Golden Tate had three receptions for 68 yards and two touchdowns during Monday night's controversial game between the Seahawks and the Packers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Golden Tate had three receptions for 68 yards and two touchdowns during a controversial game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football.

Tate got 24 yards and one of his touchdowns on a Hail Mary pass from Russell Wilson as time expired that appeared to be intercepted by the Packers, but was ruled a score on the field and after replay review.

Fantasy Impact: Tate had a great day fantasy-wise, assuming his final score is upheld by league commissioners. That is a big if, however, as it is pretty clear that the Packers were robbed of victory on Monday. Going forward, Tate may have a few productive outings as the team's top deep threat, but for the most part he should not be relied on in standard fantasy leagues within a run-heavy offense.
