Armon Binns inactive: Brandon Tate will receive fantasy boost vs. Steelers

Paul Frederiksen-US PRESSWIRE

Armon Binns is inactive for Sunday's game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers with an ankle injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Armon Binns is inactive for Sunday's game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers due to an ankle injury. Binns was listed as questionable heading into the game after missing practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning Friday.

With Binns out, Brandon Tate is expected to move up on the depth chart. A.J. Green and Andrew Hawkins could see a slight bump in targets, as well.

Fantasy Impact: Binns had a pair of consecutive 60-plus yard outings in Week 2 and 3, but has otherwise been a relative afterthought in the Bengals' offense. Green is easily the primary target at wideout, with Hawkins drawing the occasional deep ball.

Don't expect Tate to suddenly burst onto the scene. He has just five catches for 85 yards and a touchdown on the season. Three receptions and 71 yards came in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns.
