Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys. Tate has been dealing with a knee injury he suffered in Seattle's final preseason game, but he practiced in full all week. He will start at split end for the Seahawks. Sidney Rice, who missed some practice this week, is also expected to be ready to play on Sunday. The Dallas Cowboys have one of the best secondaries in the league, though, so Tate's debut could be a tough one.

Fantasy Impact: Golden Tate's return to the lineup is a positive sign for his long-term fantasy value, but the Cowboys secondary suffocated the Giants' receivers in the season opener. Tate may have a tough time getting open in Sunday's game, so leave him on the bench until he proves himself.
