Golden Tate Fantasy Football News 2020

The Giants will hire Joe Judge as their next HC, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's an out-of-nowhere move. Judge spent the past 8 seasons in New England -- the first 7 as a special teams coach and 2019 as the WRs coach. Prior to that, he worked under Nick Saban at Alabama. At just 38 years old, he's now the league's 2nd-youngest HC. Frankly, that's about all we know about Judge at this point. We'll see who he tabs as his OC.

The Giants will fire HC Pat Shurmur, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Shurmur compiled a 9-23 record in 2 seasons at the helm in New York. We'll see who the G-Men tab as their next HC. They have an excellent core on offense with QB Daniel Jones, RB Saquon Barkley, WRs Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate and Darius Slayton and TE Evan Engram.

Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) put in a full week of practice and will play against the Eagles on Monday night. He's averaged 8.1 targets, 5.1 catches and 64 yards per game this season -- although that's all come with QB Daniel Jones.

Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) put in a full practice on Thursday. He's on track to return for Monday night's game against the Eagles. Tate has averaged 8.1 targets, 5.1 catches and 64 yards per game this season -- although that's all come with QB Daniel Jones.

Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the Packers. He leaves behind 8.1 targets per game. With TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) also out, there's a lot of volume to go around for WR Sterling Shepard, WR, Darius Slayton, RB Saquon Barkley and TE Kaden Smith.

Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) didn't practice on Wednesday. That's not a good start in his quest to get cleared in time for this weekend's game against the Packers. Fantasy owners should be making other plans at this point.

The Giants announced Monday that WR Golden Tate is in the concussion protocol. He sustained the head injury on his 4th-quarter TD in yesterday's loss to the Bears. We'll track Tate's progress through the protocol, but fantasy owners should plan on being without him in Week 13 for now.

Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. He's looking like a long shot to play against the Bears this weekend. TE Rhett Ellison (concussion) isn't expected to play, either, leaving Kaden Smith as New York's lead TE. He's not a fantasy option. The TE injuries should push more targets to the WRs and RB Saquon Barkley.

As expected, WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets. He visited a concussion specialist in Pittsburgh this week and is reportedly a candidate for IR. Shepard's absence again leaves Golden Tate and rookie Darius Slayton as New York's top 2 WRs this weekend.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard has re-entered the concussion protocol and won't play against the Cowboys on Monday night. Get him out of Week 9 fantasy lineups and upgrade WRs Golden Tate and Darius Slayton.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) put in a full practice on Thursday. He still needs final medical clearance, according to The Athletic's Dan Duggan, but Shepard is on track to return for Monday night's game against the Cowboys. He averaged 8.5 targets over the first 4 games of the season, although 3 of those came without WR Golden Tate. Consider both Shepard and Tate WR3s for Week 9.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions. There's still no timetable for return from his 2nd concussion of the season, although he's been putting in limited practices the past 2 weeks. Golden Tate and Darius Slayton will continue to serve as New York's top 2 WRs on Sunday.

HC Pat Shurmur said Thursday that there's a "strong possibility" that WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) isn't cleared for this weekend's game against the Lions. He's been limited in practice the past 2 weeks, so he's made some progress through the protocol. According to ESPN's Jordan Raanan, the Giants "hope" to get Shepard back for Week 9. Golden Tate, Darius Slayton and Cody Latimer will again operate the New York's top 3 WRs this Sunday.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan hears that Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) won't play against the Cardinals on Sunday and is "uncertain" for Week 8. It's not a surprise after Shepard suffered a pair of concussions in a 1-month span. Golden Tate, Darius Slayton and Cody Latimer will again operate as New York's top 3 WRs on Sunday.

The forecast for Thursday night's game between the Giants and Patriots calls for rain and wind gusts of 30+ mph. That's enough to impact the passing and kicking games. Hopefully you're not relying on anything in New York's passing game. We nudged QB Tom Brady and WRs Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon down the Week 6 Rankings -- but they all still sit safely inside starter territory in this pristine matchup. Try to avoid both Ks in this game.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) is out for Thursday night's game against the Patriots. He might be looking at an extended absence after sustaining 2 concussions in the span of a month. It'll be Golden Tate, Darius Slayton and Cody Latimer as New York's top 3 WRs tomorrow. QB Daniel Jones has no shot.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard is in the concussion protocol. The Athletic's Dan Duggan reports that Shepard displayed concussion symptoms to the team's medical staff Monday morning. This is Shepard's 2nd concussion of the season and almost certainly knocks him out for at least Thursday night's game against the Patriots. Shepard's absence could mean a target boost for Golden Tate. He'll join Darius Slayton and Cody Latimer as the team's top 3 wideouts for at least Week 6. Plan as though you'll miss Shepard for Week 7 as well, given the 2 concussions in such close proximity.

The Giants announced Sunday that WR Golden Tate is in the concussion protocol. We'll see how long he takes to return, but the 4-game PED suspension at the beginning of the season means it doesn't really matter. We don't know of any previous concussions in Tate's NFL career.

Giants WR Golden Tate has been suspended 4 games for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances. Per Tate, the substance that triggered the positive test came from fertility medication. He’ll appeal the ruling on August 6. Tate can still practice and play in preseason games, and that time will be essential as he adjusts to a new offense. But his loss would further cripple an already thin Giants WR corps following the losses of Sterling Shepard and Corey Coleman. Next up on the depth chart: Cody Latimer, Russell Shepard, Bennie Fowler and rookie Darius Slayton. Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram will be busy.
