2018 FANTASY FOOTBALL TRADE FALLOUT: GOLDEN TATE HEADS TO PHILLY TO MAKE CARSON WENTZ A RICH MAN

Some big names were on the move Tuesday leading up to the NFL's trading deadline at 4:00 ET and prominent among them was the Detroit Lions sending longtime slot wideout Golden Tate to the Philadelphia Eagles for a third round pick.  The move is a clear "win now" one for the Eagles who have been languishing a bit so far as they try to defend the Super Bowl championship they won a year ago but the bottom line here is that QB Carson Wentz now has a ridiculous array of receivers that should have him right there as the most productive passer in fantasy football the rest of the way.  Already coming off a three-TD game last Sunday in London, Wentz now has Tate joining Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor, and Zach Ertz to give him arguably the best set of weapons in the game.  As far as Tate is concerned, he has been a bit quiet over the last month but is about as durable and consistent as it gets with his customary 90-plus reception, 1000-plus yard receiving, and around 5 touchdown yearly numbers.  He will face some more competition for catches in Philly given all the names surrounding him that we just mentioned but he will remain in the WR 2 range.  Meanwhile, Tate's arrival likely puts Agholor in the WR 4 bench/waiver wire realm as this move will hurt him the most.  On the other side, Kenny Golladay will take on more targets from QB Matthew Stafford, as will veteran Marvin Jones.  All in all though, it was a terrific move for almost all involved.
