New York Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) did not practice Sunday, Aug. 18, after being diagnosed with a concussion.
Huddle Up: Tate is facing a suspension to start the year, but the shifty slot receiver will have WR3 upside in PPR formats when he returns. If the looming suspension causes him to slip in drafts, consider scooping him up.

New York Giants WR Golden Tate is appealing a four-game suspension for violating the National Football League's performance-enhancing substance policy because he believes he has a legitimate case, according to multiple league sources.
Huddle Up: It is uncertain how long it will take for this matter to be resolved but Tate will be able to continue participating in team activities while it is being appealed. He is expected to be the Giants' No. 2 receiver behind Sterling Shepard and could see even more targets than previously anticipated due to the torn ACL sustained by fellow wideout Corey Coleman earlier this week. Tate is capable of producing like a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3, although there is some level of risk in drafting him now based on the current situation.

New York Giants WR Golden Tate could be used as a kick and punt returner this season.
Huddle Up: Tate, along with fellow wideouts Corey Coleman and Darius Slayton, as well as SS Jabrill Peppers, are under consideration for return duties in 2019. Regardless of who wins this competition, Tate will have a modest amount of fantasy value as the club's likely No. 2 receiver behind Sterling Shepard. He is worthy of consideration as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 option.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard averaged 7.7 targets in four games without Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. last year compared to 6.1 targets in 12 games with Beckham, and Jordan Raanan of ESPNNewYork.com believes Shepard will the the No. 1 option in the passing attack ahead of WR Golden Tate in 2019.
Huddle Up: Given his familiarity with Eli Manning, it would make sense that Shepard would be the go-to option this season. There are questions about how much Manning has left in the tank, but Shepard should have a good shot at WR3 production.

Free-agent WR Golden Tate (Eagles) signed a four-year, $37.5 million deal with the New York Giants Thursday, March 14, according to a source. The deal includes $23 million fully guaranteed.
Huddle Up: This is a big move by the Giants in the wake of the Odell Beckham trade. Tate cannot replace Beckham, but he's a quality starter who will play a significant role. As such, his ceiling is in the low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 range.

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent WR Golden Tate is expected to ask for $10 million to $14 million per season in his next contract, according to league sources.
Huddle Up: Tate should receive interest from multiple teams this offseason since he has been a solid receiver over the last several seasons. He can be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver in 2019 depending on the team he signs with in free agency.

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent WR Golden Tate said he would love to be signed by the New England Patriots in free agency. Turning 31 years old this offseason, Tate is focused on winning. It has already been reported, though, New England may not want to sign Tate if his asking price is too high.
Huddle Up: Tate left something to be desired with the Eagles, but he still has a role to play in the NFL. Depending on where he lands, he has WR2 upside in PPR leagues, although it's best to draft him as a WR3.

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent WR Golden Tate and Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Jamison Crowder are options to fill the need the Green Bay Packers have at slot receiver, according to Bill Barnwell of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: The Packers need a dependable option to support Davante Adams, and both Tate and Crowder would quickly become potential WR3 options if Aaron Rodgers is throwing them the ball.

The New Orleans Saints could try to sign a free-agent wide receiver to play the slot next season, in the opinion of ESPN's Mike Triplett, who names Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb, Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley, Philadelphia Eagles WR Golden Tate and Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries as possible targets in free agency.
Huddle Up: Of that group, Humphries might be the most interesting as both Tate and Beasley have reached their 30s and Cobb has taken a pounding over his eight NFL campaigns. Still, anyone signed into the New Orleans passing game would warrant your attention.
