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.

Giants WR Golden Tate (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Bears. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said this morning that Tate “should be at full strength” — although the fact that he remained limited in practice all week has us shying away from using Tate in fantasy lineups today.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Giants WR Golden Tate (hamstring) is expected to play against the Bears today. He was limited in practice all week but "should be at full strength," Rapoport adds. That has us feeling a bit better about Tate's Week 2 prospects, although you should still treat him as just a WR4.

Giants WR Golden Tate (hamstring) remained limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bears. It sounds like he has a good chance to be active for that one, but try to avoid him in fantasy lineups until he’s back to 100%.

Giants WR Golden Tate (hamstring) remained limited at Thursday's practice. We'll see if he gets back to full participation Friday. Tate spent all last week limited and then missed the Pittsburgh loss, so he'd be tough to trust coming off another week of just limited workouts.

The Giants held just a walkthrough practice Wednesday, 2 days after losing to the Steelers at home to open their season. They still listed WR Golden Tate as a limited participant with his hamstring injury. Tate put in limited practices all last week as well before missing the opener. We'll see about his status for Sunday's trip to Chicago.
