Ben Tate injury update: Fantasy value gone with 'out' status

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

Ben Tate injured his hamstring against the Baltimore Ravens and will not be able to suit up on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills.

Houston Texans running back Ben Tate is officially listed as out on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. Tate has been dealing with a hamstring injury and missed practice all week.

Tate hasn't played since suffering the injury against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7. The team's bye week didn't do him a whole lot of good, as Tate will not suit up on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Ben Tate's fantasy value is directly tied to the health of Arian Foster as it is. But with the injury, it becomes even more difficult for him to work his way back onto the field.

Foster has been a monster this season. Tate's only hope at relevancy is if the Texans realize they need to ease off Foster down the stretch to save him for the postseason.
