Tate secured six of nine targets for 102 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' 35-14 loss to the Patriots on Thursday.
With Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Evan Engram (knee) both inactive and Saquon Barkley (ankle) also remaining sidelined, Tate was easily the most reliable target for rookie quarterback Daniel Jones. He locked in a strong fantasy night early with a nifty 64-yard touchdown reception at the 6:05 mark of the second quarter, a play where Tate kept his concentration after initially bobbling the ball and raced down the right sideline into the end zone after securing it. The veteran pass-catcher displayed some solid chemistry with Jones, which was one of the few encouraging aspects of the Giants' three-touchdown loss. Tate will look to build on what was his first 100-yard tally since Week 4 of the 2018 season when he faces the Cardinals in Week 7.
Tate caught three of six targets for 13 yards Sunday against the Vikings.
The Giants didn't sustain many drives and passed for only 182 yards in the game, so better days should be ahead, only not just ahead as Tate has another tough matchup against the Patriots in Week 6.
The Giants activated Tate (suspension) to the 53-man roster Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.
After completing his four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, Tate had the ban lifted Monday, but the Giants' had a week-long roster exemption to make a decision on when to add him to the 53-man. With that call made, he'll be back in action Sunday against the Vikings, likely as the No. 3 pass catcher for rookie QB Daniel Jones behind top wideout Sterling Shepard and tight end Evan Engram with Saquon Barkley (ankle) on the pine.
Tate has completed his four-game suspension and is eligible to return to action for the Giants in Week 5.
Per Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York, the Giants have a week-long roster exemption for Tate, but he's slated to be activated in advance of Sunday's game against the Vikings. With that in mind, coach Pat Shurmur noted that Tate, who was at the team's facility Monday, "should be fresh and ready to go" this weekend.
Tate (concussion, suspension) caught both of his targets for 37 yards in Thursday's preseason finale against the Patriots.
We won't see Tate until Week 5 due to a suspension, but his ability to suit up here shows that the former Lions wideout is over the concussion he had been dealing with earlier this month. Tate's penchant for making plays after the catch could make him worth stashing for the first few weeks, as he's expected to feature prominently in the Giants' offense upon making his return.
Tate (concussion, suspension) has shed his non-contact jersey and is working with the first team at Monday's practice, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
Tate is suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, but he'll be able to practice through the preseason. After he serves his suspension, he'll be permitted to return to the team's active roster Sept. 30. By then, Tate should be well past his concussion issue and able to slide into a key role in the Giants offense Week 5.
Tate (suspension) is in the NFL's concussion protocol, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Tate won't be able to practice until he clears the necessary medical hurdles to do so. In any case, he's suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
With Tate's appeal having been denied, per Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record, the wideout will be suspended without pay for the first four games of the regular season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Tate, who can participate in all of the Giants' preseason practices and games, will be permitted to return to the team's active roster Sept. 30, making him eligible to play in Week 5 versus the Vikings. In his early season absence, the likes of Cody Latimer, Bennie Fowler, Russell Shepard and Darius Slayton will have added opportunities to contribute behind top wideout Sterling Shepard (thumb).
Tate isn't expected to win the appeal of his four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
The NFL handed down the ban Saturday, and Tate immediately retorted with the appeal. As mentioned by Vacchiano, the policy is "unforgiving" and "rigid," but the best outcome Tate can hope for is a reduction from four games to three or maybe two. Assuming any sort of suspension is upheld, the Giants could be down their top two receivers at the start of the campaign, with Sterling Shepard recovering from a broken thumb. After Shepard and Tate, the most likely candidates for targets are Cody Latimer, Darius Slayton (hamstring), Benny Fowler and Russell Shepard.
Tate, who is expected to place an appeal, will be suspended four games for violating the NFL's Performance Enhancing Substance policy, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Schefter did mention Tate appears to have a legitimate case for appeal, but this certainly isn't good news for a Giants receiving corps that lost Corey Coleman to a season-ending ACL tear Thursday and also saw top wideout Sterling Shepard break his finger in the same practice. While Shepard is expected to be ready for Week 1, the same cannot be said for the Giants' big-ticket offseason addition, as Tate figures to miss at least some time even if an appeal were to come to fruition. He'll still be able to practice and play throughout the preseason, but as of now, Cody Latimer and Darius Slayton (hamstring) will man the top of the team's depth chart come the regular season. The Giants were sniffing around veteran options even prior to Tate's reported suspension, so it wouldn't be a surprise if the team does add more competition at the position in the coming days.
