With the emergence of Wilson in SEA, a high powered running game, and great defense does anyone expect Tate to move past his 698 yd 7 TDs performance from last year into a WR 1 or WR 2 category?

He was only 5 points away from S Rice in total fantasy production in standard leagues, 11 if you don't count the hail mary against GB...LOL

In all earnestness, it is clear Wilson likes him in the red zone; or anywhere else on the field for that matter...

Next year will be his 4th year. Was this the 3rd "come out" year for Mr. Tate?

I hope he is hyped and perceived as someone you want to draft.

I think the bigger question is "What do SEA want to do with their offense next year?"

He avgd: 4.5 looks, 3 recs, 46yds & 0.45 TDs per game during regular season.

If SEA keep the current offense going & teams try to bottle the run (like ATL did for example), then hell improve on those #'s. If they dont? Hell be hit and miss all season. Again.

No knock on him. It's smart by SEA to make teams try to beat them, rather than the other way around.

If you want to know what you're getting in Seattle, look at their offense after the bye. That's when they actually started doing the things they wanted to be doing.

It's a bit skewed because there were a few games where they got huge defensive contributions, and that's going to reduce the amount you throw, but while Tate put up some good numbers, he's super unreliable. One week he'll have 5 for 100 yds, the next week 2 for 6.

Dynasty stash? Maybe. I can think of worse guys to roster. But I'm not going to go out of my way to get him.

Ideally that offense won't play with kid gloves to start the year like they did last year. It's an improving division aside from Arizona perhaps the lone patsy depending on what they do this offseason. That is kind of the ideal matchup for Tate though (vs a strong running defense and a lopsided cornerback situation-assuming other team's #1 cb covers Rice in Patrick Peterson). Strong matchup play type of guy in those situations.

I would definately consider Tate later in the draft if Seattle doesn't pick up another solid piece to play on the outside. They will still hope to be a running team next year, but would have to imagine trying to take some of the pressure and pounding Beastmode has to deal with. Tate definately seemed to do well when things broke down and Wilson had to scramble as well, unsure of how you'd predict that well though. Definately need to revisit this thread after the draft and free agency are finished.

I believe his numbers will go up very nicely. A nice later round guy who will out perform his draft number certainly. I grab guys like this every year and every year it never fails me.

I'm sure they will draft a WR and probably pick up one of the big name guys (Bowe, Wallace, etc.) making Tate's value small(er).

THIS.

He's basically Seattle's version of James Jones.


Decent talent, but too prone to "days off", drops and mishaps to be anything higher than a WR3.

A WR3 is a VERY important roster spot on a fantasy football team.

What does Rice's contract situation look like? How about Baldwin? I think the situations of those 2 guys dictates a lot of what Seattle will do at the WR position in the off-season.

both are locked up for next year.
Baldwins:
7/28/2011: Signed a three-year, $1.413 million contract. The deal included a $17,500 signing bonus. 2013: $555,000, 2014: Restricted Free Agent
Rice:
7/29/2011: Signed a five-year, $41 million contract. The deal contains $18.5 million guaranteed, including a $6 million signing bonus and all of Rice's 2011 and 2012 base salaries. Another $3 million is available through escalators related to Pro Bowl appearances. 2013-2014: $8.5 million, 2015: $9 million, 2016: Free Agent
Tate is in a contract year though it seems

I don't think Seattle will be spending big at the WR position this off-season to be honest.
