Tate could push for starting job in Seattle

The Seattle Seahawks currently have an aging T.J. Houshmandzadeh and an injury-prone Deion Branch as their starting wide receivers.

That’s good news for the fantasy value of Golden Tate, who could push the latter for a starting role at some point in his rookie season. Considering Branch hasn’t played a full season since 2005, there’s a good chance that Tate will see his share of opportunities for coach Pete Carroll.

The former Golden Domer is a real playmaker with the ability to stretch defenses, so his long-term potential is apparent. For 2010, Tate will be worth a late-round flier in seasonal leagues.
