Giants' Golden Tate loses appeal, will sit four games
New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate lost the appeal of his four-game suspension and will miss the first four weeks of the regular season.
Tate was appealing the ruling for a banned substance that he took for fertility reasons but as expected was denied. He will be eligible to return to the Giants on September 30 and be able to play in the Week 5 contest versus the Minnesota Vikings. Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram will see a bump in targets to begin the season with Tate out.
With only 12 games played, numberFire projects Tate as the WR66 in fantasy with 51.1 catchers, 555.0 yards, and 3.4 touchdowns in 2019.
