Texans | Ben Tate placed on IR

Wed, 18 Dec 2013 10:57:40 -0800

The Houston Texans have placed RB Ben Tate (ribs) on Injured Reserve.

Fantasy Tip: Dennis Johnson likely will start the final two games of the season with Tate out. Johnson could be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option for owners in deeper leagues. He likely will be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues than in standard leagues.

Texans | Ben Tate still starter

Mon, 25 Nov 2013 15:52:49 -0800

Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said RB Ben Tate (ribs) will remain the team's starting running back even though RB Dennis Johnson rushed for more yards in the team's Week 12 game. Tate rushed for one yard on seven carries while Johnson rushed for 74 yards on 13 carries.

Fantasy Tip: Tate likely will be a risky play while he is dealing with his injured ribs because he probably will be limited by the injury. Johnson likely will be at least a flex option most weeks.

Texans | Ben Tate probable

Fri, 08 Nov 2013 14:18:38 -0800

Houston Texans RB Ben Tate (ribs) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 8, and is listed as probable for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Tate probably will get most of the work at running back as long as he is able to play with the injury. He should be seen as a No. 2 running back or a flex option. Dennis Johnson could be a flex option in deeper leagues because he will play when Tate needs a break.
