Washington, listed as questionable with ankle injury, will not play today, per source. Zach Zenner and Justin Forsett carry (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Lions are depleted at running back with Theo Riddick (ankle) and now Washington (ankle) ruled out. Neither Zenner or Forsett are fantasy options. Golden Tate might be used a bit more in the short passing game as a result.


Injury Marvin Jones shows up on injury report
Limited practice; hamstring injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 29, 7:50 pm

Detroit Lions
Marvin Jones is on Thursday’s injury report as a limited participant in practice after not being on the report at all after Wednesday’s practice. That suggests that Jones may have come down with the injury during practice and will make Friday’s practice one to watch for a better idea about how much the hamstring might affect him against the Chicago Bears on Sunday. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: The WR1 after three weeks, Jones will need to get a full practice in on Friday in order to quell fears of him missing time against the Bears in Week 4. If he is forced to sit out, Anquan Boldin and Golden Tate become much better fantasy options against Chicago's shell of a defense, while Eric Ebron could also be nearing must-start territory as well.
