Fantasy Analysis | 1411068440
Time to start Golden Tate in Week 3
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

I'm excited about this game because there should be a lot of Fantasy points between all the main receivers on both teams, including Golden Tate.

He would clearly be fourth if you're ranking them with Calvin Johnson, Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, but Tate makes for a top-15 Fantasy option in this matchup.

The Packers have given up two touchdowns to opposing receivers with Ricardo Lockette in Week 1 and Eric Decker last week, and they should have allowed a third touchdown to Jeremy Kerley on the Jets non-timeout call.

Tate is second on the Lions in targets behind Johnson (24) with 14 and once upon a time he had a big catch against the Packers when he played with the Seahawks in the Fail Mary game in 2012.

That was actually his second touchdown in the game and we'd love a repeat performance this week.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.
