Lions WR Golden Tate, who injured his shoulder Sunday, is expected to miss time, source says.

Related players: Kenny Golladay

Fantasy Impact:

Tate is waiting for the results of the MRI, but Rapoport said it would likely be "a few weeks." Golladay could stand to benefit the most from Tate missing time, but is still recovering from a hamstring injury. The Lions are on a bye in Week 7.

Scouting Report

Week 6 at New Orleans Saints

With Matthew Stafford throwing 35 times last Sunday versus Carolina, Golden Tate was targeted 8 times. He hauled in 5 passes for 48 yards; however, it was the fourth straight game he’d been held to less than 60 yards. Tate is averaging 5 grabs per game, but has scored only once in 2017. On the road at New Orleans could be a shootout, so, despite the disappointing outings the past month, Tate should be used as a WR3/flex play, even if Stafford is unable to go.
