Lions Beat: WR Golden Tate will lead the team in catches

Detroit Lions - [Full Article]

Lions.com writer Tim Twentyman was asked via Twitter who will lead the team in catches. His response:

There’s history and chemistry between Matthew Stafford and Golden Tate. He led the team in receptions each of the last two seasons with 99 and 90, respectively.

I think it will be hard for Theo Riddick to reach 80 catches again this season. Teams will scheme hard against him.

I expect Eric Ebron’s stats to take another significant increase in year three, but the 90-catch range is probably a bit high for him.

In the end, I expect Tate and Marvin Jones to be right there, with Tate edging Jones out.

Fantasy Impact:

Jones had a career-high 65 catches in 2015, so it's tough to see him pushing Tate, who has back-to-back seasons with 90-plus catches. Tate looks like a great value, especially in PPR formats.
