Tate will continue his role as the Seahawks' No. 1 wide receiver with Percy Harvin likely out for the rest of the regular season. It's the role he's played all year long, however, he plays it more like a mid-level possession receiver than that of a play-making No. 1.
Tate has just one 100-yard game this season and over his last two, he has just five catches for 71 yards with no touchdowns. Things don't figure to get any easier for him this week against the 49ers' sixth-ranked pass defense that allows just 206 yards per game.
