Tate played in 11 games in 2019, his 1st season with the Giants. He missed the first 4 on suspension and Week 13 with a concussion.
But he ended up leading Giants WRs in PPR points per game, ranking 27th among all WRs and 1 spot ahead of teammate Sterling Shepard. Tate averaged 7.7 targets, 4.5 catches, 61.5 yards and 0.5 TDs per game. And he was a relatively steady producer, scoring as a top 36 PPR WR in 9 of his 11 games. That included 5 top-20 finishes.
It’s worth noting that Tate benefited from Saquon Barkley, Evan Engram, Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton all missing time with injuries. In fact, there wasn’t a single game last year when all 5 of New York’s top weapons were on the field. Tate, Shepard and Slayton played just 6 games together. Here were their numbers in those contests:
Golden Tate: 41 targets, 19 catches, 272 yards, 3 TDs
Sterling Shepard: 52 targets, 34 catches, 318 yards, 1 TD
Darius Slayton: 34 targets, 30 catches, 364 yards, 4 TDs
It’s a bit worrisome that Tate ranked 2nd in targets, 3rd in catches and 3rd in yards. On the plus side, Tate led the group in yards per route run. He ranked 2nd to Slayton in yards per target and 2nd to Shepard in Pro Football Focus’ receiving grades.
So this WR corps is a bit of a guessing game heading into 2020 — especially when you consider that Barkley and Engram are also back to command targets. Plus, QB Daniel Jones remains a question mark after making 12 uneven starts as a rookie las…
