According to Adam Schefter, the Giants have activated wide receiver Golden Tate and released wide receivers Bennie Fowler and T.J. Jones. While the dumping of these wideouts, especially Fowler, surprised many, there's no doubt that the Giants got better with Tate now on the active roster. Tate was suspended for the first four games of the 2019 season for violating the league's performance enhancing substances policy. The former Pro Bowl wideout appealed the suspension, but the NFL refused to budge.
The story feels the addition of Tate will only help Jones and his development. Tate has been known as a home run hitter in the past but is also efficient on short routes, something Jones was very good at against the Redskins this past week.
DET WR T.J. Jones - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 9 at Green Bay Packers
Golden Tate surprised many by playing last week versus Pittsburgh. However, even with his presence, Matthew Stafford came T.J. Jones’ way 8 times, resulting in 4 catches for 88 yards—both season-highs. The Lions were held to 71 rushing yards, so Stafford aired it out 45 times, trying to bring his team back. As rookie Kenny Golladay continues to recover from a sore hamstring, Jones will be Detroit’s No. 3 WR. However, even though he posted good numbers last week, it’s a stretch for him to be in your starting lineup versus the Packers.
