Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 16: Golden Tate

The Lions receiver is coming off a solid game. Is he worth the start in Week 16?

Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate is having his best season in his first year with his new team. Through all 14 games played, Tate has hauled in 91 passes for 1,224 yards and four touchdowns, hitting the 100-yard receiving mark fives times, all of which were career highs except for the scores. His biggest games came in the middle of the season when Calvin Johnson was sidelined with an injury. Since then, Tate has slowed down the pace. He finished last week with a 7/38/1 line which was the first time he scored since Week 8.

Fantasy Impact: Tate has a much easier matchup this week in the Chicago Bears. Their defense gives up the 10th-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. With Johnson healthy and not having to deal with any tough matchup, owners should expect a decrease in targets for Tate from last week’s seven. Tate remains a solid WR3 play.
