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, 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 Theo Riddick inactive     -- Sun Dec 11 11:30 am --

Wrist injury
Theo Riddick is INACTIVE for the Lions. A lot of Washington and Zenner (Dave Birkett on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Riddick was battling a wrist injury this week. Expect Zach Zenner and DeAndre Washington to handle the rushing load for the Lions. WR Golden Tate also gets a boost against the Bears.
Injury Not looking good for Marvin Jones     -- Sun Dec 4 8:15 am --

Expected to sit with thigh injury
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)

FF Today'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.