The Giants signed Tate on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Among the wideouts still available, Tate likely was the most coveted. He'll land in a situation in which he immediately becomes a key option, in tandem with Sterling Shepard, though being on the receiving end of passes from Eli Manning could be detrimental to Tate's fantasy value. The presence of do-it-all back Saquon Barkley also may eat into the 30-year-old's target potential. Tate will be attempting to bounce back from a disappointing 2018 -- for his standard -- which included 74 catches (on 113 targets) for 795 yards and four touchdowns in 15 games between the Lions and Eagles.
Tate (knee) played 24 of the Eagles' 51 offensive snaps and recorded two receptions for 18 yards on five targets Sunday in a 20-14 loss to the Saints in the divisional round.
Tate nabbed the game-winning touchdown reception a week earlier in the Eagles' wild-card upset of the Bears, but that was one of the only highlights of his tenure in Philadelphia. One of the more high-profile names moved prior to the Oct. 30 trade deadline, Tate failed to make a consistent impact in his 10 games with the Eagles, totaling 37 receptions for 342 yards and two scores on 57 targets. The 30-year-old will become a free agent in March and is likely to take his talents elsewhere.
Tate (knee) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's divisional-round contest in New Orleans.
Tate followed up back-to-back limited showings Wednesday and Thursday with an uncapped session to wrap up the week. With his knee issue behind him, he can focus on a Saints defense that conceded 20 touchdowns to wideouts this season.
Tate (knee) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday.
Tate has opened the week with back-to-back capped sessions, but his knee issue doesn't appear to be one that'll impact his gameday availability Sunday in New Orleans, where he'll be seeking out his third touchdown as a member of the Eagles.
Tate was a limited participant at Wednesday's walk-through due to a knee injury.
Tate has been a paragon of health during his nine-year career, missing a combined seven games, five of them during his rookie season in 2010. There's little worry about his availability for Sunday's divisional-round contest at New Orleans, where he'll be looking to put a stamp on a second consecutive postseason game.
Tate caught five of eight targets for 46 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 16-15 wild-card-round win over Chicago.
Just like that, the Eagles' trade-deadline acquisition of Tate from the Lions was justified. Tate was quiet for most of this one but came up big when it mattered most, catching the game-winning touchdown from two yards out on fourth down with 56 seconds left. Up next for Tate and the Eagles is a road matchup with the Saints.
Tate reeled in two of his three targets for 13 yards during Sunday's 32-30 win against the Texans.
Aside from earning between 60 and 71 percent of the snaps on offense Weeks 11 and 12, Tate hasn't received more than 50 percent in any of his five other appearances with the Eagles. His production has responded in kind, with Sunday's target count matching his low in Philadelphia. The impending return of Mike Wallace from injured reserve could further hurt Tate's workload, or at least what's left of it, anyway.
Tate caught all five passes thrown his way for 43 yards in Sunday night's 30-23 win over the Rams.
It was a nice rebound for Tate after just one catch in his previous game, but still probably not what his fantasy owners were hoping for in a playoff week. He saw just 22 snaps, barely a third of Nelson Agholor's total. Considering the workload, the 30-year-old will be a risky play Week 16, but it could pay off against the Texans' 26th-ranked pass defense (258.3 yards per game).
Tate caught one of three targets for seven yards in Sunday's 29-23 loss to the Cowboys.
Taking Tate away seemed to be part of Dallas' game plan, as there was a Cowboy draped over him almost every single time he ran a route. However, he also saw 16 fewer snaps than in any of his previous three contests and saw just one target prior to the fourth quarter. Nelson Agholor, who initially enjoyed just a slight edge in playing time in the first weeks after Tate was acquired, has now out-snapped the 30-year-old by 29 in each of the last two games. Fantasy owners will have to hope Tate sees the field more Week 15 on the road against the Rams.
Tate caught all seven of his targets for 85 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 28-13 win over the Redskins. He also hauled in a successful two-point conversion.
Tate got off to a hot start, going for a 19-yard gain and gathering a six-yard touchdown on Philadelphia's first offensive drive. He later ripped off a 32-yard reception, his longest play since joining the Eagles, and secured a two-point conversion to begin the fourth quarter. In doing so, Tate not only caught everything thrown his way, but enjoyed his best game with his new team. That gives him encouraging momentum ahead of Week 14's meeting with the Cowboys.
