Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate will start at split end in the team's game on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, according to Liz Mathews. Tate suffered a knee injury in the team's final preseason game and missed the season-opening loss against the Arizona Cardinals. Quarterback Russell Wilson didn't have a stellar debut, but multiple drops of the wide receivers definitely hurt. Tate will be a much needed boost to this wide receiver group. Sidney Rice has been limited in practice this week, but Pete Carrol is also confident that he will play on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: In the short-term, Golden Tate doesn't have a ton of fantasy value because he goes up against a tough Dallas secondary on Sunday. He's a player to keep an eye on, though, because Wilson seemed comfortable throwing the ball his way during the preseason.
