Ben Tate injury update: Fantasy handcuff role may have been supplanted by Justin Forsett

Andy Lyons

Ben Tate is probable for Week 14 against the Patriots. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans RB Ben Tate is officially probable for Monday Night Football against the New England Patriots. Tate has been hobbled by injuries all season, but he got a full week of practice in and should be good to go.

Tate has just 196 yards for two TDs on 4.3 YPC.

Fantasy Impact: Tate was the presumed handcuff to Arian Foster going into the season, but Justin Forsett has had some strong performances himself, and this will complicate the backup situation as the Texans try to cool Foster's wheels heading into the playoffs.

Keeper/Dynasty owners should still covet Tate, as he's shown impressive talent when healthy, but this year is a wash. Re-draft owners shouldn't bother with him in the fantasy playoffs.
