The New York Giants are going to have a lot of receiving targets to fill this season after trading Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns. But that's what happens when you trade away one of the best wide receivers in football.

The player most likely to scoop up the majority of Beckham's targets is newly signed wideout Golden Tate. OBJ is one of a kind, but Tate does one thing better than any other wide receiver in football.

Over the last three seasons, he has more yards after the catch than any other pass catcher, a list that includes Michael Thomas, Jarvis Landry, Antonio Brown and Julio Jones.

Watching Eli Manning play over the last few seasons, he's picked up the West Coach offense well, throwing short, quick passes early and often. And the Giants now have arguably the perfect player to be on the receiving end of those passes, since no wideout in football can make players miss like Tate.

In fact, nobody is even close.

All Manning has to do is hit his new slot receiver, and let him do the rest. There are 124 looks left behind from Beckham, and Tate is the kind of player that should fit seamlessly into the Giants offense in the 2019 season.

The kind of offense New York runs, along with the amount of opportunities Tate will likely get puts him in position to be a WR2 in fantasy football this coming season. We no Tate is no Beckham, but he should be worth a mid-round pick in PPR leagues in 2019.
