New York Giants sign WR Golden Tate: Grade, reaction and more

New York Giants sign WR Golden Tate: Grade, reaction and more

Although his short stint in Philadelphia was a disappointment, Tate has routinely been one of fantasy's most dependable wide receivers, and especially so in contrast to a typically much lower ADP. But instead of wearing the Philadelphia Eagles' midnight green, he'll be wearing the blue of the New York Giants.

In five of the past six seasons, among all wide receivers with at least 50 targets, Tate has ranked top-four in yards after contact per reception.

To me, the "Golden Tate"-era already feels like a weird fever dream of a team desperately attempting to return to the postseason despite having a deeply flawed roster". It's unclear if those moves take them out of the running for Tate.

While the Patriots would seem like the more logical destination for a veteran wide receiver like Tate, the Steelers have kept themselves in play for the 30 year old.

The Niners were rumored to be in the mix for Beckham before the Giants shipped him to the Cleveland Browns for safety Jabrill Peppers, the 17th overall selection, and a third-round pick.

No, the Giants look like they will be a really, really bad team again in 2019 and will continue to struggle to even sniff at the postseason until they can settle on a young, high upside corp to build around.

Simply put, the only real victor in this deal is the Philadelphia Eagles. I don't want to go to somewhere that's trying to rebuild.... The plan has yet to be revealed, but on Thursday, the Giants did manage to sign one of the best remaining free agents who also happens to play receiver.
