New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate caught four passes for 36 yards in a win over the Bengals on Sunday. The story of the game for Tate, however, was getting a season-high nine targets as Darius Slayton (undisclosed) had his playing time severely limited due to what head coach Joe Judge called "some bumps and bruises." Unfortunately for Tate, starting QB Daniel Jones (hamstring) also went down with an injury so it seems Colt McCoy will take over under center for the time being. With a backup QB, it'll be hard to trust Tate in fantasy as New York's targets have been impossible to predict behind Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram.
New York Giants WR Golden Tate was good four receptions for 36 yards on nine targets in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals, and he also attempted a pass which fell incomplete.
Fantasy Spin: Tate had his most catches since Oct. 11 in Dallas, but his yardage totals remain rather marginal. He is nothing more than a WR5 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams at this point. The Giants play the Seattle Seahawks in Week 13.
New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate caught two-of-five targets for 44 yards in a win over the Eagles on Sunday. Tate was playing in his first game since he landed in hot water for social media posts by him and his wife criticizing Tate's role in the offense, among other things. The five targets, however, are just about what he was averaging prior to this week so it doesn't appear head coach Joe Judge made an attempt to get Tate more involved. Tate is playing behind Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton and is only a fantasy option in the deepest of leagues.
New York Giants WR Golden Tate caught two passes for 44 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 10. He was targeted five times during the game.
Fantasy Spin: Tate has recorded only six receptions in the last two games and appears to be behind Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton on the depth chart. Fantasy players can keep him on the bench until he is more involved.
New York Giants WR Golden Tate (knee) is officially active for the Week 10 game.
Fantasy Spin: Tate has posted two touchdowns in the last two weeks but has only four receptions in his last three games. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues but can be benched if better options are available.
New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate (knee) is "trending in the right direction" ahead of a Week 10 matchup against the Eagles. Tate has missed two games this year, one with a hamstring injury and the other as discipline for comments he made concerning his lack of targets. The veteran wide receiver has turned up his fantasy production a bit in his last few games, though he'd still check-in as the team's third option behind Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton. Tate is on the WR4/5 border.
New York Giants WR Golden Tate (knee) is expected to play in Week 10's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: Tate had been listed as questionable on the injury report after suffering a knee injury during practice Thursday, Nov. 12, but he was able to return to practice on a limited basis Friday, Nov. 13, which bodes well for his availability this afternoon. Assuming that he is active versus the Eagles, he can be used as a flex option in deeper fantasy formats.
New York Giants WR Golden Tate (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 13, and is listed as questionable for Week 10.
Fantasy Spin: Tate suffered the injury during practice this week and may be a game-time decision. Fantasy players can check the inactive list for his official status but may want to look for other starting options.
New York Giants RB Devonta Freeman (ankle) did not practice Friday, Nov. 13, and has been ruled out for Week 10 against the Philadelphia Eagles. WR Golden Tate (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable. CB Isaac Yiadom (calf) was added to the injury report and limited in practice Friday; he is also listed as questionable. WR Sterling Shepard (toe, hip) was limited in practice all week but has been removed from the injury report. DB Logan Ryan (non-injury), DL Leonard Williams (non-injury) and TE Kaden Smith (concussion) practiced in full Friday and also no longer appear on the injury report.
New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate (knee) is expected to be back on the active roster in Week 10 against the Eagles. Head coach Joe Judge said he was "optimistic" the veteran receiver can play this week, but added he wants to see Tate in practice first. Tate was held out of last week's game against Washington for disciplinary reasons stemming from an issue on social media. Even if he suits up, it's hard to recommend Tate in fantasy. He'll be playing behind Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard with Evan Engram also in the mix for targets from Daniel Jones.
New York Giants WR Golden Tate (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 12.
Fantasy Spin: Tate suffered the injury during practice, so fantasy players will need to monitor his status over the next few days. He could be a possible flex option if he plays, but players can consider other options for their lineups.
New York Giants RB Devonta Freeman (ankle), WR Sterling Shepard (toe, hip) and WR Golden Tate (knee) were limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 12. DB Logan Ryan (non-injury), DL Leonard Williams (non-injury) and TE Kaden Smith (concussion) practiced in full.
New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate (knee) suffered a knee injury late in practice on Thursday and is being evaluated by the medical staff. The injury sounds minor, but this could certainly keep Tate from playing in Week 10 against the Eagles. The 32-year-old veteran wideout complained about his role on the team and was benched for his actions in the Week 9 win over Washington, but he was expected to return this weekend. That is now in doubt after Thursday's injury. Even if Tate's injury isn't serious enough to keep him out against Philly, we can't seriously recommend him in 12-team leagues and smaller. He's behind Darius Slayton, Sterling Shepard and even tight end Evan Engram in the target pecking order.
New York Giants WR Golden Tate (knee) suffered a knee injury of unknown severity late in practice Thursday, Nov. 12.
New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate (suspension) is likely to return to the fold for Sunday's game versus the Eagles after head coach Joe Judge said Monday that he "anticipates him being active." Tate was not included on the team's roster for Sunday's win over Washington following multiple incidents over the past week that the organization believed did not fit it's team-first ethos. With that being said, Tate's return to the mix should further cloud the outlook for Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard, both of whom will likely cede a target or two to Tate, should he be activated. Tate himself is a risky DFS or season-long option due to his tenuous relationship with the coaching staff, as well as the shaky QB play of Daniel Jones. Check back for the final word on his status, but fantasy managers can anticipate Tate suiting up again Sunday.
New York Giants WR Golden Tate (non-injury) has been declared inactive for the Week 9 game.
Fantasy Spin: Tate is sitting out because of a coach's decision, so fantasy players will need to monitor the situation. Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton will be the main receivers for Daniel Jones this week and should both be starting options in fantasy leagues.
The New York Giants have declared DT R.J. McIntosh, RB Devonta Freeman, OG Kenny Wiggins, TE Eric Tomlinson, WR Golden Tate, CB Brandon Z. Williams and OT Jackson Barton inactive for Week 9.
New York Giants WR Golden Tate's time with the team is 'almost certainly nearing an end,' opined one team beat reporter Saturday, Nov. 7. The Giants attempted to trade Tate last week, but found no market, according to a source, and he very likely will be released following the season.
Fantasy Spin: With only 22 catches for 226 yards and two TDs through Week 8 (he will miss Week 9 due to disciplinary reasons), Tate is on pace for his worst statistical season in the last nine years and appears headed for the free agent market entering his age-33 season.
New York Giants WR Golden Tate will not make the trip with the team Saturday, Nov. 7, to Washington and consequently will miss Sunday's game against the Washington Football Team, according to sources. The decision was made due to 'overall issues with (Tate's) effort and performance.' Tate 'has a chance' to return to the team's lineup in Week 10.
Fantasy Spin: Tate has caught TD passes in each of the last two games but only has been targeted a combined six times over the last three contests while taking a clear backseat in the team's target pecking order to fellow WRs Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton and TE Evan Engram. With this turn for the worse, Tate is certainly droppable outside of deep leagues.
New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate will not make the trip to Washington for Sunday's game, according to sources. The decision was made to keep him back due to overall issues with his effort and performance. Tate will have a chance to return to the lineup in Week 10 against the division-rival Eagles. The 32-year-old has not been happy with his role on the team behind pass-catchers Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and tight end Evan Engram. Tate recently liked some tweets that were critical of the Giants organization as well. He's mainly been a touchdown-dependent WR4/flex for fantasy managers anyway, so you can safely sit him if you have him rostered. His absence will mean more looks for Shepard, Slayton and Engram against Washington.
