Houston Texans RB Ben Tate (hamstring) has been officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. This will be the third straight game he misses, as his lingering hamstring injury refuses to heal. Tate is still not practicing and remains week-to-week.
Fantasy Impact: Is Tate actually a buy-low candidate in fantasy? Well, not this week, but it's not impossible. Once the Texans clinch a playoff spot, they could start putting the brakes on Foster's monster workload and give more looks to Tate and Forsett down the stretch.
Tate has been a huge disappointment this season, but he has a shot to salvage some fantasy value if the scenario above plays out. It's a situation worth keeping an eye on.
