Ben Tate barely played against the Dolphins. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans RB Ben Tate had a quiet day in Week 1, getting only 5 rushes for 6 yards as the Texans beat the Miami Dolphins 30-10. He added 3 catches for 22 yards.

Fantasy Impact: With starter Arian Foster missing practice time earlier this week, it was thought that Tate would see more playing time, but Foster's injury ended up being a non-issue as he racked up 26 carries Sunday. So Tate's Week 1 is a wash for fantasy owners, but he's still one of the most valuable handcuffs in the league and should see plenty of snaps throughout the season. The Texans play the Jaguars in Week 2
