Had 6+ receptions the last five weeks of the season.
More than 90+ receptions and 120+ targets all three seasons as a Detroit Lion.
Tate offers a nice floor in PPR formats, averaging 93/1073/5 per season during his tenure with the Lions.
Marvin Jones (ADP WR54/Overall 134)
Finished 3rd behind Julio Jones and Desean Jackson in yards per reception for WRs with 50+ receptions.
Career high in receiving yards (930) in 2016.
From Week 7 on, Jones posted a rough stat line of 26/401/0.
With Jones healthy heading into the season, he makes for a high upside flier in a pass happy Detroit offense with his current ADP in 12th round.
Kenny Golladay (ADP WR52/Overall 133)
At 6-4, 218 Golladay caught the eye of many fantasy owners, finding the end zone twice in his NFL debut.
The Lions did not bring back Anquan Boldin this offseason, so his 67 receptions, 95 targets and 8 TDs worth of production could use a replacement. With Golladay’s combincation of size and hands, he could make for a sneaky late round flier in deeper leagues.
Although, it is a bit of a stretch for him to be selected before Marvin Jones like he currently is.
Eric Ebron (ADP TE18/Overall 134)
Despite finishing as the TE14, he finished 8th at his position in receiving yards (711) and 10th in receptions (61).
In addition, he posted those numbers while on playing 13 games last year.
Admitedly, Ebron has disappointed in the NFL, but he is a TE that is going very late in drafts that is not all that much of a stretch to finding himself into the top 10 at his position.
