Golden Tate is winning at everything lately. Not only did he sign a nice new contract with the Detroit Lions, but his fantasy value has gone through the roof. While Russell Wilson is a very talented quarterback, Matthew Stafford will provide Tate with more touchdown and receiving yard opportunities.
Here are five reasons why you should draft Golden Tate in 2014.
Calvin Johnson can catch the ball even if he is triple covered, but Tate will find himself wide open on several occasions in his first year with the Lions.
The only competition Tate has is Johnson, and no one expects Tate to overthrow Megatron. Tate still has the opportunity to have a great season with the pass-happy Matthew Stafford.
Most of the players on the Seattle Seahawks had a little chip on their shoulder, and Tate was one of them. He will want to prove to everyone that he is worth his big new contract.
Now that Tate has seen what it takes to win a Super Bowl, he has matured and grown as a receiver. Quarterbacks look to these type of players in tough situations, which will help Tate big time for his fantasy production.
Russell Wilson averaged less than 210 passing yards a game in 2013. Matthew Stafford averaged 290 in 2013. Tate's receiving yards should sky rocket in the 2014 season.
