There is quiet buzz about Seahawks WR Golden Tate in the coaching and front office, with every belief that he is ready to make a leap into the upper echelon of receivers here and not just a guy who flashes remarkable skills but then fades in and out of games.
HC Pete Carroll said the Seahawks have Tate in pretty much every package they run, and will use him not just deep but in the shallow, tempo passing game, across the middle.
"We're using him in everything," the coach said.
The comments about Tate come as the majority of the article is about the team waiting to find out the fate Percy Harvin. Harvin will miss time even with the best news and as a result Tate has a real chance to emerge as a dependable WR for the Seahawks, and perhaps even a serviceable one on your fantasy team. Right now he's ranked 70th and likely won't get drafted in standard leagues, but keep an eye on his stock with any news about Harvin.
