Justin Forsett, Ben Tate probable for Week 17: Fantasy Implications

Bob Levey

Houston Texans RBs Justin Forsett and Ben Tate are probable for Week 17. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans running backs Justin Forsett and Ben Tate are officially listed as probable for Sunday's game. Both tailbacks were full participants in practice on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Forsett (knee) and Tate (hamstring) should be expected to go this Sunday. In Week 17, the Texans will take on the Colts in a must-win game.

Fantasy Analysis: Both of these players are non-factors in fantasy football. Tate had some value as a handcuff to Arian Foster in 2011, however, that is now a thing of the past.

Foster is the team's feature back and has gotten an astronomical amount of carries this season. With Foster leading the pack, there is no room for Forsett and Tate to earn their keep.
